I agree with Darth Zulwalker:D

How to really appreciate sw is by watching other sci-fi films like the latest Star Trek for instance. I myself am a fan of other films(Terminator,Transformers,AVP) but when I rewatch sw, I think George Lucas is a genius, I learn to REALLY appreciate the bi-trilogies, and am glad to be a genuine fan.

But I don't think anybody deserved to be called a NEWBIE by anybody...I might be new here but I have children who are themselves fans; like me back in 1977-1983. Please don't get all worked up and emotional as I think Darth Zulwalker has a point there :D

Biggs, check out what Dranoel post about what actually happened before Star-Wars-Fun-atic and Darth Zulwalker posts were put into this thread instead ;)

Dranoel wrote:Star-Wars-Fun-atic, Darth Zulwalker,

We have no problem with a gathering to catch the new Star Trek movie. In fact, I think I might even catch it myself too :oops:

"Gabriel Sylar" (Heroes) as "Spock"... interesting ;)

It's just the original thread you guys posted in is meant for a different purpose.... If you read the first post in that original thread, I hope you understand.

In the true spirit of Fanboys...

Yes, I agree with Haldir, read the other post carefully to understand the meaning behind it, if it was meant as a joke or not? Everyone has views but if its to disrupt an event thats happening, its just not COOL even if its a Newbie so be carefull what you wrote and play nice with others even if you dont like them. :? :?

Hi Darth Nacho,

That was really fast!

I think you will like this movie.. I will keep for you buttons and movie poster also.

It smartly caters to original Trekkies and to vast new audience also..

I would recommend you guys to watch this movie.. It is not Star Wars of course but it still will appeal to the Sci-fi fans we truly are.

If your impression of Star Trek is boring..techno babble... This is not the case!

JJ Abrams has truly revitalised the series and I'm sure there will be more sequels to come.

Regards

So so true, even if you are not a fan this movie will make you one, the action starts from the beginning to end, take the breadth away with everyone glued to the screen, cant help it with lots action, comedy suspense and love scene all in one, JJ Abrams really change Star Trek universe with this movie. :o :o :o

There's an interesting article in the most recent issue of Newsweek that point out the different characters of Star Trek and Star Wars and which personality in today's world fit that personality.

An interesting read.

That was taken at the HSA Blood Bank at SGH for a blood drive that both SW and ST were invloved in - its called Blood Wars.
