He's a great director but he hasn't done any sci-fi or action-heavy movies and that could be a little worrisome. I like the idea of James Cameron or Bryan Singer, though.

Steven Spielberg for his experience. Joss Wheadon for his writing and character abilities.

Actually, yeah. Now that you come to mention it, I think he could. (Although the closest thing I can think of that he's done might be "Willow")

My favourite directors are Tim Burton and Terry Gilliam, but they might both come across as a little too oddball.

Perhaps Chris Columbus??

Chris Columbus could work or Joss Whedon!

I'd love to see Tim Burtons vision of Star Trek.

Johnny Depp as the Captain I guess!

Yes, Cameron or Singer would be good.
I was sooo excited when Spielberg took on War Of The Worlds, I thought it would be the greatest movie ever...but it left me pretty hollow inside, a very poor effort.

Tim Burton movies generally look great but are just bad films. Edward Scissorhands excepted. I could not see him doing trek.
Christopher columbus i think would do something very similar to Rick Berman.
Ron Howard would be excellent. Even if the story was bad you would come away thinking about how great the film looked and how great the acting was.
War of the World's was pretty bad but A.I was pretty darn good.

.......Hmmmm. How bout' Nicholas Meyer. Trek never went wrong with him. I wish he would've directed more of the films. Hell, even Nimoy wasn't bad.

Thanks! He really hasn't done too many movie productions surprisingly. I managed to watch "Time After Time", and thought it was alright. It has David Warner who was in Trek V and VI.

Hehe, forget bringing back Kirk. Let's bring back Nick Meyer!
