I care more about the fate of Bele And Lokai than I care about any of these imposters in this movie.
Kirk is the same adolescent idiot at the end of this movie as he is in the beginning of it. How can anyone contest this? He's a god damned moron.
The scene between Imposter spock and Imposter kirk in which kirk apparently provokes spock so easily is pathetic, and an insult to even average intelligences.
The fact that the writers ask you to suspend disbelief in the face of kirk being promoted so easily to the captaincy should, logically speaking, make you laugh at them. But instead you suck it up like it's candy. Because star trek never set any precedent that takes its command structure seriously, really?
Star trek used viable scientific principles based on relativity, quantum mechanics, string theory, holography, etc.
How can anyone in their right mind contest that that version of trek is far more scientifically defined than this one?
