Some people say this film doesn't get the spirit of Trek. I say poppycock and last nights viewing supports it.
To the left of me sat a man given to excess in wine. To my right, a man who I heard say, "Oh, no. Another one of them," in reference to my Carrabean-American decendancy. When it was revealed that Spock and Uhuru (spelling) had a romance, a majority of the audicence clapped. The fellow to my left and right did not.
Trek hopes that by the 23rd century these viewpoints will be a thing of the past. That a Vulcan and an Earthling being in love matters not, and that everyone has a voice and something valuable to contribute to a cause.
J.J. Abrams and crew "gets it." Good job!
