Star Trek 2009 in Parallel Universe!
By admin on May 9, 2009 | In Welcome
Star Trek 2009 is in a parallel universe, and owner Paramount pictures, and director J.J. Abrams are very pleased, I'm sure.
Before going into this review, I have to say I liked the movie (so a big thumbs up for sure!). I have no problems with the new cast, they are all very believable, but fortunately being a Trekkie of old variety, and watching the original show (with Kirk, Spock, Uhura) and my Dad at the "age of eight years" (the American television series ran three seasons from 1966 to 1969); a few things are really amiss.
I've made a list of them, one which you can add to as well, simply comment at the end of this blog.
If you know anything about the original series, you'll understand what follows, if you don't, then your a "New Trekkie", that is cool fan. Certainly someone who is younger than myself, and hey that's really OK! Because the Star Trek universe created originally by Gene Roddenberry is all about a positive universe, with a positive outlook. Hence the good guy always wins.
Although, I have to admit being a little confused about the destruction of planet Vulcan, unless you plan on bringing it back?! Some cool scenes there. The rest of the movie is quick editing I've come to expect from Hollywood. But what is up with that "shinny new multi-color glint" I see in a lot of shots, nice but over-done. Some what like I was starring into the red-eye-laser of Locutus of Borg.
Everyone is included, even Winona Ryder is Spock's mom in this movie. This includes supposedly a new bad Romulan named Nero (after the failed Roman emperor, I'm sure) from a parallel original "Prime Spock" universe (as I notice in the closing credits Leonard Nimoy). Real nice touch.
So that you know I'm a fan of Time Travel, my favorite time travel episode is ?The City on The Edge of Forever?. But I have to ask, what the hell is ?Red Matter?!
And how, does that really create a black hole singularity? Inquiring physicists would like know, I'm really sure about that . . . But then I think it's just a movie, another one in fact in the Star Trek Franchise.
Differences between "Original Star Trek Universe" and "New (start) Star Trek 2009 Universe":
Planet Vulcan never destroyed.
Spocks Human Mother never dies on screen, or in series.
New Fact: Spock programming Kobayashi Maru test.
Uhura never had a thing for Spock, that was Nurse Chapel (Bones's original medical assistant).
If anything, she kissed Kirk, not Spock! (often referred to as the first interracial kiss on US television) There is that parallel universe again . . .
