I haven't read the first 500 pages of this thread, but even in the last 100, I have read more comments along the lines of, "If you're a real Trekkie, you'll only watch this once, if at all" or, "Real Star Trek fans should hate this!" or ,"If you're a fan of this, you're a traitor!" than I ever really want to. These comments are just as bad and rediculous as the Canon Nazi comments that come from the other side. Makers of both comments need to get over themselves.
I am a Trekkie. I have watched and loved Star Trek for literally as long as I can remember. And I enjoyed this movie. Deal with it.
My love for the film isn't exactly subtle... but I'll second this.
My dads seeing the movie tonight and I'm looking forward to his reaction. As a bonus someone bought tickets for me this weekend so we could watch it together - this is someone who had no interest in Star Trek and since she saw the 'Two steps from hell' ad she's watched all the best of my TOS, DS9, movies and TNG.
Good film + new interest = Awesome. For me at least.
