I guess it would be too much to hope that the new version would come up with some plausible, non-stupid reason for the aliens to traverse all these light years to invade Earth? Eating people and stealing water doesn't cut it, any more than it did in the 80s.
I never got that. If they're that advanced, why do they need people for food and why our water? I'd think they could easily get what they needed.
Then again, I always wondered why the Kazon on Voyager always were scrounging for water when they had advanced ships and technology.
