Okay, so that's the first element I'd address.

***

And, in my mind, the titling of the movies goes like this...

Star Trek I: In Thy Image
Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan
Star Trek III: The Search for Spock
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
Star Trek V: The Undiscovered Country
Star Trek VI: Generations

***

And JJ Abrams updating the look of all this, absolutely. The characters and events are what matter most, not the props and sets. If they can do the sets and props so they look way better, then all power to them.

Depending on if "better" is translated as "adjusted enough to be in keeping with current-day advances yet still is recognizable as TOS" or "redone so it looks awesome-keen on screen"...

I'll admit, the film had some good action scenes--but yowzers, it was basically a medicore action movie set in space, starring characters that we know and love, and who we know are better than that film.

Remember that time when Kirk is frozen but his eyes still move back and forth.

Just the title alone "SPOCK'S BRAIN" makes me cringe...

The scene in Trek V when Kirk falls off the mountain and spock saves him using his handy rocket boots...

The Way To Eden was fairly wretched also...

I think I'll go eat a rolaid...

Is there truly STAR TREK canon to adhere to? Not really... The Defiant had aft firing phasers and torpedoes in THROUGH A MIRROR DARKLY and in TOS the Constitution Class vessels didn't have aft firing weapons....

In TOS Zephram Cochrane was from Alpha Centauri, and in FIRST CONTACT he was from Montana? Come on, TREK has always thrown "canon" aside for artistic license.....

You just never saw those weapons used. Doesn't mean they weren't there.
But you're right on Sephram Cocrance

I said this in another thread, but I'll paraphrase here.

All of us, myself included, get very wrapped up in cannon. But we loose sight of the fact this show was made in '66-'68 and was never meant to be seen more than 1-2 times ever! Not 1000's of times, so you get alot of cannon loopholes, no one ever thought it would be analized.

But can you name any other tv show ever that spawned 10 major motion pictures, and 4 spin off series?

Not too bad for a show that was a ratings dog, in it's own time.
