    I suspect the unconverted will want to be beamed up pronto.

    If anything this is always what I refer to as the "feel good" ST movie. Great effects. Great performances all round. Story is decent, for the most part. I did find the whale plot device a little weird and too simplistic considering what was at stake.

    As to the time travel, well that's a great way to save money on wardrobe and set design.

    Overall:
    While the movie does feel a little cheap at times and the plot is a little odd in places. As a whole it is allot of fun, highly enjoyable and pretty much the best feel good film of the franchise.
