That's good stuff! I can buy into the Spock/Uhura romance a little easier now!

She is easy on the eyes. Spocura threw me for a loop at first but I warmed up to the relationship pretty quickly. I wonder if it'll persist or evolve(devolve?) into something closer to what we saw in TOS? And will a certain Christine Chapel come along and throw a wrench into their works?

Join us next time for the answers to these and other questions on Star Trek: As the Planet Turns.

You mean you weren't put off by the fact that the warp nacelles were pitched at a 45* angle instead of a 46* angle?


Hooray for willing suspension of disbelief, and the ability to differentiate between that which is real and that which is pretend.

OMG!!! You're right!! There IS a one degree difference! I now loathe that movie, JJ Abrams and any and everyone who had anything to do with it! My Trekkie heart has been ripped from my chest! Oh, my ravaged childhood! whimper!!!

Easy on the eyes, what is the opposite of that? Cannot be hard on.

I liked the Uhura-Spock relationship.

I will just throw in that the while I am a fan of the movie, and it was fun, watching it multiple times has led me to like it less. The plot holes just became gaping for me by the 3rd and 4th time. (My son and I have watched it a few times)

I find it flows better the more I watch it - once you become aware of plot holes I find they either stick or you can ignore them enough to keep watching - but overall the holes themselves don't worry me too much.

The more I do watch it though (and watch TOS alongside it) the more it feels like a good continuation.
