    .... if that's the case, how come I can still remember the original Star Trek TV series episodes?

    All joking aside... I thought it was a great movie, and well done.

    Because you stowed away on Spock's ship when he wormholed back, silly! Forget already?

    Janeway! Too easy!! (Yes, I'm a geek... Computer geek by trade...)

    And, yes, I LOVED the new movie. I saw it once at a 'normal' theater and once at an IMAX and once at my home. *whistles innocently*

    I did not like it. Characters were great except for Scotty. To me the story line was off as they tried to do too much too fast. Hated the Mining ship it reminded me of Star Wars.
    Why do these ships have so much OPEN space with walk paths and no rails?
    Why send three people including the captain to save anything. Of course you would normally send a platoon of your delta Marine team.
    Spock with a women, this should only happen every ten years or so.

    So what is my pick for an accurate Space movie…… Aliens 2 & Preditor 1 Greatness

    To each his own... And 'pon far' is every seven years, but that is only mating, not companionship, assuming any of this was REAL and mattered... LOL

    Overall I liked the movie....Pike was well cast! I think they should have left Spock as in TOS...just younger....The beginning and end musical score should have been a close variant of the original....this was a weakness imho

    Talking with friends it was clearly pointed out to me that you must understand that this is a different reality due to the time line change. Thus relationships and personalities would be slightly different from the original. The entire idea makes my head hurt.

    Yes..I understand your point...it's just that I remember all the way back to the pilot episode The Cage...and have seen every episode of each series....so I have to try to reconcile that universe with altered time lines...and yes it produces headaches! LOL

    I don't think I can rightly answer that... I love so many movies, many of which are sci-fi. I will say that I think this is my favorite Trek movie, though...

    Yeah, that's the idea. That's how they get around a lot of the canon so that they can have some fresh new story lines.

    I think they kept it true enough to the original to make the old schoolers (like me) happy but gave it enough newness to bring in the younger groups and allow for more stories without all the mess that 40 years of canon can cause when trying to right a creative story.

    My nine year old daughter LOVED it, too. Walking out of the theater she turns to me and says, "Daddy, I LOVED that movie! I can't wait for them to make another one!" LOL

    I watched some of the really early stuff from them but I haven't kept up with it. I may have to revisit it.

    You realize that the Cage episode wont happen?

    Timeline-wise, it actually didn't happen. The Cage was set before Kirk assumed command, and by the time the movie ended Kirk was already supposed to be in command ("You are not the Captain?"), and so the events of The Cage would have already taken place if they were going to happen. Since the Enterprise wasn't launched until later and Pike ended up getting bumped to desk jockey Admiral before he got a chance to visit Talos IV with the ship and fall in love with the mutated girl and all that jazz.

    Of course, Star Trek: Enterprise is still there, so we can take comfort that at least ~75 hours of Star Trek survived the film intact.

    Yup, the writers worked in references of some variety from every series. There was even a tribble in there...

    I know. I thought it was great. There's a comic book series / graphic novel that bridges the current time line (post TNG era) to the new movie as well. It was a nice read.
