Certainly it has a soul! Just a more action-oriented, take-charge one, which is so foreign to many Trek fans that they cannot even see it.

Not at all. The simple fact of the matter is that nobody has to "reach" for any scraps - there are legions of them, because (much to your chagrin), people can't stop talking about how good this...

I don't think it was that. TWOK had more substance than this movie, too. But why?

Well, easy. Long-running TV shows and movie sequels have one thing going for them: they don't need to introduce...

And what I was referring to was Star Trek whose depth, after 30 years, was rather either contrived or illusory.

Take a Next Generation episode that everyone raises up as one of the best ever -...

Indeed. So before this movie, there already was more than one Star Trek, wasn't there?

Yes, that's actually and undeniably true. The movie's resolution did not involve reversing the polarity of an otherwise-unrelated ship system (or other form of deus ex Enterprisia); nor were the main...

No, water cannot become radioactive. Aren't you listening? It can't happen. Radioactivity is what happens when an unstable isotope decays into a stable one. The hydrogen and oxygen that compose...

Water doesn't become radioactive. It's used as both a coolant and a neutron moderator (actually sitting there in the reaction chamber) in most nuclear power plants, and doesn't become radioactive...

That settles it. Shatner saying "The ship looks great" doesn't actual mean he thinks the ship looks great. It's a blatant lie. A LIE. The only way that Shatner could ever prove that he really...

Yeah, this. My guess is it's a test or demonstration of the weapon on some unlucky, not-important planet. Obviously we need to know what the weapon actually does if there's supposed to be any...

First, there's no reason to think the "blue-er" portions of the Ent-A's hull are anything more than paint. There's some random "blue" markings on the dorsal pylon, too. And there's huge yellow...

We know the dilithium chamber was in the saucer section; we don't know that there was a "warp core" of the 1701-A-and-beyond type, and therefore we don't know that there were plasma conduits.

Do you think this is the start of a trend?
