    Nope.


    You're confusing fan films with real Star Trek. Hard to imagine, really.

    Fans, many of whom evidently understand it far better than JJ the hack.

    If I ignored the "new" Star Trek, I suppose I wouldn't be in this thread talking about it. :devil:

    I ignore nothing. I just don't watch it again if I don't like it.

    As much as I like the various fan films, most aren't really trying to create anything new. They are simply following very closely to the already made mold. Which is fun is in its own right, but I find is very unsatisfying after a while. YMMV.

    Newsflash, TrekBBSers...in case you didn't catch it the fifty million other times he's said it, Warped9 hates the new Star Trek movies.

    Who cares? At some point you just get tired of hearing it.

    Yes. The real question is, when will he get tired of writing it?

    One thing that happened since this thread first came around is that I saw Into Darkness. I didn't like it. That being the case, I have no real reason or desire to talk about it again. This post doesn't count.

    I did like the film. But it is obvious that not everything is going to work for everyone. Everybody is different and has different things they are looking for in entertainment.

    I just dislike the drive-by attacks in threads that aren't remotely related to the movies. They are tedious.

    Putting aside the dubiousness of the thread being bumped, to answer the question I don't try to ignore *any* Star Trek. Heck, when I was in high school I used to rave on about The Animated Series back when the general consensus was that it 'officially' didn't exist. I didn't care. For me, it was years 4 and 5 of the original mission, and I'd never let anyone tell me otherwise. :D

    So no, generally the JJ-movies don't bother me. :p

    I ignore anything after the first half of TOS season one. That's only real Trek.

    ^^ I can understand that.

    There you go.

    Just as those of us who get tired of hearing we should be kissing JJ's ass.

    I am fairly certain nobody has ever suggested you do that.

    No one's making you do anything you don't want to do. Choosing to constantly bitch about it is your choice.

    Okay, folks. This thread is over a year old (:scream:), and leading quickly to an argument that's not about TOS, but about the new films.
