    The Cardasians in DS9 gave a better/deeper sustained story line than the Borg ever did in TNG...though it did become a little soap opera-ish in the later DS9 eps....if you didn't watch every week, you didn't know what what going on.

    Either way, I'll be there to see it.



    And what about Lucas's re-release of SW:Ep1....?
    It was the crappiest of the SW series, but who doesn't wanna see the pod race in 3d?

    The funny thing with Lucas is his determination to not release a "non modified, cleaned up" version of the original theater releases of the first 3 movies.

    And the 3D movie thing is annoying, it's yet another step in the "effects over story" development
    If there's artificial intelligence, there's bound to be some artificial stupidity.

    Any story with the Borg (as a collective) is similar to a disaster or horror movie in that though the physicality can be interesting, it is more about those fighting, resisting, escaping with a small amount of a mostly if not completely unreasonable personality/interaction which serves to enhance fear and tension.

    They're best used sparingly.

    Saying this. I actually purchase the Star Trek Borg Fan Collective.

    Gul Dukat's decent into Madness/possession by the Pah Wariaths seemed forced to me.

    His other interactions along with Garak and the other Cardassians were always interesting and entertaining.

    It's all but been confirmed that Khan will NOT be the villian in ST2. Otherwise the storyline has been very tight lipped so far.

    Star Trek: Into Darkness ?

    http://m.superherohype.com/news/arti...-into-darkness

    Is J.J. Abrams Taking a Star Trek Into Darkness?

    Tomorrow, September 8th, marks the 46th anniversary of Gene Roddenberry's "Star Trek", but SuperHero Hype is celebrating a little early with a juicy rumor to share. We've been been told that the 2013 J.J. Abrams sequel has chosen a title and will hit theaters as Star Trek Into Darkness.

    Although we have not yet been able to officially confirm said title, the domain names www.startrekintodarkness.com and www.startrekintodarknessmovie were both registered yesterday through Markmonitor, an anonymous domain registry service that just so happens to have been utilized by Paramount Pictures for recent URLs like their official G.I. Joe: Retaliation site.

    We'll bring you confirmation as soon as it's available, but what is certain is that the film will star Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller with a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Damon Lindelof and that it will hit theaters on May 17, 2013 in 2D, 3D theaters and IMAX 3D versions.

    At IMAX theaters the first 10 min of STID will screen before The Hobbit.

    Must make a point of seeing The Hobbit in my local IMAX. Just hope they're running the 48 FPS version with Dolby's new Atmos sound system. I know that the Embassy in Wellington where the premier is being held has upgraded so hopefully the IMAX in Auckland as well but I'm not hold my breath on this one..

    Sounds like a wild ride....

    The internal threat who in a "one man WMD" sounds like Lt. Cmdr. Gary Mitchell from TOS.

    Official synopsis: In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes ‘Star Trek Into Darkness.’ When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.

    With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

    LOL, DS9 WAS a soap opera that could have replaced General Hospital with ease
