Are These The Masterminds Behind Star Trek And Transformers?

Before Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman were writing Star Trek, Fringe, Transformers and every other major scifi project, they worked on a little show called Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. Here's a look inside their creative process, from a Hercules episode called "Yes, Virginia, There Is A Hercules" (which they wrote.) Orci (played by Paul Glover) and Kurtzman (played by Ted Raimi) share bunk beds and grapple with their tyrannical boss (Bruce Campbell). They even whistle the Hercules theme while they pee. But it's not all fun and games in TV-land, as they discover when the pitch a spin-off called Chimpules: The Legendary Monkey.
