While Star Trek fans eagerly await the franchise's return to the small screen, some have suggested this take the form of a Next Generation reboot. In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Phillip Gilfus, Darren Moser, and Daniel Proulx discuss what a TNG reboot might look like. Should it be Prime Universe or Abramsverse? Should it take on a more serialized format? What are some of the possible storylines? We discuss all of these questions and more to decide wether or not we think a TNG reboot is a good idea. Oh… and what about casting?!
