Ideas are qualitative and inversely proportional to the approach and execution. If ideas are a dime a dozen and meaningless, then what was the point of getting rid of Drexler on Space Command? Star Trek is the only place where story concepts are not king. Doug was there to conceptualize the universe. Another casualty of power and politics. Zicree is full of himself. It would have helped if he got out of his own way.
You're basically restating my point and not effectively countering it.

Reality: Like him or not, Zicree has some track record writing TV shows, so he brings an idea and practical experience to the table, to which an artist like Drexler brings something else. But if a fan has an idea for a TV show/movie/whatever but no practical/proven experience, that's a different and far-riskier proposition for the pro, and they wisely give situations like that a wide berth.

That's like marrying someone for money.

Re: Doud Drexler and startup

Actually, I think a fan with a great idea for a pilot should simply step over someone like Doud Drexled and start romancing Christy Walton. She is the world's richest woman. After she is seduced into marriage, her love and her $25.3 billion fortune would surely allow for production of any project. The integrity of the franchise, as envisioned, would be preserved.... well out of reach of the clutches of anyone who would want to interfere.

.....Does anyone have her email?

Re: Doud Drexler and startup

She wants your ideas, does she? Try romancing the sultan of Brunaii. You get F'd either way, and all for a good cause. I'm still trying to romance Jessica Simpson.

Um, is she pretty?

I don't think that you should do that.

If you do, then have mercy.
