    LOL.

    I always use that philosophy.

    Great episode, one of my faves of last season.

    Still mixed about Planet of the Dead though, havnt headed for the Who forum yet. Getting there though so ill see you in there.


    Ive avoided it so far, and will until release, so i wont be going in there.


    Ive been spoiled for Who last year and year before that and a few major movies recently and ive had enough of it. I'd rather go in and see Trek with awe, after seeing the clip from the shuttle where Urban channels De Kelley im looking forward to his performance just for that fact.

    Other than that, the trailers and those two clips is enough.




    "Spilers, Darling" ;)

    You'll need to be logged in to see them without the watermarks. Clicking in, like I just did, the watermarks are plainly visible, but not obnoxious.

    I think there may have been an attempt at one among the smilies Anti-Drone made, but detail becomes a problem working in small (25x25) image dimensions and, ultimately, Bonz was only willing to add a few, so she picked what she thought were the best of them, including :vulcan:, :cardie:, :rommie: and :klingon:.

    JJ Abrams interview done in Dubai. He talks about Nimoy, Trek and filming "something" in Dubai.

    Edit: This was posted on twitter a while ago, but I never got around to listen to it until this morning. Pine/Quinto talking on Aussie radio. The announcers mention Trek Today! :lol:

    2nd Edit: a review from a soldier who saw the movie twice! There are some (minor) spoilers, even though the soldier says it's spoiler free. (i dodged those paragraphs)

    Promising review. But until reading this, I was convinced that the setting with the industrial pipes and tanks was Delta Vega or somewhere and NOT engineering. I know it's too trivial to make or break the movie, but that description of engineering sounds very hard to accept. Everything else production design-wise sounds/looks fine but it almost seems like a "stunt" to do something like that to engineering; it sounds so utterly inconsistent with accepted conventions. If engineering looked more like ENT or even the FTL drive room in BSG that would be cool, but this description sounds very inappropriate. I'm upset :scream: Someone talk me down, please.

    It's probably the most ill-advised choice they made with the visual style of the movie.

    Yes, it's true.
    That little glimpse we got from the piped engineering is a wtf moment.
    If anything looks bad about this movie so far, this is it.

    But, we'll live. And maybe in the sequel they can correct it.;)

    Don't compare how you think Eng should look with the new one. Consider the old version was lax in it's representations of that area. You've never seen or heard of how the ship stores/recycles it's water supplies and now you get that honor. That help?

    I was watching the first Under Construction teaser just now and was wondering if those scenes make it to the movie ...hmm

    Not in this case, no. And I'm among the first to support most of the visual artistic choices that these folks have made.
