Wishful Casting A Star Trek TV Series Reboot

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.

Jason Statham Is Not Here For The Nerdy Nonsense

The folks at Total Film asked a bunch of actors/directors at various press junkets whether they would be interested in being a part of the new Star Wars franchise and the majority of them were all for it for various reasons (being big nerds like Joss Whedon and Eli Roth or just wanting to work with JJ Abrams like Rachel Weisz and Mark Walberg) but Jason Statham could not be bothered to care.

Star Wars: Into Darkness (Fake) Trailer

It was inevitable once J.J. Abrams was announced as having been chosen to shepherd the further adventures of Disney’s newly acquired Star Wars franchise but that doesn’t diminish the coolness factor of what a fan envisions an Abram’s Star Wars trailer would possibly look like.

The Daily Nerdgasm: Troy & Abed in Engineering!

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.

My 5 Unpopular Star Trek Opinions

Any fan of Star Trek worth his or her gold-pressed latinum holds the same opinion on certain facets of the Trek franchise: Kirk is a big ol’ pimp; Wrath of Khan is the best of the movies; The Best of Both Worlds is the best of the TNG TV show; Janeway’s hair bun was a miracle of modern science; Wesley Crusher was an abomination and Bearded Riker was way better than Clean Shaven Riker. But we all also have less than popular opinions that put us at odds with the rest of the fandom. So sit back, set phasers to stun and engage your way past the jump to see my unpopular Star Trek opinions.
