James Cawley has been an opponent of Star Trek XI for a very long time now, so when he recently began to speak out in favor, it raised a lot of eyebrows in the Trek community. In a recent interview with Trekmovie.com, Cawley reported on his feelings now that he has had a chance to see Abrams in action - and it completely changed his mind.
Cawley has come to Trekkie fame as the Exectuive Producer of Star Trek: The New Voyages. A self-proclaimed purist, Cawley's objections have revolved around the fact that it won't be the same. The sets and costumes and actors won't be the same. This is an oft-repeated theme among doomsayers like Cawley, who feel that the spirit of Star Trek will not be respected.
Cawley was walking through the Paramount lot with a friend when a chance encounter with J.J. Abrams led to him being invited into the ultra high security set of Star Trek. Sitting next to J.J. at the monitor, he found himself asked his opinion of the sets, the costumes, and the filming, as well as being given a small role on the movie.
The main concerns Cawley had had to do with his being a "purist", or "someone who's...extremely devoted to the original show". As such, he was concerned about the idea of the designs of the Enterprise changing at all, as evidenced by the amazing accuracy of New Voyages, right down to the braid on Kirk's sleeve. So redesigning the Enterprise, even a little, was just too much for him to contemplate.
All that changed when Cawley was walking across the Paramount lot with a friend and decided to stroll by Studios 8 and 9 where the movie is being filmed. J.J. Abrams was driving somewhere in a golf cart when he recognized Cawley (Cool Thing #1: JJ knows James Cawley on sight!) and invited him to return to the stage to watch the filming later in the day. (Cool Thing #2: JJ scores big PR points yesss!)
Returning to the set, Cawley found himself seated next to JJ himself at the monitor, watching as the movie was being filmed and asked for his opinion about the shooting. (Cool Thing #3: Ask the expert!)
Cawley describes JJ as down-to-Earth, normal, and "genuinely nice", a quality that seems to have eluded several previous Star Trek directors (If I named them, that would be slander). "To experience his generosity and his humor," said Cawley, "was the best of all." Cawley left the set with an invitation to return any time and a role as a Starfleet officer in the movie - details as yet unknown.
One of the first things Cawley noticed was how much attention had been paid to the sets and costumes. While the sets were not exactly what he would have done, he said, they were nonetheless impressive and the costumes were "perfect". Also, Cawley believes JJ "gets" Star Trek, :"Dude, let me tell you, I had a long conversation with JJ - we were on the set again today for another four and a half hours and one of the conversations I had with JJ was his feelings about Star Trek. And that's what absolutely sold me on J.J. Abrams and Star Trek was that he said how much he believes in the philosophy of Gene Roddenberry, the humanity, and the message that the original series delivered. That's his focus."
This statement changed Cawley's perception of that ever-elusive continuity. "It doesn't matter if the set is perfect if the heart is there. And he's got it."

Trekmovie.com is hosting a video from G4 that states that Nemesis bombed because we're done with the Next Generation crew.
Is that really what people think?
Nemeis bombed because it was an obvious crappy remake. If you need proof, look no further! Tell me what movie this is: the Captain of the Enterprise is mysteriously summoned to a specific region of space where he encounters a villain to whom he has close personal ties, and who has a specific need to see that Captain dead. The Captain ends up having a huge space battle with the villain in the middle of a giant dust cloud, until the villain, recognizing defeat, launches his superweapon. Only the sacrifice of the Captain's closest friend – and First Officer – can save the ship. But there is a slight hope that maybe he didn't die at all...
Now tell me which movie that was.
That's not all that's wrong with Nemesis, though. If it had just been the fact that the entire plot was poached from what may be the most-loved Trek movie ever, that might be forgiveable. But with the dune buggy, B4, Shinzon, and the Viceroy running around, it was hard to make audiences take it seriously. The dune buggy can be pinned squarely on the director, since the writer has no say whatsoever. B4 is a great piece of continuity (look up TNG: Inheritance, if you're having trouble there) that could have been fleshed out in more detail. Shinzon was a great idea that didn't need that much screen time. And the Viceroy was just totally unnecessary to the plot.
The parts that really ticked me off, and ruined the whole thing for me, were the omissions. What they put in the movie was excusable. What they left out was criminal. I waited fifteen years to see Will and Deanna tie the knot, and they didn't show the wedding. Wil Wheaton was in the movie, and even though his scene was 30 seconds long (which could not possibly annoy the Wesley bashers that much) and would have won over the Wesley-loving crowd, they cut him out. As a side note, Wil is still an actor, people.
The worst part is that those things were in the script. For whatever reason, they were either never filmed or cut from the final version of the movie. You can see Wil's scene on the DVD, in the section marked “deleted scenes”. Nice.
Then there was the stuff that was actually good, the stuff that got drowned out by the dune buggy and it's friends. Like the point where the death of Data, who is beloved by pretty much everyone I know, is sinking in and Will Riker makes his little speech.
Now I'm not going to pin this anywhere, because it's so complex. First of all, the timing sucked. It needed to be either after a funeral – now there's a good idea! Or after enough time had gone by that the audience had time to grieve. If it was in at all, which it didn't have to be. I'll chalk it up to writer/director error and just say that every fan worth his salt knows what song Data was whistling when Riker found him on the holodeck.
So when Data's good and dead, made human, if you will, by his self-sacrifice, no one notices that he's been made human at all, because Will Riker's standing there going, "When I first met Data, he was trying to whistle. Funniest thing you ever heard. What was the song? I can't remember the song!" and seventeen people (me included) yelled "Pop Goes the Weasel!" and added a "you dumb shit!" silently in our heads. And the mood was ruined. Forgive us. Data had just died.
It was a long time – hours – before I came up with the self-sacrifice thing.
And it took two months before I realized that there's some really good stuff about Nemesis. The continuity is amazing, especially with regard to how Data sees and defines himself. Worf's presence is unexplained, but he has several wonderful moments. Riker and Troi have major devolepment in the form of getting married. Beverly gets promoted – even though that, too, got edited out – and Wesley returns to Starfleet. Only he's on the Titan, so you'll never see him, so just chill out, you Wesley bashers. There's some kind of moment for everyone. Well, except Geordi. Poor Geordi. He gets great screen time with Data though. And I can't really find it in my heart to argue too much with a movie that finally, after fifteen years, found a use for Deanna Troi.
Maybe Nemesis is crap. I don't know anymore. In fact, there's not much I do know. But what I believe, and you can disagree with me if you want, is that Nemesis had good equal to its bad, and if Ice Princess can turn a profit, Nemesis deserved to too. As terrified as Nemesis makes me for the future of this show – for the future of my life – I believe in Star Trek. I've come too far as a Trekkie not to believe.
I believe this new movie CAN WORK. I believe in Leonard Nimoy, who likes the script and has always been right about the relative success or failure of every movie. I believe in Zachary Quinto with his identical-to-Nimoy nose. I believe in the selling power of Jim Kirk, even if he is Chris Pine now. I believe in the fan-ness of John Logan, who may never be invited to a Star Trek convention, but who I will always want to meet. I believe in the good intentions of Rick Berman and Brannon Braga (at least in the beginning) and the creative genius of Michael Piller. I believe that J.J. Abrams knows what he's doing. I believe in the favouritism of Kathryn Janeway and the emotionalisim of Jim Kirk. I believe in the long-windedness of First Season Picard and the faith of Seventh Season Sisko. I believe that Jonathan Archer was an idiot and but Trip and T'Pol (not their romance) totally made up for it.
And I believe that the future will give me more opportunities to believe.

So, I've been meaning to post for a while regarding the Movie Event showing of "The Menagerie" on the big screen.
My group attended the evening of November 13. Interestingly, most of the group consisted of a bunch of us who went to see each of the re-released "Star Wars" films at the giant Zeigfield Theater in NYC when Lucas re-did the effects some years ago. We thought remastered Star Trek was a perfect thing for this group.
There were six of us - a Diva who sings "Carmen" at the Metropolitan Opera and elsewhere; an Exec Marketing VP for a TV network; a 2 time award winner for "Best Jazz Singer in New York"; an Artisan Carpenter (who Acts on the side); a simultaneous interpretor from Bosnia; and me. I say this because some Emo kid who was waiting on line for the latest slasher flick said very loudly "Look at those loosers going to see "Star Trek"...". I admit curiosity to exactly what his definition of "loser" means...
We met for dinner at Dallas BBQ on 42nd Street, directly across from the theater. If you've never been to NYC, Dallas BBQ is a football field sized restaurant that caters mostly to tourists, but has the best damn Barbequed Chicken within about a 150 mile radius. Our Bosnian interpreter was "fascinated".
Our showing was sold out. We thought being a half hour early would get us good seats and we were very incorrect. In this enormous 4 story theater we were up near the very top (we also wanted to sit together, so...). Looking out at the audience, there were lots of business suits, and a number of people were actually extremely well dressed (though they could have been coming from work). There were a few "Star Trek" T-Shirts in evidence, but not much more than that. One poor soul was dressed as an Andorian, but sat in the very back and would not let me take their picture. Most of the audience did appear to be in "our" age group (30's and 40's) with more people in their 50's and 60's than younger (or so it appeared to us). The audience was equally divided between male and female (which seems to be more of a TOS thing than the later series, which seem skewed towards the male viewer).
The Movie finally began, and there was a prologue by Rod Roddenberry. It really seemed to be a commercial for the remastereds on DVD, but still, it kept the interest of the audience, and you could see his genuine affection for his father's work.
The Menagerie was shown in it's entirety - including both sets of credits. Many viewers around the country later complained it was too dark - there were moments when I did think it a trifle dim, but it never really bothered any of us. Interestingly, when the Enterprise is NOT in a star system, they do show it with running lights, and looking rather dark - it makes sense, really. The cleaned up video is truly wonderful - the colors are not at all garish, for instance, Uhura and Scotty's uniforms glow with a deep regal red rather than the more orangey-red that always showed up on our TVs. The Bridge looks spectacular. The CGI in this showing did not appear cartoonish, though I hear in some of the other episodes it can do so.
What I found particularly wonderful were the cleaned up Matte Paintings - the Citadel on Rigel VII was magnificent, as was the cleaned up Talos IV horizon. Very Wonderful! I liked the changes done to the mattes on Starbase 11 - the adding of more detail, more lights, even moving ships. Some complained they weren't "exciting" enough - Hello! In theatre we call that "upstaging" - you don't have a background be so interesting that it fights with the drama down front. I thought the changes were just right.
Except for the slight "jarringness" of having ending and second beginning credits in the middle of the presentation, "The Menagerie" actually holds it own extremely well as a cinematic presentation. Afterwards, many people remarked on how they'd fogotten how well written it was and wished there was more good writing like it around.
Interestingly, Kirk really does come across as a total womanizer on the big screen moreso than he does on TV. And even the two straight guys in our group agreed that Jeffrey Hunter was probably the handsomest actor in all the Trek incarnations. Our Bosnia remarked on how odd it was to finally see it without it being dubbed into her language!
"The Women!", Spock's empassioned cry, actually garnered huge laughs. Seems no matter how "canon hounds" try to explain that one, it just sticks out like a sore thumb.
Once "The Menagerie" was over, there was another "commercial" for the DVDs, previewing the Second Season of remastered episodes. It was well-received by the audience, and the whole place erupted into cheers with the line "after 40 years you will finally see a Gorn blink...".
There was no mention of the upcoming film, and I think that was probably a good idea. This was NOT the crowd to tout the "re-boot" to - these were, for the most part, old die-hard fans of the original series who are tentative about the new project. It was as if the HD-DVD's were sort of a present and apology to them - a loyal fanbase which basically kept much of Paramount alive over the years and has been a great boon to their new parent company, CBS. It appeared to me that this was CBS/Paramount's way of "having their cake and eating it too" - a new "reboot" movie for younger fans and some of the older fans that can handle it, and a dusting and polishing of the original series for the older fans who like Shatner/Nimoy/Kelley/Nichols just fine thanks.
I mentioned the TV exec who was with us. When he was leaving the office to go to the movie he mentioned where he was going to a VERY senior exec there - a man who had been with NBC in his younger days during the 1960s, who said "cancelling that show was quite possibly the stupidest thing done in that entire network's history..."

Trekdom: Professor Weaver, thank you so much for the taking time to speak with us. Like many teachers and scholars, you've had success using Star Trek in the classroom. Whether giving introductory lectures on modern intellectual history or delving into complex debates about religion, philosophy, science, and politics, Star Trek has been a useful teaching aid. Why is that? Is it simply because artifacts of contemporary popular culture are useful teaching aids, or is there something unique and special about Trek?
Trekdom: If you could characterize Star Trek's overall stance on religion and the existence of God(s), what would you argue? Was there a consistent message throughout the various series, or did the message change over time?
TD: It's interesting because many fans argue that Gene Roddenberry's secular humanism and personal intolerance for faith and organized religion contradicted his proclamations of "infinite diversity in infinite combinations." When the later series treated mysticism, spirituality, and faith with more respect, Star Trek started to finally live up to its professed embrace of multiculturalism and competing worldviews. Any thoughts here?
TD: Star Trek is at its best when it deals with complex social issues in provocative ways. Those examples of social commentary could be quite preachy at times, as with "Let that Be your Last Battlefield," "Who Mourns for Adonais," and "Who Watches the Watchers." Still, Trek asks viewers to think and reflect about important issues. However, with Star Trek: Enterprise, it seemed like that aspect was lost amidst laser fights, steamy decon rub-downs, and Vulcan zombies in space. I can think of only one episode ("Chosen Realm") that approached the topic of religion in a direct way. Do you share my frustration here, or would you say that ENT had much to say about religion and philosophy?
TD: Star Trek is now in the hands of J.J. Abrams, whose previous work on Lost explored the conflicts between a man of science (Jack) and a man of faith (John Locke). If Abrams' 2008 Star Trek reboot recreates those types of dichotomies and uncompromising battles, would that be good for Star Trek, or would you like to see something much different?
TD: Thank you for your time. It was a pleasure.

Weapons! I have always been fascinated by weapons. I started collecting them from a fairly young age. I got a bow and arrows for Christmas when I was about 12 years old. Later on, I would go to the little weapon stores in the mall & buy whatever I could including a small knife that was disguised as a pen and various metal keychains that sort of resembled brass knuckles. I've bought swords, daggers and axes at fairs. One of my favorites is a midieval flail.
Guns were the best though. I shot my dad's guns whenever I got a chance. I was so excited when I was old enough to buy my own. My first gun was a tiny little .22 Jennings semi-automatic. I call it my James Bond gun. The coolest to shoot is my MAC-11. The biggest is the AR-15 but I think my favorite will always be a good old fashioned revolver. I love guns!
I was thinking recently about today's weapons compared to what we might have in the future. The possibilities are endless! On the big screen, some movies set in the future use weapons similar to today's, such as in Aliens and Serenity. Star Wars uses a lot of both kinetic and energy weapons, while Star Trek seems to use mostly energy weapons.
Which is better? Both have their pros and cons, I'm sure. It would be interesting to shoot a phaser. Although I think it would be hard to compare that to the first time I shot a revolver. I would miss the heavy, cold, hard steel, the strong kick-back and the BOOM! I admit it would be fun to play with a phaser and experiment with it. I would try using it to cook pop-tarts and weed the garden, just as much as I would use it to shoot stuff. From what I saw in the show I always wondered if I could dodge the phaser blast, as slow as it seems to go. I also thought it was funny how they would brace themselves before they shot, like there was this huge kick-back from the phaser discharge. Then again, it would be nice to not worry about running out of ammo and misfiring. Star Trek's weapons could be the solution to a lot of problems.
Kinetic verses energy weapons- are both needed to keep the peace? In your idea of a perfect world, which would be used? Personally I just like things that go BOOM!

Hello fellow fans! I've always been a big fan of sci-fi. If it has aliens and space adventures, you can count me in. I've been following Star Trek for a while now. The series has always meant a lot to me because I shared it with my dad. I started watching it when I was about 14 years old. I used to watch my dad's favorite shows with him. It was a nice way to spend time with him when I was a kid. Shows such as "V", "War of the Worlds", "Hill Street Blues" and "A-Team" were among my favorites, but when I was introduced to Star Trek: TNG, I was hooked for life. We would share a bottle of tonic water & lemon slices while we watched a new episode every week. It's such a fond memory to me. To this day we still quote Picard to each other. It may be a little nerdy, but we never cared.
Star Trek had so much to offer. The episodes had a little of everything in them. I remember watching in anticipation, hoping that Riker and Troi would just hurry up and get together. I admired Worf's courage and sense of honor and Data's awesome capabilities and constant desire to feel human. Picard will always be my favorite captain, by far. It was easy to grow fond of the TNG crew and even the villains. The Borg were quite scary and Q was so horrible but I couldn't help but like him.
I was pretty sad when the series ended. I knew any new ones just wouldn't be the same but I did enjoy DS9, Enterprise and everything I've seen so far of TOS. I still love to catch episodes on cable when I can and hearing thoughts about the show from other fans. I hope that ST stays around for a good long time. I, just like so many others, have been anxiously awaiting the new film! I'm torn between wanting to know every little detail that comes out about it and just going into the theater completely surprised and open minded. I've also been looking forward to Star Trek Online for the last couple years. The images I've seen look very promising. I used to dream of how cool it would be to fly around the galaxy exploring and having adventures. I can't wait to have a chance at it in STO!
So, that's how I got involved in this crazy Star Trek world.
From The New York Times, May 23rd, 1982:
"An Enterprise for Trekkies," by Susan Chira
They were soaked with rain and huddled in blankets, but the 500 fans who had waited for hours yesterday to see the New York preview of the new "Star Trek" movie - "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan"- considered it part of the fun.
"If people put up with the rain, the hours on lines and the pigeons all day long," said 31-year-old Robert Ildefonso, near the front of the line, "that's the trademark of the Trekkie."
The film, which will formally open in New York on June 4, is the second one based on "Star Trek," the science-fiction series of the 1960's that has been in televised reruns for a number of years.
Ralph Schiano, 28, said he had been waiting since early morning outside the Loews State I theater on Broadway at 45th Street. Wet to the skin and clutching a dark green blanket, Mr. Schiano nevertheless confessed to feeling pleased with himself. He was the first in line.
By arriving at 1:30 A.M. yesterday for a show that was to begin at 8:30 P.M., he managed to beat the others to the theater. Behind him, the line stretched half a block up Broadway to 48th Street and then around the corner, almost to the Avenue of the Americas.
According to the fans, Mr. Spock, one of the characters in the television series, will be killed off in the movie. One person had plastered the mailbox in front of the theater with a copy of "The Daily Tribune" headlined, "Spock Dies, Kirk is Heartbroken."
The fans gave similar reasons for their devotion: addiction to the series, or in the case of younger followers, the reruns and a love of science-fiction.
Warp 11, a punk band based out of Sacramento, CA, began their musical career at small venues and Trek conventions. With a rough and tumble mix of eclectic rock and TOS miniskirts, they've won the hearts of many Star Trek fans, as well as the respect of critics.
Although some songs, such as "Suds Me Up, Sulu" and "Set Phasers for Fuck!" are less than family-friendly, the band's unique style, inovative lyrics, and unmatched worship of gogo boots command attention. If anything, the band reminds us just how sexy Trek can be.
Here's hoping that the 2008 reboot of TOS coincides with the band's successful launch into the mainstream.
"She make it so."
Live: "Red Alert/Everything I Do, I Do with William Shatner"

Warning: The following rant contains excessively funny profanity.
To follow regulations or not to follow…
That is the question Capt. Janeway seems incapable of answering.
In this episode B'Elanna and Paris accidentally happen across a really nasty species who very aggressively defends its territory. They are promptly zapped unconscious by a neurological weapon.
Once aboard, the command staff reviews what happened, and Neelix is pretty sure he recognizes the species.
Paraphrasing: Neelix says,
"Whoa, these are bad dudes, I mean really badd ass muther fuckers! I personally
have never come across them, thank GOD! And, no one who ever has lives to tell
the tale! No one knows anything about them at all, except it REALLY pisses them
off when someone steps on their turf. And the reason that no one knows anything
about them is because the only thing that returns from an encounter is a ship
full of sorry dead bastards. Even the Borg let some people escape. These badd
ass muther fuckers don't."
To that the Voyager crew says, "Huh." *chew gum loudly twirl fingers in hair*
Then they examine something that indicates the size of the badd ass muther fuckers’ territory is such that it would take the Voyager and crew 15 months out of their way to go around their empire. Apparently, their territory is 30 months wide and 30 months tall but less than a month or so thick.
So what does, Capt. "ooh we have to let these people blow themselves up because of the PD" Janeway say?
To that Tuvoc says, "Captian, you just suprised me! Would it change your mind if I reminded you that Starfleet Regulations forbid us to tresspass?"
Janeway says, "Fuck no!"
Seriously what the fuck! First she's all, "No we must save the Ocampa, fuck you guys and your families and the fucking Prime Directive….” Then, "Fuck them! The PD says we can’t get involved, so let them blow themselves up! Then, "Fuck no we aren’t trading our stories for some covert technology that is going to get us half way home in about 0.68 seconds!" And then, "Fuck starfleet regulations."
Jesus Fucking Christ I hate this bitch!
To make the episode even worse... Nancy boy Mr. Oedipus complex himself Ens. "Im saving my penis for Janeway" Kim, with the worst cheesy grin, ever, on his face, begins to assure mommy Janeway about how he can easily get around some border sensors for a species he knows nothing about, who have deployed sensors he knows nothing about, and all while not knowing or having the first fucking clue about what other defensive measures these badd ass muther fuckers have in place.
Then Cmdr. "Harry Kim is my condom while I'm in Janeway" Chakotay, decides arbitrarily that "there is no way they have enough ships to guard that much territory." Remember, these are the bad ass mother fuckers that no one knows fucking dick about because, like U.S. Marines, they kill everything they see. But, of course Chakotay already knows their tactical disposition.
Then there is the realization that this empire or whatever is either razor thin, or Jane-so-stupid is willing to dump her crew into a situation she knows nothing about, in an extremely dangerous environment, with aliens who are going to actively seek them out to destroy them, for anywhere from a few weeks to a couple of months. Sound familiar?
Janeway is at least consistent in this regard: She has no problem shitting on her crew’s safety and well being for arbitrary reasons.
Shortly after the meeting I had to turn off the TV. Enough is enough.
There was one great moment though. In the shuttle Paris basically tells B'Elanna that he is surprised she doesn't fuck more, what with her Klingon whore-moans and all. Then this proposition (paraphrasing), "When you get tired of Ens. Crotch Rot and want a real man, come chat me up, I'll lay you out like a pop queen wanna-be under the stars in my holodeck sailing ship program."
