How could someone vote down this deal? It's only $3.74!

@cebooher3: some of us are still annoyed at the reboot of a story we've grown up with and loved for over 40 years.

Edit: wasn't me, I upvoted it because it's still a good deal. And because it was a decent movie in it's own right.

@kamikazeken: But the reboot takes place in an alternate timeline. I like the way they did that. So other than the very opening of the movie, with Kirk's birth in space -- they took some liberties there -- the rest of the story in this universe doesn't change anything about the universe we already knew.

@djp519: You are correct, is not a reboot, just an alternate timeline. I believe this is mentioned when discussing whether to join Starfleet or saving Capt. Pike. I love the way they did it, as original timeline remained intact on those like me who grew up watching the original series.

@djp519: I always thought that the birth in space was supposed to also be part of the alternate timeline and that if the USS Kelvin had not been investigating a "lightning storm" in space then George and Winona would have been able to get back to Iowa for James' birth.

@hossdawg97: Hmmm, could be. But we were previously shown that there were no families on board the ships until Picard's era, certainly not 25 years before The Original Series era. But that's a fairly minor gripe all things considered. They took a creative liberty to make a more dramatic bit of story telling, with George sacrificing himself so that his wife and son could escape. Everything after that, like the fate of Vulcan, only pertains to this alternate timeline universe.

I see that Amazon is selling the blu-ray for only $9.99. Good deal!

@cebooher3: I bought it when it was $3.20 so definitely can understand the downvote. lol
