I didn't like Star Trek 2009 at first and I wasn't sure whether I wanted to see "Into Darkness" at all, but it was a positive surprise. It was not just some other action film, but it was Star Trek again. And now I can even watch Star Trek 2009 without getting annoyed all the time because I know it gets better. Though I am still angry with them for destroying that whole wonderful timeline and most of the time pretend it didn't happen (which works quite well, because it's Star Trek, it didn't happen)

Into Darkness gets a slight edge. Major props to JJ Abrams for revitalizing the franchise

>I think the thing fans can help themselves by remembering or imagining is that the movies are really depictions of the most frantic and action-oriented adventures that the crew has. Obviously there are other adventures that happen in between that are more based on exploration and scientific discovery...but the movies depict the more grand-scale adventures.

What did you think of the Nibiru stuff at the beginning of Into Darkness?  I thought it did a good job of suggesting what you are suggesting, that the movie characters are engaged in a variety of activities including those closer to traditional Star Trek exploration, but we don't see it all.  I felt like the opening of Into Darkness on Nibiru could have worked as the conclusion to a Star Trek television episode and could imagine what kind of episode it would be, but for the purposes of a movie, I think the writers were wise not to focus on something like Nibiru, but just use a bit of it to frame and set up a more cinematic adventure--best of both worlds, for me.

im with you 100%. I thought it was a great little sequence that gave the impression that the ship was out on exploration and discovery missions.
