Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

HaventGotALife isn't alone in his dislike of Khan's reboot. I, personally, was looking forward to something original, wild and unpredictable. But these new movies are all about being commercial and Wrath of Khan has always been viewed as one of, if not the, best STAR TREK movies. Nonfans might've heard of Khan, probably, but for sure they would know the word Klingon and Tribble. In fact, if they don't put whales in the next movie, I will be very surprised.

What surprises me is that there are many actors who don't want the risk of being in an original feature. They want the security of franchises/remakes/reboots, because the chances of the project totally bombing are low. Nobody wants to be associated with box office poison. STAR TREK: Into Darkness certainly didn't fail at the box office and it was no retread of Wrath of Khan or Space Seed. But artistically, it was a flawed picture and seeing Khan again wasn't any great shakes. It made a fortune, though, just like it was supposed to.
It Takes Two.
