So what's wrong with asking for less flaws with the fun?
Well, some of us did that for forty years with oldTrek - to no avail.

The closest thing that the oldTrek movies offered in ten outings to a "sensitive exploration" of any real world issue was...let's see...ah - "Save the whales."

STID accomplished more with regard to addressing current issues in one film than the oldTrek movies managed from 1979 to 2003.

And I am fairly convinced that to a certain group there is no criticism of the new films, no matter how patiently reasoned it may be, which will be tolerated.
Well, that will be tested if and when someone comes up with one that's new and worthwhile.

Until then...pass.
