The most recent Star Trek film, 11, has two accompanying graphic novels, Countdown and Nero has anybody on here read them?

We need some new Star Trek on TV I reckon, only without the 'soft rock' theme tune like what 'Enterprise' had.............so that rules out Joe Bonamassa (only Joking!!!! :mrgreen: :P :wink: )

Beam me up Scotty.

I've just got to praise Alexander Courage (December 10, 1919 –May 15, 2008), who not only wrote the fantastic 'Theme from Star Trek', from the original television series but Courage also wrote the equally compelling 'Lost In Space' theme music.

Also equally talented was Jerry Goldsmith (February 10, 1929 – July 21, 2004), who wrote the theme music for 'Star Trek: The Motion Picture', an adaption of the original Courage theme (which Courage then orchestrated :shock: :lol: 8) ) as well as such astounding movie scores 'In Like Flint' (1967) as well as the previous 'Our Man Flint' (1966), and television series scores 'Dr. Kildare' (1961) and 'The Man U.N.C.L.E.' (1964)

To my eternal shame , I had no idea that the composer's name was Alexander Courage :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

Maybe SciFi could revive the franchise? They have done pretty well with some other series. With such a ready-made audience, it shouldn't be too hard. At least if the premise is good and they use a cast of relative unknowns. The problem is, what's the plot? We have been to the past, the future, alternative universes (although a show set in an evil alt universe might be fun. Use that federation logo with the knife through it. Bad Kirk seeing the evil of his ways and the Enterprise trying to overthrow the Empire), Various quadrants. Where is there left to go?

Of course, I have yet to watch my Farscape boxset...ummmmm Claudia Black as Aeryn Sun.

Funny how she and Ben Browder both ended up on Stargate.

I think there is a voluntary fan made series called "Prometheus" set in the early 25th century, available online but nothing official.

However to return to my original question, the two graphic novels, "Countdown" set between the Nemesis film and the recent "Star Trek" and "Nero" Explaining what happens to Nero during the 25 years he spends waiting for Spock prime to follow through the Black Hole are really worth looking at. There's no explanation in the film why Nero's ship looks so wierd. It's had Borg technology added. There's also a nod to the original film, "Star Trek The Motion Picture".

I got our local library to buy them.
