Hollywood has no respect for history. Writers redraft the flow of time according to filmgoers' demographics. I don't really mind these idiots placing the discovery of America at the same year as Mel Gibson's APOCALYSO or the non-existence of emperors in GLADIATOR, however the heresy of the most recent STAR TREKs should be considered heresy by Trekkies everywhere.
Firstly they have James T. Kirk born in space rather than Riverside Iowa.
Secondly they destroy the planet Vulcan and kill off Spock's mother because she falls to her death just out of reach of her son.
Spock also has a relationship with Uhuru.
Lastly the Romulan war criminal more resembled a speedfreak skateboarder than an alien from another planet.
But what can you expect from Hollywood?
Of course I watched the movie online.
I hate sitting with fat soda-slurping popcorn eaters.
