You should have hated the movie when you had the chance, before it premiered. Now you see what happens when you're willing to accept that it's just a movie. This isn't a movie, it's war! It's the holy faithful against the people who think it's just a fun diversion.
Now you know better, and knowing is half the battle! The other half? Crying. Lots of crying.
Pfft! Who said I hated it? Me likey. Best thing to happen to Trek in decades.
And why would I hate it before it premiered anyway?
That's flat-out fucking stupid.
Relax, he's having fun.
This. Sorry for the cut-off post earlier. Two errant taps on my iPod Touch screen and it was up. All I hope for is that people can simply agree to disagree and just be one big happy fandom.
the fans are full of spite
and spoilin' for a fight
like the reptilian gorn
sound the klingon battle horn
this thread is boldly goin'
nowhere, and we're knowin'
and waitin' for the lock,
it's logical like spock.
That is the starship Enterprise, now, and easily recognized as such by anyone who'd see the float; there's no reason in the world the studio that owns Star Trek should choose an old design to promote their product. Disney occasionally uses Steamboat Willie art for nostalgic purposes, but the official version of Mickey for publicity and merchandising is the current one. Now, the Enterprise may not be as big a deal to Paramount as Mickey Mouse is to Disney, but it must be getting close.
It's really pretty awesome that Trek has become that, and the float looks damned good.
Strange. Seems to me that there are a lot ships called Enterprise.
And we'll see which one has more staying power too. In 40 years we'll see if anyone gives a hoot about the JJ-Prise. The original proved to be an international icon. 100 years from now I suspect that if an historian had to pick one image to show someone what the fictional starship Enterprise looked like they won't pick the JJ-Prise.
With any luck we'll get a refit in the JJ-verse too.
I dunno, with a clean slate and the new Enterprise carrying over essentially all the iconic look of the old one, it could well act as the mascot to the franchise as a whole, at least for now.
Not according to some fans.
But fans are like space heaters. All we have to offer is hot air, and not much else.
Not me. I also provide copious amounts of methane with trace residues of hydrogen sulfide!
I'd consult a doctor
I did. He just said I was fartin' around.
This thread has changed my life.
This place will do that to you.
Hell, that's how the Excelsior was designed. I mentioned to Bill George that I knew people who asked what certain details were for on the Excelsior, and his reply was "It looked cool. That's why." It's not the Andy Probert approach, at all, but some people like the results.
