Yesterday I went to see the new Star Trek. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s about as good a series reboot as you can hope for. The casting was spot-on and the story was decent. I thought it started off a lot stronger than it finished, and the plot did strain credulity at times, but that didn’t make a huge difference. Star Trek has never been hard sci-fi, it’s always been character-driven, and this story certainly was. Hopefully this means a rebirth of the franchise and more entertainment in the future.
