Hacky?! By that I assume you mean, written by hacks. Hacks like the great Theodore Sturgeon, Larry Niven, Robert Bloch, Harlan Ellison, Norman Spinrad..
Minor correction: the nitpicker in me is obliged to point out that Niven only wrote for the Animated Series, not TOS.

Perhaps you meant Richard Matheson?

Sometimes I like to think the film Forbidden Planet is the original Star Trek.
You mean it wasn't?




And a big for you, nice work.

This argument got old in 1987 when TNG arrived.
But have it reached a conclusion?

Don't be silly. TOS is near and dear to my heart, and the Trek I grew up on, but even I wouldn't be so presumptuous as to assert that it's the only "true" Trek. The latter series and movies have all contributed to the vast edifice that is Star Trek.

At this point, I kinda want to vaporize the words "true" and "real" from all discussions of Trek, as they're usually just employed as clubs by people who feel their view of what Star Trek "should" be trumps any other approach.
Sorry, but Greg Bear is the only true Greg, so your contributions cannot be relied upon.
I used to joke about putting together an anthology titled THE ULTIMATE GREG, which would feature contributions by Greg Bear, Greg Benford, Greg Egan, Greg Costikyan, Gregory Frost, and John Gregory Betancourt.

I'd edit it and write the jacket copy, of course!

Art Fern is a character that Johnny Carson used to play during sketches on The Tonight Show. Basically a used-car-salesman type who had a bad hairpiece and loud red jacket and was very hyper and almost manic. Every so often he'd stop what he was saying and go "Now back to our feature film...Woody Harrelson, Woody Allen, Woody Woodpecker, Woody Herman, Herman Munster, and Yutz the Dancing Buffalo, in Heidi Suffers an Estrogen Avalanche" or something like that.

actually, I think I'd read that, but most of the authors' work I like are novels, not short stories.
