Enterprise Bridge

Back from vacation and ready to fuck with you

Warren Ellis just returned from a vacation in the countryside with the following bad news:
I note with amusement that JJ Abrams has been hired to co-write, produce and direct an eleventh STAR TREK movie, focussing on Young Kirk And Spock. I had lunch with Joe Straczynski a couple of summers ago, just after he'd been to Paramount pitching something similar -- Ultimate Star Trek, if you like.

For as good a reputation Lost and Alias have, let me remind you of Armageddon and Taking Care of Business.
I fully expect this to be as unfaithful to the previous works as Enterprise was. Indeed, I fully expect to see Kirk and Spock, as academy classmates, fighting the Borg in the holodeck. Where they run into Khan. And the Kazon.

Enterprise Bridge

<voice=nelson> Ha ha!

Chase Harper to gay Poway HS students: "God hates you!"
Ninth Circuit to Chase Harper: "Suck it."

This isn't over, yet. This particular appeal was just over the trial judge refusing to issue a TRO forbidding the district from enforcing its dress code. But the Ninth Circuit does not often uphold restrictions on speech, so when it does, you should take that as a warning. In a year's time, I fully expect "Suck it again" to be handed down from San Francisco. By then, Chase will be a college freshman.
