What's on your mind?
Hello everyone, I found few deleted scenes from Terra Nova, and one of them looks like it was very important, when Jim and Mark are talking (time - 7:20). Maybe it was deleted because it was supposed to be used in different story plot, but after all I would be glad to know more about it. I am not native English-speaker so I can not clearly understand everything, when they are talking, only a little bit. Would someone please write me here what was Mark with Jim talking about? It would be really useful for me. Link to video is here: https://vimeo.com/51228105
In an early concept for the show from 2009, Mark was supposed to be a villain. In the 2009 version, Commander Taylor was the show’s main antagonist, and Mark (his name was actually Robbie in the 2009 script) was supposed to be Taylor’s spy in a resistance movement against Taylor.
In the version from 2010 (that’s where the deleted scene you linked to is from), Mark was still written as a traitor. This time, however, it seems he was pretending to be on Taylor’s side while actually working against Taylor, not the other way around. I’m not entirely sure if Mark was supposed to be a villain (though he was definitely shady). The fact that Mark said some people were on the Sixers’ side because they knew the truth, that’s making me think that maybe the writers were planning on revealing later on that Taylor was the big bad of the story and the Sixers had been the good guys all along. Or maybe Mark was just meant to be evil and delusional, I’m not sure. As far as I know, the creators of the show didn’t reveal how they were planning on resolving this storyline.
In the final version of the show, the one that was made and aired in 2011, this plotline where a bunch of people sympathized with the Sixers because of “the truth” was scrapped. Taylor was portrayed as the good guy, the Sixers as the bad guys, and as a result the Sixers only had two associates in the colony, Boylan and Skye. In this final version, the writers decided not to make Mark a traitor after all. The scene you linked to was deleted, and the character’s nature was changed from shady to adorkable (probably to make him a better match for Maddy).
Transcript of the deleted scene:
Mark: Excuse me, Mr. Shannon? I’m sorry to interrupt. Commander Taylor wants to see you.
*Jim and Mark walk next to the fence*
Jim: Hey, uh, I must have got turned around. I thought it was that way.
Mark: You took a big chance smuggling your daughter here. What the hell were you thinking?
Jim: I’m not sure that’s any of your business.
Mark: It wasn’t part of the plan. You made a deal, Shannon.
Jim: They said they could get me out of Golad and into Hope Plaza. And no, I didn’t mention Zoe ’cause I didn’t want to push my luck. When you’re in a jail cell, you don’t exactly have a lot of leverage.
Mark: Water under the bridge. You made it through, so now it’s time for you to hold up your end of the bargain.
Jim: Which is what? No one ever gave me a straight answer, just that I’d be contacted by someone on the other side.
Mark: You will be told what you need to know when you need to know it.
Jim: You’re with Mira?
Mark: Look, if you knew the truth about the sixth pilgrimage, you’d understand why some of us are on their side.
*Mark starts to leave*
Jim: Wait. Who are they? And why did they come here?
Mark: It’s not for me to tell.
*Mark starts to leave again, Jim grabs him*
Jim: I want answers, otherwise… I’m out.
Mark: Mmm-mmm. There’s no out.
*Jim pushes Mark away*
Mark: Enjoy being back with your family.
*Mark starts to leave for the final time, keeps walking even when Jim speaks to him*
Jim: Hey. Why me? Why go to all the trouble of bringing me here? Why me?
As a thank you, I can grant you a request for a Terra Nova one-shot fanfic or some kind of a graphic edit or a gifset on Tumblr if you’re into that (provided that your request is within my ability).
Hey guys, hope you are all doing great at home. Anyone wants a Terra Nova Graphic novel? I am an artist and thinking of starting a graphic novel with realistic art style. How I wish I could get a licence for official publishing but that doesn't seem possible. I am in for an unofficial version, just for the fans of Terra Nova. This will be based on how the responses from you guys are, you are welcome for any ideas/suggestions. Cheers
It's sure been a really long time since my last episode, even longer than normal. There's a reason for that, however. The story for this episode was one that I have wanted to tell ever since I originally came up with the basic premise for this fan made season 2. Before any of my new characters existed, I was thinking about the story of this episode. As I was writing it, I found that I wouldn't be able to do everything I wanted within the normal episode length, so this episode became a two parter, clocking in at around 82 pages long. This is longest thing I have ever written, and will probably remain that way until the finale.
I hope you all enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
Here are some screenshots I gathered of most of the major dinosaurs featured during the Terra Nova series:
Feel free to use them for this wiki if you please
Ever since the show aired, Terra Nova could be streamed on Netflix. This certainly helped to attract new fans for the show. Every year I watched a few episodes of Terra Nova on Netflix, even though I own the DVD. Hoping this would increase the number of viewers for the show. However, in March, this year, the show was removed from Netflix. This is a shame because Netflix is one of the most used viewing platforms. The show can still be streamed on Amazon Prime and other platforms.
On March 20 2019, Disney aquired most of 21st Century Fox assets. This means that Terra Nova is now owned by Disney. This could be the reason it was removed from Netflix. Maybe, after Netflix makes a new deal with Disney, the show will be back. Maybe the show can be streamed on Disney's own upcoming streaming platform Disney+.
Disney is now the owner of Terra Nova (as far as we know). Maybe, just maybe, Disney can be persuaded to give the series a second chance or to sell it to another network who want to try.
Just curious, to any of you who have watched and remembered the FOX tv series “Terra Nova”, theres something I like to ask based on it;
Is there a Cretaceous period fossil formation that had the same (or at least a similar) environment to where the Terra Nova colony was based?
Note, I know it was filmed in Queensland, Australia. I’m just wondering if there’s any area in the fossil record that had a similar habitat to it?
Well, late as usual, but it's finally here! We're officially at the halfway point. I hope you all enjoy.
And here is the previous episode: https://terranova.fandom.com/wiki/Thread:10043
I'd like to make a Yuletide-themed cover picture for our wiki's facebook page.
Could you help me find a few pictures of Terra Nova's main actors in a Yule setting? Like this one->
Well, I wanted to buy a cellphone bag for my Touch Screen Phone. I found free cases and bags for glasses at a second hand store, that I did use for makeshift cellphone cases and bags and did save money not buying expensive cellphone bags and I like that.
Hi, Everyone who loves Terra Nova like me and all their creatures on the show. I am a fanfiction writer myself.
My name is Nick.
I have an idea for a future fiction series after Terrra Nova Season 1.
No one has thought of this, So i will be the first to say this.
Dinosaurs become Man's Pre Best Friend.
It starts with a girl who is 5 years old when she got seperated from her family by the slashers. The slashers don't kill her. She befriends them and Learns to be friends with the animals. Including The Carnotaurs.
What do you people think?
I would love to have this request granted.
Here is an unfinished story from FF.net that inspired the Request.
To all fans of this fantastic series it is now about 7 years since the show premiered.
This weekend I intend to honour the show and the characters by watching the series from one end to the other.
Though I'd like to ask to anyone that may be reading this.
What are your favourite character(s)
Try adding also a photo of your favourite character.
Mine's Maddy Shannon portrayed by the talented Naomi Scott.
After I saw this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdKBH8_1GH8. My heart was melting.
After months of being busy, I managed to finish this episode.
We're almost to the halfway point of the story!
Here's the previous episode just in case: http://terranova.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:9398
The new Jurassic World movie is coming soon. As a promotion, you can now #AdoptADino on the website http://www.dinosaurprotectiongroup.com/adoptadino/ and download a Certificate. Can select a dinosaur you want to save, upload your picture, fill in your name and there's your certificate. These certificates are now shared on all social media.
I think it would be funny and useful to upload certificates by characters from Terra Nova to our wiki's facebook. I have made a few:
I think any true Terra Nova fan knows why I made these character/dino pairs.
There are a lot more dinosaurs and characters left to pair. Please, create a few funny certificates yourself so they can be put on our Wiki's facebook.
If you’d like to, you can participate in a little Terra Nova game: find a video online which contains the clip of Taylor and Jim pictured here and then send the link to terra-nova-fan.tumblr.com via submit or ask (if you choose ask, you have to put brackets around the dots in the link, normal links cannot be sent that way).
If you suceed, you will be granted a request for a Terra Nova edit, gifs or one-shot fanfic (provided the request is within my ability). If you find the clip in more than one video, send all of them because you will get one request per video.
Except for the rumours that Taylor was to become crazy in season 2.
In the episode Versus at the end just before they cut out to Lucas we see Taylor standing with the fireworks going off and all of a sudden they start sounding like gunfire and perhaps even explosions, was that a hint at Taylor's growing madness?
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year / Happy Hanukkah!
The problem is that there are no dogs and cats in Terra Nova. I sure hope the humanity would save cats and dogs from dangers.
