Watch: ‘Gangnam Style’ Parody ‘Klingon Style’ Sung Almost Entirely in Klingon October 1, 2012

by Kayla Iacovino , Filed under: Fan Productions,Humor,Viral Video/Mashup/Images , trackback

Well, that didn’t take long. Yes, we already have a Star Trekified parody of the popular Korean ‘Gangnam Style’ music video — this time, sung almost completely in Klingon. The video is actually of rather impressive quality, with all of the lyrics sung in Klingon, and the dancers in full Trek garb shooting on location. Very nicely done. Hit the jump for the video.


Opa Klingon Style

UPDATE: Video available online again

That tennis court is not canon.

2. Prometheus - October 1, 2012

I prefer no news updates to this to be honest…
Is there still a new movie coming?

3. Nomad - October 1, 2012

I thought that was really well done. Great singing.

4. USS - October 1, 2012

#2: I think your sense of humor got beamed off the ship :P

Loved the video, very well done and true to the original.

5. Hodge Podge - October 1, 2012

Hi Kayla, I don’t know how much free time you have but it would be awesome if you could contribute to keeping this site going, and covering news (when there actually is news…)

6. n1701ncc - October 1, 2012

Opps I thought this was the new trailer for the new movie. Bob O. how much longer do we have to wait or is that a secret too!!!!!!

7. Bored, Bored, Bored with Star Trek. - October 1, 2012

Well, at least it’s a new post… too bad it’s week old news… I guess ‘the source for everything related to trek’ is now just ‘reposting of old news everyone already knows.. and fans putting links to movie news in their posts.

At least it’s new to this site…

*yawn*

8. Bird of Prey - October 1, 2012

Pay attention to the background: Two women in TOS uniforms fighting over a tribble! :-D (And later, the Klingon attempts to drown the poor critter…)

9. George - October 1, 2012

I like it better than the actual video, the starfleet chicks are hot!

10. LongIslandTrekster - October 1, 2012

This site continues to loose it’s luster day-by-day.

11. duncan.macleod - October 1, 2012

You all act like you are paying a subscription feed to this site, that it is not done purely for free. Go find another site if you don’t like it.

12. Captain Ranson's back - October 1, 2012

@7 Bored, Bored, Bored with Star Trek

So something gets posted and you still whine. Go away troll.

13. rm10019 - October 1, 2012

12 – lol exactly. Glad he keeps the site on his heavy rotation to check to see if there is something to whine about every 45 minutes lol. What a fool.

14. Thor - October 1, 2012

The 2913 movie will be a box office fiasco.

15. Montreal_Paul - October 1, 2012

Wow! People were complaining that nothing was being posted and now those same people are whining about what was posted. If you feel so slighted by this sight or hate what’s being posted… GO AWAY! It’s no wonder Anthony & the contributors aren’t posting here. What a bunch of ingrates!

On to the post at hand! I think it was extremely well done! I was wondering when there was going to be a Trek parody of this song. Thanks for posting Kayla!

16. Shunnabunich - October 1, 2012

@10: Interesting that the lustre of trekmovie.com appears to be correlated to your grammar skills, in that case.

By the way, a former friend punched me in the eye the other day and called me weird because “Medea” is head of Star Fleet.

What could I do?

Hopefully JJ changes this in the new movie.

Wow, your friend must have been fired at Paramount – no news of any kind for weeks and you come back with this?? Trektoday even has better news and they suck!!

24. Red Dead Ryan - October 1, 2012

Okay, that video was pretty bad. :-)

But thanks anyway, Kayla! Really appreciate it!

28. CoffeeProf - October 1, 2012

I think some of you maladjusted malcontents need to realize that no one is forcing your here and we’re tired of your CONSTANT b***hing and griping. If you don’t like this site, then STOP COMING TO IT.

29. Pointing Out The Obvious - October 1, 2012

@1 I’ll see your wrong claim and raise you this: http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Tennis

30. SoonerDave - October 1, 2012

@28 If you don’t like the complaining, why do you feel compelled to respond to it?

31. TBonz - October 1, 2012

“Trektoday even has better news and they suck!!”

LOL. Damned with faint praise.

Thanks for the Monday giggle.

I like how the Data doppelganger (in the parking garage) actually “dances” like Data in “Data’s day” when Crusher teaches him stepdancing on the holodeck.

33. MJ - October 1, 2012

Kayla, while I appreciate you trying to cover for an AWOL Anthony here, I think it is a sad say for this site when we get fill-in stories like this to cover for Anthony’s near-abandonment of this once great site.

34. MJ - October 1, 2012

@ 28 “I think some of you maladjusted malcontents need to realize that no one is forcing your here and we’re tired of your CONSTANT b***hing and griping. If you don’t like this site, then STOP COMING TO IT.”

But if I stopped coming here, then I wouldn’t get to read the incessant “complainers about the complainers” posts from people like you. Your are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

35. MJ - October 1, 2012

“Wow, your friend must have been fired at Paramount – no news of any kind for weeks and you come back with this?? Trektoday even has better news and they suck!!”

YEP !!!!!

36. MJ - October 1, 2012

“Wow! People were complaining that nothing was being posted and now those same people are whining about what was posted. If you feel so slighted by this sight or hate what’s being posted… GO AWAY! It’s no wonder Anthony & the contributors aren’t posting here. What a bunch of ingrates!”

You are completely missing the point, Montreal Paul. I, for one, am not feeling slighted by this article. In the old days, when this site had mutlple artcipes per week, this would certainly been a fun diversion article. But these days, with Anthony pretty much having abandoned the site, and poor Kayla and the comic book guy trying to put in an article or so a week to cover for Anthony’s latest disappeance, yea, seeing this kind of article in the absence of real news in the quality of “THE source for everything new in Trek,” — yea, dude, this kind of pisses me off. And no, I don’t think I am an ingrate or owe anyone an apology for stating so. I want this site to be great again.

37. Captain Ransom's back - October 1, 2012

@ 32 MJ

So since you are one of the whiners about nothing being posted here – and you are complaining about this being posted here. How about clearing up what you actually want. Would you prefer “filler” stories until there is some actual news or would you prefer no news until actual news comes out. Or wait, would you prefer they make up news? You are actually one of the biggest whiners here. You complain when there are no new articles and you complain when there are articles.

38. WillH85 - October 1, 2012

Just doesn’t seem to be very funny to me. I think it’s just hard to capture what makes the original such a hit. Good effort, though. Couldn’t be easy to translate all that.

39. MJ - October 1, 2012

@37. Here are just a few of the stories just in the past five days on Trektoday:

TAKEI TO APPEAR ON NBC COMEDY

SHIMERMAN ON CASTLE

FARRAGUT FEST

Trektoday provides regular new news of Trek. This site, Trekmovie.com, boldly proclaims:

THE SOURCE FOR EVERYTHING NEW IN TREK

So, I would turn the question to you. Is this site currently the source for everything new in Trek, or is is completely and utterly failing to live up to that proclamation?

40. Captain Ransom's back - October 1, 2012

@38 MJ

And if I remember correctly, you prefer none of the stuff. You would rather news on the movie. No? You have mentioned it a few times in the past. Whenever something “non-movie” related was posted you were the first to complain about it. Recently, you complained about the TrekInk article and again on this one. Hmmm. Once a whiner and complainer, always a whiner and complainer.

41. MJ - October 1, 2012

You obviously don’t want to discuss this — you seem most interested in making a personal attack on me for some perceived injustice or emotional response to my posts in the pasts. Too bad, because when I actually tried to respond to you by showing you ACTUAL EXAMPLES of regular Trek news stories on a Trek site that is a working source for new and regular articles on Trek, you chose instead to ignore the substance and launch into your emotional rant against. me.

“And if I remember correctly, you prefer none of the stuff.”

Nope — your memory is poor. I like a lot of stuff on this site, and have posted so on multiple articles in the past. For example, I love the Science articles by Kayla, and have posted on those frequently including the latest one.

“You would rather news on the movie. No? You have mentioned it a few times in the past. Whenever something “non-movie” related was posted you were the first to complain about it.”

Don’t we all want more news on the movie? I mean, we are here on this site called trekMOVIE.com…duh! Congrats on this groundbreaking deduction, Sherlock. LOL

42. workforkirk - October 1, 2012

BETTA WERQ~ YES! Hilarious!

43. Captain Ransom's back - October 1, 2012

@40 MJ

Did you not agree with someone on the TrekInk article that after no news they post a review about “a lousy 7 page comic”? Oh wait – let me refresh your memory:

“Ten days of absolutely NO news, and all we get is a review of a lousy 7 page comic book, that very few will buy and read. Yawn. Didn’t I hear they are going to make another Star Trek movie?… I seem to remember some sort of rumor along those lines… oh, right.. It’s a freaking secret.. god forbid, we actually get news about that.”

AGREED !!!!!

You come across as a smug know-it-all, MJ.

44. MJ - October 1, 2012

The comment on the comic was in relation to virtually no other significant news on this site. If you would have cared to have read my post above where I tried to respond to Montreal Paul, I specifically stated:

“You are completely missing the point, Montreal Paul. I, for one, am not feeling slighted by this article. In the old days, when this site had multiple articles per week, this would certainly been a fun diversion article. But these days, with Anthony pretty much having abandoned the site, and poor Kayla and the comic book guy trying to put in an article or so a week to cover for Anthony’s latest disappearance, yea, seeing this kind of article in the absence of real news in the quality of “THE source for everything new in Trek,” — yea, dude, this kind of pisses me off. And no, I don’t think I am an ingrate or owe anyone an apology for stating so. I want this site to be great again.”

45. MJ - October 1, 2012

“You come across as a smug know-it-all, MJ.”

Well, I certainly hope so! :-) Perhaps the difference between you and I is that I realize I am one and freely admit it.

46. Red Shirt Diaries - October 1, 2012

All, it should be known that this Captain Ransom has been attacking multiple posters over the past couple of days as well on this site. As one example, here is a response he provided to someone on the recent Science Saturday article:

“No but all you do is whine! How crap… go away if you don’t like what is on this site. They is no news right now. Get that trough your tiny little brain. If you don’t like that fact, then go away and read the non-news on other sites. I am tired of your trolling and tired of your whining,”

And here are some other examples of his belligerent attacks over the past couple of days — he has been on quite a roll:

“Of course you got what you wanted… parents usually give into their whiny kids after a tantrum. ;) lol”

“And why don’t you post your usual nickname? Just being a coward to not show who you really are? What a dick.”

“Oh… by the way, You going to eat crow when the movie succeeds without you? Who cares if you don’t care about the movie. If you think that people won’t go to the movie because they are in post production and there is no news yet that they will boycott the movie…. well, I have to know – what color is the sky in your world? Hahahaha.”

“By the way – use your usual name. Coward. Wow. What a douchebag.”

47. Jonboc - October 1, 2012

#7. “Well, at least it’s a new post… too bad it’s week old news”

Not unlike your tired diatribes against this site. Such a sad commentary that a reader can’t enjoy a new article, rare as it may be, without having to endure your continuous mindless prattle. Give it a rest and go haunt Ain’t it Cool News for awhile.

48. Jonboc - October 1, 2012

#10. “This site continues to loose it’s luster day-by-day.”

…too bad it’s not losing more of its readers.

49. Montreal_Paul - October 1, 2012

45. Red Shirt Diaries

To me, this guy isn’t any different from all the other loud, rude and arrogant people on this site. With all due respect and no offense to MJ and Ryan, they can be quite vocal and talk down to people too. Some people are just like that with their personalities.

But I do agree with what he essentially saying about the whining on here. It really is getting too much. I think I am just going to stick to reading the articles and not the comments anymore.

I understand that people are upset that there isn’t any new news on here and that Anthony has gone MIA. But jeez, I am just as annoyed with the whining about it!

So with that being said, I think I will take a break from reading comments on here for awhile. I’ll be around and be back posting closer to the movie date. This is a good site… but I think the inmates are running the asylum now. Catch you all in the future guys.

Oh, and MJ … I did read your post to me above. Understood. and agree… somewhat. ;)

50. Jonboc - October 1, 2012

#38. “So, I would turn the question to you. Is this site currently the source for everything new in Trek, or is is completely and utterly failing to live up to that proclamation?”

Yes, yes, a thousand times yes…failing completely and utterly!! There is nothing newsworthy to see here. Anthony is not living up to his promise to fulfill all your Trekky desires! Yep, Anthony has some nerve. If I were you, I wouldn’t stand for it. You should leave, that would really show em!! :)

51. Kevman7987 - October 1, 2012

Ignoring the lamest of all flamewars breaking out in this comment section, the outrageous Star trek parody of an already ridiculous video was funny.

52. Craiger - October 1, 2012

Look they are promoting the new Lone Ranger with new images and that is coming out in 2013.

http://collider.com/the-lone-ranger-images/199108/

53. Captain Ransom' back - October 1, 2012

@45 Red Shirt Diaries

All those examples you posted, did you happen to notice who they were directed at? One person, The guy that calls himself “Bored with Trek.”

@ Jonboc

I like the way you think!

54. ironhyde - October 1, 2012

Everyone relax. The problem isn’t Anthony. It’s JJ Abrams and his secrecy. :) There is nothing to report, there is no news, so whatever else is picked up off the net, is really just nothing anyway. Orci said the same, dont be so hard on Anthony and this site — there’s nothing to report.

So, here’s a tip!! If you use an iphone or ipad, grab a Free app called Zite. It’s like a customizable magazine that you can use keywords to autosearch google or the net for articles every day that match those words. Put in Star Trek. You still get nothing, because JJ Abrams loves his secrecy.. but it’s a nice way of compiling all Star Trek news into one. Let’s stop focusing on the problem and start making solutions. :)

To be honest, what I miss on other sites, is the community (inlcuding Orci and Sternbach), the comments, the reactions, the debates. That has always been my favorite part of Trekmovie — and it’s what’s missing elsewhere. But if you want news, try Zite.

55. Craiger - October 1, 2012

Maybe we should all go over to TrekToday and TrekBBS to get Trek news and char since Anthony has abandonded us?

Also if Anthony takes down The Source For Everything New In Trek maybe we wouldn’t complain at because that would at least be a status update.

56. Craiger - October 1, 2012

They are promoting the new Lone Ranger with new images and that film isn’t out until 2013.

http://collider.com/the-lone-ranger-images/199108/

57. Red Shirt Diaries - October 1, 2012

#52 You were also slamming Red Dead Ryan, a regular on this site who has posted here for years. The people you are attacking are regulars here.

58. Red Shirt Diaries - October 1, 2012

#49 “Yes, yes, a thousand times yes…failing completely and utterly!! There is nothing newsworthy to see here.”

While I realize that Jonbox is taking this to an extreme as an attempt at sarcasm, this attempt fails, because sadly enough, this statement is closer to the truth than not. I wish it were not so.

59. Captain Ransom's back - October 1, 2012

@56 Red Shirt Diaries

I’m a regular here! Are you now Ryan’s bodyguard? Why don’t you read the original posts I was replying to and see what they are about. Before you throw stones, why don’t you get all your info first. If someone is constantly whining about the same thing over and over – I will call them out on it. Whether that is “Bored with Trek”, Ryan, MJ or anyone else. I was posting here for the past few years. That gives me a right to voice my opinion as much as they do. And my opinion is that they whine whether there are articles or not.

60. MJ - October 1, 2012

Jonboc, you really wouldn’t want us to leave, as you “make a living” here on “complaining about the complainers.” You were one of the pioneers on this site in complaining about the complainers, and I would expect that if someone went to the trouble of searching all of your posts form the past several years on this site, they would find that the vast majority involved you bitching and moaning about people that you perceive as complaining.

Let me pay you a compliment here — you exceed me in being a consummate complainer on this site. You are unparalleled in your ability to bitch here. The rest of us who complain are just in awe of you. YOU RULE, DUDE !!!!!

61. Red Shirt Diaries - October 1, 2012

#59 Agreed MJ. If I had a twenty-spot for every bitching and moaning post of Jonboc’s over the past year, I’d have enough money for a week-long trip to Vegas by now. And if you are the Darth Vader of bitching, well by comparison, Jonboc is the Emperor Palpatine of bitching. LOL

#58 “If someone is constantly whining about the same thing over and over.”

You mean like you have been doing incessantly to multiple people over the past several days. Take a good look in the mirror.

62. NCM - October 1, 2012

LOL, thank, Kayla.

63. Captain Ransom's back - October 1, 2012

@60 Red Shirt Diaries

How so? So people who whine about no news and then whine when articles go up are okay with you? You are fine with that? You like to hear people complaining about no news and complain about things they have no control over? Or are you just one of the sheeple that will do the same?

At least I am voicing my opinion on something that is right in front of me – tell the whiners to stop. How does whining about no news and then whining when articles are posted accomplish anything?

It’s no wonder contributes don’t want to post here anymore – you guys have the “thanks but no thanks” attitude. When people like Kayla read the wonderful posts like:

2. Prometheus
I prefer no news updates to this to be honest…

7. Bored, Bored, Bored with Star Trek.
Well, at least it’s a new post… too bad it’s week old news…

23. Landru
Wow, your friend must have been fired at Paramount – no news of any kind for weeks and you come back with this??

32. MJ
I think it is a sad say for this site when we get fill-in stories like this to cover for Anthony’s near-abandonment of this once great site.

…just to show a few. And just from this article. So, why would a contributor want to post here anymore with those comments? Answer me that if you can.

64. Simon - October 1, 2012

@ #11 – And people continue to *lose* the ability to spell LOSE correctly without adding another “O” for prophets-know-why reason.

65. Red Shirt Diaries - October 1, 2012

@54 “Also if Anthony takes down The Source For Everything New In Trek maybe we wouldn’t complain at because that would at least be a status update.”

Exactly. That is the biggest issue I have here. If Anthony takes that bold, audacious and now unfortunately untruthful proclamation down from the header of this website, then as I have said before, I will never discuss the topic of the lack on news or Anthony’s continued unexplained disappearances ever again.

But to continue to boldly proclaim to the public, “THE source for everything new in Trek,” but then to throw out only one story per week that maybe hits on a comic book or a you-tube fan comedy posting…that is just not credible, and frankly is an embarrassment to Anthony and his supporters who visit this site every day.

66. Bored, Bored, Bored with Star Trek. - October 1, 2012

Apparently, ‘Captain Ransom’s back’ ( NOT HIS REAL NAME) has been posting here so long, it gives him the right to berate people and call them names. No one is immune from his wrath.

The poster above making a point about the Lone Ranger movie is making the same point as I am… only with a different point of view…

Are you going to call him names, now too, ‘Captain whatever your name is’?

*yawn*

67. K-7 - October 1, 2012

Joining this conversation later, but in this article and the other most recent article on the Sunday Science article, the person who is constantly driving the discussion with complaining and negativity is this “Captain Ransom’s back” character. And he is stating the same thing over and over in his rants.

Has anyone ever seen this person posting here before? Might this be Stunkill again posing as someone else?

68. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

I actually enjoyed the video. I too have been posting here for years. Not as frequently as all the other regulars, and I may have gone under the name Trekker1091, but I have been around ever since I first discovered this wonderful site in late 2008. And I DO try to read most of the comments, and I DO read all the articles. It gives me a laugh every time. Not because of what the regulars say, no, but because of all the haters that keep bitching no matter what the regulars say or what the article is about.

As for Trekmovie itself not living up to their promise, like others have said, it’s not Anthony’s fault. It is JJ’s. Its his secrecy about the 2013 movie that is the reason there is no news or new articles all the time, or would all you haters prefer to see a post once a week about how there’s no news?

So, all you haters out there, please do go and get what any normal person would call…you know…a life. Let the people that actually care about Trekmovie do the posting. Though if you want to continue to post your hate mongering comments to continue to entertain and allow everyone to laugh at you, that’s OK too! Anyway, just thought I’d say my peace.

69. K-7 - October 1, 2012

Great, now we have another person who labels people as “haters”. Wonderful!

Here is something that you can take the back — anyone who calls people “haters” is in fact a true hater themselves Just name-calling that against other people shows what lack of character that person has. This is the kind of person who in our parents’ generation would have said” “some of my best friends are blacks.”

People need to stop confusing bickering on a Trek message boards between Trek fans with “HATE” Come on people.

70. AJ - October 1, 2012

I think you ladies should all go out and get some air.

71. Craiger - October 1, 2012

Strange how that the absense of new has generated haters of the complainers. :LOL. Such a shame the downfall of such a great site.

72. Captain Ransom's back - October 1, 2012

@64 Red Shirt Diaries

You have got to be kidding me!! You are telling me that everyone is bitching and moaning – not because there is no news – but because the TAGLINE is still there????? So if the TAGLINE is taken down, then everyone will stop bitching and whining? Really. I doubt that.

73. Craiger - October 1, 2012

Mikey as we have stated before and the haters of the complainers don’t seem to understand is that you don’t put a tagline – The Source For Everything New Trek unless you mean it. Now maybe Anthony shouldn’t have put that up their if he thought he was going to be in over his head with that tagline. That tagline means to me not sure about others that you post every single piece of news about Star Trek no matter how small.

74. Craiger - October 1, 2012

I also think the complaining would stop if they would at least post a status update on the site. If not from Anthony himself because he is too busy to do it but at least relay one to Kayla and she could post it.

75. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

@ 68. You do have a point, K-7. I don’t want to be a hater myself. I certainly don’t see myself as one, though I may seem as one to others. When I said “haters” it was meant to describe all the trolls that have been posting meaningless rants on Trekmovie that no one wants to read. So in retrospect, “haters” is indeed not a word I should not have used, and for that I apologize.

76. MJ - October 1, 2012

@70. Yea Craiger, we get like three articles in a month and you would think these guys are celebrating how great this site is for news all of a sudden? WTF? Whatever these fans are smoking, please mail me some of that stuff.

I guess they all TOOK THE RED PILL. LOL

77. K-7 - October 1, 2012

OK Mikey, sounds good. Thanks.

78. AdmNaismith - October 1, 2012

I laughed ’cause that was funny and very well done.

Thank you for posting it.

79. MJ - October 1, 2012

@71. Yea, if they pull the tagline down, I will stop complaining about the lack of news. If you are going to boldly proclaim something like that publicly, they if you don’t live up to it, you should expect criticism from your website audience.

80. Captain Ransom's back - October 1, 2012

@78 MJ

Then why don’t you email Anthony, tell him this and ask him to remove the tagline. Then we can get back to business here. I think his email address is on the Admin contacts page. Let’s see if that unrealistic and misleading tagline can be taken down asap!

81. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

@ 72: Very good point, Craiger. And I do agree with you about the tagline.

@78: Agreed.

82. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

@ 72: Very good point, Craiger. And I do agree with you about the tagline.

@78: Agreed.

83. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

Oh for…Sorry for the double post, my net seems to be acting up tonight.

84. MJ - October 1, 2012

I emailed him already on that a couple months back — no response — guess his attitude in responding to emails is about as lackadaisical as his attention to the site these days.

I am at the point where I wish he gave a shit enough to scold me for my posts — any fracking sign from him to show he still cared about this site would welcome at this point.

Same here MJ. Should we email Kayla and get her to email Anthony so she could post a status update. Even if Anthony wants to rest up because he sees a constant non stop of sequel news coming in 2013 then he is really not living up to the sites tagline if this is going to be the sites new sop.

87. MJ - October 1, 2012

Great idea, Craiger.

88. Daoud - October 1, 2012

Chris Doohan has posted that another Star Trek Continues vignette has been uploaded. An interesting bit that one could imagine happening early in the TOS’ second season, when Chekov had just joined the bridge crew.

89. MJ - October 1, 2012

@87. What a shock that there is no article here covering that. Nor was there and article last week on how the USS Faragut set was opened up to the public for viewing.

Very disappointing….I wonder if all of the advertisers on this site know how dilapidated it has become? I imagine that Anthony is still getting a few hundred bucks AT LEAST per month from the web ads here. I hope Kayla sees some of that given she is doing all the work here now?

90. K-7 - October 1, 2012

Guys, what would you all think about all of us in mass sending emails to Anthony suggesting that he turn the site over to Kayla to run/continue

91. Craiger - October 1, 2012

K-7 Kayla’s doing her best but Anthony is the one with all the contacts in the Trek industry. Unless he would turn those over to Kayla? That is another thing I liked about this site is Anthony getting news from inside sources.

92. Craiger - October 1, 2012

Also when Anthony came back the last time from one of his long breaks he didn’t even post why he was gone for that long and why he was taking constant breaks. I guess he thinks he doesn’t need to see he can count on us to be here anyway?

93. CoffeeProf - October 1, 2012

Oh….I get it now. MJ is just being a troll. At least he’s not as bad as Databrain.

94. CmdrR - October 1, 2012

87 – Daoud, thanks… and now to share:

They seem to be enjoying themselves. Can’t wait to see a full ep.

95. Craiger - October 1, 2012

#92 – MJ, isn’t a troll, he has been a long time member of this site.

96. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

@92: I suppose since you’re going to call someone who’s been a regular here for years a troll, then you yourself must be a troll as well? It’s kind of a shame we have trolls here on Trekmovie, but there isn’t much that can be done about it.

97. Captain Ransom's back - October 1, 2012

@94 Craiger

Just because some has been here a long time doesn’t mean they can’t leave trolling comments.

98. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

@95: That’s actually a good point.

99. jamesingeneva - October 1, 2012

I’m a regular here! I was posting here for the past few years. That gives me a right to voice my opinion as much as they do.

Your right to your opinion does not extend to berating people and calling them a douchebag because they don’t share YOUR opinion!

@100 Enterprisingguy

Before you throw stones, did you see the comment I was replying to? Do you know who I was calling a douchebag? Or did you just read the copied & pasted reply above? Just curious.

103. Red Dead Ryan - October 1, 2012

Jesus Fracking Christ, I go out all day and when I come back, the usual bunch (Jonboc, Montreal_Paul, and Captain Ransom’s back) are still labelling the rest of us as “haters” and “whiners”, simply because we express some disappointment in how the site has been run lately.

The worst offender is Captain Ransom’s back, who should alter his name to Captain Ransom’s BACKSIDE since he’s been a total ASS the last couple of days! :-)

104. MJ - October 1, 2012

It always amuses me that when the “complainers about the complainers” inevitably show up, they always get so over the top emotional with their name calling — douchebag, haters, dicks, etc. etc.

For the vast majority of us who have the continuing complaint here about the articles — simply because we miss the past greatness of this site — we never reduces ourselves to the vitriolic level that the complainers about the complainers mostly seem to resort to.

Many of the “complainers about the complainers” are typically vindictive name-callers, and would not be the kind of Trek fans that most of us would want to have a beer with. I expect that most of these folks are people unhappy with their daily lives…and this is their best form of self-aggrandizement.

You continual complainers talk down to people, we name call. We’re all happy!

@102 Red Dead Ryan

Looks like your buddy Montreal Paul has been scared away by you and your kind. Bravo. Happy now? But don’t worry, I’ll be sticking around. And now look who’s name calling. You talk down to people AND name call – hey, aren’t you well rounded.

108. Henry Borresterogolornog - October 1, 2012

Are some Trek fans losing their minds waiting for this film?

This crap is nonsense.

#106 – ‘Captain’ Ransom’s back..

#103 MJ is dead right to call it like it is… you are a bully, and a name caller, and there are those that want information about Star Trek and we simply aren’t getting any from this site anymore…

Call me a name again, Captain.. go ahead.. bring it on. I’m a freaking hater..

110. Captain Ransom's back - October 1, 2012

@108 Bored, Bored, Bored with Star Trek.

You are the worst offender.

111. Duane Boda - October 1, 2012

Well IF one could forget just how girlie silly it is

then it’s actually quite good and very creative.

And though its nothing the common person would

try to do in fact its something that’s quite very difficult.

so it should be recognized for that in itself – right?

112. MJ - October 1, 2012

@106 “You continual complainers talk down to people, we name call. We’re all happy!”

LOL ;-)

113. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

I have a great idea. How about we stop all the bitching and moaning at each other and try to hold an actual discussion? Is that so bad an idea, or am I simply talking to thin air?

Just because you’ve been here for years doesn’t mean that you can’t be a troll. Just go on any forum. Also say that a post you wrote makes a good point in another post is kind of narcissistic.

117. Red Dead Ryan - October 1, 2012

#106.

Well, Montreal_Paul couldn’t deal with the fact that we’ve called him out for his numerous “factual inaccuracies”.

And oh yeah, Captain Ransom’s back, you can stop with the sockpuppeteering. We know its you, Stunkill. :-)

118. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

@116 Red Dead Ryan

I think Montreal Paul left because he was annoyed with constant whiners like you. I have read how you talk down to people, you are just a bully. It’s not Anthony’s lack of news that is pushing people away, it’s people like you and your holier than thou attitude. Just because you have been on this board for a long time you feel you run it. Someone says something and you have to be the bigger dog and piss on your territory.

Oh, and I am not stunkill, I have been on this board for a long time. But I do know who stunkill is now though. Just read all the comments and you will see his syntax structure. I figured it out on one of the other boards – I’m surprised the mighty Ryan hasn’t yet though. But I can assure you, I am not stunkill.

119. Red Dead Ryan - October 1, 2012

“I think Montreal Paul left because he was annoyed with constant whiners like you. I have read how you talk down to people, you are just a bully.

Hey, Einstein, why don’t you read what I posted at #24.

“But thanks anyway, Kayla! Really appreciate it!”

That was in response to the video posted, which, after watching it, didn’t think it was very good. But I appreciated the fact that it was posted. Because I like reading people’s opinions about it. I guess you conveniently ignored it, because it gets in your way of launching attacks against me.

As for my so-called “holier than thou attitude”, well, I’ll advise you to look in a mirror. Because what you’ll find is something strikingly similar to what you are labelling me as having.

120. AJ - October 1, 2012

Well, I want to be the first ‘complainer about the complainers about the complainers.’

What are you people all smoking?

121. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

@118 Red Dead Ryan

No shit Sherlock, I read your post. I am talking about in general. The past couple of years you having been pulling this alpha dog bully crap. And since Anthony went MIA, you have been leading the whining charge. Perhaps people are just sick of your attitude. Tired of being put down by people like you for standing up to you. I may have just begun with the holier than thou attitude, but you have had it all along my friend.

122. Red Dead Ryan - October 1, 2012

#120.

LOL!

Hey, I didn’t put you down! You came on this site and started attacking me, MJ, K-7, Craiger, Red Shirt Diaries, and others who have a different opinion from your own.

I only put you down after you came out here with your own “holier than thou” attitude which you used to berate us with.

Talk about a pot calling the kettle black!

Sheesh!

123. Craiger - October 1, 2012

#120 – If these chats were moderated you would have got banned using foul langauage. Geez, this site isn’t even moderated anymore.

124. Red Dead Ryan - October 1, 2012

#122.

Exactly!!!

And what these folks seem to forget is, if it wasn’t for us “whiners”, they wouldn’t have this article, and the Science thread, for them to be able to launch their attacks!

125. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

@121. Red Dead Ryan

LOL and YOU are accusing me of attacking people with differing opinions than mine?!? Well, I must have learned that from you. That is your M.O. on this board for the past couple of years. Talk like you own it and berate people for their differing opinions because that aren’t like yours. You have constantly done that Ryan. So maybe I learned that from you. You piss on everyone and stake your claim here as if you run it. Hmmm – I don’t believe I have ever said anything to K7. But you, MJ and Diaries all spew the same think over and over again. Like others, I am sick of the whining about no news and then whining that anything other than movie news is drivel. If you have an issue with the site, there are email addresses on the Admin page. Email them all and voice your opinion rather than whine about it. As for me, I am taking it up directly with you and whomever else.

126. Craiger - October 1, 2012

RDR – Do you think Kayla and maybe Anthony did get sick of whiners and finally decided to post one article just to shut us up? If that’s case why even bother keeping this site up if they are tired of running it? Just curious. Not siding with the complainers who complain about us so called whiners.

127. Craiger - October 1, 2012

Ransom – again you forget about this sites tagline – that is the main thing we are talking about. You don’t put somethine like that up on a website and not expect to adhear to it. Then you are just letting fans of this site down. That tagline would mean daily and multiple posts about Trek news. They also sometimes had Scifi news. Unless their is no more news about what the old Trek stars are up to, Trek products, comics, toys ect. That is more things that apply to The Source For Everything New In Trek. If he has gotten to busy to maintain this site then the tagline should come then most of us would probably leave and go elsewhere. Unless Anthony doesn’t want that to happen.

128. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

@125. Craiger

FINALLY! Someone actually read my posts and “gets it.” That is exactly what I have been saying all along.

129. Craiger - October 1, 2012

I mean tagline should come down in my last post.

130. Craiger - October 1, 2012

Ransom if that’s the case then why bother to have this site up at all if that’s the case. If it weren’t for us loyal viewers of this site their wouldn’t be any Trekmovie.com.

131. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

Craiger, a tagline is just a tagline. Just a catchy phrase. A marketing tool. Every Trek site thinks they are THE word on everything Trek.

You can have Anthony take the tagline down but that will change nothing. Honestly, people on here will still whine about no news on this site.

But hey, like I mentioned, why not email Anthony and all the other administrators – not just you bit Ryan and MJ and whomever else. Inundate them with your emails of distaste for how this site is run.. maybe… just maybe something will be done.

132. Craiger - October 1, 2012

Ransom – Anthony never returns email. I think taking the tagline down would change alot we would then know that Anthony doesn’t care running this site full time anymore and this would become a part-time Trek news site and us loyal viewers would go elsewhere for Trek news. I am not sure Anthony would want that however because doesn’t he get money everytime someone clicks on the main page or clicks an article because their is advertising on this web site.

133. K-7 - October 1, 2012

From all this, I agree with Ryan — Captain Ransom is Stunkill. It is especially telling the way he got lazy already and moved from “Captain Ransom”s back” to “Captain Ransom.” WHOOPS!!! Like we are not going to notice that error in his sock-puppetry.

Nice try Stunkill — busted again!

134. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

Craiger, if Anthony won’t answer his emails, email the other administrators. There are a lot of people on the contact page. Someone is bound to notice that way. But if Anthony isn’t answering emails – why would he pay attention to the whining about the site? It’s counter productive and falling upon deaf ears. All it does is annoy everyone else. If Ryan and MJ and Bored with Trek and the others feel that strongly about this site, then they should ALL start emailing everyone on the list in hopes that someone will respond. Sending one email weeks back from one person will do nothing. Know what I mean?

135. K-7 - October 1, 2012

@130. “Craiger, a tagline is just a tagline. Just a catchy phrase. A marketing tool. Every Trek site thinks they are THE word on everything Trek.”

Hey Stunkill, are you just pulling this stuff out of your ass. Just went to the two other biggies — Trekweb.com and Trektoday.com, and contrary to you inference, neither of those has a tagline that makes some bold proclamation that they are better than other Trek websites.

I will name-call you now: LIAR!

136. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

@ 127 Ransom: Wait, so you’ve been whining all this time about if Anthony and Kayla got sick of hearing us whine and complain about the fact there are no new articles, so they went ahead and posted one to stop the complaining. And yet now, here you are, still whining and complaining and probably just making an ass of yourself. Would someone please care to explain to me the logic in that? It’s either that, or I’ve somehow got it all wrong. If I do, then I apologize.

137. MJ - October 1, 2012

@132. You know, I hadn’t noticed the switch from Captain Ransom’s Back to Captain Ransom. Yea, that does smell like a sock-puppet. No one who would be using the same handle as a regular here for years would all of a sudden make that mistake and modify their name.

138. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

@132. K-7

Oh jeez. I already told Ryan that I am not stunkill. I am not sockpuppeting or whatever you are calling it. I am just annoyed with the constant whining about no news. I took of the “back” because I am back and don’t need that anymore. My nickname on here has always been “Captain Ransom” from years ago.

And wow… I dropped the “back” and that MUST mean I am stunkill. Like I told Ryan, go back and you ca easily see who stunkill is. Look at the syntax and you can figure it out.

139. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

@134. K-7

Where did I write that other sites are USING that tagline? All I said is that every site THINKS they are the word on Trek. Wow. Read the post before you accuse me of something. Good Lord.

@MJ
I never said I never said I used that handle for years. I used Captain Ransom years back. I haven’t posted for about a year. I came back recently, thus the Captain Ransom’s BACK handle.

140. Stunkill - October 1, 2012

He’s not me, but we do coordinate mischief now and then on this website. I taught Ransom everything he knows about how to get under Ryan’s and MJ’s skins. It is all a big game to us.

141. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

Oh good grief. Here we go. You have no idea what I am talking about and you have no idea what this is about so just piss off. Other than “Bored With Trek” – you are the worst instigator here.

142. K-7 - October 1, 2012

#138 “All I said is that every site THINKS they are the word on Trek.”

What in the hell does that mean? The sites are self-aware? Like HAL-9000 or something? Huh???

Come on, you inferred an equivalence to the tagline here with other sites, and their is nothing to bear that out other than this opinion you have that those sites somehow “think” they are better? WTF? Someone please provide me a Universal Translator.

143. Stunkill - October 1, 2012

140. Well played, old friend!

144. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

I wish I had a translator as well, K-7. This circle jerk is getting quite out of hand, wouldn’t you say?

145. K-7 - October 1, 2012

Agreed Mikey. Ransom is complaining a lot more now than the complainers ever did in a single article on this site. What a hypocrite!

146. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

K-7

Are you serious? Do I really have to spell it out for you so that you will understand? Every site (not the actual computer site, the site creator/administrator) thinks they are the best site and that they are the final word in everything Trek. Trekmovie actually USES it as a tagline.
Let me explain in another way.
Every car company thinks their car will be built to last – Ford used it as their tagline/slogan for years. Do you get it now or do I need to explain further?

147. Red Shirt Diaries - October 1, 2012

“Ransom: Wait, so you’ve been whining all this time about if Anthony and Kayla got sick of hearing us whine and complain about the fact there are no new articles, so they went ahead and posted one to stop the complaining. And yet now, here you are, still whining and complaining and probably just making an ass of yourself. Would someone please care to explain to me the logic in that?”

Mikey, you have exposed the faulty circular asinine logic in Captain Ransom’s attacks. His arguments are DOA intellectually, and he is providing much fodder for the rest of us to get a good chuckle with. It is certainly hard to take him seriously at this points. At this point, I kind of feel sorry for him.

148. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

Agreed!

149. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

@144. K-7

Actually, K-7, I am spending my time answering your questions and replying to other people. Do you have anything to add?

150. K-7 - October 1, 2012

“Trekmovie actually USES it as a tagline.”

Exactly. And that is a HUGE difference….you can’t draw an equivalency, and you certainly were trying to infer one.

151. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

Mikey & Diaries… what the heck are you talking about?? Go back and read MY posts. You are quoting someone else.

152. MJ - October 1, 2012

Captain, an observation. It is one thing to think you have a good website, but completely quite another giant step to proclaim publicly that your website is THE best in its class. You can’t compare those.

153. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

Ransom. Of COURSE I was quoting someone else, if only to point out how completely and terribly USELESS your comments are becoming. They’re now simply something for everyone to laugh at.

154. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

K7 … I am trying to say that a tagline is just a tagline. A slogan. A catchy marketing tool. It’s not a philosophy. Do you actually believe every slogan out there?

And mikey & Diaries:

Let me spell it out for you because you seem to be misunderstanding me.
I feel that the contributors are less apt to post an article because of the whining on here. People complain that there is no news. When an article is posted, people complain (like I posted in post #62) about the article. Kayla felt pushed into putting up an article a few weeks back. What I am trying to say is that why would the contributors want to post anything on here anymore when they get complaints when they do. Before Anthony went MIA people were complaining about the drivel that was posted because it wasn’t “real news”. Maybe Anthony actually listened to you and isn’t posting that stuff anymore and will post only when there is real news (other than the regular article such as Science Saturday & TrekInk). The last article Anthony posted was about the Title for the movie.

Is that more clear for you?

155. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

@151 MJ

Listen, it’s an amateur website. Honestly, it’s just what Anthony thinks it is. Just like the other guys feel about their own sites. Anthony was smart enough to actually use it. In my personal opinion, they are all just about the same. Sure, Bob Orci comes on here and not the others but in the end – they are all just amateur websites. I actually go to all of them for Trek news. Some are easier to use than others.

But I am getting off topic here. Perhaps you and the other guys can do as I suggest… inundate ALL the administrators with email. Not just you, but many people. Let them know how you feel and perhaps it will get to Anthony and perhaps something will be done.

On a personal note – you and Craiger are the only reasonable ones here actually DISCUSSING this instead of jumping down my throat.

156. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

No, Ransom, I DID get your point. You just didn’t get MINE. I get you, I do. My POINT is that you are now complaining about people complaining because either:

A) A new article was posted, so people complain about the article, which no matter where you go is to be expected, and you could simply choose to ignore it. Instead here you are complaining. OR

B) No new artivles are being posted, and people complain about no news, which again you could simply ignore. Instead, again, here you are complaining. Still. Perhaps now you see my point?

157. MJ - October 1, 2012

Captain, Anthony is a Trek fan doing an independent website. He is not a corporation. So when he says on his website, “THE source for everything new in Trek,” I certainly take that as the mission statement for this site. That is the goal of this site, ad defined by Anthony.

158. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

Mikey – neither is correct.

My gripe is that people have been complaining there are no articles being posted. When articles are posted, they are not happy with the content of it because they actually really complaining not about no articles being posted, but they are complaining about no new movie news being posted.

I feel for the contributors who work hard on their articles only to be greeted by complaints.

You say I should ignore this and just let people complain? Why not just say this to the people whining about no news? Tell THEM to ignore the lack of news as well.

Quite a few people have actually posted comments about how they are in post-production right now, how even Orci said there won’t be a trailer until Christmas time. People are not satisfied by that. People are not satisfied with what they are getting. So do something about it.

159. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

@156. MJ

That was his mistake then. But seriously, you guys should all start emailing the administrators or some of the contributors. I know you said that you had personally emailed Anthony a few weeks back but heard nothing. Start with the other people and see what happens.

160. Jonboc - October 1, 2012

#71″You have got to be kidding me!! You are telling me that everyone is bitching and moaning – not because there is no news – but because the TAGLINE is still there?????”

Sadly, Cap’n, that is exactly what he and a few others think. So much so that its become an obsession with them. It’s a strange mindset to be sure, one that certainly defies reason. MJ just likes to hear himself talk and instigate, while the mutual admiration society of Red Dead, Craiger, Red Shirt and K7 just rant back and forth with him, over and over again, like some mad tennis match, in thread after thread after thread, in some bizzare attempt to validate this whole tag line, “boo-hoo no news” entitlement nonsense. It’s all rather tiresome, so much so that I don’t bother reading half the posts anymore, and in the process, I’m probably missing some posts that are actually thoughtful and about the article.

But I can always find a minute or two to complain about the usual suspects…it’s my job. :)

161. Red Shirt Diaries - October 1, 2012

Agree with MJ — the statement at the top of this website certainly looks to me like a bold mission statement for this site. When you state something that boldly and audaciously in public, then you’d better be prepared for the people who frequent your site to give you some negative feedback if you don’t deliver on your proclamation.

The website for the Sierra Club in California says: “To protect California’s Air, Water and Natural Resources.” That is their mission, and as a member, I expect them to live up to that, or they are going to get an earful from me an other members. When you make bold mission statements like that on a public website, people expect you live up to them; otherwise you lose credibility.

That is what is happening here. Anthony is losing credibility by essentially abandoning this site when his site keeps boldly proclaiming that it is “THE” Source for Everything New in Trek. Now that we see it is no longer fulfilling that mission, we certainly have a right to call him out on it.

162. TrekMadeMePatient (Wonder) - October 1, 2012

Patience

163. Red Shirt Diaries - October 1, 2012

Jonboc: “But I can always find a minute or two to complain about the usual suspects…it’s my job. :)”

Exactly, you state your purpose here and you deliver consistently on your goals. I really do admire that, Jonboc.

I would ask only that Anthony and this website provide the same consistency and staying power on their mission as Jonboc has in his. Jonboc has his mission defined, and he implements it to the best of his ability. That is what I want out of this site again.

164. Captain Ramsom - October 1, 2012

Guys – I am serious. If you all feel that strongly about this tagline thing. Email the administrators… all of them. Voice yoru disdain to them. Bitch to them like you are doing here and hopefully it will work and they will take down the tagline for you.

165. MJ - October 1, 2012

“Exactly, you state your purpose here and you deliver consistently on your goals. I really do admire that, Jonboc.”

Great point! Anthony could learn a thing or two from Jonboc about staying on point on delivering on a publicly stated mission. Jonboc here provides a great example of how to deliver consistently on stated public goals.

Thanks Jonboc for helping us to clarify this! Much appreciated!

166. MJ - October 1, 2012

@163. OK, not you have a third change to your name — Captain “Ramson” now in your latest post???

If you are trying to convince us you are not a sock-puppet, then this third name change is not helping to convince me dude???

167. MJ - October 1, 2012

meant, you are now calling yourself, Captain “Ramsom”

168. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

WE GET that people are complaining, no one here is blind (I hope)! We don’t need other people to tell us people are complaining. So Anthony is choosing to ignore everyone here by not posting anything. Has anyone bothered to think that Anthony either:

1) Is ill and unable to post

2) Has not been able to find any news (which I doubt)

3) Simply is sick and tired of all the bitching and just wanted to take a break for a while?

There are countless other possibilities. Instead, here we are still bitching. MJ says he emailed him a few weeks back with no response. Perhaps his internet is out? You don’t know whats going on with him. And another thing. So he never tells us why he takes his vacations. Thats his decision to make. It’s not for us to know what he does with his life outside this site. If I’m going to be honest, I DO agree he should be doing a better job with this site and living up the the tagline he put on it. The plain and simple truth is that there is NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT since everything we have done thus far has gotten us nowhere!

And here I end my rant.

169. Red Shirt Diaries - October 1, 2012

Three different versions of this Ransom guy’s name is stretching credibility now. I think it is likely that he is another frequent poster posting under a new name. Perhaps he is Stunkill — the misdirection from Stunkill’s posts above would certainly have suited a cover up for Stunkill.

Fool me once, shame on you…fool me twice, shame on me.

170. Craiger - October 1, 2012

Ransom – This is not an ameture website. Anthony knows people in the Trek industry. He set up interviews with JJ, Orci and crew when they were filming the ST 2009. I think he runs this as a professional Trek and sometimes Scifi news site. A lot of other movie sites sometimes run articles from here about the sequel. Now they will probably have to get some other sources for Trek sequel news. This site is as professional or was as the official StarTrek.com web site. We even had people like Rick Sternbach and other people involved with Trek past Trek productions posting in here, that was fun chatting with them and now they don’t even post in here anymore. That is what alot of us are complaining about. You should have seen this site during its heyday and now its a shell of its former glory.

171. K-7 - October 1, 2012

Now that we have seen a third name change for this guy, I think my initial deduction here that this has been Stunkill all along is most likely correct.

172. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

@165. MJ

Good grief… it’s a bloody typo. It’s past midnight and I am tired. Unbelievable!

173. MJ - October 1, 2012

Whoever you are, you gotta admit, three different name versions in one night stretches credibility here.

174. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

It’s not a name change MJ. It was a typo. You know, the M and the N are right next to each other.

175. Craiger - October 1, 2012

K-7 I wonder if Ransom is even a Trekfan? Maybe he just likes to find abandonded web sites see people complaining about it and harass them? LOL.

Ransom we are just Trek fans who like to get their daily fix of Trek news and this site used to be the main place to go for that. We are missing its former glory it used to have. Other sites couldn’t even compare to this one. However now Trekweb is looking pretty good.

176. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

I agree with MJ. Three name changes in one night definitely stretches the limits of your credibility, assuming there’s any left.

177. K-7 - October 1, 2012

Occam’s Razor:

What is the most likely explanation here:

1. that Captain R both changed his name once and then had a typo later in the same evening to provide us three different versions of his name?; or

2. A sock-puppet, Stunkill or another regular poster, keeps getting sloppy with his stolen name of a former regular on Trekmovie.com who hadn’t posted in over a year until 2 days ago?

178. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

I think 2. I mean who’s gonna believe he changed his name once and then MYSTERIOUSLY has a typo in his name in one night, also claming its past 12 where he is? Yeah, umm, no. I’m going with number two here, LOL! Oh and for your information, Ransom, it is also past midnight where I live. Yet, you don’t see me making a typo in my name, or anyone else making a typo in theirs, do you?

179. Red Shirt Diaries - October 1, 2012

Agreed. Option 2 it is.

180. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

Is it just me, or is it seeming as if Ransom has ran back to hide under his rock?

181. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

Mikey – hurrah for you that you don’t make typos! I have been up since 4am for work. I work 12 hour days. So if I make a typo, excuse me for being human. You are so much better than me. Bully for you.

Oh, and yeah… those MYSTERIOUS typos. Such a mystery behind typos.

Who cares what you think anyway.

182. MJ - October 1, 2012

Whoever you are, it was the typo on top of the name change — providing us THREE DIFFERENT VERSIONS of your name in one day — which blew your cover.

183. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

A lot of people, actually. No who, might I also ask, cares what YOU think, Ransom?

184. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

And I agree with MJ.

185. Shilliam Watner (Click for Trek Ships Poster) - October 1, 2012

Maybe Anthony needs to include, right next to the “chat” tab, a “bitch” tab ;-)

I might take some heat for that comment, but it’s meant in good jest. I have to admit I wish this site had more frequent posts. I don’t think that repeatedly expressing that disappointment will necessarily help the situation, though. When I put myself in Anthony’s shoes, reading what is said here, I might start to feel like not coming back.

I’m not telling anybody what they should say or how they should act, but our actions do have consequences, and these talkbacks have become fairly unpleasant to read lately. Nobody, the web master nor the participants, is really talking about Star Trek any longer.

Cheers to you all!

186. Captain_Conrad - October 1, 2012

This has to be a product of Portland Oregon….

187. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

Yes Craiger, i am a Trek fan. I collect the action figures and comics. I still have Gold Key comics from when I was a kid. I am more partial to TOS and the original movies but am a fan of all the the series.

188. Captain Ransom - October 1, 2012

Fine… whatever MJ. You can think what you want. Sometimes a typo is just a typo. You guys are all so big on the conspiracy theories. I am not going to argue the finer points of a typo especially one where the M & N are next to each other on the keyboard.

And Mikey – I actually never saw you until tonight. Are you that much a fly on the wall or just talk big when your buddies are here?

189. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

Like I said, I normally don’t post very often on Trekmovie, and I probably used to post under the name Trekker1091 years ago. I might not be an actually daily regular, but I HAVE been around, if barely.

190. MJ - October 1, 2012

FYI to all — I have seen Mikey post before. He is good people.

191. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

I’m surprised you remember me from other articles, MJ, as I rarely post as it is. I do, however, plan to change that. I’ve been meaning to become more active here, and figured I’d start with this article. So you can all plan to see more of me in the future, LOL!

192. MJ - October 1, 2012

I remember you, because I used the “Hey Mikey, he likes it” joke from that old time Life Cereal commercial reference in response to one of your posts awhile back. Unless that was a different Mikey?

193. MJ - October 1, 2012

194. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

No, that was probably me, LOL! I read the comments pretty thoroughly almost every day and have never seen another Mikey here besides me. I may, of course, have missed one, but I’m pretty sure I’m the only one.

195. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

LMAO, YES! I remember that video!

196. MJ - October 1, 2012

198. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

LOL, I remember that commercial too, AJ!

199. Mikey1091 - October 1, 2012

Well, it has most certainly been fun tonight talking to everyone on here. Including the whining which I did actually participate in. But, sadly, things must come to an end at some point. It’s almost 1:45 AM where I live and I am very much exhausted. No need to worry though, I’ll be back again tomorrow! Goodnight, all!

200. Red Dead Ryan - October 1, 2012

Well, I took a break from the arguing to watch “Star Trek” 09 on Blu Ray again. Still holds up great. Still a lot of fun, and the opening Kelvin scenes still rank as the best part of the movie. The writers really nailed it perfectly with the sacrifice of George Kirk and the birth of his son, James.

I still don’t like the numb tongue/expanding hand scenes, and Engineer Olsen was too much of a dumbass to care about. Redshirts, at least in TOS, often were the victims of circumstance and bad luck, not idiocy.

“Sometimes it feels like we’re a nation of whiners. Many of us learned this behavior as children, when we got what we wanted by wearing our parents down. In adulthood, whining—or venting, as I like to call it when I’m doing it—can be a coping mechanism, allowing us to let off steam.

“A lot of whiners don’t know they whine,” says Julie Hanks, a licensed clinical social worker who has a therapy clinic in Salt Lake City. “I want them to ask themselves, ‘Would I want to hang out with this person?’ “”

203. bardicjim - October 2, 2012

I think they should change the tagline to “Where everyone acts like Sheldon”.

204. John - October 2, 2012

I’ll just leave this here!

205. David C. Roberson - October 2, 2012

I’m not really complaining, but what -is- happening with this site? Every couple of months, it’s nearly abandoned (or so it seems), and the readers start acting like bloody savages. OK, that last part always happens. Haha, but I do miss the old days… Of course, I miss the old days of AOL Star Trek message boards…

206. Bored, Bored, Bored with Star Trek. - October 2, 2012

1. I believe the point has been made about the lack of posting on this site, and the frustration about the lack of information about the movie.

2. ‘Captain Ransom’ ( whatever his name is) has demonstrated what kind of person he is through his posts and his degrading comments about people he doesn’t even know.

3. I am joined by others about how I view this website, it’s tagline, and the lack of information on here about Star Trek. I certainly am joined in my opinion of Captain whatshisname…. (NOT HIS REAL NAME)

**yawn**

207. Captain Ransom - October 2, 2012

@206. Bored, Bored, Bored with Star Trek.

You are the worst offended. You whine the loudest. And if you are that bored with Star Trek – why are you still here?

For your information, my real name IS actually Ransom… Steve Ransom.

208. Captain Ransom - October 2, 2012

* worst offender.

209. Jonboc - October 2, 2012

cap’n, good ol’ Bored Bored Bored just likes to try and push buttons. While MJ and the others at least, on occasion, do engage in an informed debate, “bored” and his ilk are best ignored altogether.

210. Captain Ransom - October 2, 2012

@209. Jonboc

Agree 100% with you.

211. K-7 - October 2, 2012

All, “Captain Ransom” is an impostor — he changed his name three times yesterday — see his posts from yesterday, and note how several of us deduced this. My advice would be to not respond to anything further that Captain Ransom says — we should not be rewarding sock-puppeting here on these boards.

I would urge you all to not respond further to any of Captain Ransom’s posts.

212. K-7 - October 2, 2012

#163 “I would ask only that Anthony and this website provide the same consistency and staying power on their mission as Jonboc has in his. Jonboc has his mission defined, and he implements it to the best of his ability. That is what I want out of this site again.”

LOL

213. Captain Ransom - October 2, 2012

@211. K-7

I am NOT an imposter. I had a typo when typing last night after being up for close to 20 hours. The M & N are right next to each other. watch your fingers when you type my name and you will see.

I am and always will be Captain Ransom – go back a few years on this site and you will see that. I explained this all last night. If you actually read my posts you would see that.

I don’t know you and I really don’t care what you think. You are not worth the time anymore.

214. Craiger - October 2, 2012

I wonder if Anthony now thinks of this website as just a hobby and will update it whenver he feels board?

215. Bored, Bored, Bored with Star Trek. (and Captain whathisname) - October 2, 2012

@213

Hey Captain whatsyourname…

Aren’t you going to call K-7 a nasty name, too?… come on… be consistent, willya? You called me a d____bag after reading just one of my posts… K-7 has alot more than that…

Come on… whip out your name calling book, Captain whatsyourname.

216. DiscoSpock - October 2, 2012

K-7, thanks for the warning. I reviewed the posts from yesterday as you suggested, and I am included to agree with you and the others on this.

I’ll ignore Ransom’s posts from here on out. Thanks!

217. Captain Ransom - October 2, 2012

@216. DiscoSpock

You obviously didn’t review them all. K7 & Bored With… are trolls that just like to push people into arguments. Review my posts from the top and you will see. I explained myself properly and if you don’t want to believe that, fine. I have never had any contact with you anyway.

218. casual observer - October 2, 2012

@215

I see that you are changing your name as well – does that mean that you are a troll? Does that mean you are stunkill? Interesting.

219. dscott - October 2, 2012

Meh… that musical genre just ain’t me – nicely done, but can I get me a similar performance to the tune of, I dunno, Megadeth – Reckoning Day???

220. Red Shirt Diaries - October 2, 2012

Thanks for the warning on Ransom — I will certainly boycott responding to his posts. Here’s betting as well that this “casual observer” in post 218 is Ransom under yet another name as a sock-puppet — that post is just too convenient to support Ransom in his bitch-fest with Bored.

221. MJ - October 2, 2012

#220. Yea, my first thought as well when seeing this “casual observer” post was that the Ransom sock-puppet is now expanding his cast of characters. LOL

222. Stephen - October 2, 2012

Just about one of the most stupid things i have ever seen.

223. Captain Ransom - October 2, 2012

@221. MJ

And here I thought you were the reasonable one last night. What a bunch of crap. I am me and only me – I don’t need to post as anyone else.

@220 – so since MJ posted under you supporting you, does that mean you two are the same person? Yeah, great logic.

224. Richard - October 2, 2012

To everyone involved in the flame war:

Having the last word doesn’t mean you win. And having the last word isn’t at all important to a mature intellect.

The words ‘debate’ and ‘argument’ do not share the same meaning.

I thought it was a bit of harmless fun.

Oh well. Can’t please them all :-(

231. Drew Kam - October 3, 2012

Whoops didn’t finish typing… ” to the news editor and Anthony.”

232. Richard - October 3, 2012

Nah Drew, you done good. I enjoyed the video.

You know Trekkies, they’ll find something to complain and argue about no matter what the topic is.
