Space the Final Frontier


This weekend I finally saw the new Star Trek movie.

  • James had been begging for a while.
  • He loved it and I thought I would too.
  • I was skeptical.

Basically Star Trek got a new life.

  • It was the same Star Trek.
  • And it wasn’t.
  • Much more than just a remake.

More like a new chapter.

  • New actors in classic roles.
  • Guiding principles honored.
  • And ability to go where they had never gone before.

James was right.

  • The movie had me emotionally hooked within the first five minutes.
  • And crying at the end.
  • The in-between stuff was interesting too.

When the movie was over, I wanted more.

  • Me, who was definitely NOT a Trekkie.
  • Considered the original Star Trek outdated.
  • And would rather watch paint dry.

With this new crew and updated world, I was sold.

Makes me think of chapter leaders…what would a little updating do for your chapter?
