I enjoyed the hell out of it....so I took it for what it was: a rollicking, kick in the ass, good time at the movies, with a little Trek
provenance thrown in, for good measure.
I'm old (and wise) enough to realize it can't be all things to all fans -- especially to a lot of fanboys who tend to lend it a credence of reality,
and try to justify it's logical place in Trekdom, as if any of this were somehow real
, and not science fiction
, for Christ's sake.
It is what it is, and stands on it's own.
