Star Trek 2009



Yes I am a total Trekkie. I admit it. I was so enraptured with Star Trek that my posse and I pretended to be the cast. And yes I was Captain Kirk. We were also talking Trek. We were so outrageous about it that the "cool" members of our girl scout troop used us as an example of how geeky can you get. I have to laugh at that now. After all Star Trek is still around and I did get published in the genre. And I wouldn't change my geekdom for anything. It made me who I am today and fed my imagination. I even wrote fan fic before fan fic was cool.

So imagine my excitement at another Trek movie. With a young hot cast who did not fail to give tribute to the original players. The movie was everything I could want and more. Chris Pine was appropriately rebellious yet managed to laugh at himself. Zachary Quinto gave Spock a sexiness that was too die for. I won't give that secret away, lets just say he "smoldered" And the rest of the cast was just perfect. Sulu's tribute to George Takei's fencing scene, Karl Urban channeling Bones (Was anyone else skeptical at that casting decision? I now bow down to whoever made that decision and say awesome!) Uhura's mysteriousness and Chekov's accent were spot on. and Scotty. I couldn't wait to hear him say..."I'm giving her all she's got!"

Please powers that be, tell me there will be more. As for me, I'm seeing it again this week and can't wait for the DVD release. Santa, please put it in my stocking so I can once more sink into Trek bliss.

Can you tell I loved it?

Cindy,

Yes, I can tell you loved the movie. I saw it yesterday. It was AWESOME!!! It answered all the need of a true trekkie and laid a foundation for a new "future" with this new cast.

Can't wait for more . . .

I can't wait to see this movie! When I was younger I ran around trying to get everyone in my neighborhood to play "V"!

OMG, this movie was AWESOME! Every good thing you've heard about it is well deserved. The action, the casting, the special effects, the dialogue...all wonderful.

I was part of the geek crowd who saw STAR TREK at its first showing last Thursday nite at 7 pm.

My daughter brought her boyfriend, who had never seen a Star Trek movie before. My 14-yr-old son went back Friday nite and saw it again with ten of his friends, many of whom were new to star trek.

My 12 year old son is now considering how he would cast the star trek original series characters as dog breeds. (!)

Yep, I'd say I raised the little geeks well, lol.

I totally, totally, TOTALLY loved the movie! It was fabulous, and all the actors were perfectly cast. My kids loved it too. This movie will (hopefully) make a whole new generation of children dream of boldly going where no one has gone before! :)
