Competition: write an episode of Star Trek Continues

The crew of 'Star Trek Continues' are looking for script writers for future productions. There are six days left for entry. A great opportunity for Trek fans to have their work seen.

no matter how good the script, words just sound insincere coming from vic mignogna's mouth.

I'd be a bit concerned about the legalities of winning money for producing a piece of work that infringes someone's copyright.

And I wonder if the prize winnings are in addition to WGA minimums, or in lieu of them.

Re: Competition: write an episode of Star Trek Continues

I wish I'd found out about this sooner than Friday. I have an idea for a story that I feel has potential but I don't think I can develop it in time. Does anyone know if they're going to be doing this again in the future?

Re: Competition: write an episode of Star Trek Continues

This seemed to go under the rader. They didn't seem to really get the word out on this — wasn't on their FB page or Twitter that I can tell. But maybe I'm missing something. And I don't really keep track of news on their website. However, the apparent lack of publicizing the contest creates the perception that they weren't really interested in getting submissions. But that's just my take on it, YMMV.

Re: Competition: write an episode of Star Trek Continues

Wow, people are really starting to poke around the edges of what's legal here. I just had a conversation with our entertainment law attorney at work the other day (he cleared all the Namco characters for Wreck-It Ralph, so he knows what he's taking about) and he explained to me the legal realities of some of the stuff that fans do thinking it's okay but which would mean lawsuit if Paramount ever got the slightest itch to do so. He said typically the only reason most companies don't crack down on these things more often is because they fear bad publicity more than such an infringement.

Boy, Serling really had an axe to grind with TOS...Is this from that grainy 1970 interview over at YouTube?

I don't think Serling had an axe to grind at all. He was merely giving his opinion on STAR TREK, expressing frustration with a series that had so much potential, that could sparkle, as he said, but often fell short. An opinion also expressed by Harlan Ellison as well, who had an actual axe to grind over his own episode.

And while STAR TREK is my first science-fiction love, I don't see it with a haze. It has its faults and cracks. Honestly, THE TWILIGHT ZONE was more consistent in quality than TOS. So was THE OUTER LIMITS.

Serling had no ax to grind. What he says is pretty much dead-on accurate which is why I quoted him. And it's from a video interview, yes.

I see it as an honest assessment of TOS. At times it shined at times, other times... not so much.

Agreed, seems a pretty spot on assessment to me.

I also agree. And if I had to pick between Roddenberry and Serling as to who knew more about what makes good television - I'd go with Serling every time.
