Prepare yourselves for a lil Star Trek spam, guys, basically there’s some real shit going down in the Star Trek fandom in the form of Bob Orci.
Bob Orci is a screenwriter commonly associated with Alex Kurtzman and JJ Abrams, and is notorious for being a real A-hole to fans. Like, when it became pretty clear that the Trekkies weren’t fans of Star Trek Into Darkness (for a lot of reasons: incoherent plot, whitewashing, objectification of the women) he got really defensive, insulted fans, attacked them verbally, and basically was just a real douchecanoe.
Now, even after that, the bad press regarding the Trekkies and the bad press regarding the way he handled a lot of things from the film, he’s gunning to direct the next movie.
This isn’t just any movie for us, either. It’s set to premiere on our 50th Anniversary, September 8, 2016. It’s really amazing and special to us and we’re really excited and we’re desperate to make sure that Bob Orci - a man that the Trek fandom does not like and does not respect the source material we all love - isn’t the man in charge of the franchise whenever the 50th rolls around.
So you might see us pushing Star Trek stuff and also the tag #StopOrci2014, but that’s just because we’re really upset and we’re trying to generate momentum and get Paramount to understand that we don’t want Bob Orci to take over Star Trek
-Steve Rogers was raised by an Irish-catholic single mom in New York in the Depression era -Steve Rogers grew up with a ton of disabilities -Steve Rogers had an apartment in an incredibly gay section of New York -Steve Rogers was a fine arts student -Steve Rogers completely missed the Red Scare, McCarthyism, the Cold War, Vietnam, Korea, etc. -Steve Rogers was written by two Jewish guys -Steve Rogers had a gay best friend and did not consider his love to be any less valid or less real -Steve Rogers worked with Japanese-American and black soldiers in, again, the Second World War -Steve Rogers was just in a movie about how utterly fucked up the military-industrial complex is Basically if your Steve Rogers is a conservative commie-hating uberChristian who would be at home in a racist southern church, you’re doing something wrong.
AU where superheroes can go through character development without their romantic partners being killed off for the sake of shaking things up
PLEASE do not be an asshole to these people, I BEG you. Keep it short and sweet and POLITE. No more than maybe 6 sentences or it’ll go immediately into the round file aka trash. Trust me, I’ve done it myself or have turned it over to Studio security as a risk factor if the writer sounded like a nut-job or was advocating violence in any way.
Do not send notes or emails to Rob Moore or Frederick Hartsberry, two names I’ve heard tossed around. They have nothing to do with physical production and you’ll just be bothering them needlessly.
Do send notes (NOT EMAILS THEY WILL NEVER READ THEM) to the following executives if you absolutely feel that you must:
Brad Grey, Chairman & CEO
Adam Goodman, President Paramount Film Group
Marc Evans, President of Production
Lee Rosenthal, President of Physical Production
Address: Paramount Pictures 5555 Melrose Avenue Hollywood, CA 90038
I do not have buildings or suite addresses except for one and I’m not giving it out, sorry.
I AM BEGGING YOU *PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE* BE POLITE.
One of these men is my former boss (who is an ABSOLUTE WONDERFUL HUMAN BEING whom I love dearly and heartily respect) and I am going to see him this summer and I don’t want to have to feel the need to apologize for the fandom. I do not want to lose his goodwill or be blacklisted from the Studio for associating with fandom. PLEASE.
Tips avoid using swears/directly insulting Orci but by all means send notes we might actually be able to get this guy off of trek. He has been a huge problem since the conception.
Be polite. Be courteous. State your objections without insulting anyone.
