Rebooting a Classic: Star Trek

This entry is part 1 of 13 in the series Starfleet Academy.

As I’ve said before, every now and then, an idea gets stuck in my head and starts rattling around. That’s part and parcel of being a writer, I know, but sometimes, those ideas are…well, kind of worthless, simply because I can’t do anything with them. They’re ideas that can best…

Starfleet Academy: The Premise

This entry is part 2 of 13 in the series Starfleet Academy.

Last week, I started a new series where I’m going to outline some ideas that I have for a new Star Trek TV show. This is all hypothetical, obviously. It’s a work of fanfiction for my own amusement… …although if there’s someone from Paramount that wants to make a show…

Starfleet Academy: Setting the Stage

This entry is part 3 of 13 in the series Starfleet Academy.

So two weeks ago, I wrote a blog post about how, if I could, I would reboot the Star Trek TV franchise with a show set at Starfleet Academy. This wouldn’t be a spin-off of J.J. Abrams’s movies. Instead, it would be a continuation of the other TV shows that…

Casting Starfleet Academy: The Outcast

This entry is part 5 of 13 in the series Starfleet Academy.

Last week, we met the first character for my hypothetical Starfleet Academy TV show, namely Cadet Kamlyn Sulu, the great grandson of Hikaru Sulu. He’s a straightlaced legacy type, so we need to find the antithesis to him, someone who could serve as a foil, someone who would maybe bring…

Casting Starfleet Academy: The Out-of-Time Prodigy

This entry is part 6 of 13 in the series Starfleet Academy.

Thus far in my little fanfiction project called “Starfleet Academy,” I’ve come up with the Legacy, namely Kamlyn Sulu. I’ve added in an Outcast, the Cardassian exile named Jessa Atin. Now it’s time to get back to basics. Every Star Trek show has had a fish-out-of-water type of character, an…

Casting Starfleet Academy: The Naive Natural

This entry is part 7 of 13 in the series Starfleet Academy.

For the past three weeks, I’ve been sketching out the main characters for my hypothetical Star Trek series to relaunch the franchise on TV, namely Starfleet Academy. As I said before, this is just for my own fun and to get these ideas out of my head. While this would…

The Settings of Starfleet Academy

This entry is part 9 of 13 in the series Starfleet Academy.

Over the past several weeks, I’ve put together the cast for my hypothetical Star Trek reboot, a show set at Starfleet Academy. We would follow the adventures of four cadets as they enter the Academy and start training for their careers in Starfleet. They would make friends and enemies and…

The Stories of Starfleet Academy Seasons 1 & 2

This entry is part 10 of 13 in the series Starfleet Academy.

So over the past several weeks, I’ve been stretching my fan-fiction legs a little and spinning out details for a hypothetical new Star Trek show. We’ve got about a half dozen characters, a couple of settings, and the general premise for my version of Starfleet Academy. But we all know…
