I know of a few who didn't. I liked it myself.

Haven't seen it yet but its worth remembering the best Trek films were the even numbers ie: 2,4,6,8 & 10 this one is one of the odd numbers so history says no and so it seems to the fans of Star trek.

But no, I doubt it. I'm not saying that this won't be a good film, but from the clips I've seen I just don't see it happening. The acting is good, but not particularly great. The action looks cool, but to fast paced to be suspenseful. And what the frak is with those blindingly bright bridge lights?

My impression is that this film is trying to hard to be "cool", and because of that it's going to suffer. Maybe I'm wrong - I certainly hope that I am - but that's my worry.

I will say that from the brief clips we've seen, Nero looks like he'll be a great enemy. Khan level? We'll see.
I agree, the action won't be as suspensful as the Enterprise v.s. Reliant fight in the Nebula. One of the best space battles ever. But it will still be fun.

Voyager was launched during the late 20th century. The Borg are around in that time, because in First Contact, they made reference to the fact that they learnt retrospectively that the Borg are in the Delta Quadrant during the 20th and 21st centuries.

Remember in First Contact which is set mostly in the late 21st century, the 24th century Borg attempt to contact their own kind living in the 21st century.

So yeh it does make sense if Voyager made it into the Delta Quadrant.

I say it'll be more WOW FACTOR. It won't have the suspense of Reliant/Enterprise but it will certainly be something to see. I mean let's face it, it's really Kirk/Khan; they never meet, their ships are their swords and it's their fight. That's one thing that made TWOK so great. It was all about character. Much of Trek XI I feel will be about spectacle. Which isn't bad. But I bet the character depth of TWOK won't be there which is why I predict Trek XI won't touch TWOK. But of course I haven't seen it yet, so I may be proven wrong, but if they can achieve the character depth of TWOK then this new movie is going to be a classic.

Then it must have fallen into a worm hole or something, there is no way Voyager could reach the delta quadrant in that amount of time.

Within the time span of the 20th century to the 23rd century it is quit possible the Borg moved around during that time.

I think my first assessment was wrong though.

Maybe the Borg moved during that time span and came across Voyager on their trip.

If the Borg came to Voyager, then yeah, definitely. But from my understanding it'd take Voyager centuries to get to the closest star so there must be some intervention at some point in one form or the other.
