Star Trek-yes or no?

I thought to myself- how could they reinvent Star Trek AGAIN? How could "they" change who played Kirk? And Spock? Is nothing sacred in the world?

So, going to the new Star Trek movie was a big question mark- how where "they" going to pull it off?

And I LOVED it. Lt. Uhuru, unbeknownst to the rest of us, had a "thing" for Spock. And Spock let his human side hang out to show how much he hated Kirk. But James T. Kirk- with that big chip on his shoulder-was too funny! Bones was a scat- the actor portraying him "borrowed" a few of the original's best lines- with great success. Scotty made me laugh. Even Sulu and Checkov, while not quite what I had expected, had their moments. And it worked- the whole package of new faces/old names, an original character with the new updated version, and the age old quest involving bad guy with a grudge needing to be overcome by the shiny bright good guys.
Yeah, I loved it.
Star Trek lives!

Star Trek is a big NO for me. I'm not at all interested in seeing the movie. Chris is going to end up going with a friend.

I haven't seen any of the movies, but I think I've seen all the TV episodes multiple times. This one sounds good, though. I'll have DD put it on her netflix list. I'm patient enough to wait for it.

I loved it too! The kids took me on mother's Day and then I turned around and took them the following Thursday.

Love McCoy!

I liked it, I just had to take my mind out of the context of the Crew we knew.
