Re: TNG S6: The Chase

This is a brilliant concept which is let down somewhat by the limitations of a one-hour TV episode. I absolutely agree with HolographicAndrew that this should have been a movie. It's just a really great science fiction concept, and it could have been one of the best science fiction movies of all time if executed properly. Alas, we got Generations, Insurrection, and Nemesis instead!

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness

Sorry, I didn't know everybody was so touchy. If I said Abrams 'murdered' Star Trek, which he did, I'm sure nobody would have a problem. But I've forgotten that most people nowadays see the world through the prism of tabloid hysteria.

Just to address the point that Abrams has to compromise Star Trek to make money - the idea he's actually made an unprecedented amount of money is a myth, if you take inflation and film-going habits into account. A good way to judge its relative success is to look at the top ten box office movies for each year in the US and worldwide. Wrath of Khan was the sixth highest earner domestically in 1982, STID was the 11th highest earner in 2013. So it's a myth.

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness

What a god-awful disgusting piece of trash this movie was. I felt like a rape victim after walking out of it. Or more precisely, I felt like I was watching the corpse of a loved one being raped on screen - namely my beloved Wrath of Khan. Why did they have to keep referencing it in increasingly cringeworthy ways? Can't they see how a comparison of Kirk's death scene with Spock's death scene in the minds of the audience will just undermine the movie fatally, especially when no relationship has been established between Spock and Kirk to justify the reactions of the characters? When Zachary Quinto screamed out "Khaaaan", I first laughed, and then I wanted to cry. There should be an article against this sort of thing in the Geneva convention. On its own terms it was a bland, formulaic exercise in painting by numbers Hollywood mediocrity - but as a Star Trek fan it felt in addition like the whole thing was laced with poison, that just made me want to retch at almost every scene. This was the worst experience I've ever had in a cinema.

Re: TNG S7: Genesis

Oh, I think everyone is crazy. This is a really good episode. Maybe I'm just overcome by nostalgia, but I find it funny and interesting and one of the better episodes of season 7.

I think the de-evolving/devolving criticism is silly. Devolve is nowadays primarily used to mean something else - so if they used devolve they'd have to put in a sentence explaining what they were talking about.
