Do the scenes with young Kirk and Spock work?

I'm assuming you mean the non adult kirk/spock scenes, yes the spock scene i enjoyed more, but they both work, and they are just the right length.

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

Does anyone know if Bruce Greenwood has a three picture deal like the 'Big Seven'?

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

Do we see any Klingon ships in the film? I heard Nero destroys quite a lot of them at one point.

Is Kirk's boarding the Enterprise his first time in space? (not counting when he was born on the shuttle).

Is the starship he sees in Iowa the Enterprise or not?

Are Kirk and Spock classmates at the academy?

Does Nero attack Earth?

A thought that's just occurred to me: We know that a clone of Earth exists in the episode Miri. Well if there can be another Earth, why not another Vulcan? Maybe in the new timeline, such a duplicate world could become the new home of the refugees from the prime Vulcan? They'd have no trouble interbreeding with the planet's indigenous Vulcans, thus ensuring their race's continued survival in the Trek universe.
That would be cheese.
I should imagine Trek's well used to cheese by now. I would never have suggested this if the producers hadn't gone completely over the top in wiping out the original. Not a very good move, IMO.

1. Is there any mention of Robert April in the movie?

2. Is anything seen in the Countdown comic also seen in the movie?

Thanks!

I haven't seen it but from what I have read the movie makes it clear that Pike is the first captain of the Enterprise so I really really doubt there is anything about April.

3) Are Uncle Frank and Sam Kirk seen in the film?
I'm fairly sure they are. I remember reading that we'd see Sam at some point. Also that Frank, the abusive, violent drunk, would be the one to raise the boys this time (don't know why Winona wouldn't...she *is* their mother, after all), which would explain why Kirk is such a loser when we first meet him.

It's not a perm rank at the end of the film, they specifically state it is relief Captain for Pike.
Good.

I know I keep harping on this, but I would hope that all of you reading this would realize how totally stupid it would be to give a fresh-faced cadet the permanent rank of Captain.

The don't play his injuries off to be serious at all, its implied temporary.
VERY good. Pike is cool. Glad to see he'll recover. I wonder if Kirk and Spock will serve with him again?

I'm pretty sure Spock is the "original" first officer. He promotes Spock up to acting captain when he leaves the ship.
So much for Number One, then... Would have been nice to see who they might have tapped to play her.

Come to think of it, so much for the Talosians, since apparently this all means that "The Menagerie" can't happen as it originally did.
I know this is JJ's universe, but this is awfully unfair to the late Jeffrey Hunter, Majel, and of course, whoever it was who played Veena.

"Beep beep"

Is Rachel Nichols' role just a glorified cameo? Does Diora Baird have a cameo?

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

Do we get to see the Enterprise launching from the surface?

Do we get to see any Klingon ships?

Does the film open with the attack on the Kelvin? Or is there something before it?

Does the film open with a TWOK style In the 23rd Century... or something similar?

What are the opening credits like?

Any chance of someone posting some actual spoilers again?

Such as - Is Cadet Kirk merely an older undergradute held back from graduation due to the kobiashi maru or did he graduate the 4 year program, serve a few years on the Republic or Farrugut and now goes back for the "5th" command year when the events of the movie unfold.....
I don't believe they are at the point of graduation yet, and the events in the movie immediately follow the Kobayashi Maru incident, so there's no time lapse.

Edit: Those events are in their 3rd year at the academy btw... well... at least Kirk's 3rd year, maybe 4th for everyone else.

Thanks for the spoilers. Not the answer I wanted to hear, as I always kinda thought starfleet academy in the tos era was 4 years, then serve, then go back for a command school graduate type program,

Could someone who saw the movie tell me what Kirk and Spock's first encounter with each other is like?

Thanks!

I'll just say this, I'm in my senior year of high school, representing the target audience for this movie, and I've never heard of the term "sawbones" until now. Considering I don't know what it is, I can pretty much tell you no one else under 25 will either.
Hank Williams Jr. sang:

Lordy, I have loved some ladies
And I have loved Jim Beam
And they both tried to kill me, in 1973
When that doctor asked me,
"Son, how'd you get in this condition?"
I said, "Hey, sawbones, I'm just carryin' on
And old family tradition"
