    Even for an old trekkie like me this new version of Star Trek was not a disappointment. It ROCKED!!!

    It started off in space and with a blast! After a few minutes of sadness, as the plot played out, I waited for the familiar music, the theme song but it didn't come. Not in fact until the very end along with the credits. Those who left the movie before the credits totally missed the music. I enjoyed the updated version of the original theme. 

    There were quite a few delightful surprises in this movie. I especially enjoyed watching the fleshing out of the relationships and seeing how Captain Kirk and his crew members first met. Zachary Quinto's portrail of Spock completely blew me away. Even as a teenager Spock was my idol. And seeing his aged "real deal" in this new movie, well let's just say I have no complaints. His relationship with Uhura was a delight. I got a real kick out of the early versions of Checkov, Scotty and Sulu. Their characters were played brilliantly.

    There were aha! moments, "no way" moments and OMG! moments. A couple of times I wanted to shout out my approval but I remembered where I was and restrained myself.  :)

    Great job JJ Abrahms and kudos to every one who had a hand in this. This movie was originally set for release in 2008. I'm glad they took the time to do it right. It was well worth the wait. I'm trying not to give any spoilers here. We can do that later. Who else has seen it?
