I was waiting for this. I would have preferred it if Kirk could have made it into the last movie. I really, really wanted J.J. Abrams to figure out a way to put him in the film - in a flashback scene with Spock - I don't know, whatever. At any rate, that was then. Now, I just want a strong character driven story, letting our cast of seven grow - on their own - especially the triumvirate.
