Re: what do people want star trek 3 to be like
I would've thought that the idea that internal consistency in fiction was enjoyable and satisfying (and that internal inconsistency in fiction was unsatisfying) to be pretty uncontroversial. I'm amazed that so much of the commentary boils down to "Stop thinking about it! Stop pointing it out! It's only a movie!!" This is a Star Trek forum, right? Isn't that part of what we're supposed to do?
You need to enjoy Star Trek in a way that makes sense to you. But don't be surprised if many of us aren't as hung-up on the trivialities.
