I know I'm looking forward to it far more than I am to Paramount's planned live action GI Joe film (while I appreciate GI Joe, I don't think the liberties taken will do credit to the Marvel series and their making GI Joe an INTERNATIONAL team?!?) .
Why? Its set in Kirk's era. OK, so the crew has been recast, but that's to be expected. There's no way we can reassemble the entire original crew together again with the passing of DeForest Kelley & James Doohan.
Still, Kirk -along with Archer's- era , for me, was the best time for Trek. TNG may be a Utopia, but it was too complacent & overly dependent of diplomacy to & conferences to resolve situations. Kirk took immediate action and lived with the consequences of what he did. Plus, from what I saw on the wikipedia, it'll involve a Klingons & Romulans. Of course, I hope to see cameos from Enterprise and perhaps we'll see Janice Rand 's character as part of the crew again. (They should've ditched Nurse Chapel & stuck to Rand)
ST XI has real potential to be a real action oriented film that should be equal the classic series. Can't wait to see it.
