Man, I agree with you 1000% on that one. We may not see eye to eye very often, but on this we are in total agreement, sir. I absolutely hated most of the sound effects. The shuttle sounds sucked horribly. They were, for lack of a better word, feeble sounding to me. They sounded weak and puny. I would have preferred the more Star Trekkish, turbine-like sounds used in past Trek. The Abramsprise's sound reminded me more of the pod-racers from Star Wars Ep 1. As did Kirk's bike and especially the Jellyfish. Actually, the sounds the Jellyfish made were the worst sounds of any ship/vehicle I have ever heard in a sci-fi franchise. The odd oscillating sound effects that seemed to be prevalent on the vehicles in this movie reminded me of the vehicle sounds from the Star Wars prequels. I had that thought even before I learned that the same person who did the sounds for the SW prequels also did the sounds for STXI. Go figure.

That makes you feel better complaining non stop about NuTrek if you didn't like then why did you go and see it in the first place.

Nice, thank you. Perhaps we'll never meet, but I certainly would enjoy it.

I also didn't like the Sound FX of the shuttles. To me, I was waiting for someone in the theater to shout out, "Here's George Jetson! Daughter, Judy! His boy, Elroy! Jane, his wife!" I did like the sound of the Jellyfish, however. It was alien enough for me to buy into...yes, a little on the Star Wars side, but I like Star Wars...well, Episode IV and onward that is.

Tie Fighter sound is probably the best sound effect for a ship ever!

Years ago a friend told me Janeway's voice sounded like Jane Curtin's Conehead character from Saturday Night Live. After that every time I heard her, sure enough, Premat Conehead came to mind. Thanks guys for planting that Jetsons seed in my head! No telling how long before I get rid of that one!

Jane!!! Stop this crazy thing!!!!
