Things I like about the Trek Reboot
And that's about it. Having Kirk promoted straight to Captain and given a starship command when he hadn't even graduated yet (and if I remember right, he was facing disciplinary action for cheating) is one of the primary reasons why I don't like the reboot. The design of the Enterprise itself is another reason. One of the biggest reasons, however, is the casting of a white actor to play a Sikh character. I know, I know, Ricardo Montalban wasn't even South Asian, but at least he wasn't white.
But like I said, I like - no, LOVE - the casting. Pine, Quinto, Cho, Saldano, etc. are all perfect castings. The uniforms are snazzy and are a nice update to the classic uniforms of The Original Series.
