    Can they use that? I thought the Lucas-haters had it copyrighted.

    We can? Do please explain.

    It'll probably be tagged as Star Trek, or perhaps just Trek.

    No doubt there may be those that will call it TINO. ;)

    It will simply be known as TOCWNAEFLNWIRHOR.

    The Original Characters With New Actors Except For Leonard Nimoy Who Is Reprising His Original Role. :techman:

    That's perfectly reasonable. :bolian:

    Not to belabor the point, but TOS stands for The ORIGINAL Series.

    This is not the original series.

    So in response to the question: No.

    Oh, sure -- use logic and facts and, like, reason and stuff! Sheesh. :p

    Sure you don't mean "pedants"?

    Perhaps I'm interpreting this question differently. I see it as "Will STXI and any sequels be considered part of TOS since it concerns that era?" I'd say it could be considered as part of TOS movies but not simply TOS. I tend to think of Trek as divided into ENT, TOS, TOS movies, TNG/DS9/VOY, and TNG movies.

    I didn't mean to diss J.J. It's just that I was hoping to keep moving forward, not to go backward.

    Yes, I was refering to Enterprise and the recent Star Wars trilogies. Thanks cardinal, seems you know me too well :)

    No, we've seen that most filmmakers do prequels badly, not that they don't work. Casino Royale is, essentially, a prequel, but I thought it worked pretty well.

    I think ST11 will be known as "The White Aldebaran" :D

    Of course if it does well enough for a sequel what would that be?

    Star Trek II
    or Star Trek XII

    I guess if their is a sequel it will have a subtitle, so most likely it will be referred to by an abbreviation or the initials of the subtitle (like TMP etc.). If not Star Trek XII would be the better solution in my opinion to avoid confusion, since there already is a Star Trek II

    NST.... New Star Trek
    It works for me... I like the K.I.S.S. method. Keep It Simple, Stupid, but then again I tend to use that stupid logic thing. :vulcan:
    (Or maybe NST could stand for Nimoy Star Trek... just to piss off the Shat fans. :guffaw:)

    Perhaps they'll go the route of the Batman movies (Batman Begins and The Dark Knight): the second one doesn't even have Batman in the title. Maybe it'll be Star Trek and To Boldly Go.

    How about Star Trek: The Re-Make or Star Trek: 2.0?

    I'd propose something like:
    TOS 2.0
    TOS2
    TOS Reboot

    I think 'TOS2' would be a niftier shorthand for this setting, should it turn out to consist of more than just one film.

    Sloppy TXT, urban, therefore "kewl", I suppose.

    Bah, kids today... why can't they use proper grammar, like what I do! :p

    Absolutely... I mean, how often do we hear the name "Nems-a-mess" now? :)
