Post Hope for those with none. (Re: New E)

For those who need it:

I am a huge Batman fan, have been reading the comics for well over 15 years and have a giant collection of back issues from Kane to Miller to now current running issues. I own every movie and the collectors box of each so you can imagine how important Batman Begins was to me.

When I first saw the new Batmobile I didn't know what to think. Unlike the new Enterprise this thing was a complete redesign of the original. The only similarity it held was that it was black. (And it wasn't even the same black.) I was lost for words. How could Nolan do this?

Then I saw and heard (and felt) it in action. And I will never look at the original design in the same way. The tumbler is the meanest, most badass batmobile in the history of the Batman franchise.

Why this extended analogy??? Because I want everyone to have faith. Mine was shattered when I first saw the still image of the Tumbler. But I was wrong to judge.

This is what I want to inspire. Have faith in this: When you see the new Enterprise in action, and I can gaurantee that this Enterprise will deliver more action than ever, you will be blown away and you will rate it equal to, if not more highly than the original and beloved TOS Enterprise.

And its not even THAT different.

Do not boycott this movie on the grounds of one image. Please, have faith. Stay true to Trek.

Good God, if anyone boycotts a movie because they don't like how the spaceship looks, they need a hobby or something.

I don't like the new look, but c'mon guys, it's a friggin' movie, not religion!

As a big Batman Begins fan, I hear you. But Nolan said right at the start that it was a reboot and that it had no connection to the Burton / Schumacher movies. JJ and co. made it to sound like a prequel, which it is most obviously not. It's not like Nolan said that the Tumbler would eventually transform into Keaton's Batmobile.

Hold your tongue on that one. I bet there is a star trek religion out there. I will stack my account on it. If someone can prove to me that there isn't I will delete this account and leave forever.

Actually there is an organized religion based of the Klingon culture. There are rituals and rites performed and taught yearly at the Pantheo-con in San Jose California. All performers ar in full Klingon regalia. It is wonderful to watch!

I have been holding off on replying to this thread because I don't understand the title ... Hope for those with none (Re: New E) ... who has no hope and why? Only one picture of the Enterprise has been released, that I can tell. Why is there no hope? Why is the future of this entire movie -- whose trailer isn't even out yet -- being staked on a few pictures, a few clip descriptions and a couple of trailer descriptions? I don't understand.

Heh, you do have to admit that Star Trek does share some of the inconsistencies and contradictions of organized religion.
