When your franchise has been going on for almost fifty years, like Star Trek, there are going to be plenty of missed opportunities. Shows have been cancelled, stories have been left untold, and movies have been left unmade. One example of this is a never seen script for a solo Star Trek: The Next Generation that, while it was written in 1993—at least a first draft was finished in 93—never came to fruition.
Star Trek: The Next Generation—The Movie was penned by Rick Berman, who tweeted out this picture of the cover page just the other day, and Maurice Hurley, who both notably served as producers on the series over its seven-season, 178-episode run. Okay, that’s not entirely how it went down, Berman and Hurley tag teamed the idea, but when then Hurley, who filled the head writer slot on the series for a number of years, went solo for the screenplay.
