I just… don’t like the new star trek movies at all.
The whole reason I love the original series was because of how revolutionary it was with its diverse cast and how the various episodes tackled serious issues that are still relevant today.
The new movies are in many ways even more regressive than the series that aired almost half a century ago and I find that pretty sad.
They’re just your standard action flicks and they simply lack the heart of the original series.
Star Trek represented Roddenberry’s hope for a better future where humanity had finally learned to respect and value eachother’s differences and it was so much more than flashy explosions and space battles.
I can only hope that a new series will handle Star Trek properly but for now I remain very disappointed.
