Love that shot of the Enterprise (I think) hitting the water with the sun behind it.
meh. Frankly while I understand why they did the reboot its become a joke as regards believability.
Which was ALWAYS before THIS, Star Treks strongest trait
I know what you are saying, but it just looks funny in writing.
Japanese trailer shows a little bit more, most notably the very end with the Wrath of Khan tribute. People are confused now if this is tied into Khan or not, most were predicting the villain to be the obscure Gary Mitchell which even I had to look up to remember who that was.
Watch the end of this
yeah it does for those who are not real fans of Star Trek as it was in the beginning.
Gene Roddenbery did his very best to NOT do anything that was not at least theoretically possible in some manner for the technology; and then with common sense and logic with most other things.
Having a punk like this Kirk as captain frankly makes it a joke
whole crew of young know nothings as well
So your a Trekkie??
I find those comments short sided.
I've been a huge Star Trek fan all my life. When I was 7-8 years old, I was staying up to watch Star Trek TOS that came on at midnight and went off at 1am. The only series I never really got into was Deep Space Nine due to it came off extremely Soap Opera like.
I love the reboot.
As for Chris Pine (this punk as you put it) playing Kirk, I'm guessing you weren't such a big fan as you don't seem to know Kirk's back story. IMO, he is doing an awesome job.
Uhura (Zoe Saldana) is sexy as hell!
I agree with you, Sam. Chris Pine has got the mannerisms pretty well down from the original series. Kirk was always cocky, and somewhat of a punk, and Pine is making it work.
actually I clearly know Kirks back story- AS WRITTEN BY RODDENBERRY- much better then you do.
confident definitely, but your definition of a punk is pretty sad
Doesn't seem so. :laugh2:
Please enlighten me. What is "my" definition of a punk? How does my definition compare to yours? Does your definition of punk include happiness? Just curious how you came to your conclusions based off of my response.
of course someone who has never read Roddenberry's writings on this would think so.
IGNORANCE is bliss for those that don't bother to really look for the answers
obviously you have never read Websters definition. I should say the non PC websters definition.
I see. The modifying words "somewhat of a" before the word "punk" precludes a strict Merriam Websters Dictionary definition. I like Star Trek. It's one of my favorite SciFi series, but I admit, I have never read any of the novels. So, if you want to argue Roddenberry's writing of the original characters versus the reboot's new characters, I think I'll just pass.
One Kirk grew up with a father and the the other did not. That shaped the development of the character. The whole idea is there are supposed to be some differences and still some similarities between the two Kirks.
Gary Mitchell would be cool. Q 2.
