WTF is this dickwad doing managing the Star Trek movies? srsly? You hired this J J Abrams guy?

In an interview in Playboy (yes that playboy), Abrams admits how little he knows about Trek.

Well, I haven’t seen every episode of every version of every Star Trek series, but I’m sure there are many more places to go. What’s great about doing another origin story is that it’s all about anticipating the Star Trek world we know is to come. You can play with who Spock and Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise were before they were Spock and Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise. It’s a kind of tease.

J J Abrams to Direct Star Wars Episode VII? DONT MAKE US BARF!!!! January 24, 2013

News today is that J J Abrams – the dude behind the moronic Star Trek reboot – but also the same guy behind great TV like Fringe – has been tapped to direct the first Disney Star Wars movie.

THIS IS JUST PLAIN WRONG.

Star Wars and Star Trek should not crossover and the infection of Abrams will be revolting to those with high midichlorian counts.

Then again – George Lucas is hardly a great director either – Episodes 1-3 are proof of that…and so long as J J doesn’t bring back Jar Jar (strange how J J and Jar Jar have the same initials) – we can’t be too peeved right?

Owning a gun in the Munroe Republic is a hanging offense…so go hang yourself. Easily the best line in JJ Abrams new show.

Or how about the former Gooogle guy.. 8 million in the bank and i,d trade it all for a roll of Charmin.

The insurance adjuster…he,s a mean dude.

So is this show any good? It looks like yet,another post apocalypse show..not sure it has the legs to last though

The big question for us is if we will getmthe Klingons we should have had before…or will JJ Abrams mess up canon and give us a Borg encounter?

Fringe – The Aruba War – aka the Pen is mightier than the … October 7, 2010

A simple item like a pen can set off a chain reaction that ends up with three (or more) people dead?

Astounding.

Fringe has a neat- super plot – but the minor episode plots are still amazing. The whole concept of a human being able to calculate all the permutations and combinations was a great concept.

We also learned more about the mirror Earth.

Apparently there was an – Aruba War  – (remember the homeless guy on the street? he had a sign that said Aruba War veteran — guess the battle was over who had the best beach..)

And we know that they’ve got some serious air quality issues too.

Olivia is falling apart in the mirror universe and she will crack soon….

Wil ‘Ensign Crusher’ Wheaton WAS IN Star Trek 09?! He did voice work!! November 5, 2009

startrekWow – somehow until today no one knew that Wil Wheaton – best known to Star Trek Fans for his work on Next Generation as Ensign Wesley Crusher – was actually in J J Abrams star trek 2009.

Wheaton did the voice over work for the Romulans on Nero’s ship.

Listen in to this clip below to the voice that says, “”Sir, if you ignite the Red Matter now … ”

Star Trek (2009) out on DVD Nov 17th including a few nifty extra November 4, 2009

startrek J J Abrams Star Trek makes it to the ‘little’ screen on Nov. 17th.

Alongside the movie itself the DVD release will include a few notable outtakes including the deleted Klingon Scene. They don’t quite look like regular klingons to us, but hey close enough. We’ve included the clip below which aired on the Scream 2009 awards a few weeks back.

The other big thing is a featurette called “The Shatner Conundrum” which is all about why Will Shatner didn’t make it into the movie. It’s still the biggest travesty in my opinion and the featurette doesn’t make it any better

Star Trek Countdown is the must read prequel to Star Trek XI June 11, 2009

startrek.countdown ok SO we didn’t LOVE Star Trek XI because of some alternate universe timeline issues…but maybe we were a little harsh..

We just finished reading the Star Trek Countdown Trade Paperback,  and it sure does a lot to help Star Trek XI make sense.

For one, the comic ties in the Next Generation cast – Picard in this comic is the ambassador to Vulcan, Worf works for the Klingons and Data is back as Captain of the Enterprise (an imprint on B-4).

Nero’s ship — is explained as a Romulan research project including the best of Borg technology — that makes sense..and I sure wish the movie added that tidbit of info..

Red matter is well explained as is the Hobes star that destroyed Romulus. Basically this is the story that the movie failed to tell effectively – told from a post Star Trek Nemesis timeline.

It’s great stuff and it sure is too bad that this wasn’t part of the actual movie – that would have made the difference – for us – for Star Trek XI being ok – to Star Trek XI being the best Star Trek ever made.

Fringe Season Finale Shocker, Peter is really dead May 14, 2009

Alright not a spoiler anymore the show was on tuesday night…

Peter is really dead. How about that!! Walter had to pull  him over from an alternate reality…but doesn’t that mean that someone else is missing Peter?

Neat to see Leonard Nimoy – albeit briefly and kind of eerie to have his office in the World Trade Center.

But hey we know this show has been renewed so in a few short months we’ll know what the frak is going on!

Klingons cut from Star Trek XI! jatlhwI’pu’ !! April 28, 2009

J J Abrams is so keen on having his vision of Star Trek – 90210’ish that he’s cut Klingon from the movie.

Yup that’s right. A classic era trek film where there is no spoken Klingon.

It’s total FRAKKIN BS.

“We actually had a sequence that ended up getting cut from the movie that took place on Rura Penthe, in a Klingon prison,” co-writer Alex Kurtzman told SCI FI Wire, explaining the deletion. “And there was definitely Klingon spoken in the movie, and it ended up getting cut.”

So while this new movie might look slick, by cutting out the Klingon this new film is cutting out the Warrior heart of the Star Trek Universe.

If they end up making Star Trek XII let’s sure hope it’s a full on Klingon Federation war!

Star Trek XI Fourth Trailer is AWESOME! March 6, 2009

“Your father was Captain of a Starship for 12 minutes. I dare you to do better.”

Captain Pike to James T. Kirk.

The first few trailers for the new Star Trek movie had us wondering if this new Star Trek movie would be a total disaster.

Apparently J J Abrams listened and the latest trailer is seamless stitched together in a way that should excite all Star Trek fans.

We know that this isn’t classic Trek – and the new trailer doesn’t pretend to be either. This is something new and it’s something AWESOME.

J J Abrams is out today with a new teaser trailer for Star Trek XI – set to air during the Superbowl.

Basically more of the same from what we’ve seen in previous trailers  – destruction of the Kelvin, Kirk getting busy, Spock beaming in, Scotty looking worried..

But oh yeah there is one major plot addition that we haven’t yet seen in any other format

– a massive space attack on StarFleet Academy itself!

If you don’t catch it during the SuperBowl it’s already on YouTube – check it out below.

Fringe – The Safe is a Teleporter December 3, 2008

fringeI did not see that one coming – first of all . Walter is the root of all technology in the show – good or bad. It’s a neat concept but what that is really starting to get very tired.

So he built a teleporter – not a time machine – that took the ‘gentleman’ to the little hill.

neat.

Bad guys passing through wall – like the phase inverter that stranded one of Riker’s ships on Star Trek (remember the show with the Teleporter..). Ok maybe not a totally unique idea. but still fun.

A fun episode overall though – and it will be interesting to see how AGent Dunham is rescued and by whom – i’ll put an early guess that it will be Massive!

J J Abrams isn’t the only one snubbing Bill Shatner. George “Sulu” Takei also recently snubbed Takei by apparently not inviting him to his recent wedding.

Inside Star Trek XI – What’s a USS Kelvin? October 16, 2008

EW has an inside scoop on Star XI this month. Lots of pics and some interesting insight into J J Abrams maddness of a remake. He also gave away the plot in the interview

** SPOILER ALERT**

The EW interview confirms that the movie will be a time travel film. The USS Kelvin is attacked by the Eric Bana character Nero which sets off a series events that shakes up time. Along the way the film goes into the origins of the classic Enterprise crew with a key focus on James Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinto).

Time travel is great but how many time travel Star Trek movies do we need? Star Trek IV was time travel (to save the whales). Star Trek First Contact was time travel too….wouldn’t it have been more fun to have a mirror universe movie??

By going the time travel route – Abrams is showing his lack on imagination. There are so many other great things that SciFi can do from a plot point of view – time travel is a dated and far too well worn plot tool.
