Star Trek was created as a TV series and that's where it belongs. Weekly episodes, each with a "message" or "moral to the story" that gets people to exercise their brains.
The problem with Star Trek these days is that there are only movies that come out every 3-4 years. Because of that, they use the same formula each time. "Evil Villain hell bent on revenge - causes massive death and destruction with lots of explosions!"
Until Star Trek comes back to TV, we are going to have to ignore Gene's vision and tolerate the same movie over and over again.
totally agree with that.
dont help that the recent two movies are in the alternate, and while i accept DS8 was a more darker trek in tied in with the original idea even with arcs as opposed to stand alone episodes with a message.
For me the movies are you say hollywood crash bang wallop type stuff and the last movie a repeat formula of the previous
