>Well I watched it.

>Now I feel like the 3rd judge on Xfactor sat between Matthias and Sunshine because Im going to have to go with....... Sunshine!

>What a fab romp! I didnt watch it as a cheap flick and instead decided to watch it as if it had been made around the same time as TOS complete with 60's special effects, that actually made the effects really good. To compare it to a high budget modern movie just isnt fair.

>The acting was mostly very good, though some of the supporting cast could have done with a couple of workshops as most of them couldnt find the right expression. All accept the Mirror helmsman who displayed a range of emotions from fear to confusion to angry, so its a shame he was the vulcan.

>The limited sets were believable, the script could have been better considering how heavily it was relied upon due to the fairly static directing, but the actors worked hard to pull it off and pretty much managed it.

>Somehow they managed to cram it all in when it came to the doffing of caps to Trek what with the bad guys turning good at the nod of a head (literally), two universes, 1 space station and more ships than tribbles. Not to mention the epic space battles raging away while two beings had their God like punch up on the planet. Lots of good v evil all wrapped up in the high morals of Trek. And of course a nice little twist at the end to make everything all ok again.

>I think they missed a few jokes to be honest but it was a great tongue in cheek moment when they destroyed Vulcan. I cant fathom why the whole of Vulcan wasnt able to evacuate in the time it took that weapon to hit its target, it was hilarious. Loved Mirror Chekov's wig, for real, it suited him and there were some nice suprises in there too. Most notably for me J.G. Hertzler, what a treat! And a Tribble! I was hoping for a Tribble all the way through so I was well chuffed.

>Ill be watching it again as my son is going to love this, probably have to see it twice with him as Ill spend the first time pointing out a few familiar faces and enjoying his face, especially when he sees 'Neelix' minus wiskers and prosthetics.

>Suspension of disbelief was needed in droves to enjoy this, but then isnt it always in Trek? I for one am not a fan of low budget and was wary the length of this film may drag on, but quite the opposite as the hour and a half'ish went real fast. But if your going to compare it to Trek then your just going to miss out on all the good stuff in this film. Its not Trek, its a fine tribute to Trek and a little gem of a fun film. I could go on but suffice to say liked this much more than I thought I would.

>Did someone say theres to be a sequal? In the meantime I may check out some other Trek'ish films.

>Thanks guys! Especially Sunshine without your adament insitence this film deserved a better chance I probably wouldnt have watched it.

>Matthias, sorry, but with extra dots.......

No, I think you're more like a staggering Paula Abdul.

A what?


Hmm, she looks like an extra from V in that pic, just eaten a hamster.


"Let me see if Ive got this straight. You're risking the ship, the crew, and the mission on the assumptions that Helkara and Leishman are engineering geniuses, Tharp is a piloting savant, our transporter chief can work miracles, and the Breen are unwilling to sacrifice themselves in a kamikaze attack?" "Yup." "Damn I LOVE this job."

On a side not, I love Checkov's final comment in the wedding scene movie. It's just so funny and ironic it brings a smile to my face every time.

Truthfully, the Vulcan scenes are the BEST part of the film. JMO
