Unfortunatley, being out of work since January, makes the $9.50/ticket a bit pricey.
I've only seen it once. and I am also out of work since January.

Well Do we not have this"Space the final frontier these are the voyages of the starship Enterprise... Cant have that without the ship but I to think we can have a story without the battles all the time but that is what sells tickets so..... Just keep the stories interesting

so I was wondering if a TREK sequel set entirely on a planet would work.
for example, the command crew have to deal with a Klingon threat to a pre-Warp world while trying to figure out just where the Enterprise has disappeared to.

could a movie without the ship work??
It could do without both.
But then there is a money issue.

Shoot, they could do it like the Borne Saga.
