I never did post my thoughts on “Star Trek.” And here I am thinking about going to see it again, this time at IMAX. Hell yeah.

So let me just say this … I thought this was brilliant cinema. J.J. Abrams may not be a “fan,” but he friggin’ nailed it. In one genius stroke he managed to preserve all of what went before while still relaunching the franchise. We get to have fresh, mind-blowing stories without the hassle of continuity!

And let’s face it … continuity was a problem with the original franchise anyway.

I’m a Trekkie. I own paraphernalia galore. I own a real bat’leth, ok? If I give this movie three phasers up, it deserves it. But don’t just take my word for it. Get it from Trek alumni. Wil Wheaton opens up his geeky heart here.

All of the Trekkies in the audience were cheering. All of the non-Trekkies were cheering. All of the theater staff, who had presumably seen the movie forty times already, were cheering. Damn, this flick is good. Go see it, or you will be considered a traitor to Sci-fi.
