After five miserable years lying dormant, the Trek franchise was jolted back into pop culture relevancy with the launch of J.J. Abram's flashy and stylish reboot in May of 2009. The highest grossing series installment at the time of its release (not taking inflation into account), the picture brought many new fans into the fold and instantly made the property's future seem oh so bright. The question is, then, does it still hold up six years later? Hosts Cam Smith and Tyler Orton, along with guests Julia Dilworth and Jamie Davies, are on hand to find out, as they examine the popular entry from both a fan's perspective as well as a non-fan's.
