ST:TMP & Star Trek ReBoot
This long weekend, I sat down and watched Star Trek: The Motion Picture and followed that up with J.J Abram’s reboot of the franchise. It was good to see both films in their prespective.
ST:TMP was a gathering of old friends, journey once more into the great unknown to face a uncertain danger from an entity as big as a solar system. Showed up what happened to our beloved crew after they completed their five years mission and where they ended up. It was nice sentimental journey indeed.
ST is an alternate timeline and not a reboot of the franchise. Even though we knew these characters and their history. It is good to see them fresh and anew, a ripple in time had shifted things but they were destined to be together. And the new Kirk has all the memories of what the old Spock has due to the mind meld, but things are very and vastly different in this timeline.
