So basically, "casual fans" have opinions that are as varied as more hardcore fans. Newsflash!

P.S. This isn't aimed at either of you as a snark, just that the two extremes make a nice comparison.
My point in posting.

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

I just finished watching it and I gave it a D+
Biggest reason I didn't care for it was it is barely recognizable (IMO) to Star Trek, every time I saw something new and "improved" I just cringed.
From the military dress uniforms with hats no less..really?
To the communicators and even the new boots, ughh what were they?

I guess my big thing is I never liked the Abrams style Trek, he always seems to try to copy and then one up everything that already happened in the previous series.

The other thing I don't like is the over the top-ness, don't get me wrong, I love a good action movie but you can't throw a huge budget at something and expect it to be good.


I could go on and on but TBH I don't feel like typing that much.

Pike had a similar hat in "The Cage"/"The Minagerie" CLICK! And did the grey uniforms really look any more militaristic than the ones seen in Wrath of Khan and beyond?

I think he has the best avatar on the forum .

That being said, I didn't really mind the costumes in Star Trek Into Darkness, except for Khan's cliched leather trenchcoat look.

I dressed like that when I was 14 and obsessed with The Matrix.

Which means, coming from 1996, Khan was ahead of the fashion of his time

Thank you.

I guess I didn't like them because they looked very Nazi German-esk.

Based upon the hat created for Pike in "The Cage". You can see it sitting on his desk in the first pilot.

According to the Federation Reference Series, the hat went with the dress uniform seen during Pike's Orion fantasy:

The 'Into Darkness' dress uniforms reminded me of the 'Forbidden Planet' uniforms more than anything else.

Forbidden Planet, the landing party uniforms in "The Cage".

I't funny how a few people are trying to convince me of the whole hat thing that was a flash on the screen of an original un-aired pilot that no one in the show ever actually wore.

Not trying to convince you of anything. Pointing out that they had uniform hats. It's fun trivia, and fact.

OK, but they did away with various things from the un-aired pilot, that was obviously one of them as we never saw it again.

I'm just pointing out that I'm being sent links to a picture of a hat on a table, It's not going to change my opinion that I suddenly like it.
