Star Trek has always been about second chances.  Far more than just giving up when shit goes wrong.  Vulcan's fucked, oh well.  Let's not even try and figure out how the bad guy went back in time and try and stop him.  So Star Trek 4 should have been the shortest movie in the series.  Kirk should have given up and flew away when the President told him to leave.  As Spock says, "There are always possibilities."

See that is what was wrong with Star Trek,the producers were catering to the hard core fans who want the rest button pushed every forty five minutes and there never being any danger of anything going wrong.  the trouble is that is not good drama and there are only about 100 people in the world who watch a movie to see a much of people in jump suits be in no danger what so ever.

No, I think Doc understood your point.  Going back to stop Vulcan from being destroyed would have been even more of a copout than the rest of the movie.  Almost as bad as having old Spock wake up at the end and say "I just had a really weird dream!"

i think this new timeline has a great deal of potential, just as the mirror universe does. that's why im happily anticipating this movie. i like where it's going.

Yeah exactly.  There needed to be something in the middle of the movie that showed there was real danger.  the Vulcans have not be wiped out but by getting rid of the planet  we were shown that there is danger here and this universe isn't just going to be a carbon copy of the prime universe  with younger actors. Even if you are a huge Star trek fan like me you know can't be completely sure where the story is going to go,and that to me is what makes an exciting movie and it is what was missing for Voyager and the first two seasons of Enterprise.

why the bloody hell cant people just appreciate the varying incarnations of a great franchise/idea.

Because some of those incarnations blow, and blow big time. For example, I appreciate the Star Wars franchise on the whole, but I don't appreciate anything about the prequels. Plenty of folks love the Transformers franchise, yet hate the Bay movies with the burning intensity of a thousand suns. I don't see why people should have to appreciate every single embodiment of a franchise simply because it bears its name and likeness.

I try to have a fair point of view about things. For example, while I liked the Transformers films, I can't argue when a person says they suck balls big time, because I can see where they are coming from. I'm not insane enough to say Oh those are great films. While I enjoy them, I cannot rightfully disagree with the complaints about them. Fair's fair, right?

If you dont like my posts the movies than ignore them. Nodoby gun to your head forcing you to read all the posts watch every sequel, prequel or remake. Will you die of a brain tumur if you stop reading the thread watching them? If not than leave and dont come back skip them. If you want to see naked pictures of people, than you should go to a pornography site.

Doesn't sound like we will be getting any info on Cumberbatch's character any time soon.  Glad to hear he os happy with the part,whoever it is he is playing.

I can't wait for the new ST.  It has once again become fresh and relevent to me.  I consider myself a casual, not hardcore fan.  I grew up as a small kid watching the original on tv.  There was nothing like it at the time, and I loved watching it.  I never really followed the other incarnations that closely.  I watched the following movies with less, and less interest.  Then the reboot came along, and I had a hell of a lot of fun watching it.  So bing it on!
