While it isn't technically a line, the Nokia product placement pissed me off.

I dont see why? it's not any worse than:(which comes from TVH)


Well I could see an argument for saying it was a bit worse then what we saw in TVH.

The product placement we saw in that film took place in the 80's...so it makes sence we would see something.

But in JJ's film it took place in the future, in a time when we shouldnt have seen such a thing.

Why not?

Budweiser's been around a long time...why not another 245 years or so?

;)

:logical:

I'm not saying I agree with the argument...only that I can see the point of it.Based on what we've been told in other trek stories.

Personally I have no problem with some remnants of 20th century business still being around.As a matter of fact I always thought it odd that we never really saw any before.

I thought Pike saying "Punch It!" was cool. Especially with the new warp effect.

Nothing offensive about that. He could've said "step on it" for all I care.

As a matter of fact, Picard said this in one episode, I think he was still dressed as Dixon Hill, might have been "The Big Good-bye"?


If you want to talk about ridiculous lines, an early STTNG episode has Geordi saying, " Captain, we have a boogie coming in at an 11 o'clock tangent!"  Launch the Spitfires!!

Yeah I wasn't offended by "punch it" but I thought something else would happen when he said it.

Nothing "offended" me.....
...the day I am OFFENDED by something said in a Star Trek movie is the day I...


... will stop watching the offending StarTrek movie or episode

...will stop thinking about the offending StarTrek movie or episode

I have already told my Trek 'ultimate' fan friend to pa-leeze drown me if I ever exibit extreme negative reaction to anything that doesn't meet my idea of StarTrek, or if I ever lose any sleep over something I failed to like in a movie or television show.

Were there any lines of dialogue in the new movie that offended you?

I was a little offended when Christopher Pike shouts "PUNCH IT"

Punch it?

That's what Han Solo says in star wars when he jumps to light speed in the millenium falcon

when you go to warp speed in star trek you say "ENGAGE"

I seriously hope they get that right next time in the next movie

I can't say that "punch it" was offensive. But lines like this did make it difficult to take the movie seriously. These are professionally trained officers - they should be behaving and speaking more professionally.

I liked in ST3, the captain of the Excelsior said "Execute!".
