My idea for this series was originally inspired by memories & thoughts of the 4-issue Marvel Comics series Transformers Universe
from the Fall of 1986. Each issue of TU contained biographies for nearly every
TF character there was.
: THIS SERIES IS NOT AN ANTHOLOGY NOR INTENDED TO BE. EVER. AT ALL.
Star Trek:UNIVERSE(s),UNIVERSE, or UNIVERSEs
, would work like this:
*It would be reminiscent, have elements of: Biography,City Confidential,Fields of Honor,Behind the Music, American Justice etc etc & other like TV shows et al.
*Each episode would be biographies about characters in the Trekverse(s), as well as episodes about histories of planets,civilizations,technologies,alternate/parallel universes, other timelines, etc,etc,etc,etc & similar-like documentaries.
*The length of the show
, could vary from a half-hour to 2-hours. More likely 1 or 2 hours. Could vary
*Some episodes would contain multiple bios or histories. An hour show may have 2 bios, or 1 bio & 1 history IE: Dr.Phlox's bio followed by history of Denobula.
A 2 hour show may sometimes have 3-4 bios &/or histories.
*The show would include episodes dealing with ST's EU(s) in the same way as with the standard continuity.
*ST:U(s) would also have episodes about ST's actors, actresses, writers et al etc.
There would be episodes about the EU's (novels,comic books,video games) makers as well, the same way.
*Some, very few
episodes would feature an acted out story following a bio or history. IE: First half-hour or hour bio of Sarek. 2nd hour & a half or hour a ST episode with someone as Sarek, about Sarek's life.
would be episodes entirely
in traditional Trekisode format about some character or era.
*Who should the unseen host/narrator be? Most of the best choices are dead.
: 8-10 1-hour shows a year, like Sopranos? Or 6-7 2-hour TV films, like COLUMBO? Or varying length, half-hour sometimes
to the uber-rare
3-hour show? But episodes usually averaging 90-minutes, ?
*Which TV network?Syndication? HBO?SHOWTIME?Sci-Fi Channel?TNT?The information superhighway?
I hope I explained my idea here successfully. I tried to. If not, let me know in your replies. If somethings unclear, incomplete or other issue/problem, put it in your replies.
