Star Trek: Not just for geeks anymore

At least that's what the numbers are saying.  In just a day and a half "Star Trek" has pulled in a very solid $31 million.  To put it into context, the most successful Trek film prior to this was "First Contact."  That movie pulled in 30.7 million in its full first weekend.  Furthermore, the most recent adventure of the Enterprise has brought in more cash for Paramount than "Nemesis" did in its ENTIRE THEATRICAL RUN!

Assuming this film has decent staying power, it looks like we'll be getting to see some more adventures with this new cast.  I for one can't wait.
