He said Star Trek is too “philosophical”? Screw that noise.
I don’t know when this interview happened but I AM SAD AND ANGRY NOW
The philosophies in Star Trek are kinda part of the actual setting. If you don’t get that, why are you allowed to make Star Trek movies.
Sigh. The whole point of Star Trek is that it’s philosophical. If you don’t want philosophical Science Fiction, there’s plenty of that for you to enjoy, but Star Trek is philosophical. Philosophy is part of Star Trek’s DNA, and if you’re given the captain’s chair, you’d better damn well respect that.
What an asshat. Letting Abrams reboot Star Trek was like handing the keys of a ‘62 Corvette to a man who doesn’t like to drive and doesn’t quite “get” the whole point of having cars in the first place.
How geeky is this? I remember this ad from TV Guide, back when Wrath of Khan was aired on the ABC Sunday Night Movie. (Artwork by Bob Larkin.)

Quit creepin’, Spock.
Well, jeez, can you blame him? I mean, when she’s putting it right out there like that…
I had no idea Frank Frazetta had ever so much as considered doing anything Star Trek-related, but here’s a color concept that’s been attributed to him. Too bad it wasn’t finished (to my knowledge, anyhow). Would’ve been cool!
Leonard Nimoy behind the camera on one of the Star Trek feature films. I’m guessing this was on The Voyage Home, since he didn’t wear the uniform for his brief scenes in The Search for Spock.
Got lost and wound up here. No Gorn so far.
Vasquez Rocks, California. Every Trekkie needs to go here.
Spock and some random naked chick posed like the iconic Star Wars poster, painted in the style of Frazetta. WTF?
(Artist unknown, but I’m pretty sure it’s not actually Frazetta.)
No idea of the provenance for this one… I saw it on Facebook with the caption “vintage Star Trek ad,” but I don’t know if that means it’s an authentic old ad, or just something done in the style of an old ad. (Hard to tell in the modern “remix culture.”)
Wherever it came from, it amuses me.

I’d like to have two of these t-shirts… one to wear, one to put in a frame and hang on the wall…
