    Looks like a porcupine mated with a Zentraedi cruiser.

    What is it with the goddamned Zentraedi? Is this one of those it's-so-much-better-than-a-cartoon things that turn out not to feature a single scene of big-eyed chicks in sailor outfits having sex with tentacled creatures?

    It's fine if you don't like it -- you don't have to apologize to me.

    But I'm sick of reading: "Oh, that's sooooo Galaxy Quest... It sucks."

    GQ copied a lot of the look of Trek and tried to make it look "real" for the big screen -- that is, they made the movie looks like a bunch of aliens saw an old sci-fi show and turned what they saw into reality.

    It is no surprise that updating TOS to make it look "real" has shades of GQ to it.

    You had to be there.

    It's definitely too late to go back now. So don't try.

    It looks UnTrek like. It is from the future, as I understand. So, if it's from the future, why would it look like something fron ENT?

    The same reason why the Akira class looks like the NX class?

    I quite like it when Trek goes up against UnTrek. V'Ger looked nothing like anything in Trek before or since. I get kind of tired of how every race seems to have slightly different foreheads, warp nacelles, bubble shields, and beam + projectile weapon systems.

    "Congratulations, JJ.... it's a....squid."

    Ten Trek points to whoever knows what movie I'm paraphrasing!

    The future of what?

    Nothing in this film is visually designed to fit snugly into the old continuity. It's meaningless to look at a prop, or a set or a model and ask "how does this fit between X and Y that we've seen" or say "this is out of place next to thus-and-such a thing that came before" because everything has been redesigned for this film. The very premise that everything can be charted in its place in previous Trek design is a mistaken one. They are using what makes sense to them to use and changing what they choose to change.

    It is that simple.

    Good point, and I totally agree...but in the end, who the F cares? This movie is being made for the people out there who dont even CARE what a romulan ship looks like....meaning the non GOOBER sect of our society...

    I just want this movie to reflect on TOS. As it is now, it looks nothing like TOS.

    It's good that the Giant Squid was able to get work in "Star Trek" since it was fired from "Watchmen." :lol:

    Exactly. And Rob, are you suggesting that I, and everyone else on this forum, are goobers?
