Am I the only one who was dissapointed by the new Star Trek film?
Like all Star Trek fans I was looking forward to the new film.
However I rapidly became aware that the films was redefining all/most of the parameters that made the TOS/TNG great. The reason being that the film makers wanted to make star trek more relevant to todays younger generations.
Star Trek holds quite a unique position in that most people know Star Trek even if you don't like it. Everyone has head of Captain Kirk for instance. This makes the previously created boundaries (started in TOS and developed in TNG,DS9,Voyeger,Enterprise and the many previous films) important and not available to the whole sale changes that this new film does. I don't want to put people off this film as you should make your own mind up.
I would be interested to hear other peoples thoughts.
