I don’t know how to make the boxes that quote others so I’ll have to do it this way!

At the top right corner of the post you wish to quote, there is a button marked 'Quote'. left click that and the effect is the same as the 'Post Reply' button but with that post quoted.
You then continue with what you wish to say after that. hello2 thumbright

Don't, for goodness sake, let Jonathan Frakes get his hands on it!!!

LOL. Actually, he'd be one of the directors I would have in mind (probably not a regular cast member, though). There's a few Trek people I could see being involved. For instance, I could see Avery Brooks playing Commander Koenig (Martin Landau in the original) but the character is probably too similar to Benjamin Sisko, his Trek character. I have not watched much current Trek (Discovery, Picard) so maybe there's some people there I could use.

That said, I'd be overhauling the dramatis personae quite a bit, I suspect. I don't want to be straitjacketed by the past. There's no need for a character to be male or female in my version (or a given race) just because they were in the original.

Did you see what Frakes did to Thunderbirds? It was bordering on criminal. The Ford sponsorship was so obvious it was like a ninety minute advert for Ford cars.
FAB1 was based on a Ford Thunderbird, an ATV had the biggest Ford badge I have ever seen and the so-called News report had Police vehicles arranged so that their Ford badges were clearly visible and featured one of just about every model in the Ford UK range on display. Even on the TV screen, the headline actually includes the words, 'Sponsored by Ford'.
You really need to see the film to appreciate what a bad choice Frakes would be for any Gerry Anderson project!

One that's been talked about many times among s-f fans is Gerry Anderson's live action (vs. his usual puppets) Space 1999. Updating the show (Space 2049 or something) and fixing the premise (the moon blasted out of orbit by a nuclear explosion and somehow skipping through space fast enough to visit multiple systems, but slowly enough for adventures to happen in those systems) could result in a fairly good modern s-f show. I was thinking of having the explosion push the moon through a wormhole to another system, then have all the action happen in that system before they hit another wormhole. Basically visit a new system each season and do maybe 8 or 10 episode seasons.

Don't, for goodness sake, let Jonathan Frakes get his hands on it!!!

Topic That one song...
Posted 17 May 2020 14:05

Just before last Christmas I heard this on the radio. It made me prick up my ears and immediately transported me back to my childhood many moons ago. Although a new song from Robbie Williams, it incorporates the music from the 60's TV show 'Robinson Crusoe'. That music like no other, has the power to transport me immediately to those carefree days.
