Okay, so I didn't mean to have a headline that was so vague and broad, but the gist of what I am aiming for is how to do research what decisions are made in making science fictions media... I'll give you some examples. In Star Trek, a lot of people thought that Paramount dropped the ball. Rick Berman and Brandon Braga were the most responsible. I saw a thread where Christopher Bennett said something about Brandon Braga not being completely responsible for Trek's demise.... ... What do I know? I do know that they were on the credits for doing at least the least sucessful Voyager and Enterprise shows. Also, we had all but First Contact came as what fans at a broad glance reviewed more positively. For Star Wars, George Lucas got a lot of criticism. Most of it, I didn't agree with, but some things I did. I know that he had more control of the prequel movie trilogy from the credits. Compared to "A New Hope," he had more control of that movie (at least George was directing it) than in the sequels within the original trilogy. How do I do more homework? It looks like I have to search for interviews and articles on who said what and what happen as a final decision. Of course, there are videos and special features of the movies and shows made, but I am very limited on time... I barely have enough time for my other hobbies, because I am a full time student in college... So my two base questions are... where are quick ways to find information out and are there other mediums I can get information... maybe more straightforward? People here seem pretty smart and knowledgeable abou what goes behind the scenes. Can someone enlighten me?
