Star Trek Easter Eggs And Cameos

I watched the new Star Trek movie yesterday and loved it. It was everything that a summer blockbuster should be.  I watched the television show as a kid and enjoyed the Wrath of Khan movie but found most of the prior Trek movies dull and silly.  This film really reboots the entire franchise into something current, exciting, relevant and appealing.  If you like what Christopher Nolan did to Batman or the new James Bond series, then you will enjoy this origin picture.  There are enough inside jokes and references to keep the Trekkies happy but the material is accessible for a new audience as well. The entire theater was clapping at the end of the movie and everyone wanted more.  I’m sure there will be a sequel.

JJ Abrams made sure to include a batch of easter eggs and cameos in the movie to ensure repeat viewings.
