    Yeah, that's basically what I was getting at. Just do a Star Trek Firefly. It would be amazing.

    It's a shame that they've created such a detailed universe, to then only explore it from the point of view of one organisation.

    And actually, if you're a low tech ship coming up against the kind of shit that TNG had to go against, it ups the drama massively.

    Battle Star Galactica did dark and gritty much better than Trek ever could or for that matter - should. DS9 got a dirty alright ( R D Moore style) but would then balance it out with loveliness.

    I think an animated series could be a laugh and a good way to test the waters!

    I doubt we'll ever see a 'proper' Trek show ever again as people are just not interested in it anymore . If we did see a show it would certainly follow the films look and feel.
    I don't understand what people are basing this view on when they say stuff like this, Stargate SG1 ran 10 seasons and spawned 2 DVD movies and would have done more if MGM hadn't had money problems, There is definately an audience for real Trek and with demise of SG1,Atlantis,Universe there is a gap for a space base adventure series.

    In fact the only reason they made these JJverse movies is the strength of feeling for 'proper' Trek imagery otherwise they could of just made their own generic space based movie

    I really wanted to love this but it just felt a bit...meh. My love of Trek meant I enjoyed it but I certainly don't feel it was as good as the last film.
    Sherlock was good as we're the effects. But due to them being so secretive about it all I'd feverishly hunted down spoilers and ruined it for myself. Sad face.
    The Klingons were pretty awesome Batleth!
    The klingons were shit in into darkness. I prefer the good ol' fashioned lads. Plus they all got wiped out fairly quickly by one guy.

    One genetically enhanced super human.

    I liked the re-design, piercings and lack of big hair.

    Some of them dd have long hair underneath their helmets; just the lead dude didn't.
    Hopefully we get proper klingon story next time; seems there were a few threads left dangling there.
    That being said the end of the film took place one year later!

    Love the design of the Enterprise in these movies. You get a real sense of power. Especially when it rises out of the sea at the start. Also liked the big fuck you to the prime directive at the start , "oh come on Spock, so they saw us. What's the worst that can happen?"

    Except Kirk lost his command over it and only got allowed to rejoin Starfleet due to Pike (and the plot), stopping Nero destroy Earth probably helped Pike out there.

    Yeah not saying there weren't consequences, it amused me the way they did it, old alien tribesman drawing very detailed plan view of starship!

    Indeed, with talents like that perhaps breaking the Prime Directive was worth it! They'll be working for Starfleet in no time designing ships.

    Isnt it just a straight choice between letting them see the ship and leaving the corpse of a dead alien behind? Neither is really win/win.

    Well they would have gotten into trouble anyway as saving the planet violated the directive too.
    Spock also got a reaming for the plan.

    Also did anyone else find it VERY odd how they got to Kronos in super fast time? And warped back from Kronos to Earth even faster!?

    I actually find the opposite odd - from some dialogue in Enterprise it should be insanely close at high warp. Too close, in fact, to the point I don't think the bit in Enterprise should be taken seriously. Or any of Enterprise ;)

    4 days away at warp 4.5 according to Memory Alpha! Using Enterprise as its basis so as Fawkes says you can probably ignore that. :-)

    As warp is a log scale that would mean at warp 5.5 it would only take 9.6 hours.

    That's right isn't it?

    It's a big Hollywood blockbuster and not a documentary :-)

    Well, they changed what warp speed was from the original series to next gen, so depending on which one they are following..

    Dunno why they bothered flying anyway. Just make a magic transport across the universe equation.

    Wish they had bloody discovered that in the pilot episode of Voyager. Would have saved a lot of hassle/boredom.
    I don't know why people are getting into minor hissy fits about this. It's explained in the filmIt's top secret, used by section 31 only and it comes from future Spock

    Butterfly effect init.

    For villains, teleporting technology is super easy and works perfectly 100% of the time, but for heroes it probably won't because the magnetic radiation particles are moving too fast or something

    More of a Star wars fan than I Trekie but I think they are fantastic.

    Though it would have had more integrity to keep Kirk dead even though I think he plays a brilliant part, or have a lesser character go through it
