Well that's a shock. Given what he did with 1-3 it can hardly be a surprise.

I have to say I would love to see a movie about tiny people fighting big monster Midichlorians, if only for the perpetual shrieking howls of outrage it would provoke.

That's an off day script idea for a TV series when you have ran out of ideas to fill out a season... That sort of episode which is usually the worse of that season too.

I wonder how Rick McCallum would have felt about this one.

Hey. say what you will, but Sub Rosa was absolutely brilliant! As a comedy, that is, but still... That episode alone makes season 7 worthwile. ;)

As for the Star Wars idea... Yeah, it's not great. The artist impressions make it even sillier.

I am sure some Trek writer came up with a script idea that they had to shrink a shuttlecraft down to microscopic levels to go save one of the members of the crew from a fatal illness. Other writers probably looked at him like he was stupid.

They did have something like that in DS9 but that was a fun episode.

Or that they wouldn't get away with such a blatant ripoff of Fantastic Voyage.
