Star Trek 12

Postby MsBrandybuck » Thu May 19, 2011 2:18 am

Almost as Trek11/2009/Reboot wrapped up, there was promise of another movie.

So, where is it??

http://www.scificool.com/jack-ryans-problems-are-star-treks-gain/

Trek was delayed because the studio was developing a Jack Ryan movie [main character of Tom Clancy book/movie "Hunt For Red October" and others].

So why shelve one in favor of the other? Because Chris Pine [Captain Kirk] is signed to play Jack Ryan. But now because of script problems on that movie, Star Trek has been put back onto the front burner. Tentative release date of 2012!

Yeah, Chris Pine had signed on for a Jack Ryan movie, which delayed the S.T. shoot.
The 2nd S.T. movie was going through re-writes anyway so they were happy to wait for his other project to wrap up. But it [the other movie] never got started either.
So I guess that since he's been released from that other obligation that he's free to do the Trek movie now- and thankfully they got a script together that they can shoot.
So now we wait......

Is it bad that I think they messed too much with the lore? Okay, I think they drove a coach and horses through it and I didn't like the new captain. That said, if they'd renamed it, the film would have stood on its own. Okay, I'm a purist...!

Star Trekken'???
It was no worse than when they started next gen, where they strived to deconstruct what was put forth by the original series. As a TOS purist, I still can't watch much of the first seasons of next gen. It did get better when they got past that. I think the best Next Gen episode is Ryker going crazy in 'Frame of Mind'. Now Deep Space Nine I truly enjoyed!

Oh, DS9 was glorious. TNG could get a bit preachy at times but DS9 gave us meaty, complex plots leavened by comic relief from the Ferengis. Fantastic stuff!

I loved DS9, too. What's wrong with us :lol:? Most everybody I know hated it because everybody came there and you didn't get to see "new worlds and new civilizations" - that's the reason they gave for thinking nothing good of it :? .

I liked the exploration of cultures. You could spend entire episodes just investigating them, and the social issues addressed always mattered more to me than the science, which I don't get.

DS9 revolved around the planet Bajor and had ambassadors from a variety of worlds... dang, I'm such a Trek nerd!

I couldn't get into DS9 because I could never remember which night it was on, and then after missing a bunch of shows it was hard to follow the storyline. I think that the story arc is problematic in that way as opposed to the self-contained 1 episode story.
Fringe is about the only story arc that I've followed consistently- and I know if I'd missed a few episodes in a row then I'd be hopelessly lost. ['Lost".... another show I didn't follow...]

And I didn't even mind that it was on a space station - I was cool with that. And you gotta love those Ferengi.

Next Gen started out slow and jerky - but I was so Trek deprived that I gave it another shot for the 2nd season and liked that the cast had gelled a bit and the characters became more interesting. Yes... it got preachy... yes, there were some stinker episodes, but in all I liked it. And this was after being a TOS purist for a lotta years.

My friend Mel could be you! She's said much the same (when Lost went time-traveling, that's when I think a lot of the fans just 'lost it'.) But I think
what keeps me coming back to Fringe is that I love the characters. I'm a fool for characters. Once they seduce me, I am well and truly in their thrall (one day back in the spring, I was getting out of the car in a small parking lot and found a red licorice twist just outside the door. Walter? :/ )

And I didn't even mind that it was on a space station - I was cool with that. And you gotta love those Ferengi.

(Did you know that Ferengi means "foreigner"? You can't get much more foreign then them - though a friend of mine once said that if you could see the souls of the robber barons of Wall Street, that's what they'd look like.)

Next Gen started out slow and jerky - but I was so Trek deprived that I gave it another shot for the 2nd season and liked that the cast had gelled a bit and the characters became more interesting. Yes... it got preachy... yes, there were some stinker episodes, but in all I liked it. And this was after being a TOS purist for a lotta years.

I agree with all of that. I've never seen the first season complete.

Speaking of TOS, has anybody seen the subtle little changes that were made in the DVDs? We were watching "The Menagerie", and saw that in places where you'd be on the Enterprise and near a window (which was always filled in), the space would be open and filled with...ah...space?

Next to Star Trek II (Khan), the best battle scenes were in some of the DS9 episodes.

And after the TOS legacy of Kirk, Picard SURRENDERS the Enterprise in what, the first episode, or was it the second? And counselor Troi... gag

One of the reasons I liked DS9 was Sisko was everything Picard was not. And they developed Miles O'Brien from more than a 20 second transporter operator, and furthered Worf's character.

Anyone want to mention the far-fetched Voyager? I pretty much watched it for Jeri Ryan. And don't get me started on Enterprise... Abrams
HAD to re-boot it after that.
