Re: New Fan Collective????

I wonder why they didn't release a fantasy/holodeck collective, given how many episodes feature those kinds of stories.

Those episodes aren't exactly fan favourites.

Re: New Fan Collective????

As good as Eye of the Needle is, its not really 'about' the Romulans, per se, is it? But I suppose 'Trouble with Tribbles' wasn't really about the Klingons, and it was on the Klingon collective DVD.

I'd like to see the Vulcan/Romulan fan collective, but a Cardassian fan collective even more. Though I doubt they'd do that, as it would mean four discs of DS9 and one of TNG and Voyager.
Plus for a lot of the Cardassian episodes the DS9 ones had lead in episodes or were arc based.

The Trouble With Tribbles, Trials and Tribble-Ations, and Broken Bow aren't really about Klingons, and they all made it to the Klingon set.

Technically speaking, Year Of Hell isn't really about time travel. Yes, a device is ued which alters the timeline, but not actual time travel happens in the episode. Yet it is still on the set titled Time Travel.

I know its much but I think they should bring all the Episodes in Bold instead of having some , just to have an insight what they are. I too think having these fan collection is great way of having all your episodes instead of having the entire box set.
Anyway there were incidents where Romulans has help the Federation as seen on ST TNG - this should also be included and a back ground story of how the earth Romulan war started.
The Star indicates my favorite episodes
Also I found this gem on Alpa-memory site


"The Romulans would have had a grander future had the animated series Star Trek: Final Frontier been produced instead of Star Trek: set in the a war caused by Omega particle detonations (which was not actually the Romulans' fault) permitted them to conquer Qo'noS, destroy Andoria, and forced the Vulcans to leave the Federation to negotiate reunification. The Earth-Romulan War was also intended to be explored in the fifth season of Star Trek: Enterprise and the film Star Trek: The Beginning, neither of which were produced. Brannon Braga and Manny Coto considered making "Future Guy" a Romulan and revealing T'Pol's father was a Romulan agent."
and

"Diane Duane created her own take on the Romulans in her novels, in which she reveals their true name to be the Rihannsu. Duane also depicted the Romulans as being extinct in the mirror universe novel Dark Mirror, as they chose to commit mass suicide rather than become subjects of the Terran Empirefollowing the Battle of Cheron
Much of the Romulans' origins are explored in the Vulcan's Soul trilogy and the five Rihannsu books. Both sources agree that the exodus was led by S'task, a former disciple of Surak. In Duane's novel The Romulan Way, as the inhabitants of the planet Vulcan turn to the philosophy of Surak en masse, the followers of S'task decide that they can no longer remain on Vulcan. As part of their exodus, they intentionally invent a new culture and a new language. In Vulcan's Soul, the Romulans' ancestors left Vulcan as a contingency plan approved by Surak, should the wars on Vulcan have completely destroyed their civilization. The eagle emblem was inspired by a huge bird native to Romulus that clutched eggs in its talons. "
Interesting

Here's my suggestion: a Vaughn Armstrong fan collective!

(I'm not joking.)

Re: New Fan Collective????

The collectives worked best when they were completist, like the "Borg" or "Q" ones. The time travel one was (inevitably) missing quite a bit, as was the Klingon one. The alternate realities one was a great collection as was the captain's log.


I'd like to see another one eventually.

All the sets with the exception of the Q one (which was literally every Q episode ever) were fan voted episodes thus "Fan Collective"). StarTrek.com had a list of episodes that fans voted for, and the top 10 got selected.

There were some excpetions. The Alternate Reality set included all the MU episodes plus the top 10 other alternate reality timelines. The Captain's Log set included the favourite episode of each captain's actor plus the other top 10 episodes.

I already knew how they were selected, I was just saying that the process meant that episodes that should really have been included(like "assignment earth" for time travel, or "day of the dove" for the Klingons) were not.

How many episodes did she actually appear in, though? Maybe one or two TNG, and one Voyager. Hardly enough for a collective...
