Iâ€™m going to be honest here. I liked â€œEnterpriseâ€. I enjoyed Captain Archer. Really enjoyed Vulan sexpot Tâ€™Pol. Never had a problem with Porthos the dog. And yep, didnâ€™t even mind the opening theme. Goes without saying that Iâ€™m not a Trekkie â€“ since most Trekkies, Trekkers and, er, whatever the ones that wear the uniforms to sleep call themselves â€“ hated the show, but Iâ€™ve always thought Iâ€™ve had OK taste.
And I donâ€™t really know why I felt the need to admit my enjoyment of â€œEnterpriseâ€.. Maybe because nobody else ever will. So there! Itâ€™s out there! Itâ€™s done! Whip me with Romulan fetter throng!
But I digress, word this weekend is that writer Bryan Fuller (â€œDead Like Meâ€, â€œPushing Daisiesâ€) wants to cash in on the impending success of the new â€œStar Trekâ€ film (as you would), by creating a new small-screen â€œTrekâ€ series.
“I told my agent and told the people of J.J. Abrams’ team I want to create another ‘Star Trek’ series and have an idea that Iâ€™m kicking around,” Fuller said in an IF Magazine. “I would love to return to the spirit of the old series with the colors and attitude. I loved ‘Voyager’ and ‘Deep Space Nine,’ but they seem to have lost the â€˜60s fun and I would love to take it back to its origin.”
Aint it Cool managed to contact Fuller, who wrote for â€œDeep Space Nineâ€ and â€œVoyagerâ€ before hitting the big time with quirky series like â€œWonderfallsâ€, and asked a couple of questions. Firstly, when and where would his new series be set?
â€œI would love to do it in the same era as the J.J. Abrams movie, but on another starship on a completely different adventure,â€ Fuller tells Ainâ€™t It Cool. â€œBut it really is a dream and there is nothing official about it at all.â€
Meantime, and talking of Sci-Fi, how cool was the finale episode of â€œBattlestar Galacticaâ€ episode guys!? Couldnâ€™t ended any better in my opinion. Just fuckinâ€™ grand! Well done Ron Moore. Any new â€œStar Trekâ€ series has its work cut out for it, after the magnificent â€œBSGâ€, as I see it.
