Earth 2: Eden Advance (E2EA) Topics:

Kim <Hunter3733@aol.com> of "The New Pacifica Census Bureau" is collecting
demographics of E2EA list members and requests that members voluntarily provide
the following information:
Name, age, sex (yes please is not an appropriate answer), income, occupation,
where you're from, favorite E2 character, favorite E2 story line and anything
else you think is pertinent to the group.

Mark <mjm4@ix.netcom.com> is collecting names/addresses/email addresses/etc for
the E2EA membership database. Please send Mark your address info.


CAt <domino@cybercomm.net> has volunteered to coordinate the "mail target of the
week" which is now "Steve Spielberg" (note: on Larry King live, Spielberg said
he preferred to be called "Steve"). See Ambin info below for more full details.
CAt's recommendations are to include in your letter:
Your demographics (especially if you have desirable ones), that you watched the
show loyally, but you had difficulty with the
a.time slot
b. constant preemptions.
That you had may friends who watched but had trouble with the above. What you
especially liked about the show (originality, character development, etc.) A
request/plea to help campaign for E2's continued existance, or if he can't, to
please refer our letters to whoever might use them best. DO NOT put any mention
of E2 on the outside of the envelope. Sharon <SCHLUHS5@technet.nm.org> and Mike
<mbrando@pe-nelson.com> add you might want to consider *handwritten* letters as
opposed to laser printed.

Anis <bq689@freenet.carleton.ca> suggests using "scrap" paper to emphasize the
"green" aspects of E2 since part of the reason for Earth2 was to create an
indirect reminder to take care of the environment.

E2EA Merchandising:

Vicky <Seleya8@aol.com> sent out a vote sheet/questionaire on articles you'd
like to see. Please fill it out and return to Vicky (with INPUT!!! <g>). She

Clancyettes, The "VA-1587" in similar type to the Ops jacket, The Hotel New
Pacifica and any further E2:EA logo concepts."

Vivian <vivien@rfx.rfx.com> spoke to Hugo Scales this week and when she brought
up New Pacificon (he loved the name, made him laugh) he said that while he could
not promise Michael Duggan's committment, she should send him whatever material
she has on E2: EA and New Pacificon to him via snail mail. He also suggested
contacting the actors especially Clancy Brown about attending. He knows that CB
still maintains an interest in the show and what we are doing.

A letter from Michael Duggan was forwarded to many of the E2 web sites this
week, apparently in the hope of multiple postings to all E2 support groups. The
text of this letter (with preface from a 'Mike McQ') and the full text of the M.
Duggan letter follow below:

"Michael Duggan asked me to send the following letter to as many relevant E2
sites and newsgroups that I could find. I work for an Internet access provider
and have a better chance of finding them all than he does. Please post to as
many groups as ight be interested. I'll look for a few more, but I'm sure you'll
get the major ones.

Thanks, Mike McQ"

"Dear supporters of Earth 2:

I'm writing this at the request of Michael Duggan, Executive Producer and
co-creator of the series. Michael has read the many letters that have poured in
over the last few months, and as they have become too numerous for us to respond
to, he has asked that I post this as a response at the various web sites.

Your words of encouragement have indeed been appreciated. The page ad in Variety
this past June was both moving and an exceptional example of how good television
can arouse and mobilize its audiences. Even having said that, it was a rare

In the interest of presenting some facts amidst the the feelings of
disappointment, it should be made clear that many elements come into play in the
survival of a television series. Earth 2 was a mammoth undertaking. It ranks
among the most expensive shows ever produced at Universal Television. NBC was
always a strong supporter of the show. Unfortunately, the fiscal needs of
Universal, were such that creative elements of the show would have been
jeopardized to an unacceptable level. Unacceptable to the network (NBC) and to
the show's creators. Ultimately, in an attempt to find a solution to its
financial concerns, Universal opted to replace the show's creators and Exec
producers with a new team. NBC found the new direction not to their liking and
decided to cancel the show.

Although Michael is not in a position to offer much hope at this time, it is not
to say that the show is irreconcilibly dead. Universal is in the midst of a
transition. New ownership (Seagrams/ Bronfman) has brought with it the
beginnings of new senior level management (Ron Meyer from CAA), and possibly new
direction and enthusiasm for the television division. Steven Spielberg has told
Michael he was a huge fan of the show, but to the best of my knowledge, he has
not as of yet, flexed his considerable strength on its demise. Still, a fairly
massive push would be needed to jumpstart Universal, NBC or even another network
to reinstate the series. The letters, postings, ads, and general word of mouth
have gone a long way to keep the show on the minds of those needing persuasion,
and if it is indeed an indication of what's out there, then it's true that
there's a lot of life left in the hearts of those who loved Earth 2.

Thank you. Long live E2, its devoted fan base, and with them, Devon, Danziger,
and all the inhabs of G889.

Hugo Scales (for Michael Duggan)"
