Wow, the ship really looks like it takes a beating.

I enjoyed the last one and I'll be in theatres to watch this one as well. You win, Abrams.

Why wouldn't someone just stun him while he's standing around like that?
 
2013-02-04 07:53:31 AM  
I'm looking forward to it, he did a good job with the last one
 
2013-02-04 07:56:07 AM  
Well they seem to be destroying ships faster than the first ST series. Will Abrams third movie have an Enterprise-A?
 
2013-02-04 08:11:09 AM  
I was underwhelmed by the last Star Trek movie, but this trailer looks very tasty.

The promos have all been heavy on effects and light on plot or characterization, which does not bode well.

How would you suggest they show plot or character development in a less than minute long preview???

Will this Moriarty be a retarded gay man? Because I really enjoyed that character decision. He should have been even LOUDER and ZANIER.

Or the TV show "Enterprise."  In one episode, the Enterprise takes on four ships and gets curb stomped.  For the rest of the season, the ship is not at 100% since something is always in need of repair.

I don't know. All that "I'm better at everything than you" stuff sounds like late 20th century Eugenics talk. Abrams has straight up lied about key plot points before (a respectable tactic with how many leaks and spoilers there are these days). The first movie was an action blockbuster for the masses sprinkled with just enough superficial nostalgia to placate the majority of Trek fans. It also showed that Abrams and company have no sense of restraint or tact when it comes to treading Star Trek's sacred ground (milking the Kobayashi Maru for vital plot points, destroying Vulcan, turning everyone into teen prodigies rather than experienced crew, Tyler Perry). The formula was wildly successful both financially and critically.

With that in mind, is there any good reason whatsoever NOT to center this movie around Khan?

And that was even with the couple of episodes where spatial distortions or whatever blew holes in it and then it was magically fine the next episode.

Yeah, everyone seems to be ignoring that line in order to keep their not Khan predictions up.  If he said I'm better at everything NOW, maybe Mitchell.

Even if you do a great job with Khan, damn, that's big shoes to fill.  Not a good gamble to take

What I find most interesting from the opening scene is that with those Union Flags flying, some version of the UK must still exist. ST: Enterprise certainly established that its point in time the Royal Navy still existed, but TNG, DS9 and Voyager sort of imply that at least by their point in time there are no sovereign states on Earth. I don't recall if TOS said one way or the other.

It's something only a Trek nerd would notice or debate, but I found it interesting.

The Royal Navy still existed during Enterprise.  Although, that was pre-federation.

Hard to say. We get just the crumbs in the trailer, and the original story in TOS was excellent. If, and that's a large leap of faith, if they can utilize the actors in this movies and emphasize the story backed up by the effects it could be even better than Wrath of Khan. A man who become god. That's a hell of a premise.

Difficult was I wasn't even joking.  Sybok fits fairly well, and is a great way to troll the fanbase who all think it's Khan.

People in the Star Trek universe have always clung pretty tightly to their heritage though.  Look at all the walking ethnic stereotypes: Scotty, Chekov, Miles O'Brian, Keiko (whatever her last name was before she married O'Brian), the Irish chief engineer on the first season of TNG who way overdid it on that "everybody act drunk" episode, so they had to replace him with Geordi.
Even if there isn't really any actual sovereignty, people might just have those up for sybolism

Robert Orci is a writer on it so the story will be lame and be nonsensical but it'll look pretty.

But Gary Seven wasn't better.  He was from the Copper Age and educated in the future.  The only thing that made him "better" was a sonic screwdri---er...supercharged pen.  And a giant computer in his office.

If the plot of a film cannot be summarized in less than two sentences, it's likely way too complicated.

Let's just take Trek II: Captain Kirk must stop his most cunning advisory from unleashing a weapon that has the power to destroy all life on a planet.

That tells me way more than any of the ads for the new Trek film.

I would be up for this. He was repaired by aliens wasn't he; that could account for the superb jumping abilities maybe? However, I think Karl Urban let slip it was Mitchell in an interview, although granted that could be misdirection.

Of course, could be he's playing a Mooninite. I understand their vertical leap is beyond all measurement.
