Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Considering the trend these films are going, the Borg would go on a revenge against the Federation, Kirk would be busted down and promoted up, and the Enterprise would be smashed up again. These films are becoming as predictable as the Bond films.

Oddly enough, the last time we saw the Borg was ten years ago on Enterprise.
Yeah but they've also been in video games, etc.

I did. It doesn't matter what was done "in addition". Main engineering was no longer a 'brewery'.

This is nitpicking to an extreme, IMO.
I don't see it as nitpicking. It's a statement of fact. They did film there and you can clearly see that location in the film. Yes, the warp core is a different place but it's still there.
But it WAS nitpicking when you corrected me. I consider it as such.

what is with you guys and your fascination with the borg that they need to be a bad guy in these movies?
It's more a guess of what the writers will go for - given how highly unoriginal they are

Not just smashed, the Enterprise blows up in Star Trek III.

Well I don't see how it can be nitpicking to say that your statement is flat out wrong, but I won't lose sleep over it.

Ok, let me check that rather than work from memory :

STID engineering was not filmed at the "brewery". It was filmed at NIF.
Since it WAS filmed, partially, at the brewery (engineering is more than just the warp core), then you were wrong. Unless you consider the rest of the machinery not engineering, in which case we're just clashing over definitions.

Not just smashed, the Enterprise blows up in Star Trek III.
TMP: Enterprise unscathed.
TWOK: heavily damaged.
TSFS: destroyed.
TVH: (only a cameo at the end).
TTF: no damage.
TUC: heavily damaged.
GEN: Enterprise destroyed.
FC: quite a bit of internal redecoration.
INS: no damage.
NEM: heavily damaged.

Nine movies with an Enterprise before ST09 and STID. Two are destroyed; three take a lot of battle damage; one is significantly damaged internally the Borg. Being on an Enterprise in the movies is like taking a chance on a Carnival cruise ship, for crying out loud.

Well, I was going to go in the direction of responding, "I'd LOVE to see the Enterprise get smashed in the next movie!" Scotty and it would share something green. The Enterprise, really warped, would get pulled over by the Warp Patrol, and blow a 0.09 from its bussards. But I went the other way. Sorry, old sport.
