The Official Story

MICHAEL PILLER
(Showrunner of Star Trek: TNG, 1989–1994)


 

Michael Piller (May 30, 1948 – November 1, 2005) was an American television scriptwriter and producer, who was best known for his contributions to the Star Trek franchise.

Star Trek

In 1989, a call to Maurice Hurley, a friend who had led the writing staff of Star Trek: The Next Generation through its second year, led to Piller co-writing an episode with Michael Wagner called “Evolution”. When Wagner dropped out of leading the writing staff for the show’s third year, Piller was invited to assume the showrunner position, reporting to executive producer Rick Berman, as of the fifth episode of the third season, “The Bonding”. During the first two years of the series, the writing staff had been plagued by conflicts, with the staff continually changing as different writers came and went. Within a year, Piller had formed a strong writing team, something that had eluded previous executives. He also moved the focus away from “alien-of-the-week” or “situation-of-the-week” stories to ones that developed the main characters and their relationships, which many point to as the turning point for the series. Another key innovation was Piller’s open-door policy for scripts, allowing anyone to submit story ideas. This policy yielded some of the series’ most popular episodes, including “Yesterday’s Enterprise”.

The Next Generation ran for seven years and garnered increasing critical recognition, culminating in an Emmy Award nomination in its final year for Outstanding Drama Series. Piller was personally responsible for a number of popular episodes, including “The Best of Both Worlds”, Parts 1 & 2, which are frequently identified as the best episodes of The Next Generation, and the two-part fifth season “Unification”, which saw the appearance of Spock, portrayed by Leonard Nimoy, who originated the role on the original Star Trek series.

In late 1991, when The Next Generation executive producer Rick Berman was asked by Paramount Pictures to create a new Star Trek series, he turned to Piller to help him create the new show. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine debuted in January 1993 with “Emissary”, the pilot episode written by Piller, to the highest-ever ratings for a syndicated series premiere. Like The Next Generation, the series ran for seven years, with Piller serving as showrunner for its first two seasons.

He was succeeded as showrunner on The Next Generation by Jeri Taylor after the series’ fifth season. In 1994, Berman was again asked to create another new Star Trek series for Paramount’s new UPN television network. As before, Berman teamed with Piller, developing Star Trek: Voyager along with Taylor. When Voyager began its first season, Piller transitioned fully to Voyager and was replaced as showrunner on Deep Space Nine by Ira Steven Behr, who served as showrunner for that series’ remaining years. Piller served as showrunner and head of the writing staff for Voyager‘s first two seasons, with Taylor serving as his second-in-command. Piller left Voyager and retired from the franchise after its second season with Taylor succeeding him for the third season.

At the same time, Piller developed another series for UPN called Legend. However, the series was cancelled after only 12 episodes. Meanwhile, Piller continued as a creative consultant on Deep Space Nine and Voyager, sending in notes on scripts as they were being prepared for production.

In 1993, Piller had been approached to write one of two prospective scripts for the first Next Generation feature film, with the other written by The Next Generation staff writers Ronald D. Moore and Brannon Braga. He declined. In 1997, he was approached again to write a Next Generation feature film, collaborating with Rick Berman to write Star Trek: Insurrection. While writing the treatment for this film, he documented the entire process in the book Fade In, though it remained unpublished. Following Piller’s death in 2005, the book was published on the internet. His wife, Sandra, has subsequently sought to have the work published in bound form. She described in an interview in 2013 that the studio was surprised by his honesty about the writing process and production of Insurrection, and paraphrased the response of the executives at Paramount Pictures, saying, “We can’t let the public know what we do here; what goes on behind the scenes!”

The Truth

HOLLYWOOD PREDICTIVE PROGRAMMING

Predictive Programming is the concept whereby conspirators plan a false flag operation, they hide references to it in the popular media before the atrocity takes place; when the event occurs, the public has softened up, and therefore passively accepts it rather than offering resistance or opposition.

FALSE FLAG

A false flag is a covert operation designed to deceive; the deception creates the appearance of a particular party, group, or nation being responsible for some activity, disguising the actual source of responsibility.

SUBLIMINAL
adjective

(of a stimulus or mental process) below the threshold of sensation or consciousness; perceived by or affecting someone’s mind without their being aware of it.
