# 1 JJ Trek II Core Audience

I gave my DVD of ST: 90210 to a coworker so he could see it without spending his own money on it.

His 15 year old daughter absolutely loved it.

Just saying....



Edit: I repent of the above statement. No more stones! *whack* I surrender!

Porthos is not amused.

Been a fan of Trek since I first saw it in reruns in 1975. Liked TOS, most of the TOS movies, TNG and loved DS9. Didn't care for much of Voyager, found the TNG movies to be mostly crap, and couldn't stand Enterprise at all. I enjoyed the 2009 Star Trek movie plus Into Darkness.

Been watching Star Trek first run since 1969.

Thought the first four TOS feature films were good. never really cared for Star Trek V or VI. Of the TNG feature films, the only one remotely watchable is "First Contact". The rest of the TNG films come across like lackluster TNG TV episodes.

My ranking of Star trek series (Best to Worst):

1) TOS
2) ENT
3) DS9
4) TAS
5) TNG
.

6)VOY (Actually stopped watching after the episode, "The 37's" - just couldn't take Bergma Trek 24th century era any longer.)

As for "ST2009" and "ST: Into Darkness":

LOVED BOTH a lot.

Why? They really take Star Trek back to the days it was a better show (before GR retconned it for TNG.) They had some actual adventure, instead of constant briefing room sequences where they spout particle of the week technobabble; or the main Captain character drones on about some politically correct issue (and usually without fail, the 'Federation Way' is always (99 times out of a 100) shown to be the 'correct' way. - Bleh!

Aside from the fact that Into Darkness completely destroyed Starfleet and too many scenes that require mind bleach, it was a good movie. Did they really need to have Spock scream Khaaan! or any of the other role reversed scenes from Wrath of Khan? Also introducing magic blood that can heal any injury and a universal teleporter completely destroys and future Star Trek movie in that universe. Why does Starfleet need starships when they can just teleport an away team to wherever they want? Also there is no sense of desperation when they can just heal someone with magic blood. Sure they will ignore those two things in future movies, but doing so is a mark against the JJ Trek Franchise.

Enterprise was a terrible series.

But Captain Archer was the bombest captain you will ever meet.

Well if it wasn't for magic blood, McCoy would've found a cure. He finds cures for everything. Almost as bad as Crusher, Bashir, and the EMH. I didn't put Phlox in there, because Phlox has admitted to not being able to cure someone.

I liked Star Trek: Insurrection when I was 15. That doesn't make it an awesome movie. It makes me a dumb kid who didn't know what quality cinema was until I was old enough to broaden my horizons and expose myself to many more movies.

Also that I was a dumb kid who didn't realize that every Star Trek movie was bad. We were all teenagers at some point and all of us were dumb at that age.

I'll just leave this here.
