Trivia

Originally conceived as an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987), this story was set to introduce gay characters to the "Star Trek" universe for the first time, something Gene Roddenberry had insisted upon. However, after Roddenberry's death, the script was pulled from production, prompting David Gerrold to quit the series. Years later, with the production of this web series, the producers approached Gerrold about reviving the story. Gerrold agreed, and adapted the script to include the "New Voyages" characters, and even directed the two-part story himself. See more »

True Trek
5 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't think Gene would have approved having soooo much emphasis on gayness. The last time Gene wrote about gayety, the moral was "live within the rules of your society". Since that time "the rules" have changed regarding gayety in our society. I don't think he would have eliminated the characters, but he would have simply made them a non-issue, much like he did with Ohura. Gene believed in the American concept of everyone being equal regardless of anything, and wrote that concept into every episode in various ways.

Today, gayety is being shoved down our throats by all the forms of media. It's sad, but inevitable, that Star Trek had to become another promoter.

All us real trekkers know that Star Trek died with Gene, and are glad that his wife kept it on life support as long as she could... This series appears to be a zombie that needs to either gain a real Roddenberry life, or be re-buried
