If that's how it ends with the prologue, I think he should say it just as Kirk did. Not inflection-wise, but he should say '5 year mission' and he should say 'man'. It's a bit sexist but it would nicely tie into TOS. I mean if that's how it ends and you see them on the Enterprise about to embark on their first mission, provided that's not what the story of the movie is, then I think he should speak the exact same words Kirk spoke.

it should go:
YougKirk: "...let's see what she can do."

some visuals of the E, warping into space, then:
Nimoy:"Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise.
Her five-year mission-to seek out new life, and new civilizations.
To boldly go, where no man has gone before."

(^hope i got that right)

then it reads:
Star Trek(in TOS font)

I'd like something like that.

I think Livingston is a sexist and should be reprimanded. JK.

I do agree with you...I was looking for that at the end of the final episode of ENT, but it never came.

How about something brand new?
Something free of barriers and glass ceilings.
Something free of assumptions.
Something beyond the bounds of "canon" and whatnot.
I think we can all look forward to a NEW vision of the same old Trek future.

Remember: Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations.

Everything that could happen does, in an alternate and parallel (in a non-euclidean sense) universe. Remember the TNG Episode "Parallels" and its logical consequences.

I hope we get a taste of this in ST:XI!

I agree about the "man" thing....(and, unlike some here, my gender matches the gender of my handle and avatar). I thought it was oh, so forced feeling the first time I heard Picard do the "one" thing....though...it was sort of funny when Kirk did "man...or one" at the end of Undiscovered Country.

Jack, while I'm sure you were trying to be humorous, it was in bad taste. Try to find two threads here called "Gays in Star Trek"...everyone is a little touchy on this matter right now, as should be.

Again to the Admin...see the point behind a sticky?

Yeah...have to second Damage. If Takei weren't openly homosexual, that might have been funny, but since we all know he is gay, it's not (and, I'm sorry if that seems like a contradiction or stupid thing to say, but it is true....it's funny if your friend fumbles trying to catch a ball left handed and you say "go lefty!" but if he's really left handed, then it's an insult, right?)

I'm for the TOS intro being the end of the film. "Space, The final frontier......etc." It may seem to be waxing poetic, but that's not necessarily unheard of when embarking upon a great voyage of historic significance.

It's exactly how they tried to "hand off" the franchise to TNG...TNG just fumbled the ball...so, yeah...that's the way to go.
