The Holy Star Trek Canon
Because most Star Trek fans are the biggest whiners this side of a wheel of Brie, I've overheard various rants about how the new film by J.J. Abrams and his crack team of writers (or team of writers on crack) violates the continuity established by the original series concerning Kirk and Spock's early relationship.
Most of the bitching claims that Kirk and Spock did not know each other prior to serving aboard the Enterprise. Others are going bat-shit crazy over the casting with droll fare like, "How dare they not cast a Scottish actor as Scotty??!!"
I've adopted a wait-and-see approach until I either a) see the final shooting script, or b) see the film (shocking, I know). While I wish my fellow Trek fans would do the same, that would rob them of their chance to engage (pardon the pun) in pissing matches over who is the bigger fan.
So, folks who read this blog, I ask you:
What problems, if any, do you have with Star Trek XI?
Feel free to use the comments link below to sound off.
