Star Trek - Reincarnated from the Genesis Planet!

Recommended Posts

The more and more I hear about the Picard show the more I think it’s going to be a hit and I am irrationally mad at DST we don’t have TNG mates. GET IT TOGETHER CHUCK!

But guys, Next Gen doesn't have a proven track record of successful merchandising like Kingdom Hearts, Bruce Lee, or Sonic the Hedgehog.

Your sarcasm hurts me.

At this point TNG doesn't actually have a proven record of merchandising, not with action figures anyway.

Yeah, except for all those action figures, vehicles and play accessories Playmates made between 1992 and 2009 and the figures Art Asylum and DST produced since 2001, there’s been no interest for decades.

I had a coworker the other day tell me that my Star Trek reference was outdated.

Maybe people just don't care about Star Trek anymore.

I think that's true; even with the new movies, Star Trek has slipped pretty far down the pop culture hivemind ladder, and I'm not sure most Trekkies quite understand that yet (at least not the ones that write into AskDST). That doesn't mean I don't think a Next Generation box set wouldn't be a good idea. I think that Chuck's one of those guys that thinks the original show is the center of Trek fandom, and doesn't understand that, for a whole lot of people, TNG is the definitive Star Trek show.

I'm also of the mind that a TNG box set (or two) would be an excellent idea. I just can't see it happening.

Well hopefully this weekend changes his mind as the number of impressions this week for the show have been staggering. I don’t think that it has fallen too far out of favour I think the reboot series though didn’t help matters. Where as even Will Wheaton’s appearances on Big Bang Theory (groan) helped elevate the brand. At the end of the day they really should be treated as two distinct properties and TNG deserves to be explored even if it is just two 4-packs.

Hopefully the merger between CBS and Viacom — and subsequent reunification of the Star Trek franchise — will change things for the better.

Praise. I remember working on stuff for Idol when it was a FOX show but at a Disney Park.... not the greatest.
