When I was 7, the first season of Star Trek was on TV. Except we only had two channels, and Star Trek was on the third one. The next season, they boosted the power and I watched season two with poor reception, and loved it. Of course, by now, I've seen all the original episodes multiple times. And most of the movies and spin-off TV series. I have to say, until today, none of them were as good as the original series for me. CBS/Paramount has changed that.
I saw the new movie today, and am ready for any and all sequels and/or TV shows with this cast. They did a perfect job of transitioning the old crew into the new in a believable way, and kept their personalities intact. I could see this movie starting an entire new generation of fans.
Action, humor, plot, it was all great! If you haven't seen it, you should!
