NeoCortex42: Jim from Saint Paul: bluorangefyre: Also, here's a good reason why it isn't Gary Mitchell:

The first movie had a series of comic book tie-ins released that were canonical to this timeline. One of those included Gary Mitchell. Yep, he still gained his god-like powers, and yep he was still killed. Supposedly it took place before the events of the reboot. I'm not exactly sure because I'm not that geeky to have actually got this, but I've heard about it.

Well it all depends on what they are counting as canon or not.

To use the Star Wars Expanded Universe as an example; All EU stuff is canon... till George Lucas said it wasn't. The movies trumped all.

They could easily say the same thing for the Star Trek Expanded Universe too.

Is there any history of non-television/film material being canon for Star Trek, aside from the 2009 film's comic prequel? Hell, even the animated series is barely considered canon.


Not that I know of.

gingerjet: Remember when Star Trek ... ya know... Trekked Stars?

Yes. It was generally boring, got the first series cancelled, and really sunk the second series for most of the first season or so. They they started focusing on characters and a consistent arcing plot and it gained more traction. By the time you got to the DS9, it was all about the people and the longer term plot, not about trekking from one system to the next to fight the weird villain/plot device of the week. And it was at the top of its popularity.

Why go back to the failed formula? I'm not saying there isn't good material from back in the earliest days, but ST no longer functions like The Twilight Zone - self contained exploratory episodes aren't of interest, even to most classic Trek fans. They want character driven plots and a story that survives the current episode/movie.

None of the Trek books have ever been considered canonical. The prequel comics were the first printed media to be considered canonical AFAIK.

Congrats, Abrams, your playing footsie with the fans made me apathetic to the franchise again. Stop it with all this 'what a tweest' B.S. and tell us a goddamn story already.


I'm glad I have something to disagree with in this post, otherwise I'd feel icky agreeing with Jim Tressel on anything!

I don't care who the villain is. The villain from the reboot was a nobody, a new character (who sucked, but that's just me being biatchy) with no ties to anything in the past. Maybe the new villain is similar. Maybe it's Gary Mitchell. Maybe it's Khan. Maybe it's actually Khan working for Harry Mudd. I don't farking care right now. What I want is a story that isn't designed to make you actively shut your brain off to oogle the pretty sparklies.

Speaking of Shatner, I'm really surprised TekWar hasn't gotten a big budget reboot of some sort. Or even a SyFy series treatment. It's been twenty years, give it another shot.

Um, he's going to, when you watch the movie. Do we really need another trailer that gives away every important plot point before you see the damn thing?

/If he's going to do the "BWWWAAAAMMM" in the trailer, I'm glad he's at least not giving away the whole plot. That's something I always liked about Abrams.

simplicimus: Wellon Dowd: simplicimus: Anyone remember the plot device that sent Enterprise across the barrier?

Mitchell was Kirk's best friend until he was changed by the barrier. I don't see how they can make him go bad in a different time and place without it seeming really forced. More importantly, why take characters from the alternative time line to some hardcore fans happy and then change their nature? Most of the people who are going to pay to see this movie have no idea who Gary Mitchell is. Use the alternative-timeline-reboot to explore new characters and new stories.

That episode made little sense anyway. The whole crew goes through the barrier and only 2 turn into demi-gods?


If I recall correctly, the barrier was put there to imprison a rather nasty entity by the Q Continuum, because Q screwed the f-ing pooch when he decided to toy with The Guardian (the "City on the Edge of Forever" portal thingy). When the Enterprise went through the barrier, Mitchell and the psychologist lady underwent something of psychic contamination, for lack of a better terminology, ultimately leading to their corruption, especially on Mitchell's part. This was directly due to characters' high ESP quotient, which the vast majority of humans did not share, and was largely a genetic quirk.

All in all, I'll give Abrams the benefit of the doubt on this one. It's looking like he's updated and expanded upon the original content of the source material in potentially interesting ways.

The trailer just came out like a week ago. Playing footsie with the fans =/= not revealing the entire plot at the same moment you unveil the movie, and the story will be told in the movie itself. The Marvel movies are coy about who the villains are and all that, do you instantly fly into a rage with all of those too? It really only takes you 4 days without a concrete "here is the entire cast list and plot points" leak to get apathetic? Sound like quite the fan.

Cumberbatch is probably playing Khan's right hand man, the guy he's yelling at in the picture up thread. I'll bet that it's not a redo of Wrath of Khan, just a redo of Space Seed. Perhaps Khan's ship is discovered and they're taken back to earth in custody of Starfleet, and Cumberbatch manages to escape somehow. Then he returns to rescue his "family", aka Khan and company. With Peter Weller probably playing Khan.

I've never read any of the books, because reading is for pussies and shiat.

It came to the point that the Q were nearly destroyed, because lulz.

TNG episodes? I don't think so, unless I'm forgetting something. The deepest look we got at the Continuum was when Corbin Bernson showed up or when that young Q girl discovered her powers.

Voyager had a whole story arc about the Continuum, including the civil war, but I still don't remember Zero and Q's fark-ups ever being mentioned. Then again, I've tried to forget a lot of what was shown in Voyager.

Cybernetic: justanothersumguy: You guys have serious memory issues....

"But with shooting finally completed and Karl Urban, who plays Bones in the Star Trek movies, doing press for his role in the upcoming Dredd, some real information might have leaked out at last."

"He's awesome, he's a great addition, and I think his Gary Mitchell is going to be exemplary."

Link to relevant article.

The same article also states that Roberto Orci included Gary Mitchell in a list of characters who would NOT be in the movie. So the producers are going out of their way to throw up smokescreens and encourage rabid speculation.

And it appears to be working.


Sooooooo, it's Khan??
 
2012-12-12 11:49:09 AM
It's not Khan. The villian in this is a former member of Starfleet with enhanced abilities, but Khan was never in Starfleet.

It's not Gary Mitchell. Mitchell had psychokinetic powers, not super strength. Mitchell was also killed off in the canon comic book in the second issue.

Garth of Izar is likely, or a new character.

That.

I am 6 episodes into Season 7 of Voygaer (having watched all of TOS, TNG and DS9 before it). Nothing of Q's past is mentioned. He tries to make the babbys with Janeway and eventually tries to get Janeway to watch his toddler later in this last season.

Nothing about his past though.

Since JJ said the main villain was "from cannon"...then John Harrison isn't his "real" name. Now, that may be a lie too, but stop with the "It's a new person, see?" argument.

Yeah, living up to me name, and you're right I'm mixing up Voyager with extra-cannon info that a very good friend mine and Trek nerd has yakked about in the past.

Thinking about the books a bit more, I have a great idea for a new television series: An animated anthology series based on the novels. One week is an episode based at Starfleet Academy. The next week adapts Imzadi. Then we get some post-finale DS9 story, or Section 31 tale. They can just cherry-pick the best books in each series and alternate from one series to another over the course of a season or two. Hell, they could probably still convince Shatner and Takei to reprise their roles for a few episodes doing voice work.

Perhaps Khan's ship is discovered and they're taken back to earth in custody of Starfleet, and Cumberbatch manages to escape somehow. Then he returns to rescue his "family", aka Khan and company. With Peter Weller probably playing Khan.

Joachim.

Maybe the makeup that gives Weller's part away will be his chest?

KPatrickGlover: NeoCortex42: KPatrickGlover: Doesn't have to be a former member of Starfleet, just because he's wearing a Starfleet uniform. Look at Space Seed. Khan was wearing a Starfleet uniform after he was brought aboard.

He was? I remember him just wearing casual attire.

Well, there ya go. I guess it's been too long since I've watched that episode. Time to rewatch it.

born_yesterday: I love it when he wakes up on the Enterprise for the first time, and holds a scalpel to McCoy's throat.

McCoy tells him to hold it two inches higher to be sure to hit the carotid artery.

/Or something like that
//Don't fark with Bones in his own Medlab.


And yes, that is one of McCoy's most badass moments in all of Trek.

Karl Urban is going to totally crush that scene when Khan shows up in the movie.

Electromax: /Sorry dudes, I tried watching first 2 seasons of TOS and TNG both and just couldnt do it
//The last movie was alright though


Even the most diehard trekkie will agree that the first two seasons of TNG are terrible with the exception of "Q Who" and "Measure of a Man." Season 3 is where it really begins.

I suppose that unless you lived through the "Best of Both Worlds" cliffhanger you'll never know just how huge it was at the time. At the time -- 1990 -- there was nothing on TV anywhere near as epic.

As a series as a whole, DS9 was the best. Though you can save yourself time and start it at the final episode of season 1.

I'd also add in Conspiracy and Elementary, Dear Data.

Every time I rewatch Conspiracy, I'm still surprised at the effects of the ending.
