    Imho, Chris Pine did a wonderful portrayel of “a” Starfleet captain, but not “the” Kirk. What irked me of the JJ movies (among a few other things) was the blatant dismissal of the many-many crewmen JJ-Kirk lost but it was alright as long as his core-crew survived. Somehow I never got that feeling from TOS-Kirk (despite the legions of TOS Redshirts that bit the dust).
    Elijah, great interview with JG Hertzler, the guy has such ‘gravitas’ with just his voice.
    Great show everyone, my thanks.

    I will try to answer your CQ as best I can.

    In the prime universe, Kirk was always portrayed as a serious, deliberate person who knew exactly what he was doing and what the consequences of his actions would be. It is a common misconception that he was an idiot or clueless. Look at his actions in TOS episodes such as space seed, balance of terror and movies such as TWOK and TUC

    Until Simon Pegg came along to pen Beyond, JJ’s vision of kirk was a young, laddish buffoon who had no real idea what he was doing and made stupid mistakes. I think Pegg tried really hard to correct that in Beyond – giving him some real, grown up emotive responses and logical action, while maintaining the “fun” factor the previous two films introduced.

    Although I much prefer Pegg’s vision of Kirk, I still think it is a long, long way off.

    Wonderful show everyone.

    As for Pine, i agree with Beau, the mannerisms are Shatner, but the whole is not equal to the sum of its parts with pine.

    FIRST OF ALL!

    WHY NO SHOW NEXT WEEK! Whats so important?

    CBS comments really grind my gears. Buffy, BSG and so many others have come before and done SCI-FI right. Its complete bullsh**.

    As for the 6 COMMAND Assault Cruiser – Vizier Class, its been really hard to get my hands on. My local store in Australia can ONLY get wave 15 and no other stores in my city of Canberra. I have tried online but all Australian sells never got it OR they only got 4 or 5 in total. I think its something I will never get. :'(

    I enjoyed the KT Universe films and at times, I thought Kirk was acting sort of buffoonish. I do agree that KT Kirk was more of a Han Solo-style character.

    Secondly, the CBS’ comments were more about CBS, ABC, NBC, and Fox channels are free. You guys were talking about cable network shows, where it is a paid service. I personally don’t see boobs and blood coming to Trek. I see more violent content coming.

    Compare Prime Kirk and JJ’verse Kirk is to compare Shinzon with Cpt. Picard.

    They both are the same person but they have different upbringing so they have become total different individuals.

    JJ’verse grow up with the support of a father, while Shinzon was born and raised in a labor camp with Romulan guards who beat you every day.

    JJ’s Kirk is ridiculous. He’s the angsty teen version of Kirk. It’s not even appropriate to say he’s a parody, because parody requires intention. JJ’s Kirk is incompetent writing.
