Enterprising Babble!

Look! The Enterprise!

Damnit, I'm really trying hard not to get excited about this. I was mildly disappointed in Voyager and dreadfully crushed by Enterprise. I've been clinging to the idea that with such a good cast, at least they'll be able to embrace the so-bad-its-good cheese factor of the show.

Now I'm starting to convince myself it may actually be GOOD!

I KNOW I'm setting myself up for disappointment but...

(Also, looking at those actors photographs, I rescind my doubts about Karl Urban as a casting choice. Suddenly I can really see it.)

I'm starting to get EXCITED!

    Having grown up with the original series, I was crushed by The Next Generation and barely paid any attention to series after that. So I have basically zero expectations for the new film. Although it's amusing that the 15-year-old rumor of a Starfleet Academy film seems to finally be coming to pass.

    I didn't like Voyager either and Enterprise just screwed up everything set down by ToS and TNG canon :(

    The Enterprise DOES look good tho :) Do you know if the ppl involved know their Star Trek tho or grew up as fans? :D Cuz the Nemesis person never watched any Star Trek before and look what happened :\

    I'm mainly a TNG/DS9 fan; TOS is enjoyable camp, Voyager had some great stuff, but didn't work as a series; Enterprise had promise, but, like Voyager, didn't really commit to its premise. Picard and Sisko are where it's at.

    The movie has a great creative team, but I'm still not sure about going back and recasting/redoing TOS; it doesn't really seem to be taking the franchise anywhere new, although it's dealing with one of the two most popular iterations of the franchise (TOS/TNG), so that's more marketable.

    I like the use of all the 60s quotes in the trailer.

    Switch around the reactions to Voyager and Enterprise, and I'm right with you. After not really getting into the first season or so, I caught up with DS9 in later seasons & reruns and now consider it the second best, behind only TOS. TNG, I can barely watch now, there's just too much sappiness.

    "Enterprise" was a clever idea done horribly, horribly wrong. The notion of a 22nd Century, pre-Federation series was great. I even liked the Vulcans as condescending, paternalistic jerks and the civil war between them and the (for want of a better term) "mystical logician" Vulcans. I'll even spot points for a clever solution to the Klingon forehead problem. Almost everything else about the series was crap, beginning with B&B trashing canon for no good reason other than they apparently thought it was funny or something.
