Skyping With Spock: A Star Trek Into Darkness Rant (Spoilers)

I went and saw Star Trek: Into Darkness last night. I've never been much of a Star Trek fan, but the reboot gave me hope by establishing itself as an alternate universe from the original series. This meant the new series was free from the bounds of canon and had license to forge itís own path and become itís own story using itís own versions of the original cast. Basically, Abrams is out to create some good olí Star Trek fan fiction. Itís with this mindset that I went to see Into Darkness in the hopes of seeing Abrams do something new and unique with a franchise thatís spent too long resting on its laurels.

Itís also with this mindset that every hope and dream I had for this new franchise died a horrible death. Even worse, I can point it all to one scene.†

Raise your shields, spoilers are incoming.

Wouldn't it have been more interesting if Khan was just after his crew and had no intention of conquering the galaxy? Wouldn't it be cool of Old Spock was wrong? What if Kirk had just stayed dead and Sulu became permanent captain? I mean, just do something new and interesting with this franchise. Unless the trailers for the next movie promise some kind of drastic change, I donít think Iíll be seeing it, because if Skyping with Spock is the best you've got, then I want none of it.
