Hey if that's how you want to spend your money go for it. That same money and effort could go a lot further towards a thoroughbred though.

Plus, that donkey is nearly twenty-five years old now. Kind of late in the day to try hitching it up to the cart again, so why not just put it out to pasture?

(Sorry. Couldn't resist running this metaphor into the ground.)

Re: internet campaign to restore star trek final frontier starts

We still seem to be circling around that whole "Some people don't want it to happen at all just because they don't want to see it" routine. Which doesn't really matter, as it will have no effect on whether or not it might happen some day...it just seems selfish is all.

Nah, we're just debating whether it's worth the effort, that's all. Which is what people do on message boards.

Again, what's the the point of raising the topic unless it's going to provoke a lively discussion?

Re-write the script, then it it has a chance.

Re-editing the movie IS re-writing the script. The editing process of any movie is a re-write.

TFF can be made better with editing, new FX, many minor changes that will make it better.
It may be 10 or 12 minutes shorter, but it would be better and an entertaining visit with the crew.

I doubt it would be as short as all that. Look at The Motion Picture Director's Edition. Not all that different in running time from the original. Just some scenes are made shorter, some moved around and other previously unfinished scenes, expanded upon and completed with new FX.

I'd love to see a more extensive battle sequence between the Enterprise and the Bird of Prey, while half a dozen fire-breathing, molten Rockmen break from under the ground to chase Kirk, Spock and McCoy back to the Galileo - and then attack the hull - before two of the triad are beamed up, leaving Kirk with no recourse but to climb away to escape them.

The problem is the film built to a climax, dependant on special effects they had no money left to give satisfactory scale to.
