Any spoilers on Spock-Prime's fate?

Re: World Premiere/Advance screening discussions [SPOILERS GUARANTEED]

I'm requesting a tiny spoiler:

What color are the new Enterprise's bussard collectors? Red? Blue? Dark with Blue Spots??

Fo those lucky buggers you have been to the world premiere - firstly, I am very jealous! Secondly, I am very interested to know what the reaction of the rest of the audience was like - particularly these mysterious "taste makers"

I'd like to know definitively if this is an Alternate Universe. And if it is, in what major ways does it diverge? Specifically, is Captain Pike killed?

Minor request for music and moment spoilers:

Is the Alex Courage theme in the opening or closing titles?

Is there a "boarding the Enterprise" moment like in TMP where we get a good long look at the ship? (another place I might expect the Courage theme in some form).

"Taste makers" includes the current young Aussie soapie stars - whose former colleague from "Home and Away" is featuring as George Kirk, after all - plus various media identities, pro reviewers, famous faces, etc.

Tony Squires, a newspaper journalist turned breakfast radio announcer, was seeking a "date" on yesterday's morning show, to fill the other half of his free double pass, with Trekkies and Trekkers from all over greater Sydney ringing in to offer their services to him, ie. to fill him in on the night of all the ST factoids between the end of TOS and the coming of ENT.

The nightly TV news shows are featuring studio interviews with JJ and the main stars (Pine, Quinto, Cho), and showed Eric Bana live, walking along the red carpet and chatting about his role. They said it was unspooling right now.

Very pleased to hear that Nimoy features a lot, rather than just in an extended cameo.

Shame about Shat. I really thought it would have been a good idea to have him do the "Space. The Final Frontier" speech at the end. Talking of which, do we hear it from anyone else?

And what of the alternate universe issue. Is Shatner Trek left "unwiped"?

Also, any 24th Century bits?

Thanks for the info!!!

Re: World Premiere/Advance screening discussions [SPOILERS GUARANTEED]

Okay, here are some questions:

How does Nero end up in the Klingon prison?

How are the Klingons presented?

Any references to Kirk's time on Tarsus IV, or Gary Mitchell? (personally I doubt this)

Is the Enterprise a "brand new" starship when it is launched with Kirk on board, as we've heard?

Is Kirk a cadet when he comes aboard or not?

What references are there to Enterprise (besides the bit about Scotty and Admiral Archer's beagle)?

Just what is Nero's plan in the 23rd century?

What happens to Pike at the end of the movie?

IS VULCAN DESTROYED???

Re: World Premiere/Advance screening discussions [SPOILERS GUARANTEED]

From Odo Itals's thread


Captain Pike goes aboard the Romulan ship, Spock is left in command, and Kirk leads the mission to destroy the weapon [...].
And this is where big changes start, separating this movie’s reality from the rest of the franchise. Nero, the leader of the Romulans from the future, has created an alternate reality. A point that is hit over the head a few times, by Spock & Uhura, by Ambassador Spock to young Kirk....


Obviously, the alternate reality has NOTHING to do with the design changes, because it happens well after the newly designed ship, bridge, uniforms etc. are shown to us but is rather a vehicle to make future changes possible.

I would like that (I hate the idea of this being some "ENT sequel")
It also would seem that the design changes might not be explained in any way. Good.

Seems it's a remake AND a reboot after all. w00t
it would also mean that Kirk's backstory is the way "it was supposed to happen", even in the old timeline.

That doesn't really make sense. Why would Pike going aboard the Romulan ship create the alternate reality? Surely the destruction of the Kelvin would?

Nimoy does the speech at the end.

There are 24th Century bits.
