What do you Think about XI?

Do you think that this movie will re spark interest among fans or even grab new fans?

Re: What do you Think about XI?

It'll probably grab some new one-time fans, but the movie really isn't anything they haven't seen before in something like the Star Wars prequels. Some will absolutely gush for the movie and how awesome they thought it was, others will go on about how awful it was, and the rest will just shrug their shoulders.

Re: What do you Think about XI?

I hope that the movie will be able to spark interest and re-ignite the franchise. I already know two people (my girlfriend and another friend of mine) who have expressed interest in the movie, despite never watching trek before. I remain pessimistic though. I don't want to be let down in the event that the film does poorly.

Re: What do you Think about XI?

The film has and will spark interest among trekkies and those who arent into Star Trek
There surely will be some new fans, but i feel somehow that minority of them will be what we call Trekkies. I hope im wrong, though
One must remember that there are people who went to see films like Dark Knight or Transformers arent necessarily fans of either, per se, and just want to see some good summer flick and have good time in the cinema.
These viewers most likely wont be buying toys or other Trek stuff, nor they most likely will watch any earlier Star Trek movies or shows.
They will go see the sequel most likely and that will make the studio happy, because their money is mostly needed and wanted...

Re: What do you Think about XI?

One thing people forget is that this might be the first movie in which there is decent space battle cgi -i've spent years looking for it, so have others. If the plot isn't too shoddy and they have at least 10 mins of good cgi they might pick up quite a few fans.

Re: What do you Think about XI?

while i enjoy a good space battle as much as the next person, Trek has never been about space battles. or at least, it shouldn't be.

It will indeed re-ignite the franchise. This movie will cause millions to buy the newly released DVD sets of Star Trek, and see where it all began. Some will even venture into the 24th century, and explore the adventures of Picard, Sisko, and Janeway.

Or some will buy the DVDs since that's basically all that will be left for them to do.

Maybe one two-hour bit of Trek could be pretty action packed? We don't need everything Trek can do encapsulated into only two hours, surely? As long as it's much better than the movie your name comes from (which really was all about battles - boring ones), it'll be a fun time.

Re: What do you Think about XI?

I remember years ago when Trek was very popular, I could find tons discussions, chats and irc networks about Star Trek, alot of things have died down. I hope this movie does spark interest, even in the "new youth".

Re: What do you Think about XI?

You know, I keep hearing that Star Trek was popular back during TNG, but I certainly never really saw any of that, personally. I can still remember getting made fun of as a kid for liking Star Trek (or "Track" as they called it)

I remember those days, everyone from the online communities I've been with have been disappearing, they come and go it must be a phase.

aren't you like 20 years old?

of course you don't remember the chat rooms during TNG

I do, btw. I was in college then and it was pretty exciting for Trekkies. Trek was *in*. I'm hoping things go back at least partway to that. it'll do Trek good if this movie does well. if only for that, I can't imagine any REAL Trekkie not wishing this movie well.
