Meh! Forget about "TrekBBS".

This is CLEARLY All About Us.

Well done, all thread participants!
I'll echo what PKTrekGirl said. Awesome job to everyone involved.

I still don't really understand the purpose of the "Sombreroprise."

Simple: to be AWESOME.

And make Abrams cry in shame. We have to have that.

Ah, so this is basically a way to protest the stupid and unnecessary canon changes Abrams has made for no reason other than to attract "new fans?" I can get on that!!

Well, I'd like to believe the truth...so if you wouldn't mind clarifying instead of confusing the issue...

Re: Blue Warp Nacelles?

^I'm sorry, those are national secrets.

I think the Trekmovie blurb summed up the intentions pretty well:

Trekmovie wrote:
Ever wondered what the USS Enterprise would look like if fans really had a say in the design, find out below in this weeks Great Links.

...

If you ever needed proof that the new USS Enterprise for JJ Abrams Star Trek should not be designed by a committee and adhere to all fan requests, one only needs to look at the ever evolving images of the ‘USS Sombreroprise’ which was spontaneously created by creative denizens of the TrekBBS, within a discussion about "Should the Enterprise have blue warp nacelles."
Hey! As a bonus, the thread is now recursive!

So it's really just a mockery of the very idea that Abrams should adhere to canon, eh? I'll bet you people would sing a different tune if it was your precious TNG/DS9/VGR Abrams was fucking up.

More a mockery of the idea that every single poster here has an idea of what "canon" Abrams should include in his film, and you can barely find two people who's opinions on the matter line up.

He'll never be able to please everyone, so we might as well have some fun.

Eh. I doubt it. I adore TNG, having grown up on the show, but it's got its own share of goofy '80s touches. If someone wants to come along and redo all that, I'd give them a fair shot. Sure the changes could be for the worst, but they could be for the better, too.

It called "fun". Everyone is just being silly. Relax.

Funny, people never seemed to have a dispute over TOS canon for the 40 years Trek has been around. The only real "canon debate" that fans can't agree on is whether or not "Enterprise" should be added to the Trek continuity.

There's only so far you can change something before it becomes a totally different entity. I think Abrams should keep that in mind.

And the degree of that change before it becomes a different entity is different for each person, which was my point. What you see as violating the Trek spirit I and Sam and plenty of others see as interesting cosmetic surgery.

So relax and have fun. We've got PEZ!
