This looks amazing! The other trailers were short on details but this has them and the story looks very, VERY interesting from this 45-year old geek's perspective!

Looks kind of dorky too me, but if you think it’s good you are probably right. I don’t know anything about Star Trek.

I like the one where the vintage car is racing down the street. Something is chasing it with red and blue strobe lights. The car goes over the cliff and the young kid barely gets out in time.

The police vehicle is a flying machine, the cop looks like a futuristic soldier and he says “What is your name?”

The little boy stands up and proclaims proudly “My name is James Tiberius Kirk!”

THAT is a perfect scene.

Maybe I am too old or not hip enough but it looks boring to me.

I’ve been getting interested in Star Trek: Enterprise on TV lately though...

Yeah, if you are not an original series affecianado, it will look dorky.

The original series was basically a western done in space.

Lest someone gets the wrong idea, it was my favorite show ever. I’ve seen every single episode at least 10 times.

Then I got a life. ;)

Star Trek ran when I was age 5 - 9. I saw one episode from the first year when I was 5 and it scared the crap out of me. I avoided it from then on.

Then, when I was 10, it started running in syndication on weekdays after school. Watched one show and became hooked.

Like you, I probably watched every episode at least 10 times.

Looks like I'll have to mark the calendar.

Possibly a very interesting Star Trek movie, especially for those of us who remember when the original Star Trek came out and watched it.

There’s a premise that I see a lot in the movies these days. It’s one that proposes the best leaders were the worst kids. That’s NOT a great message to send out to all the kids that will go to see this movie.

I wonder how far they will take this premise into the movie. Is he a rag tag scoundrel until he is gifted leadership? Once again, not a very good message for children viewing the movie.

My college roommate was a Trekkie. We’d come back to the dorm from our night jobs at the Pla-More Bowling Center in LaCrosse, and watch the reruns. I got hooked, had to have more, and spent a small fortune at the used book store on more Trek stories.

Introduced my then boyfriend, now spouse, to the series, and raised both our children as Trekkies. Haven’t quite gotten our grandson hooked - yet - but I’m sure we will. :-)

We’ve seen the movies, the original series, and all the spinoffs, multiple times.

Wet blanket alert.

This looks like the recent attempt to re-do the classic 1960 film "The Time Machine." The 1960 original had top-rate actors, Wells' greaty story, imaginative F/X, and holds-up very well despite a small budget. The 2004 remake is huge, loud, a departure from the Wells novel, had a big budget, and is a loser that disappeared after six weeks at the box office.

Hollywood's attempt to remake iconic stories has failed 95% of the time. The new Trek contunues the trend. It is clearly a Dress Up movie: young actors (kids) playing grown-up with newer toys. The original Trek actors were stage trained and had the deep baritone voices from that training. The trailers for the new Trek show, well, basically, kids, dressed-up as Kirk, Spock, et al, backed by ILM's eye-popping but ultimately empty F/X. They have sharp, alto voices and have clearly been TV-only actors. The Trailers show the film to be the 98th remake of the same story. This presents a problem for whomever sees it. Kids watching will go for the F/X. Older folks (like me) cannot help but compare it to what has come before: good stories that relied primarily upon experienced actors and writers to hold the audience. Frankly, watching the trailers is, for me, uncompelling. I laughed at Quinto acting as Spock, frankly. Nimoy is a one-of in that role, which he played with a twinkle and from a background of years of theater. Quinto comes across as a kid auditioning for a high school production of Star Trek. The kid playing Kirk is the bratty kid you knew in junior high who always bullied the weaker kids. Some role rewrite. Sorry.

Abrams has been a greatly successful director and producer, but this film is clearly about noise and F/X, not story. Abrams has reinvented Kirk to be a dangerous misfit who is sent packing to Star Fleet before he does any more damage. This is the reverse of the original role, a man of intense but controlled feelings who felt duty and honor were the highest callings.

This movie will open big and then vanish.

Looks great to me. You know there has always been two view of the future. That portrayed by Star Trek and that portrayed by Mad Max. I am afraid we are headed towards Thunderdome faster than Star Fleet.

Is it just me or does the villain look like a chubby Carville?

Actually in times of war some of our best leaders have been people who were misfits as kids. They don’t fit into polite society well, but gawd are they good commanders when it counts. Grant comes to mind as does Patton and Napolean. None were good with the polite society stuff, but they could win wars. As could Halsey, LeMay, Montegomery, Forest and others.

ps: yes voyager really really really sucked. seriously sucked. What did you expect from an actress captain who is a flaming liberal whose show had to be rescued by an eye candy wife of a republican caught in a wife swapping sex scandal that allowed a sacrificial candidate to accidentally become senator and then run for president based on associalitions with radical left wing enemies of liberty organizations.

yes voyager really sucked.

I’m just hoping the movie script wasn’t written by someone who never saw Star Trek.

The last movie was bad.

The last couple of TV series were bad.

It might be time for “the Negotiator.”

"That portrayed by Star Trek and that portrayed by Mad Max. I am afraid we are headed towards Thunderdome faster than Star Fleet."

According to the "Star Trek canon", the Star Trek universe got it's start during a "Thunderdome" period, which was brought to a close when Zefrem Cochran's "wildcat" invention of "warp drive" led to a "galactic contact" by the Vulcans.

actually my understanding is that the decisionmakers at Paramount waited for the contract with Brandon and Braga to expire in order to bring in new blood.

J.J. Abrams is the one responsible for this.

Keep in mind, they have been redoing the special effects of the original serices via CGI.

The only way to save the franchise is to get far away from the PC stuff. (PS tiny spoiler, but Lenard Nimoy is supposedly appearing in this one. If you know what happened in the episode “Yesteryear” in the animated series...Seleck(sp?) makes an appearance.)

IOW the same Kirk who read the “We the People...” with passion as words with meaning, or the Uhura who explained the natives of the planet were worshiping the “Son of God” not the “sun”, or the crew that kills off Landreu, or the holds that liberty for all is a voice for the individual and not some collectivist BS then we will be on the right track.

On the other hand if they go prodeviant and fully collectivist nuclear holocost and french wus socialist, then no amount of snazzy special effects will save it. (seriously some fan based internet productions, per sheppard smith [figure out why he would report that one] are portraying some relative of kirks as a homosexual in the future)

Within some paramters, I agree with your comments.  In the movies the scoundrel is played off as being a misfit their whole lives.  You don't see them attending college and knuckling down to obtain a degree.

What you see is them stealing, pulling all sorts of shady deals, and then taking over to lead a group with no self-discipline or education to make that possible.

Here's the part you left out of your comments.

Dwight D. Eisenhower - U.S. Military Academy - West Point
Ulyssis S. Grant - U.S. Military Academny - West Point
George Patton -
U.S. Military Academy, a master's degree in international affairs from George Washington University and the Senior Managers in Government Program at Harvard University.
Bull Halsey - The U.S. Naval Academy - Also studied at the Naval War College in the mid 1930s
Curtis E. Lemay -
Ohio State University where he studied civil engineering and was a member of the National Society of Pershing Rifles
Bernard Montgomery - Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst
Nathan Bedford Forest III - U.S. Military Academy - West Point
