The new starwars will suck more than the new star trek.
Starwars never had some the scope and depth in the characters as startrek so I cant see starwars as having anywhere to go but recycling the same old story about the fight between the light and dark side of the force using lots of CGI and tv looking actors. Omg its gonna be a disaster.

well an aircraft carrier would only be about half as big than one of the star trek starships with few exceptions.

1100 feet for a nimitz.

and then we face the problem of how big the ships in star trek actually are






lets say that a more modern ship from TNG was about 600 to 700 meters so about 2000 feet.

The USS vengeance is then about the size of an imperial star destroyer at around 1600 meters..over 5000 feet.

The new enterprise is as big as a galaxy class....

So star trek ships would be larger than real ships by allot. Several football fields...(300 feet in the US)-so the USS vengeance is about 16 and a half football fields long....

I think that the relaunch made HUGE ASS ships to one up original star trek. I am not a big fan of the idea. I liked the progressively larger ships as time passed. TOS to TNG having increasing sizes made sense as technology was improved.


Those are HUGE Ships, my GOD! Relative to a kilometer in length, they are GIGANTIC!

Thanks so much for bringing this all into perspective, as to the relative sizes involved. Excellent Trekkie factoid.

Regards,

NAM

You're probably right, but they are really working hard on the story-line with tons of consultation with Lucas, trying to capture the feel of the original - they HAVE to hit it out of the park, or else, but I'm not happy with Abrams (did I get that right?) the director who ruined Star Trek, he likes to use distracting effects like lens flares, and you can't even really see what's happening it's all blurred swirling nonsense - you're right he'll probably totally mess it up and ruin Star Wars also.

Consultation with Lucas lol that's why it will fail.
The original starwars movie the best of all of the by far the screen play was not written by Lucas.
Lucas is an introvert with a childish ego he will interfere enough to make sure it fails.


I agree on the Lens flares the action scene with the Klingons on that planet was abysmal I could hardly see what was going on just lots of flashes and people jumping around.

I'm a huge trekkie, watched all the original series back when I was a kid, and am really greatfull to Abrams, without him the Star trek franchise would have probably died out.

I've been an avid trekkie for most of my 47 years and I seem to be drawn towards making 2 hr.CGI movies of some of the paperback novels about TOS.Probably won't ever happen,but,as a fan,I'd like to compare my imagination to theirs.Some of the books held more excitement than the movies. btw can anybody tell me the name of the novel where kirk and crew ended up inside a black hole called the kabreigny object with picard and his enterprise to save zephram Cochran and the companion?

Star Trek is great scifi, almost the best. The mmorpg is fun to play as well, I have 3 lvl 50's. If only the ships were able to transform into huge robots, otherwise they would lose to the Autobots/Decepticons
