nah. i think it's good advice. in fact, i think i have far less leverage in a traditional approach.
You've created a legal minefield that CBS simply won't touch. If someone here gives you advice that you incorporate into your "series", they can sue both you and CBS for creator credits and cash.

You doomed yourself the moment you clicked 'Submit New Thread'.
i disagree, and feel that every approach of mine can be managed/mitigated.
If you really think that, then you're wrong.

If you're serious about being a professional screenwriter (forget Trek). Then were I you: I'd get my ass into a film business class, a writing class, and find an entertainment lawyer who will advice you on what you're dong wrong or audit a class on entertainment law.

He's right, you've nearly fucked yourself and you don't even see or want to admit it.
