Ironic, isn't it ? Fans from one type of genre fiction not wanting anything to do with stuff from another one. I was just glad to see him.

There's a greater chance of seeing The Rock in the next Star Wars films.


And that will be so funny. Now that Abrams does both, he will get criticized from both ends. Why did he do all those cool things in Star Wars, but only the sucky things in Star Trek? Why did they cast all the A-listers in Wars VII, but not in Trek III? Or vice versa.

Vice versa indeed. You remember how much flak Lucas got for the prequels ? SW fans complain just as much.

I was one of the few people who supported him, pointing out that he already had acting experience since he was a WWE wrestler. Also he was playing a wrestler type athelte on the show and not some scientist. He was good in it and it was a decent and entertaining episode but got bashed by VOY fans.
Wasn't the main complaint from fans not against Johnson specifically so much as that the episode was shameless cross-promotion for wrestling on the UPN network? It's like when they try and awkwardly shoehorn characters from a new series into an established one or spend an entire season blatantly incorporating Degree Antiperspirant into the narrative of each episode (I'm looking at you, Eureka).

As far as those types of things go, I agree that it was actually an okay episode, but I could see why it would bug some people.

Don't forget, 'Big Show' was on Enterprise as well! T'pol kicked his ass iirc. I suppose there was rage on here then as well!

I think people are more receptive toward Johnson now because he has had a very successful career in blockbuster movies since then and is not a bad actor. I just think he would make a good Klingon and remembered the Trek connection

For me, the problem with "Tsunkatse" was it was just cheap. The set was terrible--like something out of a cartoon, and it was obvious they hadn't put a lot of effort into the choreography.

As much as I am willing to give Johnson the benefit of the doubt, there is one role he is about to play which I wish he wasn't: my favorite country singer, Charley Pride.

What has a Charley Pride biopic got to do with anything under discussion here? Go start a thread in GTV&M if you really want to talk about that, but don't derail any threads in this forum with it.

William Shatner as Harry Mudd. Or would that be too distracting?

Wow. That would actually be kind of brilliant.

But in all seriousness, the only standards I have for the next Trek movie are:

(1) A good story that is compelling and entertaining, and
(2) A bit less blatant fan service.

And as long as (1) is mostly there, they can probably get away with (2) again, as far as I'm concerned.
