Poll
When you first saw that this wasnt going to be a re-release of StarFarers of Catan you:
Thought bah-humbug who needs another copy of Catan
Thought it looks shiny shiny must have now!
Thought I'll buy it when its real cheap later on
Thought I'll show them, I'll buy this AND think grumpy thoughts about it not being Starfarers of Catan
Thought this would look amazing as one of those 3-D special special editions
Thought so many expansions to come
Thought something entirely different

I agree. Great poll. With us geeks, there is almost always a "but" isn't there. Had you included an option:

"I will refuse to buy this one and design my own Star Trek-themed Starfarers of Catan game instead"

that is what I would pick.

And with that, I am already burying my head in my Star Trek Encyclopedia to create an Encounter card deck... and getting out the phone number for Paramount/CBS to request licensing rights.

Catan was already over-produced; but now, this just makes it no better than those "cash-in/sell-out" versions of Monopoly.

It does look shiney, though . .

My thoughts? It's a game for nerds who are even nerdier than the nerds that other nerds make fun of for being more nerdy than any nerd they ever met at a convention for the people who were voted most likely to be nerdier than 90% of nerdiest nerds who ever refused to admit to being nerds.

I wish it success, and to its demographic much fun, but since my particular nerd quotient bends the hell away from either Star Trek or Catan, I might just pass.

Bacon Ice Cream is great! There's a little ice cream shop around from me that makes it - it's candied bacon with maple ice cream. YUM!

I thought "Oh look, is that Star Trek? Is my perfect Star Trek game coming - Catan? CATAN? Dammit. Back into waiting."

I just want to clarify that there was initial fanboy spasms before I bah-humbugged this sucker out of my conscious.

Uhm, probably the same color as your obtuse tinted shades.

Or, in other words, "Ya got me. Oh, it hurts! Your razor sharp critique cuts deeply through my psyche, stripping away layers and years of carefully constructed self delusion, flaying my true self open for all to see like a fileted trout. Oh my lord, the revelation! I AM A NERD TOO! Have been all along... Wait, but, it all makes sense now! That's why I post here! That's why all those brightly colored boxes are in the closet! My life, it's all been a lie! All those teams, all the training, and running... just to hide... the fact... My God. MY GOD! NNOOOOOOooooOOoooooo...."

No options for "Why isn't this Starfarers?" other than "I'll buy this and think grumpy thoughts?" How about "I'll think grumpy thoughts because this isn't starfarers and refuse to buy it until it is!"

Your poll didn't have an option for:
"I'll buy it just for the plastic ships & throw the rest away"

Nope, there's a shop here in Atlanta that did the same thing. Pretty tasty.

But their Warm Brownie sundae with Salted Caramel ice cream is to die for.

The list of movies worse than the first Star Trek is pretty short.

Granted.

However, hmm, might Office Space have been less wonderful were it not for Superman III? Please discuss.

Elsewhere.

Follows: Saying a movie is better than the above list is saying very little. I think I'd rather watch Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter, again, than sit through the hyper excitement of the 23 minute illuminated gas cloud V-ger approach. God, I might even prefer an episode of Cupcake Wars over the breathless grandeur of the shuttle docking sequence.

It's a crass attempt to cash in on a beloved franchise by recycling a worn out game design. It's going to be sold at Target for crissakes. I think that says it all.
