The latest Star Trek
incarnation finally bit the stardust, I gather. UPN has yanked the plug on NCC-1701a, aka Enterprise
. Not a moment too soon, considering how retarded it was.
I hope Paramount lets the franchise lie fallow for a bit. They've now done every decent story involving a starship two or three times by now.
Or at least, make the next series about non-humans. The Wars of the Klingon Succession, anyone? I'd watch. Qapla'h!
I wonder if this will help Charlie Jade
? Personally I'm starved for SF. I had high hopes for Marti Noxon's Point Pleasant
, but it was ham-handed. If only the girl had been not only half devil but half angel. And aren't we all?
Alex, I can't be bothered registering.
Keep watching Point Pleasant.
It's weird that they took three episodes to get to it, but last week there was the definite sense (IE: she confronts the Grant Show character) that the protagonist can actively resist her destiny. We were told by no less than two other people that there was goodness in her. by the end of last ep, this show I think hinted at what it always needed to be to succeed: It's Buffy in reverse. She's destined to destroy the world, but can choose to save it if she's strong enough.
I just linked to you from Screenplay Europe, following Caroline Martin's suggestion.
All the best,
