Re: The Official STAR TREK Grading & Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]

[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]Gotta admit, I left the theatre pretty disappointed that the movie gutted everything I knew about Star Trek. After reading a few of these posts, however, I think I've progressed through all the stages of grief and have achieved some level of acceptance. The movie isn't chapter 11 of an ongoing story; it's chapter 1 of a new story, and that's probably a good thing. [/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]Unfortunately, the story isn't particularly good thus far. Underneath the fantastic graphics and interesting moments (the scene with the Orion coed is going to make me tingle for years) is a pretty weak plot that is definitely not up to Star Trek standards. I suppose that's forgivable in this instance, as the purpose of the movie was to introduce the new cast and storyline, but another movie like this will test my loyalty to the Federation.[/SIZE][/FONT]
