Star Trek Into Darkness
« on: 15 June 2013 11:43 PM »
I am not sure how much of this movie would be considered spoiler at this time. I really liked the movie, despite a few plot-holes and confusion. I hope this leads to a movie/series involving war with the Klingons. I believe the Klingons were treated respectfully in the movie and look forward to this cast encountering species familiar to those of us that watched the Next Generation era series.

 A series reboot with this Abramsverse timeline? Then anything is possible. The TOS series didn't introduce Kirk to Khan until later in his career, but as this 'verse is straying anywhere, why not war with the Klingons before the Romulans. Heck, why not meet the Ferengii now and get them into a war! Or perhaps the Cardasians first, then those pesky Ferengii can show up for a profit. ;)

I always thought the Klingons and the Romulans were allies against the Federation during that time frame. I don't quite understand why the Klingon scout wanted to kill Uhura. Did he feel insulted?

I liked Khan, but it was a shame he didn't have more dialogue.  I also am happy that his people won't have to suffer in this timeline they did in the main one. To Reign in Hell is one of the saddest books I have ever read.

 The UFP's first war was with the Klingons, and although Romulus was not at war with he Federation, they were not aligned with the Klingon's either against the Federation. But, they did behind the scenes contact with each other. That is how the Klingons and Romulans traded cloaking technology.

 Although Khan is seen in a stasis tube at the ending of the movie, it does however set up a future contact between he and Kirk in the JJverse future. I however, liked Montelban better as Khan.

 Call me an old trekkie. heh heh. I watched 'The Cage' on a B&W television when it first aired.

Sorry to take so long to get back to this topic. I think this series is doing what it intended to do, which was to get people around my age interested in the franchise. Since people my age get interested, there is more merchandise and DVDs for older fans. I get to learn details from older fans, and everyone benefits.

 While I can agree with that logic Cleo, some of the scene's in the movie were patently not trek; IMHO.
 For instance, how can you obscure the obvious fact that building the Enterprise on the planet surface is not as possible as it's obvious on-screen WOW factor intent. How do you get those millions of tonnes of ship off the surface, when the ship itself was never designed for atmospheric flight?
 Some of these cinematic guffaw's were what turned off many of us "elder" trekkies.

Star Trek Into Darkness still manages to be an even more enjoyable film than its precursor.
