Re: New trekID international trailer wed

This trailer is really action packed, but there's a Nolanesque vibe going through the whole thing and that's probably good. I bet there are theater goers saying "this is star trek"?

Did you ever think you'd see such a fully realized, solid, believable world like this in a Trek movie? Love the shot with Kirk looking out on the Klingon horizon.

This may be the first trek movie since I was kid that I only know half the story to. I guess that's what they wanted and it's probably a good thing too.

For the traditional Trek fundamentalists...yes it doesn't look like Trek, but what does that mean really? Its a different "regime" it SHOULD be different, I don't understand the fuss...if they had made it exactly like the old movie series, then they'd say it wasn't original.

Exploration: File under beating a dead horse. Most of the exploration was a sidebar to the real Trek stories and sometimes even that was within a parable, so exploration was not the central theme. The movies explored little...Sulu was doing scientific tests on Excelsior (but that wouldn't have excited people as a story), Genesis was explored by Reliant and Grissom (again not the central story), even V'Ger--as alien as it was--went to Earth. Every Trek movie but ONE had scenes on Earth.

It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. Carl Sagan
