When the new Star Trek film debuted in 2009, many dramatic predictions of doom by the fanbase followed. For my part, I wasn’t particularly worried, having been through the first revival of the franchise back in ’87, and knowing of the elasticity of Trek since 1966. In fact, in a climate where revamps, reboots, relaunches, launch-boots, reimaginings and what-have-you are the norm, I felt that Star Trek was more deserving of the treatment than, say, Jet Jaguar or Space Ranger. In fact, I’d even go a step further and speculate on the next big revampticated sensation: Breakin’ 2013 – The Next Boogalation! With some updated settings and some awesome street dancing, Ozone and Kelly’s kid can team up with a new generation to save more youth centers from Shooter McGavin!
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) reminds that there ain’t no stopping’ us, not even oncoming traffic or municipal laws, asking: What property, movie, cartoon or whatever is most deserving of a “Next Generation?”
