So, I saw Start Trek Into Darkness Wednesday. It was free thanks to being a BigFanBoy event. Peace to my man Mark.

I enjoyed it a-lot, and here's my main take away from it: I hope they move on.
We've gotten the reboot out of our system, we've gotten Khan out of our system, and they've officially started their 5 year mission. Like Scotty said, they're explorers, not military; time to go explore.
And I'm not against things from the original showing up, but I'm way more interested in seeing the new species and races; new planets, new artifacts, new entities, new phenomena. You know, going where no one has gone before.
I want to see the new Kirk deal with warring races, neither of which are in the Federation. I want to see new Spock deal with the fact that he could wander the universe and never run into another Vulcan, unless he actively searches for one. I want to see members of the Enterprise crew represent who we don't already know. I want to see Kirk, Spock, Mccoy, and Scotty in four-way brawls to save each other's lives.
I want to see something amazing, I guess. Here's hoping Star Trek III can make that happen.
