Never been to a convention, but if he starts going to them, seems like a cool guy to meet:
http://www.treknews....rek-convention/

Not sure how he has much time with his TV show and movies. Not sure if the guy has had a bad role.

You poor soul.  The conventions are great.  I went the year the first new movie came out and ended up with a movie poster signed by Zachary Quinto (nice guy).

oooooooo YEAH!!!

 

Even though it's mostly recycled footage from the Pilot, it's nice to see the station in HD. 

 

and YES THERE ARE 4 LIGHTS!!!

 

 

One strange question though.... why didn't they release Time's Arrow or Descent?  I am sure they will release All good things as a single disc release.

For all you Massholes wanting to go to the con in Boston this summer, Groupon is selling 1 day tickets for $12 a pop. Regular price is $20.

Finally saw Into Darkness last night.  It was great.  I really love the casting they've done in these 2 movies.  I also loved the call backs to Wrath of Kahn - it was a fun popcorn sci-fi movie which is really all you need.

I think a good start would be TNG because it seems to be the most accessible

I just stumbled upon this likely total BS(I'm not familiar with the site but sounds like satire). But I'm posting the link because its something I can see CBS doing. Its based on about 65% of their lineup already!

I don't think anyone complains about the casting. JJ Abrams is a genius at casting, I think everyone can agree with that. Its the writing that makes us roll our eyes.

you know, as someone who watched all of TOS and TNG and a pretty good chunk of DS9 and Voyager, I dont see whats so bad about JJ's writing.  I like that theres a bit of a different spin to the Trek universe now.

If those are true it seems to indicate we'd be going back to the original time line considering they're talking about a Defiant class ship. I've always kind of hoped they'd go back to the original timeline so we could see a fallout from the destruction of Romulus (and yes, I've heard that there are novels that cover it).

Also, I'd just like to be able to watch Star Trek on TV again

It's not terrible, but it's also not very good.  It's different, I'll give it that, but much of the difference is that he takes established lore and puts it through a blender.  The result is very much like Voyager: pretty to look at, not much in the upstairs department, and been done before, better.

 

If Into Darkness is any indication where it's going, it's...alright, I guess?  Into Darkness really surprised me.  I was hoping to love it.  Then I saw it, and I logically realized it should cause me to nerdrage.  But the end result was a great big meh.  It was okay, though I don't think I ever want to see it again.

 

It was pretty and loud and occasionally fun and occasionally stupid.  It's a popcorn movie that is not so egregiously bad as a Michael Bay film, but it's also not terribly good, when it all comes down to it.  I liked the first hour.  Then it got increasingly silly and unbelievable.  Then it just started throwing so many things at the screen that my brain gave up.  When Spock was playing Frogger with Khan on the moving ships at the end, I threw in the towel.  I don't even want to talk about the reworking of Star Trek II's ending.  I won't call it emotional manipulation, though, because that takes some skill.  This was just dumb.

 

In the end: no, I don't like it.  Like Voyager, it defies analysis or criticism because there just isn't a whole lot of thought going into its production.  The plot is a hash with so many things that don't make sense that it's crazy to even try.  There is zero emotional resonance because I can't take any of it seriously enough.  They are attempting to tick off many checkboxes without bothering to see if the final product holds together or makes any sort of logical or emotional sense.  Too many checkboxes. 

 

And that's the problem with JJ's writing.  It's spectacle and it's fun, but there's no depth or heart.  It's about in line with the SW Prequels, except the acting's better and there aren't as many lines that are groaners.  I should be mad at it, but I guess I've decided it is not worth being mad at.  Like the SW prequels, it just isn't real to me anymore.  I can watch the original stuff and pretend the new stuff doesn't exist.

Well, JJ's people have said his original plan was to make a TV series if the movie made plenty of money. The TV show would be much more cerebral. Then CBS happened.

Good, just as long as we don't get another corny story like searching for god like ST5: The Final Frontier did.

 

I'd like to see them do a Borg story set in that universe.

That's easy. Remember the Narada in the first movie was a Romulan mining ship that was augmented with Borg tech.

At this point I really don't see why we need a connection to the original cast in the new movie.  The first movie did well with Spock Prime..now it's time for a more original story.

 

In other news TNG Season 7 BR will be out by December!   Then things go dark...... :(   Unless by some crazy turn of events they make a DS9 BR announcement...but that's just wishful thinking.

My guess? The Shatner comes to rescue The Nimoy. I believe he brought back Kirk in his books? They could run with that.

Lol, a new "budget" model from QMx($5000)


http://www.thetrekco...om-qmx.html?m=1

Some cost 10k. You have to be rich, or seriously obsessed. I would love to see one in person, that kind of craftsmanship has to look amazing

Frakes wants to direct Trek 3.

Someone started a twitter hash tag to support it.

Tweet #BringInRiker to @ParamountPics if you like the idea

Heard about it today too. Not sure how it's going to work. I like what Lin has done with the last few Fast N Furious films, and he's been involved with Community and True Detective, so this could be good.

Justin Lin is an excellent director and the Fast and Furious films are awesome thank you very much. Lin is a very broad director, despite him helming 4 of the last Fast films. Do yourselves a favor and look up a movie called "Better Luck Tomorrow" that he did; one of those overlooked indies he did when he just started out but it's been universally praised and definitely a great film for someone so new to the business at the time. He was actually supposed to take on the next Bourne film until they managed to get Greengrass back very recently.

Watching TNG Season 1 "The Battle" and data mentions "Xindi Starbase 9".

Interesting.
