Re: What are you looking forward to in Trek?

Damn. Forgot to multiple choice. Movie is a given and more interested in extras on ENT blu-ray than set itself. But genuinely intrigued about Renegades (seeing as a TV series unlikely for a while) and hope they succeed.

Re: What are you looking forward to in Trek?

For a franchise pronounced "DEAD" in 2006, it has a remarkably successful life of the undead. I wish I could post a list of these projects to all those people who predicated no ST project of any kind will ever happen again. LOL There were lots of them, and very vocal.

STNG Bluray
Into Darkness
Enterprise bluray

In that order. The Into Darkness production team has done nothing to pique my interest over and above what it would normally be.

Didn't know about this lol, I can't really imagine Star Trek dying. Maybe I'm too optimistic, but the worst case I can think of is a long time without a related tv series.

I remember people here pronouncing it dead or swearing it wouldn't be back for 50 years, but I don't know how many sensible people believed any of that. Star Trek is a brand owned by a money-grubbing corporation, that guarantees that we'll get some amount of stuff being thrown at us on an ongoing basis.

I'd say I'm likely to outlive Star Trek which doesn't really bother me. Better than dying while it's still reinventing itself and missing out.

Unless you're secretly Guinan, I can't see that happening. You may outlive this incarnation of Trek, as we have the last, but it'll always be brought back in one way or another. The success of JJ's movie proved once and for all that Star Trek endures beyond the original actors. There will always be a new Superman, a new James Bond, a new Sherlock Holmes... and a new James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock.

Even if, after the next Trek-related flop, it IS a 15 year wait. They bring back everything.

But in 100 years it will look like Captain Proton.

Re: What are you looking forward to in Trek?

My top three, in order:

1. Star Trek Into Darkness. While shocked at some of the things that happened, I am very happy that Star Trek '09 has reinvigorated the franchise. Looking forward to seeing where it goes.

2. Star Trek novels. The last few years have been extraordinary. David R. George III made my head explode (along with other things).

3. Star Trek comics. Can't take the kid out of me. I love 'em.

But I don't want to miss out on anything. It's like dying before ROTJ was released. If I can't see the new incarnations of Trek no one should be allowed to see them, they should not exist.

Just do what I'm doing, plan on living forever.

Re: What are you looking forward to in Trek?

Imagine if it went on for another 200 years and you had yourself frozen and defrosted to watch each new incarnation. Not having absorbed all the changes in culture and entertainment styles it would be very trippy and getting more so with each defrosting.

It won't even take that long. TOS pretty much looks like Captain Proton today!
