The new Star Trek original series opening is abominable. Over a year ago, I was asked permission to make a new graphic file; and background noises to add to the original Star Trek. He felt I made a mistake by leaving them out; and the new graphic would be a superior opening. He asked for my permission and I declined saying make something up so I can see it, but I didn’t want to okay something I know nothing about and felt unnecessary. It is unfair to fans to change the original.
He replied he was going to make a cartoon and sell it as a graphic and make enough money to retire on. He felt the background noises would make him happy and the happiness of one Mooc is always their top priority. So, he said he would tell the buyer I okayed the new opening.
I said, “You’d be lying.”
He said, “It wouldn’t be the first time.”
The new opening was prepaid, it must have been, because the supposed “graphic” looks like a cartoon drawn by the artists who draw the Simpsons or the Family Guy. The Enterprise in the cartoon, gained weight and has gained the ability to bend. It is disgraceful and despicable. The new opening makes me nauseous.
As for ambient noises and background chatter, those were purposefully left out. Gene Rodenberry and other scientists and I decided the Bridge is a self-sustaining craft and could be separated from the main ship in an emergency and continue alone with the top officers; and therefore, the door was always closed and hallway noises could not be heard due to the Bridge’s separate atmospheric system from the rest of the ship. Also, if you were a fan you would know there was no non-essential chatter allowed on the Bridge. Every time you see people in conversation, other than conversations involving the condition of the ship or crew, you should have realized they are in a room in the main part of the ship. They are Never on the Bridge. That is why you don’t hear any background conversations on the Bridge – there were none – they were not allowed.
So, it shouldn’t matter that you want to hear the noises that were never supposed to be there. Putting noises where none ever were and should not be, throws the symmetry of Star Trek way off kilter. I hate it. I have to be true to the fans. You should take your stupid, selfish way of making money, and come up with something legitimate, and don’t bastardize my work. You always have to consider the happiness of others to make yourself happy.
Find yourself a worm hole and throw yourself into it – you worm.
PS: The Star Trek “Discovery” opening is great.
