Star Trek

Wow! What a fantastic reinvention! The new reworked version of Star Trek pays respect to the classic version, but pushes it into the future at warp speed. Gone are the musings of long-term Starfleet bastions such as Piccard, Sisko and Janeway. In their place is a young, eager and dynamic crew.

I was a little apprehensive that J.J. Abrams had been named director for this latest film in the Star Trek franchise. There's no doubting that he has vision and a creative bent (Alias, Lost, Cloverfield), but there is something undefinable missing in a lot of his work - some sense of conclusion perhaps. But Abrams is not the writer for this film - that burden falls to Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, both of Transformers fame.

Dedicated Trekkies (myself included) will love this rockfest, high-octane version and it should bring a whole new generation of young fans to the Star Trek series.
