Roger M. Wilcox's Screenplays
And I use the term "screenplays" here loosely. Very loosely.
Borged to Death! — a rollicking romp through Stephen Ratliff's
"Marrissa" universe of Star Trek: The Next Generation which I first
posted to Usenet in October of 1997. Here are
part 2, and
part 3. (Note: Stephen Ratliff's "Marrissa"
storys [sic] have made him the Ed Wood of Star Trek fanfiction.
See why at the Stephen
Ratliff MSTing Archive [offsite].)
The Parody From Hell! — also known as Parody! Crossover! The
"Other Show"!. This is a parody/crossover of Babylon 5 and
Star Trek: The Next Generation, set near the beginning of Babylon
5's second season. I first posted it to Usenet waaaay back in 1994,
in part 1 and part 2.
Battlestar CRAP-tica is parody I wrote
in 1980. It borrowed some ideas — okay, a lot of ideas —
from MAD magazine's satire Cattle-Car Galaxica, and may have even helped
to inspire parts of a Battlestar Galactica parody written by a guy I
knew named Ashby Clark. Note: this "screenplay" is so old, it's not even
in real screenplay format!
Battlestar CRAP-tica: The spine-tingling
second episode! Chills! Spills! Thrills! Incorrect Battlestar Galactica
terminology! Doctor X! The Reconnaisence [sic] wiper! A flirtatious
feminine computer! With a guest appearance by special relativity.
Battlestar CRAP-tica is a 1983 rewrite of
the above two Battlestar Galactica parodies, combined and condensed down
into a single episode. Like the original, I wrote this "screenplay"
before I learned real screenplay format.
Star Trek: Not of Matter was a script I
wrote for an assignment in my 11th grade Science Fiction Literature class, all
the way back in 1982. Don't expect my characterizations of the Enterprise's
crew members to be anything like they were on the show. Don't expect Uhura's
name to be spelled correctly, either.
Star Trick: The Ion Tempest is a 1982 parody
I wrote of the original Star Trek TV series. It was inspired by
the fact that the movie Forbidden Planet was based on Shakespeare's play
The Tempest, but, darn it, there weren't any episodes of Star
Trek that were based on The Tempest! Note: like Battlestar
CRAP-tica, this "screenplay" is so old it's not even in real screenplay
Star Trick: The Ion Tempest is a 1989 rewrite of
the above 1982 Star Trek parody. Not much was changed between the two.
A Bush Carol is a sceenplay I wrote for my
1988 political science class, based on Charles Dickens's similarly-named
classic. The professor for the class had a left-leaning political bent,
and this screenplay reflects that.
Civil War Chess! is another parody of
the original Star Trek TV series, based on the hilarious .signature
line of Dave Spensley. This script is not finished and probably
never will be, because, darn it, I just can't think of anything terribly
humorous to do with the premise.
