    Haven't watched Ds9 since it first aired on television, and gave up after about 2 /3 seasons, so maybe I should give it another chance if it gets better. Suppose same can easily be argued with Voyager which I could enjoy. I get exactly why everyone hates it, but I at least enjoy the campy...

    No DS9 is the only Trek I truly couldn't stand, but I will still investigate this story arc so thank you :) But yes I am generally trying to use as much inspiration outside of the world of sci fi as I can, one to help give it more heart but also to help prevent it all too easily becoming...

    Sort of neither :P Basically we're set like a third of the way into the battle, and we've lost Earth and so have our last stand on a nearby Moon / Asteroid we had to terraform.

    Ha suppose you're right sorry - I was trying to be vague to avoid just obvious points of reference (like if i said it was a battle in space, everyone would offer just Star Wars and the like) and I was just going to see points of reference and see what direction that would take us. But the...

    Do new sci-fi movies rely on cgi?

    Do new sci-fi movies rely on cgi?

    Definately. Normally I'd just call you cynical, but I think when the new The Thing comes out as a prequel not remake, and yet it has the same title as the original because they just couldn't think of a good alternate title, then Holly wood has officially got really lazy. I mean come on, not...

    I'm currently writing up a script designed to start shooting in 2012-2013, and just wondering if anyone could recommend any good source material for inspiration; help nail down characters and even tone of this film. So far our current inspirations include; Firefly / Serenity Evil Dead II...

    Do new sci-fi movies rely on cgi?

    Oh definately. It's annoying as hell. Though I'd argue every film these days seem to rely WAY too much on sci fi. But yeah, cgi has taken over sci fi - I don't think we'll ever get stuff like the practical effects of The Thing or Star Wars or anything like that again.
