A good deal of my dislike for Star Trek (2009) is to do with its trampling over and ruining classic characters and elements from one of the greatest shows ever. But turning Shatner's thoughtful, philosophical, romantic soldier diplomat into an American Pie fratboy would have been slightly more forgiveable had the story not been the most stupid mess of coincidences that makes Transformers still the writers' best script to date (and that's the most damning indictment I can come up with).
No one will ever be able to convince you otherwise on the rest of what you perceive as a stupid mess of coincidences, but, as far as Kirk goes, the idea of the Trilogy appears to be watching the character of Kirk grow from the "Punk American Pie Fratboy" in the Kirk we know and love from TOS

Oh good, another two films of him being a c*** then. By which point they could well cease to be profitable and Star Trek will be over again.

Hmm... If the force of terror is played by John de Lancie, I can see Kirk in a manhunt.

Actually I'd like to see how Kirk would have handled Q...

Oh my, this is terrific discourse. Let's just quote something followed by a disparaging emoticon as though it's perfectly obvious something silly was said. Yes, how grown up.

That is the sort of "swipe at another poster" from which I asked people to refrain, only a few posts back.

Your choice to disregard that request will earn you a warning. Any and all comments to PM.

That's what I was expecting and hoping for. But so far he seems to have been appointed captain by destiny, Old Spock and himself (against the better judgement of his comrades too, who understandably appeared only too willing to let Spock beat him to death). Hopefully we'll see him earn it in the next one.

If you're going to bump the thread up after a week, it should be to add something more substantial than this, which moves discussion forward not at all and amounts to little more than piling on.

Closing.
