    Yeah, pretty much. The DSC stuff seems to be closer to canon, but even that seems likes mostly lip service (although I headcanon them as canonical until contradicted, which I will not do for the other tie-ins).



    Got copies of the Jurassic Park stuff recently. The '90s Topps Comics stuff is very much an alternate sequel to the original movie. The first ten issues were about those raptors (originally these issues were renamed every few issues despite being one story, although later reprinted as Jurassic Park Adventures). They then rebranded as Return to Jurassic Park, running for nine issues, with a post-movie story that ended on a cliffhanger due to the whole line being canceled, with a handful of prequel stories at the end (two followed a pair of new characters on side adventures, while the last was a flashback to the park before the movie). A pair of short story prequels to the film in a zero issue and an annual with two more stories (a prequel about the park and a story about dinosaurs on the mainland) rounded off this one. They were pretty good for what they were.

    IDW also did their own comics based on the original trilogy in the years betwee JP3 and JW1, as three miniseries. Redemption (about the Murphy siblings and another park attempt) was really bad, but The Devils in the Desert (small town dealing with dino attacks) and Dangerous Games ("The Most Dangerous Game" with dinosaurs) were worthwhile.

    Redemption is kind of interesting in that it kind of featured Wu involved in the new park; something we eventually saw with the Jurassic World series.


    Kind of liked the annual, which if I remember correctly featured a Mexican biker gang battling a pack of Dilophosaurs.

    I've been waiting for them to make a WB style Trek show full of hot young people called Starfleet Academy, all about a bunch of cadets up to shenanigans on the campus (and surrounding space, on various training assignments). Or one about Admirals and politicians hobnobbing and scheming at the highest levels of UP intrigue, in the style of those Adama and President Rosalyn bits in the last Battlestar remake.
    Assignment Earth was intended as a backdoor pilot but ultimately never got made. Starfleet Academy of course has been suggested as a spin-off for years; it was originally intended to be Star Trek VI (and we *sort of* got it with the 09 remake). Of course there's also been many video games, novels and comics with cadets but never any TV show.

    Yeah, it's pretty interesting how many ideas from the new movies were also used in the books. The Topps comics had raptors being trained, secret genetic experiments being performed under the table, dinosaurs escaping to the mainland and staying there. There were a couple of story arcs featuring characters who really seemed a lot like Franklin and Zia from Fallen Kingdom. IDW also did a bit with dinosaurs on the mainland and, as noted Redemption had another park being built, with Wu involved.

    In that story, he was basically a glorified extra and was killed off early on. Quite a few other movie characters did appear in it, though.

    That was one story in it. The other involves an investor and his young daughter seeing an incomplete park, while the staff try to keep order when the dinos start mysteriously running amuck. Wasn't overly fond of that previous one, but it was an interesting concept and did stand on its own without movie characters.
