Re: What's with all the Union Jacks in the trailer?
I think the British government should ask Paramount for a formal apology over this, as well as a promise that the mistake will be corrected whatever the cost. If they don't, then Parliament should ban the movie in the UK. I smell diplomatic incident!
By the 22nd century the Monarchy was dissolved and Parliment redesigned the flag in a different albiet similar pattern.
Since Star Trek is fiction
... lets rewrite British future history to fit Star Trek on screen.
We'll call it the "Abrams flag" or "Abrams jack."
Then let's have the British eat "french fries" in the 22nd century, too. And while we're at it, let's end all that biscuit confusion and have them say, "cookies."
