I dunno I've never really been a fan of star trek, besides watching the one episode were he fights the monster in 1:09, actually really good episode...but I do have a friend who is a die hard, and he wasn't at all interested in watching the movie...I think i was more into watching it...but it seemed like from the previews that it was like the guy at 0:29 said, if i wanted to watch young attractive people doing cool things I'd go watch sports, lol, ahhhh still this was hilarious to watch, especially the broadcasters.

I just watched this film, and i was pleasantly surprised. That being said, maybe it was directed for the normal folk not the die hard fans.

What do you expect??

If you made a Star Trek movie that was for the FANS and only FANS would wanna go see it, the movie wouldn't bring in any money... Simple as that. Movies are expensive nowadays and thats just the way it is.

Why can star trek not be for anyone? So what i understand is that the fans are mad at the people who haven't watched ALL star trek and speak klingon who watch this movie. which might actually go and make people interested in star trek...

Whats there to be so pissed about fans?

I'm a fan of Star Trek... thou there's fans who are 'fundamentalists'. I once assumed Star Trek fans like myself being openminded (could be terribly wrong about myself) But with time seen some that are - in lack of other words - fundamentalistic. And besides: this is Onion News Network! As serious as Donald Duck being a newsanchor at Ducksburg local TV. I've watched the vid over and over again and read the text at the bottom of the screen ... got lots of laughs :D :D - - - By the way: Great Movie! Just have to buy the DVD ... :) :)

i think they confused star wars for star trek there. Ive not watched a huge ammount of star trek but i dont remember many drawn out diplomatic parts. The star trek actors always made me cringe, chief o brien and major kira hurt my brain when they talk:(

I have watched almost all the old star Trek shows (dont wanna lie maybe missed one while watching Gilligan's Island) and that being said. This was definatly a flashy videogame style that was not unentertaining. I liked it. Could it have been better .. probably. Will I watch a sequel .. HELL YES!. I think it has alot of potential. I do miss the old Bones, Kirk, Checkovf, Spock, Scotty , Kirk and the cougar Auora.

I love it that they had an Ensign go help blow up the driller and of course got wacked lol. You never wanted to be the extra help on the patrol. HAHA! Come on peeps its different peeps and they will have to forge thier own idenity I suppose.

I dont belive the Bones character suits him... Bones was ANUAL retentive not like this haplas hippie healer. He was more methodical. I sometimes thought Bones was the human version of Spock to an extent. One was master of Science the other medicine.

I liked how they gave more role to Checkov and Auora. Scotty seemed like the best match. Spock ... well I didnt feel it. Spock was always like Spock... remember the show "IN SEarch of" he was like that all the time.

Kirk well its hard to over act as good as WIlle did. God hes was so fuunty back on the tv shows. At recess we made comunicators out of note book paper and they could flipout with colored crayon buttons. We made phazers and had alot of fun. Of course the girls in class were the evil aliens we ploted to round up and send them back to Starfleet. They loved to be chased and seemed a little miffed when we put them in the invisible holding cell and left them.

Man o man the good ole days when instead of loafing around on computers .. We caught a quick show before dad got home to watch the news then went outside to make up our own games.

But heck what do I know.

::You are all idiots. Star Trek was a great movie. It was filled with action and just what exactly the Star Trek community needed. They aren't into the crap of tolerance when they are young in the federation. Where are you watching your shows. So what the hell is with you. If you were true Trekkies you would also know they are romulans and not Klingons if you make a parody, get it right. You people are so stupid to even joke about a great movie like Star Trek. I have been watching since I was little and I consider myself a true Star Trek fan. Of course I'm not a retard that goes around in costume and looks like a jerk. I just happen to truely love the shows. Generations, Enterprise, Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Star Trek with William Shattner. You jokers suck and I hope that you never again get to put your tragic eyes on another Star Trek anything. You are losers who should be sent off to the world of Q. By the way number 11 is Urhura. Also Number 11 balonsolos Karl Urban was perfect for the role of Bones. He did a great job and they were still young in their careers in the federation. You're an idiot too. By the way anal is not spelled anual.

Morons!!! and did you see the people who were Comenting on the movie Fking Loosers who have never had a girlfriend
