    Well, you can't have all things all at once.

    + if it isn't there already. Make it part of the story. Have the women fight for that right, right there on screen and succeed. Have the confrontation and see how it goes.

    Just yeaterday a group of us who were founding members of a Star Trek club that was formed in 1971, got together for a little mini-reunion.

    All people who KNOW Star Trek.

    Out of about 25 people only one didn't like AbramsTrek.

    You folks, can post your three year old jokes and lenses flares all day, but I think that's a fine endorsement.
    I liked the show too, but I think the lenses flare joke was pretty funny. If for no other reason than because they go on about the lense flaring in the commentary on the dvd.

    Twilight Zone had stinkers too.
    Yeah, people that dump on ST'09 forget all about such Trek classics as "Spock's Brain", "The Omega Glory" and "The Way to Eden". When you point it out to them, they change course and come up with some other idiotic arguments against it.

    Not a Sherlock viewer so this news means nothing to me, but figured there would be interested parties here:
    Cumberbatch to play villain in 'Star Trek 2' - Entertainment News, Film News, Media - Variety

    On the heels of his well-received turns in "War Horse" and "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," Brit thesp Benedict Cumberbatch has been tapped to play the villain in J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek 2."

    Cumberbatch landed the role that Edgar Ramirez had auditioned for last month.

    Cumberbatch joins fellow Brit newcomers Noel Clarke and Alice Eve, as well as Peter Weller.
    So, not Khan.

    According to that article...Paramount had no comment about the casting. He could play anyone, not necessarily a villain. He looks like a Vulcan to me, or maybe he is playing a Horta.

    Well if you give any weight to the original article released they did say...
    The villain will be Harry Mudd, Trelane, or Gary Mitchel. He is too skinny to be a good Mudd. My bet is Trelane.

    So after all the protestations from JJ et-al that they reset the universe so they could tell new stories, they're going to use an old villain?

    This. They want to retell old stories without being bound by continuity, basically. That's why they rebooted. You can revisit anything that was touched before, but you can stick in fresh faces, new f/x, and not be bound by 1960s design concepts or the show's prior continuity. As a marketing move, it's pretty savvy, really.

    Indeed. The names remain the same but the stories can be completely new.

    I'm looking forward to the new film! I don't even care if they keep the Enterprise looking the way it does now... Well... I wouldn't mind streamlining the nacelles a wee bit.

    I can see Cumberbatch playing a Vulcan. Heck, he would have made a GREAT Spock.
    Anyone who has not seen Cumberbatch on on Sherlock, you should at least take some time to watch some clips of him on YouTube. He is one of the best actors on TV IMHO.

    its been in all the major newspapers here in the UK that he has signed on to play the main villain, its also been stated that a special shooting schedule has been tentatively agreed to give him the chance to film Trek 2 whilst fulfilling his commitments to the Hobbit. Personally I think it could be a great piece of casting, he is a fine actor

    Will not confirm/deny Cumberbatch as villain, but said no changes to the script were made because of casting

    The lens flare, while goofy, was a mild annoyance. Post-conversion to 3D probably means several "COMIN' AT YA!" shots purely to make the studio suits happy.

    Hopefully there'll be a good movie in there somewhere. I do like the casting news, though.

    Good article!

    The whole time I was watching the 09 film I was thinking that Bruce Greenwood sounded like he would be great doing voice over work. When he voiced Batman for Under the Red Hood I felt like Kevin Conroy could finally retire if he wanted. Greenwood's Batman was fantastic.

    Cant wait to see it, Abrams is a god, loved his vision of Star Truck, and the lens flare was just a delight on the eyes!
