Re: what was in your mind for each film before you saw/knew anything?

I only got into Star trek around 1997.

Insurrection: no idea. I was 13

Nemesis: The trailer was really outstanding. 2002 me loved the movie, but I do acknowledge now that it's really not that great. It has its moments, though.

Star Trek (2009): pretty much read everything I could obsessively. I was there at 7 pm on Thursday at an IMAX that was two hours away at the time. Not disappointed.

Star Trek Into Darkness: spoiler free, I was expecting about the same as the 2009 film, which is what I got.

Re: what was in your mind for each film before you saw/knew anything?

ST:III - One of the things I really liked about TWOK was the new character of Lt. Saavik. I thought that the Vulcan/Romulan mix was very well done. She had the veneer of Vulcan logic, but a number of times in the film you could see the emotional undercurrents. I thought she had great potential, and I was hoping for more character development in TSFS.

What we got was an emotionally neutered full-Vulcan, with no personality to speak of. I don't know if this was the fault of the script or the acting, but none the less, the damage was done.

I was so disappointed... I actually went back and watched it again a few days later to try to see the film for its own merits. Now, I think the film was OK, but it could have been so much better.

Re: what was in your mind for each film before you saw/knew anything?

Nimoy gets ALL the blame for Saavik in SFS. He is the one directing her to play straight Vulcan, and it's funny, because I think Curtis -- who did a kickass job playing the kind of ethical teacher everybody should have once on TV in a way that blew me away -- could have done a much better job than Alley at playing the mix (Alley's emotional variances make her seem like a cheerleader with pointed ears at times.)

If you read Bennett's original outline for SFS, Saavik is still definitely half-rom, and even sleeps with Kirk.

You know that would have been an interesting take and definitely much better than what we got. Would Patrick Stewart agree to it though?

Re: what was in your mind for each film before you saw/knew anything?

As I recall early STARLOG reports referred to Trek II as "The Undiscovered Continent" (not a typo on my part, this was their mangling of Meyer's preferred title) and reported that Khan would steal a weather controlling machine.

I got the impression from early reports that Kirk and company would crash the Bird of Prey in San Francisco Bay, barely missing the Golden Gate Bridge, on their arrival in the past in TVH. Easy enough to see or read about the return trip and think it was the arrival.

The teaser trailer for Star Trek: First Contact had me really worried that the crew was somehow downgraded to a class of ship with a Constitution-style saucer, especially since the next shot had worried Riker and Troi on a shaking bridge. Thankfully, it was only a teaser trailer that reused the scene of Sisko's Saratoga under attack.

Re: what was in your mind for each film before you saw/knew anything?

In part because of this thread I officially bought the Next Generation bluray set and STII individually, since I don't have the much talked about "restoration". For awhile I didn't want to triple dip (VHS, DVD, BD) but what the Hell.

GEN: I'll give this another look, it's been ages since I looked at it.
STFC: I like this but not as much as when I walked out of the theater.
ST:INS: I actually rewatch this one more than the others, possibly because I'm not super enthused or hateful of it. Trying to get a read on it.
STNEM: Great looking movie, really expecting a great picture on BD.

I think it's to Trek's credit that we can all still rewatch and get something different out of them, escpecially after all those years, and remembering the anticipation of first seeing them.
