    Default Star Trek

    So who's seen this already in the Thursday night preview showings? I was tempted, but I'll be going this weekend. I'm very excited. I'm not a big fan of Star Trek, I watched on and off The Next Generation and Deep Space 9 back in the early 90s as a teen and was fascinated, but never seen the original series nor any of the movies or the newer series. I just started watching TNG again on DVD and it's really nostalgic but also very good and interesting. And all indication is that this new film will be huge.

    And of course this only bodes well for the Dark Tower.

    Pretty perfect writing, direction, acting, effects, score, everything.

    i watched this last night, and oh my god it was fantastic

    the geek in me was in heaven due to old references but it also does not alienate new fans.

    it does not dwell on technology -so any clashes with the original series are not glaringly obvious.

    the actors that they chose were just brilliant.

    its safe to say i came home last night a very happy bunny indeed

    I have seen every single Star Trek episode there is out there, minus half of Voyager. Lost interest in the series at that time. However, I have seen every movie except the newest one. I guess that means you can't call me a Trekkie because it's not #1 on my list of things to get done

    Anyway, probably see it Monday night. Let the crowd die down a bit.

    I was planning on it tomorrow, but I forgot it is Mother's Day. Hmmmm..maybe I am a Trekkie if I put it above Mother's Day.

    OH...unless there's another thread, I have a question about Voyager. Did they ever make it home or did they end the series before?

    I was supposed to go yesterday but something came up with a friend so he couldn't go.
    Beyond the scope of light, beyond the reach of Dark. . . what could possibly await us?

    hey sarajean, will you be merging this thread?

    Nerkak - wasn't it just the best? sat there all the wa through with goosbumps (spoilt slightly by the snoring old fart behind me!!!)

    i just thought the actors they got to play the parts where spot on, both in looks and mannerisms with one VERY notable exception and as soon as you watch the film you will know who i am talking about

    Spoiler:
    The alternate time-line and time travel was very Lost/Dark Tower-like. With that and how I got into this movie without being a Trek fan I am now very excited about the Dark Tower movies being good.
