Where on ice planet Hoth did old Spock find a six foot long tree branch to set on fire and drive away the lizard?

I don't remember Kirk running pass any trees on his way to the cave.
It was from The Undiscovered Khan Tree.

Your thoughts?
Absolutely nothing new here.

Time to rewatch "The Onion":

I'm still waiting for the three hours of bonus scenes in which "characters stand around debating the merits of saving the Andorian Ambassador from the surface of Cylax Four until you just wish everyone was dead."
That was brilliant. lol

I don't know what kind of Trekkies you hang out with, but in my social circles we bitch about this sort of thing and accuse it of ruining Trek's purity of spirit.

Mostly, I choose to hang with fans who have a positive outlook like my own, and we manage to enjoy most of what we see. If it's bad (eg. ST V) we see it a few times and have a laugh, and if it's good we see it lots.
That's a great way to approach it.

I recall watching the premiere of Insurrection at Crown Casino, in a cinema full of fans. We laughed and cheered throughout and gave it a round of applause at the end, and I went home feeling great about it. I went online the next day, read through the waves of negativity and didn't feel like sharing my experience at all.

It's such a different experience sharing it with the right people. I am going through Voyager with my girlfriend, who's quickly becoming a Trek convert. We watched Threshold last night, and a part of my mind braced for the howls of outrage at the abomination that ruined Star Trek forever. The verdict: "That was fun! Silly, but fun."

Give me a shared experience with a like-minded person than a forum discussion any day.

Re: 15 Reasons JJ "Ruined & Destroyed" Star Trek

The Abomination not only ruined and destroyed Star Trek, but it may well have signaled the death knell for Western Civilization as we know it--and could even pose a threat to the continued existence of sentience in the observable universe.
YMMV

Apparently he's been feeling a bit hyperbolic.

Every movie a new planet dies. Which one will be next?

I only went down to about number 11 and got bored with the same old nitpicks. These issues have been debated ad nauseum.
Yes, I get a distinct "been there, done that" feeling...besides, you might dislike a film for these above reasons, but to claim that they have destroyed the franchise isn't just a stretch beyond the known realms of pedantic nitpickers, it's simply not true. ST 09 has revived the franchise, even if for a new movie series.
