What for? He hasn't told us anything we didn't know yesterday.

Odo Ital, OTOH, has.

Someone who has seen the movie can certainly tell us: what is the opening theme like? At what point in the movie do we clearly hear elements of the TOS theme?

Maybe in the next movie a Vulcan 2 will be established. In time people will forget and it will be like Vulcan 1

Um, he does...

Odo Itals's breakdown could have easily been put together by conjecture based on already available info, photos and the trailers so no reason to knock IANO in my opinion.

So far, even though I haven't wanted to read these spoilers, I'm really impressed! It looks like they've had a key attention to detail in some places which is great.

No more Vulcan in the nu-Universe. It's still there in the Original one.

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?
Erm...is anyone gonna answer any of these questions? Of course, what the filmmakers have done with Vulcan already buggers things up drastically for me, but I'm still curious.

Well the buzz definitely looks promising. However if the love for No Country For Old Men and hate for Waterworld has taught me anything, it's that I'm just going to have to wait and see for myself. At least my optimism level has spiked a little.

"It also kicks off the real split between this universe and the Trek universe we all know. Without any cop-outs, Abrams and his team establish that with this single event everything has changed. In short, it’s the perfect set up for a reboot. It can (and does, with Nimoy’s appearance as Spock Prime, as he’s listed in the credits) respect the originals while being free to do its own thing."

"Everything we have seen still exists, just not in this reality. I think it’s pretty genius, actually, but only if they stick to this universe now. I’d hate to see them go back and forth with the existing Trek reality and this one in further sequels. I like the world (or maybe universe is a better term considering the material) that Abrams and his team has created here. I like the cast he assembled, I like the way this new universe turns some old Trek landmarks on their heads, while keeping true to what’s really important to each character."


This substantiates basically everything a small group of TrekBBS' more level-headed posters (yours truly humbly included) tried to drive home over the last couple of weeks...

Re: A True Reboot Creating A New Trek Universe? - Spoilers!

It all sounds positive to me, I hope we get many more movies in this new reality. I may end up liking this new universe better than the old one. I can only imagine what TNG would look like in this universe, or DS9 etc...

The title is a question which suggests it might just be my mad ravings.

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

A few questions:

What's Nero's fate and how is he dealt with?
Does Spock Prime stay in this reality?
How good was Simon Pegg as Scotty, and what engineering/techy goodness does he get to do?
