Re: Why a reboot was necessary (IMHO)

And I loved Skin of Evil.
To make a digression, "it's new for somebody" is an important thing for fans to remember. As silly as that episode was, it was shocking for me at the time because I didn't realize you could kill characters like that and it left me badly shaken as a child. Which was a good thing.

I watch Star Trek to be entertained and Star Trek Into Darkness does entertain me. It's probably the most entertaining new Trek since The Undiscovered Country.
I think ST:ID was an improvement message wise over the original reboot film and could have dialed it back JUST A LITTLE. Still, I was never bored in my seat and that's impressive given my natural fidgety nature.
