Trek Writer, Fan-Film At Odds Over Takei Episode

Marc Scott Zicree is rewriting history, ‘New Voyages’ producer says

stnv Geekdom

Marc Scott Zicree might not be the first name you think of when it comes to Star Trek. But he has made his mark in a couple of ways, including the story for the popular “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” episode that pulled everyone out of their makeup, “Far Beyond the Stars.”

His writing since then has been a mix of “Sliders” episodes, some animated series work, and the 2007 “Star Trek: New Voyages” episode “World Enough and Time.”

This was an episode that more or less helped put fan-films on the map, and featured a guest appearance by George Takei, who has been in the news this week after “Star Trek: Beyond” revealed the Sulu character he originated would come out as gay.

Zicree has made no secret of his dislike for the recent fan-film guidelines issued by CBS Corp. and Paramount Pictures, and has continued to show support for the fan-film the two studios sued for copyright infringement, “Star Trek: Axanar.” In fact, Zicree visited the official Axanar website to explain why fan-films like “World Enough and Time” need that professional touch.
