STAAAAR TREKKKKKK!!!!!

Unspoilery: It was good. You should see it. As in the original, McCoy and Spock were my favorites.

NOT A PREQUEL OR RELAUNCH BUT ALTERNATE TIMELINE OMG GENIUS. I AM SO HAPPY. I wish we had learned that earlier in the movie, before I worked up a righteous rage about Vulcan being destroyed, Spock's mom (WINONA RYDER WTF) dying, etc. BUT. AWESOMMMME.

I am one of the people annoyed by the alternate timeline. So there's (practically) no Vulcans and no Romulans by the time we get to TNG? Picard never gets to see 4 lights? WTF.

Also, Leonard Nimoy seemed way to happy-go-lucky at the end of the film. So the planet's gone and 6 bil of us are dead, but no worries, we're building a colony!

*ahem* Actually I really liked the movie :DDD

You are the first person I've seen who had the same reaction as me. WTF was with Old!Spock at the end!

He was taking qualudes maybe?

I maintain that he was happy at seeing young Kirk. I mean, compare Chris Pine to Shatner. Who WOULDN'T be happy about seeing that difference? Also, obvs they had mansexing in the ice cave (uh, yes, Spock went through Pon Farr on that ice planet within the five minutes before they had to go save the Enterprise...). lolll.

annoyed by it? But it allows the old stuff to coexist with the new stuff! If this was a straight-up relaunch/reboot, I'd be annoyed by that, but instead I'm not.

And old!Spock was happy because he had once again gazed upon young, spunky Kirk instead of old busted Kirk. His heart was aflutter with feeling! The destruction of his planet did not matter, not in the face of being confronted with his young love! OBVIOUSLY. (Or, uh, that's how I justified it anyway.)

How are they co-existing?

I LOVED IT. IT WAS FANTASTIC.

I WANT TO SEE PICTURES OF YOUR COSTUME.

ALSO DID YOU NOTICE KIRK'S MAMA WAS DR. CAMERON FROM HOUSE.

BECAUSE SHE TOTALLY WAS.

I NOTICED THIS AND CRIED LIKE A BABY AS HIS DADDY DIED.


YAY! I liked it too :D

I don't have any pictures. :(

But hopefully I will! It's also my Halloween costume, so if at no other time~!

And yes, I saw that. I was like, WTF CAMERON!???! loll. When they were wheeling her out of sickbay, I was all, why's Cameron the patient and not the doctor? WHYYYYYYYYY?

YAY HALLOWEEN

I actually didn't notice until she'd already given birth, and then I was like, "HEY!!!!!!!!!!!" I have no idea how I didn't catch it sooner, especially since we had been watching House on DVD earlier that very day.
