    Is this even possible? I have quite an imagination.

    I imagine it would take serious connections...

    Has anyone ever thought of this?

    Man, doing this successfully and hitting it big and making people enjoy this while creating brilliant plots and episodes would be an absolute dream come true.

    So what would it take to pull this off?

    Talking about it on a Internet board isn't part of it, I think.

    Nothing wrong with getting ideas and opinions.

    "Captain Worf" is not a good title, a Star Trek show is never about one person.

    First step: Get a job in Hollywood writing for some boring-ass formulaic sitcom or cop show for years and years. Gotta pay your dues!

    Then, once you've worked your way into a position where you can get past CBS security, convince Les Moonves that Star Trek is worth bothering with.

    Or, just acknowledge that most TV writing is dreadful because it's goverened by the needs of advertisers to have a zombified audience to sell shit to. The odds of having the opoortunity to work on anything worthwhile, or that remotely expresses your or anyone else's creative vision, are pretty low.

    Write novels instead. You'll have a lot more creative freedom.

    Or maybe look into all those low busget internet series popping up all over the place. There, you at least have the possibility of doing somethng interesting (although personally I've yet to see a sci fi internet series where something didn't immediately turn me off, usually the acting, oddly enough...)

    If the writers of Star Trek '09 can't even get CBS to approve a series, what makes you think that Some Guy Posting On An Internet Bulletin Board With No Writing Credits To His Name (SGPOAIBBWNWCTHN) will have any better luck?

    Already got that covered. :lol:

    But seriously, Shatner was in pretty good shape for most of TOS.

    Sometimes novels get turned into movies, that was how J.R. Tolkein got his movies produced, long after his death.

    Wow, Tolkien was haunting studio executives? Or was it just Peter Jackson?
