Ha, “Federation Square” in Melbourne. I admit to thinking of Star Trek when I visited Melbourne a few years ago. Had a kangaroo steak at an excellent restaurant on the Square.

Er, I think you’ve misread the time. The official announcement says “12:00 pm PT/3:00 pm ET,” meaning that it starts at noon Pacific time and 3 p.m. Eastern time. It’s only supposed to last for two hours, though, so it’s not supposed to go until 3:00 p.m. Pacific time.

Sounds like fun!

I guess this will be a yearly thing now which will be great to celebrate Star Trek in all its glory. I really loved last years event and expect to get a few trailers and other surprises.

My only pet peeve is how do you have the Picard panel and yet not have a single TNG cast member as part of the event, including Patrick Stewart himself? At comic con it was at least him and Gates McFadden but I thought the entire gang would be here for this and would easily be the biggest panel of the event. Oh well!

But happy Kate Mulgrew will be there (IIRC wasn’t there at last year’s event) and good to know there will be a Nichelle Nichols tribute!

Maybe in a mirror universe somewhere….

This is the mirror universe

Interesting, I never figured the Empire would be so….bland.

That would explain a lot.

Wish there were some news they could share about the movie. Everything is moving except this and maybe Section 31 show.

You would think a movie that is suppose to be filming ‘end of this year’ would, you know, make Star Trek day a big announcement event about it with things like maybe a title, 1 or 2 of the cast members there to hype it and remind people who they are again, when and where it will start shooting (which would have to be VERY soon i they want to keep thee 2023 deadline), maybe big casting news of who is playing the obligatory ubervillain etc, etc, etc.

Instead, more dead silence per usual. We have not heard anything. NOTHING! No casting rumors, update about the script, confirmation if the entire old cast signed up, possibility of location shoots, director or writer throwing out story hints, budget figures, etc. But there is NONE of that for a movie that is suppose to be out 16 months from now. It’s like they forgotten about it because there seems to be zero movement.

Paramount just seems at a loss where the film franchise is going and maybe there is still hope they will get this thing going soon. But if this one is forever stalled too as the others, I don’t think it will shock anyone at this point.

There isn’t going to be a movie. Atleast not in 2023 or 2024.

That’s what I was alluding to obviously, at least not in 2023. There is still a possibility for 2024 but even then the clock is ticking if you want to position your movie for a certain week as those are getting filled in by other studios now. So if 2023 is really a wash, seem like they should just face reality and make a new date sooner than later.

But maybe t’s smart to just push it off to 2025 if they want to start anew and a different direction if whatever is stalling them on this movie can’t get worked out. At this point, it really doesn’t matter lol.

2023 is seven years between features, nine for a 2025 release. It does open the possibility that by staying in the Kelvin universe, there’s opportunity to explore the Trek universe in a way different from the TOS movies. Stay tuned….

I’m not saying that will happen obviously but maybe it should? But something that STICKS this time and not just keep moving or quietly cancel it like all the other projects.

Again at this point, really, what does it matter? Once we reached the 5 year mark and you still care about these movies, then you will probably care in another 3-5 years as well. And why wait 7 years just to rush something to production now?? Because if they tried to release something for 2023 now, it’s going to feel rushed.

You know my thoughts, I think they are taking a huge chance on any movie right now and they probably feel the exact same way. But maybe if they wait it out for a few more years, the TV shows will feel a bit more mundane by then, maybe people will be generally excited for another movie in the fanbase; because at the moment it still doesn’t feel that way at all to me. Sure many will see it, but there isn’t any excitement or anticipation about them anymore and that must worry Paramount.

And yeah you can maybe do something drastically different in the Kelvin universe by then too. Something that separates it from the Prime universe that will get people to get excited for it again. Right now, the Kelvin universe just feels so far in the background now that the Prime universe is back with all the legacy characters fans have missed.

But whose fault is that? ;)

i think that the movie has been shelved and paramount just does not want to lose fans over constantly being jerked around with false hope. Frankly I am not the fan that i once was. i don’t like the TV Star Trek that is on today. I personally did like the Kelvin films and would like to see another but my interest is definitely waning with all of their rhetoric and then silence. Fans deserve better.

Definitely a possibility. I still want to be more optimistic and that they are trying to figure something out, but 2+2 is just not adding up here. On one hand the argument (or spin) is that nothing is happening because they are trying to clear the actors schedules before they announce a starting date. OK, fine. But then the actors themselves, at least Pine, Quinto and Urban have said they have heard nothing, ie, no one has called them to even work out any scheduling or anything. Kind of weird when you made it adamant you wanted a new movie by next year.

But I agree with you, fans do deserve better. And really sorry you’re not enjoying any of the new shows. For me, Star Trek really belongs on TV versus the cinema, but there was a time we had both of them running together, at least from 1989 through 2002. I would love to see that time again.

But man how does this discussion keep being brought up lol. This thread has nothing to do with the Kelvin movies, but then I guess that’s the sad point. It’s about Star Trek day, the new films SHOULD be a part of that like all the shows are but once again completely ignored. It’s funny a decade ago some fans actually thought the Kelvin universe would be driving force of the franchise from here on out and the Prime universe would be part of a bygone era. Today its all about the Prime universe again and the Kelvin is lucky it can just get a shout out by someone at an anniversary event. ;)

No movie yet, so no news. It is what it is.

Unfortunately, we don’t get news on this movie any more than we get news on the Section 31 show :(

Those annual events for Star Trek Day and First Contact Day are a true gift.

I wish they will someday release streaming movies twice a year, on those two days… Trekbusters on P+

Yes and let’s start the first film with the NX-01 Enterprise crew during the Romulan war! That would certainly get my attention!

Five second delay on those panels, I’m guessing….

“Paramount is doing a streaming event honoring the anniversary of the launch of the original Star Trek television series on September 8, 1966.”

That should be noted as “in the US”.

Star Trek actually had its television premiere on Sep 6. For at least the first season, it aired 2 days earlier on CTV in Canada.

True that!

Hoping to get at least some updates on Section 31 🤞
