Thoughts on Star Trek, related science fiction, and the future.
I concur with your assessment of the movie's strengths in visuals and its crisp pacing(I think the new warp speed was borrowed from Battlestar Galactica, when they would jump- either way, it's a winner)and yes, the talking, the moral or at least ethical probing of situations was lacking. The scene towards the end was especially telling-Spock denying help to a doomed enemy and Kirk offering help in an inflated PR stunt, hoping to win over future Romulans. As much as I really liked this movie and will see it and other JJA movies, I'd hate for the new Universe to be that crass
