I would would say no because I'm a fan of the origional series, TNG and Voyager. This new star trek movie was great and I really enjoyed it. Atleast in my opinion, it really made up for insurection and nemisis which were big time flopps. Star trek went down the hill after First Contact and now with this new reboot, I think star trek has been reborn. Just one question though, is kirk back for good now because of a fan movment that was trying to bring him back? I would hope so because it would be great to see him in the 24th century.

It's going to take them a while to reach the 24th century.

Just wish they could alter the time line so star trek 5,7,9 and 10 were never made. I don't own any of those. and make it so kirk doesn't die like a panzy.

The only thing this movie and the series Enterprise did was ruin the Vulcans. They are portrayed as arrogany ****s. You could expect the Vulcan children to be assholes since they have not gone through the disciplinary art of muting their emotions or whatever its called, but the rest of those Vulcan elders were dicks. I imagine this was done so Sylar/Spock can get with Uhura. Boo hiss! The rest of the movie looked great though, the script was meh with a lot of great action... logic and respect for science was thrown out the window. Take for instance our heroes diving into the Vulcan atmosphere and not vaporizing from friction with the atmosphere or the fact that ships are able to fly in and out of black holes without being damaged whereas a planet is comsumed in minutes. Hire a ****ing science adviser for ****s sake!!!

As they've said, all the commotion in the new movie were an alternate universe, so no.

I don't know why trekkies seem to hate the new movie. It could be that it does not have much relation to the old one, but what's so bad about watching an action & adventure science fiction film with alot of effects and an understandable screenplay in it?
What's the fuss all about.

Of course I hated the Spock=Uhura thing for shi*, but the rest of the film was fine.

What I think might ruin it, is if in the 3rd and hopefully final film, is they somehow make the story slot back into the original timeline.

I don't want that. I want an alternate timeline, like a good Kahn, or some sort of Klingon destruction.

Something completely different to the original timeline.

They've always seemed like an arrogant race to me. Spock constantly telling Kirk everything he does is "illogical". Sarek trying to hide his emotion - in TNG - when it's obvious that he's coming into a part of his Vulcan life where emotion is unavoidable (Bendii Syndrome). T'Pol was arrogant because humans - as far as the Vulcans were concerned were too young when it came to space travel. Spock in the new Star Trek was simply more open to emotion because in the new universe, something happened that made that Spock didn't do the emotion purging ritual.

What JJ Abrams was trying to make clear is the fact that the original script in TOS was written so that Spock had a romantic involvement with Uhura, unfortunately for Lenard Nimoy, Will Shatner decided he wanted to kiss Nichelle Nichols so changed the script.

It's Star Trek...all "science" used is theoretical at best, if not a stage behind that as far as science goes - it's probably not even regarded as fringe science.

good point

the ships flew in and out of the blackholes, yes. The planet however, had a blackhole inside it. As is the case with the Nerada at the end of the film, the blackhole was inside the Nerada and it fell apart...

I loved the approach they took in rebooting the franchise. Both can coexist without harming each other.

I loved the recent film and can't wait for more.

I thought the collapsible katana was quite cool, actually. The new phaser design was ..eh.. I wasn't completely wowed by it, but I understood where they were going with it.
