Alright, losers. You need to listen up. And you need to pay attention to the source here: a huge Star Trek dork. Captain Kirk is dead. Has been for awhile. He's not coming back. Trek, in general, is dead, and it's not going to change. It's time to get over it. You need to move on.

I went and watched their trailer, and I've gotta say that it's pretty impressive. Both in terms of technical achievement (although the mixing of stock footage with CG did come across kind of goofy) and just how fucking sad it is that all that time was wasted. Seriously, these people should knock it off with this stupid "bring back Kirk" bullshit and just concentrate on making more of those CG battle sequences - that was pretty fucking cool. Either way, the virginities of the people who are doing this will remain fully in tact.

Could something like this be a very cool and interesting project if Paramount took it on? Sure. But it's not going to happen. Nobody cares. You people need to face facts. It's time to go home. Home to your parents' basement.

Oh, and just to make sure that my nerd credentials stay fully in order: I'm real sure they're going to truck out a Constitution class starship to fight in a 24th century battle.
