To boldly go where... wait, we've been there  
I'm a little bummed that the new Star Trek movie is going to be about Kirk and the original series—not a fan. Actually, that's not true. I really dislike TOS and never could bring myself to watch more than 5 minutes of it.

Anyway, I think they should go into the future (post TNG/DS9). I also think Lucy Liu should be cast as the captain.

That would be hot.

Hahaha nice photoshops! I am the same exact way. Pretty much loathe TOS but love everything after. The TOS crew movies are good to me as well, some more than others. I was hoping for another TNG+ movie but oh well. I'm going to try to stay optimistic about this movie. I mean Enterprise was set farther in the past than TOS and they made it look good.

that's true. the movies weren't pretty good. I'm just not the hugest fan of Kirk/Shatner (although love him as Dennie Crane). Still, having someone else play him is just weird.

At least it's something though. Now, for a new series....

lol yea :)

I think just about every fan is sighing at them going back to the orginal series...they need to get a freakin clue and give us something new instead of this going back shit. After Enterprise you would think they would know what we want.

yeah, i dunno what they're thinking. they also really need to appeal to the mainstream and not just the fanboys. I think TOS is going to definitely have much more of a niche fan base than something totally new.

They originally intended it to be set during the Earth-Romulan wars. While I am lukewarm about TOS, liking it more than you I should say, I am not too fond of a story set in their academy days...with new actors. There can only be one Spock. One Kirk.

I wouldn't mind a new series depicting Federation life post dominion war.

> I wouldn't mind a new series depicting Federation life post dominion war.

That would be cool.

I have no idea why they're trying to go back in time with different actors playing... argh. it's just annoying. It would be like having someone else play Picard or Sisko—that would be blasphemy. So I can totally see why TOS fans would be pissed.

ok I think I just totally nerded out.

That's essentially what I meant. I hated Voyager's ending...I needed more than a fleet sheets heading off to Earth.

points for going with a minority, but i think it would just end up with her being a "captain kirky-sleeping-with-a native-of-eachplanet" interstellar trollop.

Fanboy Nirvana, Part 2: Star Trek Memorabilia for Sale

From Oct. 5 to 8, Christie's auction house in New York will be selling off more than a thousand Star Trek mementos — everything from Vulcan jewelry to Captain Kirk's tear-away gold jerseys, the Associated Press reports. The merchandise, spanning four decades of the sci-fi hit and its myriad spin-offs, is valued at nearly $2 million. In other words, the hand-me-downs are worth their weight in dilithium crystals. Speaking of Trek, Sci Fi has acquired the rights to Enterprise and plans to begin airing the Scott Bakula prequel this fall. Even more exciting (well, maybe only to me), as part of its deal with CBS Paramount Domestic Television, the cabler also now owns Kindred: The Embraced (the vampire soap opera starring the late, great Mark Frankel) and Wolf Lake (the werewolf soap opera starring the thankfully alive-and-well Sharon Lawrence).
