Star Trek has been with us for over 50 years in one form or another. It started in 1964 with the filming of the pilot episode of the original series, and it has continued to the present day, through films and subsequent TV series, along with other mediums such as books and video games.
We’re principally interested in the core of the franchise here, the TV series and films, and we’re going to take a look at some 'what if...' possibilities of projects that almost happened but didn’t. If you’re reading this from an alternate universe or timeline, perhaps this is normal Star Trek to you? »

Kennedy in November 1963, so it was no accident that the setting for American Graffiti’s night of cruising, romancing and soul-searching was placed a little over a year before that cataclysmic event. The interesting thing about Graffiti was the aggressiveness with which that »

Generally considered at least the equal or maybe (!) the better of Don Siegel’s influential 1956 classic, Phil Kaufman’s 1978 update transposes Jack Finney’s paranoid original to a new age San Francisco setting. Some have pointed out that a story based on people becoming suspicious of their neighbors’ unusual behavior might be better set somewhere other than San Francisco, but it’s pretty widely accepted that this is the best of the remakes (1992, 1997).
