Does anyone know if these are selling well? Are we going to get a Spock?


In Topic: The reason Trek Canon Is being erased?

nope. they pretty much just kept building on the film continuity for the I:m movies...

 

The first film had the Jim Phelps character (like Star Trek 2009 has Kirk and Spock) but played by a different actor (same as 2009). The film established a new continuity within the film series apart from what we saw in the original series 66-73 and the newer series 88-89. And yes, there are fans of the original that don't like the Tom Cruise film series....

Well, it's not an exact comparison...but the two franchises are related if you know the history. There was a brief comeback of M:I in the 80s but it wasn't all that good or well liked (perhaps like Enterprise wasn't?) so in 1995 we got the feature film which did great but, to me, diverged from the formula of the original series (Greg Morris reportedly hated it, I'm not sure how Nimoy or Graves felt). So M:I went on to be a totally different thing. The same happened with Star Trek 2009. Big, blockbuster film that departed from the formula of previous Treks and it hasn't been the same since. People say "well, there were people who said the same thing about TNG when it came out," but I was young when TNG came out and I grew up watching it, DS9 and Voyager. I didn't discover TOS until the 2004 DVD release (I had seen it before but wasn't able to see much). So I guess there are people now who have "grown up" with Chris Pine as Kirk and I guess the recent news would be not so great for them, they have my sympathy. I just "know what I like" and that is mainly TOS after the past 15 years. I re-watch it a few times a week. Sorry if I seem brash at times, I am not always as sensitive about things as I should be when I get talking online. I still love collecting Trek which is why I still come to these forums to see what people have to say about the new collectibles. Perhaps I shouldn't have waded into this subject and kept my mouth shut? Who knows.

The destruction of Romulus and potential collapse of the Romulan Star Emprire has so many great story opportunities.

Really looking forward to this series.

 

Will it have TNG Klingons or Discovery Klingons I wonder? I hope this show does well. They say it will be a "different Picard" I am not sure what they mean besides him being older and in a different occupation.
