So, the main villain is a giant fish!

Didn't see that one coming... :P

Only thing is where do you keep the franchise going when each successive movie features an order of magnitude greater number of spectacular explosions and space battles? I mean I love me some space battles but two movies from now it's going to have to start with the Enterprise exploding and end with the universe exploding. HEY time to jump to a DIFFERENT timeline...

Needs more speaking by Benedict Cumberbatch.


/but it was really damn cool

This one disappointed me.  It's the first one I've seen that actually gives credence to the 'generic action sci-fi masquerading as Star Trek' theory.

Near as I can tell its all coming down to a disagreement on the prime directive. The prequel comics and the opening surely indicate that as the major conflict.

You know what I'd like to see?

A Star Trek movie that uses true science fiction to explore humanity's sense of wonder at the infinite. It could have a real philosophical puzzler with a Rod Serling-esque twist at the end, and spark profound contemplation on life, reality, and the nature of the human condition. I miss when Star Trek meant discovery and exploration of the unknown and unexplained.

But hey.... gotta sell movie tickets or something.

At the end it kinda looks like they unattached the two parts of the ship and crash landed the saucer part. Original.

Yeah, but you know what?  TMP was farking boring.  Until the reboot, IV was still the highest grossing ST movie to date, and that was without adjusting for inflation.

Actually, though it was never used, Constitution-class ships supposedly have the ability to separate the secondary hull in the event of an emergency.  They can't be reattached without a Starbase doing the work, but if that actually happens, it wouldn't be without precedent.

And one of the earlier trailers quite clearly showed Enterprise shot to hell and crashing.

I like the Planet of the Apes method. Blow up the entire planet in part two, then still have three more sequels.

That was the first movie and the fifth movie and people hated them. The only successful Trek movies are about a psychotic dude usually out for revenge.

Considering that Star Trek was masquerading as sci-fi - I see this as a step up.

Uh, it was fiction. It didn't explore much of anything. It's a story. On TV. With actors and sets and bad special effects.

Last one was a good popcorn movie. This one looks like it will be a lot of fun too. I like the reboot thing. It's like when a comic gets a new lease on life when a new team is brought in like when Alan Moore took over Swamp Thing back in the 80s. Is this new tack turning a venerated franchise towards generic sci-fi flavored action flicks rather than trying anything particularly new or profound in the field of SF proper? There's merit to that argument I suppose but I'll probably still be there the week this comes out butt in chair, popcorn at the ready.

Mugato: That was the first movie and the fifth movie and people hated them


The first movie was a paper-thin TOS plot stretched out for two hours. The problem wasn't the idea, the problem was the pacing. The fifth movie was just awful for a number of dumb reasons (Uhuru strip tease/God/bad SFX, etc.)

Hard sci fi is attempted every now and then with mixed acclaim. The most recent one I remember was Moon. I don't mind action movies or even Star Trek movies where the action drives the plot. I just hope the new one has a little more substance to it and is more cohesive than the last one.

Hard sci-fi is difficult in movies because you simply can't do it right in 120 pages.

It was built in the middle of the canyons of Iowa, they'll be able to lift it out of the gravity well no problem.

Hey, at least I don't think we're months away from some kind of sci-fi utopia because some smelly nerds put a glue gun on a stepper motor. I'd rather be a pedantic dumbass than an uncritical wanker who jumps on every new bandwagon no matter how foolish and delusional.

Although the movie looks good, I have to say the whole idea of hiding the Enterprise under water seems a little fishy to me.

Who thinks that? ...no one. That's just stupid. You are inventing an imaginary foe for your neurosis who only exists in your head, and then you are fighting him right here on Fark so you can prove to everyone how sane you are.
