Let Talk Star Trek
Logan admits "The buzz on the trailer wasn't great" confirming what Simon Pegg said on December 17 2015.
“I didn’t love it because I know there’s a lot more to the film. There’s a lot more story, a lot more character stuff, and a lot more what I would call Star Trek stuff.”
Star Treks insider also says "People were kind of sniping at the trailer but I got to say I like Justin Lin, I like the fast and the furious movies and I like the new reboot that sounded more commercial? (skip ahead to 1:07 and replay) Apparently Logan is researching an article for Wired Magazine so hopefully sensational Star Trek vibrations are on the way.

So heres the thing: Soon Star Trek fans will have a trilogy of Star Trek JJ Abrams-verse movies. The first one, Star Trek 2009 was kind of cool. Fascinating interplay with a younger crew, Kirk, Spock, Bones and spicey hanky panky with Uhura generated a lot of interest. The bar room fist fight over who gets Uhura got Kirk busted up real good with Admiral Christopher Pike saving the day.
Star Trek into Darkness is a different animal which has less story but more roller coaster action, explosions, death and amazingly generated $467 million dollars worldwide. You may recall STID sent fans on a wild goose chase over the movies villain, rumoured to be John Harrison. Even Alice Eve rowed in on the action with denials, "No he's not Khan!!!" Remember???
Looking back the original Star Trek movies like the Wrath of Khan, the Voyage Home and First Contact have in my book real spirit with stronger character melodrama credited with saving the original franchise created by Gene Roddenberry.
The real kicker is Star Trek TWOK won 2 Saturn Awards for best actor and best direction. You'll never believe who won best actor! I nearly died laughing when I found out.
What do you say trekkers? Is Star Trek Beyonds trailer too much like its predecessor - Star Trek Into Darkness? Could this be why fans are squabbling over star Trek Beyond's Trailer 1? Which is your favorite Star Trek movie? Do you remember Alice Eve saying "No he's not Khan!" Do you want to see our Gorn challenger, William Shatner duelling in Star Trek Beyond?
Today is the A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal.
"Those of us with themes are revealing them today." 2016 marks my sixth year for Aprils A to Z blogfest. Many of you will know my Science Fiction themes vary from previous years. For this years theme I'm choosing Star Trek Monsters, Lifeforms, BEM, Tribbles or anything which moves and looks remotely alien in appearance.
