Paramount had what's supposedly its first float in the Pasadena Rose Bowl Parade this year. It featured the Enterprise:

Oh, I thought it featured the starship Enterprise. It was just JJ's pos.

Well it makes sense. Paramount's "Enterprise" is the 2009 Enterprise. Right now, it's "the" Enterprise in the minds of the shareholders and the main stream audience.

Plus, there was probably some sort of intellectual-property issue in that CBS (while owning Trek overall) likely owns the rights to the likeness of the previous versions while Paramount's "Enterprise" is all their own property. However that would work out.

You need glasses or contacts. And if you're already wearing them then perhaps you should have the prescription checked.

Re: The Improving the JJprise thread

Whatever anyone else "thinks", the current USS Enterprise, the only USS Enterprise at this point, is the 2009 version and therefore the one to represent the franchise and be part of Paramounts promotional events.

The oldPrise and D are too old to make any impression or be recognised by the crowds and therefore pointless to use. The NX-01, well, need I even explain that one?

I have 20-20 vision thank you, and with it I see in the image the 2009 Enterprise, the newest canon Enterprise of the franchise as endorsed by Paramount Pictures, who determines these things, not you.

What's the big deal, it's the "Enteprise". Not your Enterprise, not my Enterprise, it's Paramount's "Enterprise". The Current "Enterprise"

Oh I know, I'm just amused at your reluctance to accept such a simple little thing. Paramount owns the franchise, they determine what is canon and what isn't, and this *is* the Enterprise, it's not really up for debate.

Besides, it looks like the crowd are thoroughly enjoying it, which is what matters.

You mean it's not The U.S.S. Enterprise, as seen in the recent 2009 blockbuster hit "Star Trek"? Sorry, but since it's the only current Star Trek in production, and since it's Paramount's property, and they say it's the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701), you're mistaken. If you disagree, please call J.J. Abrams and tell him how wrong he is. I'm sure he'll hire you as a consultant for the movie right away. He may even let you hold the flashlight!

Better yet, call Paramount! Tell them they've got the wrong ship! I'm sure once they hear one lone fan who refuses to accept what is in front of his face, they'll turn a whole new leaf and get rid of this whole "making scads of money off of a popular franchise" thing right away and go back to making the same wonderful cardboard sets from TOS!

WAIT! WAIT! Forget all that! Someone go dig up Jeffrey Hunter and put his ass in the Captain's Chair! If we're going to do this, by god, we're going to do this right!

Have fun for the five or so years this sensation lasts and then most forget about it.

It's already been close to 4 (since the buzz began), so you can't be saying by the time the movie comes out there won't be anyone wanting to see it, because that would be patently absurd and an utter denial of the current course of events. Now, if it lasts 5 more years from this date, that will make it 9 years total, which was about the run of the original series movies, and longer than the TNG movies. So what you're saying is it will be at least equal to the others in terms of cinema longevity. Awesome!

Re: The Improving the JJprise thread

I remember the film being announced or teased originally back in November 2006, which is already over 5 years since the initial "buzz" began. As of May 2013 it'll be 6 1/2 years, and we're still talking about the first film now so say, 2016? but wait! that's when the third film in the contracted series will be in cinema's.

I guess by 2020 it'll die down. Of course by then, someone will have pitched or already be airing a new show or something based on them or a new reboot, hmm.
