'For I have returned.'
 
Wouldn't this line from the first trailer lead us to believe that there is some amount of time travel? Returned from where?

Why would it imply time travel? I may just mean I have returned to the place I used to live? I have returned from the bathroom? :vulcan:

For I have returned from the bathroom, and I will have. my. vengeance. for whoever left the toilet seat up!

Yeah, he could have returned from just about anywhere!

Is it bad that I heard this in the Cumberbatch voice, and it was the most epic thing I could imagine?

It depends entirely upon which person Harrison is addressing when he makes that statement.

Given the spoilers out, then it could be more of a "You thought I was gone, that you were safe from ME? How cute" sort of moment to the phrase.

People throw around the word "facepalm" pretty loosely these days, but in this case...

What does it say about Classic Trek that the first thing people go too when a character utters a unusual or over the top line is "Must be time travel"?

Could mean, "You exiled me for my crimes...and now you will regret it, for I have returned!"

Could mean, "You thought I was gone, and you'd never have to deal with me again...but you were wrong, and now you will pay, for I have returned!"

Or it could mean "The Earth will tremble, for I have returned!! AND I AM KHAN NOONIAN SINGH!!"

Who knows. ('cept those lucky folks in Australia...)

I can understand why he'd want revenge against whoever sent him there.
