Re: 'Star Trek XI' Made For Movie Lovers

So I met this guy who worked on ST:XI. He couldn't tell me anything specific (naturally) but he was wildly enthusiastic about it.

"It's like Star Wars meets Blade Runner, with Star Trek characters."

I cringed.

I fear the worst.

Fascinating. Probably misleading, but sounds good.

He went on to explain that, "I'm not saying we're not honoring what's come before, (but) if we made this movie for them alone, we would be limiting our audience like crazy."
Thank fuck for that!

I'm glad. personally I'm sick of the canon nazis and the whining about Abrahms. Make the movie to be fun first - after all its just a movie and tv franchise not the way to enlightenment with roddenberry as resident lama.
If any of you think that anyone other than Star Trek fans are going to see this movie then you are as delusional as J.J. Abrams. Star Trek has devolved to such an extent that no one but fans will go near it. Perhaps some die-hard J.J. Abrams fans will be curious and go see it but that's about it.

Star Trek for a general audience!?!? Big box office!?! That's a good one! Yer killin' me! HO HO HO HO HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!

Re: 'Star Trek XI' Made For Movie Lovers

Of course Star Trek can't make big money at the box office (again)! It only exists in my head! The general audience doesn't understand me, and by extension, Star Trek.

Re: 'Star Trek XI' Made For Movie Lovers

It's not a question of Star Trek not appealing to average viewers. Its more a question of the movies based on later versions of trek not appealing to them. For alot of people Star Trek is still "Dr" Spock and Kirk and "Beam Me Up Scotty". They also could care less how many ships got blown up at the battle of wolf 359 or where to find the captain's quarters on the sternbach enterprise plans. People want something accessible but mostly just fun. To me none of the TNG movies were just plain fun. That's why I'm fine if Abrahms even if he says "canon be damned" I'll judge the effort by how much I enjoy the movie itself and whether it was well thought out and executed - not whether they turned the dilithium crystals upside down or numbered the decks in the wrong order.
