Our final epic moments poll deals with the reimagined Star Trek movies.
Love it or hate it, change has come to the Star Trek franchise, rewriting the canon for better or worse, but forever. With Nero’s vengeful jaunt into the past and the subsequent destruction of Kirk’s family and the planet Vulcan, the timeline was changed!
The changes to the timeline notwithstanding, some of the classic themes of peace vs. militarism, struggle against unequal odds, and self-sacrifice are constants in the new movies as well. Our new look at the series with younger eyes and actors has not taken it away from its philosophical and teaching-moment roots.
