  1. What's You're Favorite Data Moment?

    This will sound slightly mean (which sometimes feel like the ultimate sin on this Ned Flanders of a Trek site), and I apologize to the OP as this is more of a general feeling than anything, but oh am I excited to have a new series so we can stop having such nostalgic, punch/past-drunk moments about anything Trek that passes our way! But to answer the question, my (current) favourite Data moment is him passing the torch to the "Next Generation" when he acknowledged being too old to play an (supposedly) immortal android...
  2. No reviews of Discovery until first episodes air?

    From a guy who usually gets spoiled quite a lot (either on purpose like I did for Nemesis, Enterprise and the first JJ movie) or not (GoT, among others: I've read the books, but am not up to date by many seasons on the show as I'd like to wait as long as possible to finish that alternate universe version, but the internet, even when not searching for them, has been quite ruthless in its spoiling ways), I have to say I appreciate how little of Discovery has gotten out, and if the review hold allows for a better, unspoiled experience, I'm not against it. I'm quite happy to hear people liked it, but I really don't want to hear much more anymore.
  3. The Klingon Redesign?

    But maybe the marketing people - or the creative ones - actually wanted us to scratch our heads, dissect and discuss the shit out of it until Discovery gets out...
  4. I converted my GF to Trek these last two years, but she'll be away at a convention (a work one) in Toronto until Tuesday, and I promised to wait for her to watch it. I have remained mostly unspoiled, but I wonder how easy it will be from Sunday on...
  5. OUT NOW: 'ENT - Patterns of Interference'

    Not the most gracious cover, but the story seems interesting, especially the bits that seem to reflect current political events.
  6. And this guy's not there? No thank you. But seriously: No.
  7. Origin of the Terran Empire

    Mirror Phlox does state that, aside from Shakespeare, who is equally grim in both universes, many other authors' works are usually way more "weak and compassionate" in the Prime Universe, which tends to confirm that both have always been parallel, or at least diverged quite a while ago...
  8. DISCOVERY Delayed Again ? No Release Date ?

    I'm sure it was exciting back then, but man, does it pinpoint the awkward acting (except for Levar, and to a lesser degree, Stewart) of the pilot. Not to mention how TNG has aged... Troi: "I'm detecting...*frowns...extreme awkwardness". But yes, I'm excited for any kind of promo for Discovery!
  9. Broken links in News Items

    Thanks!
  10. Broken links in News Items

    I keep getting 404 errors from links posted by TrekCoreNews. Am I the only one? Two exemples from recent threads below:
  11. Just wanted to put it out there: Doing a front-flip in Zero-G and then waving the Enterprise goodbye is the coolest thing someone could do in the 2270's, aside from saving Earth, maybe.

      I'm still trying to figure out how he kept from floating away after he kicked off from the spacedock itself (?).  Maybe action-reaction principle works differently in the 23rd century...:giggle:

  12. The Pakleds, clearly (but slowly).
  13. Ten minutes in, Star Trek V could still have been the best Trek movie ever. (Shut up, Gustavo! :p)

      Generations is a guilty pleasure. The music is of course awesome, but it was also the first Trek movie I experienced in a theatre. By then, I wasn't too familiar with the Next Gen crew, but it was still a fascinating jump 75 years in the future from the TOS-movies period I knew best.

      Of course, it makes little sense, starts the bad Next Gen movie trend of writing most characters slightly off and a bridge kills (spoiler alert) Kirk (I'm not at all opposed to killing off Kirk, but it wasn't...elegant, if deaths ever are).

      So yeah, I like it, despite knowing better.

      Generations was my first Theatre experience too. Saw it 3 times. But I was very familiar with TNG. I was shocked to see (Spoilers) the Enterprise D destroyed. I was 8 at the time.

      I think GENERATIONS has wonderful performances from everyone kudos to director David Carson. Shatner deliver one of his best KIrk performances and Stewart and Malcolm McDowell are great in it too.

      STAR TREK V is the same thing - great acting all around. Watch the "I need my pain !" scene and the "Not in front of the Klingons" scene, great acting from Shatner, Nimoy and De Kelley. Even the campfire scene works. And Lawrence Luckinbill was just wonderful too as Sybok. He gave the movie some depth and gravitas. STAR TREK V,, as I said various times here before, is very an underrated adventure.
