Actually, it was. Reaching back into the geekdom of my childhood, I distinctly recall the dedication plaque on the bridge saying "San Francisco". If the ship was built in orbit, it would be odd for it to say "San Francisco" and not merely "Earth".

And now I'll go kill myself for even knowing that much about Star Trek.

Since Califonians so hate the automobiles made in my neck of the woods, I have decided that I will be boycotting all things California.

I will only be watching Bollywood movies and will not be eating any California produce.

Sure, it's called creative license. They've got the rights to the property, they can do whatever they want with it. You think that all these other recent reboots (Batman, Bond, Transformers, etc.) don't deviate from the source material a bit?



What? Is that legal?

2008-11-18T19:02:00.000-05:00

No, primarily because it's not a prequel, just a re-imagining, or reboot, or whatever Hollywood is calling it these days...

2008-11-18T17:09:00.000-05:00

My question is... if they're going to do a prequel containing a star ship we've all seen from the 60s, are they going to show the instrument panel as a bunch of blinking squares and buttons?



So that's what that was.

2008-11-18T16:41:00.000-05:00

So that's what that was.

2008-11-18T15:50:00.000-05:00

Funny thing is, in the original Shatner series, Kirk doesn't know how to drive a stick shift car.

For a man who claims to not be a big Star Trek fan, you sure know the intimate details. Anyone who calls out series continuity errors have got to be addicts.

2008-11-18T12:54:00.000-05:00

As a legit Star Trek fan (Haley, I hear your vagina collapsing like a quantum singularity!) I can say that I am NOT enthused by this trailer.

THis doesn't mean the movie will suck, it means only tha the trailer is MTV-cut, shaky-cam nonsense. It's 2 minutes of flash. I am still 99% in the dark on this movie. Maybe another trailer will explain more.

But my hopes are low on this being good. And I LOVE the Original cast.

Zaphod versus Han?

Talk about a Sophie's Choice conundrum. I throw my hands up!

2008-11-18T10:23:00.000-05:00

And the Enterprise was not built on Earth goddamnit!

More outsourcing of labor, I see.

Who was the greatest starship captain of all time?

Han Solo. Jean Luc had a conscious, and Beeblebrox was funny, but not great. I mean, Solo did make the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs, after all. And I bet not every starship captain could do that.

2008-11-18T08:14:00.000-05:00

Also, there aren't any ravines like that in Iowa.,

Maybe he wasn't on earth. Plus, the ravine looked like a quarry.

And the Enterprise was not built on Earth goddamnit!

Stupid humans, continue to import everything in the future. What Lockheed or Boeing couldn't build the damn thing?



Who was the greatest starship captain of all time?...

2008-11-18T08:04:00.000-05:00

Who was the greatest starship captain of all time?

Curse you and your nerd baiting, Bob. The answer of course, is Zaphod Beeblebrox from "Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy." Do not attempt to debate Rickey on this!

Chris: Funny thing is, in the original Shatner series, Kirk doesn't know how to drive a stick shift car. Also, there aren't any ravines like that in Iowa. Whoops. And the Enterprise was not built on Earth goddamnit! Rickey declares this Star Trek remake to be an unmitigated disaster of epic proportions!

2008-11-18T00:19:00.000-05:00

There better be a running joke in the film where Spock makes fun of Kirk because he's still paying off the car he stole and crashed as a kid.

2008-11-17T23:09:00.000-05:00

I am a Star Trek fan, but only from the Next Generation forward.

This could bring me back to the James Kirk series, if done well.

Now it's time to start the greatest battle among all nerds:

Who was the greatest starship captain of all time?

I vote for Jean-Luc Picard.

2008-11-17T22:34:00.000-05:00

I cant say I really liked Battlestar Galactica, I want to see the rest of it I've seen up to the end of the second series. But it never hooked me. Star Trek I'll probably enjoy it, but theres few things that are better than Stargate.

Specifics? Well, start off with a blender. To the blender toss in soy milk, a spoonful of greek yogurt, one banana, some frozen berries, and whey powder. Hit liquefy. Presto, an awesome smoothie.

2008-11-17T19:42:00.000-05:00

I am not at all a Star Trek fan but the Trailer looks like the movie could be ok.

Also give me some specifics on the fruit smoothies recipe from several posts ago please.
