  1. This will be horrible. While breathing new life into Star Trek is great, blowing the hot wind of explosions, CGI, and thin plots (red matter?) is going to cause a lack luster movie (and enraged fans everywhere I am sure).

    Though maybe they have less lens flare in this one. :)

  2. Um…

    Do the words "TO BOLDLY GO WHERE NO ONE HAS GONE BEFORE" not ring any bells any more? Isn't Star Trek supposed to be an *optimistic* view of the future, where the Federation is a genuine utopia? This is just a standard sci-fi thriller with the "Star Trek" name glued to the front.

  3. yeah that looks like the members of the Star Ship Enterprise landed in Battleship. Just another generic massive end of world movie. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now but nothing in that first trailer looks like it belongs in a Star Trek film. No heart to me.

  4. God I hate other Star Trek fans. So, so much. How dare they revive the franchise with high quality entertainment. There's not enough politics and fake science!

    • That's kind of assuming that it IS high quality entertainment. The last film was pretty 'meh'. There's really very little that says "Star Trek" in any of these films beyond the names – it's just Standard Sci-fi with the Star Trek name screwed on.

      • Apart from it's set in the Star Trek universe, the crew is the same, the mannerisms are near perfect in a nod to the original, the species are the same, the science is the same and the ideals are in line with those from all the other series and the humour is spot on… not much then. What EXACTLY is it you want? You can't have the original crew back, you can't have the Next Generation crew and no one wants Voyagers crew so this is it people, embrace the fact it IS Star Trek and somebody actually wants to try and make it work rather than letting it die and make us watch the first three of each of the old films over and over…..

        • It's not set in the Star Trek universe, it's explicitly set in an alternate universe. The crew is mostly the same, though Kirk is even more obnoxious, but the ideals do NOT match those of the other series.

          Two key quotes from Roddenberry help illustrate the problem I have with the new films: "Star Trek speaks to some basic human needs: that there is a tomorrow — it's not all going to be over with a big flash and a bomb; that the human race is improving; that we have things to be proud of as humans." and "The strength of a civilization is not measured by its ability to fight wars, but rather by its ability to prevent them." We're now getting two all-out war films in a row, which shreds the idea of "it's not all going to be over with a big flash and a bomb" – rather it pushes the idea of "There will always be the change of a big flash and a bomb!"

        • I don't think Star Trek can be damaged by some gritty comparisons to the actual reality of the human condition. Plus regardless of it being 'rebooted' it's still the Star Trek universe, just an alternate time line.

        • The original Star Trek had violent interaction after violent interaction, blatant racism against Klingons, sexism, and religious speeches. TNG had wars against the Borg and touched on the idea of Corruption in the Federation, and the Q, who taught that humankind needs to continue improving. The other shows also featured wars, though the main characters tried diplomacy first.

          The new films place our heroes in the middle of the events that shape the Federation in a way that is more exciting, and seems more realistic. These movies show that humanity is improving and also shows that our true enemies now are not nations, but extremists.

        • What you describe could've been achieved without an Abramized reboot. I blame Paramount for letting the franchise go quietly into the night, only to suffer unholy re-animation at the hands of JJoker.

          I will take the campyest fan-based production on YouTube over anything in the reboot canon (as if).

  5. Not sure if i should watch or cover my eyes, for this trainwreck comes for sure. The demise of the Star Trek Franchise shifted into the next gear.
    The teaser looks like a Transformers-Battleship-Batman mashup, perhaps somebody should tell the producers that they are making a Star Trek movie.

  6. Ah the sound of whinging trekkies….personally I think Abrams has done a great job of breathing some life into an IP that really needed it. Of course it is impossible to counter 'nerd rage' therefore have fun screaming yourselves into denial while the rest of us fans enjoy what is likely to be a pretty good film.

    It's lucky Abrams has changed the tired 'Star Trek film' formula otherwise by the time all the original trekkies have died of old age there would be no one left wanting to watch it. Move on people, change is good.

  7. As i recall this is now an alternate reality compared to the origional so ANYTHING can happen! It wouldn't make sence to just remake the old movies with new cast, what would be the point? Besides, those long-time fans know what the Star Trek universe was like up untill now. Generalized peace and exploring the unknown…Taking a sledgehammer to that thought throws us all for a loop for sure, but i'm personaly excited. I hope there will be plenty more movies to continue this storyline!

  8. I'm a big Star Trek fan and this film does look epic. I enjoyed the first one a lot and found it highly entertaining, apart from the overuse of lens flares. I have two concerns with this sequel. Is it going to copy the basic plot of Dark Knight Rises which seems to be happening a lot lately? The poster certainly was based on this.

    Also with reusing Khan, although I'm excited about that, I'd much prefer they step into new territory and do something new. However, I will be watching it, I am looking forward to it but I'll also avoid any more trailers so there's little spoilerage.

  9. what a bunch of whining %^$# here! Crying about Startrek being raped, or a knife twisting in de dead corpse of trek… This happens every freaking time a new Trek is launched, and it's not to every trekky's liking. Be greatfull that Trek isn't dead, as it might wel have been after Enterprise's cancellation!! And yeah, to draw more crowd (and money, the only reason a company can have to keep investing in something) in to the theaters JJ throws a lot of action and explosions our way, but maybe that's not such a bad thing! I had to get used to the new Trek as much as the next guy (only accepted the fact it wiped almost 50 years of series films and books with one film by holding on to the alternate timeline vs the changing of the timeline theory, but i am now able to recognize that these films are actually pretty awesome and can't wait for this one to be released. If you don't like it, good for you! But stop whining and crying about it! Thát wont do Trek any favours, regardless of what Trek you're into.
