I remember the film being announced or teased originally back in November 2006, which is already over 5 years since the initial "buzz" began. As of May 2013 it'll be 6 1/2 years, and we're still talking about the first film now so say, 2016? but wait! that's when the third film in the contracted series will be in cinema's.

I guess by 2020 it'll die down. Of course by then, someone will have pitched or already be airing a new show or something based on them or a new reboot, hmm.

Did you know, the reason fans hate the 2009 movie so much is because it went back and erased all their VHS tapes, laserdiscs, DVDs, Blu-rays, books, and memories? As long as they fight to get the new movie removed from the public eye, there's still a chance the gods would return the original copies to one lucky fan with encyclopedic knowledge of Trek canon. So they fight valiantly, for if they fail, Star Trek won't be seen as it was on The Original Series. Lords of Kobol, no. Instead, it will be forever imagined as an action adventure story set in space, where young, good looking leads, and their crew wear colorful costumes and use semi-plausible technology to explore the galaxy in mighty starships.

My GOD what hath this movie wrought?!

Hmm, but my copies haven't disappeared, are you saying liking the new movie gives my collection immunity from being taken?

Re: The Improving the JJprise thread

"Gentlemen, gentlemen, you can't fight in here, this is the War Room!"

Seriously, though. I grew up with two antenna TVs and one VCR in a house with four people, so when I didn't have access to those I read the Blish novelizations. I've been a Trekkie since before I can remember clearly. I have strong opinions about Trek. I care a lot about it. I liked Trek XI, and the JJPrise, but will admit both have their flaws(She's rather awkward from some angles and I don't like the torpedo deck, it interrupts the flow of the design. Felt the same way about the torpedo deck on the TMP ship.) I know other people don't share this opinion, from both sides, either having a higher or lower opinion.

However, what I do have a lower opinion of is other Trek fans, fans of an enlightened and optimistic view of the future, whining and sniping at each other and in general acting like a bunch of whiny brats. Some of you seriously disliked the film, we get it. Harping on it over and over again doesn't make you better, and it's not going to suddenly make people change their minds about their own opinions at this point. The movie's been out for a couple of years now, I'd say their opinions have well and truly formed. At this point, you're just trolling for an argument, and I probably shouldn't be feeding the parasprites but I'm just sick of it.

The same goes for fans of the film, in a way. Express your like of it. Heck, I do. However, some people dislike it. They've made up their minds, and we can't change that. A little debate is healthy, but arguing isn't going to help anything, for either side. If you can't say anything nice, or at least non-argumentative, don't say anything. I guarantee, it will make any thread 20% cooler.

Yes. See, if you liked the movie before it premiered (which made you a fake Trek "fan"), your copies were safe (As if you watch them, Yoda lover). By not liking the movie beforehand, a True Trek Fan™ (In the name of the Spock, the Bones, and the Holy Shat) saw his collection totally wiped out. Only through apoplectic denials and hateful screeds can the True Trek Fan™ (In the name of the Spock, the Bones, and the Holy Shat) get his collection restored by the Gods of Roddenberry, and watch as the 2009 abomination's history is rewritten from a successful, popular movie, to the failure that they wanted it to be.

Maybe the DVD's and other stuff really do disappear.

You should have hated the movie when you had the chance, before it premiered. Now you see what happens when you're willing to accept that it's just a movie. This isn't a movie, it's war! It's the holy faithful against the people who think it's just a fun diversion.

Now you know better, and knowing is half the battle! The other half? Crying. Lots of crying.

Pfft! Who said I hated it? Me likey. Best thing to happen to Trek in decades.

This. Sorry for the cut-off post earlier. Two errant taps on my iPod Touch screen and it was up. All I hope for is that people can simply agree to disagree and just be one big happy fandom.

Paramount had what's supposedly its first float in the Pasadena Rose Bowl Parade this year. It featured the Enterprise:

Oh, I thought it featured the starship Enterprise. It was just JJ's pos.
That is the starship Enterprise, now, and easily recognized as such by anyone who'd see the float; there's no reason in the world the studio that owns Star Trek should choose an old design to promote their product. Disney occasionally uses Steamboat Willie art for nostalgic purposes, but the official version of Mickey for publicity and merchandising is the current one. Now, the Enterprise may not be as big a deal to Paramount as Mickey Mouse is to Disney, but it must be getting close.

It's really pretty awesome that Trek has become that, and the float looks damned good.
