I have seen it, and it is good. It breaks the odd-even theory, which is good... considering the tripe that was Nemesis. Do I think it's the best ever? No. I think Khan still reigns. But on any given day, I'd be tossing this around as number two or three, depending on my mood.

No spoilers in this post. I need to chew on thoughts for a while.

But yes, it's very enjoyable. If you enjoy Trek, breathe easy.

My mom is dying to see this, because she LOVES the original series and she's so excited that it's a prequel to it. I said I'd consider going with her...would I be completely confused going in, having never seen the show before?

I can't fathom not having seen the show. Really, truly. Have you at least seen the movies?

It's a tough question to answer because I can't fathom anyone who wouldn't have seen at least enough Trek to know the characters. I suppose no, you won't be that confused. In many ways, this is a fresh start.

Saying it's a prequel is not quite accurate, I might add.

I haven't :( I know, I'm so far out of the loop LOL. I'm not a big sci-fi person, though I love Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (don't know if you'd call that sci-fi lol) and I liked the Doctor Who stuff you showed me. I do know the characters names and everything and my mom tried explaining some of it.

Only place I saw Star Trek, of all places, was my history class last semester, when my professor had us watch a clip of the first interracial kiss on tv!

I won't ask why it isn't quite accurate for spoiler reasons lol.
