    I admit, I was wrong. I have seen the light. All the issues I'd had with Into Darkness I am now ok with and I admit, in my stubbornness, I was perhaps a bit too jaded by having been spoiled so much in the lead-up to the film's release by the spoiler whores here and on Facebook to really be able to see the film for what it is.

    THIS. For the love of God, THIS.

    :confused: According to surveys like the one at the top of this thread, it has been widely accepted.

    Well, having bought the BluRay and watched it a third time, I can't say I like Uhura's bitching on the Mudd ship in the movie. Makes her seem like a whiner, which she wasn't in the first movie. Otherwise it holds up pretty well. Not as good as ST09, but good.

    Your stunning rebuttal to the points Kay makes aside, you are really missing out then. For once it's actually NOT "tl,dr" and quite worth reading.

    I think if they hadn't done that this movie would be wildy popular.

    Thanks for reading and commenting on my post. I thought I was being ignored there. :bolian:

    Yup, but look at his sig, the power of All Caps and Smilies, on something trivial. Someones not happy.

    It's funny, STID actually gave her something to, you know - that thing dissenters say NUTrek doesn't allow you do - think about. I'd say her thought processors are fully functional.

    While I can't speak for others, I have never claimed that NuTrek doesn't ALLOW us to think. I've said it doesn't it LIKE IT when we think, because then nothing makes sense.

    Shocker – I won't be buying the DVD which makes this the first Star Trek movie EVER that I won't own.

    Here's my take on the DVD: The 800 Pound Gorilla

    ^You do know that TNG used a similar "subspace transporter" for exactly one episode ("Bloodlines") and then completely forgot about it?

    And that transwarp beaming was written out of Trek (in this timeline at least) in this film anyway - confiscated from Scotty by Section 31 whose R+D facility in London was then destroyed.

    I disagree with your blog. :shrug:

    The transwarp transporter makes starships no more obsolete than the transporter makes shuttles obsolete.

    And that prevents Scotty from using it on the Enterprise transporters how exactly? Or any transporter he uses, because it was just a formula he had to type in.
