Star Trek (2009)

I am a fan of the original series starring William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and DeForest Kelley. I never saw or followed the tidal wave of other series that traded on the popularity of the original. I did see and own the original cast Movies.

Now a new Star Trek film is in construction.

I have heard that Leonard Nimoy is a part of the production and William Shatner has publicly voiced his disappointment at not being approached to be involved in any way.

One thing I feel to be true is that William Shatner's magnetic performance held the TV Shows together and while the casting of the new Star Trek film looks careful, the casting of Chris Pine as Jim Kirk looks dubious.

Yes, I know it is too early to tell and I am judging by appearance and intuition but Shatner's confidence in his own acting ability and boundless charisma will be a hard thing to compete with.

As a Trekkie who followed TOS, TNG, and the Shatnerverse novels, I'm looking forwards to this. Very much. Can't wait to see how this turns out. I'm cautiously optimistic, as it's [spoiler:vzehft4n]a time travel story[/spoiler:vzehft4n]- one of my favorite sci-fi plots- and it draws on [spoiler:vzehft4n]the Guardian of Forever![/spoiler:vzehft4n]

i've got some serious reservations about it.... not expecting too much...
especially when the first thing they show in the teaser trailer is totally
retarded..... they didn't build starships on earth... lol they build them
in orbital facilities... in pretty much every single series.... gave me a
pretty bad vibe about it.

The thing that I feel this new version will have the hardest time with... is the chemistry between the three principles, Kirk, Spock and Bones.

In the original series a wonderful chemistry was in abundance and I think it was luck that these actors fired off each other so.

How can that special and almost random quality be brought to this new version?

As a side note, Shatner has again created a memorable character in Denny Crane and has a remarkable chemistry with James Spader in Boston Legal.

I hope and pray that this does work. And yes, Shatner is awesome in Boston Legal.
You're an adult. Just cope.

Don't take that as fact. The first T2 teaser showed an Endoskeleton assembly line but we didn't see that in the final film. And how many times have scenes shown up in teasers that were different takes or omitted completely from the final film?

Wait until we see some real footage from the film...teasers, and to a lesser extent trailers, don't fully count.

well... i hope you're right....
still gave me a bad vibe.... when the very first teaser they give is of something that's completely counter to the whole history of the star trek universe.... to me that doesn't bode well.....

plus abrams' relative inexperience with directing.... yeah the guy has produced a bunch.... but all he's directed is one movie and 11 episodes of various tv shows..... plus he wrote armageddon, and that's definitely a mark against him Wink haha
