Welcome Back, Scotty!
How was the trip?
Personally, they can blast my ashes into space, but I wanna stay up there. At 44, I’m still planning on taking a trip to the moon whilst still breathing.

Last week there was a rumor that Ryan Gosling was interested in playing Kirk…

I saw ‘Fracture’ last night… it was an OK film id give it 5/10 however if it wasn’t for the brilliance of Anthony Hopkins then that film would have hit a mere 3/10… the Gosling was like the name suggests, about as good as a baby duck and more wooden than a ducks nest (if they have them) he reminds me of Keanu Reeves.

Point being, he would be rubbish as Kirk, Shatner was and still is a great actor… Gosling has a different style, however that isn’t what does it for me with Gosling, yea ok, maybe he could be given the benefit of the doubt with his acting on STXI but lets face it, the guy doesn’t even look like Kirk!!

If you imagine the difference between the original BSG series, and the new one: NONE of the actors chosen actually looked like their original counterparts. Hell, one black character was switched out to be a white guy and the lead character “Starbuck” was a man in the original series, and turned into a hottie chick in the new series.

Bottom line is: Don’t have to necessarily have identical looking actors to fill the shows. If it’s a reboot of TOS in the same way as the new BSG is a reboot of the original BSG, you don’t need the same exact character line-up, or the same ship etc, as long as try and follow the general principles and stories of the original.

Slooooooooooow….. … … .. .. .. … … ….. …… Is an understatement for the news this week. Perked my ears up about art asylum being bought out though… They made some really good ships.

That fan trailer was pretty cool. A great job of editing all those clips together. Pretty darned exciting!

“The Canadian Press ran a feature on the town of Vulcan, Calgary which has added a number of attractions to bring in Trekkie tourists”

I heard that NASA was looking for Vulcan. It could take a while if they’re looking for the province of Calgary though. (Calgary is the major city nearest Vulcan… both are in the province of Alberta)

#4 “Ryan Gosling…would be rubbish as Kirk”.
Absolutely right, Gosling stinks as an actor! Having him cast as Kirk would be a travesty! How Rachel McAdams can be involved with this dweeb loser is beyond imagination! This guy has zero charisma, zero talent and zero screen presence! This waste of skin shouldn’t be allowed in the theatre with a ticket! Oh, by the way, did I make it clear that I can’t stand this walking mannequin? Christ, what’s wrong with Hollywood these days?

the writers have promised to stick to trek canon, this means that the characters will be the same characters, therefore they must share the same likeness and familiarity… Battlestar is amazing as a reboot (which is what it is) Trek XI isnt a “reboot” its just a new angle of the story in canon form… so your comments although well thought out, have no real meaning here. is represented by Gorilla Nation.
