Nexus: A Star Trek tv movie is, I’m informed, a big deal. What’s more, for me personally, this is a big deal. Star Trek is my favourite TV show, and I have a weakness for the best available of the franchise. I’ve probably made a total of two hours of Star Trek watchable since Deep Space Nine’s cancellation and subsequent rebrand. As of this moment, there is one movie that I’ve seen but don’t recall having seen entirely: First Contact.
Now, Star Trek fanfiction writers (I’m not one), be warned, this article isn’t a review. Like First Contact, this article will be spoilerific. I’m also using the Star Trek: The Next Generation connection rather than original-cast, because I’m a greedy, lazy bastard.
This year I found a plan to watch all the Star Trek films on Netflix. My delight at seeing the whole series in a massive, user-friendly, catalogue-grabbing format was tempered by an impotent rage at the first part of the series, First Contact. I know, I know, it’s supposed to be the sixth, not first, film. I even know that Riker doesn’t look like Star Trek has spruced his appearance in Beyond. I don’t care. I’m petty.
Today, after a lengthy period of desultory TV watching, I decided to reach back to when my enthusiasm for a new Netflix addition outweighed my casual aversion to time-wasting. I’m a big mystery fan, I’ve reviewed a ton of Sherlock Holmes adaptations, and part of the ‘why not’ theory is that television is fast-moving and you can usually skim a series with relative ease.

Many key innovations used in this new version of VMware Workstation Pro, such as GPU virtualization, require that the guest operating systems support the new virtual graphics infrastructure.
You don’t need to use VMware. You can use VirtualBox.
Oracle VM VirtualBox is the only truly open source solution to
virtualize a complete computer system. You can install an operating
system, manage its resources, access its files, configure its network,
play any games, or do any other task for which a virtual machine is
designed, as if it were a real computer.
As an open source cross platform virtualization product, VirtualBox is
free for both commercial and non-commercial use. Commercial use of
VirtualBox includes source code release under GNU General Public
License 2.0. VirtualBox is available for Windows, Linux, and Solaris
and supports a wide range of guest operating systems including
Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Linux 2.4, 2.6, 2.4.11 and 2.6
and Solaris x86, x64 and SPARC.
And using the Ubuntu as a guest Operating System is rather simple if you have some experience. I won’t go into the details. Just select the ISO and install it normally.
The VirtualBox website’s download section has a Windows 7 image. This is what I used to test the system in VirtualBox. And for testing, it worked well. I cannot say much about the Linux versions. I used Ubuntu 11.04, Ubuntu 11.10 and Ubuntu 12.04 as guest Operating Systems.
VMWare is a business product that costs money. VirtualBox is an open source alternative that is free of charge, which sometimes looks a bit like VMWare. Both support most of the same features as VMware Workstation. The advantage of VirtualBox is that it is much simpler to use.
So, if you are a Free as in Freedom user, or a business user, or if you just want to play with the free version of VMWare, then I would definitely recommend you to use VMWare. (Note, that while the free version of VMWare Workstation is very limited, VirtualBox is free for all.)
