OK, so I finally saw the new Trek film ...

... and was underwhelmed. While I can appreciate the myriad homages to the classic 1982 Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, the story was pretty unoriginal and included way too much consipracy nonsense that writer Roberto Orci dabbles in.

*Sigh* I really don't have much to add from what I wrote here, despite then not having seen the film. One thing stuck out at me: If the film's message was supposed to be so ... "anti-military" (Admiral Marcus' clandestine attempts via Section 31 to prepare for war against the Klingons is the "real" bad guy), then why are Starfleet personnel now decked out in overtly Nazi-esque gray uniforms, complete with hats? Oh yeah, right -- maybe that's precisely it. Yeesh. And that ending? Kirk's speech about "not getting revenge?" Cheeyeah. Got it. "We created Khan and co. just like we 'created' al Qaeda/bin Laden/Muslim fundies." Or something.

Spare me.

If there was a need for the gratuitous "real Trek universe" Spock appearance ("new universe" Spock summons him for info on Khan), then why couldn't he also have filled in 'ol pointy ears about the Klingons, hmm? That Admiral Marcus was spot-on -- conflict with the Klingons was inevitable??

"OK, some of what I did was questionable ... but I DID save the Federation's ASS."

Yeesh. That "America created fundie Muslims" nonsense sure seems to be popular among the Hollywood moonbats, doesn't it? First, Iron Man 3 and now this. Ugh.

Other international activity included the opening of offices in Mexico City; Santiago, Chile; and Valencia, Venezuela. In 1994, on the verge of celebrating its 90th anniversary, Robinson expanded its intermodal strategy with two purchases, Atlanta-based Commercial Transportation Services Inc. and Boston-based Bay State Shippers Inc., both for undisclosed amounts. The company also had plans to broaden it?? the Fresh 1 line to include more value-added items.
