Talk:History of Star Trek Fan Campaigns
A bit of publicity
I just contributed to a discussion on Entertainment Weekly about whether viewer opinion/feedback makes a difference:
- The only fan campaign I know of that really worked is the one I participated in, protesting the cancellation of Star Trek after its second season in 1967. The organizer, Bjo Trimble, would not provide a form letter and told participants that each letter had to be unique. That way, the TV bigshots knew these letters were coming from individuals. The guidelines for "Save Star Trek" are all online at the Fanlore website. Star Trek was picked up for a third season due to our efforts. You have to be willing to do something, not just push the "like" button.
One of the things I am most proud of in my life is the fact that I was involved in Save Star Trek. --KTJ 07:33, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
