Lol. I was in the military and remember that Jedi was an option for religious preference.

I would be terrified if he came back from the dead. Because then I would seriously worry about the zombie apocalypse being on us, not about what show he might make.

That said, it would be a funny scene to have undead-Roddenberry go to Paramount and CBS to eat the brains of all the executives, then go to a set on the lot somewhere and start making a new ST show.

Impossible. CBS network executives don't have any brains! They proved it when they cancelled Star Trek the first time!

So the people who control the films cannot make a TV series? That seems like an odd restriction.

As to me being the only one with nerd rage. I've have more than few posts from you which make any rage I may have seem like a zephyr in a hurricane. I sometimes think you come here looking for things to rage about because you're not sure we take you seriously enough. Don't worry. We don't.

Um, that was NBC in the sixties. CBS bought the rights not too terribly long ago.

Zombie Gene would starve to death at NBC, yes...

I wanted to link a clip from the earlier seasons of Saturday Night Live, "The Last Voyage of the Starship Enterprise", but unfortunately the only one I could find was "not available in your country".

There was a hilarious bit where Mr. Spock (Dan Ackroyd) tried mind-melding with the NBC executive that had walked into the Bridge to announce their cancellation. "It was dark in there, and there were cobwebs.. I kept hitting my head on the ceiling..."

And Capt. Kirk (John Belushi) filing his final Captain's Log: "We have traveled the galaxy, and found intelligent life everywhere. Except one television network."

Well if thats true is great news. I always loved the shows produced by netflix. They are nicely done. They are really nice and not garbaje like almost 80% of the show content in USA.
