Thanks. But I'm not really bothered to know either.

OMG! It's Ace Hunter!





Ace Hunter? Anyone?... MegaForce??....Anyone??

C'mon -- people from the 1980's can't forget Commander Ace Hunter (Barry Bostwick) from that fine 1982 film MegaForce,
which, by the way, costarred Persis Khambatta


Commander Ace Hunter:




Well, anyway, it's either Ace Hunter or Ra's al Ghul.

They write they want and try to make it fit trekkie perceptions of canon later, so I can buy a previously unknown Enterprise under Captain April.

Re: COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS 5-page preview

Here's a montage of that character's appearences over the years.

According to Bob Orci at Trekmovie this morning...

Which probably means that they've just Cochrane'd the character (i.e. totally changed his personality to fit their story) or maybe...

Or the Most Interesting Starship Captain In The World.



Something to contemplate the next time someone on the Internet waxes nostalgic about pre-CG movie effects.

Looking at that picture kind of reminds me of Stephen Lang as he appeared in Terra Nova.

I'm not buying the person being discussed in spoilers could be Cumberbatch's villain. In fact, even though I speculated weeks ago that it could be him, now I'm actually convinced it isn't because he's in the comic. Why in the world would such secretive people put the big reveal of the movie's villain in the comic book, and months before the movie is released to boot?
Some thoughts on this matter:
-It was in Countdown that we first learned of the destuction of Romulus.
-The gun Cumberbatch has in the trailer was labeled "April's gun" on the concept designs. Or do we still think that's what month it was designed in.

Maybe Cumberbatch isn't April, though at this point there's more evidence leaning in that direction than there is for him being Khan. But at the very least Robert April has something to do with the movie.

Re: COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS 5-page preview

While Enterprise was on television, some fans used to joke about that scene in The Motion Picture depicting previous ships with the name displayed on the Rec Deck. That the NX-01 must've done something really bad to have been removed from the line-up. Given the ship was Starfleet's first and historically important. The real life answer is that nobody knew there would be a prequel spin-off in 1979, let alone a couple decade's worth of Star Trek shows without Kirk and Spock.

I imagine they've gone for something like that, to explain why nobody ever mentions an Enterprise, which Robert April is the former Captain of.

And it's fortunate that it builds on the parallel universe aspect of Star Trek [2009], with fans considering April the forerunner to Pike and Kirk. It doesn't harm his status in the Prime Universe as Enterprise Captain in 2245 and perhaps fun to think of him as a guy who stayed on the rails thanks making different decisions. Obeying the Prime Directive or breaking it, if I'm reading those comic strip panels correctly.

Some very TOS like decor in Spock's bedroom. Including framed fabric wall decorations.

Cumberbatch is not April. There is no possibility.

Just like there's no possibility that it's not Khan?
