Nope, the Enterprise did not leave Vulcan at warp! Impulse only.
Really? I'm pretty sure I saw the warp graphic out the window when Spock told Kirk to get out of his chair.

Actually, I've just come back from my second viewing and paid attention to it. Not at warp.

I'll triple-check tomorrow

Maybe we can chalk the awkward ranges up to a clever TWoK homage... no? Anybody?

I have to wait until tomorrow night to see it, but can anyone comment on the music? I know about the bit in the end credits, but how was the rest of the score? The opening theme? Any fanfare when they show the Enterprise?
The score was good. There's a new main theme that runs through the movie and is very catchy (I caught myself whistling it!). There is no opening theme as such; the movie has a "teaser segment" with its own music and then a title card with a music cue.

The reveal of the Enterprise is incorporated into the score of the scene that immediately precedes it - it's an organic outgrowth, you'll understand it when you see it. It is perhaps not as... obvious as cue as in TMP, but the music fits the scene perfectly.
Thanks for the info, I appreciate it. I swear this is going to be the longest 24 hours until I see this movie. I cannot believe I am so amped up about it. I feel just like I did when TMP opened. I am so envious of those who have seen this movie already - stupid international date line - d'oh!!

Ah, the advantage of a cinema in Brussels: nobody can deicde what language they want to see the movie in, so in the end it's English with subtitles.

And that prevents him from choosing to go back intentionally to fix all this....how?

It's simple. Slingshot around the sun to go back to a point before the timeline diverged and prevent the destruction of the Kelvin, presuming that's the focal point in the timeline (another argument), then go back to the point in the timeline before this whole thing started, apparently the destruction of Romulus. Prevent that, or at least mitigate the results somehow, to the point where Nero doesn't go on a time-spanning rampage, and bingo, timeline restored.

But then, JJ wouldn't have his own Star Trek universe to do with what he wants.
If you had seen the movie, you'd know that what you just said is total BS.

And not enough of Pike.

I loved Sulu's first attempt to bring the Enterprise to warp-speed...


BTW: Isn't it great that the bridge has that big ass window instead of a view-screen
