I really hope this is some false rumor J.J. Abrams put out or something but it seems like it's real. If so that's too bad. An entire reinvented universe and they choose Khan?

Hollywood really IS out of ideas.

On the bright side, they also are reporting Nimoy's coming back.

Confabulat: On the bright side, they also are reporting Nimoy's coming back.


Prediction: Alpha Spock tells Beta Spock & nuKirk about Khan. They hurry out on a quick mission, blow the Botany Bay out of the sky without a word, then head back to Earth to get on with the main plot.

That actually got me to click a Breitbart link. Like all the others, I see no source, and so I will assume it was totally pulled out of someone's ass.

Now that would be fun.

But I would think Alpha Spock would be on the phone with those guys all the time. "No, Captain, avoid the Nazi planet, I looked silly there. And that planet over there is run by children, I think one of them fell in love with you, just avoid that one too. And whatever you do, stay away from those brainless hot women who stole my brai-- Captain, where are you going? Captain?"

And Captain, at some point you will go back in time and meet a woman who looks like Joan Collins. Kill her.

Eh, Star Trek is dead, anyway.

Let 'em keep getting hacks to rape the corpse and talentless pretty boys to play on the apple store sets.

Thankfully, there's still at least one good sci-fi series out there where they don't have to jettison everything and "reimagine the brand" because of uncreative hack writers and producers...

Approximately once per season in the Russell T. Davies era, IIRC.

That is a weak argument. The acting in the first Trek was pretty awesome. McCoy especially nailed his part. "Talentless pretty boys" makes you sound petty and silly.

Yes, the acting on the original series was pretty awesome. I doubt any pathetic modern day stand-ins obscured by lens flare in their generic space movie which Paramount shoehorned Kirk, Spock, and McCoy into could ever top the real Star Trek.

Oh please, your bitterness that it's not the Trek you wanted has made you dumb. Name one actor who failed at their part in the first modern Trek movie (since you insist that I be pedantic).

Not mocking time travel... mocking a pointless reboot in a universe that could have kept on going forward. There's always another Next Generation.

But, no, pretty boys pretending to be Kirk, Spock, and McCoy. THAT'S THE TICKET!

It's not the Trek anyone should have wanted. But, you poor, deluded fanboys accepted it. So don't go biatching when things like the Khan announcement come out.

You wanted shiat shoveled into your faces, you're getting it,. Enjoy it. Savor the taste.

Quinto is a perfect Spock. That dumbass from that horrible Superhero show no one liked after one season.

And every time they kill the Doctor they reboot the show.


But they don't feel the need to tell you after every reboot that we're following the adventures of the First Doctor again, now do they? Things keep moving forward.

Deluded fanboys? Please. I grew up on REAL Star Trek. REAL Star Trek is Kirk, Spock, and McCoy. All the rest are weak imitations.

But go on, tell us all about the awesome Section 9 movie you wrote in mom's basement when you were 15 and how you KNEW it would break box office records.

Again, tell me which actors failed, how Simon Pegg and Karl Urban are talentless pretty boys, and why they suck.

Right now you just sound like a whiny geek crybaby.

I'm sorry... you seem to like being shovled shiat by Hollywood. You complain in your OP that Hollywood is out of ideas, then you defend the best example of what is wrong with Hollywood. And when you can't come up with a good defense for yet another pointless reboot that didn't need to happen, you have to resort to namecalling.

If you want to keep making sure we have creatively bankrupt reboots every five years by giving them your money, I suppose that is your prerogative. But don't come off saying "Hollywood really IS out of ideas." then defend their creative bankruptcy in the next breath. It's beneath you.

I shall now bid you "good day", sir.

No, I was complaining that I think Khan is a very poor choice for a second movie to a pretty terrific reboot of Star Trek, which was pretty much destroyed in the 90s by the terrible no-talent hacks Berman & Braga, who you seem to worship as the true guardians of all things Trek.

I'm disappointed they are going in that direction after such a good start. However, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and hope they do something cool with it. I'll watch and I'll stay optimistic given how good the last one was.

But then you're the same comic book nerd who always complains about how much comic books suck right?

Right.

At least I see the new argument put forth by the Trekkies still upset that people liked the new Star Trek: "You can't complain about Khan without admitting we were right all along! The first movie sucked! Pretty boys! Whaa! Don't you complain about anything ever again!"

So mature, Trekkies.

My interest in seeing this big budget fan fiction is absolutely zero. I've read slash fan-fiction written by middle aged lesbians that was better than J.J. Abrams pile of crap. The only reason anyone gave that movie any attention at all was because it had the Star Trek franchise hung on it. If it was called Space Battle and told the story of John R. Kruze, a brash Space Squadron cadet who becomes Captain of the Star Cruiser Victory the movie would have been universally panned as crap. It was only because it was able to exploit the names Kirk, Star Trek, and USS Enterprise that people are willing to give that steaming pile of dung a passing grade.
