Re: I hope for more traditional space battles

I think what we got in Trek 09 will continue, and that's a good thing. That first ten minutes grabbed the viewer by the lapels and never let go. That harrowing moment where the crewmember is sucked into the noiseless vacuum as the chaos of battle happened all around her was simply stunning. Nothing before in Trek even came close to that kind of visceral impact.

Of course, I'm also a strong proponent of the firefly/BSG style 'doco' combat footage. It just has an immediacy and impact that the more staid 'fixed camera angle' stuff of FC never accomplished.
Some say that daylight savings time was implemented to give him another hour of track time and that he goes through Pon Farr every 7 seconds.

All we know is, he's called The Stig.
