I have to say that I am really excited for this movie! I grew up with Star Trek and Star Wars. In my house, with 5 kids and 2 parents all of whom were raging geeks, there were always movie quotes being tossed around but used as every day life mannerisms. "Dammit Jim, I'm a doctor...*fill in euphemism here*" or "I have a bad feeling about this..."
Right before Gene Roddenberry died, Star Trek was hitting an all time high. Star Trek TNG, Deep Space 9 and even Voyager were trail blazers on the evening TV. Then in the new millenium it kind of died out. Movies were coming out here and there, and although very well done; it felt like the fans were becoming apathetic toward the whole saga.
Now, since the new films have been coming out, the way they were so simply and eloquently able to re-write the entire Star Trek Universe has me very excited. Die Hard fans like Simon Pegg (Scotty) are working their butts off to ensure the sagas survival. My friends at the USS Inferno and USS Renegade are definitely with me on this when I say , HELL YEA!!! BRING ON THE TREK!!!!!
