Star Trek: Into Darkness is the new Star Trek movie that is currently playing on thousands of multiplex cinema screens. I saw it last weekend with my 14 year-old niece and 11 year-old nephew. My niece really wanted to see The Great Gatsby, but deferred to her action-loving brother. I was interested in seeing Star Trek: Into Darkness after reading an article that argues that the progressive Star Trek franchise has one glaring omission: it does not depict Lesbian-Bisexual-Gay-Transgender (LBGT) people and perspectives. I wondered if the new movie would include these folks as crew members. The answer: no. In fact, Star Trek: Into Darkness was a pretty typical action movie with little else going on, and it was a much less interesting than the 2009 Star Trek reboot. Hopefully the next installment will present the social commentary that is a hallmark of the franchise.
