Star Trek Mini-Review

Just came back from it.

First, I hate "alternate timeline" stuff with a passion. If you hate it as much as I do, you might have some difficulty suspending belief.

That being said, this is about the best Star Trek movie I've seen. Not as good as Khan, but very, very impressive. There were a ton of little callbacks for fans, there were new relationships brought up, and a green space lady. It was quintessential Star Trek without...quite being Star Trek.

My only problem is now this: Since we're in an alternate timeline now, does that now invalidate The Next Generation? Deep Space Nine? Voyager? (Maybe we should invalidate Voyager.) I'm not sure I'm crazy about the implications of this new series, but as long as they don't harp on that, I'll be fine.

  1. this new Star Trek is so much fun, especially after what a letdown Wolverine ended up being; the new Capt. Kirk is a lot more more believable as a leader-type than William Shatner

  2. I totally agree. He has that awesome swagger. I love when he's eating the apple during the Kobayashi Maru.

    My god, I'm a dork.
