"Star Trek" upsets Trekkies by actually being good

I admit it, I'm a lifelong "Star Trek" hater. Over the years I've tried to get into "Star Trek" a few times but I don't think I've ever made it all the way through an episode. Not that I minded that much - every geek needs another group of geeks they can look at and feel cool in comparison. If I became a Trekkie there'd be no one left for my scorn but the LARPers.

Anyway, I saw the J.J. Abrams reboot this weekend and like everybody else in the world, I frickin' loved it. I feel like finally I get the fuss about "Star Trek", although a part of me suspects that, much like another recent reboot of a franchise I was largely indifferent to (that would be "Casino Royale"), what I loved about this movie didn't have much to do with the original property.

This Onion News Network video does a good job of summing up how I feel about the new movie and how it fits in the greater scheme of the "Star Trek" phenomenon while also being completely hysterical. Live long and... whatever.
