I had a concept for a fan film project before the new guidelines. When they dropped, the entire idea went on the back burner. With winter coming and more free time (since I do a lot of seasonal work during the summer), I am starting to think about it again. The story I want to do, over several episodes, no longer works within the Trek universe because of the guidelines. I've been working on ideas to rebrand it into it's own thing, but some things have me wondering. How much needs to be changed to really rebrand it? Could I still have warp speed, or should I use something else or just call it something different? Can transporters still be called transporters, or should I rename them or use a different concept. How about phasers? I'm sure you can see where I'm going with this. It basically comes down to how much can I use without changing the concept of what it is,what it does, and/or the name of it and still have the project be considered it's own thing instead of Star Trek? Hope that makes sense. Interested to hear thoughts about this.
