Well, hi, Bloggers.
…But that’s not important right now.
What’s important is, I have a present to give away. And it’s a holiday season. And after thinking it over for a few minutes, I realized I was being grossly unfair to my good friend Matthew in making a great fuss over memes I might do, questions I might ask…
And so I decided on this question (even though it is not the question), and I think it’s a good one.
How would you change that new Star Trek Movie?
I mean everyone says they liked it.
As I believe I said: I have mixed feelings about it.
So, how would you change it?
What would you do?
Seriously: if it were you?
Maybe I should offer one or two guidelines: Zachary Quinto is always going to be Young Spock, and Chris Pine is always going to be Young Kirk, and there is always going to be the scene in the turbolift (we can’t get rid of that!)…and the actors who replace the familiar Enterprise bridge crew must be there (although PLEASE can we get past the whole “Russians don’t belong” thing PLEASE…what VULCANS belong but Russians DON’T? Christ I’m not even 100% sure Ens. Chekhov IS Russian…honestly I feel in 2009 this is racist…)
…And for myself I don’t need any “alternate timelines”, I’d be happy with a HARD REBOOT, you know? And honestly I’ve had enough of Romulans unless you can make them fit and be cool.
Honestly…like the T-shirt says…it’s the only logical thing to do.
Peace and long life, Bloggers.
…But everything else is up for grabs. Simply don’t care about the established history of the Federation…well isn’t that kind of the point anyway? Just give me Kirk and Spock and McCoy…and Sulu and Chekhov and Yeoman Rand and Lt. Riley and Nurse Chapel.
