Star Trek never succeeds without a fight...
The final fronteir…..
Some of you are far too young, and others may not be hard core trekkies, but…
There once was a guy who got his feet wet in hollywood doing black and white westerns. He wanted to pitch something with a lot of familiar plot lines, but went where “ no man has gone before”.
As irony would have it, the first pilot was a flop and sent back for a remake, the second version was also not welcomed with open arms. Finally with the third try he sold his show and Star Trek was born…only to get cancelled after a few seasons. Only then did Trek find its spot, growing like wildfire into the huge licence it commands today.
Just like then, Star Trek is kicking and groaning its way to us here by a new company trying to sell something not entirely new, but with something different to offer, see the pattern?
I am a trekkie and I support it in all of its forms, even tho it has flopped in some of its past history, Trek usually will come thru, and I am hopeing this is the case here. I for one am glad to see this new generation of media embrace Trek, and with some support from the fanbase, I just cant see this game failing.
