I thought the new Star Trek reboot was great, so it's worth seeing what Abrams can deliver.

War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.
Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.
Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.
War = Life
