Awesome. You will either love the show or hate it. Love/hate relationship for me

Also saw 21 Jump Street and Hunger Games. Both good movie

The new Star Trek is awesome, and that's coming from someone who isn't even an ST fan.

If you were, you wouldn't like it that much.

Even if you are NOT a Star Trek fan, you'd be scratching your head about Nero, the villain. What was he doing for 25 years while Kirk grows up? Don't warn his homeworld in advance, don't sell his ship's awesome tech for money, nothing.

I finally know what fans of the old BSG felt when the new series came out. Yes, the new movie is shinier, and arguable better than the old series, but we just don't like it as much, if at all.

My favorite thing about the new universe is that there's a built in out. If Spock knew that his mother and the planet Vulcan survived in the alternate (original) timeline, don't you think he'd want to restore it?

The new BSG has no time line connection with the old one. There are references and cameos but the reboot Star Trek is in a parallel universe caused by something from the Prime universe which doesn't make sense. There's a whole agency in the future dedicated to correcting the timeline if it gets screwed up this badly.

Ah, but what if Temporal Investigations was never founded because its founder was a Vulcan, a Vulcan who died or was never born. And don't you think Old Spock would New Spock, "This is not supposed to be the way things are, but there's this thing called the 'Guardian of Forever'..."

There was never any indication in the canon that the Temporal Investigation was founded on Vulcan they have tech in the future like ships that exist outside of time.
