Some new documents for the original pitch for Star Trek: The Next Generation have surfaced, and they reveal a very different take on the Enterprise’s crew, including a Vulcan captain who dies in the pilot but lives on in hologram form, able to be summoned by the acting captain. (Although if the captain dies, I don’t know why the second in command still has to be “acting captain.” You’d think he’d just get the full promotion.) As a lifelong Quantum Leap fan, this sounds like a major Al/Sam situation and I’m into that. Not as into as the actual show we ended up getting, but it sounds interesting. (via The AV Club)
