‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ boldly goes … well, you know the rest
In 2009, J.J. Abrams boldly rebooted the Star Trek franchise in an effort to revitalize a product that really hadn’t gone anywhere new in more than a decade. As a Trekker, I originally felt like he had spent way too much screen time in that film to developing characters who were well known.
After seeing “Star Trek Into Darkness,” I now fully understand the genius of what he was doing.
After the 2009 film, the audience — which has since grown to include folks who weren’t originally Trek fans — can now connect with these characters on an emotional level I don’t believe was entirely possible even in the “original cast” films. The subject matter is timely, as was always the case when Gene Roddenberry himself was involved in the writing.
