A political terrorist? So much for the great 'escapism' that is Star Trek!
That's pretty lame. Revenge, terrorists, etc. It's like a skipping record with this shit.
I rewatched Trek 09 last night and enjoyed it but thought to myself... I wish there was something really different happening this time besides someone bent on revenge, etc. Who knows? Once the full 9 minutes have been previewed maybe it'll be clear what's happening.
Star Trek is often about whats happening in the real world, only with the "serial numbers" filed off. Escapism wasn't really its goal.
