The movie is fantastic in every way. It’s a great movie in its own right and starts the Enterprise crew fresh. For this Trek fan, it was exactly what I needed from the franchise. A paraphrased conversation with my sister-in-law summed it up best:
Rebecca: “The whole time I was thinking ‘I’m watching Star Trek! This is so great!'”
Me: “The best part is that the whole time movie is pointing back at you, saying ‘I know!'”
Welcome back, Star Trek. We missed you.
(Oh, and how awesome is it that they brought back the classic logotype?)
