  1. “Fans waiting for the home release of Star Trek into Darkness now have a date for the digital, DVD and Blu-ray releases.”

    What about fans waiting for the theatrical release of a good Star Trek movie?

  2. Wow, that’s a quick transition from a theatrical release to television…..literally before the summer is out. I was expecting around November.

  3. I have tried but I cannot get into this version of Star Trek. This is a fun adventure but not Star Trek. Into Darkness had so many plot holes I don’t know where to begin. The subtle hints and homages to “prime universe” Trek was thrown in just to appease weary fans I believe. (i.e. Daystrom Institute, Section 31, and Archer’s NX-01 model on Admiral Marcus’ desk) I hope that if a new Star Trek TV show is created it will be in the prime universe.

  4. No doubt on that, with regard to the series being in the prime universe…

    With that said, their nods weren’t nods at all, but just more bungling.

    Section 31 was a secret extra-Starfleet organization… Was… Is? Apparently just another department for Starfleet Command.

    The Daystrom Institute… Named after? Oh, right… Richard Daystrom… you know… the guy that invented Duotronics, which are never used in this universe, and created the M5 computer… you know… almost a decade after this… The Daystrom Institute shouldn’t even exist for another 50 years or so.

    And lastly, yeah, they included the NX-01… of that universe. Even though they suggest the timeline diverged because of Nero, they give us a model that looks similar to NX-01, but isn’t really it… Which means they’ve also changed Archer’s ship a century before their timeline alteration…

    Further evidence that this isn’t an altered original timeline, but was never ours to begin with.

  5. This is one Trek fan that will not be getting this DVD. I tried the first movie, which was full of plot holes, “Beam me across the universe” gee wiz technology and just bad movie making. I foolishly went to see this movie to see if the first movie was a fluke, or if this was going to be the way Trek is from now on. Unfortunately, I have my answer. Even bigger plot holes and no regard whatsoever for science, something the original Star Trek at least pretended to care about. It’s all about attracting the brain dead these days. After this effort, I will neither see nor support any more JJ Trek

  6. That’s depressing. As an Enterprise fan I’ll take any crumb of acknowledgement I can get, but if they aren’t going to even bother being consistent in that area, screw ’em Borg style.

  7. Personally, I think Enterprise should be given “new seasons” through IDW like some other properties have received. They were just getting to, what had to be by date, some of the most fascinating stuff of the era, the Romulan Wars… I thought Enterprise was better than Voyager.

  8. In terms of the characters and cast (with one exception) Enterprise was light years (snicker) beyond Voyager. Objectively speaking, the writing really wasn’t any better. “Breaking the Ice” is the worst episode of any Trek series, including “The Way to Eden” which is at least fun to laugh at. “B the I” doesn’t even have that. And “Doctor’s Orders” was essentially a remake of Voyager’s “One”. This is science fiction and that’s the best they can do?

    But subjectively speaking, it’s my favorite – from “Breaking Bow” to the end. Well, second to the last episode anyway.

  9. Like it or not, this is Star Trek, so you and the other people who have such an obdurate old-person ‘get off my lawn you kids’ attitude can either put up or find something else to watch-all of this negative hate is doing nothing for your bodies and psyches other than putting you in an early grave.

  10. The Daystrom Institute obviously exists even if we don’t always hear the computers speak like they do in the original shows (in fact, we hear the pod speak to Kirk as he gets out of it in the first movie.)

    It was established that Section 31 was a part of the Federation for quite a while, which means that it was a part of Starfleet, too-is that so hard to comprehend?

    The NX-01 and the events it was a part of happened before the divergence, as obviously did the warp flight of the Phoenix, so yes, they are included-that’s why the ships are featured as models on the table. So they look a little different-so what? The Enterprise and the other Starfleet ships are also streamlined as well.

    You and the other obdurate old people here are so tied to minutiae, that you’ve forgotten to enjoy the movies-but the then again, I am talking to fans obsessed with the founding moment, like religious fundamentalists. Thankfully, the people behind the current franchise aren’t like you, and will most likely live longer than you, and the people who saw the movie will be able to enjoy it much more than you.

  11. But they are being consistent-why must the Phoenix and the NX-01 look exactly like they did originally? Who would care except for obeseed fans like you that has to have ever rivet and bolt be like it was on the original shows and in the original movies?Phoenix

  12. Not going to happen-since it wasn’t a success, and since IDW has a lot on its plate besides Star Trek, it might not be a good idea.

  13. Aww, poor baby-did Abrams & Co. piss your widdle old obdurate obsessed fan ass off so much? They did do a story line about real world issues, even if you couldn’t focus on it because you’re obsessed with the founding moment like most of the other obdurates here. I’d say ‘Get a life’ like Shatner did, (and Nimoy did in his way) except that you’re way too far gone to listen.

  14. So, were I to have a model of the Spirit of St. Louis on my desk, I could make that a 747 and just say, “well, it’s got wings, close enough”?

    The Phoenix was the first warp ship. If you’re going to have a model of it, why wouldn’t you have a model of it?

    NX-01 was the first warp 5 capable starship. If you were going to have a model of that historic design of starship, why would that model be incorrect?

    Picard had a model of the Stargazer in his ready room. He used to have a model of a Constitution class starship. Why, when they decided to give him a model of the Stargazer didn’t they just pretend the Constitution model was it? Oh, right… because models are actually supposed to resemble the thing they’re modelling… you know… the whole point of a model.

    And it wasn’t a single rivet here or there. The whole shape of NX-01 was altered. I’m not the one who said that past was the prime past… They did.

  15. Yes… you miss my point entirely… not surprising.

    The Daystrom Institute is named after Doctor Richard Daystrom. The Daystrom Institute did NOT EXIST IN TOS. The Daystrom Institute was a TNG concept named after the illustrious Doctor. The question was, why was there a Daystrom Institute even extant in this time period. Follow along.

    Section 31 was never part of Starfleet, in point of fact… until JJ Abrams. Is that too hard to comprehend? Apparently so, since you think otherwise. I suggest you review DS9 and Enterprise.

    The events of Enterprise, in point of fact, were reliant on both before AND AFTER the divergence. It is true, Enterprise takes place in the 2150s, about 90 years prior to Nero’s incursion and about 105 years before ST(2009). However, it also takes place in a reality after First Contact. The events of First Contact, and the temporal incursion into the past by the Borg happen before the events of Enterprise. Ergo how they’re able to encounter the Borg. Thus, by changing the future, the events of Enterprise must also change… of course, that’s been ignored by these jokers…

    However, that’s not your point… your point is that because it comes before Nero, NX-01 still exists. Okay. I’m fine with that. But then you suggest that an excuse for them changing those previous models is that they have changed Enterprise as well… Are you really that dim? The Enterprise of JJ Abrams was constructed after Nero. It can look different. Things that looked different prior to the divergence? That’s the question… Why do they look different? Why does the Kelvin look like that? Enterprise is explainable. The others are not, unless we haven’t actually been in the Prime Universe. That explains it entirely.

    When you can actually read and comprehend what I’m saying, I’d be happy to discuss further.

  16. lol… I love how you think you’re the pure concept of cool, apparently. You don’t know how old any of us are. I’m pretty sure you’d be surprised. With that said, I can assure you, I’ll be watching Star Trek long after your attention span for Trek has concluded and you’ve moved on to the next sparkly thing to attach yourself to and misunderstand the basics of. The sooner JJ Abrams and your ilk are gone, the better off this franchise will be… leaving it to those of us that actually expect intelligent science fiction fare.

  17. Lol, oh, great nevilleross, please, please tell us: What were the real world issues STD addressed?

    Wow… if we actually get a response to this, it should be quite rich and good for a laugh.

  18. I would think that terrorism, the nature of revenge, and being a competent captain vs. being a hotshot who coasts on luck are many of the main ones. But idiots like you wouldn’t know this, being so trapped in the founding moment and all, and also acting like an obdurate old man with a severe case of ‘get off my lawn you kids’-itis. Please watch the movie again before you open your mouth.

  19. The ‘illerate’ one is you, dipshit, as well as being an obdurate old fuck trapped in the founding moment of Star Trek. Please watch the movie again, and stop mentioning ADHD in connection with it-you know NOTHING about the condition, and are being insulting to its sufferers.lliterate

  20. Act like a crotchety senior citizen, be treated as one. Prove me wrong for once.

  21. I have a hard time reading and comprehending bullshit by people that have brought into myths about Star Trek and have forgotten about the things in the movie that were also a part of the original series. I’m also not interested in people so obsessed with the design of a fictional starship that they can’t enjoy what was one of the best movies of 2013 (so far.) As I said, they designed both ships a little differently-so what?

  22. That’s because this is a reboot/clean slate, and they’re designing the ships differently, as the Enterprise and other 23rd century ship were redesigned.

  23. Actually, while it is a reboot, it is only a reboot, according to them, from the point of incursion from Nero. Now, I understand you’re okay with stupid science fiction where that doesn’t matter, but I’m not… and it has nothing to do with my age, as much as it’s an insult to my intelligence. Why have Leonard Nimoy as a crutch for the last two movies if they weren’t trying to connect the material? I presume from your comments about me being a geezer that you must be 12 or so, so, I can understand you not demanding proper story and continuity of writing, not within the entirety of Star Trek, but within their own films… I mean, I wasn’t that dumb at 12, but, there you have it… then again, I was being presented with TNG at 12, so I actually had quality Star Trek to feast upon freshly each week.

    But, I am confused about one thing: Why do you think post incursion ships being different is, in any way, a justification for pre-incursion ships being different? If your answer can be anything but puerile stupidity, I’m curious what it is… If it can only be that, don’t bother.

  24. Okay, you want to talk about those aspects of the film, let’s, but first, I need a few items clarified that my geriatric 35 year old mind cannot get beyond without first an explanation… so, if you’ll indulge me, we can have a perfectly fine Star Trek conversation…

    Terrorism. I presume you’re referring to Khan blowing up Section 31. Why did Khan blow it up? Because he had a beef with Admiral Marcus, wanted to access the super transporter there, and force the meeting where he could ambush the brass, right? Okay, yeah, I got that part… Now, why did Khan have the beef with Marcus? Because Marcus allegedly killed Khan’s men when he found out Khan had been using them in the torpedoes, right? So, here’s where it gets dodgy for me… Why was Khan hiding his men in the torpedoes? If he had access to them, why didn’t he wake them up? And what was the point of putting them in the torpedoes? Was the point of the torpedoes that they be used? And don’t torpedoes blow up? So, what was Khan doing? And what was Admiral Marcus doing? How was allegedly killing Khan’s men going to bend Khan to his will? And was Khan supposedly still aligned with Marcus right up to the bombing? If so, he surely knew that Marcus’ plan was to provoke a war with the Klingons that he thought was coming anyway, right? And, if that’s the case, why would he go to Kronos, the one place where, by going there, he would actually make manifest the plans of his enemy… And then, when Khan hears that Kirk and Enterprise have the torpedoes, why does he give up? He knew the torpedoes still existed, but should’ve thought his men were dead, right? So, why does he give himself up or tell Kirk to look inside them? According to Khan’s thinking, they shouldn’t have been there and Kirk should’ve just found the torpedoes that Marcus described… So, that’s the terrorism debacle, if you can sort that out for me and explain those basic things, we can move forward with the “theme” of terrorism, which was basically just a cover for Khan to steal something… it wasn’t terrorism, it was theft by means of bombing… but anyway…

    The nature of revenge… Revenge for what? Whose revenge? Khan wasn’t getting revenge on anyone. Clearly he knew his people weren’t dead. Marcus? What’s he have to get revenge for? He’s pre-emptively starting a war. Kirk or Spock? I guess Spock goes after him to get revenge, when any number of the others in cryo-freeze could’ve restored Kirk… at which point, they knew there was no point for revenge…… Hmmmmm… Carol Marcus for watching her father killed? She’s certainly got the most legitimate claim.

    Being a competent captain vs. being a hotshot… And he learned that how? By sacrificing himself like a hotshot, only to get bailed out of death by luck and Spock and Khan’s mystery super blood? Or Spock being competent because he goes crazy and goes after Khan personally when he could’ve just killed him from a distance and sourced the panacea blood from another superman… What part are you referencing there?

    I’m happy to discuss the movie and just this movie and the last… but you have to be willing to discuss them, too, and not just throw hollow punches.

  25. Actualy, I was going ot offer you an apology, since I replied to this post thru my email, which showed only the first part of your post with the awesome spelling. It did not show the Gary Seven part. But then you had to go and bring in “dipshit” and “old fuck”, which actually means I must have hit a nerve with regard to JJ Trek being for people that are highly entertained by the likes of Transformers and Pacific Rim. So, go reproduce yourself

  26. Typical old head fans, full of dirt and nothing else to offer but “back in my day.”

  27. I’ll be purchaing mine on September 10th. Wouldn’t miss this for the world!

    Khan: I am better.
    Kirk: At what?
    Khan: Everything.
