This has been a long time in coming. Since the last movie and the cancellation of the TV shows, Fans of Star Trek have been waiting and waiting and now finally it is here. What better way to do the 11th movie in the franchise, than to go back to the very beginning, back to the early days of Kirk and Spock. I have been and always will be a Trekkie( get the pun on the statement!). From an early age I can honestly remember watching re runs of Trek on daytime TV( I wasn't born when it first ran in the USA). From the first Trek movie, through all the TV shows and specials and even a trip to Las Vegas to ride the Experience, I love Star Trek. So, from the opening credits to the closing credits, I watched and listened and eat my popcorn, WOW. The special effects were just brilliant. The story, a shift in the time line, just typical Trek verse. But then ending on a high with the possiblilty for future movies with this cast, priceless. The budget for the first movie was $35,000,000, the budget for the new movie was $150,000,000 dollars. In 1979 the first movie grossed $139,000,000 dollars. So far the new movie has grossed $223,000,000 dollars and it's not finished it's run in the cinema yet. With money like this coming in, Paramount would be mad not to make another.
