Disney Buys Star Trek

Tue Mar 31, 2015, 3:00 PM

DeviantArt Today’s Page News Desk


“Gary Seven” (Reporter Without Portfolio)

I just received a call from “Gary Seven.”

DeviantArt has many surprisingly well-connected members and one of them, a top Paramount executive, contacted us two days ago with a rumor so powerful that we wanted to be 100% certain before publishing it. We now know: Disney just bought all television rights to Star Trek.

Bob Iger, the current chairman and CEO of Disney, bought Star Trek from CBS Television, which had acquired the television rights when it split off from Paramount. Paramount has kept the motion picture rights.

Our contact, who wants to be known as “Gary Seven,” found out about this purchase — needless to say one of the biggest secrets imaginable — when Iger visited Paramount two days ago to let them know what Disney planned to do with their new franchise. Because Paramount is still making Star Trek movies, we guess there must be some sort of clause in the contracts that requires some kind of cooperation between television and motion picture versions.

Gary is on the Paramount Star Trek motion picture team and their heads started spinning when Iger laid out his plans.

What we know from that meeting is this:

  • Disney is rebooting the television series Star Trek as a fast track project. JJ Abrams had been in talks with Disney before it closed on Star Trek. Iger asked Abrams to secretly set the reboot of Star Trek in the Star Wars universe and in return he would be rewarded by directing the first of the Star Wars movies.
  • Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens, now being edited for December release, will plant suggestions that the Federation, Klingons and Romulans were connected to the Star Wars universe. They are dubbing references along those lines into the dialogue now. (Tribbles?) This will set up additional storylines in the television reboot of Star Trek. But Iger assured the meeting that the Star Trek characters would not actually appear in the Star Wars films unless Paramount agreed.
  • Disney will blend Star Trek into their Marvel Universe by placing Marvel characters like Iron Man and a future version of The Guardians of the Galaxy into worlds visited by the Starship Enterprise and its crew in the reboot. Disney also wants a unified backstory that Stark Industries designed the Starship Enterprise and is the go-to contractor for Starships to the Federation. Iger said he would consider licensing the same characters to Paramount for its Star Trek films if the scripts are made compatible.
  • The Disney Channel will be producing an entire series in which the Star Trek characters and more importantly the moral lessons and “humanistic” messages of the franchise will be directed at pre-school and K-6 children. Iger said this was a “passion project” for him because he has learned so much to guide his own life from Star Trek.
  • Disney’s Imagineering division has started plans for the Starship Enterprise Holodeck attraction for all its theme parks as part of TomorrowLand and will easter egg the attraction in the TomorrowLand film coming this summer.
  • Iger showed mock ups of Star Trek merchandise that will start selling at all Disney outlets this summer. In a dramatic gesture he ended his talk by opening up his shirt to display a T-shirt that read “Disney’s Star Trek Coming Soon!”

We are told by Gary that the response was icy while Iger and his team were making their presentation.

As soon as they left the room on the Paramount lot in Hollywood, Brad Grey, the Chairman of Paramount, turned to his executives and said: “Don’t worry. We’ve sued Disney before and we will do it again. They will not f**kup Star Trek like they did with so many other cherished properties. Not on my watch.”

We learned from another source that Paramount’s law firm took over a whole floor in its Century City offices as a “war room” and is pulling in copyright lawyers from all over the country (we guess that includes the one who works here at HQ because he’s been gone for three days and used to be General Counsel at Paramount).

We also learned that Paramount is furiously negotiating with 20th Century Fox Chairman, Jim Gianopulous (who used to work at Paramount on the Star Trek franchise), to use the X-Men or Aliens or Predator characters in the next Star Trek movie.

It’s all great stuff for the press and the critics. But watching this war will be a sad coda and will close the door on the legacy of Gene Rodenberry. At least cyberspace holds the original series intact even if Disney tries to withdraw it and only release it every seven years, as they have done in the past with animation titles.

We may have reached the Final Frontier.

Your Thoughts

  1. Do you think Disney will eventually own and control a single universal science-fiction narrative based on Star Wars, with all the characters from Star Trek as well as the Marvel and DC Universes fully subsumed and utilized per relative timeline?
  2. Do you think the world’s leaders should get involved to protect the integrity of franchises like Star Trek and Star Wars?
  3. Do you foresee the possibility of a lethal conflict arising between the Vulcans and Jedis different philosophies?  Will the undying spirits of Spock and Obi-Wan Kenobi become the political and religious leaders of the two “unified” but contentious factions?
  4. Is it now possible that Gary Mitchell actually tapped into the Dark Side of the Force in “Where No Man Has Gone Before”?
  5. Do you think Scotty and Tony Stark could get along together in the Enterprise’s engine room?

The People Avenue presents two exceptional photographers, Mario Mencacci and Mirko Arganese. They're both Italian and passionate about Photography. Through his photos Mario reveals his sensitivity along with his love for shapes and structures. Mirko has a different approach. He focuses on the surreal and his photos take us to an imaginary world of dreams and fantasy.

                                                           Mario Mencacci :iconmariomencacci:

I’m from Italy, I live in Tuscany, I am an architect but photography is my passion. I live in Pontedera, a little Tuscan town located near many other wonderful cities, like Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Siena...I started taking photos in the 1980s, I used to love driving through the countryside taking photos of the landscapes. But then, because of my job, and because the renovations to my apartment left me without a darkroom, I stopped. After 20 years, in 2008, during a trip to Paris, this passion struck me again: In particular I enjoyed capturing the scenes I run into while on the streets, the people, the happenings, the situations… I didn’t have a photographic culture, but I kept on taking this kind of photos because I enjoyed it, weather traveling abroad or nearby, because you can take street photos everywhere, it doesn’t matter how big or little a place is. Someone saw my photos and told me that what I was doing was called street photography. Ok, I said, I don’t know what it is, but I like it! Eventually curiosity led me to read up and discover the masters of street photography, classic and contemporary ones.

Even if, like I said, I arrived to street photography through a personal journey, I believe that every street photographer is somehow influenced by Henri Cartier-Bresson, and by other big masters like Willy Ronis and Robert Doisneau, by Fred Stein’s neat compositions and by Robert Frank and William Klein’s innovative rule-breaking. Lately I’m in love with the works of Matt Stuart and Siegfried Hansen, and I am fascinated by Trent Parke’s ones. I believe that it is impossible not to be affected by these artists. I must say that also photography groups on websites like deviantArt and Flickr, allowing photographers from all over the world to express themselves, or dedicated websites like 121 Clicks, are to me an ongoing source of inspiration. There are talented and skilled people even amongst simple photo amateurs, and as a whole they point the way street photography is going today.

    Martina ti amo by mariomencacci    A short walk to the moon by mariomencacci

As for equipment, I own a Nikon D300 DSLR camera with just one lens, a 18-200 zoom, and 2 point-and-shoot cameras: a Canon G12 and a Lumix TZ10. I do like the tilting LCD on the G12, in many situations it allows me to shoot unnoticed. It recalls me of Paul Strand’s cameras, with the modified right-angle mirror lens attachment. I always carry the G12 with me.      

I like spotting things that not everybody is able to see, I try and train my eye to look for the hidden, less obvious things. I like the happy coincidence of elements that last just for a moment and that most often go unnoticed. ‘The ability to see’ is something I appreciate also when I am looking at somebody else’s photos, it moves me. Emotions can be stirred by poetry as much as by irony or by the singularity of a moment. Personally I prefer poetic scenes rather than the curious ones, but maybe I like them better because they are closer to my sensitivity: if I look at René Maltête’s photos, I am left enraptured!

It might seem strange but I enjoy taking photos by night. The night lights give everything a different, unusual look. Even if it doesn’t happen to me very often, I find particularly entertaining photographing by night. I like the cities, maybe it is because of professional bias. I like capturing people surrounded by structures, the contrast between the human life and the static nature of constructions. Geometries, streets, urban choreographies, the way they become a stage for the human show. For these reasons I wish I could visit New York, or other american cities. I’d love going back to Paris, and see how different my current vision is, compared to the one I had in 2008, when I first started taking photos.

   A touch of green by mariomencacci    Coloured street by mariomencacci   

                                                                        Mirko Arganese :iconelerko:

I am 40 years old, born in Puglia south of Italy but at the moment I live in Milan with my wife Elena and Simone and Alessandro who are our children.
My passion started relatively late, I bought my first digital SLR, an olympus e410, 10 years ago and after a short trial, I soon realized that I liked to photograph scenes that included the human element. But maybe something in me still was not ready, I left to take about 3 years ago.
Capturing the decisive moment started to interest me very much, and how this led me to a careful observation of what is happening in the space around us! As in a frame you could tell a story.
Without a doubt, some top photographers are Daido Moriyama, William Klein especially for the message that he gave to photography. Also, I admire the beautiful works of Michael Ackerman.

   sept3 by Elerko yellow by Elerko

My equipment is a simple Olympus xz2. I absolutely love shooting surreal scenes, over the last year I have been very fond of studying long exposures with the use of flash, during this project I became very enthusiastic, but now I want to devote myself to every single shot and give each photo its uniqueness.
Certainly when I'm relaxed is the best moment that I dedicate to photography, very often I reserve days I can devote entirely to photography: I go out in the morning and return home in the late evening, I walk a lot and I note, of the time I get home with excellent results, others with nothing. This depends on my being very selective with the shots.
Besides, these days I 'm always around with my Olympus in my pocket, if I see something that interests me, I do not hesitate to take it out and shoot. I never go out without it.
I have no favorite place for shooting photos, in my sessions I alternate routes and crowded places with semi deserted places.

Stephany is an American artist and writer who has been a member of DA for 7 years. She is best known for her role as a dedicated literature CV, but she is so much more than that. Long before she signed on to be a volunteer, Stephany had been working hard to deliver the largest compilation of news from all around the lit community on a weekly basis. Her undying efforts have made her a shining example for her fellow writers around the globe!

On a personal note, Stephany is described by her friends as a warm, friendly and funny deviant who "gives the best hugs." It would be a challenge to find a person who gives more time, effort and love to the community than IrrevocableFate!

Contact LightThere is a shiver along my circuitry when he comes in to check on me. I hear my gears whirr faster, but only for a moment, before my system re-adjusts their speed. I watch him from the corner of my eye, the task before me boring, monotonous, while he is exciting, lively. Lively. I run the word through my processor, its meaning sparking along my wires, slithering between my circuit board. He stops in front of me, glasses falling against the bridge of his nose.
He scribbles something on the clipboard he is holding and I watch as the ligaments and muscles flex in his arm. I rotate my vision down to my own arms, similar in design, but slimmer, more delicate. My shiny copper exterior glints, but I can see the spider web of veins on his skin. They pulse with vitality and intensity.
I remind myself that I only have circuits, wires, gears, metals. He looks into my line of vision, eyes blinking as he pushes his glasses up.

After the second day, and the day after that, the doubts started to creep in. You caught yourself sucking in a painful breath whenever you saw something of mine lying around. Bits of my life left with you would slither into your sight when you least expected it the same way the memories would swamp you if given the slightest chance.

Despite her young age and the fact that she has spent only one year on Deviant Art so far, it’s conspicuous how meiyue is determined to make this community a better place. She is incredibly kind, willing to help out friends and strangers alike, and is showing her appreciation to her followers in various ways. Annie has improved a lot during this short period, and is always willing to share her knowledge. She also takes the time to visit pages of other deviants, give out llamas, or leave constructive criticism whenever she has anything helpful to say, or whenever an honest opinion is needed. She also holds giveaways for her watchers, even though she’s saving up points for a premium membership. Annie is also an enthusiastic suggester of daily deviations. Last but not least, she found a special way to draw attention to underexposed artists. She has a custom box on her page, where she features unnoticed artists, which she updates once a week – the featuring offer is completely free. She is also a crew member of the group;ProjectPorkchop which also helps unpopular artists. I think her generosity toward other people can’t go unnoticed – she has befriended and brightened the spirits of many, and is always willing to spread a little love around.

It was a loom, woven with intricate detail and so long it would put any wizard to shame. Each pattern in the coarse mound of hair seemed to share a secret. Perhaps they were memories- I’d heard others collect memories in such ways- etchings on their bodies, collecting objects and even journal writing. Maybe this man was his own journal.
The rest of him seemed positively ordinary. He rested in his chair in a blue business suit- albeit a little outdated for fashion, but suited the character I had begun to form in my head for him. His sorrowful eyes narrowed on a frustrated brow of greying features, illuminating a sense of tiredness. Perhaps the beard in all its might was weighting down. His skin was as rough as sandpaper, blotches and scars etching his hands and face with no revelation to the puzzle of his beard.
I wanted to move closer, debating whether it was rude to ask. The very notion excited me as I built up theories as to why his beard had the
