Bryan Fuller Wants Star Trek Back On TV, Angela Bassett In The Captain’s Chair

darkkaomi:

From ontd_startrek:

He wants to team up with Bryan Singer to make it happen.

…Fuller, who created such memorable but short-lived shows as Pushing Daisies and Wonderfalls, had actually been trying to get a new Star Trek TV series going last year, collaborating with another Brian: director Brian Singer (X-Men: Days of Future Past). Apparently the two had each been brainstorming a new Trek TV pitch, and eventually decided to pool their resources to try and make it happen. The scuttlebutt at the time was that Fuller and Singer wanted to do a TV spinoff set on the U.S.S. Reliant, presumably still set within the “new” continuity of Abrams’ movies…

And he has his captain and first officer already in mind.

"Yeah, I think let [the adventures of the Enterprise] be the movies and let that be their story. I would love to do something on the Reliant. I want Angela Lansbury… Not Lansbury! I want Angela Bassett to be the captain, that’s who I would love to have, you know Captain Angela Bassett and First Officer Rosario Dawson. I would love to do that version of the show and but that’s in the future to be told."

yes please Star Trek
"Initially, Filmation was only going to use the voices of William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan and Majel Barrett. Doohan and Barrett would also perform the voices of Sulu and Uhura. Leonard Nimoy refused to sign up to lend his voice to the series unless Nichelle Nichols and George Takei were added to the cast — claiming that Sulu and Uhura were of importance as they were proof of the ethnic diversity of the 23rd century and should not be recast. Nimoy also took this stand as a matter of principle, as he knew of the financial troubles many of his Star Trek co-stars were facing after cancellation of the series."

sadspockpanda:

but like the disrespect towards women (in the reboot and in the fandom in general) in star trek is especially saddening considering how much women MADE the fandom and were the primary reason star trek even exists the way it does today

without bjo trimble using her web of fellow fans to organize the letter campaign to nbc, star trek would have been cancelled after the second season

which would have prevented it from being shown in syndication (shows needed three seasons at least in order to qualify), which means it wouldn’t have gained an eveN BIGGER following which allowed for the movies to be made or for the future series to even have existed

so, really, people should be saying “i wish guys were as big of fans of trek as women”, because really, really, men can never on this front okay i’m sorry

that last paragraph is basically perfect. as is the rest of this.

Nichelle Nichols frequently tells a story of getting into a dispute with director Marc Daniels over the filming of this episode. As it had already been established that Uhura’s first language was Swahili, Nichols believed that, after her mind was erased, Uhura would revert to her first language. However, as Nichols herself did not speak Swahili, Daniels wanted Uhura to just speak English. Nichols refused to, telling Daniels, “Nichelle Nichols doesn’t speak Swahili, but Uhura does!” Gene Roddenberry was eventually brought in to settle the dispute, and he sided with Nichols. A linguist specializing in Swahili was then brought in to write the few lines of Swahili that are spoken in the episode. (Memory Alpha)

"Let’s face it, the romantic scene between the Romulan Commander and Spock [in “The Enterprise Incident”] was totally out of context. Any Romulan worth her salt would have instantly suspected Spock because they are related races. That was wrong…my biggest objection is the scene between Spock and the woman, because I really did not believe it. And I did not believe that the Romulan did not suspect Spock of something underhanded. She does know enough about Vulcan and Vulcans to know that something’s afoot."

D. C. Fontana on changes made to her script for “The Enterprise Incident”, quoted in Captains Logs by Edward Gross and Mark A. Altman, 1995.

I think “The Enterprise Incident” is one of my favourite TOS episodes, and the Romulan Commander was so much stronger and more interesting than most of the other women guest stars we got to see. But I was really interested to see that D.C. Fontana had envisioned her as even smarter and less susceptible to romantic emotions than she ended up being on screen.

The ‘blinded by love’ bs is what kept me from liking that episode, so I’m glad to know that originally it wasn’t supposed to be that way.. New canon acquired.
