JJ Abrams On The New Star Trek Trailer

We open on the young Kirk (Jimmy Bennett) hurtling down a desert highway in a stolen car. There's nothing overtly Star Trek or even overtly science fiction and that, says Abrams, was kind of the point. "I felt that it would begin the movie in a way that felt unexpected and sort of grounded."

L: Felix Why did you come in the thread discussing the walkthrough then?! ote]   I'm curious to see what people think of the trailer so far, without wanting to get a blow-by-blow "this shot is 27 minutes into the film....." analysis. It's a fine line, but it's (usually) possible. ... Read More

Mistakes
Somebody else already mentioned this, but on the Carnage page the comment says the ship is the Enterprise at Vulcan, when clearly it's the Kelvin, and therefore must be from when the Kelvin was attacked. Also, on page 18 the comment initially says that it depicts Kirk and Spock, when a quote immediately following that confirms that it's Kirk and Sulu. ... Read More

Looks good!
Is it possible for people to comment on a star trek film and not be overtly pedantic and nerdy? So far we have had complaints about colours of the actors eyes, ship's names and wether or not Klingons should have Helmets. Anyway.. about the film, looks very good. I like the discovery and voyage side of star trek, and this seems to have plenty epic scale sci fi to ogle at. On the negative, if i had just built a gazillion dollar starship i wouldnt entrust it to a bunch of college graduates wea... Read More

RE: Klingon Helmets??
L: choochoonesme I wonder... In the original series, klingons looked very much like normal people. Iwonder if the idea is, they used helmets on younger to grow theyr head in a certain way as you see the helmet looks as though it has the head sculpture he reason the klingons look human in the 60's tv show is because they didn't have the budget to create an alien looking make up effect even though Gene Roddenberry wanted one. one of the first things they did when they were making Star ... Read More

RE: Star Trek Trailer Breakdown
Love Trek but not entirely sold on this trailer. I'm all for 're-imagining' the series (it worked wonders for BSG!) but I just cant get over the fact they are all still in the 60's style outfits. It makes them look like space-age air-stewards. Has the Enterprise been sneakily recommisioned as tour ship? ... Read More

RE: Star Trek Trailer Breakdown
Got to say it looks amazing and cannot wait to see it. Just one concern though - certain characters have the wrong colour eyes.   Kirk with baby blues? McCoy with brown eyes?   Wouldn't it have been easy, for pure continuity sake, to put in contacts and have them line up with the original actors?  Pedantic for sure, but it appears that every other continuity concern has been adressed so I wonder why not that?   So what gives JJ? ... Read More

RE: Klingons in helmets???
Well the trailer worked for me, a guy who has had absolutely no interest in Star Trek before now very much wants to see this new film. If J.J can make several million others feel the same way, as well as keeping the core fanbase happy, he could be onto a winner I watched the trailer last night I thought that Ben Cross was Leonard Nimoy ... Read More

Klingons in helmets???
Klingons aren't afraid to confront their enemies, so why do they need helmets??? In Klingon, "Qab jIH naghIl" means "Face me if you dare!" Where is their honour?...or are they just hiding the fact that they've lost their ridges thanks to the events in "Enterprise"? And what's with the flimsy fence surrounding the Enterprise's construction site? ... Read More
