    Ok, so I've never watched any Star Trek movie before. I've been reading reviews of them and they seem like very good movies. I've decided to download and watch them. I only have 1 problem, I've seen probably 5-10 episodes of Star Trek allthogether. It's not that I don't like it it's just on TV at an hour that doesn't suit me.

    Anyway, my question is, do you think I could enjoy the movies anyway?
    I'm back. The downside is that I'm also old now.

    Yeah, but was there anything that you didn't understand or had a hard time understanding?

    Btw, the trekkie thing is meant as an exaggeration.

    I actually just started to watch star trek movies too. and I did notice that some background info was lost like character development since i never watched any of the shows from the series either, but not enough that you wont understand the story.

    I am in the same boat. This new movie looks great and I wish I knew more about the Trek Universe.
    Just a little fact, I was recently informed that die hard Trekkies actually prefer to be called TrekkERs

    Obviously the OP is not a science fiction fan . Martinator , you just have to like a good si-fi book to understand Star Trek .

    Example , I'm reading a book called " WE " by Yevgeny Zamyatin published in 1921 . Could swear it's the blue print for the Borg .

    Well, no I'm not the biggest Sci-Fi fan. I don't have a lot of free time atm, I just thought I'd watch the movies. While watching I keep going to wikipedia to check some stuff out, lol.

    And I know I'm not gonna understand everything the first time I watch it.

    In case people wanted to know i talked to a friend who is into star trek and he told me that the new star trek movie doesn't have anything to do with the old ones. in case anyone wanted to know.
