Major Trek spoilers -- but what witty banter!

Right after the press screening for J.J. Abrams's new Star Trek movie last Saturday, Space: The Imagaintion Station producer Mark Askwith and I went out to lunch at Milestones with the great crew from Hardcore Nerdity, and we recorded our thoughts about the movie, which opens North America-wide in two days, on Friday, May 8. DON'T listen to the podcast until after you've seen the film -- our comments contain major spoilers.

But I will say this: every one of us is a major fan of the original series, and we all totally loved this new film.

You can hear our thoughts here.

It's not necessarily the 'A'!

John, I looked at the serial number, which said: "NCC-1701-A."

Saw it. It was FUN!

Movie accomplished the goals of making Trek cool for the masses and establishing the characters.

Now let us see handle a crisis as a team.

The only part that falters is the whole Delta Vega section. Lots of wonky science and coincidences jammed in there.

Overall loved it!
