Star Trek

Jon took me to see the new Star Trek film.

It did not disappoint. JJ Abrams seemed to go out of his way to get the Star Trek lore accurate and what wasn't could be explained away by one of the premises of the film.

I'll wait until more people have seen it before I start in on the spoilers. It's still a little too new.

I will say this. The casting is great - especially for McCoy. The story is great. The Leonard Nimoy cameo was well thought out and worked well within the context of the story. The special effects are terrific.

Look for the guy in the red shirt.

Do you think non-fans would like it, and understand it?

Yes. They would be able to follow it. Of course, if you're a fan, you'll enjoy it even more.
