I will use my thoughts of new movie to try an explain what I feel a lot of old fans are thinking I just saw ST:ITD and the movie was ok but I hate to say it, it wasn't good. it's just more of the same stuff that we get shoveled our way every year by Hollywood. While Into Darkness was an enjoyable thrill ride there's just enough wrong with it for me to be glad that Abrams may be moving on two Star Wars or very sorry.
I could go on like a Fanboy about the things that irritate me and are utterly ignored by writers some that really make no logical sense but since I am a fan I will only list 4
1.) Transwarp Beaming please for the love of God get rid of this beaming across the galaxy BS who the hell needs a Starship when you can just beam on over
2.) No sense of Actual time passing at all even if it's just simulated or even remotely speed up. We warp from Quo'Nos to Earth in seconds just no...
3.) Why did they redesign the Klingons the new ones look like some Dessert thugs with the Piercings doesn't make sense also would not have been affected by Time Travel
4.) The promoting and demoting of anyone at random I mean common....
I think Star Trek needs some fresh blood again, I liked how we allude to the five year missions but I just felt that the heart of Star Trek was taken away and replaced with insert any Generic Action Movie here. The cast I love the idea of the reboot I love. While 2009 had a few plot holes I felt it was a stronger story and the whole time travel alternate reality thing can explain it away. I loved the first sequence of the movie it felt like I was watching some fun Star Trek Again, the morality of everything and Kirk changing his mind about the orders was very well done as well.
What i miss is the heart of Start Trek and the larger ramifications. Star Trek 6 we have politics, betrayal, friendship, action and in the end a new beginning. It was really something to see. I just hope that being out on this 5 year mission while give us something more than just a 2.5 hour action movie that can almost be done with "insert character name here" and not Kirk Spock, McCoy and the crew of the U.S.S Enterprise 1701.
I am pretty sure I could come up with a better story than this one in 5 minutes. In fact I will write a few plot points of one down. Based on the TOS Episode Arena more commonly known as the one with the Gorn
1.) Enterprise receives a distress signal and arrives on a decimated colony, the citizens that survive don't know why they were attacked.
2.) During the investigation the Enterprise and the planet are attacked by an unknown race the Gorn with Captain Kirk being taken prisoner
3.) The Gorn Captain challenges Kirk to a fight in an Arena, During the fight Kirk tries to better Understand the Gorn and why they attacked the Colony taken a cue from Into Darkness enter section 31
4.) After a short battle the Enterprise recovers Kirk who then sues to make a temporary alliance with the Gorn
5.) The Enterprise and the Gorn go after a rogue element of Starfleet Section 31 that is taken preventative action against a potentially hostile race with their dreadnought (Enter U.S.S Vengeance)
6.) Enterprise saves the day while forging a new alliance for the United Federation of Planets.
I know I pulled two elements from the new movie but heck this one seems a lot more like Star Trek with a lot more character to me. Anyhow let's hope the 3rd one finally gets it right I could excuse the first one as a new beginning but not the second....
