I guess we have Uncle George to blame for that.
If I go to the sequel, it will depend on what I hear the story is about. If it's yet another megalomaniac, hell bent of blowing up Earth, or getting revenge on Kirk, or the Federation... I think I'll pass.
I sat there with a big grin on my face after the movie ended, hoping that we'd get to see this crew together again soon.

Using merchandise to tell the audience information that should've been in the movie in the first place. It's as if you have to play detective to understand the entire plot of the movie...I guess we have Uncle George to blame for that.

("We making a new sci-fi flick? Throw some heavy metal onto the soundtrack so we can sell some extra soundtrack CDs! And toss a couple more gadgets in there that we can sell as toys.") But I do have to playfully point out that you'll get a lot more meaning from Kubrick's 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY if you read Arthur C. Clarke's novel first. (In the case of Kubrick and Clarke, however, this was not done for the dollar.) The only reason I knew about the STAR TREK comic book tie-in was that a friend of mine runs (ran) a comic book shop and loaned me the mini-series. Otherwise, I wouldn't have bothered.

He made some damn fine movies! Alas, I think TREK is low on the list; his cut does make more sense of the piece (and The Great Bird's novel, even more), but it's still a weak film.
And though most of the problems were script/developmental, I do think that Wise didn't get nearly the quality of performance out of the actors that Nick Meyer later did.
