What are we seeing? A twentieth Century Rome? Bread and Circuses

I hope you enjoy the Kennedy book. And be sure to fill us in on any surprising background or additional info in the Into Darkness novelization.

I never thought of Bread and Circuses, but who said it had to be a "live" death? I like it! A point, although my other answer is still walking around, so to speak.

Lee, I will certainly mention anything new in the novelization of Into Darkness.

Bread and Circuses reminded me of the other deaths and fights the bridge crew whitnessed from Arena to Gamesters to Savage Curtain.

Yes, the Enterprise crew seems to have had an almost constant feed of reality TV. They'd have done better to watch their DVDs of older shows...

Lee,

I think "Well Scotty, now you've done it" (from A Taste Of Armageddon) is another that I really like for the reasons I stated.  This time though, Bones is not being very helpful.  I see this example of him complaining a bit rather than being in unity with Scotty.

 

Nelson,

I think the Bread and Circuses example (death on screen) is a great catch.  When I was submitting my answers, I just went from the pilot on through all of the episodes I could remember, which is why I listed them in approximate season (if not production) order.

"Well Spock, if you're going into the lions den, you'll need a medical officer." It's pretty neat how Kirk ,Spock, McCoy are so close and respect each other, and also how Scotty, Sulu and Chekov and Uhura do as well. They really liked each other. The new film is starting to show that of course.

It's funny about the Bread and Circuses example of a killing in the teaser. For some reason, it seemed kinda funny to me when I thought about it. Of course it's a horrific sight for the bridge crew. But the announcer made it funny.

I just got home from seeing the new movie. So much faster paced than the TV series or the original cast movies. And with CGI they can do anything. Dazzling to look at, but I miss the old days when DeMille had to figure out how they were going to part the Red Sea and Roddenberry had to figure how to show a spaceship on a modest TV budget. I enjoyed it but "reboot" doesn't quite capture how different from the original it strikes me. The one constant that I enjoy (so far), and I don't think this is a spoiler, is that the core characters have the same regard for one another that they did in the original. I like that. Don't we all want to work with a group of people we know we can trust no matter what?

 

On the negative side, the picture (digital) was slightly stretched, so they all looked they had too much cortisone. And the talkers! Sheesh - as much as I love home video everyone seems to think they are in their private home theater no matter where they are. And I love listening to the music over the end credits, and the crush of people leaving and talking just spoil it.

Re: trivia:

 

The Enemy, the enemy within!

 

Professor Starnes?

 

 

Bryan, the movie has been compared to video games for how fast the action is, but a lot of recent films all have this kind of quality! It's just the nature of the current trends. Kids grew up on them, so it's only natural. Also, have you ever heard how JJ Abrams talks?  :)

 

Agreed about the cast. I liked them more this time around.

Yes, Professor Starnes who hurt Kirk's feelings by dying and not recognizing him first. Nice points at the end there, but Scott came out ahead. His turn.

Cool. Yes, he wasn't very nice to Kirk, dying on him like that.

Scott, nice job getting all those answers!

While we are waiting on Scott's next question, I thought I'd toss something out.

I noticed today, that in both Star Trek TOS and TNG, there are often references to the same star systems. Either by design, or accident, I was surprised to find that one system, a planet actually, is mentioned in Where No Man Has Gone Before that is the same star system as one that the Enterprise visits in Encounter at Farpoint. The same planet. Its also named in Enterprise. Was it an accident or deliberate?

So what is the star system called? And planet.

Nelson,

Thanks for taking the next question, as I don't have one ready yet.  And it's another good one, I see!  I'll really have to think about this one.

Thanks Scott. In my usual verbosity, I probably made the question harder then it is. It's really asking for one planet name. But the star system relates to something in Star Trek Enterprise.

Is it Canopus? I can make a couple of other guesses if that one is wrong.

OK, I could go more obscure or less obscure. I'll go less obscure--Delta Vega?

Obscure might be the better choice depending on how you define it.

I wish I could I could say if you were getting warmer or cooler, but I'm not familiar with that region of space.

But by process of elimination, I think you'll get there soon enough!

It feels like I'm dying...of suffocation...in the icy cold of space.

What I'm doing, as you have surely surmised, is going through the planets I remember being mentioned in Where No Man Has Gone Before, as I haven't seen Encounter at Farpoint in more than 25 years. I'll take one more shot and then let someone else try. Kaferia (or whatever planet gave us Kaferian apples)?
