I think somebody just miscounted . . . .
Counting is for dorks.
This fandom will not be dictated by numerical accuracy.
Indeed. What do you think we are, nerds?
Did JJ also sneak into your house and break all your DVDs? Unless he did that, then your Star Trek is beautifully preserved and you can watch it over and over and over and over and over and over again and it will be exactly the same as it always was. Every last bit of digitally encoded information can be burned right into your screen for all eternity.
You're just not going to get any new stuff based on it.
It failed to be profitable. It failed to be marketable. It failed to grow it's audience at the time when some of it's earliest fans started to literally die off (it's been 46 and a half years for God's sakes).
It failed to evolve and keep with the narrative style that is popular today. It looked cheesy just as Brosnan's Bond looked cheesy next to Craig's Bond or Clooney's Batman next to Bale's.
You had more than enough chances to invite enough friends to keep prime-Trek going strong. Hell, UPN even gave you a freebie season because they didn't have anything else to air. Apparently, for someone as demanding as you, you seem to lack the clout to gather millions of friends around for just one hour a week to keep what you love so much from going on.
What sort of madness would it take for a company to keep producing the same product for an ever shrinking size of the population?
Ask the comics industry.
C'mon -- Give him a break. Roman numerals are tough, even if you do speak Italian.
Er, yeah. He's pissed at Spock because Spock didn't save Romulus from destruction, and now he's trapped 200 years in the past because of Spock, and he wants to make Spock suffer by doing the same thing to his planet that happened to Romulus. So Nero's anger doesn't make sense to you, why?
Nero made it quite clear why he wants to blow up Earth. He told his reasoning to Pike when he abducted him. Were you in the movie theater bathroom during that scene?
Maybe you arrived in the cinema ten minutes late, because the masterful opening sequence of ST (2009) even made us care about Robau, George Kirk and wife, Winona. Powerful stuff!
The Spock/Uhura material was also both fresh and an emotional ride.
Star Trek needed a reboot. They had a great chance to do so in 1987, but unfortunately screwed it up.
This is has given me the courage to post up something that I made a few months ago:
With the divine rays of light only pointing toward the ground and the fuzzy rocks around his feet, it looks like a bunch of tribbles are trying to lasso Roddenjesus (or do we prefer Jesusberry?). Oddly appropriate.
Is that infant.. suckling??
Suddenly I'm remembering Harlan Ellison's The Glass Teat.
Yep. It was all downhill from there ...
Replace the sheep with sehlat and rocks with tribbles and you've got a winner.
Oh, and the little girl he's touching needs a bigger rack. Gene likes his women curvy!
There is always "Eugene H. Christ".
"Jesusberry" sounds like a place upscale Christians would go to get frozen yogurt.
