    As much as I like the idea of the alternate timeline created by J.J. Abrams, I really don’t care much for the idea of IDW Comics re-making the original series episodes. The new timeline opened a door to an infinite number of possibilities.It would have been better if they had focused on new adventures and not remake what was already done in the original timeline.

    Honestly, if you want to revisit the original episodes, you need not look any further than your own DVD collection or when the series is being re-ran on your local station.
