With it being reported a while ago that Roberto Orci, one of the minds behind the JJ Abrams STAR TREK feature film reboot, had meetings with CBS to bring Trek back to television, it got me thinking about what type of show I’d like to see. Amidst all my thoughts about a Starfleet Academy show or a show about the shadowy Section 31 agents, I had the bright idea that maybe the new TV show should be a reboot of THE NEXT GENERATION. That way the movie and TV universes could remain separate but equal. And right after my idea of a TNG reboot I had the even brighter idea to do a wishful casting post where I cast the TNG roles myself. So click onward to boldly go where my little brain has decided to take me.
Mixing Troy and Abed from Community with Data and Geordie from Star Trek: The Next Generation is about as right a mash-up as chocolate and peanut butter.
And the fine folks over at the Tumblr blog Troy and Abed in Engineering have a field day amalgamating the two sets of Tv show bros to make a pretty funny little spot on the Intranetz.
Plus they get extra points for making Worf be Senor Chang.
