Moore is less

If they offered him a new Star Trek series on a silver platter, he'd think about it. Please. Rather, please don't. We don't need another mushy soap opera. TOS was plot driven science fiction action adventure. He thinks he's far better than he is. It's no wonder they threw him off of Voyager. He has no ideas. I hate people stories. Pegasis sucked. The bonding was latter retold better. The defector was a hackneyed idea. He made the Klingons and all the alien races seem ridiculous.

Re: Moore is less

“I think ,at the moment, the franchise is in good hands. J.J. Abrams has a really good take on it, I thought the last movie was very good. I’m confident that he’s going to chart a direction for Star Trek for the foreseeable future.”

Ballz.
Compared to that, I'd weep with joy for a Moore Trek show.
Actually, I think either way, I'll wind up weeping.
gah.

You don't see the irony of that statement?

So would I. "Trek fan would consider making own Trek show" isn't a ground-breaking idea.

With great characters.

He thinks he's far better than he is.
Don't we all? I know I do.

It's no wonder they threw him off of Voyager.
He quit, but your attempt at trolling is noted.

He has no ideas.
Sure he does. They might not be very good, but he still has them.

I hate people stories.
Might I direct you to the science fiction tales of Albert Macklin? He likes robots.

Pegasis sucked.
Are you talking about the TNG episode or the BSG episode? Because I loved both.

The bonding was latter retold better.
Eh, The Bonding's not great. I don't think anyone has ever claimed that The Bonding is a TNG classic.

The defector was a hackneyed idea.
Perhaps so, but it was so well written that it became a classic. And that wasn't even a pure RDM episode, he once said in an interview that that was an example of an episode which had to be rewritten very quickly so Michael Piller assigned different writers different parts of of the episode and they threw it all together. Moore got the credit because he wrote the first draft.

He made the Klingons and all the alien races seem ridiculous.
Klingons? Understandable. What other races did he ruin?

Umm... Klingons and other races on Star Trek are ridiculous.

Also, BSG was one of the finest television dramas ever.

Re: Moore is less

If Moore was offered another series, would the deleted scenes make up more than half of the important plot of said series?

HA! I can just see the previously on recaps at the beginning now, showing a bunch of deleted scenes.

Re: Moore is less

'The Bonding' became 'Hollow Pursuits' - a much better episode. The Defector was his best idea. The Klingon in the Chase was ridiculous. Alien races were just not depicted very well in the latter part of TNG.

How the hell are The Bonding and Hollow Pursuits similar at all?

Re: Moore is less

The Bonding was originally about the kid recreating his mother in the holosuite. The other story just sucks.

Re: Moore is less

I just don't understand all this vitriol about Roger Moore.


One of my pet peeves is people who go off on a rant and expect people to know what they are talking about while providing little or no clues.
I'm guessing there's some recent interview with Ron Moore where the subject of Star Trek comes up, but the OP offers us no clues how to find it, and only oblique clues to it's existence at all.
You don't need to treat us like idiots (say, explaining that Star Trek was a tv show), but it would be nice if you gave us some clue what you were talking about before you start foaming at the mouth.

All I can say is I think Moore was passable as James Bond, but I do prefer Sean Connery.

YES

I think Moore could make a pretty damn compelling Trek series. He's got the resume for it
