STAR TREK 4 - FIVE YEAR MISSION

 Star Trek 4 has been shelved. On January 8th, 2019, Deadline reported Paramount Pictures "shelved"  the fourth Star Trek film. Therefore when contract negotiations collapsed between Pine, Hemsworth, and Paramount, the studio hopes ended with Star Trek 4 boldly going nowhere -

CHRIS PINE, CHRIS HEMSWORTH


USS ENTERPRISE NCC 1701

Good things change, even the USS Enterprise NCC 1701 5 year mission doesn't last as confirmed by Deadline. Add to this hellulva cosmic explosion, director S.J. Clarkson (Star Trek's second last hopeful for Star Trek4) who beamed away to direct HBO's Game of Thrones. So what in red Vulcan is going on?

S J CLARKSON


IO9 reports Paramount Pictures had no comment to make about Star Trek 4 which might be shelved. Conversely IGN raises interesting points about "the troubled Star Trek 4" stalemate stating the movie is reportedly cancelled.

The most famous starship in Earth history, seen here won't be navigated by our favorite Russian, Chekov in the Kelvin timeline ever again. (J.J. Abrams) This is tragic news and without Captain Kirk to command the starship Enterprise? Now what are they going to do...


ANTON YELCHIN


 J.J. Abrams said Anton Yelchin's character "Pavel Chekov" would not be recast for the fourth film. Set against a budget of $185 million ST Beyond's reboot grossed $343 million worldwide. Some say these numbers are disappointing but I believe deciding how to solve Star Trek's problems is a bit like deciding which part of your brain you want amputated.





QUENTIN TARANTINO

Lets look at it this way, the starship USS Enterprise NCC 1701 is in dry-dock and the crew supposed to operate the ship some say, all want pay hikes. There is hope on the horizon, Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek could still happen if the R-Rated classification changes.




MULTIPLE CHOICE Q and A : TRY ANSWERING

Should studio Paramount Pictures, replace the crew of the USS ENTERPRISE NCC 1701? 


IS IT TIME FOR PARAMOUNT TO SEARCH FOR A YOUNGER CHEAPER CREW? 

How would Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek play out under Captain Kirk's (Kelvin Timeline) USS Enterprise 1701 and her crew? 

A: Lets join hands and unite the Federation of Planets in Peace! or

B: No! No! Never, Never, we want all out War! -  Klingons never surrender and never trust a Romulan. The Vulcans have an axe to grind with their most sacred holy temples of Amonak, T'Panit and Spocks Mount Seleya now blown to spacedust.

What do you think Tarantino will do? 
Who will Paramount Pictures get to direct Star Trek 4?
Who do want to see holding the directorial reigns?
Would you go to a R-Rated Star Trek movie?

Live Long and Prosper.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TREKKERS



Happy New Year Trekkers!  It was Isaac Asimov who created "positronic" used in conjunction with so many other words for example positronic supercomputer, positronic robot, positronic brain and of course the android, Star Treks Mr Data, but I wonder which came first?

The word or the android?

POSITRONIC OR ANDROID? What do you think?

TOP TEN STAR TREKNOBABBLE

Star Trek is a thrilling adventure which began in 1966. Heres a list of Top Ten tongue twisting - Technobabbles which Star Trek actors use in films and the tv series. We usually see medical or engineering teasers unraveling aboard these federation starships. At least 10 technobabbles are going to melt your brain because we've had 13 Star Trek movies soon to be 14, with six tv shows or seven including the animated one. So lets boldly explore scientific phenomena where no trekkers have geeked out before.



Technobabble sounds so right only because the pseudo-scientific lingo conveys such a realistic meaning (which many actors dread) but really technobabble is good only because its full of baloney still..... Treknobabble works. Treknobabble is impressive. Lets face it, treknobabble gives fans enough Star Treknical sophistication to geek out with at Star Trek conventions because its fun!

Have you got enough Positronic analytical prowess to try out these tongue twister top ten technobabbles?



Here a taste:




10. SCOTTY: The emergency bypass control of the matter anti-matter integrator is fused. (ST TOS; That Which Survives)


Matter integrator..... duh what?

TIMESCAPE


9. DATA: It seems to be a highly focused aperture in the space time continuum. Its energy signature matches that of the temporal fragments we observed earlier. However it is about 1.2 million times as intense. I believe this may be the origin of the temporal fragmentation. (Timescape: STTNG)

Understand any of that? I think I got lost after the  aperture thing.....

STAR TREK FIRST CONTACT


8. DATA: Are you using a polymer based neuro-relay to transmit the organic nerve impulses to the central processor of my positronic net? If that is the case, how have you solved the problem of increased signal degradation inherent to organic synthetic transfer.... (ST FIRST CONTACT)



7.LAFORGE:It uses trionic initiators in the warp coil . They have a reputation of strange side effects, especially when you start playing around with them.

DATA: There have been reports of warp bubbles and other subspace deformations.

LAFORGE: So, what if that's what happened? Not a warp bubble, but a subspace transistor funnel.
RIKER: Connecting two points through subspace?

TRIONIC INITIATORS AND WARP BUBBLES, NOTHING UNUSUAL.

TIME SQUARED


6. DATA: Let us also assume he has initiated an tachyon pulse at the same coordinates in space in all three time periods. In that case, it is possible that the convergence of three tachyon pulses could've ruptured the subspace barrier and created an anti-time reaction.
LAFORGE: I see where you're going, Data. And because anti-time operates opposite the way normal time does, the effects would travel backwards through the space-time continuum.



5. RIKER: Mister Barclay. Everyone's still trying to figure out exactly how you did it.
BARCLAY: Well, it just occurred to me that I could set up a frequency harmonic between the deflector and the shield grid using the warp field generator as a power flow anti-attenuator, and that of course naturally created an amplification of the inherent energy output.
RIKER: Uh huh. I see that.




4.EMH MARK II: The Secondary gyrodyne relays and the propulsion field intermatrix have depolarized. STAT TREK VGR (MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE)




3. RIKER: Okay, Morta. The Enterprise computer system is controlled by three primary main processing cores cross-linked with a redundant melacortz ramistat and fourteen kiloquad interface modules. The core element is based on an FTL nanoprocessor with twenty five bilateral kelilactirals, with twenty of those units being slaved to the primary heisenfram terminal. Now you do know what a bilateral kelilactiral is?
MORTA: Well, of course I do, human. I am not stupid. (RASCALS)

Warning: Repeated viewing could trigger some kind of psychosis.
2. ARTURIS: ".....Its a simple matter of extracting the iconometric elements, and triaxilating a recursion matrix" ST VOYAGER (Hope and Fear)

HERES THE NO1 TOP TEN TREK TECHNOBABBLE.

1.

DATA: Computer, establish a security code for access to all functions previously transferred to Bridge.
COMPUTER: Enter code.
DATA: One seven three four six seven three two one four seven six Charlie three two seven eight nine seven seven seven six four three Tango seven three two Victor seven three one one seven eight eight eight seven three two four seven six seven eight nine seven six four three seven six. Lock.
COMPUTER: Security code intact for all specified inquiries and orders.
DATA: Computer, initiate cascade sequence, accepting instructions from Commander Data en route. (STAR TREK TNG BROTHERS)

Ah ha, so my trekker friends, not all technobabble requires confusing big words - just a good ole positronic brain like Datas!

Which series gets your No1 vote for the best treknobabble?

1. Classic
2. TNG
3. Voyager
4. DS9
5. Enterprise
6. TAS
7. Discovery
