TNG ReWrite and Fan Series Creation
• What we'll do Let's start from the very beginning - a very good place to start! Assuming we were the new writers in the Hart Building for Star Trek TNG for Season 2 onward, how would we re-engineer the series engine for a better dramatic narrative? Would we disregard Roddenberry's rules about interpersonal conflict? How would the Enterprise D change as a ship design? What about it's mission and main cast? Let's explore this together, both for the sake of honing our writing skills, but also to explore the possibility of creating our own late 23rd to mid-24th Century Trek fan series (filling in the gaps between the TOS movies and TNG) • What to bring Bring what you need to write and organize your thoughts, be it a laptop, notebook, pens, pencils, or notecards. I will supply a dry erase board, pens, 3x5 notecards, and a cork board to help us "break the story" in an approach similar to one used to draft the "Back to the Future" and other successful films. If possible, read/review "Story" by Robert McKee, or "The 50 Year Mission" by Edward Gross and Mark A. Altman. • Important to know The default location is in Wilsonville, but if there's enough demand and suggestions, we can relocate to a larger venue closer to the Tigard/Beaverton area.

What we're about

Public Group

The aim of this group is to unite fans of Star Trek, young and old, who enjoy the shows, films, or play Star Trek Online. We will be meeting face to face and online. All are welcome. Regular members will become part of the crew of the U.S.S. Portland. Based in the Portland metro area, we have meetups ranging from as far west as Beaverton, to the north in Vancouver, to the south in Oregon City, and to the east in...well we haven't had much towards the east yet :) Perhaps a Trek-style hike on Mt. Hood sometime? Come and enjoy us!

Never forget Chris Rockhold, our founder. May he rest in his new job in Kansas teaching pilots how to fly!
