I really liked the latest Star Trek film with the new cast quite a lot. I thought it was great how they used Leonard Nimoy to tie the two different realities together, making the classic TV shows and films still canon and living on through Spock Prime. It will be much more fun watching the continuing adventures of the new Trek reality knowing that the classic one has not been made redundant. I thought the cast did very well in evoking the original actor's mannerisms while adding their own take as well. I look forward to a sequel and wonder who the antagonist will be. I'd like to see Klingons, and I have read rumors of Khan... but how on earth could anyone top Ricardo Montalban in that role?
