    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 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

    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.

    Actual lens flares in space so fuck you, JJ Abrams was right.

    @Jacksie66 one super powered guy. Kirk got battered.

    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!

    Didn't see the first one but the traielr for the second one looks well decent, mostly because of Sherlock Holmes.

    From the outside looking in its difficult to see it as anything other than a Chris Pine, cheesy, MURIKA type film though. The trailer for the first one was proper balls, which is why I didn't go and see it.

    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 ;)

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    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 :-)

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

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

    Has to be the original 'Warp: Factor' scale doesn't it. WARP NUMBER x c^3.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    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.

    Biggest disappointment is that they didn't use any of the James Horner score from WoK. I would have love it if that music had kicked in when Harrison was revealed as Khan, and perhaps some of the ship scrapping. Probably best they didn't though, the film was too much of a parody as it was.

    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.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    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
