I got a hilarious e-mail in from someone who happens to be a lurker on this board, who saw the link I posted who remembered me from my trip out to Hollywood about a year ago. With permission, I not only finally revealed the answer to how I had created a "better than Trek" (her words, not mine) view of faster-than-light travel for televion, I also hit on almost every "tech & science" subject that appears here.
Not to denegrate Star Trek's power, though. I hope Eugene "W" Roddenberry uses the picture I sent him for his new project of fan tributes to Daddy Gene.
So, if you want to see the secret formula on how to make an $80,000,000 movie for $80,000 (starting with kicking the unions off the lot) see http://www.endlesswonder.com/FAQs.html - again, I'm not selling anything. I've gotten to the point where I'm giving it all away and moving on.
