Beyond

So seven years ago, I didn't care more for the Star Trek reboot.  At the time, I thought I was done with Trek.  The poor reaction to Star Trek Into Darkness reinforced that as I skipped a Trek film for the first time since the 1979 dud came and went.  I really had no enthusiasm for Star Trek Beyond.

Until I saw all the amazingly positive reactions to it.  People were saying that it felt like an episode of the old series.  So I had to see.

And yes.  It was good.  It wasn't the greatest film ever made, but it was a good, solid, fun Star Trek film.  With a fun if occasionally saggy plot.  And great performances, even from Chris Pine, who I hated seven years ago.  It did what a Star Trek film should do.  And did it with amazing heart and love and even a sense of adventure, which we almost never see in the Trek films.

In short, to quote another Star Trek film, we are home.

Between this and the upcoming TV series, it's a good time to be a Trekkie.
