Star Trek
Next Generation
and...

that's it. Never got into any of the others. Babylon 5 wwas just starting when DS9 came out and I much preferred that.

Just quickly the order of the films would have to be:-
Khan
Country
1st Contact
Nemesis
Generations
Voyage
Motion Picture
Insurrection
Frontier
Spock

Although if I had to choose one to watch right now it would be Insurrection as it's been a while.

Disappointed in the trailer...

I'm a fan first and foremost of TOS. Nothing beats Kirk and the gang, although there are episodes that make me cringe...

I really liked Voyager. And honestly, I don't know why people were b***hing about Enterprise. It was really good.

I'd say if I had to rank them...

TOS
ENT
VOY
TNG

Never saw DS9 so I don't know.

As for the films, I really don't like The Final Frontier (although watching it with Shatner's commentary wasn't as bad as watching it without). I never much cared for The Next Generation at all, it was a little dull to me, so the movies with the TNG crew... Not really into them, except for First Contact, easily one of the best in the series. And I think people give TMP more c**p than it deserves. The trilogy of II, III, IV is one of the better story arcs that I've seen in the mythology. And VI is a good finale for the crew of the NCC-1701[-A]. I can't really rank them honestly... Some are stronger than others, but it's not like they're total c**p... Well, except for Nemesis...

Despite Motion Picture being down on my list, I do actually like it a lot. I didn't used to but it grows on me over time.

Nemesis, not a great Trek film but I think there is still good work in there by Patrick Stewart, Brent Spiner and Thomas Hardy as the villian of the piece. And the ending, thanks to Stewart and Spiner did for me at least have an emotional weight to it.

I think all of TNG crew are let down by the films though. There's just too much cast (7 I think) and not nearly enough for them to do in the majority of scripts but that's always going to be a problem with a 2 hour running time.

The new Star Trek movie might benefit from keeping with the core trio of Kirk, Spock and Bones. And Mr Pegg of course lending his talents.

Have to say the fake teaser trailer really gave me goosebumps. I'm really looking forward to this one, hopefully it will be great and that its not a reboot, that they make it part of the Canon. Abrams seems to know what he's doing, I thought he did a good job with M:I3. Long wait to see though. Motion Picture has some massive AWE moments in it, especially when Scotty is taking Kirk to the Enterprise, WOW.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I never really cared for it much either, but recently, I've discovered that it's really great.

Quote: Nemesis, not a great Trek film but I think there is still good work in there by Patrick Stewart, Brent Spiner and Thomas Hardy as the villian of the piece. And the ending, thanks to Stewart and Spiner did for me at least have an emotional weight to it.

It's been too long since I last saw it... So I'll be honest, I don't remember it that well, and I just went with the general consensus that it's terrible. But even then, I remember not caring for it at all.

Quote: I think all of TNG crew are let down by the films though. There's just too much cast (7 I think) and not nearly enough for them to do in the majority of scripts but that's always going to be a problem with a 2 hour running time.

Well, I agree, but only because they would split them up into an A story and a B story (and in First Contact, a C story), Picard and Riker never together, blah blah blah. But yeah, I think they jumped too much from plot to plot.

Quote: The new Star Trek movie might benefit from keeping with the core trio of Kirk, Spock and Bones. And Mr Pegg of course lending his talents.

Ironic on the trio part, not just you, but everybody. When Enterprise was airing, people complained that it wasn't an ensemble cast like TNG, VOY, and DS9, and characters weren't developed enough.

Sulu and Chekov weren't even in all of the episodes (I'm aware that Chekov only joined the second season), just random officers. How can they say that ENT is bad because it focused on a trio and not an ensemble (which I kinda beg to differ on)?

But yes, and I think that the trio focus would be good. BUT at the same time, TMP was trio, as was V (both considered "extended episodes"Wink, and II, III, IV, and VI were all ensemble-y, so I don't know if it would be better.

I look forward to see Pegg as Scotty, just afraid that it'll be too funny (haha, Shaun is trying to get main power back online!)

I really liked the fake trailer too, the real one was disappointing, although that could just be because I saw it in a rowdy, Trekkie filled theatre, who while it was playing, were literally  whooping and hollering and yelling "KIRK FOREVER!" "I LOVE SPOCK"---I kid you not---and I could barely hear, or even see it, they don't dim the lights for trailers at my theatre.

Quote: hopefully it will be great and that its not a reboot, that they make it part of the Canon.

I hope so too, but the trailer kinda dashed that hope for me.

Quote: Motion Picture has some massive AWE moments in it, especially when Scotty is taking Kirk to the Enterprise, WOW.

I used to joke about that, but I see now that it's a great moment. Well, I still joke about it. If footage is running long, and we need to edit it down, I'll jokingly say "No no, this is the Enterprise bit." Tongue

Well damn, that was a long one... Sorry about that.

Love the original series, couldn't care less for the rest. By the way has anyone seen Star Trek "Lethal atmosphere"? Had me crying with laughter.

Ah.. Trek, much like the discussion of "Who is your favorite Bond actor?"  It usually comes down to what you found first.  

Me?  I will choose them in basically the order they were made, except ranking Enterprise just slightly above Voyager.  

Movies?  TMP: Director's cut is (after all these years) not as bad as I remembered, and the 2,3,4 trilogy was well done, 5 still is painfull watch simply due to bad story telling, and production, 6 tries, but fails to recapture the magic they were looking for from part 2, and 7 will suck until Kirk is not killed by a bridge, 8 was good, 9 was good, 10 was not so good, lame villians hurt it with so many villians from the series still wanting attention, why make up a silly clone?

I, too, hope the new one is canon, and they don't make changes for changes sake like changing the ship to make it more modern... fans want to visit the old days, the makers are wanting to visit the old days, so they should not make it all newish, just my 2cents there.

I got the gag/joke about a second into it, and grew very tired of the whole bit around the 4th scene.  I had not heard of it until your post.

V wasn't bad with the commentary, really. At least I thought so. The 105 minutes that usually feels like 1005 minutes went by pretty fast.

As for the canon thingy... It looks to me from the picture of the new NCC-1701 that the nacelles have got some sort of fancy design to them.

And it appears that they're building it on Earth (or another inhabited planet/satellite)... Firstly, and here's where it's gonna reek of nerd, Constitution class starships were built in spacedock, or at least the Enterprise was (San Francisco Shipyards), as far as I know. Secondly, Constitutions can't land/take-off. The only one that I know can do that is the Intrepid class (Voyager).

My main problem isn't even with that. Just... How the Hell are they gonna get that thing into space once it's done?

Oh, and yeah, the Enterprise wasn't built for Kirk, it was commissioned in the 2240s I think... And Kirk's first five year mission was relative to the show, right? So 2264-2269? I know Pike makes an appearance in this, but right now, with so little info, I don't know what to make of it.

And please, if there are any inaccuracies in my post(s), which I think there might be, do point them out, I am by no means an expert on the subject.

Don't worry Cheddar, let your inner Trek geek shine and be proud of it Happy It is a bit of a head scratcher about the timeline. I was looking on Wikipedia on the timeline and it says Robert April was the first captain who went on the 5year mission. Then Pike followed and finally Captain Kirk. I'm a big Trek fan but I don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of it to be honest. Here's the link to the timeline, don't know how reliable it is.

Is April canon though? He appeared in the Animated series if I remember correctly, and there's a bit of a debate as to whether or not that's considered canon.

I've always considered him canon, but then there are the roves of Trekkies who say TAS is not official in any way. In fact looking at the timeline there proves it's not meant to be official, as it claims the 5 year mission ended in 2270, and TMP takes place in 2271 where Admiral Kirk has been the head of operations at Starfleet for two and a half years. I would put them before the first season of Star Trek, or mix them in with to create some kind of continuity.

So yeah, I consider April canon, but I know people would disagree.

I know what you mean, I am a fan, a big fan, but I am not a Trekkie in any way. I can't tell you what Spock said to Lt. Murphy in episode 13, or any of that. Wink

I think people are taking the new Star Trek teaser too literally and chances are none of the footage from it will show up in the actual film. The building of the Enterprise in the teaser is simply a parable to the new film's status as a fresh take on the franchise and/or a film that is still in production. Too many teasers nowadays are little more than footage from the finished film and I think that's where people are getting hung up here.

The original 'Star Trek' series is the only one I was ever interested in due to it's colourful and imaginative production design, interesting to watch actors, and excitingly atmosperic music.  It had a few laughably bad episodes throughout, but the great ones more than made up for them.  What came afterwards did not have the same appeal to me whatsoever, as the look and feel of things were totally different to the classic original series unfortunately.  I have fond memories of the 'animated' series too, and absolutely think of that as so-called 'canon' considering it had the majority of the original series 'production design' and actor's voices throughout. Happy

The first two 'Star Trek' movies are still worth a viewing, and Robert Wise's 'Director's Cut' of the first one is a big improvement on the rushed theatrical release.

It unfortunately seems that William Shatner, unlike Leonard Nimoy, will NOT be included in any way in the upcoming J.J. Abrams movie...  On top of this sacrelige of the makers not 'reviving' the character of a 'still surviving the odds' older Kirk, they've cast English comedian actor Simon Pegg as 'Scotty'!  Have these Yanks no soul?

KHHHAAANNNNN!!!! That might end up hurting the film. Who knows what movies will be announced for May 09 in the future. Those workers we seen in the teaser must be c**p builders, construction was supposed to be finished Christmas 08, now its May 09, I would be seeking replacements immediately.

Well "Wolverine" is supposed to be coming out the week before, so there's that, and then God knows what other Marvel comic they're going to churn out for release then.

And they wouldn't replace J.J. Abrams, he's God, he just made Cloverfield all by himself!

[/sarcasm]

26th July 2008 7:57
Any news on whether or not they're gonna re-release the Trek films on DVD/BR later in the year? Or would they have done that only had the film come out and then delayed them until May '09? And even then, would they wait and release it alongside XI on DVD/BR?

There's a lot of competition for Trek in 09. Still find it odd they made that decision.

I was browsing Cheddar and I found this rumour/news on a potential boxset. I have the ten movies in a set already so I couldn't reason getting it. Though I did replace Season 1 for the Remastered set.

My wallet needs a cash transfusion Sad

ALL GUESTS are contracted to appear and all convention contracts specify that appearances are tentative and subject to change as film and television work demands take precedence.

June 10, 2008: Louise Fletcher has advised us she is unable to appear. Any separate autograph or photo op tickets for Ms. Fletcher are being credited back to your card.

The vast majority of our guest celebrities take questions from the audience during their on-stage time. Therefore it is incumbent upon those that ask questions to make them ones that allow our mutual shared time with the celebrities to be enjoyable, interesting and entertaining for all (including the guest). Asking for hugs, telling stars we love them (we all do, that's why we're here), giving gifts (you can do this at photo ops), getting into long personal stories, or worse, is not acceptable for this format and, in fact, is quite self-centered when you are in essence "representing" all of fandom to a celebrity. Join us in trying to make this convention the best entertainment for everyone!

Thought I'd post my thoughts on the new trailer here then create a new topic. All I can say is WOW.

I was looking forward to seeing it before this but this new trailer really has me excited. And from the looks of things its enticing a lot of not trekkies, which will be good for business.

If you want a quick way to see it go to http://www.dvdactive.com/www.startrekmovie.com And when you enter the site it plays what sounds like new music from the movie.
