My hat is also off to JJ and company having just returned from seeing the first showing of the film in my town.

Awesome, incredible, stellar, epic, entertaining, and any other superlatives you can think of all apply.

The film captures the essence of Star Trek which is the characters perfectly and puts that in a modern film with the budget and creative talent to finally give Star Trek it's due.

My 26 year old non Trekker daughter was blown away and thought the film was awesome. I hope that is a sign of many new younger fans to come.

I hope no so called Trekkie "purists" paid any heed to Abrams advice not to see the film. They'd have missed some good Trek, with a lot of respect shown for it's predecessors.

I'll give everyone involved in this movie a pat on the back, a resounding round of applause, a standing ovation, buy them a drink, and confess my undying love and gratitude. I LOVE this movie!

Not only thanks to JJ, but thanks to Paramount for doing what it should have done a long time ago....investing in a better made ST movie....

Default We saw the movie tonight, a note to JJ and crew

We loved the movie. True, it wasn't 100% perfect, but it was better than I anticipated. I'd give it a rating of 90 from 1-100. I am impressed with actors' performances, and it left me wanting more.

To JJ and Crew: From what I've been reading, A sequel maybe dependent upon performance for Star Trek (XI). If the movie perfoms well, I as a fan (for 24 years) am taking my hat off to sincerely ask that you and Paramount please put your heads together for a permanent adoption of the Trek franchise for development over the long-haul in whatever capacity may be fit. Perhaps, consideration should be given to non-conventional strategies for what is produced. Use your imagination, and think outside the box. That's what you did with this movie, and it was magnificent. If CBS is a factor, judging by what I saw tonight, surely any complication could be worth working through.

Thanks again, for the movie. It is a ride that was worth the wait.
