blah de blah de dah...
So where's the gay anti - hero or captain jack stand in? Are we going to have a sanitised production pandering to mid west christians (aka...the delusionals)? Why hasn't set design been given to the French, script to the British and lighting to the Germans?
Kirk smirk...
Jon Luc was a better captain....

This biased and predjudiced blather deserves no further comment. It has already collapsed in on itself.

I don't mind him saying that. It tells me that Star Trek has a future. That is an objective which we all can agree on, isn't it? I believe the source of disagreements lies within where we believe Star Trek's potential is.

The whole truth of the matter can be surmised to observing the franchise's history books--from Star Trek: Generations to present. It shows that if Star Trek sticks to the status quo going forward (the status quo being the format from projects past), public impressions of Star Trek will never change and the franchise will continue to dwindle as will public interest. It's one thing to be a true Trekkie, but it's another thing to be a loyal fan who wants Star Trek to thrive--even if it means that a few things have to change in order for it to do so.

To sum it up, what would be such a good thing about sticking to the old fans' format? Where would there be any benefit in watching something you love die--just it can be kep the same for the purpose of satisfying selfish druthers? I think it would be akin to the old adage of "beating a dead horse". I also think that adage can be applied to this whole arguement.

Exactly a point I've made many times... Enterprise started getting truly good when it was taken in the direction of actually being the prequel fans were led to expect. It died because that promise wasn't delivered on until it was already too late to save it.

Shatner isn't going to win new fans. I liked him don't get me wrong. He had a unique take to acting to put it lightly, however I don't think he's going to win any bonus points fot his movie. Most younger people I talk to cannot stand Shatner if not because of his whiny youtube videoes but for his ridiculous acting style. While this is not my own opinion of him, i can't help but think that he would have a slightly worse effect for the movie.

And seriously, he's not in it. RELAX go complain about the sets more.
