I do not know what is so good about it. it is true a new movie is cool, but it is far from the glory of the older ST films. And also we haven't seen series for quite a long time.
People are spoiled nowadays. I remember when we got 12 comics and a few novels a year and a movie every two to three years.
This year I get a movie, a video game, TNG in HD, some comics and some novels.
I just enjoy whatever I can.
I agree with you. Perhaps, it is just the optimist in me. No Trek = bad; Trek in various forms = good.
I discovered Star Trek in the first run of The Animated Series
. Later, The Original Series
was available during syndication. New Trek?! WTF was that back then? It was a verrrrry long dry spell before TMP came along. It was even longer until TNG popped up! Very spoiled, indeed.
I may be a pessimist, but I think we've seen our last Star Trek TV series.
But I have a feeling we'll see something animated in the next couple of years.
If only, if only...
