Are many of you going to "spoil" yourselves next week?
 
Hello all, I am new to this forum. I have been reading material on here for a few months now, but finally decided to stop being lazy and set up an account. So, pleased to meet all of you.

With the film premiering next week in Australia, we all know what is coming. All mysteries will be revealed.

I, for one, think this film is definitely going to have some tie to Wrath of Khan. But, the constant speculation has gotten almost too hard to take.

I want so badly to just sneak a peak and find out the true answers. I think we all want to know which theory is correct, etc.

So, how many of you are going to "get spoiled" next week?

Perhaps a better question would be how many of you think it will be possible to avoid spoilers, especially if the villain turns out to be a certain passenger on the Botany Bay?

I'm not going to actively pursue spoilers but I'm afraid getting unintentionally spoiled will be unavoidable, unless I stop visiting every website I like & get off the internet completely until I see the movie.

Somebody, somewhere is bound to write in big bold letters IT WAS KHAN ALL ALONG, I TOLD YOU SO or WHY DID SPOCK HAVE TO DIE?? :p

Yes, I may have to recuse myself from TrekBBS, my board, a few other boards, and Facebook, Twitter, any news blog, friends' phone calls, and any assorted texts for the week between Australia's release and the U.S.' release.

Well, one thing is certain, several people will settle arguments and debate all over the internet. Then, we can debate about the next installment :)

Based on the trailers, it looks like "Cumberbatch is Khan" is true in a metaphorical sense.

Absolutely I'll read every spoiler I can find.

I'm going to do my best to ignore my inner-child...
(which is probably doomed from the outset)

At least untill I see the movie myself.

I'll avoid any lengthy descriptions of the plot for sure but I'll mostly read bite sized tidbits but that's it.

I was super enthusiastic about this one.. but then I saw the last trailer where it seems that Starfleet has made an impossibly large and retarded-looking ship and that put a huge damper on my enthusiasm. :(

There are only two things that make me think that Harrison is just not a straight up Khan 2.0:

1. Khan had North Indian ancestry in the original timeline. But, could be a loophole to that. Take a look at what wikipedia said:


In "Space Seed" writer Carey Wilber's original plot treatment, the character of Khan was a Nordic superman named Harold Erricsen. The first draft of the script introduced the character as John Ericssen—

Would they break television canon? Of course they would.

2. The film Cloverfield was long rumored to be a Godzilla or some other legendary monster film. Cloverfield was said to be a "codeword" Of course, we all know that ended up being the actual name of the film. J.J. Abrams misdirected by not misdirecting at all.

So, what I am really trying to say is maybe John Harrison is John Bon Jovi. After all, he is Wanted....Dead or Alive.
