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.
