But, I suppose, if you're expecting something like TNG, the new movie might come as something as a shock. As I've said before, the reboot added a bit of a rock-n-roll vibe to a franchise that was starting to feel like chamber music . . .
I like that analogy. I grew up with reruns of TOS and the movies on TV at the same time TNG. But even I was too young to watch religiously when it first was on. I probably see Trek just a little more from a TNG pov. But my enjoyment of the new movie has grown since it can out, remembering what Star Trek really started out as.
