Proposed New ‘Star Trek’ Would Return Series to Its ‘Roots’

Aug 25th, 2011

A new “Star Trek” series that would “return [the iconic sci-fi brand] to its
original series roots” is in the early stages of development, one of the “Star
Trek” Web sites — is reporting.

Producer David Foster –tells the site that he’s been working on a new “Star
series for several years, but has not made an official pitch to any

In the interview with TrekWeb, the producer revealed a deep knowledge of all
the “Star Trek” spinoff series and movies. And while he’s a fan of all of them,
he wants his new version to reflect creator “Gene Roddenberry’s positive view of
the future.”

That means cheap sets, saccharine scripts and a cast of terrible Jewish actors.

Unless…he intends to combine “Roots” with “StarTrek”.  ( I am surprised that Levar Burton didn’t think of this.)  So the Enterprise would become a slave ship, travelling the universe to kidnap and trade various lifeforms.  Imagine the intergalactic demand for Klingon lawn services.


Found at Gadhafi compound: Condoleezza Rice photos

TRIPOLI, Libya — Libyan rebels who took control of Moammar Gadhafi’s sprawling compound made a surprising discovery
in one of the buildings: a photo album with pictures of Condoleezza Rice.

Though maybe the discovery isn’t that surprising. Over the years, the Libyan leader’s comments and actions related to the former secretary of state have raised a few eyebrows.

Consider how he talked about her in an interview with Al-Jazeera television in 2007, where he hinted that then-President George W. Bush’s top diplomat wielded considerable influence in the Arab world.

“I support my darling black African woman,” he said. “I admire and am very proud of the way she leans back and gives orders to the Arab leaders. …
Leezza, Leezza, Leezza. … I love her very much. I admire her, and I’m proud of her, because she’s a black woman of African origin.”

And here is Monamour Gadhafi to sing:
