No they were not, movies unfortunately cannot be like the series. People need to understand that. The movie will not succeed or fail due the Constitution class size or shape but due to viewership numbers.

In that respect JJ has been sly. He has added humour, [i cant wait to see Kirk's gags as given in the reports] he has added flash and effects for the action junkies [me included]and he has hopefully added some real sentimental stuff for laying the base for the franchise to begin anew.

I have a lot of the same gripes, but the ship isn't one of them. I don't know why the car is there, it seems like unnecessary action. Hopefully there is some science fiction in there somewhere not just space wars action. It's really tough to tell what's going on from the trailers. One gripe I don't understand is people talking about the black under shirt Kirk is wearing, that's standard TOS issue if one ever cared to notice, in fact Spock a few times was seen in sick bay wearing just his black undershirt.

Actually, there were lots of complaints at the time; I was at that forum at that time and remember the heart-felt frustration was as bad as that which is expressed in this forum.

Well yeah they were "notified" of our dissatisfaction, but they knew we could swallow that bitter pill. I consequently dont see looping Enterprise on New Voyages anymore. Come onnn......... Trek battles? They are reaallllyyy important. Story too

I thought it was pretty funny...I didn't agree with a lot of what they said, but they were funny and cute so that alone made it worth watching...plus, they have English accents and what woman doesn't love cute guys with English accents?

The one thing I really agreed with was Spock attacking Kirk on the bridge....that's going to need a lot of explanation to make sense to me. Old Spock had damned well better provide young Kirk a reason young Spock is unbalanced (pon far...but he didn't recognize it due to the readily available sex on board?...just a fun thought).

Oh...and Simon Pegg is going to get tired of saying "I like serving on this ship, it's exciting!".... I can't argue with that one....

Ahem. "As you are so fond of pointing out, doctor, I am half human."

That explain it for ya? Like or not this is a younger Spock, his quest for a logical state of mind that satisfies his preferred Vulcan side is still in its early development.

No...sorry...that won't do it...Spock is pretty well a whack job at this point (if we take The Cage as evidence) so "half human" doesn't cut it...

Frankly, it would be sort of nice if they gave us a reason Spock under Pike's command was such an emotional wreck....

Probably the same reason Deanna Troi was such a wreak in the pilot of TNG but seemed to mellow out in later episodes, character development. Can you imagine 5 years of her facial contortions everytime she sensed someone else's pain?
