Love it or hate it, the Re-imagined Star Trek is here to stay. Many Trek fans know, or soon will know, that the next movie featuring the cast of the Re-Imagined Star Trek will soon be here with the uber-psionic Gary Mitchell as the big bad evil guy. I’ll go out on a limb and say that I enjoyed the new Trek. I know many fans find it distasteful, what with the change to the timeline, the freakishly large Enterprise, Kirk going from cadet to captain in a few days time, not to mention the destruction of the planet Vulcan. I’ll admit, those things bother me a bit too. But that’s good. We need change and evolution in our lives if we are to grow and live. The status quo and more of the same don’t work, it always leads to stagnation and ennui in both our personal lives and in our media. Sure the changes may be unpleasant, even unpalatable, but just look at the facts: Star Trek is likely more popular now than it has ever been in its history.
Whether they are cranking out Trek in the movies, in novels, in comic books, it’s all good to me, and I hope for you.
So without further ado, I present to you the Starfleet Constitution-class (alternate) Enterprise from the 2009 movie!
