Having the same people who called me 'geeky' for being a fan ALL THESE YEARS now say they LOVE STID.

I most enjoy seeing so many new people fall in love with trek. these new films have given people the urge to dive into a VERY wonderful rich history.

I had somewhat the same experience with STIX. I went with two very fashionable, very handsome, very professional (and fairly intimidating) friends -- the last people I would think would have any real knowledge of Trek. They invited me because I'm perhaps one of the more renowned Trekkies in our group of friends.

But throughout the movie, the little nods here and there ("Ambassador" Spock, the throwback-styled sound effects, even Archer's beagle!) kept signalling things off. They laughed with nostalgia. They sat up in their chairs. Them trying to mutter under their breaths, "I remember that!" Essentially, the last two people in the world, whom I would have pegged as Trekkies gradually revealed themselves, and to me it was an important lesson to not judge a book by its cover.

After the movie, we went out for dinner and hung out some more, but even *I* was starting to tire from talking about the movie and all its references to pre-Abrams Trek. But who was I to stop them from having their fun?

All of it, except for the 2 seconds before Spock shouted "KHAAAAAAN!" and about 20 seconds afterwards. The rest has been Trek heaven.
Quoted for truth. This was me in the theater:

*Kirk dies*

Me: Is Spock going to shout "Khan?"

*Spock and Uhurah looking sad*

Me: No, they don't have the balls to make Spock say that line. Ah well, it's for the best. Spock would never react like that.

*Music picks up*

Me: Wait... It can't be...

*Spocks angry face*

Me: Is he going t-

Spock: KHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!! !!

Re: The most fun experience you had with nuTrek.

I've only seen 2009, and not until last year. The only part I found intriguing was trying to figure out how they did the moving camera beam down on Spock arriving on a crumbling Vulcan. Still not sure how they did it, unless there was a cgi stand-in for some of it. And Quinto's interpretation is an interesting take, though he seemed a bit overly emotional for adult Spock.The most fun was putting it back in the case.

Ouch, that seems a bit harsh. It still your opinion and I respect that.

Bear in mind that I'm reduced to watching movies at home now, and always alone. I haven't been to a cinema in over 10 years due to health reasons, lack of transportation, and little disposable income, so my movie experience now is much different than it used to be. I think the last film I ever saw in a theater was Star Trek: Nemesis.
