I liked the new Star Trek as a movie on it's own, but it's a Star Trek blasphemy. They totally destroyed the previous Star Trek legacy. It barely has links, other than character names. It's a dumbed down mindless explosion fest.

I've watched most star trek shows (never saw enterprise) and all the movies, but I wouldn't say I was a rabid fan. I don't even particularly remember the 2009 movie all that well other than it had time travel and young star trek characters (and that I enjoyed it.) What specifically did they destroy? I'm not trying to argue; I'm just curious.

Well for one thing it lacks the grandiose ideas that defined Star Trek, things like a vision of a united humanity, universal Altruism, the search for knowledge, and all the idealistic goodies that defined Rodenberry's vision. Its a utopia, and the movie doesnt even touch on those things. The blatant Nokia commercial almost made me want to throw up.

Dont get me wrong, its an enjoyable movie and I sort of thought it introduced the cast quite well but I was hoping on a more Star Trekky feel which just wasnt there.
