Saw Star Trek , yeah I know I am late for this party - but what a great prequel , good story , good villain casting . The only odd thing is Spock and Ohura making out , I mean don't Vulcans mate like once every 7 years and they suppress their emotions ? Humm maybe thats the human half showing ?
I finally saw it last week and really enjoyed it. I was never a fanatical trekkie ('scuse me, trekker) but I grew up on the original series and watched most of the movies and about half of the other TV series. I actually prefer The Next Generation since the stories and acting were much better. I've heard that the Enterprise series started off rocky and really improved before it was cancelled so I wouldn't mind seeing that.
I went with one of my kids and kept telling her how I was getting much more out of the movie since I knew the background. How Pike was the Captain on the unaired original pilot (later reworked as "The Menagerie").
If you google Spoke, Ohura and romance, you'll find there were a couple of hints in the original series of a romantic connection between the two.
It was kinda funny to see how they brought back the Rodenberry mini-skirts in the movie. Rodenberry was pretty much a pig when it came to women and wanted them to show as much leg as possible.
"If it turns out that President Barack Obama can make a deal with the most intransigent, hard-line, unreasonable, totalitarian mullahs in the world but not with Republicans? Maybe he’s not the problem."
That was the hit of the week for me when I was a lad. I waited all week for it. Didn't it air on Wednesday. Thinking it did.
I liked the short costumes back then. Bout all the erotic stuff I got to see out on the farm. Well, we did have a large seleciton of Nat Geos around and also a hard back gook about Africa that had lots of skin.
There are 10 kinds of people. Those that understand binary and those that don't.
