mjbok: In TOS (and TNG plus movies) how many times did Spock lose his shiat? The only time I can remember was on the planet with the flowers and that was a result of the spores influencing him.
sinner3k: Is ANYONE actually surprised that J.J. Abrams left a property before it was complete? I don't think he's stuck with a single series he created for more than two seasons. I think he has some strange type of directorial ADD.
mjbok: This is what Spock being logical in the new version is:
StrangeQ: dogboy360: /BTW, ST:TOS nerds had NASA name a shuttle "Enterprise". What has SW got?Eh, you might want to check where that "Enterprise" name came from.
slayer199: lizyrd: TOS Kirk came up fast and became captain young, through heroics and being in the right place at the right time. Reboot Kirk ended up being promoted from cadet to captain for no reason other than Kirk has to be the captain, to hell with any type of progressive rank structure. And it was just through shiatty writing that it turned out that way.Well, he was promoted to Acting 2nd in command by Captain Pike (one could argue, that Pike recognized early on that Kirk had ability and sought to challenge him). He was promoted to acting Captain after Spock resigned his commission. Because he was successful and earned the respect of his crew, one could argue that the command decided to keep him in place.Hell, if you go back to TNG (and yes, I realize that TNG was after TOS) when Q described how Picard seized the moments that made his career in Tapestry, one could argue that that this was more of a policy than an aberration.There's something in movies and novels called suspension of disbelief...and one could make a plausible enough of a case to suspend disbelief.
tallguywithglasseson: Didn't care for Abrams' take on Star Trek. Take existing franchise, make some winks to the original material, turn into dumb action movie.
Zarquon's Flat Tire: I still want them to give Star Wars to Guillermo del Toro.
ZeroCorpse: I wonder if anyone will ever write and film any new science fiction stories?
