->Years before the version of ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' that we know and love, there was another version, [[DevelopmentHell scrapped by Disney]] in 1983 until Robert Zemeckis revived the concept, building on some of what had come before...Had this version been made, Jessica Rabbit would probably have been the villain and not the toon-fetish we all know today, and ''[Paul]'' Reubens might have focused on voice-over work to the detriment of [[PeeWeesPlayhouse that other bow-tied character]] he was working on as part of a stage show at the time. So we're probably better off --- but it's fascinating to see what could have been.

->There was a brief blip where and it probably was never true, but there was a rumor I remember where they were going to cast RobertRedford, and I want to say PaulNewman, as Kirk and Spock. It was a big rumor in the mid-Ď70s that they would [[TheOtherDarrin recast the roles]] with them and do it as a movie. It probably had no basis in reality. But people were just foaming at the mouth in fan circles. It was just madness, madness! ĎYOU CANíT DO THAT!í If they had done that, everything would have been different. It might have worked, but weíll never know.

->You know, I'd give good money if this version of the movie could be erased, and I could see the original concept; From what I've heard, it was supposed to be much darker, and Data was [[ICannotSelfTerminate supposed to be killed off]], [[WeUsedToBeFriends by Picard himself]]. Granted, that would have made it an even bigger ''[[{{Film/Terminator}} T2]]'' ripoff, but at least we'd be spared [[SuckinessIsPainful the pain that is soon to come]].

->For all that it is hailed as the greatest Creator/PeterDavison story and one of the greatest ever, almost nobody suggests including it as the representative story for the Davison era. The consensus seems to be that its greatness is only properly appreciated when youíve [[ItGetsBetter seen the rest of the Davison era]]...Yes, the story looks great in contrast with everything around it, but thatís not because it pays off any buildup from them. Itís because they were often a complete mess and this story isnít. Yes, this story [[DamnedByFaintPraise looks like an absolute giant]] compared to the rest of the Davison era, but thatís as much because of their flaws as its merits.\\\

->I always find it a little weird looking at art of characters that never came to fruition; it's like looking at the tombstone of someone who never existed.

->I heard a rumor one time that Edward James Olmos was considered as a Captain for ''Voyager''. I'm almost certain that's not true, but it does raise an interesting question of what Commander Adama of ''[[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Battlestar Galactica]]'' would have done in Janeway's place. Well first, I think it's pretty damn obvious we'd see a lot more of Neelix being [[TakeThatScrappy bludgeoned with a flashlight.]]

'''David''': Was the plan to have [[JackNicholson Nicholson]] reprise his role?\\
'''Chris''': Iím not sure if they were planning on getting Nicholson back or not. I imagine they probably were, though. I mean, itís not like there could ever be another actor who could do such a [[MarkHamill great, definitive take]] [[HeathLedger with that role, right?]]\\
