The voyages of the Starship Enterprise continue:
First set photos from the ‘Star Trek’ sequel
It's Spok vs Sherlock!
I can't wait for this to come out.
I'm as giddy as a school girl here.
YAY!!! "So Very Tired" photos! Was about time, I was fearing that ST12 would never come. Wanna see more!
I did not consider that.....I like the way your mind works here.
That's an interesting prospect. Certainly would explain a few details about what's shown in the photos.
I read a little on Gary Mitchell on Memory Alpha, but still don't understand how that makes any more sense than, say, Finnegan showing up and beating up the Enterprise crew. Can y'all share what I'm missing?
Well that episode (one of the extreme few TOS I've seen most of) suffers from Early Installment Weirdness. In that it has naturally psychic humans, an idea only shown in that episode (a TNG episode had genetically engineered ones). To my knowledge anyway. Thing is Gary Mitchell get zapped with something (half dead Q in one novel I read) that makes his brain and body evolve at a huge accelerated rate, giving him Q like powers. Meaning he could punch out Spock and take a phaser blast to the face at close range.
Still I'm probably wrong.
As I recall from the episode, the Enterprise was trying to navigate the Galactic barrier that is around the outside of the Galaxy. The energies where able to pass into the ship and had an unusual effect on certain people with high "esper ratings" giving them all sorts of mental abilities.
At any rate, seeing as the guy in the photo appears to be human, and he seems to be overpowering Spock, something must have given him a major strength boost.
So they are finally making a sequel to Star Meh...
Hopefully this one will be better.
What was so bad about the first one?
The more I read at Memory Beta, the more this becomes my problem with the novels. From what I've read, the novel authors have made pretty much ever celestial being the various crews have run across, into members of the Q Continuum, despite the fact that none of them ever acted like the different Q seen on TNG and Voyager. Only Trelane ever acted like a Q, but his parents most certainly did not.
Not a damned thing! It was a great movie. I loved the way they established it as its own timeline, while still saying that everything that happened before still happened. Young Kirk payin' his dues was kind of fun, too.
I loved the first movie - it revitalized Trek to me.
It could have been a disaster, but they got a great cast and made a solid story out of the prequel/alternate timeline idea (which was needed to use these characters in new stories). The movie was fun, adventurous, dramatic, funny, and touching.
Can't wait for number two to see where they go with it. The possibilities are endless.
Going to be great to see the follow up to the new trek.
I honestly preferred the last movie to any of the old ones. But my opinion is void, because I happen to also think The Voyage Home is better then Wrath of Khan.
This makes more sense now. The ability to take a phaser blast at close range does rather shorten the list of characters it might be. Although we can't rule out entirely original characters either.
A crew that don't know how to 'beam' people.
Transportes that have to warm up like an old jalopy in a starship that is a hundred times more advanced than the original TOS one.
Water tanks over the communications crew.
The VFX were good tho.
Seriously, the last ST actually hooked me in to Star Trek way more then any other Trek series or movie could. I'm really looking forward to it.
