doomfistinc: Most of the die hard fans don't want what Abrams thinks Trek should be.
doomfistinc: As far as I remember, Kirk was allowed to be Kirk because he was out there exploring the unknown sectors of the galaxy.

RobSeace: doomfistinc: As far as I remember, Kirk was allowed to be Kirk because he was out there exploring the unknown sectors of the galaxy.True, but it doesn't change the fact that most of the time, he was breaking rules and being a "miscreant"... So, what we've seen of the movie Kirk so far hardly seems too out of character...As for Spock, he fought with his human side constantly, but he never let it get the best of him, and certainly never allowed rage to flow through into the open.Well, unless he happened to be in Pon Farr, of course... Or, under the influence of alien happy-spores and being called a half-breed by Kirk... ;-)Look, I thought that bit from the trailer looked out of place and strange, too... But, I have no clue what the context is... Maybe he's high on more spores at the time, or something? Who the hell knows... Why not wait and see what actually happens in the movie itself, instead of just jumping to conclusions based on a trailer? *shrug*Also, I never saw ANYTHING that said after he was "reborn" that all of his previous experiences and memories were erased.Did you miss Star Trek IV? There were lots of references in that about how spotty his memory of his former life was... "You used to call me Jim, don't you remember?" "It would be improper to refer to you as Jim while you're in command." "I don't mean lie, but exaggerate! You used to do it... Can't you remember?" "The hell I can't." And, so on... Certainly not ALL his memories were erased, but it was certainly spotty...
Your_Huckleberry: But Insurrection was better than people admit and there was good episodes of Enterprise.
doomfistinc: Honestly, dude. I gave up after they released one too many movies.
cxjohn: I agree, forget this reboot stuff and do the porn alternatives. The voice of the computer could be SOOOO much fun to write narrative for (and then have her break into cheesy porn music).

Confabulat: doomfistinc: As for Spock, he fought with his human side constantly, but he never let it get the best of him, and certainly never allowed rage to flow through into the open.Well if you knew your Star Trek lore like you claimed you did, you'd know that in the original pilot, when we see Spock serving under Captain Pike, he's a very different character--he laughs, smiles, pats people on the back, etc.The original pilot is considered Star Trek canon.Therefore we know Spock was much more "human" acting when he was younger. This movie features a young Spock, so therefore he should act the way the character has been written.In other words, they'd be breaking canon if they showed Spock as another OTHER than emotional.
smerfnablin: the only thing that concerns me is how many reboots/reloads they are doingbatman was incredible to do this to, star trek? i dont knowIt sets a bad precedent...What are they going to reboot next? Superman?
Confabulat: doomfistinc: Honestly, dude. I gave up after they released one too many movies.You mean after all your epic posts about how you're a Trek purist, this movie spits on everything that comes before, yadda yadda yadda, you're now saying you never even made it to the FOURTH DAMN MOVIE?Wow, you're truly the go-to guy for Trek wisdom.
doomfistinc: I got my lulz out of that. Go ahead and pretend that knowing everything about star trek makes you better than some guy you will never meet. I simply enjoy the series. GDIAF
Sylvia_Bandersnatch: I've got a bad feeling about this.
