Somewhere in Canada lies an unloved unseen briefcase full of star trek technical manuals with my name on it.

Judging by the latest issue of Empire, the new one does look like Star Trek: The Boy Band.

Was the last one the one with the Picard Romulan chap where Data got blown up. That was an even number and proper awful. The Romulan space ship in it is a good candidate for least practical spaceship design ever.

Fancy putting the highly lethal radiation mixing bit right next to the bridge.

Saw the new film last night and it was very enjoyable, even if it had about the same level of scientific credibility as an average Dr. Who episode. I like the way they set it up so that they can make more films without clashing with what's already out there, although I suppose some people are whinging about it.

It was an enjoyable film. I think they resolved the, um, inconsistancies with the Star Trek canon material in a way which will keep Star Trek fans happy. Pegg was brilliant and introduced into the plot at precisely the right time.

This is a good review of the science (contains spoilers) - http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badas ... star-trek/

Interesting article, thanks.

I thought the casting was pretty good as a whole. Even the pretty people did well I thought. I'm assuming they'll make sequels, so I wonder if they'll address the fact that there's a guy with loads of advanced technology from the future in his head kicking around setting up a new planet...

I enjoyed the new Trek Film a lot and yeah, it was pretty well done to set up a 'new' timeline that won't affect the existing stuff.

Also enjoyed this new story:

Trekkies bash new Star Trek film as 'Fun', 'Watchable':

I really liked that too. I was sat waiting for the plot twist which resolved and reset everything... but it never came, making the lack of twist the twist for me. Um. If that makes sense.

Transparent Aluminum!

Yeah, that 'invention of trans-warp beaming' scene was a little frustrating as far as 'interfering with the past' cop outs go, but then I guess the fact that this is a different future means that doesn't really matter.

Watching TNG is like putting on really lovely old pajamas. It's so familiar and comforting. I'm probably old...

I do love TNG, but when I was at school, I always had loads of homework for the day after TNG was on. Even now the music makes my heart sink as it triggers a part of me that thinks I have to start some work for tomorrow.

To continue the comparison though... the recent films are like getting into a freshly made (rebooted?) bed. It's all the things that I remember liking from the old sheets, but better.

Seriously though, Battlestar killed Star Trek. I mean how can you watch these warm cuddly military men after Admiral Adama and Colonel Tigh? I was watching ST:TMP, where some Captain was bitching that Admiral Kirk was commanding his ship, and I thought, if this was Adama, that captain would have been punched by now.
