No spoilers here, or any detailed review … just a recap of what it felt like.  Picture the original series on ‘roids, with sharper edges and no warning labels — what Gene would have wanted if he had bigger space-balls and thought it was possible to pull it off.  The movie started with tear-jerking heroism, and culminated in two hours worth of Roddenberry boners.  Part of me felt plot-raped, and part of me liked the abuse: Alternate reality never hurt so good.

So, no, this isn’t our grandparent’s Star Trek.  And if they boldly go farther in this movie’s course, it will never be the same again.
