Star Trek: Into Darkness

1) While still in the theatre my thoughts kept circling around to "bring on the fic!" I'm back in the mood for ST fic, big time.

2) Contains spoilers:

My biggest qualm is - I swear to god - Spock shouting out "KHAAAAAAAAANNNNNNN!" My issues:
a) No one can pull that off but Shatner.
b) Out of character for Spock.
c) This made me crack up laughing and utterly ruined the previous minutes of my heart breaking and eyes filling with tears over Kirk's (temporary) death.

3) For really the first time, I find myself a little interested in exploring Kirk/Spock/Uhura.

4) I prefer STXI to STXII pretty strongly. The best way to explain it, so far, is that XI gave such a great base and offered so much potential for relationships. XII just didn't deliver enough of a feel of "history" and solid relationships for me. It's hard to do when there was a major story to follow here and given that there's only two movies with this group, but I found myself really missing that feeling of connectedness.

I liked STID, but I agree with you. There were a few things that just didn't feel quite right to me, and I really wish they'd gone with a different story line.

I kind of have the feeling it's something that will grow on me more as I watch it again. I think it was hard to fit so much into a relatively short film, so I'll be interested to see what comes of deleted scenes when the DVDs are out.

I definitely enjoyed it and I'm glad I went to see it. There's some absolutely excellent moments - like I love McCoy and Scotty in this and I really liked the Kirk-Spock-Uhura dynamics.

2 - Thank you! Thank you so very much! Everyone I know has been all over that moment as if it was the greatest thing ever. But, it totally ruined it for me!

Oh yes...this (and I just got back seeing it for the first time). I too cried over the temporary, I saw the tribble thing coming like a headlight, death. But man the Spock thing was awkward.
