I don't understand the hate for the new Trek. You'd think that JJ Abrams built a starship and used it to slingshot around the sun, traveling to 1965 where he blinded Gene Rodenberry with lens flare then proceeded to sodomize him to death, erasing the original series from existence.

I can enjoy both, thanks to a transporter accident that split me into two separate people.

The new Star Trek was better than any Star Trek movie since First Contact.

Although I enjoyed it, I felt that there was one major flaw. The young man that they had playing Sulu was obviously heterosexual. I think that since Georgi Takei came out before this movie did, they should have payed him respect by casting a homosexual Asian American actor to portray Mr. Sulu.

The fact that Sulu was played by a homosexual actor in the original television series is a great testament to how accepting the future will be. I'm sure that many homosexual children that wanted to be astronauts found him to be a great role model. They let him pilot the Federation's flagship, even though he probably slept with the younger, more impressionable male crewmen and more than likely had some sort of space AIDS.

He overcame adversity and that is what made him a great crew member, if not the greatest, that served on the Enterprise. I think Mr. Abrams needs to take a good, hard look at the character of Sulu before the second movie comes out and he betrays even more fans.

"So light takes about 8 minutes to reach the Earth from the Sun, but your rocket launcher here can send a rocket from the Earth to the Sun in about 8 seconds. Is that right?"

"This isn't Earth and that isn't the sun."

"Right, so we're on some planet that's an 8 second rocket ride from the star it orbits."

"Yes."

"Yeah, this is definitely better than the new Star Trek movie."

My big problem with the Trek reboot was the Enterprise interiors. Big sets--with no crew (engineering). Little sets--packed with crew (bridge). And the sewage treatment plant that was engineering--all for one joke? Bad choice, low replay value.

The whole 'alternate reality' thing, a few minor changes in the script, blow up some other planet that is not Vulcan, and suddenly it can fit with cannon. Why is 'working with cannon' so hard for creative teams? Cannon and continuity IS BRANDING! How hard is that to understand? Maintaining the brand sells more copies of older properties-Paramount should want that.

Blowing up cannon/continuity/branding is dangerous, and can kill a potential franchise (looking at YOU Dark Shadows).

Oh, and all Star Trek time travel that does not involve Joan Collins dying is bad Star Trek.

MNSHO.

Meanwhile, the rest of us will have fun watching the new film. So... you win, I guess.

thornhill: I disagree that Star Trek was really bad at science.


Dilithium crystals? Really? You just go with that, huh. Red matter is magic but dilithium crystals, why they're all over the galaxy, everyone knows that.

Hey how about we modulate the shields' polarity to deflect the enemy's photon array! That's science(-y sounding)!

Star Trek has about as much to do with real science as Han Solo yammering about parsecs.

Erix: Sure, Search for Spock was ok, but First Contact was fine if you took out the borg queen. At least they actually acknowledged the continuity of the show by having Picard act upon his prior experience with the borg.


First Contact was the only decent TNG movie.

That awkward period when you know a film will have a sequel but you don't know it's name.

IS IT? IS IT REALLY AWKWARD? DOES IT MAKE YOU UNCOMFORTABLE AND FIDGETY WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW THE NAME OF A MOVIE THAT DOESN'T EXIST YET, YOU MEME-SPEWING DIMWITTED PLEONASTIC GARBAGE-SPEWING HEMHORROID ON THE HAIRY ASS OF SOCIETY?

Bhruic: My perception of the previous movie is that it was a good movie, but bad Star Trek. There have been plenty of bad movies, and some of those have also been bad Star Trek, so yeah, this was a step up. But the amount of shoehorning they had to pull of to try and get all of the original characters back together on the Enterprise under the new universe scenario was just completely unbelievable (yes, it often happens that a cadet on academic probation gets promoted directly to starship captain). If you're going in just looking to be entertained, the movie works (although even then the Romulan side of the plotline was pretty weak), but if you're going in expecting decent Star Trek, well, not so much.


He was actually promoted to first officer, then exiled, then captain (but again, still acting captain), then captain.

Please do Star Trek fans a favor, and stop trying to decide that we're supposed to feel betrayed by how a character is portrayed between incarnations. Thats for us to decide, not you.

As a long-time Star Trek fan, I can tell you that I really liked the Abrams movie. It was MUCH better than I was expecting.


That's not going to stop the haters who were mad that the new movie was popular.
