Extreme Customer Evangelism

Startreknewvoyages

When Star Trek (original series) first began, the USS Enterprise set out on a five-year mission. However, NBC cut the mission short cancelling the series after only three years (seasons).

Now a crew of Star Trek evangelists ranging from an urologist to an Elvis Presley impersonator are resurrecting the original series and completing the mission by filming new episodes playing off the original timeline. Yep … these extreme Star Trek evangelists are filming new episodes under the name STAR TREK NEW VOYAGES. They've filmed two episodes and the third episode is to be released in the Summer of 2006.

    Modern brands are all about audience participation—brand managers are really managers of public perceptions, guiding them to (hopefully) something that resembles the corporate vision. This is a perfect example.

    Great post!

    Why don’t the film industry always make movies together with there fans. If the original actors also was in this “fan movies” would they then been the original film? The fans can give the film industry passion and free marketing if they work as ONE.

    PS I am a fan of Jonnie More and Jack Jan!
