But I still found it kind of shocking that they tossed aside 40 years of movies and books so that they could do their own thing with established and beloved characters.
Personally, I wish they'd made no concessions to continuity whatsoever, jettisoned all the time travel stuff, and just said "FUCK YOU NERDS WE'RE STARTING OVER DEAL WITH IT".
Old Spock and that plotline certainly didn't ruin the movie for me, but I think it would have been better if they weren't burdened by 40 years of insane fandom to appease.
Agreed. I loved the movie to death, but definitely felt the "Time Travel" story line should have been jettisoned.
Anyone else love the moment when Nero appeared to Pike via view screen and said "Hi Christopher, I'm Nero." That made me bust out laughing (in a good way.)
Can't wait for the sequels! Let's hope the sterile nature of what Trek had become doesn't creep it's way back into this new beast...
