CBS Stops “New Voyages” from Producing Unused Star Trek Script

Star Trek: New Voyages

CBS has blocked plans for the popular fan-series, Star Trek New Voyages: Phase II from adapting Norman Spinrad’s unused Star Trek script, “He Walked Among Us, into an upcoming episode.

According to a New York Times report, CBS stopped the planned production and claimed rights to the script. “We fully appreciate and respect the passion and creativity of the ‘Star Trek’ fan and creative communities,” CBS said in a statement. “This is simply a case of protecting our copyrighted material and the situation has been amicably resolved.”

The report goes on to point out that New Voyages has already produced an unused David Gerrold script “Blood and Fire,” which was reworked as it was originally planned for an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation in 1987.

“I’m not going to do anything that might be questionable. I have such a good relationship with CBS that I can call them anytime and ask, ‘Is this a problem?’ ” said New Voyages senior executive producer and star, James Cawley.

    “I’m not going to do anything that might be questionable. I have such a good relationship with CBS that I can call them anytime and ask, ‘Is this a problem?’ ” said New Voyages senior executive producer and star, James Cawley.

    Having had some business dealings and artistic differences with James Cawley in the past, his above statement of not doing anything questionable is just a facade on his part.

    There is still the issue of the uniform incident and how he got a part in J.J. Abrams’s 2009 prequel reboot. Let alone other questionable acts that involved some shady business acts that hurt Starship Farragut some years past.
