    They press the reset button?

    Cool. That's what I was hoping for - can't wait.

    Is this Alternate Reality Star Trek? Or is it still in line with the movie continuity?

    Nice article. However, the movie comes out on May 8th, not May 9th.

    Hum....

    I thought the context of what he said next about anybody being able to die, anybody being able to act differently, anything being able to happen, implied that after the reboot button was pressed the series would no longer be bound by the continuity of the old series. I'm still not convinced that his turn of phrase about reboot negates that. Do other reviews imply that the continuity isn't changed?

    Star Trek 11...It was good? So I guess that breaks the trend of even numbered ones being good and odds ones sucking then or no wait, Nemesis (Star Trek 10) broke the trend as sucking.

    So I guess it will be the opposite now with this new bunch? Star Trek 12 will be crap and 13 will be good?

    Either way I don't support this new interpretation. Thank you Orci and Kurtzman for ruining another old franchise like you did with Transformers. Maybe you guys should write the Watchmen sequel or something...since the public/critics loves you with a silver spoon.

    It reall can hurt when these properties we become attached to are re-imagined for a different consumer sensibility solely for the purpose of $$$$. Of course, the fact that the original properties were meant to suck my parents dry of their money never seemed to matter to me as a kid.

    Thumbs up

    The producers made it clear in an interview in December that this movie spoilers:
    takes place in a separate universe/timeline
    end of spoilers.

    So there is no contradiction or nullification of the original series, TNG, etc.

    Thanks - no, my hope was that this was a new start for Star Trek with the original characters and an open slate. Sounds like this is it - and it still allows folks enjoying the current continuity in books etc to keep on going. Actually, this might free up the folks writing the Star Trek books to now really carry things forward the way the Star Wars books have. Win, win.
