At one point I was thinking "Oh look, John Harrison is crashing a ship into San Fransisco, that's nice". There was no weight or importance to that. It didn't feel like anything meaningful. I think the trailer shouldn't have spoiled that scene...
people should really not be calling him Harrison it s KHAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Star Trek Online : Delta Rising - not the best but it's not that bad STOP with the pitch forks as they come out every season or update it's boring seeing it on every page, thread and all mediums out there. .

At the end of the day, the IP making cash is what will keep things like STO and future Trek productions AWAY from the back burner of Hollywood, or even the trash bin.

Crazy talk, I know...

Thanks dude, for spoiling it for people who genuinely didn't know that and wanted to wait and see the movie.

Yeah, but the whole Khan thing is lost on people who didn't watch TOS to begin with, since no real mention is made of him during either film. Only vague hints, it's expected that you already know.

This review pretty much mirrors my reaction to the film, both in what he didn't like about it, and in what he did like about it:

Anything with Karl Urban's version of Bones gets my vote

And it makes for a pretty interesting spin on Star Trek when the TNG movies flopped so badly at trying to be the same thing.

So they can do whatever they want on the big screen, but when it comes time for the small screen again I sure hope they remember that an action packed ST tv show is not going to repeat the big screen movie success. TV viewers and movie goers are two different things. People expect story on the tv screen, to watch a show for years, and just about anything goes for the big screen because it's only for a hour and half or so for 10 bucks. I truly hope the so called experts understand this and that at least one of those experts are in the CBS crowd, because I'll be damned if I've waited for who knows how long for my next ST show only to have action packed dim whitted crap shoved in my face because the masses paid to see Action Trek at the theater.
I love this sideways slam of people enjoying the new Trek movies and implying that fans that want it "TV style" are a more intelligent audience than "the mass of movie goers."


TV audience is smarter and demands story you say? The Kardasians, American Idol, CSI: Whatever, Jersey Shore, How I Met Your Mother, Glee, Whitney, Two and a Half Men, American Horror Story, Duck Dynasty and many others would like a word with you. (And those were just shooting from the hip)

Because the new films don't give two hour lectures with made up technobabble and beat you to death with a 'moral question' does not mean those who enjoy it are less intelligent than those who don't. It's just not your flavor. You are not smarter for having a differing opinion.

Such an attitude is not in the Star Trek spirit, in my opinion. You must not be a 'real Trek fan' (C wut I did thar?)
