Trek Wars

Well, if you haven’t seen it, a trailer for the next Star Trek movie has hit. Now, I wasn’t a fan of the first Abrams helmed Trek movie, but it did what it was supposed to: strip Trek of anything that really mattered, gloss over a lot of bad writing with a lot of pretty pictures, and make a ton of money. The second one largely succeeded at this, too, except Abrams had a more difficult time covering for the guys handing him the script.

Well, now Abrams is filming the scifi series he wanted to be filming all along, we’re still stuck with a crappy writer, and we get the heroin fueled editing and screen shots of The Fast and the Furious.

Please, just take Star Trek out behind the lot and put a bullet in its head. They are just raping the corpse of the scifi series created by Gene Roddenberry, removing anything remotely Trek beyond the character names and cramming as much Michael Bay wanna be fluff in it as humanly possible, hoping enough people go to it by mistake or as a second (or third) choice when what they wanted to see was sold out, that they can make their money back.

If you truly enjoy Trek, go and support Star Trek Renegades. It isn’t as sharp and shiny as these movies, but they’re unlikely to be half as hollow and soulless.
