Star Trek

I don't really mind the new Star Trek movie focusing on the early days of Kirk and his crew, but wouldn't be interesting if it is based upon Enterprise?

I think the decision to focus on the original crew is a commercial one. The Star Trek movies have been performing worse and worse at the box office, so I suspect they are trying to expand their audience beyond the die-hard Trekkies. Kirk and Spock are universally known, and origin stories are all the rage at the moment. An Enterprise movie would only appeal to the people who watch that show.

Nemesis didn't do very well at the box office.

And TNG used to be relatively popular in their time too. If they couldn't pull it off with their last flick, how could a bunch of unknowns playing iconic roles that were preserved by the original cast for over 40 years?

I wish TNG had a better ending even though I enjoy Nemesis.

I guess the studio is banking on the characters being more popular than the actors who played them.

It's pretty desperate of them, there really is no bigger franchise Paramount had than Star Trek huh? The Indy films don't even count since they're produced by LucasFilm.

Looks interesting. I love the Kirk pose in the bottom one. Very Shatner.

I thought Sylar would make a good Spock, and these pics seem to confirm it.

Looks like Star Trek kids, a Muppet Baby spin off.

How are they goign to tie the young Kirk on Enterprise and the different look with the Show.

Actors look good I wonder about using the ST:TOS characters and going Pre-TV Show post Enterprise the series.

It's still a reboot, old Spock or not. The writers confirmed this. Having Nimoy is their way of giving a nod to the old show while at the same time having a passing-the-torch between old and new.

So far I don't like much of it, but I'm still reserving full judgment.

It would have been nice if there's TV movie based on Enterprise.

Looks pretty impressive. Love the Kirk scene at the beginning.
