Re: The BBC should be given the chance to make a new star trek

I think it was Neyrs who mentioned it back-thread (forgive me if I got the credit wrong) but I think a British-Made "Upstairs-Downstairs"-like Star Trek is inspired...the stories of the crew (and families?) belowdecks...what it really takes to run a Startship, other than asking Scotty for more power...more stories in whatever equivalent to 10-Forward there would be...not getting that promotion...not getting that woman/man...screwing up in the astrophysics lab...sure, Command would figure, but the bulk of the storycarrying would rest on the crew's shoulders...a BIG thumbs up to this, IMHO...
For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love.
