I roll my eyes with disbelief at this one! Publicity material is starting to filter through in preparation for the release of the new Star Trek movie: “Into Darkness”. The teaser trailer finally confirms everything I have been saying about the current state of the franchise that continues to “boldly go”…
Those of you who follow my blogs will know that I have been a lifelong ‘trekker’. A few months back, I posted a three part article which addressed the journey of this TV and Hollywood behemoth. Although I have no doubt that there have been many occasions when certain individuals behind the typewriters and keyboards of Trek have attempted to convey something quite profound and revealing to the viewing public, I also know that the franchise is now firmly in the hands of those who care nothing for a more enlightened world.
You could argue that this is simply a product of the current modus operandi of the industry – an unstoppable machine that churns out mass distraction and the mantras of social engineering archetypes and narrow minded perceptual management.
So it is with a great sense of disappointment that I believe my suspicions have been confirmed. Those who currently steer the franchise have firmly nailed their colours to the mast, as witnessed in the new teaser trailer and poster artwork. With blatant allusions to 9/11 (see the poster!), the promotion of catastrophism, undercurrents of returning “false messiahs” wreaking havoc and some trailer narration talking about how the world is an illusion designed to keep us all happy… well, you know that they are just rubbing our faces in the proverbial.
The truly sad thing is that many folk (including, I suspect, some Trek fans) just won’t have a clue. RIP Trek… the last nail in the coffin.
