If"making JJ better" involves kneecaps, and a lousville slugger....I'm in.

I will wait for it on netflicks, then I can enjoy it hammered at home, and just consider it as "Bubblegum" Trek. I figure someday someone will resume prime universe Trek.

Do I read this right? You're condemning this as "'Bubblegum' Trek" - and you haven't even seen it yet?

As it was put in another thread - IDIC fail.

TV has smarten up????? unless there is a Star Trek reality show, I don't see it coming back to TV....the Internet should be where Trek goes TV is dead just like in Trek.

YES! If its only half as hemmeroid inducing as the first one I think I can wait to rent it at home after I dumb myself down with alcoholic beverages so I can possibly enjoy it.

I like the new engineering section.

The only reason the TOS engineering room was just a room full of blinky lights and a screened-off warp core was because that was all the budget and the set space at Desilu allowed for.

Personally I think the guts of a huge ship should look like the guts of a huge ship.

Undiscovered Country was a lot more cerebral than people give it credit for. Sure theres a lot of action-y stuff, with all the sabotage, prison escape plot, and all that crap. But it also has Kirk overcoming his racism, coming to terms with the death of his son, and accepting his age, the argument that logic has it's flaws as well, death, and whether something exists beyond it, and whether it's more honorable to go down fighting, or admit that you need help. Plus it has some of the greatest lines in Star Trek history.

The only ones that truly tried to be intelligent failed spectacularly.

Please, by all means, do tell me where the Warp Core on the JJprise is.

It don't look like the guts of a huge ship. It looks like a brewery.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

It's not sitting right out in the open where any stray phaser shot during a boarding raid can blow it, and the ship, up.

Last I saw, they were all exploded in a black hole.

Seriously though, Find the nuclear reactors on this.

(And having worked on these ships, I can tell you that their guts do bear a certain resemblance to JJ's Enterprise, and a Brewery.)
