I’m not the type of Trekkie that dresses up like a Volcan, Rommulan, or Cardasian wielding vintage collector’s weapons and attending conferences. But I did grow up faithfully watching this beloved TV show and I’m here to tell you that I give JJ Abrams an A+.

Last night I was surprised to find out that the professional networking meeting that I had prepared for is next week, and decided to take advantage of having a babysitter by going to a movie. My choices as a science fiction freak were Terminator Evolution, Wolverine, and of course Star Trek. I almost missed this movie because unlike the first two options I grew up with Star Trek and had strong emotion attachments to this show. I recall the weekly family ritual of gathering by the TV and watching Captain Kirk, Spock, Bones, Ohura, Chekov, Scotty, Sulu, and that one guy who didn’t get a name that always got killed. I smile with nostalgia as I remember my brother and I wondering if there was ANY woman that Captain Kirk wouldn’t kiss. Would he do “it” with a green chick?

Finally with decision made, I sat in my comfortable stadium style movie seat and waited with anticipation. Still nervous when the lights went down I wondered if the characters would be able to invoke there predecessors without being hokey or boring. As a huge fan of Hero’s, and Zachary Quinto’s portrayal of Sylar in particular, I wondered if I would just be watching his current weekly character dressed in a Star Trek suit or would Quinto successfully put aside the sinister stare and mannerism of Sylar and be believable as Spock. Thankfully, he’s Spock all the way.

Straight from the beginning of the movie I was captivated, excited, and mesmerized as if I somehow time traveled back to that young kid who loved to watch Star Trek each and every week. As I sat and watched I nodded in approval as the cast and crew of the USS Enterprise captured each and every nuance from days and episodes past.

“My GOD Jim”.

“Live long and prosper”.

Remember Captain Pike? Remember those yucky slug things that attached to your brain and made you tell the truth? I did! And in case I wasn’t the only one who ever wondered why out of all the women including crew members that Kirk inappropriately made passes at, why did he never mess with Ohura…I thought it was a black thing. And you’re going to find out 

Ok, nuff said because I don’t want to ruin it for you. In short, I really enjoyed the meticulous attention to detail and the homage paid to this American classic. Thanks JJ for making me feel like a kid again!
