I refuse to see this movie. There has been nothing good that comes out of it, look at the tech, look at the ENTERPRISE!!! they have changed it to be more advanced, I want all the aliens entities to be green sparkely blobs floating around!
The actos upset me, and what really grinds my gears is the fact that they are pissing all over Canon. Star Trek has been around for 40+ years, it has been established as one of the sacred franchises
picture a Star Wars Reboot (sorry for using the same franchise to prove a point DDC) where Han and Luke were brothers who tour the galaxy and fight crime while being in a rock band. Although it sounds cool, that's not and, I pray to God, never will be Star Wars. Star Trek may need to be revitalized, but it doesn't need to be rebooted.
Kirk 40 years later is still cool and a sci-fi Icon, why change that? Kirk was on the Farragut before the Enterprise, now they are trying to make it seem like the episode "Obsession" has no basis, if they are just out of the academy and Kirk is on the Enterprise, what about April? What about Pike? If they aren't the capitans first, we lose "The Cage" and "The Menagerie parts I and II", you can't just change Characters and Plot lines that have changed Sci-Fi and T.V. in general for the better. Look at DS9, only a little like TOS, but still an amazing show, because it keeps the themes and (huge) story arcs of TOS. It doesn't try and change Star Trek, just show another side to it.
Enterprise didn't fail because it tried to show what happened before Kirk, it failed (epicly) because of poor writing and changing the story lines, which I'm afraid this movie will do. Star Trek may become cool, people may go around flashing the Vulcan Salute, but will it be worth it? It'll be cool to say I was a fan before it was cool, but in the end... in the final analysis, will losing what makes Star Trek great be worth it getting the popularity it deserves? If Hollywood views it as okay to reboot things that have survived for 40 years with out one, God help us all for what may come... expect a Godfather reboot in 2013, a GoodFellas reinvisioning in 2014, who knows where it'll end...
