Re: Do you think Star Trek needed a reboot?

From my perspective, as I mentioned, it just seemed like a generic summer blockbuster that had a Star Trek veneer applied to it. It didn't have the kinds of things I expect from Trek. It wasn't a smart film. It was just lots of violence and action. I know there is plenty of violence and action in all of Trek but to me, Abrams' film seemed like it was nothing but.

Once again, that's just how I see it. I'm hardly an old curmudgeon who saw TOS firsthand. I was just over 11 years old when Voyager ended so really. The film just doesn't seem right to me.
Did you fall asleep when they explored the dual nature of Spock's human and vulcan sides as well as Kirk going through the hero's journey?
