Re: It's official - Star Trek XI

Ok, I'm mixed. Happy the movie is coming out. But I would really like to see the STNG cast still produce movies. I guess I am hanging on to a dream.

Re: It's official - Star Trek XI

I'm one of those that would love to see something completely different -

Send us another 100 years into the future from TNG/DS9/STV....Borg have assimilated most of the Federation - and resistance fighters (led by Seven's daughter) trying to outrun and outsmart them.

I just don't like the prequel stuff.

One interesting rumor a few months ago - Matt Damon and Ben Affleck to play the young Kirk and Spock. The only problem is, Matt really is too old to play a TOS prequel Kirk.

Cool. Kevin Smith can play Scotty and Jason Mewes can play Chekov! :lmao:

They better pick good actors to be Kirk and Spock, one thing which I find interesting is the number of Star Trek fans who liked TOS/TNG/DS9/Voyager who didn't like Enterprise were quite small, and actually I know more people who wern't interested in the earlier series who liked the new one. :)

Personally I think a Enterprise movie would have been a better idea with all the action parts of the later part of the series, that interests people and might make a few more Trekkies out of people who arn't normally into Star Trek. :cool:

I truly believe Enterprise was poorly concieved. I would have prefered to see the early struggles with space travel. In one season we were back to phasers, transporters and shields. The computers and technology used in Enterprise were superior to Kirk's Enterprise by the final season and the introduction of the Borg was too much for me.

There was also not enough diversity on the ship. Why not throw in an exotic culture like Somians, Arabs or even Latinos? The cultural diversity of all the other series was extermely fascinating.

Distribution to UPN was also problematic in they could not schedule a standard time frame.

I still believe that TNG was the best of the series and I'd like to see more with DS9 crew.

I like all 6 series and all 10 movies.....yes, there were 6.....besides me, who can name all 6?

Only down side of a prequel with Kirk/Spock.....is that in the ST timeline, they were NOT at the Academy together, and there is no mention in any other series, or (so far as I know) any of the many books including novels.....so this is a departure from the timeline.....not sure even the Guardian can explain THIS one.....

I did like Enterprise, as it started with the basic trunk timeline, but then seemed to go off on a different timeline.....the ship was never the equal (in my opinion) of the Constitution class Enterprise that Kirk had.....but did introduce some things.....again, going outside the timeline for photon torpedoes.....in TOS (the original series) they were introduced in Balance of Terror, where we also meet Romulans.....

One thing for sure, it will be interesting to see how Paramount integrates the new movie into the Museum of the Future at ST:TE.....

Anyone open to planning a get together at ST:TE perhaps this fall?

Star Trek
Star Trek Next Generation
Deep Space Nine
Star Trek Voyager
Enterprise

What was the sixth one?

The Sci Fi channel is playing Enterprise on Monday evenings here via Time Warner.

In that series (now playing) I find it most interesting to note the progress that seems to be taking place for Vulcans.

Whatever its flaws, when Star Trek XI comes out I'll be there!
