Re: Do we even want another Star Trek movie?

I don't. I find a tv show to be much more satisfying in the story telling department. and that's what I like about trek. The old movies were just a nice bonus because it was a continuation of those stories, albeit on a much larger production budget.

Re: Do we even want another Star Trek movie?

I think the future of Star Trek is in all of you here--with fan fic.

The future may be in documentaries.

PLANET OF THE TITANS would probably have been pretty dismal. But a documentary would be outstanding, with some of the folks here who can digitally manipulate some select images, fans to do a ship, and movie makers talking up the background--would make the unseen/un-made movie cooler than it ever could have been.

Sort of like certain ship designs that look great in your head, but less so on paper.

This is sage wisdom.

While all the series have had a certain percentage of bad episodes, the incident of poor "episodes" with the movies seem to be much higher. While which movies are bad varies from fan to fan, there seem to be a consensus that a third to a half of the movies are bad.

Also, with four years of a TV/cable series we get over eighty hours of Trek, while with the current movies we're getting only about two hours of Trek in the same period of time.

TV/cable offers much more opportunities for character development, introduction of new characters, and complex story lines.

Re: Do we even want another Star Trek movie?

A new movie would be great. A new series would be even greater.

Yes, I think many of us can agree that there is a bit more time for more varied storytelling in an episodic television show of Star Trek. When one goes to the movies, one wants bang for their buck, and the Star Trek movies deliver in that area (most of the time). But, for more interpersonal stories, and more stories about exploration and heady ideals, a television series (especially an arc-based episodic series) would be best. (Personal opinions only)

Re: Do we even want another Star Trek movie?

No, I don't want any more Trek movies. The people lording over Trek have shown us since First Contact that they can't be trusted with films, or even TV series for that matter. So, I also don't want new TV series.

The current Hollywood environment is not inducive to good Trek.

Re: Do we even want another Star Trek movie?

The answer to this question is simple… of course we do.

Trek was dead after Enterprise. Dead. That show was much better than people give it credit for even now (certainly its final two seasons), but the model was done on TV at that time. Insurrection & Nemesis were early 90's-esque movies that felt fatigued in a changing era. Trek--like Bond, like Doctor Who--needed the Abrams rebirth to survive. Like it or not, it kept Trek alive.

While I feel Star Trek was a cracking movie that got almost everything right, Into Darkness is of course flawed. I enjoyed it hugely, still do, but the more you watch the more the problems become apparent; but there are plenty of earlier Trek films with many flaws, and they were often followed by much stronger delights. Rob Orci will, I suspect, follow up with a very Trek-style film for the 50th anniversary.

And remember, if these movies keep making money & keep Trek in the public eye, the more chance we have of that new TV show that keeps being rumoured in the ether.

Well the whole point of being tragic is doing bad stuff at some point.
But the character has to be somewhat likable at some point as well. There was nothing likable about Anakin Skywalker in Attack of the Clones or Revenge of the Sith.
I agree.
I didn't like any of them much.
While Anakin looked good he just didn't have any charisma. And I don't mind a 'bad boy'. Honestly I wanted to like Luke's father. I tried to like Luke's father.
While I didn't hate him I just thought meh. I thought meh about everyone in SW 1, 2, 3. Even C3PO and R2D2.

I don't even think that Hayden Christensen ever passed himself off as Darth Vader - even an artistically placed facial scar couldn't help that. Annie should've been tough looking and you're right ... charasmatic, as well.

I would like to see the big, epic tales of nuTOS remain on the big screen while ensemble cast stories remain on TV as miniseries or weekly series.
