Gotta tell ya, sdcigar....I agree with you a bit, but had some other complaints.
Now...you DO reallize that the ntroduction of Nero (terrible villian name!) altered the timeline...which was intent of writers. Hence, new concepts
to mine, I suppose.
Opening sequence: Wasn't Kirk's brother Ben in TOS his older
brother?? SO, he would exist before
nero changed time, right??
I hated how they constantly referred to the Shuttles' departure as "take-off", instead of 'launch'. Oh, and shuttles with clear plastic panels
hanging down, like in a grocery store freezer section!! What was up with that? Speaking of that...I really, really disliked most of the interior
The script was just riddled with clumsy dialogue. AND completely superfluous sequences...the Corvette scene??? Nothing but product placement for
The snowy planet....just more unneeded fake "Danger" for Kirk, and more work for CGI artists....and the big red creature tossed aside a larger piece
of food, one indigenous to its planet, just to chase Kirk?!? Come on!
Oh...'lightning' in space?? AND only the intriped cadet Kirk could be able to convince everyone???
I could go on and on....but the ending was the most unsatisfying part. AND illogical and scientifically flawed....since IF the baddies ship blew up
and turned into a black hole anywhere near the Earth (it WAS drilling, remember?) then it would still be a danger to the planet!!
I'm glad it made a lot of money....but the writing really disappointed me...
