I have to come out and say it. I am not knowledgeable of the show, “Star Trek.” I don’t think I’ve ever seen a whole episode of the TV show. When I was little, I thought the character who wore the cool glittering band around his eyes was dreamy but that’s the extent of my “Star Trek” experience.
So when I went to watch the movie, I wasn’t too sure what to expect. I have heard some chatter from people with far more know-how about the TV show that the movie wasn’t quite loyal to all the details of the original story.
After watching the movie, I say details, shmetails. Even if the movie doesn’t follow all the facts, I believe it still captures the TV show’s imaginative spirit and yearn for adventure in far away worlds.
It also starts on a fresh slate. You get to see Spock (Zachary Quinto) and Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) as children, watch them get acquainted with one another and climb aboard the Starship Enterprise, which looks pretty sleek and snazzy, for the first time.
In the movie, things are not well in space. At the beginning of the film, one of Earth’s spaceships along with its captain, Kirk’s father, Capt. George Kirk, is destroyed by an ominous looking vessel.
