    And as for the "one man piloting a starship", half the secondary hull looked to be lined with mass server farms, when they were taken out by the torpedo explosion, the computer even states it can no longer guarentee it has enough control to follow orders anymore.

    I read your review, kirk55555. Strong stuff.

    Do you know there's a message board here on the BBS that is great for this type of discussion. It's in a place called The Neutral Zone. Strong discussion, and a thread about STiD as well. I think you'd like it!

    Go up to the top left-hand corner of this page to "User CP" and click. On that page, scroll down on the left-hand side for "Group Memberships" and click. Then click to join The Neutral Zone and you're in. It's that easy!

    Hope to see you there, buddy! :techman:

    I'm not wild about it, personally. A little too close to baiting for my liking.

    Funny enough, I liked ST09 better than this cluster f of a movie. The writing was a joke, and the acting was at times too. A real waste.

    At least the first one was going somewhere. This one just kept on borrowing from the original series and the Wrath of Khan (which was miles better, imho, than this travesty). The whole getting a blood infusion so that Kirk may live, via due to the Tribbles (could be wrong, but this is what I remember), was just cheap and had me laughing my butt off :guffaw:. And the whole reverse death scene with Kirk getting killed instead of Spock, was just bad period.

    I wanted to run out of my living room screaming after seeing this film. It made the old school Captain Kirk look good... and I couldn't stand him :devil:. Now he's all good... the new one gets on my nerves SO much :scream:.

    What I said about it on another forum...

    Look closer, they did have assistance - unless humans have found a way to shoot bubbles from their feet in the 23rd century.

    (and it was Kirk and McCoy, not Spock!)

    Ah forgot about that.

    Thanks... it was easy to get them mixed up :lol:.

    Still am not a fan of the movie though.

    Um right, so he voted months ago and just saw it? Yeah that's a valid criticism. More like spouting verbatim what the minority criticisms are of the movie amongst trek fans.

    It's true I haven't read much of this thread, so, there may be a lot in this thread, but, of the criticisms I see common throughout the rest of the board, I've gotta say that he has come up with a new criticism, in saying Quinto, Pine and Saldana all were horrible actors. I haven't seen that criticism (And I personally don't agree with it, but, as far as I've seen, it is an original criticism)

    RAMA, you've been here more than long enough to know that critique of a mod advisory is properly conducted via PM or the "Notify Moderator" function, not in open thread. That you disregard that to lay on an example of the very thing I was in that post cautioning against—seven weeks after the fact, no less—well, that will earn you a warning. Comments to PM, please.

    The movie was a solid C. What saved it from a D was the awesome special FX, but sorry, one main criteria I have for a Trek movie is re-watch-ability for me. This is as re-watchable as Nemesis or Insurrection, as in it has none.

    Points I liked:
    1. Cumberbach's acting
    2. I did like seeing Peter Weller
    3. The USS Vengeance
    4.Enterprise rising out of the ocean
    5.Pleased to see that the Klingons weren't SO different in appearance from the Prime universe, yet different look for a new feel.

    Things I disliked:
    1.Gawd, why reboot a series than rip off TWOK in the process, under the guise of being a "homage." Spock screaming Khan, especially. Talk about COMPLETELY missing the boat on going in a new direction! Wasn't that the whole point of bringing in Abrams to "revitalize" the franchise? They could have hired B&B do this movie.
    2. Klingons need to lose the Spartan helms and the trench coats. They look kinda ridiculous.
    3. JJ Abrams' interpretations of villain aliens need to use rogain!
    4. Khan! I mean, WHY? before the lame reveal, John Harrison worked just fine as a villain in his own right.
    5. Uhura nagging Spock all the time
    6. I love all the fanboys who rave how STID is soo "innovative" but how many corrupt admirals are we going to see in star fleet? TUC and Insurrection covered that, already.
    7. Magic blood!
    8. Tribbles!
    9. The fact that Star Trek 2009 is far superior. This one should have been better.

    "Innovative"? I don't recall much raving about that going on.

    Here's a suggestion: Why not stick to discussing the movie and/or comments which have been made here, and just leave out backhanded swipes at any fan groups for things they haven't actually said?

    How could you not like tribbles? My 5 year old says thats the best thing about Star Trek.

    You're not a Klingon, are you?

    A tribble saved the life of Captain Kirk. Somewhere, David Gerrold wept with joy.

    Do you know this for a fact that no one anywhere raved about how innovated STID was? Are you a fan boy? Do you speak for all fan boys everywhere? No? Then here's a suggestion: Settle down, Beavis, lighten up, and quit looking to be offended at a figure of speech expressing an opinion about a movie (that IS what we are all doing here, after all), that wasn't even directed at you.

    I rest my case :)

    I'm a moderator in this forum. As such, I'm reasonably familiar with what's been said here and with what hasn't, and I was offering you some friendly advice.

    Just doing my job, Butthead, so settle down and lighten up, yourself. :)

    As a general rule, speaking to the topic or to the content of posts made by others is the way to go; taking potshots at the people making those comments or at "fanboys" who are supposed to have said a thing some vague somewhere, not so much. In short: post, not poster. Master that, and you might go far.

    Appeal to ignorance. In other words, "it could be true" is pretty weak support for an assertion.
