Star Trek

Saturday night, we watched Star Trek, the 2009 film that essentially reboots the series, in HD on the AppleTV. We enjoyed the movie.

Nevertheless, I have a huge problem with the use of time travel as a plot point. Both the old television series and the movies have used time travel on a number of occasions. I understand why they did it; they wanted to cast Leonard Nimoy in the movie as the old Spook. As used in this film, it would seem that a number of things that we knew from the series and the other films have been changed substantially. During the movie, I kept thinking how the hell does that work? It makes my head hurt.
