does anyone actually think there will be star trek on television or in film again? star trek was killed with the cancellation of enterprise, and jj abrams sealed the deal by making what was ultimately a parody. "of gods and men" was the last true star trek production, likely ever. people can't get past the idea of star trek being old. star trek isn't old, i think it's more relevant than it's ever been. we've had the remaster project, which seemed to be determined to fill it full of formaldehyde and put it behind glass like some kind of relic, and the jj abrams version which was determined to bulldoze it in favour of something superficially similar, but much shinier, made of plastic, and completely hollow. and before anyone jumps to conclusions, i am exactly the target age that abrams was marketting the movie to, but i like a little substance in my entertainment, i like to walk out of a movie with something to think about, and a better person for the experience. and i think science is important, not just the findings, but more importantly the method. that movie diddn't even mention the word "explore" until the end bleeding credits. they made starfleet into the army, telling "kirk" to 'be all you can be'. it's message was "space, the final battlefield. these are the conquests of the warship enterprise, it's ongoing mission to invade strange new worlds, to seek out new life, new civilisations, and kick their butts. to boldly kill what no man has killed before". star trek is supposed to inspire people, not just keep their eyes busy for a couple hours, long enough to take their money. i think we need what star trek has to offer, nobody else is willing to teach the philosophy of science to the masses, least of all the schools. science is important, skepticism is importsnt, the willingness snd the courage to question oneself and improve oneself is important, now more than ever.
thank you for your time, i just needed to get that off my chest. peace and long life.
