JJ Abrams' rebooted Star Trek was a big hit but met with mixed reaction among hard core Trek fans. I personally really liked it, I felt the characters remained true and the time travel plot involving the original Spock made it so everything we had seen before the film was not invalidated and indeed still counts. The Star Trek: Into Darkness trailer has been released and it looks like a lot of fun and I am especially looking forward to the villainous performance by Benedict Cumberbatch, who is so great on the BBC's Sherlock. There is one complaint that I have been reading that may have a little merit... from all the footage I have seen, it seems that almost all the action takes place on Earth, rather than in space or on board the Enterprise. I try not to judge a movie too much by it's trailer, but I hope they haven't left the Trekking out of Star Trek!
