Director Steven Soderbergh and writer Lem Dobbs on The Limey. An open and honest discussion of how the differences between writing a movie and directing a movie effect the story being told. Dobbs rightfully gets ticked at reviewers who tend to blame the writer, who has zero power, for "bad scripting" when the choices made by directors, producers, etc. made the changes to the script that lead to complaints.
VR is now what it will be in the future, only in the future it'll be running at a higher resolution with better lenses and larger field of views for improved immersion and clarity (and no doubt more complex input devices).
True, but a similar analogy can be made about the Atari 2600 and an XBox One. Model T and a Smart Car. ENIAC and an iPad. I can't fault people for not wanting to engage in the early, rough, scrambling to find its way days of an emerging technology. Usually it sucks. Most people are just honestly realizing "yeah, this thing just isn't there yet."
I believe Will's idea is a good one, but I also think in 10+ years he'll be watching the first 'VR immersion feed star' going: "I had that idea first... grumble... grumble..."
Next Gen, then DS9, and if you're still craving for more check out the Original Series, unless you just can't get past the 60's era trappings.
Avoid Voyager. The Holographic Doctor and the Seven of Nine are the only interesting characters the rest are boring and interchangeable. I watched it all and to this day still consider it time wasted (kinda like Lost!)
Enterprise came when people were burnt out on Trek by the bad movies and Voyager, but holds up better now. The characters are much better than Voyager's, but it can be a little bland and slow in spots, particularly early. Plus the captain has a dog. On a spaceship.
