Anyone remember the IMAX Trek film which was planned a few years back?

Yeah, I remember the rumour that Colm Meany was going to be in it as O'Brien.

Well, I know how i'm gonna see this movie next year! IMAX all the way! It doesn't matter if there are any other features. You get a MUCH bigger screen, and way better sound than in a conventional theater. Definately a great way to welcome Star trek back to the BIG screen. This is also the first feature to do so in IMAX, which is cool as well.

Oh, I'm there. I'm sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo there. :drool:

I officially no longer care about the script, although I reserve the right to dissect anything that actually remains in my brain after one viewing of the film.

I can't remember where I read it, but I remember that Berman was going to gather several TNG guys (Frakes, Burton, and a couple of others) along with a couple of VOY people (Picardo and Wong?), and Frakes was going to direct it. It was going to be about 45 or 50 min. long, IIRC. Might've been fun.....
