I was watching last years "Star Trek" movie on DVD today and it was a reasonably entertaining film. However I'm not a Trekkie, and I think the film makers have been very cruel to the hard core fans who've learnt the entire cannon over 5 different TV series and a whole bunch of movies and know which alien with a strange forehead signed which treaty with which other oddly foreheaded alien.

What they've done, and if you haven't seen the film this is a spoiler, is with some time travel jiggery pokery made the entire future history of the Star Trek universe, from Captain Kirk's birth onwards, null and void.

This must be distressing for Trekkies, it's almost as though all that time memorising lists of Klingon chancellors was wasted.

They might have to do some studying for their sociology degree instead now!
