In TOS, Delta Vega was the first planet Kirk visited ("Where No Man has Gone Before"). Now, in this remake, it still stands - Delta Vega is the first planet Kirk visited! (I like how Abrams did that).

Hmm. Nice point.

I really don't care about those kind of details but it is intresting to find the correlation.

I saw the movie May 9. I'm a long time Star Trek fan and loved this movie. The change in the timeline really gives a chance to develop characters in a way that they just couldn't before. Uhura and Spock, omg loved that combination. I hope they stay together in how ever many movies they make with the new "crew".
It was nice to see Captain Kirk not winning every battle, not getting every girl. Wonderful to see Spock's father saying he loved his mother. Changes everything!
Urban was an amasing Bones, even sounded eerily like him, loved that too.
Can't wait to see what happens next.

Short and Sweet,
Thanks Redqueen. Welcome to the forum, glad to have you on board.

I have to say the vulcan factor in this movie moved me...Abrams got the concept of vulcan emotions correct. Roiling under the surface, far stronger than humans. We got the neck pinch, even Romulans were much stronger and he told us they were related...

You know JJ covered dozen's of episodes in just two hours with the vulcan thing.

I saw the movie on Imax, last night.

Trailers do not measure up to the silver screen.

I thought that it did honor previous Star Trek.

I know plots can be torn apart, but I
accept some things as they are.

It was very good, it's been a long wait for a new
film.

I won't get into details, so I don't give spoilers.

Thanks!

Most enjoyable for a fan of Star Trek.

Yes the IMAX was worth it.
It was the first time Trek had been on that size screen...
I liked the applause at the end.

the film was absolutely outstanding and Chris Pine did a brilliant job taking on the role of Captain Kirk and I think there should be more

ENJOYING the movie (Monday night 5/11) MADE me join this fine group!

(To put this in perspective, I'm one of those age-40-something-guys who can name all of the TOS episodes. I also enjoyed TNG, then stopped watching TV-Trek).

GREAT MOVIE FUN!! The advantage TOS fans will have is you get to laugh harder at quite a few of the jokes. Monday night turned out to be an excellent choice for seeing the movie and the sound was BOOMING. (I'll remember Monday night right after dinner time seems to have the least number of people. EVERYONE was VERY quiet, which seems to be rare these days.)

Scotty was a riot, Chekov was funny, and McCoy was played very well. Spock was very good and quite convincing. I began to accept Kirk more as the movie progressed. There were moments when the camera angle was just right and Kirk had certain expressions that made him actually LOOK LIKE a young (Shatner) Kirk for a few seconds several times during the movie.You get to see some of the chemistry of their relationships developing together as a team. Nice job integrating Christopher Pike into this reboot realm.

I know we're going to watch this again and again. My wife told me she used to PLAN her schedule around when TOS was on TV and saw all the episodes with her Mom. Aww, she has a little Trek love inside her!

BIG APPLAUSE and cheers from most of the audience after the movie. Most of them remained seated until the end of the credits and the house lights came on.

Here's a photo of a friend dressed as Kirk:
