    While I agree with you on the last two movies, I'm not sure how you can call Voyager and Deep Space Nine failures. They did not reach the popularity that TNG did, but they both lasted for 7 seasons and over 170 episodes, and always maintained solid ratings. I was not a big fan of DSN, but I loved Voyager and still enjoy watching it on Spike.

    Unless you are thinking of Enterprise, which I never got into and agree with you to a degree. It did last 4 seasons and 98 episodes, but always fought low ratings. I do remember it getting good reviews by the critics, but I think the franchise just needed a break by that time.

    Nemesis was an absolute joke though, and painful to watch being the big Trek fan that I am.

    Here is a link to the trailer for the new movie, for those who haven't seen it.

    Voyager and Enterprise survived for as long as they did because they were on UPN, anywhere else and it would have been over quick...of course Paramount running two trek series at the same time was an insane mistake.

    I just don't see how it works to try to cast people as younger versions of the original crew because there were such distinct mannerisms and accents. Even the deadpan Sulu.

    Two thumbs down. Is that Spock trying to kill Kirk at one point? yeah.....

    Then again, I'm a Star Trek fan, this movie isn't being made for me.

    I'm kinda psyched for this after seeing the trailer. My fiancee thinks it looks amazing, and the only Trek thing she's ever seen is VI, The Undiscovered Country, but she's a JJ Abrams fan.

    I figure Abrams can't screw it up worse than Berman et al. have over the past dozen years or so, so I'll give JJ the benefit of the doubt for now.

    Pretty much my thought. I'm no JJ Abrams fan, but anything has to be better than the crap they fed Star Trek fans for years under the Rick Berman regime.

    It's a telling sign that the only good things to come out of Star Trek since Gene Roddenberry died are the things he had nothing to do with (DS9 w/ Ira Steven Behr, and the last season of 'Enterprise' w/ Manny Coto).

    I agree. Not going to pan something I haven't really haven't had the opportunity to see yet.

    The whole concept of doing a movie about the beginning, concerning Kirk and Spock, is very intriguing.... as long as it's done right.

    The key is preserving the heritage and image that every Trekkie has ingrained into their psyche who and what these icons represent, and how they should be portrayed. If the movie strays too far, then it will upset a lot of fans.

    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Like Spock hasn't tried to kill Kirk before.

    It's a seperate time line, which we've seen before.
