How do they rescue Pike and where is he seen at the end of the film?

No, that's just them leaving spacedock.

Also, another hats off moment to Star Trek VI was when Spock says
"If you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth"

Default Well I saw it... (Spoilers)

I must admit the movie was freaking amazing. Defiantly the best looking Trek movie to date.

While I loved the movie I despise it at the same time. It really did go against a lot of established canon. Being a religious Trekkie I'm know I'm not alone on feeling this way. It does make me wonder what we should now accept as canon, the movie or the original series. And how the movie effects the TNG movies and other series.

Aside from those canon issues this movie was easily the best Trek movie ever made, aside from the wrath of khan, obviously. Heck I'd go as fare to say as its probably one of the best scifi movies made to date. JJ did do a great job. The canon issues do nag me though.

Edit: I do know it's supposed to be an alternate universe... So maybe they plan on a series playing on this, and this is probably how they can get away with the canon issues...

Your thoughts?

I don't think the film really affected the principalities of the Trek Universe as much as some are speculating.

I just got home from seeing it as well. I must say it is...amazing. The canon issues for me are not a big deal. The movie seemed like it just started and it was over. That says something. The Enterprise has never looked better. Everything is BIG-really, really BIG. I love what they did with the characters, they seem real, approachable. I give it a thumbs up. Can't wait to see it again.

Canon or "branding" as some want to call it, is held intact by the dialogue. It is an alternate reality as Spock specifically states. an alternate reality created the moment Nero emerged from the black hole.
