Default Variation on 3D Star Trek Movie - A Question

I wonder, though it would seem out of the question at this point...

Could a ST movie be made or even practical using techniques that were developed in "Avitar"? Basically a highly detailed 3D-CG animation.

Could "Unknown Worlds and Aliens" be figuratively created for a real story that most fans could enjoy?

I personally could appreciate the unlimited creativity that the medium could produce. Would "Animating" the crew and settings (to the current point of believability) work in the Trek world?

Just curious.

I think that they could certainly use a level of Avatar style technology in creating truly alien and far off worlds the likes of which Trek had not had the resources to depict previously, but I think it would have be done by using the actors themselves and not CGI variations of them.

I'm still not sure where Paramount is re shooting the sequel in 3D anyway, but it's been a rumour certainly (and Abrams was asked if he wanted to shoot the first film in 3D but declined) fror quite some time and with many other major projects working on a 3D basis it's possible.

But, yep, I would be interested in seeing what kind of weird and wonderful environments that kind of technology might be able to realise within the Star Trek universe.

I think Trek doesn't need 3D. It can only take away from the story.

Ultimately, that will be Paramount's/the director's decision to make however.

I would like to see "Going to Warp" in 3D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But which style would look best? TOS Movie, TNG Movie, or STXI style?

Going into orbit, with 3D visuals from that vantage would also be great!

Yes, the "Worlds" that could be created...3D or not, would give a 21st Century enhancement to the look of the future.

Still would be interesting to see something "experimental" in presentation for ST. It could base the "story" on a short with a corresponding screen time. Sort of like a 10-15 minute length. It's not like the "experimental" has never been tried with several premises. Many of them worked well for the one time viewing, but were never intended for becoming a fixed medium style. Some TV series have even tried "LIVE" broadcasts, and 3D, albeit with mixed results, but the one-time premise made them interesting.
