The "New" Star Trek USS Enterprise 1701 Crew
Sunday, October 19, 2008

ADVERTISEMENTS


Captain's Log Supplemental Stardate -315799.89

Anton Yelchin as Chekov, Chris Pine as James T. Kirk, Simon Pegg as Lt. Montgomery Scott, Karl Urban as Dr. McCoy, John Cho as Sulu and Zoe Saldana as Uhura.

I didn't get excited when the new Star Trek prequel was announced. First it was a prequel and we all know that Kirk's crew survived even through the The Next Generation era. Second, since some of the original actors are dead and this is a prequel, new and younger actors will be used. Third, it's being directed by JJ Abrams. Put them all together and you'll have a new Transformers-like movie. It (will) suck.

Star Trek is a science fiction film directed by J. J. Abrams, written by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, and produced by Damon Lindelof and Bryan Burk. It is the eleventh Star Trek film and features the main characters of the original Star Trek series, who are portrayed by a new cast. It follows James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) enrolling at Starfleet Academy, his first meeting with Spock (Zachary Quinto), and their battles with evil Romulans from the future, who are interfering with history. The film is scheduled to be released on May 8, 2009 in North America and the United Kingdom.

Sure the enemy is a Romulan from the future, but the Star Trek universe has this thing called the Pogo Paradox. We all know that none of the cast will die so where's the excitement? Example is the awesomest Star Trek movie I've watched, Star Trek First Contact:
In 2373, a Pogo paradox resulted as a Borg sphere attempted to prevent the launch of humanity's first warp ship, the Phoenix by traveling back in time to the year 2063. The interference was halted by the actions of the USS Enterprise-E, and history was restored.


The old Spock can travel back in time... cool. But why not revive Kirk? Kirk has been revived countless times and don't forget the Genesis Project. They revived Spock with that right? SO WHY NOT INCLUDE KIRK?!
William Shatner wanted to appear as the old Kirk, despite the death of the character in Star Trek Generations. He suggested the film canonize the novels where Kirk is resurrected, but Abrams argued, "You and I could come up with dozens of ways [to resurrect Kirk], but every way that we came up with felt like it was transparently fanboys trying to get Shatner in the movie." Nimoy disliked the character's death in Generations, but felt resurrecting Kirk would also be detrimental to this film. Shatner added he wanted to share Nimoy's major role, and did not want a cameo. Nichelle Nichols was offered a cameo as Uhura's ancestor.

Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner are old. This is probably the last time we may see them wear their jumpsuits so why deny us that opportunity? Bryan Singer made a cameo in the last Star Trek Nemesis movie and boy I was excited. All along I thought that the directing job of the next Star Trek film will be given to him, but what did Paramount do? They gave the franchise to a guy who made me sick after watching Cloverfield.

The movie will suck. But as a true Star Trek junkie, I'll still watch it. Not because I think the movie may rock, but because Winona Ryder plays Spock's mom :~)

I wonder if this trailer could be streamed on the vcast tv for for the Motorola Krave? I became a huge fan of the krave recently when I started working with Motorola. I especially like the touch screen display. Has anyone else seen the speaks and features at motorola.com/krave? It's crushing the competition
