The Jar Jar theory is darn good. Lucas himself is recorded as saying Jar Jar is the key all of Star Wars.

I believe it.

Star Trek Beyond is going to be ignoring the events of Into Darkness (by which they mean interstellar beaming and Khan's magic blood, which is for the best).

Alas, it's not ignoring enough of it.  IMO they should completely discard Abrams-Trek and focus on something derived from TNG.

Abrams is actually not involved. He's just going to do Star Wars now (though Roberto Orci is still producing Trek). While Justin Lin, the new director has said that he wants to honor what Abrams did, he also wants to leave his own mark. So, there's a possibility of Beyond being more of a return to form (though I'm skeptical based on the trailer-and the fact that it's being directed by the guy who gave us three Fast & the Furious movies). Maybe Lin will surprise us yet.

I agree, though, that I would prefer something set in the old universe (they can keep the destruction of Romulus, it helps distinguish them more from the Klingons imo). Old school Star Trek of course has the advantage of old actors still being able to play the parts a lot better than Star Wars alums can theirs due to the relative sedentarism of Trek.

I did see the new SW film, and it was quite good; a world apart from Abram's deadful ST films.  In fact, it was the first time I've heard people crying aloud in the cinema, during an SF film at least.

It's either legit, or for free. Can't have both. Unless you have a Trekkie friend that owns the DVDs and is willing to watch long-term with you - but if you did, you'd know it.

You might do a free trial of Netflix, if they offer a free trial.

This might make you what the Jews call a "schnorrer," that is to say, someone who might eat lunch by taking free samples at Costco, but it is legal.

They are free to watch on your national TV (also, entirely dependent on their programming). DVDs and on-demand TV cost. Not a fortune, but they do cost.

If your local library has DVDs to borrow, you could have a chance. Star Trek is popular everywhere.

I have not seen the movie yet but just finished the book.  It is a good story albeit with a lot of rehash.
