These two videos were brought to my attention by reader “Supervisor 194” (David Thomas) who created these two splendid opening sequences to the series that never was: Assignment: Earth. I love the music to these; the first being the original arrangement, and the second, a jazzier, ’70’s version.
I think Assignment: Earth would have made a wonderful series. A lot of people see Gary Seven as an American version of Dr. Who, and I can see that quite easily. Now if only someone in Hollywood would make this real — I think Benedict Cumberbatch would made a fine Seven!
Ah Gary Seven! One of the few characters who could equal Spock’s coolness in the original series. Loved Teri Garr and Robert Lansing here (and the cat too!) I’m really sorry this teaser/pilot disguised as a Star Trek episode wasn’t made into a regular series; I think it would have been fun!
I wonder if there is any Gary Seven fan fiction out there? I think Bryan Cranston would make an excellent Seven in a reboot!
Inspired by today’s Anniversary, I made this little poster; 48 images for 48 years! Happy Birthday Star Trek! With Love to Bill, Leonard, George, Nichelle, Walter and Grace!! Congratulations on being part one of the best and happiest parts of American culture! May you truly LIVE LONG & PROSPER! Love, Therese
