    They would've dumped it very fast in the 70's, 80's and 90's as well if they had the access to all the things we have now. Trek came at the right time to capitalize on a changing culture and it helped being the only game in town.

    I don't believe Trek will ever again have the long term success in had over those thirty years. For a long time, it was King. But all King's eventually die.

    I hope I'm as much fun as Trek when I'm on the verge of death.

    Do you remember how after he was dug up Richard III was again hot? EVERYONE was talking about him..

    This is what the future will be for Trek, the King.

    I do love that people are giving us richly over the top rhetoric about "fundamentalists" at the same time as portraying Bob Orci as an "artist."

    Fact is, I really wanted the discussion of "fundamentalists" to go away. That's not what we're here for.

    Talk about the possibility of a TV series; talk about Orci's comments on the subject; talk about potential audience for such a series generally, if we must, but let's steer away from criticism of specific segments of the fan base, as that tends not to end well.

    Amen to that. So to speak.

    It would be awesome if this were a reference to the Marvell Cosmetology brand... :)

    Y'know, James Cawley is an Elvis impersonator...

    ...and he HAS stepped down as Kirk in Phase II...

    The mind boggles.
