For a novice I would adsvie not seeing it period, but not because it is difficult to understand but because it is a poor imitation of what a wonderful series used to be. You re much better off watching the older series first so you can establish an understanding of the general idea of Star Trek through a more advanced perspective although I doubt the movie would be too complicated for someone of your mental caliber if that s what you mean.
