I did see the film and thought it was excellent, yet I can see your point of view.


I'm not the most experienced Trekkie by any stretch of the imagination, yet Star Trek seems to me to get the perfect balance between action and a good story. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it was Raules Davies that made a commment that if Star Trek was all guns it just wouldn't be good. I have to agree with him! JJ Abrams is long from killing Trek, but the beauty of Star Trek for me lies in the good story and dialogue, comedy with a sprinkle of action.


 In some ways, too much action can deceive someone who knows nothing about Star Trek into thinking Star Trek is just the same old cliche! I agree with you to an extent but still enjoyed the film. I repect your opininon entirely! As of now, I have a conflicted mind and do not know where my mind lies. I am sitting on a fence!

...So I read in Star Trek Magazine that Orci aknowledged that fans hated the damn brewery, and that eh would pass along the comment to JJ.


There's a dash a good news for the next movie! I'm just hoping that whoever directs it realizes that the brewery set was a horrible idea.


Wanted to get that out there...

I don't think he has killed or is killing the franchise at all.  The only thing I wish was clear was is this going to stay the new Trek universe or are they going to make it so that something happens in the end one of the sequels and we're back in the normal continuity?

That would be like giving away the end of a book while we're still on chapter four.


We'll all just have to wait to find out.


My guess is that they probably won't bring this universe back into the main timeline.

Its obviously a hot topic to keep popping up, if people dont want to re-engage with this argument then go to another post, dont write "End of discussion" like you own the damn site.


 


JJ has saved the business model that is 'Star Trek' but some people think he raped the integrity of the show by doing so (turned it into a teen movie with super duper effects). I must say I enjoyed the JJ film but I thought it wasnt the ST I enjoy (TNG/VOY/DS9). I must say that I fond it very hard to beieve that Star Fleet would put these young cadets in charge of their flag ship - that seems a bit "kiddy film" to me...

JJ Abrams' movie was great, but it just wasen't Star Trek.


He made kirk look like a total asshole, Spock's home planet perished along with his mother, Checkov's 17, (WTF) the enterprise is shown as being a relativley new ship, and the consoles have touch screens.


I read the new movie is supposed to take place in an alternate dimension,but still. that movie was cool, but it pissed me off.
