Briefly Postponing Stellar Excellence

New Discovery Launch Date -- May 2017


Star Trek: Discovery will now launch in May, 2017, it was announced this afternoon by CBS All Access. The new premiere date is driven by the creative team's belief that this will give the show the appropriate time for delivery of the highest-quality, premium edition of the first new Star Trek television series in more than a decade.

“Bringing Star Trek back to television carries a responsibility and mission: to connect fans and newcomers alike to the series that has fed our imaginations since childhood,” executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Bryan Fuller said in a joint statement. “We aim to dream big and deliver, and that means making sure the demands of physical and post-production for a show that takes place entirely in space, and the need to meet an air date, don’t result in compromised quality. Before heading into production, we evaluated these realities with our partners at CBS and they agreed: Star Trek deserves the very best, and these extra few months will help us achieve a vision we can all be proud of.”

Star Trek: Discovery is coming to CBS All Access in May, 2017, following the premiere on the CBS Television Network, and will be distributed concurrently on Netflix in 188 countries and through Bell Media in Canada.

In a media conference today, CBS prez Less Moonves spake on the scheduling change for the upcoming Trek spin-off series:

       We’ve delayed our ‘Star Trek’ till May. For those who think that’s something to be worried about, let me assure you: it’s not.

       The producers came into my office last week and begged me – they said, “We are creating an entire universe; you know how fanatical ‘Star Trek’ fans are. We’re creating this universe, we need a couple more months to get the effects right, to get the world right. PLEASE let us have until May.”

       With ‘Star Trek,’ which is the bulging family jewels, I’d rather it be a few months late – and great – than than early, and not great. Because we will suffer for it.  Oh, Jesus Christ, we will.

       So we made the decision to give them the time to make their perfect ‘Star Trek,’ which we are wildly anticipating. In addition, we have the ‘Good Wife’ spin-off, which was going to be ready earlier, so basically we just flipped their position on our calendar.

USA Today gave us an exclusive 'Beyond' publicity still in spring, and now they have scooped the very first 'Beyond' deleted scene.  Jim Krik is having one of those days.

Pine's line on George report

   HUFFPOO: Kirk’s dad, George Kirk (Chris Hemsworth), is reportedly coming back in the next "War Trek" movie. What are your thoughts on running into your dad and how do you think that interaction will be?

   PINE: It’s a "trip" that, in the first one, Chris [Hemsworth] had such a small but important part and he "knocked it out of the park." He’s only on screen so briefly and he’s emotionally the centerpiece of that film.

   I’ve only seen him a couple times since then strangely, so it would be fun to reunite with him. I was honestly quite happy where the end of that father-son storyline ended, but I’d be happy to work with Chris again. He’s a great actor and a really nice man.

Pine on Kirk and beyond

“I like that he can be a buffoon. He’s one of those guys that thinks they know it all, is kinda badass and then he lets it slip. It’s why I always thought Harrison Ford was so great – he’s such a badass but doesn’t mind being made a fool of. Kirk is very fallible. He has no superpowers. He can be a dick and a really nice guy.”


“When we hit the tonal marks it’s not the super broad Marvel comedy with its very self-referential post-meta comedy! Star Trek is ’80s pop fun. You go in. Bad stuff happens. You may cry. Then you’ll laugh a bunch and – hurrah! – you’ll leave with a smile on your face. Simon knows that and he protected that. I was worried we’d lose the fun of it because everything nowadays is either getting so dark or so fucking bananas, off-the-wall, post-meta funny. I just wanted to do straight-up our thing and that’s there because Simon’s a fan.”

DID SPOCK OR RAFAEL CRUZ KILL JFK?!
Günter Grass, MD

After the success of Star Trek: The Motion Picture at the box office, Gene Roddenberry immediately got to work on a sequel. Little did he know that Paramount was in the process of sidelining him into a consulting producer role and his story for Star Trek II would never be made. However, we have details of his concept and it just may surprise you. Kirk meets JFK? Spock is the man on the grassy knoll?

Gene Roddenberry put together a sixty-page treatment for a sequel to Star Trek: The Motion Picture in the Spring of 1980, according to The 50 Year Mission by Edward Gross and Mark A. Altman. Despite TMP making $139 million worldwide, with $82.2 of its gross being made domestically, Roddenberry was stung by criticism of his first outing on the silver screen.

Roddenberry’s Idea for Star Trek II

Roddenberry decided to write a sequel that got back to the elements that had made Star Trek so popular: the Klingons, time travel, the Guardian of Forever, and Sarek and Amanda. In the story, the Enterprise returns to Earth to find bodies floating in space. They eventually discover that history has been changed by the Klingons and the Federation no longer exists. As to why the Enterprise still exists when the Federation does not, well the answer is that anyone traveling at warp speed when the change in the timeline occurred is immune.

With the Federation never having existed, Earth is populated with a savage race of protohumans. The crew learns that the Klingons used the Guardian of Forever to go back in time and change history. When more Klingons arrive at Earth, the Enterprise hides behind the moon to evade detection.

In San Francisco near the site of what would have been Starfleet Headquarters, Amanda is brutally raped by the Klingons and Sarek sacrifices his life to save Kirk and Spock. The crew returns to the planet where the Guardian is located to go back in time and reverse the damage that the Klingons had done.

When a Klingon ship attempts to block a much larger Guardian portal, the Enterprise crashes through the Guardian and ends up crashing in Canada in the 1960s. A U-2 spy plane mistakes the crashed Enterprise for an alien spacecraft, which causes U.S. President John F. Kennedy to cancel his trip to Dallas in November 1963. This prevents JFK from being assassinated, thus altering the timeline.

Realizing that they were the ones who altered the timeline, Captain Kirk visits JFK in the Oval Office. However, Kirk is not forced to ask the President to sacrifice himself to correct the timeline. Instead, the crew repair the timeline (mysteriously) that the Klingons disrupted and return to the 23rd century. To their surprise, Dr. McCoy returns to a wife due to the changes the Enterprise crew had made in the past.

Further Revisions!

Eddie Egan, the unit publicist on Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, stated that there was a revision that made the events of Roddenberry’s Star Trek II similar to the classic Original Series episode “The City on the Edge of Forever.” In order for history to be restored, Kennedy had to die. In this version, Spock appeared behind a fence and fired the fatal gunshot that assassinated JFK. This proposal reportedly horrified Paramount.

Fans even began a letter-writing campaign based on rumors that Spock would be the shooter on the grassy knoll. These angry letters basically said “if Spock is the shooter on he grassy knoll, I will never watch again.”

Roddenberry was “promoted” by Paramount in the early 1980s to the role of Executive Consultant, essentially cutting him out of creative input in the Star Trek film franchise.

Just eight months after he was announced as showrunner on the new Star Trek TV series, Bryan Fuller departed the project.

He's now dedicating all his attention to a new enterprise - so to speak - putting the finishing touches to an adaptation of Neil Gaiman's beloved fantasy novel American Gods.

Speaking exclusively to The Joffrey Factor, Fuller said that his busy schedule played into his exit from Star Trek: Discovery - and insisted that he is satisfied with how things worked out.

"With Star Trek, ultimately it was about not being able to do what CBS needed to be done in the time that they needed it done," he said.

"Part of that was [down to] my responsibilities to American Gods, which I'm very dedicated to, and so it was unfortunate to take a step back away from that show... and mainly because of the opportunity that I believe that Star Trek provides - for a conversation about progress, for humanity and the planet, and being able to tap into that."

He concluded: "I will miss doing Star Trek, but this is the best path."

Fuller further suggested that while Star Trek is "a religion-free show", the themes of faith and immigration in American Gods will make it "resonant and present" in 2016.

"Religion on the planet has kind of gone extinct in a way [in Star Trek] and right now religion is feeding a lot of issues in many different ways," he said. "As an artist, I want to represent the times in which we are telling a story and I feel like I have that opportunity with American Gods."

Fuller recently confirmed that he's "not involved in production, or [the] post-production" of Star Trek: Discovery - which has announced Doug Jones (Hellboy), Anthony Rapp (Dazed and Confused) and Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragoons) as its first cast members.





Editor's note: Fuller might be exaggerating that "religion is extinct" in 23rd and 24th century Earth.  There's that one episode in which Nyota Uhura kindof talks like she is a Christian, and also Commander Chakotay adheres to beliefs of Native American hufflepuff, for examples. (tho the more or less prohibition on Earth religions in Star Trek came from Roddenberry, owing to his bad experiences with The Baptist Faith as a youngster. But he has been dead for a while.)

And lots of writers have commented on contemporary religious issues by way of e.t. religions like such as the Klingons or Bajorans.  

So a quesh here is - is Fuller taking at shot at CBS Les Moonves because prehaps Fuller felt hemmed in by the brass or whatnot?  Sound off in the comments section below or tweet me @KingNegan

Yes I have heard that American Gods has been a hot property in Hollywoodland. I confess I have not read it. Just who are these American Gods?

The central premise is that gods and mythological creatures exist because people believe in them (a form of thoughtform). Immigrants to the United States brought with them spirits and gods. The power of these mythological beings has diminished as people's beliefs wane. New gods have arisen, reflecting America's obsessions with media, celebrity, technology, and drugs, among other things.

Don't be like that, why, did you know that the Gaimans moved in 1965 to the West Sussex town of East Grinstead where his parents studied Dianetics at the Scientology centre in the town ... one of Gaiman's sisters works for the Church of Scientology in Los Angeles. His other sister, Lizzy Calcioli, has said, "Most of our social activities were involved with Scientology or our Jewish family. It would get very confusing when people would ask my religion as a kid. I’d say, 'I’m a Jewish Scientologist.'" Gaiman says that he is not a Scientologist, and that like Judaism, Scientology is his family's religion. About his personal views, Gaiman has stated, "I think we can say that God exists in the DC Universe. I would not stand up and beat the drum for the existence of God in this universe. I don't know, I think there's probably a 50/50 chance. It doesn't really matter to me."

GARGANTUAN STD NEWS



Sonequa Martin-Green, well known to genre fans for her role on AMC’s mega-hit The Walking Dead, has been cast as the lead of Star Trek: Discovery, sources tell me.

The casting ends meticulous search to find the ideal actress to anchor the eagerly anticipated new CBS All Access drama. Martin-Green will play a lieutenant commander on the Discovery.

Unlike the previous series in the franchise, the main protagonist of Discovery won’t be a captain. Bryan Fuller described Martin-Green’s character as a “lieutenant commander with caveats.”

“We’ve seen six series from the captain’s point of view,” he explained. “To see a character from a new perspective on the starship — one who has different dynamic relationships with a captain, with subordinates, it gave us richer context.”

The casting of Martin-Green fills the most crucial role in the series, which CBS will premiere in May on its All Access streaming service. Discovery has made a flurry of other castings in recent few weeks too. Michelle Yeoh will play Captain Georgiou, the Starfleet Captain aboard the Starship Shenzhou; Doug Jones (Hellboy, Falling Skies) will play Lt. Saru, a Starfleet Science Officer and a new alien species; and Anthony Rapp (The Rentboy Musical) was cast as Lt. Stamets, an “astromycologist,” fungus expert.
