I star trek into darkness.

Now it's a verb.
A Star Beyond Time (Ilia's Theme) lyrics:

There's a star beyond time,
Floating in space,
Waiting for you and me.

Though we're planets apart,
Love is a bridge,
Joining our galaxies.

Come with me,
We'll star trek the unknown,
Where no one's ever flown,
To one star that we'll make our own.

Where the universe ends,
Our world begins,
Somewhere beyond the dawn.


Note: In the Shaun Cassidy version, he replaces "star trek" with "conquer", but on other compilations the unnamed female vocalist sings the above lyrics.

I love that track of music with all my heart.

Yes...even the Shaun Cassidy version is tolerable. "Ilia's Theme" is one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever composed for a movie. Period.

Other way around, since the Cassidy version with "conquer" is the original. And the other version is gibberish.

Anybody else see "The Continuing Mission" at the top of that poster and immediately think, "Damn, THAT would have been a great title!" like I did?

Makes it sound like more of the same. Which I don't think the studio wants to convey...

Re: The First Poster for INTO DARKNESS Has Just Been Revealed...

I don't believe any "mission" has yet been stated in the Nuverse.

It is still reeling from Nero's incursion. I would expect at least a trilogy worth of readjustment to occur before anyone starts thinking about a five year mission.

Simon Pegg has become the first cast member to comment on the new movie title by tweeting (@simonpegg) that "Star Trek" is a verb, not a noun. He boldly confirms that the title is "Star Trek Into Darkness".
Except it's still a noun, unless that's interpreted as an imperative: "Star, trek into darkness!" It's just a noun that has a prepositional phrase added to it.
Or maybe "Star Trek" is the noun, both words, as in, "And you're all astronauts on some kind of star trek..."

Well, the female singer's version was the only one I knew for decades. It appeared on several albums. That's the version I transcribed for a bbs many years ago. I only learned of the Shaun Cassidy version a few years ago, have only heard it twice, and I wasn't sure which one came first.

I also assumed that Roddenberry wouldn't have approved "conquer" in the lyrics.

As for posters, anyone seen this one?

Out of curiousity, is that really the proper way of labeling these images? They are not by Therin of Andor if you took it from another webpage.

Re: The First Poster for INTO DARKNESS Has Just Been Revealed...

Is this new one confirmed as another fan-made piece of art? Something created to help promote Diamond ST products?

The new one's a fan-made poster too. On the left you can see a watermark that says "CRQSF DEVIANTART.COM," which is the artist's signature. Here's the original on the artist's deviantART page.

They've used just about all of the monologue for episode or movie titles at some point.

Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Star Ship Enterprise. It's continuing mission: To explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilisations. To boldly go where no one has gone before.

Things used in titles highlighted. "The Continuing Mission" is just about the only part they haven't used that would make a decent titles. Star Trek: New Life or Star Trek: New Civilisations doesn't quite have the same ring to it...

^There was an ENT episode called "Civilization."

I think Star Trek: To Boldly Go could work as a title. And New Life could be cool in the right context. (My cancelled ST novel set in the Abramsverse was called Seek a Newer World, which is a line from Tennyson's "Ulysses" but was meant to evoke the opening monologue.)

I like that quite a bit, and honestly, I think I like the title "Into Darkness" all by itself with the "Star Trek" in the front.

I think they should've just called it Into Darkness while attaching Trek imagery.
