they're fine action movies
honestly I think a lot of people shit on them because they're just action movies, but at the same time, the most successful trek movies before were also just action movies
@Red @mal @venusinlibra666 @kioskwitch It explains why Spock was so drugged out in The Voyage Home and why the Enterprise in such bad shape stealing a Klingon Bird of Prey sounded easy and logical. So it's fun as a very long intro to Voyage Home if you have time.
Watch it in a double feature with Voyage Home. If you really have time it forms a tight continuity trilogy with WoK, but you can probably skip WoK as lead in to Search because you'll remember WoK at least.
Smeap is the honk of a flamingo. Smeap was also at least once, a storybook land at the weird intersection of TV ads and the worlds they seem to inhabit. It was a place where wars were fought over sodas, and talking polar bears had very good reasons to guard soda machines. It was a place where rainbow color candies were harvested for electric power. It was a place where a prairie dog might move to big city inhabited mostly by Pink Flamingos to follow her dream to be private investigator, only to get slowly entangled in the seedy underbelly of crime and prohibited soda trading of the Neon Flamingos and their syndicate. Social media at times lately feels like it has become almost entirely seedy underbelly with very little upside. Maybe it needs more storybook worlds.
