Are we really calling Star Trek Into Darkness STiD as an abbreviation??
I'm calling it "the movie" or "the next movie" as often as not, but STID does have the advantage of being an accurate initialism of the movie's title.

It looks too much like STD for me...
Believe it or not, that similarity has been pointed out a time or two (or forty-two) already.

Would you describe the discomfort as an itch... or more of a burning sensation?
The motto of the Corbettite Order seems to be Ite Animose... a Latin phrase that can be translated as "go courageously." Alternatively, it can be rendered as "boldly go," which bears a striking resemblance to a phrase heard during the opening credits of a certain popular television series.
