Wow...Saquist is sort of blowing my mind with his insight tonight... I tip my hat to you. We are not clones and differences are wonderful! and you are absolutely right that it is "erasure" which we fear.

True, but don't you (all) think a rather important lesson was learned from "the ENTERPRISE effect" of erasure? Different production team, different creative team, different purpose and vision... why would they repeat a clearly unsuccessful tactic?

My guess would be the opposite: if anything Abrams et al would be working to fit into existing TREK lore, history... especially as it pertains to TOS, because that is the era inspiring them in the first place. Not slavishly, of course. But not wrecklessly either.

This film doesn't have a 150-year gap of blank slate upon which to write their story like ENTERPRISE did -- we're talking characters, situations and history which the new TREK must, generally speaking, dovetail into just 10-15 years ahead this film. Other than both examples of storytelling taking place before TOS, I see very little similarity between them in design or intent.

Well this board does enbody IDIC. I allwats saw it that way.

I belive JJ will make it fit. Look at MI:III (also retooled from a 60's tv show.) it went back to the elements that made the first film work, without pretending he was Brian De Palma. He also kepe just a litle of John Woo's MI in the mix too while still making the film his.

I honestly can't think of anyone (with the possible exception of Nicholas Meyer) I'd trust more to capture the right feeling of a "cult" experience. Abrams understands fans who are hooked on a show and he's not going to disappoint us.

He did do a great job with MI:III. The past 2 films were a little dull, bit part 3 was full of action, great story, and a few good twists.

I liked MI really well too. But III did have the best of both worlds.

MI3 was awesome, even the first scene was insane.
casting Philip Seymour Hoffman was a good call for the villain.

Well said! I hadn't thought of it in those terms, but you're right. He gets the fan experience as much as he works from the creative side.

Good stuff, Eliza!

Best of Both Worlds you say? Hmmmmm subtle hint he was going to do the nextTrek Film? Anyway. I think that Abrams will do a great job. I mean I know the trailer is just the trailer, but I can't help but feel in my gut that this one is right....so much more right than ANY of the TNG films were.
