Background information Edit
At one point, during the formation of the original Star Trek series concept in 1964, Gene Roddenberry and Herb Solow changed the series title to Gulliver's Travels and named the main protagonist Captain Gulliver. Several days later Roddenberry and Solow realized they'd gone too far, and dismissed the Gulliver idea. Solow sarcastically commented, "Who knows? Bill Shatner could have been Captain Gulliver, and the sequels to the original series would have been Gulliver's Travels: The Next Generation and Gulliver's Travels: Deep Space Nine. Rather than "Trekkies", we would have had "Gullies". Changing the name back was a wise move." (Inside Star Trek: The Real Story, pp. 18-19)
