We seem to. I might even have contributed to it a time or two.
Sorry, I might've gone a little overboard.
I miss this show.
Ha. You're fine. I got a warning from your associates for suggesting a... legally dubious solution to the problem of Prodigy.
Not sorry, either.
Something like that may well have been the plan. Maybe we will still see some of it.
Apparently, season 2 episodes are having their finishing touches added, with some lucky people having even seen one or two episodes. One episode is ‘exploring the aftermath of one of the most fascinating rivalries in Star Trek history’… Exciting! I wonder what this is referring to?
Intriguing. A rivalry between nations, groups, or individuals? I got no clue.
Could be Quark and Odo?
We should find out at some point.
I think there are enough Trek fans out there that someone will take a chance on S2, especially since they don't have to pay to have it produced, or wait for it to be finished. Maybe someone will buy it just to stop those banner-towing airplanes from buzzing around their heads.
X formerly known as Twitter should buy it, then they can have Prodigy as exclusive streaming content for blue tick subscribers. It would be a bit like that one time UPN bought Star Trek: Voyager to launch their new network.
This is the only way that I would ever pay for blue tick premium membership.
Alex Kurtzman can tweet out a new episode each week?
Good Gods no! X needs to just die already. I only use it for Trek news like this.
The reason why I can't take save Prodigy seriously is jokes like this. Where is the concerted email writing campaign? There is always this insistence that fans saved Star Trek yet when it comes to Prodigy, supposedly a favorite amongst fans, the most we get is a random date and the suggestion for Twitter to purchase the show?
Who do we direct said Emails to?
To Netflix for starters. To Viacom/CBS/Paramount to show that there is interest in the project and would be worth their money to keep it going.
Possibly to any Trek and scifi related news sites to run the save Prodigy campaign and get them in on it. Create some noise!
A "fascinating" rivalry? Has to be Spock and McCoy, doesn't it?
I wasn't saying Boo-urns.
Fortunately with X's cash flow problems, I doubt they're in the market for purchasing any broadcast rights.
Star Trek is probably too progressive for Musk anyway.
Netflix has a page (link depends on country) to suggest new shows to pick up, if enough people suggest Prodigy that may help.
Though honestly, there must have been contacts and negotiations already and the blu-rays and digital downloads selling well is probably more important. As a symbol, the airbanner may have been more eyecatching.
Let's hope it will all be enough.
The point is to show interest. If people assume it must have already happened nothing will get done.
Few things show interest like Blu-Ray sets flying off shelves, which is pretty much happening now.
Good to know.
We went on the streaming platforms we’re subscribed to and suggested they purchase Prodigy. It’s not much, certainly not as targeted as when my mom sent her postcard, but I’m trying, promise!
At this point, I'd probably be just as happy if they released season 2 directly to home media. Since I don't know anything about entertainment industry finances, though, I don't know if this would get them enough revenue to make money on the season or not.
Obviously a streaming license and a home media release would give them maximum revenue, but I'd be curious, if they only did one, which one would make them the most?
But I'd much rather have it only released to disc, rather than have it streaming on a service that insisted on exclusivity, such that no home media release could ever be done. Plus it would probably be cheaper overall for me that way, since I'd only have to buy the set, and not have to pay for a subscription service that I'm not already signed up for.
Unfortunately, going that way would probably mean zero chance of a season 3. Granted season 3 probably isn't likely either way, but if it's on a service, that very slim chance is at least probably non-zero.
