    Star Trek Into Darkness

    Just saw it with the kids. It was awesome. Better than the last one. Lots of Trek references that die hards will love but a story and characters everyone can follow and enjoy.

    It was a lot of fun. I'll but the DVD. I especially like the Tribble reference. Fiance even liked it and she normally HATES Sci-Fi. I had to drag her to it, and once she realized that it was just a downright bad ass action/drama that happens to be set in the future, she was all in.

    For those who have seen it, I have a question. I am a confirmed original timeline fan. In my happy little world, Kirk was born in Iowa and Vulcan wasn't blown up, ever. Will this movie just further piss me off? Or is there some redeeming value that I can look forward to when hubby drags me to see it? Keep in mind, we still have debates about TOS vs TNG vs DS9 vs Enterprise vs Voyager vs the movies.

    Without telling you the story, it does retell a classic Star Trek story. It's done better than the first movie with the black hole and time travel. This pays homage to the original story but retells it in a more modern light. If you are a total purist it may still piss you off. I'm a fan of the classic stuff but I am enjoying the new stories too. It's not as far fetched as the last movie that's for sure.

    If you want some spoilers PM me and I can give you some better detail without totally ruining it.

    Saw it tonight, and it was just as good (a touch better) than the first.

    TOS all the way. I wish they would just do a movie using the original Enterprise , uniforms , characters , etc and not kill anyone off except for a couple of red shirt cladded security details or destroy the Enterprise. Sort of what they do on the internet movies made by fans such as Starship Exeter.

    I think this whole reboot is awesome. The second flick was great.
