USS Fardell's brief review I saw the movie last Saturday (and it has taken this long to get through the amount of the thread that was posted prior to last Saturday) and I found it FANTASTIC! The Kelvin sequence I enjoyed this, it provides an excellent introduction to the film. Product placement with young Kirk What product placement? It did not break my suspension of disbelief to see a Nokia communications system in that antique car. (As for Alternate Universes: I would think that the universe that the Nerada and Nimoy-Spock came from and where Romulus was destroyed may not be the Original-canon Trekverse; and thus there may not be a WWIII in the past of this universe; thus the existance of Nokia is not contradictory.) The Kobayashi Maru Test This is done well, I enjoyed the way that Kirk behaved in it. jumping ahead... The Destruction of Vulcan This introduces a major change to this version of Star Trek compared to the previous one. I would like to know where they go with this. The rest of the Movie Overall it was really well done. I give it a 9/10. There may be a fuller review after I have watched it a second time.
