According to Faraci, “Star Trek Into Darkness was met with boos when it was mentioned, and one guy took the mic to say these reboots shouldn’t even be considered for a list of Star Trek movies.” Into Darkness was met with hardcore fan apathy when released in May—although both fans and mainstream audiences seemed to enjoy it —but that it’s unpopular to the point of booing (or being named the least popular movie in the series, for that matter) may be something that Paramount and executive producers/writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman might want to take into account before planning the third movie in the rebooted series.
What. The. Heck? What is wrong with these people. As a pretty hard core Star Trek fan (I have models of ships and posters, okay?) let me reassure you that Star Trek Into Darkness is FAR from the worst Star Trek film. In fact I would put it up closer to the top, actually.
I’m telling you, Star Trek fans can be their own worst enemies sometimes.
