Despite the scare that the voices of Futurama could be recast due to a dispute over salaries, the original cast has reached an agreement to return for the resurrected show, which will begin next year.
TheThunderChild writes “Fan fiction has long been a part of science fiction fandom, getting its first serious start with Star Trek. There’s even a website that has thousands of fan fiction stories for hundreds of TV series and movies. (FanFiction.net). The vast majority of copyright holders have no problem with fan fiction sites – the handful who do make their wishes known and the sites take down any such fiction and do not accept new stories using their characters. A favorite Star Trek fan fiction story was Visit To A Weird Planet Revisited,in which a transporter malfunction causes William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and DeForest Kelley to materialize in the bodies of Kirk, Spock and McCoy during the episode Mirror, Mirror. That story has inspired The Thunder Child’s first fan-fiction offering, The People Out There, and its sequel, In The Dark. The first episode (new chapters uploaded every Monday) is available at our sister site: http://volcanoseven.com/ThePeopleOutThere/“
