There is lots of pew pew in Star Trek, certainly on a par with that other Star thing.
They only don't pew pew in the TV show when they can't afford it
pew pew sells
Except, of course, in this film, the Enterprise
doesn't pew pew. Not even once. Its crew pew pews only four times: at Starfleet command after being ambushed; on Kronos; to stun baddies and Khan on the Vengeance
; and to stun Khan in San Fran.
So while the Enterprise
does get pummeled for a bit ... this is hardly a shoot-em-up flick.
