Two years ago, J. Michael Straczynski and Bryce Zabel wrote a proposal for a re-vamp of the original Star Trek series. Paramount in their infinite wisdom and awesome decision making concerning the franchise, turned it down. I wonder if the success of another redone science fiction series known as Battlestar Galactica has made them realize how poor a choice this was.
I only hope that when it comes time for Star Trek: Online to come out that none of the people responsible for declining to take the Babylon 5 creator up on his offer are still involved in anything having to do with Star Trek. Because if they want the game to fail, I'm sure those guys would find a way to make that happen.
Here is a link to the proposal. It sounds like it could have been a great idea.
