Meh. I kind of enjoyed it as an action comedy. Mostly because I've come to accept that JJ Abrams has no respect for logic, internal coherency, plot or the barest shade of discipline in writing. After the lazy mess that was Lost, there's nothing he can do that would shock me in its casual, slovenly disregard.

Well, except one thing. Seru, you forgot the biggest whopper of all, and it was in the first ten minutes. The Enterprise, a starship incapable of atmospheric flight, not only does so, but also has gained the ability to submerge under water. When I saw that, I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if a million nerds scoffed at once and were suddenly contemptuous.
Actually I noticed it but didn't want to end up with 100 things to list.

In Gen1 the Enterprise did enter atmosphere in one episode. However spaceships are airtight, but not proofed against water pressure. When submerged the lower part of the ship would be under intense pressure even if the upper part was near the surface. The seals are designed to keep air pressure inside, not keep water outside. Oh wait, they are FUTURE air seals that can stand up to anything. And the hull metal is FUTURE armor that can withstand extreme water pressure.... but not weapons fire.

Note also that the renegade Starship at the end would have probably broken up when it slammed into Earth's atmosphere. And you'd have had thousands of kinetic energy weapons striking Frisco instead of one big one.

So far we've put about 1000 times more thought into this than JJ Abrams ever did.

At first I was enjoying it up until they revealed that it was just a remake of Wrath of Khan. What a buncha lazy mofos.

At least the chicks were hot.

Wow. You guys are all gigantic nerds.

Have you all gotten jobs at Best Buy and grown neck beards?
