After watching through the 2009 version, I felt uneasy about the unwarranted scene with Kirk and green lady. The plot line itself was both unoriginal and uninteresting. Oddly enough, however, I have high hopes about Into Darkness... :P

 

:s:

 

It wasn't just that scene...but anyway, I would rather not talk about that. :no:

 

I think Into Darkness might be better because the trailers imply that Kirk is going to get a moral comeuppance, and also because the story is free of the college-kid stuff. It seems we will see more of Kirk on the bridge fighting bad guys (what he's good at) instead of being messed up.

Assuming the latest video game's been released, has anyone managed to work out a deck plan of the JJprise yet?

 

 

...not even converted the maps?

Well, I guess I'm not going to watch the new movie. The last one already annoyed me enough; the thing is, I am not all too happy with the new timeline, and the movies' action level is just too high for me to be able to watch them without a voice at the back of my mind going all "this isn't Star trek, this isn't Star Trek..."

 

Although of course, the series are already kinda old, and back when things were different. Storytelling was different. And from what I've heard about the new movies I guess they fit in with todays' story telling methods. Generally, I feel movies have become more violent, whether that's a good thing or not I don't know, I just don't like how different the approach is to modern story telling. Then again, a movie with a story line like "We're now going to save everyone diplomatically in spaaaace." would maybe be 'boring', and not really work these days, who knows. :shrugs:

 

~~~

Voyager, from what I've watched, is essentially watered down TNG with less interesting characters, more techno-babble and a psychopathic madwomen for a captain. It's not a bad show, not really, but neither is it a good one.

... I liked Captain Janeway a lot. :/

I've heard that the new movie is pretty good, or at least passable. While I didn't much care for the 2009 one, I still plan on seeing it in theaters if I can.

 

Modern movies tend to focus on fancy graphics and exciting, action-packed scenes. Star Trek didn't focus so much on action as it did on being thought-provoking; some of the most famous episodes are the ones that make you sit back and think once the episode is done. I guess the average person doesn't find that very entertaining anymore.

 

I thought Voyager was pretty good. My favorite, though, was DS9.

I think it's time to give this old gal a bump. Any new STO players on here at all? I've been playing for about a year now and it's a really fun (if glitchy) game.

Also rewatched all of Enterprise and I loved it. Season 3 was fairly awful (I only made it a few episodes in then just wiki'd the "important" episodes, plot-wise, and just watched them) but all the other seasons, especially the first and fourth, were brilliant.

Shame they never got the chance to implement the NX-01 refit plan for season 5 to bring it closer to the TOS Enterprise. Just got a model kit of that ship, and it would have looked so awesome in the show.

I have also been slowly collecting the Voyager DVDs; I've got seasons 2, 3, and 4 so far. They're both hard to find and extremely expensive.

Unsure about new players, but I'm still there hanging with friends, usually. :P

Yes I found you online the other day at the tailor. :P

Meant to ask, a few friendsand I want to make our own fleet and we need a fifth person. Would you be willing? You don't need to actually be in the fleet once it's made, we're just short one person to start it.

I waste tons of time messing with outfits too lol... and all my officers need to match, so yeah. It doesn't help that my computer likes to crash when I use the tailor, though.

Awesome, thanks. Hopefully we can all get on at the same time at some point
