I don’t spend a lot of time on the well-worn issues–lens flares, red matter, silly coincidences, Khan’s British now, using the transporter to go across the galaxy. Instead, I talk about my own issues not only with the two movies Abrams made, but also with Trekkies’ reaction to it, and with the creative team’s counter-reaction, which lead me to conclude that Trekkies’ relationship to their franchise has become at least a little dysfunctional.
I’ll be looking at the other Trek movies in their turn, but I kind of wanted to start at the end. Next up: Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
