It's official. The Flaming Nose founders have caught Star Trek fever and want to share that feeling with our readers and fellow fans. While the upcoming movie (set to release May 8th, 2009) is not technically a television topic, it definitely qualifies for the Nose. Without the original TV series, and the obsessive devotion of its multi-generational minions, it would not be possible to launch a movie of this scale. Paramount has always believed in the franchise. After countless TV spinoffs, movie sequels, conventions and documentaries...we eagerly await the latest incarnation. This movie prequel follows the early years of Trekkie icons Kirk and Spock, and is already one of the most highly anticipated Star Trek properties for the big screen. We can expect the best ever special effects and edge of the seat action, thanks to director J.J. Abrams who is hotter than Alpha Centauri. Also, we think we saw a flash of the young Kirk's butt in one of the many trailers circulating out there. Feel free to discuss and speculate endlessly.
I've checked out the official Star Trek movie site which is accessible from about 5 different locations now on The Flaming Nose. It is definitely worth a visit. Great music, pix, video and skins to download, but I could not find a count down widget. We are on a mission to boldly go and find one to post soon. Paramount geeks, if you are miraculously reading this, can you provide?
Over the next few weeks we will wax poetic and passionately about the immense and pulsating sociological event that is Star Trek.The actual brand STAR TREK is so powerful, it would definitely be able to survive a hostile encounter with an alien life-form on another planet. This is why most real-life NASA astronauts say that Star Trek was their inspiration for becoming pioneers on the Final Frontier. We agree 100% with that gung ho thumbs up, but are also so confident in our unconditional love for Star Trek, that we can allow UGC spoofs like the stop action gem below. Behold...a Star Trek Spock doll sings..."My Prerogative"! Live long and prosper, everybody!
