Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity


No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Star Trek: J. J. Abrams, Damon Lindelof

Saturday, Aug 11, 2012

Rich and I decided to watch movies this morning and we put in "Star Trek" by J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof and as the progressed we started to wonder if and when the squeal was coming to the big screen.  So, I of course went to the computer and started to do some research on any squeal. As I found; there is of course one and it is in post-production and with a story line including "Kahn".

I very much enjoyed the new version that J.J.Abrams and Damon Lindelof were taking the "new crew".  What I don't understand is why would you take a story line that has not just been done in the original series but then continued as a squeal with the "Star Trek: the Wrath of Kahn".

I was excited to hear that there would be another movie being made but to go back to the ideas of the shows and previous movies is showing a lack of creativity.

If they really wanted to take the show into a new direction; as they have already changed the past and created a new future than incorporating what they have changed and start a new and alternate future should be the course of the "New: Star Trek".

For example: Since Spock's mother has been killed and Kirk's father has been killed; why not put together Spock's father and Kirk's mother and write a story around this angle.

This would be a different spin on Spock's and Kirk's relationship as this would now make them step-brothers.
A "family dynamic" that would effect future story lines and their relationship.

The new movies should look to a new course and new story lines to keep it alive.
