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...
