Paramount Pictures & Microsoft present
The Star Trek Writer's Construction Kit
for Windows 95
Announcing the launch of the latest version of TSTWCK, a 32-bit application
specifically designed to take advantage of the new WINDOWS 95 operating
system. With this plug-in module for WORD95 & MS WORKS, you can now create
your very own scripts for submission to Paramount!
All the features of the previous version:
If your scripts are too heavily weighted towards character development,
or your plot threads are getting too complex, then simply drag an outline
around the offending section of your script, click the spanner icon and
hey-presto! Instant technobabble filler for your script! Who says EPS
power taps and phased warp plasma relays can't be exciting?
Excitement Removal WizardTM
It happens all the time. You've written a script full of dynamic action
sequences and breathtaking battle scenes, only for Paramount to announce
budget cuts for the next season. Just one click of the JeriTaylor iconTM
allows you to remove these costly scenes, inserting tender one-on-one
character- building dialogue sequences instead.
Have you written a blockbusting script for your favourite Star Trek
character, pushing them to their emotional limits in a tense, nail-biting
and heart-stopping fashion, only to find that Paramount have assigned you a
boring Neelix or Nog-based episode? Character IntelliSenseTM allows you
to instantly re-assign key scenes for the characters Paramount have
selected for you. Just click and go!
Plus! New for WINDOWS 95:
Temporal Anomaly plug-in moduleTM
Is your script lacking that one important detail that would set it apart
from all the others? With this new plug-in module, even you can write
exciting scripts up to the lofty standards of Brannon Braga, Rick Berman
and Ronald D. Moore. Use the new Anomaly-Mapping WizardTM, featuring
over 6000 different types of anomaly texture on CD. Make your time-phased
warp interloop conduit stand out from the crowd! As used in the first
season of Voyager.
Is the current season suffering a massive ratings drop? Does your
script lack that certain "pull" that other syndicated shows have in
abundance? The new DollyTart mode will soon get bums back on seats by
tarting up all the female characters in your script! High-heels? No
problem. Dynasty wigs and shoulder pads? A mere mouse-click away! The
STAR TREK WRITER'S CONSTRUCTION KIT lets you make the executive
decisions on what's best for the characters of the show!
We've all been there before. It's two days before your deadline and
your script is still a complete blank. What to do for inspiration!
Scratch your head no longer, for the new HoloWizardTM is here. Simply
OCR a page or two from your favourite classic literary work and paste it
into the HoloWizardTM. Within seconds, you have the basic structure for
a Holodeck-based episode designed to fit your specifications! If you
lack the ability to OCR pages, then don't fear. HoloWizardTM comes with
a built-in AutoBardTM patch, featuring the complete works of William
Shakespeare, Arthur Conan Doyle, Jane Austen, H. G. Wells, Joseph Conrad
and the Bronte sisters! Look out for more AutoBardTM patches on various
Specially designed by Maxis for the STAR TREK WRITER'S CONSTRUCTION KIT.
Now you can play God with an entire DNA pool at your fingertips. Create
your own race of militaristic bi-pedial aliens to terrify the Federation.
After creating compound aliens with the DNA fragments of your choice, run
the Lumps EditorTM to wrinkle the forehead, neck or nose of your new
creation -- give your aliens that distinctive Star Trek touch!
Are your race of Sim Alien baddies proving to be too tough? Does the
crew of the Enterprise, Voyager and Deep Space Nine find themselves
constantly at odds with the overwhelming might of your favourite military
faction? Fear not! Simply click the 'Hugh' icon and your alien
adversaries will be reduced to mere quivering sheep. Options include
faction sub-splitting, elemental aversion (as pre-tested on Doctor Who's
cybermen) and our patented
Last minute addition!
Is your script lacking the dynamic range of drama, character development
and pacing found in rival sci-fi shows? Is your season of Star Trek fading
into obscurity, overshadowed by the faultless quality of the competition?
Then have no fear! The Babylonian GopherTM will analyse every scene of
every script in your current season and modify changes on a global level,
implanting interlinking themes, fully-structured character development and
ensuring that the story doesn't end when the credits roll.
