Ronald D. Moore is Writing a "Star Wars" TV Script? Just as Long as He is Demoted to "25th Staff Writer to The Left." Right?
As Ronald D. Moore's solo scriptwriting chores in "GINO" and "Caprica" proved, he needs layers upon layers of level headed authority above him to veto any "kooky" story ideas he may have. He should have had countless layers of level headed authority above him reviewing all of his "GINO" and "Caprica" scripts (primarily the "GINO" pilot / mini-series) and vetoing all of his bad ideas...
"Shirts, ties and business suits worn by a group of people thousands of light years from Earth and have never heard of Earth?? Ain't gonna happen!!"
"Edward James Olmos as an endlessly frowning Commander Adama??" Ain't gonna happen!!
"Rape, torture, and murder in what should have been a mass market / pop culture friendly continuation of Battlestar Galactica from 1978?? Ain't gonna happen!!"
The silver linings in Ronald D. Moore's possible one and only one "Star Wars" script assignment are as follows:
1. He won't be in charge of anything. If he has bad ideas, they will get vetoed.
2. Walt Disney isn't stupid the way Universal Studios is - (Jettisoning the opportunity to make a property mass market and pop culture friendly in favor of following Ronald D. Moore's "Kooky" and bad take on a property that only attracts the demographically limiting "far-right nuts" in our society.)
