It's really unfortunate that Captain Robau is dead. Were he alive, the trailer would be different.

SHERLOCK: I'm better.
ROBAU: Better at what?
SHERLOCK: Everything.
ROBAU: I can prove you wrong.
Please. NOT the Robau thread again!

Re: New Star Trek Into Darkness Teaser!

I think some Trek fans are just going to have to get used to the fact that it is 2013 not 1978! CGI and big action sequences are here to stay! Trek is changing, accept it!

Its funny, lots of Trekkies complain but the lack of total knowledge will get them going to see the movie despite their qualms, while the public at large will go see the movie regardless. Win-win.
I will not see it

I am not against ST looking like a big budget hollywood flic, but "seek out new civilizations" has been replaced by "seek out new special effects" "seek out new underwear" etc.

Trek is not changing, this is not trek. They could have had the decency to call it Battlestar Enterprise, so people would know that this travesty has nothing to do with the vision Gene Roddenberry had, en what gave a lot of people the name Trekkies.

THIS.

We also have to face the fact that trekkies moan and groan every chance they get. I well remember the bitching pre-TNG about everything under the sun, including the bald captain (as if Shatner was follicularly blessed, ever) and the idiot android

Not to mention the bitching post DS9 and VOY and ENT.

Re: New Star Trek Into Darkness Teaser!

First and foremost, when it's a Paramount issued movie or series with the name "Star Trek", guess what? It's Star Trek!

Beyond that, why is there all is holiness about the "vision" Gene Roddenberry had, like it's supposed to be this utopia that even he was pumped up to believe by sycophants and followers over time?

Star Trek's base was to show that we would still be around a few hundred years from now and going further out into the galaxy than anyone now can ever dream, encountering the peril and wonder of what's out there!

Jeez, the first friggin' pilot had Pike threatening to snap The Keepers' neck if he kept up the illusions! How peaceful and understanding was that?

You clearly haven't seen the new Battlestar Galactica. Trek couldn't be more different in tone.

This is Star Trek, just as the classic movies were, just as The Next Generation, Voyager, Deep Space Nine and even Enterprise were. All different spins on the same universe. What ever happened to IDIC? You know, that thing Gene Roddenberry came up with*








*to sell pendants through Lincoln Enterprises.

Looks like Trek to me. Do you want Star Trek: The Motionless Picture all over again?

I felt excitement and awe when watching the original series back in the 70s as a kid. This re-booted Star Trek has me feeling that way once more.

And it's your absolute right. By all means, don't go see a movie if it doesn't appeal to you...

I am not against ST looking like a big budget hollywood flic, but "seek out new civilizations" has been replaced by "seek out new special effects" "seek out new underwear" etc.
... BUT of course, whatever you may say about the movie after you've informed us that you don't even plan to see it is completely devoid of interest.

I think it's hard to take any defense of JJ Trek seriously when your avatar is the enterprise "splishing" into the water like this is something to celebrate.

Not as difficult as it is to take criticism of current Trek laced with an overly impressed sense of superiority simply by virtue of holding a critical view.

Then you and I clearly enjoy Star Trek for different reasons.

"Defense"? We enjoy it. We enjoy it. There's no need to defend anything.

Let's celebrate.

The Enterprise crashing into water is something new! I want to see something new and different!
