    We have no idea what all it has "caused". For every gaffe we saw on screen they may have committed many more acts which preserved lives and furthered Federation agendas.

    sad it was doing so well in the 90s, i just don't like critics that say "really, don't see this movie, it sucks so bad, i lost the will to live"

    I don't like that several reviews complain it isn't old Trek.

    Ho hum.

    I expect a very public disbanding may a part of Section 31's plans. Marcus is far too easy with throwing around Section 31's name, even if he did think those he told were never coming back. How does he know they didn't send off an email about it prior to their planned deaths?

    But if it disbands there will be speeches full of Roddenberry ideals about not losing what makes us human as we try and preserve humanity blah blah and everyone will pat themselves on the back and Section 31 will continue, more covert than ever.

    i saw it again tonight, with a packed sold out theater. Something didn't even hit me before. I now know how Spock Prime told NuSpock how they beat Khan. Once again, Khan is taken out by a torpedo. Of all the Trek II references, that one went completely over my head the first time.

    Seen the movie twice now, A+

    It is better than the first one, the issues I had with the first one are mostly gone, still some slight issues with the bud wiser plant stuff, but much improved over the first one. That's my only complaint really. I felt this movie had more substance, and a better story. I also enjoyed the myriad of filming locations and scenes this time. I really liked the parts off the ship, on Earth, very nicely done. I enjoyed making the Enterprise a star of the show, like it is an actual character to the show. I enjoyed all the homages of course.

    Yep, much better than the first one, I'll be seeing it a couple more times at least, plan to go see it with my sister and a friend tomorrow, can't wait to see their reactions.

    It seemed to me that Marcus himself, started Section-31, after he found Khan in this Trek Universe.

    Up to the point that the Narada showed up, it didn't seem likely that Section-31 would have been needed, again, in the JJ-universe.

    I think it existed before, he just took over it now, i.e. the man in charge right now. It sounded like to me it was there before him from this movie.

    Nah. 31 is around in Enterprise. They get their hooks into Reed.

    Well, since Enterprise is the only series still existing in this universe I would go with what was established on that show about Section 31 unless it was directly contradicted on screen. Section 31 actually predates the Federation.

    ETA: Damn, you're all too fast for me.

    did anyone find it a little ironic that when Kirk's five year mission ends it will be around the same time in the "Prime" reality, Kirk started his?

    Ironic? No. It wouldn't be irony. It is a nice little tidbit of trivia, though.

    I saw Star Trek Into Darkness. I thought the 2009 film was better.

    Just saw the movie. I had the impression that a scene or two was deleted from early in the movie.
