Since JJ Abrams didn't break into my house and steal my collection of DVD's and Blu-ray's, it's still alive to me.

I still have the pictures and videos of grandma and grandpa, but they are not around anymore for new pictures and videos, because they are dead.

We're not talking about people we're talking about movies and TV shows. Jesus Christ, some people will take things to the extreme just to win a point on the fucking internet.

It's really kind of sad.

The point is, if you don't get anything new, it's dead.

MacGyver is dead. Magnum is dead. Babylon 5 is dead. Etc... Sure, you have the DVDs, but it's over.

Re: Happy 19th Birthday, Star Trek Generations!

There are 736 episodes and films of Prime Trek in existence as opposed to 2 movies of Abramsverse Trek. They're part of the canon and will continue to be sold and marketed ad infinitum, especially as the half-century mark of "The Cage" and TOS approach. Even Abrams and his team said that their new timeline and reality runs parallel to the old one and that Prime Trek still exists in its own continuum.

Classic Trek's not dead, not in that sense you mean.

Re: Happy 19th Birthday, Star Trek Generations!

I hope not. I'd rather it didn't.

Anyways, Generations is a pretty good film in spite of its logical loopholes and flaws and it marked a moment in Trek history we probably won't see the likes of again. 1994-96 was arguably the stratospheric peak of Star Trek as a national and global entertainment franchise when you could get away with having three different big-budget TV series either going off the air, in full swing or about to begin and two major films transitioning from the classic TOS characters to the Next Gen era of the 24th century. Trek was everywhere back then, even moreso than it has been during the past two Abrams movie promotional blitzes.

It was the last Trek that didn't have major plot details spoiled for millions around the world by the Internet (you can thank tabloid magazines , loose lips and press leaks for that) and one of the last times that Trek was truly a major box office and cultural event. Warts and all, it's an entertaining popcorn flick with some terrific special effects and memorable, meaningful scenes and sometimes that's all you need from a movie to have it be worthwhile.

MacGuyver, Magnum and B5 don't still have monthly novels continuing their plotlines long beyond the TV shows.

Nothing ever truly dies as long as there is public interest in it.

I believe the exact quote is:

For Kirk! HE died in the future 19 years ago!

I for one am still upset.

Re: Happy 19th Birthday, Star Trek Generations!

Yeah, Kirk's final moments underneath the metal bridge are still poignant. Even if a fan thanks his death could have been written better (I imagine that most probably do) the last moments are memorable and effective and I really don't mind the way Shatner approached the death of his most famous character.

No offense to the writers, but I really couldn't care less about the novels. Trek is mainly a TV show and film series for me.

It's not dead as long as people keep coming on a Star Trek BBS and bitch about it being dead.

What a fucking shame Magnum, PI is dead!




Did I just revive the TV show? When does the next season start?
