which is supposed to be terrible btw, from Gamespot sums it up pretty good about JJ Abrams Take on the Trek Franchise, better than anything else I heard

"The thing about Star Trek is that it has never really been about the action. Character drama and a continuing quest for knowledge have always been the show's raison d'etre over phaser blasts and exploding spaceships. Well, at least they were until J.J. Abrams got his hands on the property. And it's Abrams' action-packed, lens-flare-infused take on the Star Trek universe that forms the basis of Star Trek The Video Game, a homogeneous and vapid third-person shooter that reduces the inimitable Kirk and Spock to the role of gun-toting foot soldiers. Frankly, they deserve better. "
It's customary to provide a link to the material being cited, so here that is. As video reviews go, it's not bad, but that bar's not set very high - most consist of angry, barely-articulate spewing which goes on far too long. So anyway, this is better than those, but it's still no more than a review of a game - one which does feature voices of several of the cast but with which Abrams and Company have minimal involvement. As a comment on the movie, I'm afraid it's not worth much.

Also: "markypants"?

Re: This Quote From the Star Trek Video game Review

If that's a professional reviewer, I'm not impressed. He's supposed to be reviewing the game, not ranting about AbramsTrek. If he just has to rant about AbramsTrek, I'd expect better from a professional than the same nonsense I can find on this forum.

Anyone who starts a piece out with, "The thing about Star Trek is that it has never really been about the action," has lost all credibility in that first sentence.
Pretty much sums it up nicely.

The review doesn't claim that Classic Trek didn't do action, it said that it wasn't about the action. And I agree.
