SECTION THIRTY ONE.

I said to my mother in the car, "I can't believe they went with Section 31. That's kind of deep in the Star Trek mythos to just toss at people, isn't it? I mean, I read the books, but it's right on the edge of my knowledge." I love that they did, though. If I hadn't seen a tweet -- yours? -- the other day that started, "If this really is a Section 31 movie..." I think I would've gasped out loud when it came up.

I can't remember if you've seen Firefly and Serenity, but I thought the new Klingons were super Reaver-y, but in a bad knock-off way, not in a way that was effective and made them scary.

Using the blood to resurrect Kirk was the worst, most predictable thing ever. I can usually pick out the twists in movies before they hit -- thanks to a Star Trek novel teaching me a handy trick -- but I was so confident this was coming that I leaned over to my mother before Kirk was even half dead and said, "They're going to save him with Khan's blood," and I am never that confident. I mean, come on, when your characters have a "What are you doing?" "Injecting the super-human's blood into this dead tribble to see what it does" conversation, it's just a smidge obvious where things are going to go. Maybe better writing could've saved it? I don't know. I do know that I will, for the rest of my life, think of "deus ex machina" as "deus ex tribble."
