Re: Badass Digest says new writers for Trek 3; studio aiming for the 5

I thought the writing was excellent. But I enjoy new as well. But I just want Trek XIII to be worthy of the 50th Anniversary. Big and epic.

Re: Badass Digest says new writers for Trek 3; studio aiming for the 5

I would love if the could come up with a story that could intersperse some TOS footage into the new film for the 50th anniversary. Even if it was just during the teaser setup at the beginning of the movie.

Totally fanwankish, but the only way I could see this happening would be a Spock/Spock mind meld. Have NO idea how to work that into a story in a sensible fashion, though (that's why I don't pretend I can write better movies than professionals )

As long as David S. Goyer stays away from Star Trek in any form, I'll be content.

They could use space shots of the Enterprise from TOS-R, modified to imply it was a small largely unmanned test ship for the class.

Come on, there's no need to name names. A vague reference to exploding heads ought to have been enough.

Yes, a cull that will become legend across the stars.

Re: Badass Digest says new writers for Trek 3; studio aiming for the 5

Yes 2016 is the 50th year since Star Trek debuted, but the 'first anniversary' of something is one year after the initial occurrence, so the first anniversary of Star Trek would have been one year after its debut, which would have been in 1967. Counting up 50 anniversaries from the first one in 1967 gives us 2017. This means that 2016 is the 50th year of Star Trek's existence, but only the 49th anniversary.

And would be absolutely dumb to ask for anyone else to a 3rd film when all involved did just fine on one and two. No disputing that.
I do dispute that. They did good dialogue, but can't plot worth a damn. They need at least one collaborator who has the ability to construct a plot.

Think of it as birthdays. Say you were born on September 8, 1966. You turn one year old on September 8, 1967, or the "first anniversary" of your birth. When you turn 50 on September 8, 1966, it will also mark the "50th anniversary" of your birth. Counting from 1967 to 2016 is 50, not 49 (jot it down or make a quick spreadsheet).

If the 2260s Prime Universe does appear in STIII, then let's not have any CGI hocus pocus or enhanced TOS clips. Let's have replica TOS sets and let Pine, Quinto, and the others play the characters in both universes. Talk about heads exploding.

The idea is to link to Sandra Bullock tumbling and hollering in space from the new GRAVITY trailer if you really want to visualize the cliche reaction.

Honestly though, as bad as TOS-R looks, I'm not over the moon about the current ILM work either. The gauziness of some shots is as obnoxious as the lens flares on the live-action, and especially out of place in space (just look at ANY of the GRAVITY trailers to see how to do all of this stuff AMAZINGLY RIGHT.)

THAT is absolutely brilliant. New cast in old sets. The WTF factor! TOS could cameo as "spirit guides" or whatever to guide this bunch toward set goal. GD I LOVE THIS!!!

Ya, but despite the fact that they are both space based films, they are stylistically completely different. I don't think it's fair to compare the two at all. There really is no right or wrong way to do it, within the context of a stylistic decision.
