I was just watching Into Darkness last night and I was thinking about how 1 movie every few years isn't enough.  Of course, some of the actors in the movie seem like strictly movie only actors but oh well...

A month ago I saw some discontinued trek ships selling for stupid money and started researching the market for trek collectables, ships are where the value and market is. I havent bought anything trek that isnt a video or game since I was eight. I had no interest. Thats what led me to this.

Anyone seen this?

http://www.startrek-.../usa/faqs.html#!prettyPhoto

I saw some detailed pics of the ones released in the UK and the ships look incredible. Look at the Aztec pattern.

http://m.ebay.com/it...av=SEARCH&sbk=1

They are releasing in the US in the next few weeks. If you bought all of them (70 planned already, they suggest more may be added) it would be at least $1400.

Some of the discontinued Hot Wheels ships that are smaller, and less have detail sell for 50-100+ on eBay.

I'm wondering how much the long term gifts will run. You will HAVE to subscribe for 18 months for one, which would be a $720 cost @ 2 ships a month at $20 each.

That's insane. But then again I could see it selling for $150 in the future.

s.


I've seen them through another forum and decided that it isn't worth the subscription to me. They look absolutely gorgeous of course.

Sounds to me like an attempt to drum up interest, and possibly to get angry nerds to tell CBS how stupid they are.

 

If Orci is involved, I'm not interested and I'd actually go so far as to hope it fails. He's a douchebag, and you need look no further than Hawaii 5-O to see what Trek could turn into.  I watched that show because Grace Park was such a badass in BSG, and she's completely wasted on a show that makes her boring and gives main characters the barest hints of idiotic and mind-numbing "development" that goes nowhere.  No thanks.

We've already had a taste of it with the clip of the junkyard scene from "Unification" in the trailer, but the fifth season will mark the debut of CBS Digital's brand new re-tooled Enterprise CGI model. Due to the increase in complexity of many of the ship shots in Season 5 alongside a number of instances were elements could not be found, the team had to go back to the drawing board and re-vamp their CG model. The results are nothing short of breathtaking, and we're very excited to see the finished product along with fan reaction to the newly rendered shots.

 

 

 

hmmm...I am really curious if they are going to recreate every enterprise explosion via CG or make it have more punch... I honestly thought they did a good job timing the moments of the ship and composting the explosions back in the day.

I think I am getting tired of Trekcores SD/HD videos of TNG HD.

Yes we get it , the colors are more vibrant than ever.  However the focus should be more on the effects.

Agreed! It was slightly disappointing during the events they had in theaters because some of it wasn't any different than the DVD box set I have.

Well to be honest with you, I read somewhere that the Fanthom events are sent via satellite to the theaters so there is no reel..  From what I remember seeing I saw a windows desktop projected on to the screen.  The picture quality was below standards for BOBW and there was some weird purple fringing around some of the characters.  I checked and it looks like there will be do Reunification event this month either.  I guess there isn't a demand to have TNG on the big screen.  However I am glad I was able to go to 2 out of 3 events.

The Season 5 BR review is up

2 mins of upscaled footage...ouch..but from what the review says it doesn't sound that bad.

 

They fixed the phaser beam coming from the torpedo launcher from Darmok!!

Even when that first aired I was like "ummm huh???"

They didn't give any more kick to the enterprises blowing up in Cause and Effect :(

 

but overall looking good!!!

I remember seeing a Windows error message pop up on screen before Best of Both Worlds. That was the only issue we saw during the screening. But yeah, the picture quality wasn't what they were making it out to be. It is sad that there's not a demand for more TNG events. I went to all 3 and was so hopeful for a 4th event. Ah well. The three events were fun and memorable. :)

Anyone reading the Khan comics based on Into Darkness? I'm guessing that the answer to the different look is cosmetic surgery or something.

My prob with the comics is they could easily put some of that missing info into the movies without alienating the NuTrekers.

Like the Narada was modified by Borg tech. Watching the movie I was like " uhhh....how did a ROM civy get his mining ship to be so deadly?"

In movie add two lines

New Spock: "Are all Romulan mining ships so well armed in the future?"

Old Spock: "Desperate, the Romulans were driven to embrace a dangerous cybernetic based technology stolen from a genocideal cybernetic race"
.....


Would that have been so hard?

I didn't even catch this until now.  Apparently CBS has greenlit a made-for-tv movie set around the Equinox from Star Trek Voyager.  No mention if it's the new movie universe or they're going back to the old one(I hope so).

 

 

Fifteen years after the destruction of the USS Equinox (approximate star date 2393) Captain Rudy Ransom, who was beamed from his doomed ship by the Krotownans, is held prisoner in the Delta quadrant for crimes against the race including trespassing in Krowtownan space and the deaths of Krowtown Crew members. Captain Ransom has very few choices but one chance to return to the Alpha Quadrant some 30.000 light years away.

It's supposed to air sometime in 2014 and if it's popular enough, it'll get made into a series.

I don't believe it.  Source?  I found a board that says its a fan-made project, which I think is much  more likely, but that's not proof for or against.

 

I find it extremely dubious that the next televised Trek will be some obscure Voyager spin-off.

Yeah, kinda misread it.  It's something being produced that for TV(no mention of CBS, although wouldn't Paramount have to give it's approval for this to get made?).

Complete series set on BD for Enterprise, coming on 04/01/14 (it is a Tuesday, so it's a legit release date):

 

http://www.amazon.co...m=ATVPDKIKX0DER

 

Found it on Blu-Ray.com:

http://www.blu-ray.c...-Blu-ray/93126/

 

$307.99 at the moment, retails for $439.99.

 

Might not be worth it since the single season sets have been less than $77/season by no small amount.  I doubt it'll release for that price, though unless it gets down to $200 or so by release date, it likely won't be worth picking up.

 

S1 lowest price to date: $35.34 (Amazon)

S2 lowest price to date: $52.34 (Amazon)

S3 releases on 01/07/14

S4 releases on 04/01/14

Oh yeah. CBS/paramount have repackaged movies and series ( into cherry picked episode sets) about 3 times in the last 5 be years while adding zero new content. I am surprised DS9 never got a box set, or dominion war set(seasons 5-7 with a few of the 1-4 important episodes).

Although I'm not a fan of TV show apparel, the red one is pretty funny.

Probably CBS just milking it rather than spending anything more. They have showed the fans that is their only interest in the rights to it. Milk it dry rather than produce new product at a risk.

I doubt Frakes and Sirtis have passed much if anything up. They seem to be the torch carriers for everything after TOS. The only ones that have repetivitely said they would do another series at the drop of a hat.

Spiner seems to be going through the Nemoy type phase of "get away from Trek". Maybe he will swing back around later and realize its not a bad thing like Nemoy did.

Good news guys: Amazon just renewed their CBS contract for r Prime steaming. Since it includes the latest content, TNG remaster is up to season four on AP streaming;

Hulu is still only at the first two in HD, and I think Netflix still has none of TNG in HD. Not completely sure though. I'm hoping Netflix renews next year after 7 comes out

What would you guys recommend for a Star Trek newb to get into the series by? I'm not wanting to go nuts since it's a vast series and I don't have the time to see everything but just anything that could introduce me to the lore more. I have only seen the two most recent films that Abrams did (and loved those) and that's as far as I've got. I swear I've never seen one episode of any of the shows nor any of the other movies. I have Netflix too in case that helps since I noticed a few of the television shows are on it.

I would start with TNG. I like TOS as well but since you saw the reboot movies I'd go with something fresh.

Warning: the first 2 seasons of TNG aren't that great(some episodes are absolutely terrible), but should be watched anyways.

I would also skip Voyager except for a few select episodes that are actually really good. Enterprise is a mixed bag, but really finds it's stride in season 3.
