  1. I think this is as far from the spirit of Star Trek as you can get.

    Star Trek is about exploration, about humanity, how we find out place in the stars, and how we deal with the complexities of not only ourselves, but other alien species. It isn’t about crazy stunts and action scenes.

    Even discounting the series (I’m currently watching an episode of DS9 where Miles is struggling with depression and PTSD), the movies themselves always had a deeper underlying meaning to them that the more recent ones seem to.

    • I dunno, with that “this is where the frontier pushes back” line, my first thought was Firefly in the Browncoats versus the Alliance. If that’s going to be the underlying theme of the movie, civilization vs individual freedom, then I’m all for it. Its something that Star Trek hasn’t really done since Enterprise.

  2. Are the reptilians baddies a redesigned Gorn? That’s my guess. The heavies in ‘Beyond’ are the Gorn. Otherwise looks OK, same vein as the first two. More action, less cerebral, but hoping they surprise us with some big ideas.

    • This is a Star Trek movie? I’m puzzled now. I’ve watched Star Trek for decades and if you hadn’t mentioned this supposedly being called Star Trek I would never have noticed. I thought it was just another of those annoying auto-play ads for some space video game for those with ADHD.
