Hello. Just wanted to say 'hi'.
I am a life and series long fan of Star Trek (watched it first at 8 years old in 1966). I agree with the 'WOW' on the new film. I find the changes in canon, NOT to coin a phrase 'fascinating'. In an interview with JJ Abrams he spoke of how the relationship between Uhura and Spoke was hinted at in TOS. I have been rewatching season one, and I can see what they saw. The scene in Man Trap where Uhura sort of 'flirts' with Spock is the best example. Who knows, with any of us, if we had chosen the 'right' door instead of the 'left' where that would have led us? This new Spock has more emotion crackling beneath the surface, and smoldering in those deep, dark eyes. Perhaps Mom had a little more influence in this timeline?
I am glad the movie has had such a grand reception and am thankful it has breathed new life into this wonderful galaxy of characters.
I wonder if the writers were trying to show a relationship between Uhura and Spock because in the OS neither of them had shown an attraction to anybody, other than when they were under the influence of an alien of some sort.
I just saw the movie and WOW!!!! The only thing I didn't care very much for was the thing between Spock and Uhura kissing. Whats up with that? It kind of makes you wonder what happened to this relationship between this movie and the original series. Oh well, I guess thats what they make sequels for.
Star Trek Lives!
The battle cry of all Trekkies in the early and mid-70's is back. I'm so glad that it does, too.
Saw the film yesterday and I, too, was not disappointed. Character portrayal and writing are top-flight.
I bet Sulu never forgets to disengage external inertial dampers again!
I have only two nits to pick:
I REALLY wanted to see how they got the Enterprise from the ground into orbit.
The score... I wanted my "Enterprise fanfare!" Hearing it in the last minute of the film was a bummer.
Okay okay okay... maybe three nits... there were a couple plot moving devices used by the writers I didn't agree with.
But, overall, I'd pay money to go see it again... and probably will!
A well-done JJ Abrams sequel can not come fast enough!
Star Trek, indeed lives!
Hi everyone. I just noticed that the settings on this group were set to default as needing to be screened before they would appear. Sorry about that. I've fixed it.
Thank you all for joining. Check out the forum discussions when you have a chance. We might need to start some new topics since the movie will be coming out in a couple of weeks. Feel free to jump on in.
Oh dear, Okay, well its the actor George Takei that is homosexual. The character, Hikaru Sulu, is not necessarily. Its never been established in any of the books, episodes, or movies that I have been exposed to.
n Star Trek: Generations, we meet Demora Sulu, Hikaru's daughter. Of course, that doesn't mean that Sulu, the character, is straight....
Hello Amy,while I was trying to round some people up to come here a e-mailed one of the members who just asked me where it is.Since I do not remember how I got here maybe you could tell her,I might?have googled star trk heck if I know how I got here,except if I really want ton I can do it(twice sometimes) Comment interalien progeny -abomination,suffer thru out their whole lives because of it-embrace it,are all the more beautiful because of it,and who would have what point of view?Also I did think even as young as I was they made it clear Sulu prefrered men.
I am ready how about someone else,many topics,absolute power-corrupts? ,makes it ok to think of yourself as a god as long as your intentions are good? Oh I am getting old I can not remember what it is called-what China did for a long time-isolation-not letting outside influences in.2 aliens of different species having a child-good?,Bad? Like there isn't anything to talk about
