Re: Make up a fake bit of Trek trivia!

FACT: A Star Trek/Star Wars crossover was considered in the 80s and endorsed by George Lucas, but several key Star Wars actors couldn't do it due to schedule conflicts, so the whole thing had to be dropped. We got Trek V instead.

You didn't see the Enterprise in ROTS or the Millennium Falcon in First Contact?

FACT: The Enterprise D was going to be destroyed by a Ferengi freighter in Generations. Braga nixed it after a test audience found it too implausible.

SUPPLEMENTARY FACT: ILM even did some preliminary work on the proposed crossover before it was scrapped.

Re: Make up a fake bit of Trek trivia!

FACT: Genevieve Bujold was actually playing Captain Janeway for the entire seven-year run of Voyager. She just does a really, really good Kate Mulgrew impression.

FACT: Andy Kaufman was slated to play the part of Xon if Star Trek: Phase II went to series.

FACT: Star Trek V was bad on purpose. It was actually an elaborate psychological test to measure the tolerance of Star Trek fans.

Re: Make up a fake bit of Trek trivia!

Star Wars was going to be Star Trek, but George Lucas couldn't get the rights . . . .

The tribbles were actually gerbils in costume.

Re: Make up a fake bit of Trek trivia!

Fact: Sean Kenney, who played the crippled Captain Christopher Pike in "The Menagerie," was actually the illegitimate son of Jeffrey Hunter, who played Captain Pike in "The Cage," and actress Tura Santana.

Fact: Genevieve Bujold's Star Trek: Voyager contract was so well negotiated by her agent that, even though she quit the series of her own accord, she was still contractually entitled to her full first year's salary. Kate Mulgrew secured the role of Captain Janeway in large measure by agreeing to help Paramount out of this costly debacle by agreeing to split her first season's salary with Bujold.
