JJ Abrams (director) has used an exceptional team to deliver Star Trek for a new generation. I come from the old generation of Star Trek fans. In fact I was a Star Trek fan before I'd seen Star wars, although Star wars was released long before the latter.
Every sundays, watching Star Trek episodes with William Shatner (Kirk) and Leonard Nimoy (Spock) used to be the highlight of the weekend. This is of course before Sherlock Homes came up. The new one, has sharp uniforms and the cast is top order. Loved Zachery as Spock the most.
Watch it if you are a science fiction fan or not !! you wont regret it.
