blockaderunner said:Then why immediately do ENT having learned nothing from VOY? Did they think that the suits would act any differently? Had B&B said "Look. We have a great idea for Series Five, but we want to take at least a year to develop it and refine it and make sure it carries on the grand tradition of Star Trek," Maybe I'd give them some slack. But they took the money and put their flimsy prequel on the fast track to being made and the lies started leaking out: "Of course T'Pol isn't wearing a catsuit". "We know whats going on with the Temporal cold War".
Because Paramount/UPN would have just replaced them and forged ahead with getting another series out.
The very same ultimatum was made with VOY when Berman, Piller and Taylor felt it was too soon to rush out another series but they gave in because they felt they would be better in overseeing it than a new group of producers.
re: T'Pol's outfit
IMO isn't a catsuit and if it is who cares.
And I can't take people seriously when they make up juvenile nicknames such as MooreRon or BooBs etc.
B&B did fight for the series by the way. The suits were very resistant to a prequel. Secondly, the duo did work on the series for a good two years starting in VOY's fifth season.
