Finally Saw Star Trek  
I comfort myself with the reminder that, in my personal reality, nothing after Wrath of Khan ever really happened. Therefore, this is clearly nothing but a dream within a dream.

It's worse that that:

Spoiler Space, just in case.

At this point, everything beyond Enterprise has been butterflied away, unless the Time Cops can pull off several miracles.

On the whole, though, I rather liked it. The funniest thing to me was the realization that, if this Kirk grows into the one we know, Shatner's Kirk had actually matured and mellowed when we first met him.

I loved it, actually. I have a broad taste. Also, I prefer the Star Trek books, I think the best (and some of the worst) stories are in the books. Andrew J. Robinson's A Stitch In Time is filkworthy. I never had a problem with multiple interpretations of Star Trek and the events in it.

My litmus test is Spock. I love the Nimoy Spock and I love my original Vulcans. The book Spocks World is a regular re-read for me. The only thing I was anxious about beforehand was the revised Spock. Not caring about spoilers (a good movie can't be spoiled) I tried to find out as much as possible before viewing. I tried to read to book first but there was a delivery delay, so the IMDB synopsis had to do. From what I read I thought Spock was being turned into an action hero. I was very glad that they made him in a character that has a more dynamic balance between his earth and vulcan origins. I love both versions. And Nimoy gave it the thumbs up, nuff said :-)
