    Just because two ships are facing off? A melodramatic villain? Anyway, I'm not saying it's good Star Trek. I did, though, get the sense that they were trying to do something new to invigorate Trek movies, as if this was meant to be the first of several in a new style. The visual style was very different from Wrath of Khan or any other Trek film. Interesting, but not really Trek, and too action/adventure for me.

    Throw in obligatory Data death and convenient backup Data as the most conspicuous similarities.

    Regarding fake pink Klingon blood - I watched the lone color Perry Mason episode "The Case of the Twice-Told Twist". One of the characters gets shot in the arm, and the blood looked noticeably pink.

    I am deeply disappointed and kind of mad at Sir Patrick Stewart, to be honest with you. It was my sincerest hope that TNG would not be cheapened by a "TNG: Continues" series, but behind closed doors there have been a lot of hearty handshakes and signing of documents. I hoped against hope that it would not come to this and you know -- you KNOW there's been rumours going around for YEARS about a Worf series one minute, a Titan series another ... none of which ever came to fruition. And I was glad. But a follow-on series is finally here. No good can come from this ill-advised endeavour. Just can't leave a good thing alone, is what it comes down to ...

    **********

    OK ... I just read this and it looks like things are not looking as black as originally written above:

    The new series will not be a reboot of The Next Generation but instead is being described as an exploration of the next chapter of Picard's life. Additional details about the new series, including its title, episode count or a premiere date, are being kept under wraps.

    So there were Klingons in the 1950's here on Earth?!

    Deep, deep cover...so deep he doesn't know himself. :klingon:

    Actually, the episode's from 1966. It's another example of using pink instead of red to avoid being seen as too graphic.

    DS9 and VOY need to be made HD. It looks silly that these are the only two Star Trek series still in SD. And it's going to look sillier still as even more series come out.

    I'm sure that bean-counters have checked the benefits of doing this compared to the cost and deemed it not worth it.

    Do beans still exist in the 24th century?

    Silly me!

    They need money to pay for the military, and beans to feed them. It's all becoming clear.

    Navy beans are sometimes bet against credits.

    Dozens of mentions across all series, but here's a notable excerpt from the award-winning Star Trek V:

    Unfortunately, I don't think you've been here long enough to do Private Messaging, I believe you need to pass 14 days and 14 posts for that to become available.

    If it's a general question, you can probably ask in QSF. If it needs to be private, I'm not sure. Perhaps tag them in a thread, and then ask them to PM you? I think you might still be able to respond to messages sent to you, although I'm not entirely sure about that, sorry.

    Alternatively, you should be able to use Contact Us to reach the board administrator.

    My question relates to "The Trouble with Tribbles." In the bar, a Klingon calls Kirk a "tin plated dictator" among other things. What does "tin plated" mean?
