The one thing?

The applause in the theater at the ending.

The applause means that the franchise I've been following for years will live on for years more.

I think the casting was wonderful. The special effects were done VERY well. Almost ALL of the Hollywood "movie" aspects were done well. I give credit where credit is due. It's the "trek" aspects I believe fell very short.

I really, really enjoyed watching young Spock beat up the other kid "don't talk about my momma!!" That was a memorable moment for me.

Also seeing Sarek admit he loved Amanda, that was powerful.

I may be remembering the scene wrong, but I thought the final straw was when the boy called Sarek a "traitor" for marrying a human. I know that's what Spock mentioned to his father after the fact.

Which has EVERYTHING to do with Spock's mother.

I liked Spock and Uhura. He'll really need her and, as Quinto said, Spock now has someone to talk about his feeling with other than his two buds, Kirk and McCoy.

All of it. The vision of it. This is not your fathers Star Trek. The charactors were still there but I could imagine this is what they were like as less experienced crew members. I really liked Neros accent. He was more or less a blue collar Romulan and sounded like it when he spoke. He didn't sound so proper with his speach like most villians here.

YES!!! I wished this movie had more Nero. I liked the choice of Eric Bana since when they announced that he was going to play the villain.
