I do have two other things but didn't want to make a new thread about it:

1) Didn't like the product placement (Nokia still exists in the 23ed century ha?) but loved the music. Bestie Boys? That was different but good

2) I missed the part where McCoy was explaining how he got the nickname bones. The theater was laughing a lot during the scene and I didn't hear it. Could someone explain it to me so I at least got that. I'm probably going to see it again, but not this weekend.
He said that his ex-wife took the entire planet in the divorce, all he had left was his bones.

Ok, maybe I'm going to look stupid for asking this, but "The entire Planet?"

A rueful joke on Bones' part, I think.

A joke, a hyperbole to show that the wife had probably very good lawyers and took all the money and the house and the dog...

You know like when you are tired, really tired...and say something like "I feel like I'm a thousand years old"
It doesn't mean you are the immortal highlander.
It's just a hyperbole.

Ah. Thanks for clearing that up. Not sure if it adds anything to the discussion, but good to know anyway.

Because it's a rubbish joke. He's exaggerating about how she took absolutely everything.

Reading through this thread, I am confused. It's the spin-off fans and not the TOS fans who've got their panties in a bunch. I am at a loss to explain this. Is it because the comfortable sameness of the four spin-offs is not present in this movie? Is it because "their" trek is gone now? Do they now feel that they have memorized the Star Trek Encyclopedia all for nothing? Is this movie just too different for them? It's quite strange, when you think about it.
I too noticed this, and in fact am one of the "I'm not quite sure about this movie" people who is a spin-off fan (TNG). For me, it's purely that my favorite Trek now seems to have little chance of occurring in the new Trek universe they're creating. While the original has diverged somewhat from what it would have been from the initial branching point of this new universe, the changes will inevitably have a more drastic effect on the long-term future of that universe. In other words, as a spin-off fan, now I'm left with a Star Trek universe in which my beloved spin-off either won't happen or will be so different that I may wish it hadn't. So, silly as it sounds, I think that's the thing we spin-off people are having trouble reconciling: a new Star Trek universe that may well not include the things we love best about Trek (be it DS9, TNG, or what have you).

Hey, at least ENT people are safe! But seriously, yes, I know my beloved TNG will always be back in the original Trek universe, so I'm becoming okay with it. But I won't be able to feel the same way about this new alternate universe as I do about the original, for the reasons outlined above.

Oh yeah, let's get personal. How kind of you. What a nice chap you must be.
If you'd bothered reading my posts I'd said I didn't enjoy the film that much, but if other people did then good on them.
But oh no, that's not frigging good enough for the likes of you is it. Anyone who would dare dislike something you like is a massive twat and must be shown up.
And what does that even mean anyway, yeah because BTTF isn't a popular film 24 years later is it? Is it a crime now to like that film?
Grow up please, and an apology wouldn't go amiss

The joke comes more from the delivery than the actual line. There's nothing all that funny about the line "I'm a doctor, not a <blank>" either, but it's the delivery that sells it.

Re: The Official STAR TREK Grading & Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]

J.J. Abrams Raped Star Trek. Seriously, he took the series and had his way with it. I am disapointed that I spent 5 dollars on this movie. It was so bad.

If you haven't seen it. Here is the one spoiler that will make you hate JJ Abrams.

HE DESTROYED VULCAN.

That means all the Vulcans from Star Trek the Next Generation, DS9, and voyager are DEAD.

think about that for a minute...
