I’m not convinced, but I am hopeful.
What made Star Trek special was due in (very) large part to Roddenberry’s vision. With his passing, I am not sure that there is anyone out there who can put that vision on screen again.
I saw the trailer for the movie and it seems like it is going to be just another average special effects action fest with ‘Star Trek’ tacked on as a weak theme for the events – but, who knows, I may be pleasantly surprised.
Regardless, I will be there, waiting in line for hours, for the Midnight showing.
I am not a Trekkie but saw the preview the other day and I am very interested in seeing it. I love almost everything JJ Abrams has done though.
Considering that every other Star Trek movie is good, is this due to be a good one or a bad one? I’ve lost count.
This Star Trek movie would be number 11.
I like J.J. Abrams work.
Live Long and Prosper

The good ones are even-numbered (exception being Star Trek: Insurrection, which was #9).
Here I thought I was the only Trek fan in the LC-MS.
Yet again Star Trek will attempt to copy what Star Wars has already done years ago, but with much less money, one quarter of the time, and half of the imagination. They should leave the noble work of coming up with disappointing sci-fi prequels to the experts.
George Lucas =P
