From the article:

Quote:

Writers were reminded to 'build your episode on an action-adventure frame-work. We must reach out, hold and entertain a mass audience of some 20,000,000 people or we simply won't say on the air.'

^JJ Abrams must have snuck those lines in there. I bet the paper doesn't match the rest.

What do they mean, "unearthed?" That's the same version of the writers' guide I bought from Lincoln Enterprises decades ago -- it's on my shelf not four feet from me right now. There are a gazillion copies of it out there already.

What he said. Plus the majority of what is in that guide was also printed in The Making of Star Trek, which sold another gazillions of copies.

And whose copy does the Daily Mail happen to "unearth"?

Well, there's always some "how did this politician screw up today?" or "Naked, jilted ex-lover butchers boyfriend over TV remote" story they can exploit.

...on second thought, maybe a ST story that's not really news was a good choice.

The writer of that article seems to have a tendency toward the overly dramatic. According to him, the Guide's mention that the uniforms have no pockets is "hilarious." :D
