Don’t get me wrong, I think this movie looks good.  I just don’t know if it looks like a Star Trek movie to me.  Certainly the characters are there— and an attempt has apparently been made to link the film to its predacessors via Eric Bana‘s time-travelling Romulan character from The Next Generation continuity.  But it doesn’t really feel like Star Trek to me yet, and maybe it won’t.  I grew up on TOS, TNG and DS9, and everything that made those series great seems to have gone out the window, and a more generic Sci-Fi action-adventure has taken its place.
