I should have said "potential easter egg". I see no risk in mentioning them, since there are supposedly as many deliberate red herrings as easter eggs for the new movie in IDW's "Star Trek Ongoing", and Bob Orci is seeding both types into the comics' storylines.

A potential easter egg that turns out to be misinformation is no spoiler.

Cupcake's real name, McCoy's ex-girlfriend, Kirk's brother and Aurelan, Sulu's recruitment, the origin of tribbles, Keenser's species name, the presence of Rand, Zahra, Mallory, Boma, O'Neill, Linstrom and Chapel, Sarek's dark secret: any or all of these may turn out to be easter eggs and/or red herrings. There hasn't been a blanket ban on the discussion of "ST Ongoing" in movie threads - because we have no way of knowing which ones will end up being in the film. Ditto the cover art for the "Countdown to Darkness" mini-series. Wild interpretations from fans, but if you want to be totally spoiler free, you really need to just avoid places like TrekBBS altogether.
