I can't believe no one's brought this up yet...I mean, it was on Wednesday, after all.
So. What's everyone think about the new Star Trek? I saw Burnt Dog Radio had the same impression I did - Vulcan nipples.
/Totally/ necessary to the plot, having them get nekked and rub gel over their glistening bodies. In fact, there was just as much justification for that little scene as there is for the obligatory threesome in your average porno (Gee, Gary and Betty, would you help me tie this bikini string? Oops! *giggle*).
I was also rather disturbed by the fact that the Vulcan's acting reminds me of that chick with the huge knockers on Voyager (yeah, yeah. I'm bad with names.), almost as though some director was rather attracted to cold and austere women with bodies that actually exceed Barbie doll proportions. And was trying to make all of his actresses into that ideal. Not that I'm saying anything about Berman's proclivities.
And even I, Madame Stupid About Technology, laughed when they said the armor plating was offline.
I did see that the Penny Arcade guy liked it, though. I dunno, I kept saying, "But weren't we at /war/ with the Klingons back then?"
And...when Scott Bakula just goes *wandering* around the space station at the end there? Heow and I are both screaming, 'Die, you utter moron!' I find it insanely unlikely that there is one guard only around the Klingon, who holds the information that can destroy that entire plan. Or none at all around the special time warp room thingie that proves their plotting with the future. Especially since they had to know the Enterprise was out there, they were attacking the stupid thing.
And, our space ship, which the Vulcans have withheld vital information on from us for a hundred years, and which is our first attempt at...you know...Enterprise-y like things, can hold it's own against a civilization that is advanced enough to be using genetic alteration and making huge structures out of space ships. Yeah. Right.
