    No Ruk? Fuck that!

    The most interesting thing to me is that he has had talks with CBS about an animated Trek series. I'd really like for that to happen!

    No Janice? Somewhere, Pauln6 is weeping.

    I hope the animated series happens. And is good!

    I will be happy to never see Charlie X again. I would love an animated Star Trek show!

    The "And is good!" piece is the most important. If you look at Star Wars, Transformers, and Tron (two of which were mentioned in the TrekMovie article), it can be hit or miss on how it's approached. I think people would have to be okay with the idea that the story development for an animated series will likely be FAR different than that of a live-action series; unlike the animated series of the 1970s, which was very much just an animated half-hour version of the 60-minute live-action show, I don't think the similarities between this and the rest of Trek will be so apparent. That said, I believe that it can be done well -- though, like the TrekMovie article states, it would be more appropriate to see a "finite" (i.e. not indefinite) Trek animated series that supplemented movies to tide us over on Trek-on-TV until the trilogy of Abrams-Orci-Kurtzman movies have finished and they can pursue a live-action series.

    Yes, this would have been a perfect opportunity to announce that Khan is not in the movie.

    After all, if that had been the intent of Abrams's statement months ago that Del Toro wasn't playing Khan - to deny that Khan is in the film, rather than misdirect - this would have been a chance to clarify that.

    They're going to keep the Khan rumor going as long as they can.

    Until it stops being a rumor, at least.

    But in the meantime, they'll keep the Trekkies guessing.

    Excellent! I hope the show is done well (when, cause let's be honest, it WILL happen sometime) and it truly rejuvenates Star Trek.

    Days like this I Khan truly believe that dreams Doohan come true.

    Lol - more like Pauln6 MAD..... :scream:

    It is disappointing as it means the male/female ratio will still be skewed more than it should be. Maybe they will have the blonde woman with the bun in the background like the first movie so I can comfort myself that she is there. It's a shame though, I fully expect this to be a 3 movie franchise followed by an animated series so we only have one more movie to bring my beloved back into the fold!

    At least it looks like Chapel might be in it but I hope they give her more than a name check this time.

    True. I didn't expect Gary Mitchell in the movie because he was killed off in the comics. Ruk is reminiscent of those ape things in the 4th issue of the comic book tie in, where Abrams said the clue, thematic foreshadowing lies. I never even entertained the idea of Charlie, and the Borg would be way to soon, anyway. And why use Rand in the comic book if she's not in the film? That one, I don't understand.

    Khan's picture isn't listed and one would expect if he's not going to be in the film, it would be there, to squash that rumor for good. Have we been lied to? What else are they telling us that isn't true? That it's going to be an exciting movie, and we're going to be satisfied at the end? What did Pine say, it was going to be "character driven drama?" It's sounding like character driven drivel.

    I'm really bummed now. First, they canceled the trailer for SDCC and now we find out that the rumor about Khan they said wasn't true, most likely is.

    I'm thinking that when this movie comes out, I should wait several weeks, until it's a second run movie. That way, I can see it in digital or 3D (why?) and only waste $4 to $6. I'm going to have to spread the word. We've been KHANNNNNNED!!!! Apologies.

    I guess now we know we can't believe Abrams and company, and I had such faith in him.:thumbdown:
