Default The Worlds of the Federation

You know what I would like to see in this movie?
Federation Worlds
Federation Planets
Federation Cities.

In other movies even....*sigh* Starwars even
we see entire societies and cityscapes and interact with the enviroment.
Trek is so "set oriented. I want to see architecture and I wanna see Vulcan like it was in the Voyage Home...

I want to navigate and see the modern side of ...New York and Chicago and Houston. I want to see the surface of Andor and visit a mountain on Alpha Centauri. We've always been in orbit, always on a starship or a specifice enclosed locatioin on a planet...

But we neveer get to really interact with the civilization in OUTDOOR way...we don't travel about

That's something I want to change.

I definitely hear you there. Usually when action does take place on a planet, it is bland or there is no interaction with the environment (or some sort of thriving environment). It would totally be cool to see some more of this.

I liked the atmosphere on Earth in FC but we didn't get to see much of it.

I can asssume we'll see earth. But I would assume we'll not see a whole lot of other planet surfaces this outting. Trek 12 maybe???

Now that we can create anything with CGI, maybe some of your wishes will be granted!

I agree with you... as long as they feature other planetary sites as you mention, and avoid doing what TNG films did, where they shot on location to shoot on location, and every planet looked like Northern California or Thousand Oaks.

Though I wouldn't mind seeing a quick location shot at the infamous Vasquez Rocks again, just for fun. But would it be the same without the Gorn?

No, without the Gorn, it wouldn't Mission.
