Over the years, science fiction fans have faced their fair share of heartache as promising shows, like Joss Whedon’s Firefly and even The Orville, have been unceremoniously cut short or left in limbo by the whims of the corporate Hollywood machine. However, as any die-hard fan knows, where there’s a will, there’s a way – and sometimes, a little bit of stardust.
As a recent Den of Geek article reminds us, even popular shows with passionate fanbases, like The Orville, can struggle to gain traction for new seasons. This serves as a cautionary tale, emphasizing that online petitions alone may not be enough to make Star Trek: Legacy a reality. It’s time for the fandom to boldly go where they’ve gone before – back to the roots of the original 1960s “Save Star Trek” campaign. With a touch of nostalgia and a whole lot of determination, the Letters 4 Legacy initiative aims to make a difference and turn the tide in favor of Star Trek: Legacy.
By embracing the spirit of the original campaign, fans can unite to show their unwavering support for the creative team behind Picard Season 3, including Terry Matalas and the many TNG veterans and amazing new additions to the franchise. After all, they crafted a “love letter” to Trek and its fans, so it’s only fitting that we write back. Let us not merely wait for the stars to align – let us reach for them and guide the course of Star Trek: Legacy.
With enough passion, wit, and a healthy dose of Romulan ale, we might just be able to convince the powers-that-be at Paramount+ to give Star Trek: Legacy the green light it deserves. So, let us raise our voices, our pens, and our glasses in unison, and embark on this grand adventure together, ensuring that we don’t face the same uncertainty as fans of The Orville who are still fervently hoping for a fourth season.
