I can resist

I have it on DVD, eventually on Blu-Ray, twice on my hard drive in both AVI and MP4 (for my iPhone) formats, and on a VHS somewhere around here if I could find it.

However, this will prove invaluable should I one day choose to watch it at work. And I just might tomorrow since the summer is boring around here. That is assuming that I don’t just bring in the DVD, my iPhone, or my computer…

10/10 for concept, I’m rather happy

2/10 usefulness for myself

:-( you have all the fun in America would love to see it on 3D though now that would be outa this world :-)

Wish they were available in Canada…

Keep going back to ST:VI as my favorite. Some of the best ST dialogue ever:

Scott: “…then we’re dead.”


Spock: “I’ve been dead before.”

The finest work of the TNG movies and rivals KHAN as my favorite ST movie.

This is kinda cool since I have been recently been spending some time in the hospital. They have free wifi for patients and hulu is a great time killer!

I hope that JJTREK follows the run of TOS & TNG movies

the first one was good, but the second in the set was


but hopefully JJTREK 3, 4 etc [finger crossed] ,
fair better than the previous incarnates.

[note added to say that STIV was popular, but cheesey IMHO]

@ 6. CaptainLordBat

get well soon m8 :)

………ooooo000000OOOOOOO *CRASH*

Gawd dangit! For five seconds, five whole entire seconds, I saw this post as a “Star Trek First Contact Expanded Soundtrack Available”. I’m addicted now!

Meh. First Contact is way over rated in my opinion. Didn’t care for it.

@10 No less over rated than Khan. I love them both.

Khan is great. First Contact is ok; has good moments.

Had some good moments but fell flat as a borg story. Was hoping for a spectacular starship battle but got like 30 seconds of combat. Very disappointing.
The pacing was odd too, that whole scene on the deflector dish sent me to sleep..can we pick up the pace here?!!

9: You can already get that

A great addition to the internet.

Well. Sounds reaqly kool. But I have all the Movies and Tos Series on Blu Ray. But still realy nice to see.


Spock “Contact Excelsior, she’ll have the coordinates”

Sweet ! I love this movie.

One thing that’s really cool about this is that you can be away from home with nothing but your laptop, and as long as you can find Wi Fi access you can decide to watch one of these movies on a whim if you have nothing better to do.

hulu really is run by aliens trying to suck our brains—this is proof they want us nerds too !Stay outta my parents basement ya aliens!

Best TNG film! I know what I’m doing during my lunch break!

Isn’t reading this blog consistent with having FC at least on DVD? I can understand the need to see Nemesis on Hulu, but FC?

@Boris nemesis was a complete waist only the comic of nero brings the story into context FC works as a great introduction to a potentially

@Boris- no no no FC was brilliant it explored personal responsibility over personal gain, self sacrifice over want, restraint in the face of Irresponsible potential and above all recognition that captain Picard always wanted to be captain A-hab, nemesis showed personal pain by the exertion of our souls to be torn and twisted by naves and re presented to us it was a hole exercise of “I have the potential to do that in a different time or place but I haven’t even thought about it” a pointless exercise of hypothesise into the soul of 1 character and their inpact on others, the only potential of tying it in is to make the comic of nero where B4 becomes data and picard an ambassador, intern tying in the finale of bext gen, a prequel film to the recent cinematic experience.

To all please forgive No. 23 and any miss spelling it’s very had to type passionately on a mobile phone withe out making mistakes

#7: “but hopefully JJTREK 3, 4 etc [finger crossed] , fair better than the previous incarnates.”

I do wonder if the current team are likely to hang out past the trilogy distance (and wonder even more how many cast-changes are likely if they do).

“[note added to say that STIV was popular, but cheesey IMHO]”

Aye, but heartwarming … and in many ways the closest thing we’ve ever seen to real Star Trek on the big screen.

23 – Which is why most readers don’t need to see FC on Hulu, having already watched it to death on DVD because it’s a good movie. Nemesis, on the other hand…it’s the only Star Trek movie I deliberately saw precisely once, in a theater.

Lol, point taken looking at it from your prospective

Lovely just what I was searching for.Thanks to the author for taking his clock time on this one.

I’m just writing to make you know what a helpful discovery our daughter undergone reading the blog. She came to find a good number of details, most notably how it is like to possess an amazing coaching spirit to get other individuals with no trouble gain knowledge of specific complex things. You actually surpassed readers’ desires. I appreciate you for presenting these productive, trustworthy, informative and also fun thoughts on that topic to Janet.

I was just looking for this info for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your web site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this type of informative web sites in top of the list. Usually the top sites are full of garbage
