Eeee! It's Assignment: Earth! Apparently they were going to turn this into its own series, and that's why there's so much detail on Gary Seven, but the studio turned it down. Which is a pity, because this is the period in Earth History in the Trekverse about which we know the least. If they'd made Assignment: Earth into a series, it would have filled that massive gap quite nicely - and it would likely have gone all the way up to First Contact with it, too. Sigh.

Stupid Enterprise. Stupid overly-emotional Vulcans. >.<

EDIT: And now I'm thinking about how cool it would be if they now finally carried through with making Assignment: Earth into a proper series. A miniseries would be sufficient, I think. It would be extremely cool. Or bringing Gary Seven into the next movie, if only in passing. Or something. I mean, I guess they couldn't use Robert Lansing and Terri Garr, but they could manage. Although I have an unpleasant suspicion that they would make Isis with CGI (and now I have a horrible image in my head of them reproducing Isis like Salem *shudder*), it would still be cool. As cool as (or cooler than) if they made Federation News Service or Star Fleet Academy or something.

Have now overwhelming urge to write Assignment: Earth fic. Damnit. Mustn't. Have paper. Grr. What is this addiction I have to filling massive continuity gaps never touched by canon for the express purpose of amusing myself? I mean, gods... Cold Comforts and O, Brave New World weren't bad enough? Oh. Also Twilight Arc, though I'm not entirely to blame for that last one. ;) Must exercise self-control. Definitely must. *restrains self*

*whimpers* Somebody stop me!

I admit to really, really wanting Starfleet Diplomatic Corp. The guys who come in after Picard to normalize trade relations and establish embassies and stuff. West Wing in Space! (I maintain that West Wing is Star Trek in sheep's clothing.)

Yeah... the main reason DS9 was always my favourite of all the Treks was because of all the politics and the social info we got on the Federation, and the rest of the Trekverse. But producers always stick close to starships with lots of armaments, so that if the storyline gets a bit too thick for the non-fans they can always distract people with an explosion or two. o.O

Sometimes blowing things up can be fun!
