Surely you're not serious. Even the good films weren't that. Star Trek was an action-adventure TV show. That's why they had stuff blow up, fights in most episodes and a whole lot of shaking going on. The new film followed that well established pattern, while mixing in some nice character moments.[/QUOTE] Are we watching the same show? Sure all the ST series and films had their share of explosions and shaking, but they never sacrificed substance for style.
