    Is that the one from Michael Piller? I do have one Making of Insurrection book, but that's more of a standard Making Of book.

    I sent color xeroxes ... I still have the original, though it is yellowing in spots! If my wife ever has the inclination, maybe I can put up a webpage as a writing sample (being careful not to infringe on anybody, I guess.)

    Man, it is going for a lot more than it was even a few years back.
    Yeah, that's it.

    The original writer had a great notion for exploring evolved human consciousness kind of like the GR TMP new human stuff, but it is hard to see that in the final.

    I really do hope Mrs. Pillar gets to publish that book officially. I'd really like to read it.

    An all Trek CINEFEX would be appreciated--with ship profiles. At least we know the issue will be longer than it is tall due to the standard format.

    Not a book, but over at Orion Press, I've posted synopses of several rejected storylines. See the first link in my sig, scroll down to "Outlines Which Never Became Episodes."

    I wonder what the legality would be of self-publishing a collection of these?

    I'm beginning to wonder if by the time we finish being steamrollered by these Ridley Scott PROMETHEUS movies that they will have trampled all over THE GOD THING and TITANS.

    Not sure of the legality, Harvey, but honestly, I've never entertained the notion. I'm not much of a critic, and really just post these for fun and for other fans.
