    On the Christmas Day next year the highly anticipated next Star Trek movie will be in cinemas Paramount Pictures announced yesterday! After cancelling the Star Trek: Enterprise series in March 2005, the mediocre space combat game "Star Trek: Legacy", which even die-hard trekkies found to be a bitter pill, and more than 4 years without a movie it was about time for someone at Paramount to make a decision.
    And like this another one decided to take the opportunity and to direct the upcoming motion picture: Jeffrey Jacob Abrams. J.J. Abrams, known for directing and producing Mission: Impossible III and the very famous and successful Alias and Lost series, teams up with the writers and producers Bryan Burk (Lost, Alias), Damon Lindelof (Lost, Crossing Jordan), Alex Kurtzman (M:i:III, The Legend of Zorro) and Roberto Orci (M:i:III, The Legend of Zorro).
    With all these experienced people working on it I am really interested if Star Trek XI will meet my expactations.

    I agree with that, seeing as from what I have heard it will be based in the time zone between STENT and STTOS. So hopefully there won't be any borg in it.

    I bet it's a mediocre action film like Mission Impossible III. They're going to try to make it more popular, but are really just going to alienate their rather large base audience. I don't think Star Trek is capable of going on without Gene Roddenberry. It did really well through the last few seasons of TNG, DS9 was rather good for about 3/4 of it, but was beginning to falter, and fall away from what Star Trek was. Voyager tried really hard to recapture it, and was ok for the first 1-2 seasons, but then it nose dived really quick. The Last movie, Nemesis, was horrible, and so was the last series, Enterprise. I couldn't even make it through and episode. Paramounts just squeezing the last few dollars out of what was once a really good franchise.

    Where did you get five? There are 10 movies and 5 series, so you're boldly going 15 times :laugh: .

    I think this one's about when Kirk was in StarFleet Academy still... prior to ALL of them.

    (I'm curious about it, 'semi-avid' trekkie here... no, not so much I like, put on "spock ears" & watch the series' or movies. I actually like the series (TOS/TNG/Enterprise) better than the films, personally))

    :)

    LOL, he's informing the "Sci-Fi" nerds crew that they/we have another "fix" in the works maybe?

    I agree though - films aren't REALLY news for computer tech, but, it's the thought that counts here, per what I stated above, imo @ least!

    I wish they'd do a movie with a joint DS9/Voyager cast, personally. At least have it in the time period where we might get a guest appearance by Admiral Janeway or have Odo suddenly appear out of nowhere.

    me too, but my wife has a theory that I'll watch anything with Star in the title, as in

    Wars
    Trek
    Gate SG1
    Gate Atlantis
    Battle**** Galactica.

    Her theory was technically ruined By Enterprise as it didn't actually have Star Trek in its name

    though, they did change the name to Stark Trek: Enterprise. Personally, I don't want a prequel. If we're going to try to refresh Trek, with a new audience, and keep the old, we need new characters, or at least a proper sendoff to TNG. Maybe even a film that actually ends the Dominion, which would involve a huge war, requiring the casting of TNG, DS9 and VOY crews. Scott Bacula will just have to wait for the feature length film of Quantum leap for the big screen.

    If they recast Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Sulu..etc, it's going to be hard for me, and other fans of the original cast to sit through the film, or even consider paying to go see it. Personally, if it's a prequel involving the original cast, I'll just wait till it's available on BT. I want forward motion. Recreate from the future, don't move backwards, it's going to be more difficult from a canon perspective to have to make sure you don't violate the history of the series of movies. Eh...I'm just tired of all this prequel crap. Casino Royale was good, but, think about it, the Bond films span decades, it's easier to reboot a character that never ages, you're pretty much required to with every new film.

    Insurrection was the last movie right? Didn't people not like Insurrection? Isn't that the theory with ST movies, something about every other one is bad.

    Voyager and Enterprise were my two favorite series. TNG had a lot of interest for me too. I never got into DS9 and well the original ST, makes me laugh.

    The movies though ive only see a few. And well games, never played any but Aramada II


    Tired of pre-anything. Stop remaking films and going back in time. In most cases, people don't care. Not to mention in most cases the future is more fun.

    Or if you are going to go with a pre, do it like Enterprise. Go WAY before whatever was the original show.

    Bridge Commander and Amarda II were probably the best games I ever played to do with Si-Fi, Bridge commander had loads of really good mods too. The last movie was Star Trek Nemisies, it had some clone of picard wanting to kill all humans.

    ENT was good, but ST:VOY and ST:TNG were the best. Hopefully they will have some nice klingon fights in this one, really big space battle would be nice with lots of ships, like in a lot of the DS9 shows :rockout:

    Nemesis was the last movie, I personally hated it.

    If the script is well written and they cast the characters right they COULD pull it off, but as an avid trek fan I have a feeling that I'm going to be as dissapointed with it as I was with ST: Legacy.
