Yeah, good for him. If there is a new series, I hope he's available and wants to do it.

I know what happened to Riker's beard. Ron Moore stole it.

While I like what Ron Moore did for BSG, I'd be more than a little nervous of his idea of a reinvention of TOS. Probably no Federation, at least not the way we think of it, no aliens, and a crew so screwed up I wouldn't trust them with a leaky rowboat in a swimming pool.

Could you imagine Vulcans being more like their Romulan cousins and Kirk would be a chick

I want Moore as far away from a new Trek series as possible. Even at its darkest, DS9 was about people coming together to strive towards (and later protect) something better. Moore is too much of a cynic, IMO, and I think his take on Trek would reflect his views on the future, that not much will change and that most of the problems we face today will still be there...

I had a co-worker who said it best.

"I always hear people talking about how it could be worse. I hardly ever hear anyone talking about how it could be better."

I think this is the problem I would have with a Moore version of TOS, it would be about a future that hasn't actually solved any problems, they've just been shoved under the rug. I could see him having Earth united, but only just barely and through a benevolent, yet oppressive government regime. I could see him wanting to have regular outbreaks of fistfights amongst the lower decks, (because of course, this always happens on modern day naval vessels....NOT.) and of course, McCoy peddaling prescription drugs on the side.

Maybe it's ignorant, naive, and any other adjective you want to throw out there, but I like having the hope for things to get better, rather than giving up and saying that this is the best it can be.

Awww come on, BSG has a Dark Theme all along. Its not lets explore the galaxy peacefully, but lets survive as long as we can. Even Trek deals with this type of drama. Equinox is a fine example.
