Spoilers within, but if you've come this far in the thread, you've probably already seen the movie. I enjoyed reading all the comments here, both the ones for and against the movie, and I can understand where most everyone is coming from in their post. I'm not hating on anyone's position on the movi...

Why blame Vulcan? At least they were trying to save the Romulans, how were they to know the star would blow up prematurely. smallaxe: Nero was just angry and vengeful, there was no logic beyond "I blame you and the federation; thus all federation planets will be destroyed while you watch." ---------...

Spoiler in reply to Bradbru Hope you're seen the movie... I disagree that it violates canon. It reboots it, by making this movie's universe a parallel to the one that's been established (how else is Leonard Nimoy's Spock still in existence and still has memories of all that's happened?) I'm not goin...

You'll see when you watch it. I would not say that it violates canon, but I believe Paramount intended it as a reboot of sorts.

Thoughts on the new "Star Trek" movie

A little background: I have never really seen any of the original episodes. My intro to Star Trek was with TNG and I've always been a fan of Picard and crew, followed by DS9 which I think was the best Star Trek series ever. Voyager was something I'd watch when I was able, but I didn't have strong fe...

"The Visitor" is probably the best episode of any Star Trek series ever.

DS9 is the best Star Trek series ever made, in my humble opinion. I agree that Season 4 is where it really took off, but that doesn't mean you should toss Seasons 1-3. It's good to get an idea of how the characters are/were fleshed out before the whole Dominion arc started. FYI, you can get episode ...

I played the Romulan Tutorials, and went on with it after the tutorials ended. I don't recall how it ended up, but I remember that I didn't know how to create a starbase from an outpost... Reading and playing more gave me good skills and I win pretty much every game I start these days. My favourite ...

Happens to me all the time, the way I play...I usually play vanilla and level 5 as the Feds. At that level, I usually can begin with a slow expansion and try to hit a good economic level...once your economy goes past a certain point and/or you colonize a certain percentage of systems and you don't h...
