It was amazing. I agree. I recommend it to anyone who just wants to go to the movies and go on a great ride, regardless of whether they have any "trekkie" in them or are even at all familiar with the mythology.

saw it. liked it. a bit predictable in the plot (romulan wanting revenge blah blah blah) but still, good casting and moved along much quicker than earlier Star Trek movies. It would have preferred the other ship not be the size of a planet for some reason. seemed a bit much. ~npp

Okay...you're a geek, so you would understand...here's a site where you can turn yourself into a star trek character by uploading a photo. The address is http://www.trekyourself.com. Here's me as a Vulcan, http://www.trekyourself.com/?mId=30156080.3 (my face is a little bit crooked.)

Yeah!! And YES again. For all of you old school Star Trek fans who have been complaining about and shunning this movie, I give you a big ol' rasberrie----PPPHHHHTTTT!! Because I have been a fan since September of 1966, when I saw the first episode aired (Man Trap) at age 13, bought all the books, went to all the local conventions, did Star Trek fan art and illustrated fanzines back in the 70s, and even had dinner with Gene Roddenberry. So I'm a life-long, dyed-in-the-wool Trekker, and I say this movie totally rocks! Gene would have been proud. I had read that when Leonard Nimoy saw the finished movie, he had tears in his eyes at watching Karl Urban play Dr. McCoy, because Urban had nailed it as for being an homage to DeForrest Kelley. To me, this is one of the best of all the Trek movies, at least one of the top 2 or 3. I especially liked the character of Captain Pike, both in how his part was written, and the actor that played him. And in Chris Pine's story arc of a young James T. Kirk, we get to watch a warrior on his hero's journey.

Live long and prosper....Rick Pearson
