But since I can't put myself in the shoes of a non-fan, I had always been wondering how someone outside of the fandom would react to it...
My roommate and his girl friend really never gave Star Trek a second thought before this movie. Not that they didn't like Star Trek as a franchise, it just didn't catch their interest.

Although they did not cry during the opening moments of the new movie, it did move them, and from that moment, they were hooked.

As for me, it's hard for me to fight back a lump in my throat every time I watch that scene.
