No, No, NoNot a Trekkie. But I love the original Star Trek. Which was fine as it was.
There'll be a new film, and they will be doing a reboot of the original, as they have officially run out of ideas for the franchise. Thing is, though I love Galactica, similarly rebooted, and in fact completely recreated as though the first one never was, the reason they could re-imagine the whole thing (though there are a few insane souls who still insist the original was better) was that the original was a complete cheesefest looked back upon with affection, but mostly on grounds of campiness. The original Star Trek is, by contrast, known and beloved worldwide, and has been a very long time. These are difficult icons to mess with, and they have a rather...peculiar fan base, as we all know. One that is very committed, and some--some--of whom, well, should be.
New Kirk. New Spock. New Uhura. Bad idea.
