ron moore star trek syfyFile this news under things that are way too awesome to ever actually happen ... Battlestar Galactica creator Ronald D. Moore says he would consider producing a new Star Trek TV series.

OK, let's get serious here. This will probably never happen. I'm sorry, but it's true. CBS Corp. holds the rights to the Star Trek TV franchise, and they currently have no plans to do anything with it. Plus, a new Ron Moore-produced Trek series is just too great a thing to ever exist in a world where blue cat people get nominated for Oscars.

There are lots of reasons I'd love to see Moore return to the franchise, not the least of which is the fact that he wrote and produced some of the finest hours of Trek during his ten-year stint working on The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine. And let's not forget to hail the man for his excellent work on Battlestar and Caprica, two of the most daring, uncompromising and compelling sci-fi shows of the past decade.

In an interview with Den of Geek, in which Moore says he would consider returning to Trek, he applauds J.J. Abrams' new take on the franchise and says, "I'm confident that he's going to chart a direction for Star Trek for the foreseeable future."

So lemme get this straight. We have Ron Moore saying that he would seriously consider making a Star Trek TV show that would most likely take place in the amazing new movie universe created by J.J. Abrams? OK, I've changed my mind. This is happening. This has to happen. This must happen. So how do we make it happen?
