Ronald D. Moore on CSI

OK, I missed this announcement…while watching tonight’s episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, in which they are parodying the whole Star Trek fan culture with a fictional 60s tacky SF show called “Astro Quest” (a bit of a self-parody – CSI is produced by CBS/Paramount, who owns the rights to Star Trek), there is a producer who plans to remake the show as “Astro Quest: Redux” – with a more gritty, bloody, violent version where the captain even cries (something of a parody of J.J. Abrams upcoming film). After airing a scene to the stunned silence of the convention guests, a man stands up and points to the producer yelling, “You suck!” I recognized him instantly as Ronald D. Moore – who essentially did the same thing to Battlestar Galactica!
