Bring it! :-D
A teaser trailer for much-anticipated new Star Trek film has finally found its way onto the web. Directed by JJ Abrams - the man behind Lost and more recently, the mysterious and virally marketed Cloverfield - Star Trek XI will detail the early days of James T Kirk and his crew and will chronologically sit after the TV series …
...will the Klingons look like this time? Little Chinese/Mongoloid men from the original series or the beasts from TNG onwards.
Before you answer remember your ST history, and the inconsistent piffle that it is the Star Trek universe. WhyTF didn't they hire consistancy checkers?
I may watch this but the very, very first hint of 20th/21st century Political Correctness, inconsistancy or any un-Science Fiction "let's play baseball on the holodeck for this full episode" nonsense, I am am out of there faster than you can say "what a lot of bollocks"
***"and for a moment we forget that Simon Pegg couldn't even do an authentic American accent in Band of Brothers so how on Earth is he going to take on a thick Lowland Scottish accent..."***
And, for a moment, we forget that James Doohan's Scottish accent wasn't exactly authentic.
If Pegg's faux Scottish accent matches Doohan's faux Scottish then consistency is preserved......
Notice the lettering on the dish section, they've changed the lettering font.
Oh dear, a Thunderbirds (Jonathan Frakes dir.) remake here we come.
If they change the shape of the Enterprise to make it more 'noughties' - my letter of disgust goes straight off to Abrams!
Next we'll see certain 60s actor mimmicking the likes not seen since the god awful New-Voyages (google it) remakes. It will never look right having Kirk played by somebody else, even if done well - you'll see, it's just awkward and embarassing.
I for one have yet to be wow'd by all this.
Why wait till December to see new Startrek. Checkout this Startrek/
Starwars fan film me and a couple of mates made last year. It's certainly better than "Nemesis", although not as good as "Wrath of khan". We have Klingons in our film and they look like Beasts.
If you don't like Startrek, flame away and I'll get my coat and Beam my ass back to the mother ship.
It better not be in a space dock, or they have some 'splainin to do about those welding sparks falling, almost as if they're in a gravitational field.
And they're wearing space suits, but in a hard vacuum you wouldn't see welding sparks like that because there's no oxygen to cause the sparks to burn (oxidize).
But, even with an incorrect font (hey, at least it isn't Trajan) I'm sure I'll go see it. Hell, I paid to see Nemesis even after I'd been warned off.
Hello, it wasn't the Americans who made the only major expeditions into space, y'know?
"The eyes of the world now look into Space" (JFK)
"Godspeed, John Glenn"
"The Eagle has landed"
"Just one small step for man..."
Not even a beep from Sputnik, ffs. :rolleyes:
Sadly as always due to the sheer number of trekkies even a dog of a movie will boom at the box office and go onto sell a gazillion Dvd's , Blue crap or any other high def format you choose !
Ah I can just see Paris rolling her eyes at this turkey !
But when are we getting a "Lindsay Lohan" replacement icon ? :)
What the Trek franchise needs is some ONE at the helm who understands and loves it - and for more than the few minutes preceeding the press release announcing the hire.
Someone who can prove they've been a fan for at least 10 years or more would be a start.
Boutique directors who are going to try and turn Trek into something else are a terrible sign. Rehashing the past is foolish; it turns into an absolute nightmare of retconning and timeline management.
I suspect this film will wind up being hated even more than Star Trek Nemesis - and that's saying something.
They've now making us wait nearly a WHOLE DAMN YEAR for ST:-1
Although cannon states that this version of the ship was built at the San Fransisco yards, it's always been taken that the yard was in orbit in the nearest slot of the clarke belt, rather than actually on the ground.
On the plus side, this can't be any worse than Nemesis. (And since Terrorists are evil these days, there's no way they'd ever get a budget to make a DS9 movie!)
She plays Picard after an accident in the transporter involving some chronoton particals and a lot of Oestrogen.
Seriously, I will be watching this when it comes out, I can't believe Star Trek fans are fussing about continuity, its Sci Fi, there doesn't need to be continuity as everything can be explained by quantum singularities and parallel universes.
I mean why is it that in Undiscoverred Country it is the Excelsior that is tracking Gasious Anomolies at the start of the film and the Enterprise that is carrying the equipment to do so at the end?
The good news is that, with any luck at all, the movie will go soup to nuts without Braga and Berman ever having been in any way associated with it. That in and of itself raises it above the last few movies.
The bad news is that everybody knows you should never say "it can't possibly get any worse"; the Great Bird of the Galaxy shites mightily upon those who so presume.
This will probably be better than ST:TMP, possibly even as good as Generations. I'm not holding my breath for it to get any better than that - especially after seeing Cloverfield.
