Star Trek 11

So the first official trailer for the new Star Trek film, Star Trek 11 (Watch it here) has been released. It has been a long time since I’ve blogged about Star Trek, 3 years in fact. Not since the last Star Trek series ended.

My feelings are mixed in regards to the new movie. The trailer certainly makes the story look cool, however if you even some cursory research on the plot it goes downhill from there. Apparently the movie is about time travel, which has me worried. Time travel is the absolute fall back plot device in the Sci-Fi genre. Time travel has been done effectively by Star Trek. The TNG series finale used it very well and is still a classic episode. The DS9 two-parter called "Past Tense" also used time travel effectively. The reason I worry now though is that the first movie in the “new age” of Star Trek and they pulled out time travel on their first try.

From my last post on the finale of Enterprise, I said Star Trek needed some time off and new people behind it. Both of which has happened now, the only question is will they screw it up or not. I will of course go see the movie regardless and am holding back major judgment until I see it. As long as Star Trek doesn’t go all OC in space like Stargate is headed, I won’t be exceptionally disappointed.
