I'm kinda worried... It's because of this remark by a reviewer on Rotten Tomatoes:
This isnít the franchise defining Ďmiddleí picture that this reviewer was hoping it to be. Itís not the Empire Strikes Back of an Abrams trilogy; and consequently it didnít quite hit the emotional crescendo of that kind of film.
I was actually hoping STID would have been ST's equivalent of TESB... Still looking foreward to it though and it is just one review of course....
To hell with Star Wars (gasp!), what I'd really like to know is if it fits the Even Numbered Trek Movie Theory.
