    Well this looks like it's gonna be "Harry Potter in Outer Space" for the new Trek
    movie....Will definitely miss the premiere, maybe rent "Undiscovered Country"
    instead.

    Time to jump on the nearest GSV and head back over to the Culture...

    Uhh, they've done this for older ST movies/shows too. Like 15 years ago, when TNG was first airing, they had miniature Enterprises, Birds of Prey, etc. Hell I was watching TNG regularly when I was 7-8 years old. Star Trek isn't only for adults :hsugh:

    My brother lit the warp nessels of his Enterprise on fire. And the melting plastic dripped on my face :wtc:

    Burned me right between the eyes.

    Well that is part of the problem.......there are things that 30-40 year olds are
    interested in that are boring or unsuitable for teens to look at...

    I thought both "Solaris" films and "The Fountain"
    were great movies but I doubt a teen would like them...

    more news from Wired (shudder....)
    http://blog.wired.com/underwire/2008/11/abrams-previews.html


    "
    While four five-minute clips do not a movie make, it's safe to say that Abrams' Trek will be younger, brighter, busier and more frenetically paced than any previous incarnation. The performances are edgier and louder, but not better. The effects are spectacular and executed on a scale never attempted by any Trek film. And, while connected to Gene Roddenberry's creation, this film is deliberately and unquestionably built in its own universe -- constructing its story on the idea that the original Star Trek time line has been destroyed and must be reconstructed as closely as possible."

    Yes, another Trek time travel story (bad..) from JJ Abrams (worse...)
