Today is a very important day. - T'Pol, "Twilight"
It took 12 years, but Archer was finally cured and Earth saved because Dr. Phlox never gave up. Today could be our important day to save Star Trek: Enterprise, we don't know. But like Dr. Phlox, we can never give up.

TU's Executive Staff should definitely endorse your 'plague proposal' to JJ Abrams.
Thank you so much for your compliment It is great to see that there are still people here who value my work.
Since I send in my suggestion I haven't heard anything back, so I don't know if the project is still going to take place.
You pump! I blow!

Due to the fact that unfortunately we only received a small amount of entries we will be submitting them all.
A big thank you to all who contributed.

That is thekind of message JJ Abrams should get, nothing else, no other letter. The "tell JJ Abrams what you would like to see in the movie" looks like a good idea from the fans' side, but it's actually the opposite. Why? Because it draws producers, directors and writers away from the fans and general viewers, unless it's properly done, and usually it's not properly done at all; the fan just wants the director/producer/writer to do what he (the fan) says, disguised under the name of "suggestions", "whishes" or "ideas".
This is one of the major draw-backs of Trek United, as it has been since the Save Enterprise days, and it keeps spreading all around on every single idea that comes up: seeing it all only from the fan side, precisely when all these things are handled by professionals and, if it all is being watched from the outside, it should be done by people who can see things objectively enough to do things the proper way even if they're not professionals.
Inga's letter should be taken as an example of the way to do every single thing related to Trek from our side. If necessary, it should be tattooed on everyone's forehead to see it 24/7 and learn the way to do it. No other letter, no other approach should be done, but this one, this way.
