    I couldn't get through the proposal, but the only thing I can think of is this:-

    To my knowledge, there have been about 40+ sci-fi comedies.

    The only ones that can truly be regarded as a success spanning multiple seasons over several years are Futurama and Red Dwarf.

    Would any TV executive dream of greenlighting a comedy that not only has to overcome the anti-sci fi comedy hurdles to match that, but also tears the guts out of a franchise with 500+ hours dedicated to it?

    Or to look at it another way, would the showrunners of Law and Order greenlight a police sitcom with the Law and Order name?

    We all remember how well the Starsky & Hutch movie went down!

    Hmm, don't thin anyone's mentioned it, but... the BBC series 'Hyperdrive'. Bringing teh funni to scifi comedy.

    Actually, I prefer 'miserable failure that was oddly renewed a couple of times', but what do i know?

    Oh,and I checked imdb, i can't find an entry under that name, whereas at least 5 of those who replied i'm pretty sure do have listings there.

    Coming back to this comment, wasn't Star Trek initially compared by Gene Roddenberry to Horatio Hornblower ?

    Not to mention "Wagon Train to the Stars."

    This thread is still around? :lol:

    Space shows are already rare enough. Comedy can be done anywhere.

    Yeah but Star Trek comedy doesn't quite seem to fit.

    It's been well over a year now, and 2014 is drawing to a close. Can we assume by now that his attempt failed ? He said he'd come back to tell us, of course.

    You would be correct; his work and education page on his Facebook now has no mention of Star Trek.

    It may be coming up on the Day of the Dead, but that's no excuse for resurrecting a year+ dead thread.

    Already reported my own post here. Let's lay this to rest, in the spirit of the season.

    Please don't tell me that you were actually following this guy for over a year thinking that this was actually going to happen, were you?

    No. I had this thread bookmarked because of the very interesting information in it, and noted that Zekkie never returned.

    I wasn't aware that bumping old threads was against the rules.

    Generally, if the thread is more than 6 months old, unless you have something of relevance and content to add to it (other than 'hey, look who's not back yet'), it's best to leave it alone.
