Re: Star Trek (2009)

The best Star Trek made me want to live in that time, to be better. in a society that has to deal with bigger questions than that 'what alien are we running into this week'. Sure they ran into aliens but using a phase was always the last resort. While the 'reboot might be mindless fun its not Star Trek to me. It simply has some Trek material wrapped around an action movie that is more George Lucas thn Gene Rodenbury. There are no moral questions in this movie, there is no internal struggle. Having to convince Kirk to join Starfleet? Thats not my Kirk.

In this timeline TOS,TNG, DS9, and Voyager, that so many of us loved, will never occur. This 'reboot' isn't about exploring the galaxy but who they can shhot next. If that's not saying, 'screw you fans, we just want more money at Paramaount' then I don' know what is.

Star Trek was never about looking back. it was about looking to the future. How can we be better, work together, and encourage others to be better. The 'reboot' is just about who can blow up who first. This is Sci-Fi at its worst. Though Rick Berman made some missteps he always kept Rodenbury's perspective in mind. This reboot ignores everything Gene stood for.
