Today on Starfleet Forumdock, the topic is all about Star Trek Into Darkness, the second film in J.J. Abrams' theatrical Star Trek film series. Yes, you're invited to share your thoughts about the movie itself, that is if you have seen the movie yet. I happened to enjoy the film when seeing it on 5/19/2013, despite a few unexpected parts, and felt it took things up the notch for the film series itself. Anyway, here are some questions you may want to think about as you take part in the forum discussion: What did you like about the film? What you hate about it (if there are any aspects you dislike)? Would you say it brought further advancement to J.J. Abrams' revamp of Star Trek, or would you say it brought ruin? What are your thoughts about John Harrison as a villain? What are your thoughts about the character development of James T. Kirk and his crew within the film? Is it among the best Star Trek movies you have seen so far (if you have seen any of the previous 11 so far of course)?
Remember, since the movie is in being shown in theatres, please make sure to use the spoiler function to hide any spoiler details of the movie mentioned in your commentary from online public viewing so as to not spoil things up for those who have not yet seen the film but are still interested in watching.
Today's topic on Starfleet Forumdock is for all those gamer-types. I am sure at least some of you Trekkers reading this have taken the time to play the new video game Star Trek: The Video Game, where you play Captain James T. Kirk or his executive officer Spock while the game itself centers around the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701's mission to New Vulcan, with the Gorn as the villains. Anyway, I am open to hearing your comments about what the gameplay is like since I never played the video game myself. You can also talk about what you find to be the game's ups and downs, and whether you find this worth trying out, even in comparison/contrast to previous Star Trek video games.
Today, TrekMovie.com reveals a full shot of John Harrison's Dreadnought-Class starship, the antagonal starship from the upcoming movie Star Trek into Darkness. Plus, the same site reveals a name for this big tyrant: the "U.S.S. Vengeance". However, no mention of its Starfleet registry number, and it is hard to search around for it in the image because of the lack of lighting on the ship's hull, but an excellent shot of this badass-looking ship nevertheless. Does John Harrison have a chance to prove he can outrank the other Star Trek villains with this ship? Will the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 have met its match, even in terms of which Starfllet ship will prove superior in battle tactics and armor strength? Perhaps we won't know until te movie's out. Anyway, here's the image of the U.S.S. Vengeance below, and enjoy!
While browsing around for Star Trek-related content at StarTrek.com earlier this evening, I had found out that Star Trek: The Original Series had won the Fan Favorites Award for "Favorite Classic TV Show", based on votes from TV Guide Magazine readers. If you're curious about what this legendary 1966 show went up against during the Awrds event by TV Guide, the other nominees weren't mentioned, so just pick up a copy of the Fan Favorites Awards double issue of TV Guide Magazine.
Congrats to the original Star Trek series on its victory, and may its greatness live long and prosper.
Check out this epic new U.S. trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness, which I found at YouTube today. And keep watch for villain John Harrison's monsterous starship. It resembles the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 in exterior shape, but it looks darker and larger, and watching it fight the Enterprise may well be an homage to the battle scene of Yamato Vs. Zwordar's Super-Sized Battleship in the final episode of Sapce Battleship Yamato 2, that is if any of the filmmakers is a fan of the "Star Blazers" dubs, otherwise the similarity between shots is just coincidence. Well, enjoy.
