I don't suppose there was a sequel called Pantagruel?

Re: Rumor: Trek 2013 tidbit

I adore the Johnny Lightning Trek ships. The separating Generations Enterprise D is on my desk right now. I loved the D-7 too, but I yanked out the distracting "battle damage." Hopefully these Hot Wheels variety are of the same quality.

PS. Good looking out, Lloyd Dobler. These rumors of any sort are a scarcity! Very encouraging to hear we get NuKlingons and their glorious war fleet.

A digression: the cover art for a GARGANTUA novelization I edited years ago was actually based on packaging for a toy line that never happened!

For those that don't recall, GARGANTUA was a GODZILLA knockoff Fox aired back around the time of the big GODZILLA remake. Yes, there was a novelization, written (under a pseudonym) by our own Keith DeCandido!

It seemed like a good idea at the time . . .
Sorry for going off topic...I love Godzilla and the Gargantuas...can you tell? What was the name of the Novilization? I would love to read it. Shoot me a PM if you don't want to continue derailing the thread further.
The book was titled GARGANTUA and it had nothing to with the big shaggy creatures from the Japanese films. It was a tv-movie starring Adam Baldwin of all people that aired on Fox the week the GODZILLA remake opened.

The author was "K. Robert Andreassi."
Thanks for the clarification.

But we already knew about the Klingons. There's a couple of other things we already know as well.

The Excesior?? Isnt that, like, 30 years early in-universe?
No, I think the collector series probably includes ships from multiple eras of Trek. Since two of the ships mentioned in that sentence are separately specified as being from the new 2013 movie, that probably means the Excelsior, which doesn't get that specification, is not from the new movie but is the familiar one from ST III/VI.
That's how I interpreted it too.

Whichever, but only if he carries that annoying swagger stick.

Will these Hot Wheels ships be around the same size as the ones released during the last movie?

Just curious.....
IIRC, those were also sold as "1/50 scale" (or 1:50) so these will probably be about the same size.

http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Hot_Wheels
Hot Wheels claim of of 1:50 Scale can not be right though. For instance, the Polar Lights/Round 2 Enterprise is 1/350 scale is something like 32" long. That means at 1:50 Scale the Enterprise-A would be about 21 feet long. There's no way these are 1/50.

No, but everyone should probably have remembered that already, from the last time around.

Per Memory Alpha, referring to the 2009 collection:
Each ship is said to be in 1:50 scale (in reference to collector automobile scales), measures from ten to seventeen centimeters in length, and is packaged with an adjustable plastic stand.
I'd expect the new batch will likely be in the same size range as these were, regardless of the scale figures cited.

I'm betting that Joseph Gatt is a Klingon.
I had him down for nuKhan myself. Providing the movie's cliffhanger ending.

A Hunt for the Botany Bay. Feds and Klingons. One out to secure a threat, based on info Spock provided. The other searching for a cure to a disease ravaging the Empire.

A third party, Peter Weller's corporation, with him having his own agenda for getting to Khan first.


** ...and then I woke up, realising I'm not actually the one writing the screenplay!

I for one, hope it's 1:50 scale. A 21 ft long Enterprise in my backyard. Badass...

I get 19 feet. 947/50 = 18.94.

How about a 19-foot Enterprise motorboat? You could ride around in the lake pretending to be travelling through space.

Re: Rumor: Trek 2013 tidbit

They might be referring to the Armstrong type starship USS. Excelsior NCC-1729? Which was mention in the book, but not in the movie itself. Also there suppose to be a model of the ship itself. It was one the ships that Nero destroyed.

Weller is not Captain Styles; he's Commodore Decker of the Constellation.

Cumberbatch is Trelane, pulling a Q and masquerading as a human but unlike Q, doing it covertly to study humanity.
