The new Star Trek film was released on May 8th (2009) ..May 7th in a few locations. J.J. Abrams has said that he hopes to project an optomistic viw of the future in this film. Personally, I'm looking for an exciting/inticing blend of drama and action, along with a good dose of humor. I saw it today, and will report my review soon. Hopefully, this Trek will meet up with my expectations. I also look forward to reading the reviews of those who see the picture. Does it boldy go where no re-imagined film has gone before?

Here's a tongue and cheak mock news report on the early reactions of trekie fans. It's pretty funny.
Should prove fascinating to see both the original and new Spock in this film, and how Leonard Nimoy's iconic vulcan is fit into the story.
It is said that William Shatner opted out of taking on a role in the film as the scene(s) Abrams had in mind "just didn't feel right". Somehow I get the "feeling" this is just hyped-up showmanship, and that he plans on being in the next film, should this one prove commercially successful. What do you think? And again, I'm anxious to read everyone's reciews.
