How Zabel and JMS were going to “reboot” Star Trek

JMS has mentioned in the past about how he was involved with a pitch to Paramount about helping out the flailing Star Trek franchise. Well, Bryce Zabel (The Crow: Stairway to Heaven), who met JMS on a plane and suddenly was teaming with him, details the plan on his website. Think a “re-imagining” of the original series, much like Battlestar Galactica. Would the hardcore fans really have followed as they say? Remember, this was before Galactica got the treatment, and those fans perhaps weren’t quite as rabid…Updated: Correct link now…really… 🙂

ReCannoned, not rebooted
I think it would be best to setup a group to over see reviewing all Star Trek media including TV shows, movies, animated series, books, comics and even games to decide what is cannon and what isn’t. They could seriously shape the series that way and make it more stable for future stories. The group would also provide oversight into the release of stories, no matter the format.
I’m not a big fan of the redone version of BG. For me, it lost much of the flavor of the original series.
