What if we see a sombrero in the film? Will you walk out of the movie or watch it all the way through?

Re: Sombrero

What if it's limited to a hat dance with Orion slave girls?

No, I will accept only derby-wearing characters in this film. But any other type of hat -- from an akubra to a vueltiao -- will exclude the film from my personal canon. Actually, the only things I recognize as canon right now is Worf's appearance on Webster, Jackson Roykirk on Team Knight Rider, and Spock on the Great American Smoke-Out poster.

Re: Sombrero

Does that mean Q isn't canon? HE wore a sombrero on the bridge of the ENT-D!

A sombrero being in the movie is the only thing that can save it from being the train wreck I know it will be.

I was cockblocked by a pesky 24 hour ban. But I've since been released on my own recognizance, so I can return to being an unproductive member of society.

I will wear my sombrero proudly to the premiere of Star Trek XI. I will take the sombrero off before the movie starts, partly out of respect to the movie itself, and partly because the guy behind me will want to kick my ass, but will no doubt be afraid that I will overpower him with my huge muscles, and I don't want to place the poor bastard in that awkward position.

I don't care if there's a sombrero in the movie or not. If they are so ballsy as to risk total box office failure by not including a sombrero in the film, that's their call.

Do baseball caps count? They are canon, after all!
