I think it could do very well. I don't really know how else to say it, though, but they might have to dumb it down a bit. Not in terms of the story or the depth, but some of the Trek lingo is hard to follow for some. That's a big reason my friends don't watch it; It's hard for them to figure out what's going on with the ship, or what alien people or technology is threatening the crew.
When I watch the show, I can follow along just fine; I understand more of the science on Star Trek than anything I've learned in actual science courses. But I think that would be the only roadblock; Everything else would entertain everyone, I feel.
Why are there six pedals if there are only four directions!?
