Fans Name 'Star Trek Into Darkness' as the Worst 'Trek' Movie Ever.

The new JJ Abrams versions of Star Trek maybe many things, but Star Trek they are not. I do not know any proper Star Trek fans who like them, sure they appeal to those who like pointless visual effects and have limited attention spans.

Abrams has admitted he never was a fan, so how the hell does he get to pillage decades of established cannon and redefine everything on our behalf. I see none of Gene Roddenberry's vision in these films, they dont even feel like real Trek, just a group of half-committed actors doing a half-assed impersonations of established and much loved characters millions of us grew up with.

What makes me really angry is many of us want a new TV series based on the original premise, this cack has set that possibility back years. The Hollywood penny counters won't allow a new series if they think they can make a few more movies. My greatest fear is with my health failing, I may not ever get to see real Star Trek again. Abrams has robbed me of that. I shudder to think what he will do to Star Wars.

As for blowing up Vulcan and Eggs Benedict Cucumberpatch as Khan v2.. well.. as the proper Khan said 'dont insult my intellect'.
