Comming soon.net has a write up of the first 9 minuets. Not too much is revealed but we do know that the movie is not going to be as dark as many fans fear and that is good news.

So its NOT Khan? That bodes well!
One preview said that Cumberbatch's mystery villain approached the family at the hospital offering "healing abilities" to help with their daughter. Which character, if they are, from the series had those kind of powers or access to them?

EDIT: Admittedly, it did remind me of this, but that doesn't really rule out any other kind of healing powers that could be found in the Trek universe.
Wait. 'Healing Abilities'...............Well, didn't Deltans have healing abilities? Ilia used her healing abilities on Chekov in 'The Motion Picture' after he was zapped through the console by VGer. Maybe the Deltan males are not bald. Maybe Cumberbatch's character is a enhanced Deltan.

And Spock apparently says the "the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few" line. Not sure how I feel about that...kind of eye-roll inducing.

Re: Details of 9 Minute Preview Revealed *SPOILERS*

Is it true that we have to wait until "The Hobbit, Part 2" (next Christmas) to see the next nine minutes of "Into Darkness"?

According to the script and novelization of ST II, Jedda was a Deltan. The actor was allowed to keep his hair when ST II tried to distance itself from TMP, and it wasn't essential that he use his Deltan charms in the storyline.

Jedda? I don't remember him/her. Can you elaborate on the character?

Maybe he's going to teach her Antosian self-healing techniques?

I've read several reports of this and healing powers aren't mentioned. Cumberbatch's character says he can cure the daughter but that doesn't have to mean healing powers. It could mean that or he has medicine of some kind that can do it.

Genesis scientist who survives Khan's massacre, to escape with Carol and David to the Genesis Cave, but quickly killed by Terrell under Khan's influence.

Mentioned, no...but it sure sounds like they're hinted at. Who else in TOS lore has the knowledge to pass on healing abilities or has healing abilities of his own? And who is also a member of Starfleet?

Lt Ilia or any other Deltan I presume.

Then why is he shown using weapons in the teaser? Mitchell wouldn't need guns.

My money is still on Garth.
Fine! Garth cures her with his weapons then!!!

Re: Details of 9 Minute Preview Revealed *SPOILERS*

This sounds interesting. I like that the Cumberbaddie's identity isn't revealed. I'm starting to suspect TPTB want him unnamed all the way until May 17, and the end of the movie.

Although the film starts out with a light tone (for which I am grateful), I can't quite see it staying that way with a name like Into Darkness.
We also get enough humor (particularly from Simon Pegg) that manages to make light of exactly the kind of fan over-analysis that the film is sure to generate (i.e. Can the Enterprise even operate underwater?)
I look forward to the raving rebuttals of ultra-serious Treknical fans.
