  1. While I’ve enjoyed the new Star Trek movies, something has definitely felt amiss so I could definitely buy the “Mirror, Mirror” theory. Kirk is kind of an asshole, for starters, and actually admits he’s a bad captain… he doesn’t have much at all in common with Shatner’s Kirk. Would certainly be a bold way to end the trilogy.

    1. I’m with you Matt. Chris Pine’s Kirk just hasn’t done it for me for some reason. But I’ve been pick up allot of rumors over the internets saying that we might not get a 3rd movie now, especially with JJ helming the new Star Wars film(s). Talk has been of this timeline going to TV for the 5-year mission, but likely without these actors. I guess we will just have to wait and see what comes. :-)
