[19:32:45] <Sal_Wyn> nuKhan was well acted. [19:32:45] <Rich> its funny about some of the fan rage for Into Darkness cause after I "accepted" the 2009 one [19:32:57] <T_EganMannoKells> @Hannibal, yeah, that's the bottom line for me, I think [19:33:01] <Rich> I was like whatever. Ill go with it for 2013 [19:33:10] <Rich> hehe [19:33:18] <Rich> anyone want Shatner back for 2016? [19:33:21] <Hannibal> This Khan was not as menacing as old Khan.... [19:33:23] <Silveira> No [19:33:24] <LtCmdr_Richards> They are both good films [19:33:30] <Rich> as the rumors are twittering about [19:33:35] <Sal_Wyn> But could the script writers have given the character any LESS motivation? "I hate you, kirk. I have no real reason to hate you... in fact our end goals are pretty much the same, but I hate you... because I'm supposed to hate you. And I'm evil. K?" [19:33:44] <Rich> lol [19:33:53] <LtCmdr_Richards> And If people ever call either worst Trek ever, I just play the Trek V and Spock's brain cards :D [19:33:57] <Liam_Frost> and we're back [19:34:09] <Sal_Wyn> Trek V tried and failed. [19:34:12] <Rich> sorry didnt mean to dredge that up [19:34:21] <Brell2334> ug star trek v [19:34:24] <Silveira> And here we go, V has also some value in it [19:34:26] <Rich> although I am looking forward to 2016 [19:34:36] <Rich> hopefully itll be special [19:34:36] <Sal_Wyn> nuTrek never even tried. They just went the boy-band pop culture route and raked in some cash. [19:34:40] <Silveira> But I always find some good in any Trek [19:34:46] <Rich> 50th anniversary and all [19:34:56] <Hannibal> Unfortunately, cash rules...... [19:35:02] <Sal_Wyn> That said, IMHO the ~actors~ tried very hard in nuTrek and were the redeeming grace. [19:35:05] <Rich> and the one ice thing about redoing khan is we dont ever have to do that again [19:35:07] <Rich> nic [19:35:10] <Rich> nice [19:35:12] <Rich> cant type [19:35:13] <Hannibal> Could they make a Doomsday Machine remake? [19:35:31] <Hannibal> I think they would ruin it..... [19:35:48] <Silveira> I said it before I will say it again, I don't mind losing some quality to keep the francise alive [19:36:00] <Sal_Wyn> It depends. If they had someone at the helm that loved Star Trek and wanted to make something good out of it it could eb done. Other franchises did it [19:36:04] <Rich> I dont think trek will ever die [19:36:06] <T_EganMannoKells> I think you guys will appreciate this: http://fullfrontalfeminist.tumblr.com/post/54922859287/thevoiceofbenedictcumberbatch [19:36:07] <Vie> Doomsday machine would make a good film... [19:36:11] <Vie> If done right [19:36:15] <T_EganMannoKells> "The Shatner" [19:36:19] <Rich> maybe go dormant for some periods [19:36:34] <Rich> and surely if not back in 2009 someone else would have rebooted it eventually [19:36:42] <Hannibal> No doubt VIe it would make a good movie....but..... [19:36:48] <Silveira> I don't think so Rich [19:37:01] <Rich> i mean look at everything else [19:37:09] <Rich> bond, batman [19:37:10] <Vie> Well, that or Ballence of Terror - done Red October style. [19:37:33] <Rich> hell spiderman and hulk both got rebooted within a few years of their last iterations [19:37:35] <Sal_Wyn> Balance of Terror would make an excellent film. [19:37:39] <Hannibal> Now, that would be good...... [19:37:43] <Silveira> Maybe, but it is still far less compared to Star Wars [19:37:51] <Rich> yeah [19:37:56] <Rich> itll be interesting to see [19:37:57] *** Quits: R_Mitchell (R_Mitchell@39-351-376-313.dhcp.ftwo.tx.charter.com) (Quit: http://www.kiwiirc.com/ - A hand crafted IRC client) [19:38:01] <Vetri> My Dad actually cited that episode as a classic example of anti-submarine warfare [19:38:10] <Rich> I suspect JJ Abrahms will take less liberties with episode 7 [19:38:13] <Rich> but who knows [19:38:35] <Hannibal> Your dad was dead on, Veti.... [19:38:43] <Hannibal> @Vetri.... [19:38:47] <LtCmdr_Richards> Abrams is under Lucas thumb [19:38:51] <Silveira> Yeah, that was one great episode [19:38:59] <LtCmdr_Richards> No lebs Flare since Lucas is doing the editing [19:39:05] <LtCmdr_Richards> *Lens [19:39:09] <Vie> Than god [19:39:11] <Vie> thank [19:39:18] <Hannibal> Yeah, that would be an improvemen.... [19:39:22] <Silveira> That is what lacks in Trek, just someone in control [19:39:23] <Hannibal> improvement [19:39:26] <Vie> Or Spank if you prefer the Shatner approach... [19:39:30] <Silveira> Like Lucas does [19:40:17] <Rich> I wonder why Wars always has more pop appeal than Trek. Yesterday there was a star wars reading day at the library [19:40:27] <Rich> apparently a national event [19:40:29] <Hannibal> I feel a mission coming on...... [19:40:35] *** AtimenAway is now known as Atimen [19:40:36] <Rich> I mean they both seeem equally nerdy to me lol [19:40:40] <skyfire> wait, what are we talking about? [19:40:41] <LtCmdr_James> Hey Atimen! [19:40:45] <Silveira> Single control and better publicity [19:40:48] <Atimen> Hi James! [19:40:54] <Atimen> How's it going? [19:40:55] <T_EganMannoKells> io9 published an interesting article re: developing the Trek movie franchise: http://io9.com/how-to-turn-star-trek-into-the-next-marvel-movie-univer-1643498264 [19:40:59] <Silveira> Hi Atiman [19:41:01] <Rich> HEY Atimen! [19:41:12] <Sal_Wyn> That's a good article [19:41:12] <Atimen> Hi Silveira, Rich :) [19:41:14] <Rich> I read that Tony, it is interesting! [19:41:17] <Hannibal> After DS9, ST kinda lost its way... [19:41:18] <Rich> What do you think? [19:41:47] <LtCmdr_Richards> Yeah, unfdortunately the article is trash imho [19:42:02] <LtCmdr_Richards> The reason the Marvel cinematic universe worked is patience [19:42:17] <Rich> im amazed at what they managed to build [19:42:18] <LtCmdr_Richards> It was in development at least 4 cyears before iron Man came out [19:42:34] *** Quits: Eerie (Eerie@i-42-240-59-581.hsd2.ga.comcast.net) (Quit: http://www.kiwiirc.com/ - A hand crafted IRC client) [19:42:43] <Rich> who would have ever thought guardians of the galaxy would be such a hit? [19:42:53] <LtCmdr_Richards> Marvel did [19:43:04] <T_EganMannoKells> @Rich & Richards, yeah ... I honestly didn't care for any of the Marvel movies until about the past year or so [19:43:11] <Rich> i guess thats why they get paid the big bucks and not me lol [19:43:23] <Rich> hahah rich and richards [19:43:27] <Rich> sounds like a lawfirm [19:44:02] <Sal_Wyn> But think of this: Star Trek has the highest volume of fan-produced entertainment of any other media (with the possible exception of deprived teenagers writing Harry Potter or Twilight fanfic) [19:44:19] <Sal_Wyn> The vast majority of PbEMs are Star Trek based. It has several massive fanfiction communities [19:44:25] <Rich> thats cause trek fans are super passionate [19:44:30] <Sal_Wyn> It also have more than a dozen fan funded and fan created shows [19:44:35] <Sal_Wyn> *has) [19:44:45] <T_EganMannoKells> Rich, Rich, and Richards. And @Sal, yeah, I think you're right [19:44:48] <Rich> i mean the idea of conventions started with trek [19:44:58] <Sal_Wyn> so why hasn;t anyone at Paramount tapped into this creativity and actually gotten people who *love Star trek* making new Star Trel? [19:45:15] <Rich> among other firsts too [19:45:21] <Sal_Wyn> Because it was pretty clear that Abrams did not love Star Trek and he didn;t gave a d--- about the franchise. [19:45:24] <Silveira> Because it wasn't profitable [19:45:25] <T_EganMannoKells> And it honestly surprises me that no other scifi has really embraced the core optimism of Trek [19:45:44] <T_EganMannoKells> In fact, everything's gone opposite in the past decade or so. So much grimdark, so much apocalyptic! [19:45:47] <Rich> very true tony [19:45:50] <Hannibal> Most likely because they want to attract a broader base, which means more money... [19:45:52] <Rich> but thats what makes trek special [19:45:56] <Silveira> I still say it lacks one head over all [19:46:15] <Rich> and why I always kind of roll my eye at some fan proposals on how to save trek that basically involve turning it into bsg [19:46:18] <Silveira> Correct me if I am wrong but arent' the rights split between PAramount and CBS? [19:46:23] <Rich> nothing against bsg or firefly or whatever [19:46:24] <LtCmdr_James> I think so? [19:46:31] <Lan_Riel> DS9 and Voyager were already on the darker & edgier side [19:46:31] <Rich> but thats why those shows exist anyway [19:46:46] <Sal_Wyn> Angst sells. Look what it did for the Doctor Who franchise. [19:46:53] <Silveira> Yeah [19:46:54] <T_EganMannoKells> I liked DS9 the best because it showed what had to be for that optimistic paradise to exist [19:46:58] <T_EganMannoKells> It wasn't just a given [19:46:59] <Rich> the movies are paramount [19:47:05] <Rich> the tv shows are cbs [19:47:10] *** Joins: Tatash (Tatash@06t7vvzi.skybroadband.com) [19:47:13] <Hannibal> I loved bsg and firefly, and st. not so much star wars though.... [19:47:14] <LtCmdr_James> Hello! [19:47:17] <Tatash> Allo! [19:47:23] <Silveira> There you have it It isn't in one hand [19:47:23] <Tatash> sorry i'm so late. [19:47:32] <Silveira> HI Tatash [19:47:35] <Sal_Wyn> ohai Tatash [19:47:37] <Lan_Riel> You're not late until it's over [19:47:38] <Hannibal> WElcome aboard!!!!! [19:47:42] <Tatash> Thank you! [19:47:50] <Rich> yeah. me, too, although there were some painful episodes in those first 2 seasons tony ;) [19:47:54] <Brell2334> hey Tatash [19:48:04] <Tatash> allo mate [19:48:19] <Silveira> Yeah, I admit DS9 is also my favorite [19:48:31] <T_EganMannoKells> Oh god, the first two seasons of DS9 were quite painful a lot of the time. But that's when it was trying to be Little TNG on a Station! [19:48:35] <Brell2334> I tend to watch both ds9 and tng from second season on [19:48:38] <LtCmdr_James> TNG for mr [19:48:40] <LtCmdr_James> *me [19:48:56] <Rich> I feel though you cant appreciate ds9 without the context of tng and tos [19:48:57] <Lan_Riel> The characters really did sell it for me [19:49:03] <Brell2334> err starting with third season I mean [19:49:14] <Rich> like I remember showing a friend call to arms for the first time [19:49:26] <Hannibal> The Domnion War set DS9 apart from everything. The writing got beeter, characterizations bloomed...very good work.... [19:49:31] <Rich> and I tried to explain how big a deal that was when it first aired when we saw that ending [19:49:31] <Hannibal> better [19:49:33] <Lan_Riel> (I mean, Quark, Odo, Garak... god, and Dukat) [19:49:34] <Rich> with that fleet [19:49:43] <Rich> wed never seen that many ships before [19:49:49] <Brell2334> loved the serialized aspect of ds9 [19:50:00] <Rich> i remember after that some buddies of mine were like holy sh*t! [19:50:09] <Rich> but not with CGI everywhere its old hat [19:50:15] <Rich> now with cgi' [19:50:22] <skyfire> Sal -- I had an idea for CD's next letter. [19:50:22] <Silveira> I have to go, time for dinner. I might drop by later, but cant promisse [19:50:29] <Rich> Later! [19:50:30] <Sal_Wyn> hmm??
