    I've long had a love/hate relationship with Star Trek (bright vision of an optimistic future, or militaristic Fabian twaddle?), and I have a feeling this movie won't change that. But yeah, I'll go see it. I can't not go see it.

    (Although I did manage to miss Insurrection.)

    Star Trek has become a poorly aged whore playing to the last few customers she has left. Deep discounts in story in order to soak the last few pennies out of her rapidly decaying body before she dries up and returns to obscurity.

    Orwell: *applause*

    I've told my family this several times during the course of my comic book fanboyishness--"Yep, I'm a comic book geek. But, it could have been worse: I might have been a Trekkie."

    Well done, Orwell. I entirely agree. I read somewhere on one of JMS's websites, he was asked if he would work on Star Trek. He sent in a spec with what he wanted to do, in fact, remake the original series. No canon BS, free to do what he wanted with a season long mystery. Of course they said no. Here it is if you're interested.

    Remember that Babylon 5 was also pitched as a Star Trek series, and JMS was shot down outright. Surprisingly, Deep Space 9 premiered not too long after that. What an amazing coincidence.
