ST Uncharted

Found this article on TrekMovie.com, not certain if this goes in Fan Productions or not (so Mods please move), but with all the Fan Films dropping Paramount's name - I thought it would be a good start.

I am reading the script now on www.startrekuncharted.com/

TrekMovie has learned that Michael Gummelt, owner of www.StarTrekUncharted.com (formerly www.StarTrekBeyond.com) and creator of the fan concept of the same name has been invited by Paramount to pitch his idea for a new Star Trek television series to the network, an unprecedented opportunity rarely (if ever) afforded to non-industry professionals. The concept, now titled Star Trek Uncharted, has been in the works for 20 years and takes place 30 years after the time of Captain Kirk and the original Enterprise.

Re: ST Uncharted

Good lord. That guy (Gummelt) sure likes to self-congratulate himself, doesn't he?

Is it possible that the suits at Paramount knew that they wanted the "Beyond" title and are just doing this to placate the guy? I don't for a minute believe they'd be interested in a 20-year old idea from a fan...

More importantly, I'd certainly take this story a little more seriously of Trekmovie had a better reputation for some of its news, and I'd love to hear from a source other than Gummelt himself to verify this. Otherwise it's just a lot of noise that will (most likely) go nowhere.

How much you want to bet we'll soon hear that the "meeting went very well" and that he "can't discuss any details".

Re: ST Uncharted

Sources say Paramount wanted the URL to "Star Trek Beyond", the title of ST3, and so rather than suing for the title, which they own the rights to, they got it in exchange for a 15 minute meeting. Saves $ and time.

Re: ST Uncharted

They would not sue they will just take it , they will notify the domain registrar of the trademark infringement and it will get transferred to them. I have seen big company's do it this way a few times. It's really a matter of PR by taking a fans domain that other fans know about. Would he be allowed to do a pitch and keep startrekbeyond.com we shall see..

You think I am going to name the people who pass on inside information just because you want to know?

You don't want to believe it, don't.

Of course not. Still, I don't know you friend. And Trek fans (in my experience) love to bloat their insider knowledge, so technically my point still stands - without any kind of confirmation or source, it's really just heresay.

That doesn't mean I don't believe you, it just means until I have a reason not to, I take it with a grain of salt.

No need to get testy. It's Friday!

Re: ST Uncharted

Indeed!

Yes, you should ALWAYS take things on the Internet with a hefty heaping of salt!

And I offered up what I know. I wouldn't post it if it was just a rumor to me. My sources are working with the parties involved.

That being said, it is a great story none the less, but less significant than I think it is being made out to be.

I'm reading that, too. I've finished the first three acts, and I'm bored out of my mind.
