Behold: the trailers for the re-boot.
One of the few times I cut high school (see geek reference above) was to go see the first Star Trek movie with John Monaghan, who's done well for himself as a movie critic. We deemed it "slow-paced and poorly directed," which made all the more sense when I realized years later that it shared a director with "The Sound of Music." ST:TMP was one of Robert Wise's last films, and it shows.
It even gave Voyager a bad name. But it's still worth a look back:
Yet another reason to look forward to Spring.
