    Disney is not known for screwing up their franchises. That being said, do you think ANY movie will satisfy all the fanboys? I'm just hoping they don't totally screw it up like TPM.

    No, but then who cares about ALL the fanboys? Some of them are the most pedantic, demanding and narrow minded nerds on the entire planet.

    It's no wonder Triumph the Insult Comic Dog ripped them apart so easily.

    Yea. Just go into the Trek XI+ forum where you have a 1/2 dozen of what nicely can be called 'Trek tradionalists," who thinks JJ has ruined the franchise [desipite the fact it's more commerically successful than ever] and that Abrams isn't "cerebral enougn,' versus the past.

    Yup. Been in there quite a bit lately.

    How I didn't end up a stone cold alcoholic after reading all of that I'll never know.

    Because most of it is comedy gold (particularly the posts that are intended to be uber-serious). :lol:

    Don't forget the latest round about the "real length" (of an imaginary ship, mind you) of the Abrams Enterprise.

    300 metres

    No. 1100 metres

    No. 725 metres

    No. 4,287,374 millimetres

    No. It's in feet dammit.

    and so on




    That's some serious stuff. :lol:

    Do Star Wars fans argue about the appropriate length of light sabres?

    There used to be fans who argued and fought over the size of the unfinished second Death Star as compared to the first one. Also, the actual size of Vader's Executor Super Star Destroyer. But compared to most of the nuEnterprise stuff we've been reading?

    Not even close.

    Hrm. Of course. It's not the same thing at all. Star Wars is science-fantasy. It has as much scientific credibility as the Muppet Show. Star Trek, on the other hand, is pure, unfiltered, cerebral science-fiction, a perfect extrapolation of the future of mankind, and every single detail is crucially important.

    And the future's going to have lots and lots of velour, miniskirts and lens flare. What rational person who studies and is intimately familiar with technological trends and evolution can possibly disagree with that?

    The evidence is all there. On screen. You'd think that even dumber-than-average people would notice! But noooo! If there's no lens flare they're just not interested!

    Hell, all the asinine John Harrison speculation alone will do that.

    He's Khan and Gary Mitchell and Garth of Izar.

    No need for that nonsense. We have dual-phase lightsabers!

    It's because Garth learned the art of Antosian shapeshifting. He's every character.

    Plus, he's also the Enterprise.

    Apply this technology to the hull of the Enterprise, and we're all set for continuity.

    Now then, what color were the nacelles again?
