2 Reasons why Trekkers & Trekkies need to Relax
 
Hey all!
I have noticed a whole lot of negativity going on after the release of the Trailer and Pics of the Enterprise. I want to give you two good reasons why everyone needs to relax and enjoy the movie!

1. The Nimoy Factor. Ok, we know he is in the film. We know he endorses Abram's vision for the movie. Remember, when the TOS Remastered project was announced, he was against it saying you shouldn't mess with a classic. Well, if he supports the new film it must be really good! AND did you see the latest version of the trailer with a Nemoy? This film will work!

2. The Shatner Factor. Ok, so he's not in the movie as far as we know. However, on the forum is a interview with him on his opinion of the Enterprise and Abram's vision. HE SAYS TO EMBRACE IT!!!

So let's do everyone a favor! Let's wait and watch the movie before we go all freakish on Abrams...BTW, its that freakish fanbased negativity that has landed Star Trek in the laughable fanboy catagory. Instead be glad that we have a film to go see!

Why else watch a movie but to enjoy and relax :D

Appeals to authority. I have one single better reason for fans to relax:

1. It Doesn't Matter. If Abrams succeeds with this, Star Trek going forward won't be the Star Trek that brought everyone here to talk about this project back when nobody knew anything about it.

That Star Trek is dead.

If you can learn to love the new one, great. If you can't, well... the one you loved this whole time has been gone awhile anyway. In the end, whether the new franchise sink or swim, the classic franchise is dead.

Nothing more to worry about.

No. 2 doesn't work for me. I don't care what this guy thinks ;)

This sounds like the old TOS vs TNG wars :001_rolleyes: ... why can't some people accept that everyone likes something different about Trek and that we have a lot of Trek for different tastes? If one does not like a certain movie or show one does not have to watch it, simple as that.
It is not Trek or no Trek, the world is not black or white.

Because people are afraid of change. It scares them. They like their Trek pre packaged and safe because that's what they're used to.
