    unless you can find some story-related Trek connection, I'd really prefer that politics be kept out of this forum, thanks - especially anything remotely related to the US presidential election. Even if you're only joking around, someone may find a way to take offense, and anyway, there are other forums better suited to political topics.

    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.

    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

    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.
