read or listen to the audio book for the Star Trek movie and it reveals so much more. in the cave at Delta Vega, Kirk and Spock Prime spend a lot of time talking about alternate time lines, alternate histories.. bottom line is the theory that there are many alternates times lines and Nero going back in time creates an alternate time line the timelines try to heal itself, meaning that in any of the alternate timelines, where possible similar events happen where possible, so while this new timeline there is no Vulcan, Kirk can still encounter the Gorn, while Spock won't be able to go back to Vulcan to meet T'Pring. a lot of the same experiences can be had while in this time line, the possibilities that any of the crew can die also exist.

This is suppose to be a fun thread not based on the silly reboot although it does use as its base TOS scenarios and characters.

This is a flight of fancy.

A joke.

Something with which to have fun.

I think that Berman though got quite boring and repeatative. ¿I like the idea of being able to do anything. ¿I think it's insulting to old trek fans to try and stay in a used up timeline when we can start something fresh to explore a new love for the show, new connections, and new relations to our loved universe of Trek.

Berman was a numbers guy. A cigar-chomper. "ahh... the kids'll love THIS!" kinda thing.

TNG and its variants (DS9,Voy, Ent) lacked artistry. It was very "comfort-zone" for its fans, which is fine. But watching it was like being stuck at the Hilton against your will.

Calling for the removal of St.com's Administrators and Moderators for mis-managing this website.  MEMBERS: copy and paste this thread and send it to CBS so we can get an unbiased, more professional staff running this site.  
Admin & Mod's refuse to answer any emails, p.m.'s, or threads questioning the recent banning/suspension of several long time members of St.com.  The Admins & Mod's will not tell these banned or suspended members how they violated the Terms of Service on St.com, and how long their suspension will be in effect.  The recently suspended members cannot even ask Admin what their suspension was based on, because their p.m. priviledges were removed by Admin.  And don't even both emailing them at Community@startrek.com  They will not answer.  I believe they don't tell the banned/suspended members what they did wrong, because there WASN'T ANY VIOLATION COMMITTED.  Otherwise, why would Admin remain silent.
The Admin of St.com have also recently banned several ISP numbers, which bans innocent people with that same ISP.  One public ISP number banned covers three separate states!.  That means that even guests who want to view the message boards here on the Star Trek XI movie are blocked.  I wonder what the Adverstisers on this site would think about that??
This is a travesity.  This is a dictatorship.  And this is totally unfair to the seasoned long time members of St.com who kept this site active and fesh for many years, making more than 20,000 posts so the Advertisers would continue to pay CBS/Paramount.
If we, the members of St.com do not get a more UNBIASED, professional acting staff running our beloved site, I will be taking a PETITION to the 2009 Star Trek Vegas Convention next month getting hundreds of fans to sign for the removal of the current Admin staff here.  I won't have any trouble getting signatures, as so many Star Trek fans have left this site years ago due to mis-management by Admin.
In closing, I know the UNPROFESSIONAL, dictatorship style Admin staff here will just delete this thread, and ban my ISP.  But I have about 20 different ISP's to come back and post this thread again and again until we get some answers!
What you can do to help:  Go to CBS.Com and post your complaint about St.com in the television show feedback at the bottom of the page.  No email address or registration is required.  Post in every television show they have.  If they get enough complaints to forward to the Powers that Be, maybe something will be done.

I think this is a possible soap opera spinoff for CBS: "Young and the Trekless."

Imagine ¿this:

Kirk, Spock and McCoy awake from a terrific drunk to discover that someone has left them a baby and a note.

The note says: "It's your turn."

The rest of the movie is about how these three become superlative space daddies as they serve for the mother:

Is it any of the 3,000 woman Kirk has been with in the past year?
Is it a Spock-Ohura love child?
Is it the result of a little nookie between McCoy and Nurse Chapel?

The search, however, is complicated by a combined attack of revenge bent Romulans and bored Klingons with nothing better to do.

Thus we have sex, comedy, and explosions in one perfect movie: Star Trek: Three men and a battle

Ha! Three Men and a Baby was Directed by LEONARD NIMOY!!!  :cool:

near as i can tell, Chapel is floating disembodied around the halls of Starfleet Academy, and as she happens upon Spock and Uhura in a darkened dorm hallway, she experiences a tremendous wave of de ja vu.

all of this has happened before, and all of it will happen again.

through some variation of a Vulcan mind-meld it's a theoretical m¿nage ¿ trois

"One of the reasons we wanted to break with the original 'Star Trek' timeline was it felt restrictive," Abrams said. "The idea, now that we are in an independent timeline, allows us to use any of the ingredients from the past - or come up with brand-new ones - to make potential stories." .....

I will concede that to attempt to recreate a vision of Roddenberry's lost episodes with modern special effects would be at best a tribute to the man and although surely entertaining, would be mostly irrelevant and absolutely 'restrictive' to a moviemaker. Yes, this would be a task best left to a Lucas-- Star Trek thrives on new ideas, new perspectives, and new ways of looking at old ideas. This is the difference between Star Trek fans and Star Wars fans: the former find their entertainment in the contemplation of character and plot development, philosophical and moral crisis, technological innovation; the latter in the clever recreation of irrelevant details, the moviemaker's ability to make a simple story as confusing as possible, and the hem of garments.
Star Trek Omnis is about people overcoming personal and situational obstacles against incredible odds. Integral is the notion of righting wrongs where they are found. At heart, they are colonialists with a naval tradition. The true beauty of Roddenberry's vision: it envisions a culture in which man's nature has taken a great leap toward coming into equilibrium with his environment. Man is at heart a conqueror, that is to say, as a species, we expand, we seek adventure, we lust for acquisition, and we even crave violence. But in this future we have developed a code that allows us to live to our maximum potential, to feel life to it's fullest, to experience new things, to learn and to grow every day that we live and breathe, but not to destroy and ravage in our path, not to find our personal gain at the expense of someone weaker.
The code that has evolved I believe I can summarize thusly:
1) To learn and grow as individuals and as a species.
2) To protect the helpless (ultimately best defined by the Prime Directive)
3) To uphold legal contracts wherever they may be found.
4) To protect the integrity of the Timeline, even where it necessarily implies self-sacrifice.
At the heart of these ideals is a religious faith in an incomprehensible order to the universe, a fundamental belief that good will overcome evil, that good can come from evil, that it is possible to believe both that one person can make a difference, that the sanctity of the individual is the most important thing in the universe and simultaneously that we are greater as a whole than as individuals.
These principals are essential to the character of Star Trek-- proven more essential than the format of ship-based exploration, naval tradition, individual characters, or the cut of a uniform. This is why the current story arc only has one possible end. Being an alternate reality story, Star Trek morality leaves only one possible course of action. If the next movie is not about the crew of the Enterprise gallantly doing the impossible, defeating Nero before he is able to kill Kirk Sr., then it is a story of people betraying their principals. Any other course would imply that the attack by Nero had somehow changed the very fabric of Federation philosophy, the entire worldview of the contemporary human culture, that all of humanity had failed to make Roddenberry's discovery; had failed to find a way to channel our warlike, colonial and ¿ hoarding instincts into a force for good in the Universe. It would imply that Kirk had degenerated into Buck Rogers.
The current story line could be one of the great iterations of Star Trek mythology (I do believe it was a well-orchestrated diversion), but only if it ends with success through sacrifice and restoration of the proper order of things, evidence of human faith in the unknown and an inherent and fostered belief in Good. Please, reassure me that Tasha Yar was not raped by a Romulan just so that Spock and Kirk could have a gangbang with Uhura.

i'm mulling over a different alternate reality now. ¿in that one, based on XI, scotty redesigns the dilithium reaction chambers to be bigger and rounder, and with a softer texture. ¿ at high warp, he can be found nestling between them, napping.

two giant mounds of softer, rounder, bigger dilithium crystals?

For some reason, although I ticked the correct box, I am  not being notified of updates, so I cannot track this topic. Anyway, let me try again...
Long, long ago
in a galaxy far far away...
wait, wrong franchise

Nurse Chapel is floating through space, a space pod on the look out for the proper conditions that will allow her to return to her sentient self. She looks down from that space place and spies with her little eye, an attractive young woman, standing in the center of a plaza in a place that doesn't look like Los Angeles but which doubles for Los Angeles and is tax friendly to film makers. Chapel likes the look of the girl, ripe, as she is, in her young womanhood, her cheeks full with naturally occurring collagen, only a hint of artificial color on her cherry pink lips. Yes, thinks Nurse Chapel, I believe I have found my new home. Quickly shape shifting into an outer space toilet, Nurse Chapels falls to earth, picking up speed as she hurries to be one with the tasty little mortal morsel below--and while she is, on one hand, successful, she, and the tasty little morsel die, which is kind of a problem until someone who looks like Spock, but without the ears or greenish tint, introduces himself as Leonard and offers to buy the new Christine a coffee while he explains her new duties as a Grim Reaper.
