One of My Favorite TrekMovie Comment Posts

January 10, 2009

From a user who used the handle of “sb” on TrekMovie, who said this in a discussion of the upcoming JJ Abrams Star Trek film:

A little bit of reminiscence from the Bygone Era of Fandom Past…
I can remember one — and *only* one — Star Trek film whose coming was not heralded by fannish screaming, whining, bitching, complaining, agita, baked beans and Spam. It was, if you take the strictest possible interpretation, the ONLY Star Trek project ever made since the Original Series that has never, as far as I know, been accused of the slightest bit of “non-canonicity” (which probably isn’t even a real word, but work with me here) and is, in fact, the only one of the series where every plot point, costume and set alteration, or character arc was scrupulously respectful of every previously established tenet of the Original Series.
That movie is also widely thought to be terrible, which indeed it was, and is. It was called STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE.
Put that in your canon cannon and fire it. :)

Good point SB and having been alive and a fan at the time, true. But I’ll add a caveat, there was no Internet, BBS’, blogs, pod or vid casts at the time. Somehow, just being in or on one of these causes flaming to spontaneously erupt!

    If the triad blog gets off the ground, you may see some more Star Trek stuff.
