Good, good. Next you hit "Play." Should look kinda like this I> Only not so obviously an uppercase I and a closed angle bracket.

These updated effects are excellent, much more defined, yet still retaining that old school feel

These Klingons have just realised that they are in the shit - I love the fact photon torpedoes move in complete unison.

I love the costumes, sets and model work on this movie - they really got it right, all still totally believable as the future.

Shit, Shatner is SO young. Looking good Kirk.

No. This isn't true. When I saw this as a kid the killing of the Klingons WAS the first scene of the film.

How many times have I gotta kick you foos up the arse in this place in the span of 5 EPIC minutes?!?!?!

this extended fly past/first view of the Enterprise is fantastic, you can really feel kirk's devotion to his ship - glad Wise reinstated it.

i still think that the enterprise from this film is one of the most amazing looking spacecraft ever designed. it really looks beautiful.

not as beautiful as shatner, but beautiful nonetheless.

I'm going to jump in for a moment with the blind commentary. Not sure if you're there yet, guessing not, but Bones + beard = godly. The man looks like the hippy tripster I always knew he was when he wasn't busy patching up redshirts. Or proclaiming them dead. I don't know why people hate it so much. I really envision him as a futuristic toker, the man loves Romulan ale for Christ's sake!

It's very much Roddenberry's colour palette. He used it again for the Next Gen sets.
