Cue the incoherence,
Ok, so I intended to post earlier about my geeky fangirl heart palpitations over the prospect of going to see Star Trek tonight, but that was before our internet connection died a fiery death. Now that it has been resurrected, I can squee to my heart's content. I'm not even sure if I was this excited about Return of the King.

#%(@%(@%BY*@YCG@BV@BIWORHVOWEYR@*(#$YO@C$HO@HV O@$YTV*OEUVGEO IGT#OWITVWYV O@T$.

I think that's about as coherent as it gets. This is my childhood, folks. I grew up with Trek, lived and breathed it. I watched every episode. I could quite the Nitpicker's Guide by heart. I went to conventions (and dressed up). I own Conversational Klingon. I had a cutaway poster of the NCC-1701 D in my closet. Trek brought me to science fiction, which is such an integral part of my life I can't really imagine what I would be without it. So I, like many die hard, dedicated Trek fans waited with both trepidation and anticipation to see what JJ Abrams was going to do to our sacred universe.

He nailed it.

He captured the spirit of those characters, cast them with people who were able to root out the essence of them and recreate them in a way that did homage to the original actors and yet reinvent them for their own. He gave us a freaking badassship that will do those characters proud. It's all wrapped up in breathtaking action that never forgets that this story is really about the characters, and without them there is no story.

Karl Urban, I am pretty sure you were possessed by DeForest Kelly, in the best possible way.

It's entirely possible I will have seen this twice by the end of the weekend. Only my inner Vulcan (if there is one) will keep that number from being higher.

OH MY GOD WASN'T IT AMAZING?!?! I YELLED FOR THEM TO START IT OVER WHEN THE CREDITS CAME UP! LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE.

*rolls around with the movie*

I was so worried it wouldn't live up the hype and it just blew me away. The entire cast was amazing, everything was so PERFECT. GAH.

I'm still kind of in this dreamy, semi-fugue state this morning.

Little CHEKOV and his "I can do that! I can do that!"

Sulu basically forgetting to take off the PARKING BRAKE,

Uhura actually having a REAL JOB that sounds IMPORTANT and ESSENTIAL.

AND JJ ABRAMS SUCKED VULCAN INTO A BLACK HOLE. Can he DO that? CAN HE??????

I'm not sure I can watch House anymore without screeching. "THAT'S KIRK'S MOM!" every time I see Cameron.

I have to go see it again today.
