I thought the 2009 Star Trek was pretty good, if they were going to revive the series, if thy wanted to have any kind of creativity, they had to find a way to throw out the history book, otherwise the high temple priests of almighty Trek would be crucifying every new story for not sticking to Star Trek dogma.
What I did not like were the cheap sets, the moment you left the bridge or the transporter room, it was like you were suddenly in Willy Wonka's Chocolate factory, big plastic tubes with water running through it, Communications in the middle of what looks like a brewery, steel girders everywhere, spaces partitioned of with plastic drapes and if you look hard enough you might see cinderblock walls in the background.
I mean if they want it to look like the inside of a naval vessel then use the inside of a naval vessel, there are enough of them around. Don't shoot an engineering scene inside of an abandoned high school and expect anyone to think it's not what it looks like.

Silliness:

Quark being surgically altered to become a female.

That was so bad it was unwatchable. I don't mean the crossdressing, which was comical at first. But as the episode dragged on....

The episode was in TV yesterday. Voy "Threshold". I remembered it as a bad episode and wow it's really a bad one.
