Re: If you don't think Nemesis is better than Star trek 2009....

If some of you are convinced that star trek was only made to make money, and not introduce anything to the viewer, what are you on this forum to discuss?

Because it was a great TV show before it became a religion.

I don't like the new film, but even understand that it's popularity is a good thing for the franchise. It's a two-hour commercial for what came before.

Countless things, among which are: characters, the actors, the plots, SFX, modelmaking, fanfics, speculation, humor, the history of the show, the future of the show, the real science, the fake science....

Because it raises awareness of the franchise outside of the rather insular fan base.

To be entertained. Don't know about you but it's the reason I watch TV.

Because it raises awareness of the franchise outside of the rather insular fan base.
And how is that good for the franchise, other than financial gain? What is the meaningful correlative that makes 'the franchise' important to the masses?

Because people might look into the past shows and films because of the film. Because new movies will be made.

We love Star Trek. Making Star Trek popular again means we get more Star Trek.

Star Trek is not intended for anything other than entertainment. I don't care if people make money from it or not. If I get more to watch, I win.

These things can be had in numerous ways, you can go to a general movie forum for this, a general music forum for this, a general entertainment forum for this. Why star trek?

If this is your reasoning, why not watch anything else that is generally considered 'entertaining'? Why star trek? I don't get it. Especially if its 'insular' fan base annoys most of you.
