Subj: Answers Date: 8/23/97 12:55:08 AM From: RonDMoore Some stuff I grabbed from the old folder, while I've got a little time: << let me say that it's possible that if we were to see lots of athletic males in Trek, we just might turn off a major demographic -- young males. Showing women is okay, by comparison, because -- or so say the pop articles on stuff like this -- girls like to "dish" (whatever that means). I'm just throwing out some ideas here.>> This has never been a factor in our casting or story decisions. Nor will it be. <<Just curious if you are a regular "live theater" goer. Have you had the opportunity to see the musical "Rent"?>> Ruby and I try to go when we can. We have tickets for "Rent" when it comes to LA later this year. My favorite play of the last few years was "Arcadia" by Tom Stoppard, and if you ever get a chance to see or read this fascinating and brilliant work -- run, don't walk. <<Do you know of any way to get a copy of the alternate script created for the Generations movie (the one by the other team)? Also, any idea of where I might find the 6TH SEASON "All Good Things...", the script that you wrote but never completed.>> As far as I know, you can't get a copy of Maurice Hurley's script (which I think had a different title than "Generations"). Also, the 6th season version of "All Good Things..." never got past the story stage, so there is no script. <<In the TNG Episode: "The Pegasus", a Federation developed "Phase(d) Cloak" is discovered. In a time of war, why hasn't the Federation decided to use these on all of its vessels (or as many as possible?)>> The phasing cloak had a lot technical problems in its development which cause explosions on both the Pegasus and a Romulan ship working on the same device. This would seem to indicate that the phasing cloak still has a lot of problems despite the Enterprise's desperate use of it at the end of "The Pegasus." <<What software do you use to write your scripts?>> I'm in the middle of switching from Microsoft Word 5.0 (with Scriptor style sheet) to Scriptware. Word 5 is a dinosaur that no one seems to be using anymore except here in the antiquated Hart Building (where the computers aren't even networked together yet). Scriptware has some kinks here and there, but it's a huge improvement over Word and I think we'll all be using it before too long. <<Recently I went onto the Bridge and I heard some guy spouting off about how they are bringing TNG back in 1998 and it is going to be about the Ent-E, and claiming that his uncle works at Paramount so the rumors he put on his web page were true.>> It's nonsense. <<On a more serious note, I was wondering if the writing staff was planning to deal with the fact that Ziyal grew up the station. Did she know Quark? Nog? Rom?>> Our feeling is that Ziyal was kept out of public view during the Cardassian Occupation as was her mother since it would've been politically incorrect for Dukat to have a Bajoran family at that time. --------
