Frankly, I thought ST6 dragged, and had the most anti-climactic cheezy ending of all of them. (Ready for the flamers)

If anybody did anything to reinvigorate Trek, it was Harve Bennett. (Of course, he lost his marbles when he wanted to do the ST:Academy with new actors portraying the old characters....hmmm, sound familiar?)

My point is, I doubt Nick Meyers gives a rat's about this new ST. And just becasue he made an almost perfect film in ST:2, that doesnt give him the right to just jump in some 28 years later full of pizz and vinegar.
was that a subtle allusion to Kirk's famous "I've Cheated Death" speech I detect?
