Star Trek Into Darkness Condition Green

J.J. Abrams said recently Star Trek Into Darkness begins with a group of people [USS Enterprise crew] being tested in a way they have never been tested before.

 Away missions are risky business. Vulcan's are experts in logic, well equipped to purge themselves of all human emotions or so you would think. These guys are the smart ones. Humans on the other hand are prone to emotional impulses which is why we screw up so much. But how logical is it to descend into a scalding hot volcano in a bionic suit? Remember, Mr Spock in particular followed the teachings and philosophies of Surak:

Logic and Emotional Control. His cunning ancestors were an extremely violent race of people who waged almost constant warfare against each other. Technological leaps in Vulcanian society pushed the species to near extinction which now ironically, thanks to J.J. Abrams new movie timeline, is now scattered across the galaxy. Now, I'm not getting all logical on you but shouldn't Dr McCoy be cutting in, complaining right about now?

'Wheres the D*M logic in lowering yourself into a violently active volcano, Spock? Good God man, have you lost your vulcan mind?'

Star Trek Into Darkness will likely appeal to naughty young minds exploring new frontiers, so its neat Uhura(played by Zoe Saldana) and Spock are all wrapped up in each other. Uhura pecks her vulchie and Spock's all set for his volcano gig. Freeze the volcano and rescue the Nibiru creature inside without being detected or blowing the prime directive. Sounds simple doesn't it?

All helmsman Sulu had to do was flick a few switches controlling the shuttlecrafts descent and altitude above the lava flow. Spock's dangling off a cable and then Sulu (played by John Cho) goofs up big style by losing his nerve. Can you believe it? Spock should have fallen to his death, leaving behind a fazed Sulu aboard the shuttle trying to figure out what went wrong. Heck yeah, it had to be the intense heat blitzing the shuttles impulse engines didn't it? We knew that!!! 

Maybe this is where Pavel Chekov should chime in with, 'I can do zat!'

 Live Long and Prosper, Trekkers, Niners and Trekkies!

Love it! Totally entertaining. :D

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Maybe he can do zat!
All questions will be answered soon...

Tony Laplume said...

Chekov was officially turned into the Wesley Crusher of the classic cast in the reboot. Hopefully a bigger role this time!

Thanks Morgan, I'm trying to be creative.

Hes got the Russian accent nailed for sure, Alex.

Chekov's made big news in his redshirt, Tony.

I saw the looong preview of Star Trek while waiting for The Hobbit to start playing. Thought it was super cool:)


SpacerGuy said...

Me too. I love the cloak and daggery approach Bad Robot is using to confuse us, Nutschell, John Harrison's face off with Captain Kirk is exciting, I'm looking forward to Dr Carol Marcus stepping into the fold... co-creator of the genesis device.

Ellie Garratt said...

Hehe. I can't wait for the film's release!

SpacerGuy said...

Me too Ellie, I'm still trying to figure out why John Harrison has turned bad guy.
