Looks cool! It's nice to see them building on the events from the first movie to good effect. Me like.

Ugh. It's just a nightmare of Spock's, where he saves his mother but the ship is destroyed. It tells us nothing new. Bleh!

False alarm, people. Go back to what you were doing.

Tut tut. It tells us that Spock is still suffering from guilt. It hints that perhaps the Elders or the Katric Arc could feature in the next movie. It could be hinting that Spock is still not overly comfortable with Kirk as Captain and feels that it's his responsibility to keep Kirk from stumbling and making a catastrophic mistake.

Could John Harrison be a human accidentally possessed by an angry Vulcan Elder's Katra (seems a bit too similar to the first movie to carry out another revenge plot though)?

It could be hinting at all sorts of lunatic possibilities. To quote Uhura, 'This isn't reality; this is fantasy!'

Nono, Orci & Co continue to bring us a new alternate universe with every new film. Y'know, to keep things fresh.

I never thought of Harrison carrying a bitter, twisted Vulcan's Katra! That's a great idea.

Spock is still upset. This might have some consequences for “Harrison case”.
He might even consider "logical" what Harrison is doing and goes against Kirk at some point of the movie.

URGH......I do not like the artwork.

it is kind of too cartoonish.I wish the characters are drawn the same way as their star trek ongoing counterparts. The artwork in the ongoing series is beautiful and well done. However this will do.

So Nu Spock is still upset about his mother, I am not suprised. The second movie is set 6 months after the events of the first film so it is understandable that he is still in the grieving stage. This might also give us an insight of why he has no regards for his life.

Him willing to die in a volcano and jumping off cliff and all.

He didn't jump off the cliff.

Spock could have survivor's syndrome personified in the death of his mother. If only 10,000 did make it off that planet, a lot of them may be wondering if it was luck or logic that saved them. And why them? They may also have a particularly tough time dealing with the mindlessness of it all. There was no logic in what Nero did. This stoic race was almost wiped out by an act of pure passion for no reason other than the blind hatred of one individual -- Spock Prime, and something that happened in another universe. Vulcans also might not be as jaded towards senseless violence as, say, humans are, and it's particularly tougher for them to cope with than they expected. After all, they do feel.

And, if Spock's still feeling that bad about it, how do you think Chekov feels? If he'd just been able to get a lock a tenth of a second sooner -- . Don't think, "Is there anything different I could've done?" hasn't run through his mind at night more than a few times?

Risky Business starts with the same line "The dream is always the same."

Risky Business, however, has a much more fascinating payoff.

A building in San Francisco - the Financial District, at roughly the intersection of Battery Street and Clay.
