Lucas also had a drive to line his own pockets...

I have nothing against profiting from one's creations. But it became all about the $$$ and not the quality for Lucas.

Well, the same happened with Trek during it's later years, but hopefully this new team will do a great job.

True, but he also funded his own films, which was wildly expensive too.

I do have a problem with it. Once you create a fan base...it's not about you and your pockets anymore. Music mogels will tell you tat...it's about being true to you fans. but also being true to yourself too. It's a delicate balance but pursuing it for the money is sure to tip that balance...that's not the right motivation for an artist have..

"Now that is good! That makes Roddenberry look like nothing!"

I don't think any of Voyager fits into this framework.

But it's naive to say that Roddenberry wasn't trying to make a buck. I mean, after all, the words "Beyond the rim of the starlight" were penned so he could make more royalty money...

I disagree because Voyager was a family. Janeway was fierce about her ship and crew and so was Kirk. She had a Vulcan friend like Kirk and she always got her crew home and they would do everything for her just as Kirk would

Gene told me the other day that he liked most of what was going on in the movie, but didn't like the guys welding the Enterprise together on the Earth. He told me it was built in space.
