The Way I'm Going To See It..

Here's the way I want to be before I see Trek XI:

Nardpuncher: Hey Pablo, Remember that TV show Star Trek?
Pablo: Yeah, it was in the 60s right?
Nardpuncher: Yeah, with all the wacky aliens and stuff and that cool ship, and Spock.
Pablo: What about it?
Nardpuncher: Well, I heard they're making it into a movie!
Pablo: Wow...will they have those same guys in it?
Nardpuncher: No...they're a little too old...they have new actors in it.
Pablo: Sounds like fun...they haven't made a show like that for ages!


You see...I want to pretend that ( now don't get me wrong) that TNG, DS9, Voy and Enterprise never happened. Not because I don't like them...but it will be neat to go in as though this movie was the first Trek since, well, the animated series.

It seems as if that's the way they're approaching it.

Yeah, I'm essentially going to disconnect as far as possible from Trek before I see this movie because I want to go in as if it were the first Trek ever.

Oh boy, I can see myself having to elaborate on that a lot in a minute.

While you are having a good attitude towards this, the line "Well, I heard they're making it into a movie!" stuck to me. Didn't this already happen, with ST:TMP?

That's just crazy enough to work!

Eh... not so hard to do. That's how I approach every new Batman movie.

Of course But I'm pretending even that movie and the ones after never happened either.

That's probably good, too. I remember when Superman Returns came out, it was hard not to compare the new actors with the old. But I am tempted to see how well Pine does Captain Kirk. He may look the part, but is he going to sound the same?

I might have myself hypnotized to forget everything Trek I have seen till now. Hypnotoad, I need you.

Nah, that was a Motion Picture. This is just a movie.

Re: The Way I'm Going To See It..

I simply can't help myself. I always knit everything together into my own personal continuity, and rationalize any gross contradictions away. I take it all as canon, even books and comics and stuff that flatly conflicts, and find a way to squish it all into one big universe. I have a disease.

That said, I am open-minded about this new film. If it contradicts or violates what I already know, I'll adapt, not insist that the film is somehow Star Trek blasphemy.

Re: The Way I'm Going To See It..

I try to never compare incarnations of movies to their previous generation.

But sometimes it happens, such as in Batman The Dark \Knight.

But mostly because it used three scenes from the Burton/Keaton movie.
