A New Era In Star Trek and Filmmaking

Since watching the new Star Trek Movie on Thursday, I have been crunching the numbers trying to gauge the effect and have come to this conclusion.  It is a bold new era which has been needed for some time now.  Here goes...

The characters are solid in their continuity, in the new time-line. That is the genius of great writers. They successfully integrated story, a reboot, and widened Trek from 1960’s geekdom into very cool and most excellent storytelling in today’s new media. I think JJ and company have shut the door on the ongoing new media paradigm shift while raising the bar for succeeding films.

This is NOT YOUR FATHER’s STAR TREK
and also marks the return of fantastic Hollywood EPIC film and moviemaking.

I think Gene would understand just exactly what JJ has accomplished. I can see it even if the world needs time to realize just exactly what has just happened.

IT’S A NEW ERA!
