Yes I am a Trekkie! And I was worried intially that this new movie would spoil it for me.   You see I grew up watching Star Trek and was amazed at the insights into the future by Gene Roddenberry and at the same time developed a fondness for the characters he created.   Speaking of insights….in one of the episodes of Star Trek in the early 60s you can see the initial concept of the Fax machine when Kirk receives an ‘incoming message’ and a piece of paper come through some kind of machine!

J.J. Abrams does us proud and although the movie is not without flaw, it is quite close to perfect for me!  The casts were incredibly well chosen and did a wonderful job! 

In you were never a fan before, this movie might just change that and you’ll boldly go where you’ve never before!
