Star Trek has come a long way and has inspired millions, including me, to dream what is beyond the skies and stars and to use logic over faith. Now after 43 years, 726 episodes, and 10 films, the franchise has been handed over to a new group. The new Star Trek movie is a prequel of sorts since the story takes place during the pre-TOS era. Somehow, I got excited when I watched the 4th trailer. New perspective on the action scenes, but what worries me is the storyline and continuity. In canon, James T. Kirk should be serving under Captain Garrovick on the USS Farragut first before boarding the Enterprise.
40 years of legacy is hard to change, but who knows, maybe after the movie, Kirk will do serve on the Farragut. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I must admit that I've only watched about 6 episodes from the TOS era but I do read the books, so I'm still quite up-to-date with regards the TOS timeline.
In the meantime, here's a video for you JJ Abrams. A video of a franchise you should respect and a video that a true Trekkie/Trekker would appreciate. The 40 years of Star Trek, compiled by a fan for us fans.:
Star Trek will open in theaters 1 week from now. If ever, Star Trek will be the first film I'm going to watch on IMAX, and the 7th TOS-era of Trek. I'm still saving up for the complete TOS season DVDs :P
