I really wouldn't call this TOS. TNS -- The New Series -- maybe. But it's not the original.

Indeed, I'd completely agree. It's a new version of the old, but the Original Series is a distinct and unique creature, which this new movie is not a part of. James Bond got rebooted with Casino Royale, but keeping Dame Judi Dench as M to keep some of the character continuity; just as Star Trek's getting the chance to start over, but with Leonard Nimoy to connect the original to the new.

Saint and BigD, I could not agree more.

I dont normally get into these types of disagreements but you are talking about putting three seasons or 40 + years of history into 2 hrs worth of footage. That means of course that they can only scratch the surface of what ST is, but I believe that what we have been seeing that this will be a good continuation / start of the history we love and know.

Um, no. It looked like a Starship-class vessel. Anything else is just personal opinion or personal bias.

I like both ships. No need to put one down over the other.

'Nuff said.

The show actually had some surprisingly good production values at the time as far as its starship settings went, Josh. But you're young, and used to today's production techniques, especially in the realm of bigger budgets and CGI VFX. And although I'm not as old as some folks here, I'm sure that for those folks who actually got to see this show first run, Star Trek looked as good to them back in the day as Star Wars, Firefly or Battlestar Galactica looks to us today. (Food 4 think.)

GREAT response....everybody is going to have their favorites.

Unfortunately, this is just the beginning of what we're going to see on this board everytime some new plot line or picture gets released.

Just wait until some bits of canon are thrown out the window in the new movie (and from the spoilers I read, it sounds like there are a couple)...then we'll have an uprising!

I said on another thread that I had to look at it a couple of times...and the more I look at it the more I like it. Something about it reminds me of the "C".

I also remember not liking the first stillshot I saw of the "E", but once I saw her in action, and different angles, I really liked it alot.

I did say that everyone has their favorites, and to each their own, but how many of you are going to keep comparing the women (or men if applicable) you're dating to your first love? All this does is keep you trapped in th past and not open to the possiblities that are out there.

I'm not saying that. TWOK and First Contact are the two best ST movies and you really don't have to know anything about the show to enjoy it. Both those movies were basically "sequels"(or repercussions of the events) of what happened on T.V.

well, the movie is for a new audience, so you can't have everything. i think the design looks good.
