Star Trek is nearly as incomprehensible as space itself. As it is, there are such a large number of certainties, stories and bizarre goodies to explore. With Star Trek Beyond coming at us and 2016 being the 50th commemoration of the first show, we’re not going to quit discussing Star Trek for a long, long time. In this article, we’re about to tell you that some of what you think about Star Trek is really off base. Here are seven oft-rehashed Trek clichés debunked.
7. The Original Cast Did Not Get Rich When the Show Became Popular
You may think that the first cast of Star Trek began to make money after the show exploded in syndication in the mid-1970’s. However, they didn’t. In 1974, William Shatner was so broke that he needed to do advertisements for Promise Margarine. This is the sort of work he would have turned-down in the 1960’s.
In William Shatner’s diary Leonard: My Fifty-Year Friendship With a Remarkable Man he reveals that “We didn’t get paid residuals, it’s possible no show has been run more in syndication than the original series, but we didn’t receive a penny from that.” However, this condition did not apply to Leonard Nimoy. He clearly made more than other individuals from the first cast and negotiated more smartly.
6. To Save the Original Star Trek, Gene Roddenberry Did Not Fight the Studio To The End
If you know your Trek history, then you know that the first show was wiped out by NBC in 1969. As a result of poor ratings, NBC had to scratch off the show in the second season. However, it was halted by something particular and that was a letter-writing campaign sorted out by Star Trek fans. Edward Gross stated thatNBC had no real option except to renew for a third season because of the letter writing campaign.Although Star Trek was restored for a third season, the show’s maker, Gene Roddenberry really quit being a maker. Basically, despite the fact that Trek was on air for a third year, it was dead, and Roddenberry had surrendered. NBC] didn’t care for Roddenberry and he didn’t care for them is what Gross said. Eventually, they gave the show the Friday night slot at 10 pm to guarantee that people viewing would be so low that they could scratch off it. Furthermore, amid its last season, the show was being run by Fred Freiberger, who was an outsider and not Gene Roddenberry.
Luke Cage is going to hit the Netflix screens on the September 30th 2016. The show is a spin-off of Jessica Jones, shares the Marvel’s cinematic universe with other Netflix shows like the “Daredevil” and “Iron Fist”. The timeline of this series will be taking place sometime after the events of Jessica Jones where the character tries to figure about the purpose of his life and better use of his powers. The series will also focus on the origins of the Luke Cage with flashbacks. The environment is set in “Harlem” so get prepared to hear some groovy music paying an homage to the Harlem’s vivid culture. Luke Cage’s character is played by Mike Colter, and he has revealed some really interesting facts about the show below, have a read:- “He is reeling from the experience that happens in Jessica, and he’s trying to get himself back on track. His bar was blown up, and now, he has to start over again. He’s just got to figure out where he is now, and what he’s doing with his life because he wants to define himself as a man, define himself in society and try to deal with his own demons. Just like Jessica had to deal with her demons, he has to deal with his demons.” “There’s a social aspect involved with Luke Cage, there is a criminal element involved, and there is a procedural element involvement. We focus on a variety of different things. I think it will be a surprise. I don’t know if we’ll be taking things to the next level because Jessica did such a great job. I don’t know what to expect, as far as the response, but I know it’s going to be different.” “Luke has some songs that people know but I think also the whole feel of it will have, I guess this is an overused word, but urban. It will be urban, it will be soulful, and it will be a stark contrast to the music you heard for the first two prior series. We are in Harlem, so you want to feel like you are around that kind of culture, Harlem has a long, rich culture of music and we want to pay homage to that. “It’s very sophisticated. I mean, it’s got a ’90s hip-hop vibe, but it’s really forward-thinking. We have Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad doing the scoring for us. We have a lot of different musical appearances, but at the same time, we’ve got the Marvel action. We’ve got drama.” The show also packs some of the best actors from the TV industry, and we might even see some big cameos from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We’ve got some confirmation on the cast, have a check :-

2. Simone Missick As Misty Knight

The relationship amongst those characters is the thread that binds the audiences to the characters, and surprisingly the action and violence are just an output of this epic saga.

The audiences felt connected and invested in the characters because they have been written three-dimensionally, that resonates with the viewers. Let’s have a look at the top 10 couples of the Walking Dead universe, Do you agree with the number 1 couple on this list?

The dismal truth about Star Trek is that it had Gene Roddenberry, the original creator, stepping away for the series find its second wind. He will always be viewed as the genius who shepherded into existence finest sci-fi franchise ever. However, his later vision of what Star Trek was, clashed with different creatives and with a lot of what made the first TV series extraordinary. It’s no mishap that he was forced out of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. For the record, this ostensibly remains the best of the twelve movies made till date. Here’s what we have further….
1. Twelve Books To Be Thirteen Soon
Yes, it’s true. Those twelve movies will soon be thirteen. Therefore, it’s not accidental that the new book The Fifty-Year Mission: The Complete Uncensored, Unauthorized Oral History of Star Trek – The First 25 Years is in stores at this moment. What’s more, the second volume will land in August. This book is what is getting my attention. This is basically because it uncovers that Gene Roddenberry wrote a Star Trek film where Captain Kirk battles Jesus Christ.
2. A Must Read
According to The Hollywood Reporter, this book that is a must-read in case you’re a Star Trek fan or you simply appreciate extraordinary Hollywood stories.
