Re: Fact-Checking Inside Star Trek: The Real Story

^Well, my comment is hearsay. It's not authoritative unless it's a direct quote from the filmmakers.

And you know, I tried looking into it and it seems I may have been wrong. According to this site, none of the marketing for the film ever mentioned Shakespeare, although film critics were making the Tempest comparison from the get-go. I can't seem to find any sources saying that the filmmakers confirmed the Tempest influence, so I can't be sure what it was that convinced me to change my mind. Now I'm confused. Robert Comsol might be right about this -- although he certainly could stand to be less condescending in making his case.
