I am the mother of the founder of the NZ Star Trek Fan Club. Consequently it seemed an appropriate Mother’s Day activity to go and see “Star Trek into Darkness” which I thoroughly enjoyed. Although some bits were a bit fast and furious for my liking, there were lots of homages to the original series and quite a few laughs. Benedict Cumberpatch was ideal as Khan, but I’m not so sure about Kirk’s love interest, and the gratuitous underwear scene. Where is Deanna Troy when I want her? Jean-Luc Picard will always be my favourite, but this crew did pretty well and fans old and new will be pleased.
