I'll see it soon. By the way, I a big fan of the original series. Seen a few of the copy cats and that's enough. I don't care for the iterations.

Saw it last night and enjoyed it. I tend to enjoy the "back story" iterations (Indiana Jones with Sean Connery, Batman Begins, Terminator 2, etc) and do not like movies without context unless its believable. I'm no Trekkie and do not have the love for the original series as most seem to, but I do like the detail and depth of the series and feel this movie adds to it. While you need to understand a bit of the show's history, this movie is excellent for those not deeply into the genre. Trekkies will probably pick this film to pieces, but its not really for them. Go see it.

It was a good movie, but it doesn't hold a candle to the original 6.
Which one of the originals do you consider better than mediocre?

Now we will have to insert a Ceti eel into you ear canal or shove a Centurian slug down your throat. Then you will reveal your true feelings.

I'd rather be subjected to poison gas then have to sit through ANY Star Trek movie.

You should be happy to learn that the newest Star Trek movie contains scenes with graphic violence approaching the brutality shown on '24.' The tedious and annoying "Peace & Tolerance 101 for Dummies" lectures, which are a part of all previous Star Trek ventures, are notably absent from this movie.
