TNG, DS9...

Actually, I tend to think being a major hit points to a film's mediocrity. Let's face it though, we shouldn't pretend this new Trek movie is anything too exciting. I liked it a lot, and the reboot...

You're absolutely wrong here. Go look up the syndication ratings numbers for TNG back at its height--the franchise saturated the market because it was very mainstream for a while. Trek as an entity...

As my excitement over the new Trek film built, I rewatched a lot of the 'classics' from the series's I own, and the films--and based...

Whatever happens with the sequel, I'm at least encouraged to see that this board brings in the highest common denominator.

Since watching the movie a second time, I'm having trouble thinking of Countdown as canon--it's still possible, but the problem is in the time travel mechanics and a potentially huge paradox.

The wife and me made it out for a second showing tonight and were STUNNED, to walk into a 3/4 full theater. It was the first showing of the day (4:10) and the parking lot has been packed all night. ...

But the reboot doesn't have a television series to provide that balance--we've got to get this angle of Trek into the new universe. I liked the new movie and it's action-oriented, space opera focus...

For starters, Khan was developed in "Space Seed." That's what I was getting at with the very long post I made a page or two ago--this Trek doesn't have the mythos to build on. And yes, Kirk is a...

This, on the other hand, I take major issue with. Nero was about as thought provoking as a professional wrestler.

Um, I thought the bug was clearly the same thing, or at least related, to the thing Khan used in TWOK--the designs are very similar, and the description of what they do was almost identical.

The movie doesn't say anything about money, but the spirit is the same--he may not have needed to go into Starfleet for money, but he needed to in order to have a place to live.
