Bryan Fuller Talks New Star Trek Series

After the demise of Enterprise, the franchise went on a bit of a break and a of a shake up. Now that JJ Abrams is revitalizing Star Trek with a new movie, that relaunches the franchise with new actors playing Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock. Questions immediately arose about whether Paramount would sieze the opertunity to make a new Star Trek series.

Bryan Fuller, creator and executive producer of ABC’s hit series Pushing Daisies, as well as a former producer of Star Trek: Voyager, told MTV.com "I would love to do another Star Trek series." Fuller, who was also a writer and producer on Heroes during the first season, elaborated that the Star Trek he would create would be "One where you could go back to the spirit and color of the original Star Trek, because somehow, it got cold over the years. I love Next Generation,’ but it’s a little cooler and calmer than the ones from the ’60s, which were so dynamic and passionate."

Fuller went on to say "Star Trek’ has to recreate itself. Otherwise, all the characters start to feel the same. You always have a captain, a doctor, a security officer, and you have the same arguments based on those perspectives. It starts to feel too familiar. So all those paradigms where it takes place on a starship have to be shaken up."
