I really disagree, I find Superman's origin beyond boring. All you need to know is that he's an alien, his homeworld blew up, and he survived and was raised by nice folks on Earth. The countless interpretations of it, with Jor-El as a quasi action hero or as a hologram that never stops bothering his son drive me nuts.
Similarily, all you need to know about Star Trek is that there's a ship called Enterprise with a guy with pointed ears on board who acts like a computer.
See, I think that's not at all a fair comparison. The Enterprise and the pointy ears guy are the ongoing adventure of Star Trek. The Krypton stuff is just a prologue for Superman.
