I think you also questioned the relevance of Delta Vega? Remember the quick set up they gave while the main characters were on the bridge?
The position and the planet class No altered timeline can explain that change.

BTW... was your version in English or dubbed in to German?
Saw the German version on the 6th and the English original version on the 7th.

Although it was the same movie, version did you like better?

The only reason I ask, is that I prefer to watch a movie in its original language... say "Kung Fu Hustle", and read the text at the bottom, than hear it dubbed.

The German voices were okay, but when you KNOW that Nimoy speaks certain lines and when you KNOW what all the classic TOS reference lines sound like and Scotty's accent etc. - then it's painful to listen to any other version than the original.

Default Wow Wow Wow

J: From a TOS fan (grew up with the original series and movies I, II, III, & IV), I thought it was just outstanding!

H: Right. Well done, well done.

J: The (young) characters are so full of vigor. They are so much fun to watch.

H: I know it sounds a bit Trite, but this is a "Must See."

J: And I'll be going again tomorrow.

H: Right. And the BluRay will be a no-brainer.

J: Right.

J&H

I'm an original series fan (and enjoy the other series too), and I have to say I love this "reboot" of the S.T. original series crew. Can't wait for another one, and would love to see a TV Series with this crew, writers, and production company.

No TV series just yet.

Let's be happy this movie was made and was great. And let's hope for a couple more movies before a series is even thought of. Because once a series is introduced again, it will cheapen the movies if both are being produced at the same time... just like before.

Exactly! I just came back from the movie and I was totally blown away. One reviewer on "At The Movies" said he wasn't impressed by the SFX. What impressed him was the characters and how they slowly became the team of explorers/adventurers we've come to know and love. While I found that the special effects (like the aforementioned reviewers counterpart) to be benchsetting, I agree that more than anything, this was a powerfully character oriented film. The acting was spot on. The writing was was fresh--without the humor feeling forced or corny. An excellent job! An exellent film. As one critic said, it's the film of 2009!

Just got back, beat tired.... loved the movie...really surpassed my expectations!! It was thrilling...nearly but not quite perfect. I still need to process it a bit more though. Rather than regurgitating whats already known here are some thoughts.

A-

The Great:

-I loved the musical score
-Effects were top tier, solid and seamless
-Action sequences were momentous
-E looks great to me
-Sound work was amazing and had many nods to original sounds
-Pace was brisk, almost too brisk..the movie seemed 20 minutes long, it went fast
but in a good way, directors cut will extend replay value
-Characters all uncannily unique, but familiar, and gelled very well together
-Way funnier than I thought it could be, and the humor worked very well
-Nero was done well for this story
-Nimoy was great as expected
-Captured the essence of Trek for me
-Quinto really impressed me and I was worried. I like this his Spock
-Pine had the prick down pretty well, but managed to rebuild and forge himself into the
leader we expect, had all the humor and the zest of Kirk, with actually some blatant
nods to shat I thought in parts of his performance.
-Urban was dead perfect, I mean perfect
-I like Yelkins Chekov also, he was way different but I really like his portrayal and the
accent was great.
-Pegg, while seen too briefly, was great to see as Scotty and had great comedic
material. He will be great going forward
-Uhura and Sulu were also serviceable and with more time to develop will be fun to
watch
-Spock and Uhura worked for me and thought it wouldn't. This surprised me.
-The film made me want for more with this cast and creative team.

The fair: Minor gripes

-Story definitely felt cut short in spots and a bit over edited
-Many things that make ya go hmmm...mainly the many coincidental happenings, but
can also be conveniently explained as fate
-Not as much kid Kirk stuff as I thought there should be
-KM test was not what I expected and may need to see again to appreciate but was
missing the punch I was hoping for
-3 missing academy years ....maybe well get more in flashbacks
-Sarek was lacking...Sorry Ben Cross good try though.
-What all happened to Pike on Neros ship wasn't fleshed out enough for me.

Theater was packed and the crowd was engaged and applauded at the end. I have not seem a movie since Rocky 2 where the crowd cheered in many parts.

Eliza is happy....and Eliza is seeing it again tomorrow (daughter was enthralled enough to want to go again). There were a few "HUH???" moments, but no more than the best Star Trek episodes...I actually almost forgot about Spock's floating sideburns for much of the movie (which is amazing because I've been obsessing about them since the first pictures came out).

Bruce Greenwood is just to die for....I'm not kidding....wow! And, this in a movie with SPOCK!!!
