similar thing happened to my daughter, she is nine.

Her first exposure to Star Trek was 'Into Darkness'....did a theater night and we loved it !

We since then have nearly finished watching through Deep Space Nine on Netflix together

She wants to watch TNG next....because I showed her a Q and a Borg episode

I loved Into Darkness and cant wait for more JJ trek to come out!
That's mainly what I hear from the "anti-JJ Trek" crowd. It's not "set in the main universe," so fans get their panties in a wad over it.

^^^^This^^^ My 6 year old daughter and 9 year old son both loved both JJ Movies. I was about my 6 year olds age when I was watching TOS reruns on Saturday afternoons with my dad. They now will watch the Star Trek series on the Netflix when I fire them up. My son likes Enterprise, but eh, to each their own, LOL. Then again I like Voyager and people on the forums poo poo that one all the time. JJ re-invigorated a dated franchise for a new generation of kids and even adults who may not have liked the "touchy feely" Star Trek. And if it takes JJ altering some things or rehashing some orginal(but popular) material to keep Paramount's moneybags full so they keep Star Trek alive than all the better.

I will admit that I am not a fan of JJ Trek.
But Andrew Dice Clay,In "Ford Fairlane" was the worst movie ever.
I still owe the "Diceman" a punch in the face for stealing my money, and 110 minutes of my life in 1989.

However, I shouldn't judge JJ Trek too harshly, I loved TNG on TV, and the movies were meh.
You will learn that Delta Rising is the best expansion ever.YOU WILL LOVE IT.

I was born in 1992, I didn't grow up with ST (except for about 3 episodes of ENT) I only started watching after 09, bought myself the full collection all thanks to JJ. Into Darkness is still in my top 3 list of ST Films.
Delta Rising is the best ex... oh sod it, I just want my Jupiter and Typhoon

I would really like to see for Star Trek III , if they did do a remake on steroids, would be to do Star Trek Generations, but with a better ending!


PS: They MUST have a competent director, NOT JJ ... NOOOOOOOT JJ.
Hopefully I'll come back from my break; this break is fun; I play intellectual games.

I hope STO get's better ...

please explain to us why you are shouting this....but yet the two worlds largest science fiction intellectual properties have chosen him to represent their current cinematic endeavors.

do you feel Star Trek -and- Star Wars are so misguided that they -both- chose an incompetent producer? and if so...please clarify for us who aren't seeing the light.

JJ could have done a much,MUCH, better job. Made it action packed, but with more Trek.


BTW I am not shouting, I am emphasizing.
