With the new movie out, I'm curious to see what they might redesign the Enterprise-D and the Defiant to look like.

But they do still exist.


The new movie is a Parallel universe.


Still a funny strip though. I can totally hear Scott Bakula saying that.

If they gave Enterprise one more season, I swear you'd see Al pop up and talk incessantly about Ziggy.

That would have been truly epic had the Enterprise used her phasers.

And the sound design is all wrong, wrong, wrong.

Considering fans just got together and decided to make it, I'd say it was pretty good.

That's a challenge, if I've ever heard one...

>_>

But yes. After that knee-jerk reaction, I neglected to say that it was indeed a damn good presentation. Makes me wish they'd just greenlight a Kelvin TV spinoff already.

Yeah, I was way too harsh. For some reason, despite the date of the convention, I thought this was done after the movie was released. Since this was done before, of course they couldn't be all that accurate. But like I said, damn good little movie. Given the right scaling and cinematography, these guys could almost give ILM a run for their money!

let's start with TNG, arguablly the greatest thing in prefesser X's long history in front of a camera, and seven seasons (plus 3 movies) of pure orgasmic awsome. where is it? it is nowhere to be found unless i download or pay rediculous amounts for it.
tv.blinkx.com has TNG. I've been watching a few eps there lately, same for DS9, Voyager and TOS

2. The Enterprise goes to check up on a remote outpost of scientists, who are all perfectly all right.
3. The Enterprise comes across a Garden-of-Eden-like planet called Paradise, where everyone is happy all the time. However, everything is soon revealed to be exactly as it seems.
4. The crew of the Enterprise discover a totally new lifeform, which later turns out to be a rather well-known old lifeform, wearing a silly hat.
5. The crew of the Enterprise are struck by a strange alien plague, for which the cure is found in the well-stocked sickbay.
6. An enigmatic being composed of pure energy attempts to interface to the Enterprise's computer, only to find out that it has forgotten to bring the right leads.
7. A power surge on the Bridge is rapidly and correctly diagnosed as a faulty capacitor by the highly-trained and competent engineering staff.
8. A power surge on the Bridge is fails to electrocute the user of a computer panel, due to a highly sophisticated 24th century surge-protection feature called a "fuse."
9. The Enterprise ferries an alien VIP from one place to another without serious incident.
10. The Enterprise is captured by a vastly superior alien intelligence which does not put them on trial.
11. The Enterprise separates as soon as there is any danger.
12. The Enterprise gets involved in an enigmatic, stange, and dangerous situation, and there are no pesky aliens they can blame it on in the end.
13. The Enterprise is captured by a vastly inferior alien intelligence, which they easily pacify by offering it some sweeties.
14. The Enterprise is involved in a bizarre time-warp phenomenon, which is in no way connected with the 20th century.
15. Somebody takes out a shuttle and it doesn't explode or crash.
16. A major Starfleet emergency breaks out near the Enterprise, but fortunately some other ships in the area are able to deal with it to everyone's satisfaction.
17. The shields on the Enterprise stay up during a battle.
18. The Enterprise visits the Klingon Homeworld on a bright, sunny day.
19. An attempt at undermining the Klingon-Federation alliance is discovered without anyone noting that such an attempt, if successful, "would represent a fundamental shift of power throughout the quadrant."
20. A major character spends the entire episode in the Holodeck without a single malfunction trapping him/her there.
21. Picard hears the door chime and doesn't bother to say "Come."
22. Picard doesn't answer a suggestion with "Make it so"!
23. Picard walks up to the replicator and says, "Coke on ice."
24. Counsellor Troi states something other than the blindingly obvious.
25. Mood rings come back in style, jeopardizing Counselor Troi's position.
26. Worf and Troi finally decide to get married, only to have Kate Pulaski show up and disrupt the wedding by shouting, "Did he read you love poetry?! Did he serve you poisonous tea?! He's mine!"
27. When Worf tells the bridge officers that something is entering visual range no one says "On screen."
28. Worf actually gives another vessel more than two seconds to respond to one of the Enterprise's hails.
29. Worf kills Wesley by mistake in the holodeck. (Pity this wasn't done in "Cause and Effect" then we could have seen it five times without rewinding the tape!)
30. Wesley Crusher gets beaten up by his classmates for being a smarmy git, and consequently has a go at making some friends of his own age for a change.
31. Wesley saves the ship, the Federation, and the Universe as we know it, and everyone is grateful (including the 'Net).
32. The warp engines start playing up a bit, but seem to sort themselves out after a while without any intervention from boy genius Wesley Crusher.
33. Wesley Crusher tries to upgrade the warp drive and they work better than ever.
34. Beverly Crusher manages to go through a whole episode without having a hot flash and getting breathless every time Picard is in the room.
35. Guinan forgets herself, and breaks into a stand-up comedy routine.
36. Data falls in love with the replicator.
37. Kirk (or Riker) falls in love with a woman on a planet he visits, and isn't tragically separated from her at the end of the episode.
38. The Captain has to make a difficult decision about a less-advanced people which is made a great deal easier by the Starfleet Prime Directive.
39. An unknown ensign beams down as part of an away team and lives to tell the tale.
40. Spock or Data is fired from his high-ranking position for not being able to understand the most basic nuances of about one in three sentences that anyone says to him.
41. Kirk's hair remains consistent for more that one consecutive episode.
42. Kirk gets into a fistfight and doesn't rip his shirt.
43. Kirk doesn't get into a fistfight.
44. Kirk doesn't end up kissing the troubled guest-female before she doesn't sacrifice herself for him.
45. Scotty doesn't mention the laws of physics.
46. Spock isn't the only crew member not affected by new weapon/attack by alien race/etc due to his "darn green blood" or "bizarre Vulcan physiology" and thus he cannot save the day.
47. The episode ends without Bones and Kirk laughing at Spock's inability to understand the joke, and he doesn't raise his eyebrows!

Rotten Tomatoes calls new Star Trek Best Remake/Reboot of the Decade:

In a decade filled with the return of iconic franchises, Star Trek went from Impulse Drive to Warp 9 (too easy?) with both critics and audiences with its reboot this year. When J.J. Abrams signed on to take the helm of the Star Trek franchise with a group of new faces taking on the roles of the timeless Enterprise crew, little did we know that the blockbuster film would go on to be one of the best reviewed movies of the year.

While film after film has taken us forward with the voyagers of the Starship Enterprise, Star Trek was a true origins story that wasn't geared towards Trekkies, too simple for fans of the show, or too complex for newbies. Star Trek delivered a visually stunning brand of mainstream entertainment that propelled the series back not only back into theaters, but the public consciousness. However, the movie had some stiff competition, going up against the son of Mr. and Mrs. Bond and a man in a bat suit, amongst a number of others but its broad appeal and ability to recruit a whole new generation of Star Trek fans make it the Best Reboot of the Decade.

Star Trek broke all kinds of physics, but it's oh so damn damn good. Awesome.

That's not saying much.

I cannot stand reboots. Cannot. Due to Star Trek's ability to run parallel universes, Star Trek (2009) wasn't exactly a reboot in the traditional sense, but from a business stand point, that's exactly what it was. Reboots do very little to advance the narrative of a work, and to me, serve no purpose consequently (I know movies can be solely for entertainment, and I can appreciate such an idea, but when they sacrifice the narrative to do so, such isn't palatable for myself).

I finally gave in and watched the latest Trek movie. It was a well crafted movie in every respect except for the one I hold most dear (story; in this instance, related to character development). This wouldn't have been as insulting if the subject involved was not Star Trek - a series with infinite possibilities in which to expand from, or make a fresh break and start something with completely new characters, in a new setting. You literally could have changed the names of every character involved and maintained the story, so really, it being a reboot was purely for financial ends. Not impressed (unless the point of your story is fatalism, at which point I'm not interested).

So yeah, reboots suck. Mostly flash, very little substance. It is purely a device to make money, and thus takes away from the artistic merit for many (me in this instance) of film making. It's commercialized art at best; fan-fictions that got green lit in hopes to cash in on the type of marketing that money can't buy.

And for what it's worth, it didn't recruit new Star Trek fans. That's like saying pedophiles can recruit more fans for child pornography by raising the age of the actors to that of 18, and only have them played by willing participants. It changed the definition of a Star Trek fan to make it more palatable for the masses.

random question of the day: what's your favorite alien race? i'm going with hirogen because they can introspectivly converse with you and make you shit yourself at the same time.
Major race: Cardassians. They are the 24th century villians like the Klingons were in the 23rd. Anyone ever notice how the war in DS9 pitted the newer created races of the Dominion, cardys & Breen against TOS era races. Or did I just not ever notice that for 10 years.

Minor race: Breen. They kinda always reminded me of the Vorlons from Babylon5. I'd like to have seen more of them. They like the Tholians werent ever used enough.

Also liked the Orions & Sheliak from one episode of TNG.

random question of the day: are tribbles as effing annoying to you guys as they are to me?
No. They are awesome. I grew up with that episode, always one of my favs, they are like the wookies of Trek.

Newest movie? Not much a fan. I felt that the story pacing was too rushed, the special effects & sound effects were horrible, & honestly, every bad thing I have ever said or heard/read about the two Transformers movies, IMO can also apply to ST11. I also do not like origin movies. Honestly, I do not think it is much better that ST:TMP. & the worst part IMO was having Leonard Nemoy in it & making a parallell universe instead of just putting it in between the final episode & TMP, or between the Cage & TOS.
