Star Trek -- who DOESN"T like it?
Kar-el by Mike Grell

I've come to realize that their are two kinds of people who don't like Star Trek.

The first, on the whole, simply don't get it because they can't understand it. They can't accept imaginative fiction with concepts, ideas and metaphor that needs a thought process. They are the masses who watch a lot of reality television, top ten shows and, are now, constantly texting and twittering LOL and are glued to their Ipod.

The second are people that don't watch TV at all or refuse to watch the show because it is "Sci-Fi". Despite their lack of knowledge about the show, they will  still talk about it in a derogatory snide fashion and will prejudge Star Trek fandom on their skewed impressions gleaned from SNL, other media and MADTV.

I have taught high school for 25+ years and this broad generalization applies to both faculty and students.


New Star Trek Music gone like Vulcan

Oh, I saw it -- yes it had awesome casting and acting ,overly bright sets, but hey -- ACTION
and FUNNY -- yes, it was funny
I laughed loud -- probably too loud since all the die hard trekkers had gone to the premiere and I was with an audience of Trek dilettantes..

I've read a number of the reviews and I'm not here to do another one.

I do have to ask a BIG and IMPORTANT question.

Where the H E DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS was the MUSIC???!!!

The film I saw must have been unfinished -- they can"t have released THE Star Trek film of the post millennium with only ONE crummy theme repeating over and over and over ad nauseum through the entire film.

We should be up in arms about this -- every other star trek film, no matter how bad or good, had INCREDIBLE soundtrack music, resulting in spectacular soundtrack  CDs,  We all loved the deep rumbling Klingon Theme, the reworked and beautiful Original Theme, the Vulcan Theme Khan's Theme etc.

This film?

Had an opening...uh tune -- sort of a progression and then, wait for it ...
A KEY CHANGE
wow

original theme 
too late

I think they ran out of bucks after hiring everyone and figured Star trek fan don't care about the music. How incredibly disappointing and insulting.
I think the film needs a redo with an actual musical sound track

then it WOULD be awesome.
