Subject: Blitzing for the Knight September!

Hello everyone!

This is just a reminder for you to write, write, write, those powers that be
in this month's blitz!! Everything you need to know is below...

This entire month we are focusing on the four powers that be, Tristar,
Sci-fi, TNT, and now CBS!

A lot of FK fans have wondered why we don't approach other networks about
possibly reviving the series. Well, we decided to include along with Sci-fi
and Tristar for this month a blitz to TNT along with CBS to test the

You also may call TNT's Viewer Comment and Question Line at (404) 885-4538,
however we ask that any phone calls be in addition to letters and e-mails.

For snail mail, send to:
Vice-President of Programming
TNT 1010 Techwood Drive, NW
Atlanta, GA 30318

CBS Mail Form: http://cbsnews.cbs.com/now/feedback/0,1611,412,00.html

Its going to be a big dose of e-mails from each of you the fans that would
love to not only have FK back on Sci-fi's schedule, but want to make sure
everyone knows that we are want more FK with the original cast in new
episodes and or movies!! So, what do you say? Are you ready to sit down,
take that few minutes and send off three e-mails? It could make all the
difference in the world!

Remember, say a little or say a lot, but say it!! We can make more FK

For the "whole" month of September, we are asking everyone to blitz the
feedbacks!!! For the month, you can re-use the e-mails you did before, or
write new ones. They can be long, or as short as just saying, "Bring Back
Forever Knight."

Important info to add in your letters: Sunday July 16, at 9:00 pm, ET/8:00
pm CT, SciFi aired a monthly program focussing on sci-fi movies and tv shows
that have become "cult" favorites among fans. The program's called
"SCIography", During this current blitz, we could ask that an upcoming
"SCIography" ep feature FK! So far, they plan to do eps on "Battlestar
Galactica", "Quantum Leap" and "Sliders", so asking them if they plan to do
a "SCIography" ep about FK can't hurt.

Also, Sci-Fi will be airing "Sci-Fi World", which is a 6 hour block of
sci-fi programs with a different theme each day. It's also possible to ask
them if FK will be a part of the "Sci-Fi World" programming block! So, be
sure to include these new ideas in the summer blitzes!

ALSO REMEMBER!! Sci-fi will be changing its schedule around again in the
fall.... lets make sure that we get Forever Knight on!!!

Sci-Fi's E-mail: feedback@w.......

Sony/Tristar Mail Form: http://www.spe.sony.com/spe/help_feedback_index.html

When e-mailing TriStar,(especially) give as much personal info as you
can...rather than just an e-mail name. A bit more personal carries more
weight with TPTB.

There's also a button, I made, which you can post on your websites to spread
the word about the blitzes. Have it link to my "save fk" page.

Long Live the Knight!

P.S. I'll be sending out weekly reminders on this list as I did last month
to make sure you keep on blitzing those powers that be! :)

No, she's referring to the massive letter writing campaign in the 60's that
brought Star Trek back for a third season, when it was scheduled for the ax
at the end of the second.  Sound familiar?

Also, for FK cast appearances, I think Kristin Lehman is in "The Way of
the Gun." (Saw one mention of her in a review).

Well, heck, <PG expletive>, we've been flashing some cash around, haven't
we? I am thinking of all the cash that various charties have raised, the GWD
club comes to mind.  And we have been pratically yelling for merchandise!!

IIRC, one of the ways ST was able to keep going for 10 years was all the
paperback books that were written AND the fact that ST was on practically
evey day every hour somewhere in the world.

Translation for Sony execs:  Loose that copyright and start licensing folks
to use it.  Then just watch everyone line up to buy stuff.  (And we wouldn't
have a situation like we just did.)

I had spoken to a lady from Mass. about this same subject, and was planning
to snail mail her. Unfortunately I have had a crash and lost her name and
information. If she could mail to me again, I have a piece of paper waiting
to send you! ;-)

From an article I recall seeing at Sci Fi's web site, Le Femme Nikita can
also be added to the list as more episodes have been bought for next year.

<<NBC wanted to cancel Star Trek after its first

fan outcry made a difference.  >>

Actually, the class Star Trek series was renewed twice because of fans,
both after the first season and the second season when NBC tried to
cancel it. There was even an announcement by NBC between the second and
third season saying something to the effect of "Star Trek is being
renewed due to inpouring of mail from fans!"

So...who knows? FK still has a fighting chance!

I was part of the campaigns that brought back FK for the second and third
seasons. We almost got a fourth. We used a variety of techniques, some of
which I discussed in a different email.

Don't give up.  It takes time. It was 18 months between first and second

Add Quantum Leap and most recently The Pretender to this list.
