  1. Why don’t the filmmakers just admit it’s a reboot?

    Granted, it won’t make all of Trek obsolete and the original TV series and films will still be available on home video, but why even pretend that this is an homage to TOS rather than a Battlestar Galactica-style revision?

    That’s the biggest complaint older fans have.

    Sure, it could be a good film, but it still feels like a backhanded slap in the face, too.

    Chris Pine is no Bill Shatner, and the only guy that I feel remotely comfortable with so far is Karl Urban!

    I know a bunch of people are Abrams’ lovers but frankly I never saw the guy’s appeal.

    This is more of that Gen-X, emo, Opie-style TV stuff that I just don’t care for.

    This could just as easily end up being “The Phantom Menace” of the Trek series as it could be a good film. Cautious optimism and lowered expectations are the only safe way to view this…

  2. I’ve read a couple interviews with Abrams and Pine. Everything in this movie is referenced legacy Star Trek shows and movies. It is not a reboot, except for obvious updating if sets and so on.

    I think it looks awesome. It’s the kind of stuff I wanted to see since I was a kid in ST but the effects weren’t there, nor the imaginations of the writers.
