J.J. Abrams and Star Trek… the Love and Hate of It

Longtime readers may recall my post about the new Star Trek movie from March of last year. Well, it only took a year, but I finally got to see which of my suggestions my good buddy J.J. took. Here is a quick review:

Kirk Defeats the Kobayashi Maru Scenario — We finally got to see Kirk do this. Very cool. Thumbs up Mr. Abrams!

Christopher Pike Does The Cage — No mention of Captain Pike’s mission to Talos IV. Looks like most of the movie took place prior to that mission.

Robert April Does Something Cool — Not even a MENTION of Robert April. In fact, they suggest that Christopher Pike is Enterprise’s first commander. Thumbs down Abrams!

Kirk Gets Harassed by Sean Finnegan — They didn’t do it. What the *#@!? Dude, you so should have had Sean Finnegan play a prank on Kirk. That they didn’t do this I’m probably most disappointed about.

Guinan Works the Local Bar — They didn’t do it, but that’s okay.

Hard core Trek fans will find plenty to be disappointed by, but in the end it was really cool movie. Us Trek geeks will just have to accept that Trek history is no longer what we thought it was.
