Love ST:TMP. Love the thesis. But this is what I love the most:

I now work as a violinist, violist, orchestrator and composer, have married the love of my life and live with him and our two cats in Torrance.


Indeed- congratulations to Cameron and his husband for thier life together and their art.


Dear Adm Naismith,
Oh my gosh, as I said to Sean, my apologies for this "thank you" being 6.5 years late. I really did have the best of intentions back in 2010 when Lukas originally posted the thesis and you sent your gracious best wishes, but life must have thrown some roadblock in the way. Thank you for your humanity and kind thoughts!
Cheers & Happy New Year ... from all of us down here in Torrance!
Cameron

Thanks a lot for sharing your Thesis with us, Cameron!

Hi Olivier,
Multiple apologies due ... for this "thank you" being a mere 6.5 years late ... and for the cut-and-paste thank you note. I had meant to reply back when Lukas first posted the thesis but you know ... best laid plans and all that ... Just came looking to see if it was still posted on the site and when I saw that it was, remembered with horror that I never replied to those hardy few of you who bravely waded through it!
Cheers & Happy New Year!
Cameron

I've just skimmed the piece, but wow! Can't wait to dive in properly.

Wow! Talk about dedication. I just downloaded the thesis and plan on reading it later (and over the next few days).

Re: this... One of those leads turned out to be a gold mine of fascinating information. Preston Neal Jones is a writer who compiled an oral history of the making of ST:TMP with the aim of publishing a book about its complicated journey to the big screen.

I always wondered whatever happened with this. I'd love to read it, especially since we'll probably never get a definitive making-of book or documentary from Paramount.

No problem. Still here, 6.5 years later! And the coolest thing is we finally got Preston's book. smile
