I have to admit that I have not been a fan of Star Trek for a long time. Every new glimpse of director J. J. Abrams reboot of the franchise leaves more unsure if my opinion will change. Sure the new trailer looks exciting and we get a glimpse of the first meeting between the futrure James T. Kirk and Dr. Leonard McCoy, but I still don’t think there is anything deeper to the movie than just a fun-filled overload of visual effects. I really want a good story here that comments on the human condition, much in the way the original television series did back in the 1960s. It seems the last time that the franchise was able to deliver that was Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan.
