True fans wouldn't have thought much of this, Beth. I'll explain why: In the original series, the stories might have features James T. Kirk in central role, but he was not the most important thing. The story was the most important thing. In the 1960s, a lot of stuff was happening: race riots, war protests, civil unrest, etc. The stories in the Star Trek series for the most addressed these issues. The war in Vietnam, for example. To make Captain Kirk the big, bold star of an episode might have gone over in The Next Generation(which was the epitome of selfishness), but not in the original series.
Also, I strongly disagree with Dot on the Mission Impossible film(the first one). At the start of the film, it was classic MI. I can't believe we were watching the same film! And all through the movie, we are treated to all the goodies that were in the classic TV series, including the prosthetic make-up, gadgets, etc. This was a great little film, and I think today's audience is expecting too much. If you want to see the old series, go to the local library and check it out and watch it. You can't possibly expect something as mundane and ridiculous as a perfect, tiny, television remake projected onto a big screen, complete with a 45 minute story. It's silly even to think about.
