This original version was rewritten into an unfunny comedy by the line producer Gene Coon apparently unaware that Uncle Miltie was also a serious dramatic actor and a good one. It t was so bad that I complained to Roddenberry.
“This is so lousy, Gene, that you should kill it!” I told him. “You can’t, you shouldn’t, shoot this thing! Read it and weep!”
Gene did, and he agreed with me. I killed my second Star Trek, which, down through the years has cost me tens of thousands of dollars in lost residuals.
Rumor has it that the Phase II guys have gotten their hands on the script and are planning on filming it.
Bleeding Cool has squirrelled out news of an upcoming crossover that might send certain minds reeling. That in May, IDW are to publish a Doctor Who/Star Trek: The Next Generation crossover series. Featuring The Doctor, Rory, Amy, Captain Picard, Worf, Data, Geordie LaForge, Deanna Troy, Will Riker and the rest. And that this art, featuring the Doctor, Rory and Amy on the bridge of the Enterprise is a cover that will be used in the series.
What? Dr Who and Star Trek? What the hell is a bush leaguer like dr who doing with a Grade A series like Star Trek?

The Concert was in Landau, Germany. The Band is the Symphonic Wind Band of Landau (Community Band).
The crafting site Etsy often has interesting home-made Star Trek items, but this one is especially impressive. Barry Shields from Tennessee is offering a coffee table shaped like the USS Enterprise C (from Star Trek: TNG’s “Yesterday’s Enterprise), carved from ash, poplar and cherry wood.
No idea why he chose to do the Enterprise-C, she was only seen in a couple episodes of TNG, and was ultimately destroyed by the Romulans…
In the Star Trek universe created by Gene Roddenberry, there are a myriad of iconic images many people remember: Green Orion slave girls, the Borg, phasers, heroes, villains, and that big-headed alien that Clint Howard pretends to be that shows up at the end of the credits of the original series, and more. But take anyone off the street, and odds are they can identify at least one incarnation of the USS Enterprise. Starships have long been one of the easily recognizable parts of Star Trek lore; while Roddenbery’s vision of the future was for the most part peaceful, with brains far exceeding brawn, not all conflict could be resolved by hugging it out.
lots of videos, and I whole heartedly disagree with #1 (and it seems like the guy at TR has no idea WHY it’s so damn powerful), but this list actually reminded me that I missed a couple dozen ENTERPRISE episodes, one of which apparently took place in the Mirror Mirror verse, which reminds me, all the trek episodes are on Netflix… though none of the movies are, wtf.
Space… the final frontier … endless…silent…waiting. This si the story of the Unites Space Ship Enterprise…its mission…a five year patrol of the galaxy…to seek out and contact all alien life…to explore..to travel the vast galaxy where no man has gone before…a STAR TREK.
Hallmark has taken an iconic scene from the original Star Trek series and added it to their ever increasing lineup of nerdy Christmas ornaments. It also includes dialog from the show.
