while i would agree with this statement, the truth is that as the fan base is getting old and Paramount/CBS want to continue to gain numbers in the fan base, creating something that caters to a younger audience makes plenty of sense.

once they see new trek, people get interested in old trek and in that, create a relevant and renewed interest in the series... at least that is how it is supposed to work.

to say CBS is run by a bunch of money grubbing show killers is not too far from the truth but at the same time, we can't have everything for free.

That's not what I said at all. I was referring to how the original series was an action based show, and that the movie took that style and ran with it.


Apologies if English isn't your first language.

No true Scotsman and all that. . .
Well, what do you know, Tumerboy IS a Star Trek fan, and knows the fandom community pretty well.

TOS really is like an action movie. Kirk got the women, he made sarcastic asides, and he fought sweaty and (sometimes) shirtless while jump kicking people to the future.

Anyone who thinks TOS is purely a heady drama, kind of missed out on the fun the series had that didn't return (imo) until Enterprise.

According to his (verified account) Twitter and his official website, he's in it. I can't wait to see what he makes of it

Sorry. I'm a "TNG Kid" . I'm not saying I heard Kirk say "Punch it" or at least when it came to moving through space at least. Kirk might have said it but it probably was something to do with an alien on the ground we never saw again.

Weird thing is just did a space mission in TOR that I've been doing for a long time. And a companion says "Punch it". Before this thread I just didn't pay it much attention but now every single time he says it, I get a chuckle out of JJ's Trek doing it too.

I don't think I've ever agreed with a post as much as this one.

I don't see an Ensign Sue on that list. Fail.
