Oh My Goodness!

For DS1's birthday, we went to the new Star Trek movie--the second in the "reboot" series. I was really unhappy with some of the liberties the director and writers took with the original show's canon in the first movie--not that my opinion mattered. This time, I went in with some skepticism, expecting the same. Well, what a surprise. The movie was fantastic, and as my sons said, it was much like an apology to all of us offended by the first one! There were so many times throughout the movie that I wanted to jump up and holler. At the end, I clapped. What a great movie. I am so grateful for our children who have become Trekkies right along side their mother. They knew all of the inside references and details which were paying kind homage to those of us who have lived in the 23rd century since September of 1966!  DS 1 is going back on Friday, and  I hope to talk DH into going so that he can see it this time around!
