yes please Star TrekNow that Star Trek Into Darkness has come and gone and been furiously argued about, Trek has receded from the limelight just a little bit. No doubt it will kick
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."
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.Star Trek fandom
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.(via catnipsoup)
