You know, Trek was old and tired. Trek needed a big kick in the posterior. Spock and Kirk chewing up time grating over the minutiae of intergalactic politics wasn't going to cut it. And this latest outing is certainly not that. But one thing this outing also isn't is smart. In fact, it's dumb. It's really dumb. Oh, switch of the logic centers of your brain and you'll be fine, as someone above said. Riiight.
I'm watching The Man Trap
But Trek has always taken liberties with common sense and logic. It just grates on me when someone acts like Trek was this model series for enlightened people and that J.J. Abrams films are just fluff that shit on Roddenberry's vision.
Yes, thank you.
And people, please. The "cerebral" thing that hardcore fans love to throw around is the one word that almost kept Trek from ever being aired in the first place.
This stuff is supposed to be fun, adventurous. Stop with the snobby attitude for crying out loud. Bringing in new fans only makes Trek stronger.
