The villains of the movie, the terrorist group known as the Drej are pure handwavium and don't you dare deny it. First of all, the Drej are said to be pure energy, but they are corporeal beings with tangible bodies like you and I. The Drej Stingers and Alahenena are made out of pure energy; don't make me laugh, they have tangible designs. This is a contradiction that flies in the face of physics since pure energy cannot be tangible and pure energy life would be non-corporeal meaning without a body. Another absurdity is the fact that an ENTIRE white dwarf is crammed into the the Alahenena to power the ship. The Drej are apparently motiveless villains who apparently do not want anyone creating planets. We don't learn jack about Drej culture, Drej society, Drej lifestyle as to why they would want to stamp out the human species to begin with. So the idea of the Drej destroying a planet that we already have just to prevent us from creating planets falls flat on its face when put under even the slightest scrutiny. The film then says that no one can defeat the Drej yet in the climax of the film Cale defeated them by activating the Titan with his magic ring and draining their vessel, this is a contradiction. I bet that some might think that the Drej Mothership is stealthy on the basis of the Drej coming without waring to Earth in the film, so don't you even dare count on that. There is absolutely no stealth in space and this is guaranteed by the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics! For more information on why space stealth is handwavium, check out the Atomic Rockets website's Common Misconceptions, Respecting Science, Detection In Space Warefare, and Exotic Space Weapons web pages. The Alahenena would be spotted light-years away and its heat signature would give it away when it is farther from Earth than Alpha Centauri is. The space shuttle's main engines can be detected past Pluto. A 190m Project Orion II Starship or a Bussard Ramjet such as a Colo Claw Fish Carrier would also have enough time to deliver the antimatter bomb that will take the Alahenena out of commission in time ot save Planet Earth.
However, despite such an asinine and abhorrent story, Titan AE's messages are excellent and ideals that I agree with. Titan AE gives messages of hope, second chances, finding a home, belonging, etc and those are reasons that some other people like Titan AE and I will respect that. Some feel that the voice cast was good. I have no comment on the music or the style of animation in Titan AE.
The one Star Trek character who instantly reminds me of Titan AE is Nero from the 2009 JJ Abrams Star Trek movie who destroyed Vulcan and tried to destroy Earth in an effort to avenge the destruction of Romulus. I have a copy of the comic book prequel to the 2009 Star Trek film called Star Trek: Countdown which is a back story on what made this Titan AE-like Romulan so angry.
