Lolita Fatjo Talks Trek X & Series V At ConBy Christian
December 3, 2000 - 12:01 AM
Last week, the Con-Fiction SF convention took place in Blackpool, England, featuring several Star Trek guests. One of the speakers was former Star Trek script coordinator Lolita Fatjo, who according to a report at the Subspace Relay revealed some major info about both the next Trek film and the next Trek series:
- According to the report, Jonathan Frakes (William T. Riker) will be directing Star Trek X, which would make this his third Trek film in a row. Fatjo said they will try to shoot the movie before the upcoming actors' strike, but this seems unlikely.
- Casting for the next Trek series was supposed to begin later this month, which I assume means December. There is a "very high possibility" of Series V taking place before the Original Series.
- Not surprisingly, Fatjo said there are no plans whatsoever for a DS9 movie.
As usual, please treat this as you would any rumour. Fatjo did indeed appear at this convention, but as is also mentioned in the original report, she wasn't completely certain of all the things she revealed, so this should not be taken as official confirmation of anything yet.
