    Yes, not everyone cares about movies being "spoiled", though the ones who do care are a lot louder in their preference.

    That said, revealing details of the movie does seem to contradict the embargo. Problem is, this is online and therefore on the record. Getting the gossip over a pint would be safer and more fun. Anyway, the main thing is - lets keep it under our hats, okay? What happens in TrekBBS stays in TrekBBS. ;)

    I think they have confused things by making the Franklin warp 4. Warp 6 might have been better.

    Really not big deal about the Franklin and it's engine Warp Speed. after all We assume that the voyagers and the defiant came about at roughly the same time frame in the 24th century and head to the the galaxy class and all three a different speed engine. While it might just be decimal points on the warp sale used at that time, the difference between warp 9.8 is vast compared to warp 9.975, that a huge difference win speed.

    And of course in real life with everything from boats, ships, motorcycles, trucks, cars, and various places we see various different engines that can all reach various different speeds. I don't think that anyone in that sort of field today expects each new engine design that is released has to be a faster engine model then an earlier one.

    As for spoilers, lets face it, we are already being hit with spoilers, I like to call them teasers and trailers, and tv spots. And thanks to the global information highway, people like myself in the US can see trailers, and tv spots that were never cleared for US release.

    Now I don't advocate someone releases a beat by beat breakdown of the film, or someone pulling a Wolverine back from 2009 and releasing on to the web the work print of the film, so far I see nothing that should really impact the viewing experience of those who mind getting spoilers.

    Warp speed has always been among the most inconsistent items in Trek continuity. This is not a big deal.

    I thought we already had a whole PM exchange where you raised your concerns and I took it to the other mods and admins in the BR and we all decided that the thread was acceptable and would remain open for now? Why are you bringing it up again in the thread?

    Do you think it is a better film than star wars 7?

    Yes, but I may not be the best judge - I fell asleep halfway through Episode 7.

    Thanks Andy.
    Does Spock get any decent scenes with Kirk in this one, or just McCoy? From the trailers it didn't look like much.

    Lol in fairness if you saw the org Star Wars in 1977 then you saw episode 7 so a nap is understandable :lol:

    LOL okay I will take it as promising, I have loved star wars for most of my life and got into trek later on, I even like the star wars prequels and was super hyped for episode 7 but I ended up just being very okay with it. it was not disappointing but neither was it great. it was just...... there.

    star trek beyond gives me hope there is another space adventure that will wow me again.

    Is the main bridge crew still human male dominated? Any sign of a Masters, Rand or Chapel? Or is Uhura the only Starfleet woman in the village?

    +10000. People getting bent out of shape about spoilers (and who advise OTHERS to avoid them) is incredibly annoying to me. Let people make their own choices. If they don't want to be spoiled, they should 1) stay out of a thread with a title that says "spoilers" and 2) don't go on the internet searching for stuff, because you'll be spoiled. Don't think that's possible? It is, if you truly want a 100% unspoiled experience.

    Let others have fun. We're all going to go see the movie anyway. So all the worries over spoliers (and Paramount's cute little "embargo") is pointless.

    Would you say there's a sense of exploration present in this movie?

    Yep.

    I wasn't even close to born in the 70's. Episode 7 just wasn't that good.

    I think so.
