pfegh. The juvenile "romance" as depicted in nuTrek is about as sophisticated as Saved by the Bell. Of all the contrasts between TWOK and this last film, that characters' maturity - not age - in their interactions with each other is the most striking.
There's more pain and pathos in the lines "I did what you wanted: I stayed away." than in anything NuTrek has come up with, and it managed not to rape the characters in the process.
