And could that list possibly presage anything for the Star Wars sequels? Only if you think rationally.

Yes. I saw it elsewhere that by canon, Kirk was the youngest captain in Starfleet history... after 14 years.

It all seems to boil down to some kind of hyper-compression of time for the modern audience. The Enterprise getting to another world in a few days isn't exhilarating enough; Vulcan is now ten warp minutes away. The "transwarp beaming" is already what Roddenberry worked so hard to keep transporting from becoming in the original, a magic get-outta-jail gambit.

Frankly, if they can transport anywhere in the near galaxy, what's the point of starships? I predict transwarp beaming will either get 'broken' before installment 3, or become the downfall of the series.


Someone took your idea and ran with it: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4N15J4ibej ... N15J4ibej8
