A year ago, if you had asked me about the-then-upcoming Star Trek movie, I would have said, "Why bother? End the franchise, it's over." Star Trek had been dying slowly for years, and I was not a fan of Alias or Lost, and therefore not a fan of J.J. Abrams.
Well, I watched Star Trek over the weekend--it was good, and the franchise is back. Not only was I wrong, I'm glad that I was wrong. Mr. Abrams you now have not only critical and financial success, but also the respect of this nerd. I'm sure that must mean the world to you.

I may have enjoyed the new movie, but just to be clear, this is Leonard, not Zachary. Or Spock Prime as they're now calling him.
