gnosis301: You guessed it, Frank Stallone.
peterthx: Hate hate hate these STAR TREK fan productions.So obsessed with the cheesy look of the 60s show, and the acting is painfully bad. Just people doing impressions of the original cast.Guys, it isn't the 1960s anymore. When presented with an opportunity to start the show again (the original 1970s PHASE II on the aborted Paramount Network), Roddenberry wanted to change EVERYTHING. New sets, new costumes, a different look for the ship. Most of the designs morphed into what was seen in STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE, which as we all can see looks NOTHING like the original series, except for the original cast (who looked a lot older).Hey fanboys, how about trying to make something set in the second 5-year mission of the Enterprise, after the crew reunited for TMP (and before they split up again pre-WRATH OF KHAN)?/but that might take a little more money and creativity to pull off
Wellon Dowd: I don't recall Orions ever being identified as a race. They are a criminal syndicate and they traffic in green slave girls of some race, but that is all we know about them. Or am I forgetting something?

ristst: And NO they aren't professional actors....they're regular folks who have great passion for TOS.
NeoCortex42: And even if that wasn't the case, TOS wasn't exactly a bastion of Oscar-worthy performances itself. The set department probably had to rebuild the whole set after each take with how much that scenery was chewed in some episodes.
bhcompy: So Edward Elric/Ikkaku Madarame is playing Captain Kirk? I love it.
Any Pie Left: "Continues" really "gets" the old series, in just about every detail, down tot he lighting an aspect ratio, Grant's the weakest link as Sulu: he can't act for beans, but that was "stunt casting". Even so, the show looks and feels "right".
NeoCortex42: He does a great job, once you get past the familiarity of the voice.
NeoCortex42: Grant is certainly no Takei. Then again, who is? The rest of the cast does pretty good overall, though.
Bslim: Star Trek is dead.
Mikey1969: Whether this is any good or not, it's just cool to see that Lou Ferrigno is still getting work. I like seeing Lou randomly pop up in movies here and there. Never heard a bad thing about the man.

Blathering Idjut: That's because there are literally THOUSANDS of regular folks that attended each performance of Trek in the Park. When I say "regular" I mean it. There were little to know folks with costumes, just normal people of all ages who love classic Trek, cheesiness and all.So you are really, REALLY out of touch about what kind of Trek folks like, bud.
peterthx: /not stuck in the past either
Confabulat: peterthx: /not stuck in the past eitherooo, you think they should do retro 70s Trek instead of retro 60s Trek! You aren't stuck in the past at all!
peterthx: Hate hate hate these STAR TREK fan productions.So obsessed with the cheesy look of the 60s show, and the acting is painfully bad. Just people doing impressions of the original cast.Yeah, but its just as good as the original!

Nonrepeating Rotating Binary: peterthx: Buncha potheads & hipsters in the park. Thousands showed up to Grateful Dead concerts too. Color me impressed. Not.Really not sure at what point you became convinced that anyone beyond you gives a shiat what you think.
peterthx: /ahh, the fanboy butthurt is strong
Confabulat: peterthx: /ahh, the fanboy butthurt is strongYou've got the wrong internet cliche there. You're the one insisting we stop liking what you don't like!
peterthx: No, because it's fanboys frothing at the mouth
peterthx: No, because it's fanboys frothing at the mouth if someone dares not like what they do.
