ds615: Star Trek 09 was a just a bad movie. Trek fan or not, comparing it to the show or not, it just plain sucked.
Unless you're a drooling director fan boy anyway.

The Hobbit was a crappy book, and there's not a damn thing in it that would make a good movie.
Unless you're a drooling director fan boy anyway.

So it's lose/lose or win/win depending on who you are.

I'll see The Hobbit because I want to see what 48 fps looks like. I'll probably check out somewhere between the third and fourth ending though,

First nine minutes? So you will see the camera slowly, slowly panning over a lush hillside and then... record scratch...coming soon

/as opposed to the ad preview which will show the all the surprises, boss monsters and enough footage to talk like you're seen the movie at the water cooler after it comes out.

RevRaven: another series (idealy set Post DS9/Voyager so we can finally see what happened in the aftermath of the friggin' Dominion War) would be fanfarkingtastic.


Go play Star Trek Online. It isn't perfect but for the foreseeable future it is the only new canon story material you are getting in the original timeline. The new season just started. The most recent events are the Romulans finally colonizing a new homeworld. The game is free to play so you have nothing to lose.

alienated: Mentat: I'm not sure the Star Trek and LotR fanbases overlap.

Wait, your serious ? Let me laugh harder jpeg

Seriously- I am not just a Tolkien geek. I so heart Trek stuff. And Star Wars stuff, and B5, Space: Above and Beyond, Xanth, Ringworld... I could go on for a long time.


This. People claiming that fantasy and sci-fi audiences don't overlap know nothing about nerds.

Also: Time to rip on JJ.

The reboot was neat, but it wasn't Star Trek. I don't wanna have to type out my whole rant again (I guess I should save the damn thing to a text file), but it was Star Trek for people who don't like Star Trek. If you took the Trek trappings out, it could have been any generic sci-fi action movie. I'm not shiatting on sci-fi action flicks, nor having action in a Star Trek movie, but it wasn't really Star Trek.

It was more akin to Star Wars actually, structurally anyways. Which is fine...for a Star Wars movie. But as a Star Trek movie (and a reboot! A reboot of the most internally cohesive fictional universe ever written, for Christ's sake. What, too constipated creatively to do something new in a 500+ year timeline? Couldn't do another Next Generation new crew/ship idea? Nooo, had to go back to the TOS in the 60s), it was very much Star Trek in name only.

Star Trek works best as a TV series as Great Janitor said above. The movies are fun (even the bad ones can be, what parts don't hurt your brain), and the reboot is okay but by no means anything great. But another series (idealy set Post DS9/Voyager so we can finally see what happened in the aftermath of the friggin' Dominion War) would be fanfarkingtastic. I vaguely remember, in one of the threads about the various pitches made by people for a new series, that word was no new TV series until JJ's films run their course, so 2016-2017 or so.

/Redesign of the Enterprise was awful
//Bridge looked like it was designed by Apple
///Casting was pretty damn good though
\\\Destroying Romulus and discarding the real timeline was a mistake of easy script writing versus actually trying
\\I'm hoping they'll tie everything together in the third one and reset or merge JJ-reality with the real timeline
\And Shatner better have a goddamn cameo. What woulda been his cameo in the reboot would have been farking awesome. And let him do the "Space, the Final Frontier" narration please

Gyrfalcon: I find myself completely disinterested in "The Hobbit" for some reason. I'm exactly meh about the whole thing. Same way about Star Trek, although I found the reboot/rework of the universe quite fascinating (to coin a phrase).

...does this mean I'm finally getting old?


Not old. Just dead inside.
