Hi. I am not exactly new to Star Trek. Although to be honest, I have never been a fan of TOS. I was a fan of ST:TNG, though. But after several bad movies, IMHO, I stopped being a fan. I don't think I watched the last 2 or 3 movies of ST:TNG.

Anyway, I did not really think I would enjoy this movie. Mainly because it's based on TOS and I was expecting that it would be another prequel type movie like Star Wars 1-3. And even after seeing the trailer, I still did not feel like watching it. But then, someone said reboot and AU. And that got me interested. So I did watch the movie with my 17 yr old bro and mom the other. And we all had such a great time! It was very entertaining from start to finish. The actors portraying the familiar characters were all great. Which is another surprise. My mom knows about the old TOS and my bro does not know anything about Star Trek at all. He thought this was another ST:TNG movie so I had to give him a brief rundown of the Star Trek basics.

I have a feeling that this movie has made new fans from new generations and revitalised the interest on the franchise for people like me. I can't wait for the next installment.

That's good to hear! Glad you and your mom and brother enjoyed the movie - the more the merrier Welcome to TrekBBS!
