    Scotty is awesome, one of the reasons I pursued Science at school... I wonder if Simon Pegg has the same effect....

    You think engineering isn't science based? As it turns out it lead to Computer Science and a job as a Software Engineer

    Can you remind me on your second point? What/when did that happen?

    No but if you're going to be inspired by an engineer wouldn't actual engineering be more likely?

    The dead tribble having Harrison's amazing regenerating blood used on it was a very obvious set up to a member of the crew being mortally wounded and having the same used on them. Quite why they needed Harrison's blood when there were 72 other similar people at hand I don't know.

    So, you were inspired by a mechanical engineer to go into science and then go into computers then coding/helpdesk monkey?

    It was just an unfortunate turn of phrase that Whizzo used, he doesn't mean a gun owned or used by Ensign Chekov (or should that be Acting Chief Engineer? :p) he just means a plot device used as foreshadowing for a certain event.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chekhov's_gun



    EDIT, oh he said that already in his original post - silly me! :p

    Well they didn't do engineering at school, Electronics I did that, then moved in to Physics at A level and Degree before I ditched it for computers, I think Data was partially an influence in that area

    I think that was more Riker I mean he got to bang Troi when she was hot... now all this talk of letching has me thinking of Jadzia and Hoshi two of the hottest girls in Trek IMO.

    Saw this last night. Pretty damn good.

    It is indeed better than the last one but it does take awhile to get going.

    8.5/10

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    Does it have more lens flare than a mid to late nineties fps?

    You are a factory of sadness.

    It has lots of lens flare, including one shot (with Carol looking at the monitor) where it seemed to be intentionally done to piss off haters.

    I don't mind the lens flare, I love the action and the look of the Abrams Star Trek universe. I'd even say the last movie is my favourite Trek. This one, however, was let down by a complete lack of originality. If you've seen any Star Trek films prior to this one (especially one in particular) then you've seen this film. I groaned when they revealed who Tom Harrison was and knew exactly where the film would go from that point. Harrison made for a much more interesting character before the reveal. A rogue Starfleet officer with access to superior firepower and his own motives would just have been a better story.

    It is a fun film, though. It does get some things right and some scenes are quite exciting. I'd probably recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen any of the Star Trek films before but, if you have, you'll probably just find yourself groaning at the references.


    Edited for spoiler tags. Sorry, folks!

    Hopefully who ever takes over the movies doesn't have a lens flare fetish, it does get really silly in this, the flares happen at times where you'd probably need a broken camera to cause them in the first place.

    It's funny, I only really notice the lens flares whenever someone is pointing them out. Apart from the odd really obnoxious one, of course.

    Yet on the other hand stuff even the subtlest orange/teal jumps right out at me. Lens flares just dont bother me.

    Yeah! I don't care if this film is AKA Lens Flare II: Into Flareness - it's just fine.

    @sega I agree with BinaryBob you should spoiler your post. It's too revealing.

    The lens flare is probably so prominent because it is part of the 3D post processing work. i.e. This scene don't look great 3D-wise. I know, let's put some Lens Flare popping outta the screen!

    Is it part of that? On the making of the first one I recall they literally had guys placing torches on the set so they'd shine into the camera.
