The new fan film guidelines by the current copyright holders of Star Trek are, frankly, stupid. Neither CBS nor Paramount were the creators of this series. Gene Roddenberry and Desilu were.
What does that mean?
It means that they lack the passion and the sense of risk-taking which built Star Trek, and sustained it throughout its first decade–the most critical of its existence.
They do not care about the very people who sustained this dead TV series and took inspiration from it, and created heartfelt tributes to it.
They should be ashamed.
I do not intend to see the new movie the current copyright holders are releasing next month.
