Movie of the week: Star Trek

This week's pick for movie of the week boldly goes where only one two three for fi....ten other movies have gone before. Unlike most franchises that only make it half that distance, however, Star Trek has managed to produce a mostly quality movie franchise.

Even better is the fact the new Star Trek film looks to be as good as, if not better than, anything the previous iterations have had to offer.

Whoa! Take it easy. Set phasers to stun, you freaking nerds. Have you looked at the reviews?

I know the consensus isn't always right, but it looks like a young, talented cast and imaginative director J.J. Abrams have managed to craft a badass Trek film that stays true to the show's roots while also blowing away the uninitiated with an intriguing story, tons of action and special effect that'll make your eyes water.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm game.
