I feel the need to insert a little disclaimer here. Until five days before seeing this film, I had never seen a Star Trek movie in my life. My knowledge of the franchise was as follows;
- I knew names of key characters (Kirk, Spock and Scotty, basically)
- There was something called an Enterprise
Then, just before seeing the new movie, I thought I should catch up with the 2009 reboot. I found that to be ok but didn’t love it. The point I am trying to get across here is that I am in no way able to judge this movie against the franchise as a whole. Whilst this may mean I miss some nods to the earlier movies, I am happy that I can judge this movie on it’s own merits.
