The relaunch of the classic TV-Series is giving as a new story of how things could turn out in the future of our planet. So Trekkies forget everything you knew about Kirk and learn the new facts. The ones you didn’t know about the story I’m sure you had a great time.

I have seen all the episodes of Star Trek The Next Generation, Deep Space 9 and Voyager and I don’t know if I am a Trekkie, but I really enjoyed it. The movie is an adrenaline pump. The story has huge black holes, but who cares when you have fighting, explosions, starships and lots of well made special-fx.

From the time of the first trailers and photos that where presented to the eager audience I was wondering how did such a young person became a captain of one of the largest starships of the Federation. Now I know. You have to know the right person to put you in the right place. Life is not fair. Kirk is the only person in every military history of any country in any galaxy who did not finish training and became a captain without been a Lieutenant or Commander or Lieutenant Commander whatever. So forget being a good and honest guy. Cheat your way to the top.

Also it is a known fact to Trekkies that Vulkans have a condition that is called Pon Far. According to that they feel uncontrollably horny and they need to mate, no questions asked. But in this movie Spock, who is the world’s most famous Vulkan, has a girlfriend. Poor Uhura! (Yes, that’s her!) You must be the worlds most patient (stupid) person in the world. It is a difficult decision to know, as a human, that you are going to have sex every seven years. Isn’t a relationship between a man and woman without sex called friendship?
