This film just strikes me as a really bad idea. I would never call myself a trekkie but I grew up watching all of the series and I have seen all of the films. I think part of the reason I am so nervous is Star Wars — that franchise if ruined for ever after by the awful shit that the second trilogy represents. I worry that this will suffer the same fate. If they had gone for something new it would have been fine but they already tried something like this with the series Enterprise and in more than one place it felt like a retread.
A reimagining? A re-boot? How about a re-hash? Warmed up leftovers. I hope not but my hope is small.
