Did You Know?


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 »

Boldly going where this fan doesn't give a damn
28 March 2018 | by mikexxSee all my reviews

After a passably entertaining preceding episode, "World Enough and Time", featuring fan-favorite (and famously gay) George Takei dressed like Mongol barbarian, the two-parter "Blood and Fire" flogs flaccid all the reasons why this early example of an "SJW" smuggled-narratives script was prudently rejected during the ST:TNG run when it was offered then.

This is "Star Trek". It's a science-fiction show with spaceships and laser-battles, not "Days of Our Lives"-meets-"The Crying Game". --If you don't know that, you're making stuff for the wrong audience. (The episode goes into "creature feature" mode about five before the end, and really: you could skip straight to that point...or just watch the "recap" preceding Part Two, and not miss one thing.)
