no cunning nick of time rescue plans.
Apart from the entire movie itself being one big, long, nick of time rescue plan.

That would never happen in a Star Trek movie, would it.
It's worth pointing out that Kirk gets that drink while in 1987 and further he makes an odd grimmace at it after drinking it.

Also: On the Admiral Archer and his dog thing.

There's no way it was *the* Archer and Porthos we know from Enterprise.

This movie takes place nearly 100 years after the events of "Enterprise." On the very edge of human-life, and that's being generous even given the expanded life expectancies in the 23c, and well beyond the edge of beagle life.
it had to be the Archer we know. no point putting it in the movie otherwise. so I happen to think it was a serious continuity error. not major in terms of the movie, but an error nonetheless.

Nero's motivations were rather ill conceived and shallow, imho. They might as well have given him a moustache to twirl.
shallow? shallow?!?!

try losing your wife and child and your whole goddamned planet and let me know if you feel like your feelings about that loss are shallow.

OTOH...

I feel the same - I went a little nuts when I started having custody issues with my daughter. If anything happened to her I would probably go a little Jokerish.

But my existence is ill conceived and shallow in itself..

Saw it again on sunday evening. Went to a late showing and there wasn't that many people in there. I have to ask through, since I didn't stay til the end of the credits, but there isn't any addition scenes right? I noticed that twice now that a lot of people stayed during the credits. Just wanna be sure I didn't miss something.
no, just that the music during the credits is awesome (plus, those ARE the credits; there weren't any earlier). also, the movie is dedicated to Gene and Majel -- right at the end of the credit scrawl.

Going after the one man who tried to do something about it on some ridiculous misplaced vengeance quest certainly would be pretty shallow.

I don't buy his motivation. At all. Plus, he suffered from terminal BadMovieVillain syndrome and was played by Eric f'ing Bana. I keep saying it, but yeah, in the same league as Shinzon in the ol' "Shitty Trek Villains" category.

It pretty much is. Although I'm only playing up to the banter (ie from you and associated Doctor Who subforum regulars...).

But that really doesn't mean I'm being dishonest every time I express a negative view about a film. Quite the contrary, actually.

I get that. I think our attitudes are close enough that even if we disagree I can see your point.
