Well, they were all set in the same universe in the same timeline, so I don't even know if crossover is the right term (I know TNG/DS9 and TNG/Voyager both crossed over in actual episodes, I can't recall if there was ever a DS9/Voyager crossover).  A DS9 movie would have been great within a couple of years after DS9 ending, but by the time they got around to it, what they actually did was for the best.

The first Star Trek reboot was solid, I enjoyed it quite a bit.  I haven't seen the second reboot movie yet, but I plan on it.

I'd love to see another TV series, preferably set post DS9/Voyager instead of something in the TOS world, which would be handy for the folks making the movies as well, much less need to try to sync things up.

Don't ask the fans where to take a series; look at farking Marvel.  They're fans, god love them, and only a few standouts would have the talent or imagination to revitalize a franchise.  They started to let the fanboys drive the bus in comics and we got shiat like Quesada and Bendis in charge and their ultimate crap fap fest, 'One More Day.'

Sometimes to innovate or tell a new story, you have to actually do something new.This makes fans collectively shiat themselves.  Thus Marvel has stagnated in regular cycles and New 52 over at DC is starting shank fests in alleys.  Piss the little farkers off, it's good for everyone.

As a star trek fan, let me just say that die hard fans are stupid and you should never listen to them.
 
2013-06-19 09:12:14 AM
The new movies are fine- better than most of the movies made with the original cast. The fans will always want the same thing- exactly what they're used to. Change that formula and they whine and cry. I wasn't happy when they made "Elementary" almost nothing like the original stories, but I'm fine with other people liking it- which is why I'm tired of the 'real fans' of Star Trek telling me why I shouldn't like the new movies. Just get over it, already.
 
2013-06-19 09:12:24 AM
So wait. In 2003, when most people were getting bored to death with Star Trek and only the harcdore/old-school/been-watching-sinceTOS people were devoutly watching it (much less going to websites about it), they did a poll of those people and it matches what those SAME people generally say today?!

HOLY CRAP. I R SHOCKED. WHAT RELVELATION THIS IS!

The first reboot has a shiate story, but was saved because it also had the theme of the band getting together, the crew being introduced and coming together as a team, and the actors were likable... that's what saved the first movie but you can't do that again.

The new movie is just a generic action movie with star trek veneer pasted on.

I don't understand how that universe is still there.  It should've been destroyed (or at least the alpha quadrant) because of the 2009 Star Trek movie.  Here is the reason.  The red matter creates a singularity that either opens a temporal portal or a portal to an alternate/parallel universe.  Things that enter the portal arrive at an earlier time compared other items entering the same portal.  So according to Star Trek (2009), Spock Prime drops the red matter which creates the singularity that swallows up the rogue supernova (don't even get me started on that).  Before he can escape, Nero shows up and they both get caught in the singularity with Nero's ship getting swallowed up before Spock's ship.  Nero shows up in the past/parallel universe before Spock does.  Therefore, the rogue supernova should have shown up even earlier than Nero and have destroyed all the planets, etc. in that area (and perhaps continue onward to destroy the rest of the alpha quadrant).

Point.  They're in some sort of middle zone of weird reboot/alternate universe, trying to find something that works.  I still think they should have nutted up and killed Kirk this last time, honestly.  Chris Pine isn't bad, but he was very much outclassed by every other actor on the set.

yeah, was going to say the early 2000's were the low point of the entire star trek franchise - the tv shows were boring and the movies were crap, only the most hardcore of fans cared

i credit star wars prequels bombing for rejuvinating mainstream interest in mainstream sci-fi that wasn't about jedis or the force but also lacked all the techno-scifi-babble trek had turned into - hence the reboot
 
2013-06-19 09:18:24 AM
Wow, all the teeth gnashing from the old Star Trek TOS people about the new movies is impressive.  At this rate, their dentures will be worn down to a nub in no time...

Mostly less. Will hang with the series a bit longer, see what happens.
If they have Alice Eve and a larger role for Simon Pegg, I'd be ok with that.
Preppy Kirk and cloned Sock just don't seem all that interesting.
Luckily, I don't mind seeing a mediocre movie every now and then.

They should have done a series revolving around the occupation of Cardassia. They could use the post-WWII occupation of Germany as a historical model and get the Federation and Romulans back on cold war mode. Plus... that would mean Garak could be a part of the series.
 
2013-06-19 09:23:24 AM
You know what? I liked the new Star Trek. Much better than the first IMO.

They managed to have a fresh take on Kahn, and it actually felt like Star Trek, unlike the first one. Yes there was some stupid stuff in it, but every move has stupid stuff. Star Trek was never exactly high art.

Somebody does need to ground JJ from using the lens flare effect in Premier though. shiat is getting out of control.

I wouldn't mind seeing Q in an Abrams Trek movie, though. I realize his character is a century or 2 away from the current storyline being used, and I know how uncomfortable J.J. Abrams is using time travel as an arbitrary plot device...look, a polar bear!

Rebooting a cult series to re-play old characters is never a good idea. Starting a new story in the same universe is the better way to go. A Star Trek Academy movie or something like that, with new characters, would keep the cult people happy in seeing the universe they are happy with, yet allow them to open up options that appeal to the ma$$e$.

That's it!  All those lens flares were actually Q's that were observing the new Kirk and crew.

Star Trek fans are the reason the series died. They aren't enough of them to sustain a franchise in today's market and they whine insistently about things no one cares about. I'm glad they reboot the series and ignored all the whining trekkies. Big surprise the reboot grossed more (yes adjusted for inflation) than any of the other movies.
