With the successful reboot of Star Trek on the big screen, some of you may be wondering could such a thing happen for Next Generation?
A few weeks ago, Marina Sirtis hinted that she felt this was the way the spin-off of the popular series could go and now Data himself says that a reboot could happen in a couple of years.
Talking to Trek Movie, Spiner says, “I do think it is likely they will reboot Next Generation some day. I don’t see Star Trek ever ending. I think it would better if they went further into the future, past were we did or the original series or Voyager or Deep Space or any of them, and continues the saga. I am not that keen on going backwards because then it becomes history instead of the future.”
Spiner says that he hasn’t revisited Next Generation on Blu-Ray yet and that he rarely watches old episodes from the series’ seven year run.
“It was like “what do I watch, old episodes of the show I did or Boardwalk Empire? I think I’ll watch Boardwalk Empire,” he says.
