The box office numbers don't lie.

Star Trek was a success.

Complaining about this or that is counterproductive to Trek evolution.

I'm already leery of this idea to placate traditional trek fans.

In my opinion they are what is wrong with the Star Trek franchise.

but it wasn't even a good plot for a movie

Once you see it. Report back. Until then it's a dead end conversation.

I haven't seen the film yet :cry:

You have a unique perspective then.

From what you know of it, what's your opinion of XI?

Also, where are you coming from Trek-wise? Did you like TOS?

seriously? ¿why would someone who hasn't seen the film have a unique perspective on it being good or not?

There were 100's of people on this message who felt they had a "unique perspective" on whether the film was good or not months before it ever came out.

This is just par for the course.

Star Trek was a great movie. I loved it and it is making Star Trek popular again.

I'm interested in how the DVD sales will do. My prediction is that they will do poorly. People went for a quick action flick - not a quality movie. Now they'll be bored with it and move on to the next flick.

If the dvd sales are successful will it prove your theory wrong or will you continue to believe about an attention deficit audience? If you did not like the movie this is acceptable but you are generalizing about the fan base in all your posts.

Actually, the film has been doing very well in pre-sales (constantly in the top 10 or even top 5 on Amazon U.S.) and seemingly doing well on iTunes pre-orders as well.
