Re: This made me chuckle

Meh, I've had my fill of haters-gonna-hate. I'm getting tired of fanboys so stuck in 1966 that they can't look beyond anything else then Star Trek as it was then, and if it isn't an exact copy of that, it will suck. We went through all this when TNG came out, and now TNG is one of the most revered Star Trek shows ever made.

And heck, if you don't like it, that's fine too. But stop forcing your opinion on others with stuff like this.

Is that aimed at me or the guy who made the poster?

Probably the guy who made the poster but in general, it sounds like it's aimed at all fans.

The only people who expect Trek fans to like "all things Trek" are the outsiders who aren't into it in the first place and think it's all the same.

At the same time though, one of the main underlying themes through all Trek is tolerance of others beliefs, even if we don't agree with them. So it's strangely ironic that regardless of which series or film or version of Trek comes up, there's always someone, or some group, that doesn't know how to be civilized and "practice what Trek preaches", for lack of a better term.

How can you say you're a fan of something that talks about tolerance and acceptance while attacking those that believe something different than you?

And BTW, Mage, nobody held a gun to your head and said "open the thread and stare at the poster till your eyes bleed!!!" Nobody's forcing anything on anybody.

Re: This made me chuckle

I can appreciate someone else's funny poke at the things they dislike with Star trek and laugh hard with them. Doesn't mean I actually believe or agree with any or all of the things they hate. Its called having a sense of humour!!!!

And as admiral2 so rightly said no one forced you to look and get so worked up!!!

Shees....

So, it's ok for people to voice their opinion like the guy who made the poster. It's ok for for God knows how many topics and posts where people voice their opinion on how nuTrek sucks ass, just because it's not a direct copy of TOS.

But when I voice my opinion on being a bit fed-up with it, I'm doing something wrong? Makes sense.....

No, it wasn't aimed at you.

I'm remaining solidly 'meh' about STID. The trailer didn't get me fired up. I will go and see it but I'm not about to queue for days to get tickets.

I'm really hoping Mr Cumberbatch isn't Khan or Mitchell (or any other existing bad guy). If this is a reboot then let it be original, rather than just rehashing everything that was done before.

The poster did make me chuckle though.

Dude, it's a cute poster.

You must be a lot of fun at parties.

Yeah, I'm a hoot actually. But like I said, it's ok to voice your opinion when you hate nuTrek appereantly. It's not ok to voice your opinion when you're tired of the same old lame jokes being repeated over and over again.
