To Boldly Go

Forty years after the original show finished, thirty years after it first appeared in the cinemas, and four years after the last TV show ended – Star Trek is back. The new movie tells the story of how Kirk, Spock, and the rest of the Enterprise crew met.  We saw the film in Imax at the local cinema. It was a thoroughly enjoyable film in its own right, and with enough references to satisfy a Trek fan. It does break the odd numbered rule of Trek films; it is the eleventh and so should be terrible, but I can forgive it that transgression of Star Trek tradition.

The cast convinced as younger versions of those well known characters. Simon Pegg even seems to be doing a Scottish accent almost as terrible as the original Scotty. Zachary Quinto, who plays Spock, has his recreation of the role held up for especially close examination as Leonard Nimoy appears in the movie as Spock returned from the future. 

I hope George Lucas watches this film and  sees how to make a prequel without ruining the franchise. I look forward to further movies in this newly restarted series.
