Alt!Scotty

Oy, but I am fond fond fond of the new Star Trek.

Last year's Star Trek continues to make me grin like an idiot.

That's the DVD that's in my player right now, and I'm working through the commentary, Occasionally on this viewing I'll switch to the regular audio track for particular moments -- dialogue, music (VERY good for air-conducting), a particular image. Including moments when any Romulan other than Nero (Eric Bana) speaks, because you hear who voiced every other Romulan in the film? Wil Wheaton. Which is another factoid that makes me grin like an idiot.

The writers, producer and director on the commentary stump themselves by asking this: What does "NCC" stand for? I didn't know either, and I've been seriously watching Star Trek since I was nine. Thankfully, the Internet answerfies.

And, because I feel like it, here's my Star Trek review from last year.
