If Kirk says "I was born in Iowa", that is now canon (part of the history of the show) from there on in. They can't turn round and say he was born in calcutta.
Yes, but what if Kirk was lying when he said he was born in Iowa?

Or he simply forgot?....
...
...It's not so simple, is it?
Point taken.
In The Deadly Years, it could have just been senility. In fact I think the exact dialogue was something like:

"I was born in IowI WANT GREEN JELLO!"

And in STIV:TVH, I'm sure he told Dr. Gillian that only because he wanted to impress her in hopes of getting some nookie: "Hey baby; I'm from Iowa"

Re: The Official Welcome Thread

Y'know...I'm posting this here cause I didn't want to start a whole new thread to ask a dumbish question.
Is Trek XI a reboot or not?
I can't seem to clarify this for myself, even given the huge amounts of stuff I've read.
Is it taking place strictly in the Trek Universe as we know it, like just a prequel to TOS?
Thanks, and sorry.

From what Orci said over at Donmurphy.net where he has his ask Robert Orci thread... It's a Hybrid Reboot/prequel. They want to keep enough trek to keep it trek, but they want it to be able to stand as it's own seperate incarnation too.....

Re: The Official Welcome Thread

I'm making a belated intro... I think I just hit my 50th post... tho to many it may seem like 50 million. :P

I really like DS9, the Jem'Hadar are awesome... and I really can't stop talking about them. I tried! I really did, for a whole year or two once I did pretty good! Then Fearful Symmetry came out... sorry everyone!!

On topic... I have mixed feelings about ST11... it'll be nice to see an ST film on the big screen, maybe seen revitalized interest if they handle it right. But there is all that other stuff, the messages back and forth between Shatner and Abrams etc. etc., and worry about changing canon, and unpleasantness... I just hope by the end its something we aren't sick of by time it comes out and that it works for all the different types of fans.

Re: The Official Welcome Thread

Hi everyone!
Frequent lurker, first-time poster...
My name is Jorge, I'm a 41 year-male from Portugal (my nickname denotes my year of birth, of course).
I'm too young to have witnessed the beginning of this enduring sci-fi saga, but I'm old enough to remember that distant 1978 when TOS premiered on portuguese TV. I've became an addict ever since!
Yes, it took Kirk & Co. ten years to reach these shores (I know we live in the farthest reaches of charted space but still...)!
Just a warning: my favorite ST movie is TMP!

Hello everyone.

Long time Trek fan here, definitely excited about the new movie, and I hope it gets Trek going again.

Favorite show has always been DS9, followed by TNG. TOS comes in third, sorry...

Been lurking for a few days now, figured I'd sign up.

Re: The Official Welcome Thread

there is one thing i want to ask, and this being a busy board, seems like the right place.

The new movie is being down by someone new to the franchise. but what deal has he actually signed? is the agreement for the director/writers/actors strictly a one film deal, or have they signed to something like a trilogy

As I understand it it, the deal for some parties involved (director/writers/main cast, etc.) does allow for additional movies, if this one proves successful. I don't think that a trilogy is anything like cast in stone at this point, though.

Re: The Official Welcome Thread

thanks for that.

does it worry you that if this film doent live up to expectations, it could kill the whole franchise off? there is a lot riding on this film, and i am concerened that if this film flops, it could be the last star trek ever.

the reason it worries me is because i dont really hear many people praising abrahams efforts, and it doesnt seem that people have a lot of confidence in him doing a good job

There's a lot riding on it for those who have invested time and money in its production, no question, but Star Trek will still exist whether this movie succeeds or not. I further suspect that, even if this movie were to bomb at the box office and ruin the collective careers of all involved, it wouldn't automatically mean the end of Star Trek. (I hesitate to use the term "franchise", since it has nearly as many incompatible meanings to as many different people as does the term "reboot", which I have previously criticized as being utterly useless.)

If you read the various topics in this forum alone, I think you'll find all opinions quite well-represented, from those praising Abrams & Co. and expressing confidence that they'll make a good movie to those who think he's the worst thing which could ever happen to Trek... and every conceivable shading in between.

Re: The Official Welcome Thread

I've been here for a few years, but I saw the trailer yesterday and am really close to adding this forum as one of my favorites. I guess in that sense, I am coming because of the movie. I've really remained neutral on the whole thing (I think the only news I've gotten was: the Cast, a picture of the ship, some Alien dude played by Bana, and now the trailers. As for nuts and bolts, I barely know what the cast looks like and I don't even know whose playing McCoy). I think that's kinda good in that I've tried to avoid spoilers and take this from a common moviegoer point of view.

Heya, tomalak.

McCoy is played by Karl Urban, whom you may also have seen as Eomer in the Lord of the Rings movies a few years back. He's done some other things, as well.

Hey M'Sharak,

Very cool. He was also in Bourne Supremacy too, even though I don't remember his character that much. I do remember him some from LOTR though.
