[I have no idea how something that started as a silly post turned out to be such a lengthy beast, but it was fun to write. A coupl’a warnings: 1) if you don’t give two tribbles about Star Trek, best to just skip this post entirely and 2) there be spoilers ahead!]
I gave myself a little treat Saturday and went out to see the latest Star Trek flick, Into Darkness. (Hey, I figure I won’t be looking for work forever, right? Right? I’m going to assume the sound of crickets I’m hearing is the sound of support. Yep. ‘Movin on.)
It was good, at least as far as a) Star Trek films and b) silly summer popcorn films are concerned. It was fun, and I didn’t feel like I’d mis-spent my money or gotten ripped-off: I was entertained for two hours, which is what I expect for my (bargain matinee) dollars.
But, I wondered, was it Star Trek?
