Keeping up the blockbuster Star Trek tradition and its startling reputation, the third part of the series has to be big; actually it will disappoint the viewers if it’s not a whopping big.
The first edition of the series did fairly well, managing between the spirits of the culture and making a mark of its own. The second part did not disappoint either. However, there was an air of disagreement between the fans, those who did not mind the repetitive references and those who thought the story got carried away from the original plot. However, the new audience enjoyed the movie with a full swing.
News of Robert Orci taking to the direction of the third series was received both by discontent and delight. Die-hard fans knew Orci’s knowledge on Star Trek is beyond comparison. But a few fans were worried given his track record but, when news of Justin Lin taking over direction burst out, shrills of dissatisfaction started to fill the air. Fans could only hope now that Lin makes up for the expectation, and the third series will be more kickass and Trekkie. But he needs to keep in mind a few points that would really save the fans from discontentment. Let’s look at few of those points:
1.Enough of Overdramatic Kirk!
Viewers surely love the overrated ‘Captain my Captain’ spirit, but it is high time that Kirk acts as a big boy. The third addition to the series will see more action happening and who would want to see Starfleet officers following a character who has not grown out of his childish behavior. Chris Pine’s acting skills are commendable, but there must be an end to Kirk’s school girl drama, at least for the relief of the viewers and, of course, to save the franchise.
2.No Mushy Spock!
All of us have loved Spock for being painfully sarcastic and not giving a shred to humanity. Series one was filled with his controlled emotion ideologies and his subtle relationship with Kirk, however in new movie the relationship has been baffled, and Spock seems much into emotions. The much-needed change in the third series is to revive the shameless inhumane image of Spock and to maintain his terms with Kirk. If Justin Lin successfully did that he would save the third part from a lot of disgrace and will keep alive the spirit.
