I just got home from the new Star Trek movie.
I believe that Gene Roddenberry is "rolling over in his grave" ~ which is actually in space; that's where is ashes were "buried." His vision of the future was about discovery and learning and being better humans than we'd every been before.
They totally "star wars-ed" the movie. It was not Star Trek. Seriously - a bar with aliens?! And it was so incredibly violent that I watched much of it through my fingers. I was offended by the violence and by the complete turning away from the original purpose and feeling behind Star Trek.
So disappointing . . .
