It's the best Star Trek movie that isn't actually Star Trek, but what if J.J. Abrams had directed Galaxy Quest?
When fans at the Las Vegas Trek convention ranked all the Star Trek movies, Into Darkness did not fair well. But you know what movie everyone loves, even the people who make Trek? Galaxy Quest. It's just such a lovely homage and, as movies go, is often billed as being executed perfectly.
But Galaxy Quest is played mostly for laughs. What if it had been done with a more serious tone? And what if that movie was directed by J.J. Abrams? Well, it might look a little something like this.
That movie would have been pretty cool. It wouldn't be as good as the actual Galaxy Quest, but it probably would still have been better received than, say, Into Darkness.
