That would surely doom the franchise because then only gays would go see it or gays and people who see nothing wrong with it, the straight people would not go see it and there are more of them than gays I'd say. Star Trek New Voyages went down the tubes big time when they introduced their gay person, lots of people quit watching it. The same would happen here.
Have you any evidence to support these assertions?
Well, as stated and proven by a poster already, hundreds or more quit watching New Voyages.
Indeed? Hundreds... or more. And stated and proven... when? By whom? Perhaps you'd be so kind as to illuminate this proof by providing a link.

This sounds like projecting.

So, the overwhelming majority of people. Bigots won't go see it? I can live with that.

Straight people will got to see it. Only bigots won't. As I said, I can live with that.

As I understand there was a user or a poster on here last year that got booted off because of his postings about gay but before that happened I was told he had quite a following.

The Star Trek franchise could do without those fuckwits anyway.

Re: Star Trek III - The [Speculation Begins] (Spoilers)

the women in new trek are already controversial because critics have accused them of doing nothing.

if trek was too add a gay character his sexuality should be irrelevant. the character should have a relevant part to the plot of the film, he should not be there just for the sake of having a gay guy on trek.

Re: Star Trek III - The [Speculation Begins] (Spoilers)

^^^ Agreed. It is also entirely possible, and could be argued, that Trek has had many gay characters over the years - just that nobody has ever felt the need to draw attention to it, as that particular demographic has been seamlessly interwoven into Federation society along with all other races, faiths and gender types, as well it should be.

It's clearly no longer a "thing" to talk about in the 23rd/24th Centuries. It would only be a "thing" to needlessly (and anachronistically) placate some members of a 21st century audience what the rest of us already know - that the Federation is a truly identity-blind society and accepts all for who they are without standing up on a bully pulpit and crowing to themselves how evolved, accepting and tolerant they have become (Picard's various self-aggrandizing lectures notwithstanding).

There's plenty of males doing nothing on the show, too. Plus I think the women of DS9, Janeway, Seven and T'Pol certainly did compensate for that.

I meant the woman of STiD. I personally don't think the backlash is fair. uhura was not completely useless as for carol ...its just a shame that the strip scene has greatly overshadowed her character.

Re: Star Trek III - The [Speculation Begins] (Spoilers)

Um... not sure if this is the correct thread to be posting this in (I couldn't find any Trek 3 news threads, so apologies if there was somewhere):

Source:
http://buzzhub.wordpress.com/2013/07...nto-exclusive/


At a special public interview at the 2013 Galway Film Fleadh on Friday, July 12, Zachary Quinto discussed his illustrious career and his roles in Star Trek, Heroes and American Horror Story. BuzzHub had a front-row seat, and witnessed first hand what Quinto had to say about his current and future projects, including some revealing and intriguing information! When asked about his role as Spock in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek films, Quinto told the audience:
Star Trek 3 should be filming, I suppose, next year. It’s going to be made a lot quicker than the last one. That’s the plan, although nothing is confirmed yet.
He was also asked if he would want to reunite with Abrams and appear in Star Wars Episode VII, and he said he would not, without giving a particular reason.
At one point in the interview, Quinto mentioned that J.J. Abrams was planning to direct Star Trek 3, which is another surprising fact, but once again, he did not elaborate.

If that's accurate, Abrams is going to have an extremely busy couple of years ahead of him.

Re: Star Trek III - The [Speculation Begins] (Spoilers)

I hope he can handle the juggling of two major sci-if film franchises simultaneusly. If true, it may very well be the first time this has ever been attempted.

Why would he have to juggle two? One releases in 2015, the other in 2016. Wars will probably film early next year and Trek either late in 2014 or early 2015.

He'll certainly be working post-production on one while filming the other. That'll be crazy.

I believe that the writers have stated that the seeds for the third movie were laid down in STID. So it's probable that the next movie will involve war with the Klingons. I also have a bad feeling that there will be a Pon Farr subplot for Spock.

I hope the next Trek movie villain is Harlen Ellison.
