If you’re a fan of Star Trek, then Burger King is the place to go for stuff from the latest remake directed by J.J. Abrams.  Burger King has four drinking glasses – Kirk, Spock, Nero and Uhura themes.  About $1.99 each.  There are also 16 toys – 8 characters and 8 Trek ships and gadgets that make sounds when a button is pressed.  Check out their commercial too.  They say you can get a toy with the purchase of a kids meal, but for the most part, it depends on the cashier or the manager.  Most of the time, you can just ask for the toy and not have to eat the fast food.

As for the movie, I give the Star Trek film my seal of approval.  It appeals to both the avid fans and the new-comers to the Star Trek universe.  A job well done, J.J., for breathing new life into what was an aging franchise.  In fact, it feels more Star Wars-like, except with a much better delivery in character development.  It has lots of action – laser guns, aliens integrated into society, etc.  And some crazy shaky camera angles a la Battlestar Galactica.  Don’t worry no spoilers here.  Just go see it and have fun.
