Speaking as a non-Trekkie, I had a lot of fun watching this movie. Good cast, fun sets (Love the juxtaposition of the old with the new in Idaho, the Vulcan school…) and great fight sequences. That being said, I did have to suspend disbelief as Mr. Abrams favorite plot device unfolded here as well (as well as it does in Lost that is). Yes, I am talking about time travel, Abrams must love that crap. It does give him carte blanche to basically re-write the history and mythology of Star Trek in future movies I guess. Star Trek works great as an adventure movie, but I would not go looking for some deep and layered Sci-Fi film.
