what do you mean you are sure it was from the future.

the jellyfish was prime spock's ship and it was noted to be very advanced even for its time.
I'm sorry, I wasn't very clear. I was referring to the phase rifle that Kirk used to sabotage the drill after they'd lost the charges.

wow! would you believe that you're the only person I know who finds that opening Kelvin scene bad? seriously, everyone I know loved it. it's one of the best scenes in the movie, IMO.

amazing how subjective art is, truly.
It certainly never ceases to amaze me.

Seriously though, if I may ask, what did you like about it?

For me, it would have been ok had they simply left out the whole thing with the birth going on at the same time as the attack and Kirk's parents talking, choosing a name, picking a kindergarten (just kidding ), etc. That just seemed incredibly contrived and (I can't think of a better word right now) cheesy to me. And, as I mentioned, all of my friends felt exactly the same way.
