Totally Ready for this Trek!
Whats up Nerds!
So, I’m in my mid-thirties and my entire life I’ve pretty much lived by one premise and that is that you make a choice in either Star Wars or Star Trek… now before you start yelling, I realize that this may get people upset, but its really how I went through life. I have always been a Star Wars kinds guy because I really liked the swashbuckling aspect to the concept with knights and princesses and Yoda, whereas Star Trek always seemed more science-ey to me. Funny thing is that I really know alot about Trek though, because my Aunt was a big Trekkie and my Dad would watch it frequently too. I remember playing with my Millenium Falcon toy while Trek was on in the background and I’ve seen every episode of the original series, Next Generation, and Deep Space Nine at least twice. Still, I held firmly to my Star Wars roots.
That was until a few years back when J.J. Abrams re-made and in my opinions re-mastered Star Trek for theatrical audiences. I loved so much about this movie, from the story to the casting to the overall look. It didn’t feel cheesy to me any more, in fact it was cool. So with that said, I am super psyched for this summer’s Star Trek Into Darkness. Abram’s sequel just released an international trailer this week and after watching it about a half a dozen times this weekend I am totally ready to Trek-Out in 8 short weeks! To satisfy my new fix I think I’m also gonna check out the new Star Trek video game set to release on April 23rd, which expands the universe between the end of the 2009 film and this summer’s sequel. If nothing else, you gotta check out the re-imagined Gorn!
So I’m realizing better late than never that it’s OK to like both. Man, maybe I should start trying things like Coke and Burger King next, maybe they’ll be good too… 🙂 OK, without further ado check out the new International Trailer…
Live Long and Prosper and May the Force be with You Evil Geeks!
