    Neat graphic! But I think I spotted a mistake. Wasn’t “The Lieutenant” a Marine Corps drama instead of a police drama?

    By the way, I just discovered this site. Keep up the great work!

      I’m pretty sure it was a cop show.  Roddenberry himself was a cop.

        Yes, GR was a cop at one time, but “The Lieutenant” was definitely about the Marines.
        From Wikipedia:

        “Situated at Camp Pendleton, the West Coast base of the U.S. Marine Corps, it focused on the men of the Corps in peace time with a Cold War backdrop. The title character was Second Lieutenant William Tiberius Rice, a rifle platoon leader and one of the training instructors stationed at Camp Pendleton. An hour-long drama, The Lieutenant explored the lives of Marine recruits and general officers alike.”

    Yeah I am enjoying this site too! Trekmovie has been incognito the last couple of weeks, so it’s good to know that there isn’t just ONE source of Star Trek news.

    Has anyone heard anything from the “Supreme Court” as to the status of the script and/or production of the next film? With the long silence of any updates, I have a bad feeling the next film isn’t going to be made…I hope I’m wrong about that…

      I’m sure it will come out. When millions of dollars are on the line, these things take planning and proper execution. Let’s just be patient.
