My Take on 2nd Star Trek movie (Spoilers)
Not a review, just some of my impressions.


Chekhov is in way, way, WAY over his head.

Kirk walked right into that trap. I swear, he shoulda been smarter than that.

Why does Kirk have to lead EVERY DAMN AWAY TEAM THERE IS? You've got redshirts! Use them! Here's an idea, flood the target zone with a batallion! AND ARM THEM WITH SOMETHING MORE POWERFUL THAN PISTOLS!

Holy CRAP the Enterprise took a beating. From one of its own, even.

Leonard Nimoy doesn't look a day over 90, which is young for a Vulcan.

Why the hell don't they resolve the Kirk / Carol relationship?

The death scene in the reactor room was classic. Selfless, logical sacrifice to get the ship out of danger.

"KAAAAAAAAAHN!" I'm sorry, this actually cracked me up. Am I the only one who can't take the "NOOOOOoooo!" meme seriously?

I Heart the movie! Enough classic Trek stuff to hold my interest and had me giggling...

The whole reversal thing...dunno...I'll have to see it again Smile

I'd give it a Thumbsup

Like something is brewing and about to begin
Can't put my finger on what lies in store
but I feel what's to happen has happened before...

I haven't seen it, yet, but I'll probably like it regardless. I remember enjoying this cast's performance in the last one more than I did Shatner's & Nimoy's in The Voyage Home! Maybe it's just because I couldn't stand 4. Can't wait to see the new one!

.... no one asked WHICH Star Trek movie I was talking about. I gotta be less subtle in my trolling. Weeping

RE: My Take on 2nd Star Trek movie (Spoilers)
I thought it was a really fun movie with the character richness that we've come to expect. A couple issues that I have:

1) With the vastness of the entire Star Trek universe to draw from or build onto, why did they choose to revisit the Kirk v. Kahn premise again? While this is a completely different initial meeting for these two than the episode Space Seed was, I find it hard to believe that this was the only idea on the table.

2) When the Enterprise was in free-fall through Earth's atmosphere and the anti-gravity was offline, why was everything/everybody falling and running on walls and such? It's in free-fall. Everyone inside would float around as if there were no gravity at all. Duh.

I think the reason was the inertial dampemers were cutting in and out. Think of the momentum of the crashing ship being turned into a sudden motion inside the ship. I guess.
