UPN (ended 2005)
LOL @ lobo...I'd do it...but I need to hire a fat, beared guy to go with me as Riker...just imagine all the gawks I'd get from fanboys. To bad there is not a convention nowhere even near my area and the surrounding areas so there is no hope in that.
I remeber this one time @ school I was sitting down on a bench listening to the N-Gage and drinking water and this dude randomly starts talking to me...and he was like "You like Star Trek?!...wa?" LOL! Like he's never seen a girl into sci-fi it was awesome....
Not only sociopathic but histrioric! LOL...they get into included into a awful sterotype like the rest of us.
The problem with the media promotion is non-fans are already deep rooted with the sterotypes of the fans being overweight, lazy, and annyoing to non-fans who know nothing of the franchise at "stake". It's prolly also hard for the promoters trying to get a good word out, mainly when the show or movie is mainly geared towards fans and other genre related fans. Just imagine being a person who's never even heard of Spock or Kirk going to see that movie because of their fav. big name star...their confusion would just be mindblowing. "What? Whats Warp Drive?!, "Why does that dude have pointed ears?!", "What did they do to my fav. actor?!". Hey, it could mean an end of a career for any big name...confused non-fans watching their protary something they cannot even imagine forthemselves, and us totally rejecting everything about that movie.
Thats the whole point of the big names. More $$$, not a bigger fanbase, they think are they luring us in when all the pigs are doings is running us away. paramount's misguided attempted to revive the franchise...fat chance.
|u kidding...I'm excitced! maybe because I'm still young and still in the process of learning and "practing" Trek. |
|Could see a story involving Section 31, and a hunt for changelings on Earth, in regards to the Dominion War storyline. Lots of routes that could take, like them trying to sabotage Utopia Planitia, the McKinley station, etc.|
