Pardon me, for I am not a history major that must analyze the movie for consistency. I thought it was fun! I thought the plot line was strong (as compared to other star trek flops). The change in history is supportable with the fact that history was disrupted (and changed) by the appearance of the Romulan mining ship. Or one could choose to believe it is an alternate reality. Either way works for me. I loved the copying of the original characters and thought that they all did a decent job in their characterization.

I will give you your one big plot hole: "Oh, and if this guy is so broken up about the loss of his home world, why doesn’t he warn them now that he has gone back in history 100 years and has all kinds of real nifty new knowledge for them?" However, I didn't really think about it during the action because I was enjoying the movie and it's twists.

I really enjoyed it, as did my 17 year old son (who never saw a single original series episode) and my wife.


I added your blog to bookmarks. And i'll read your articles more often!


Hey Unc,
I loved the movie, simply because I am easy to please. I understand there was a lot missing/added that wasn't true to the original, and didn't even make total sense, but I still enjoyed it. I think the strongest performance was the young Spock - he did a fantastic job of staying true to his character. Leonard Nimoy seemed pleased too. :) I totally get where you're coming from, but I'll watch anything. :) Love you!
