Re: Accent. It sounded more restrained and not his usual accent.

I think people have completely forgotten the fact that his character might be brand new to the trek universe.
No, they haven't.

Re: Did anybody notice Cumberbatch's accent in the Trailer?

I got the impression that after First Contact the world became extremely globalised in a short time to the point where English became the first language. I think Data refers to French as a dead language in season 1? So I'm guessing other languages are kind of like Latin, Welsh etc.

How many threads is this, this morning, for serenitytrek1 to comment on trivia from the trailer?

How many preexisting threads do we have in this forum intended for commentary about the trailer?

I guess I am the Non partisan Film fan who just happens to love star trek.

While you guys are drooling over the non stop action.I am looking at other quality things like the actor's acting.

This thread was about his accent though and whether or not he is a British Character. Not his acting.

And if we had got Benicio Del Toro as originally intended, we would have had a villain with a Puerto Rican 'Spanish' accent!!

French has never been referred to as a dead language in Trek at all. Data referred to it as an "archaic" language but that is completely different from being dead.

Yeah I know but an actor that speaks in a particular accent is still part of him been in character and therefore him acting.


Thing is that Cumberbatch's accent in the film is very British (in fact very English). so there is a good chance that the villain is from London.

Anyway I am just happy a few people on this board understand me.

Is it very British? I don't think so. Not as much as the French Man's.

No he didn't really sound all that british in star trek, In fact his charcater is french.
His character is French, but Patrick Stewart used his normal, British accent while playing him. Same with Professor X.

If they wanted French, should have cast Geneviève Bujold.

Oh wait...

that what? I am a die hard star wars fan and star trek hater in disguise who has come on this board to destroy Trek?


I am just surprised that I am the only one who took notice of other things that did not contain action and CGI.

You noticed that a British actor is speaking with a British accent.
