That rules out everyone but Khan or the Borg, really.*

It's not the Borg.

Well crap... so much for my "Harrison is Annakin Sykwalker posing undercover as the third Klingon from the left" Theory...

If John Harrison is an augment, shouldn't he still be susceptible to the Vulcan nerve pinch (unlike as seen in those early photos)? I suppose they could have changed the rules, or this particular augment's trapezius was particularly engineered for that.

THANK YOU JOSS.

He's definitely not Khan.

In the trailer there's a shot of a room full of some kind of stasis canister type things, big enough for a sleeping human, and two men are on the far side of it, leaving, with their backs to us. The guy on the right is Cumberbatch in a white suit of some kind. The guy on the left is a big burly guy with a ponytail, in a yellow/orange jumpsuit. Guess who *that* most likely is...

Steven Seagal isn't even worthy enough to play an Okudagram or LCARS display in a Trek film. He doesn't enough range for either.

Saw this on Trekmovie:

JJ Abrams wrote:
His name is John Harrison and he is sort of an average – that is what makes him so scary – he is just an average guy who works in an organization called Starfleet, and he turns against the group because he has got this back-story and this kind of amazing secret agenda.
http://trekmovie.com/2012/12/22/jj-a...-flares-in-3d/
Seems average humans in the future are extremely capable.

Also: He really IS a member of Starfleet, not just posing as one or been randomly given a uniform "Space Seed" -style.

I love to be spoiled. I love to try to figure things out. But I give up. I'm utterly and completely confused (and even more intrigued at the same time). Harrison was said to be a canon charcter, though there's never been an exact charcter of that full name in TOS. He's an "average guy" serving in Starfleet, even though he was pitched to Cumberbatch as a combination of Hannibel Lector, Jack Nicholson in "The Shining", and the Joker.

The more I find out, the less I know. May 17 can't get here soon enough.

I'll tell you one thing, I'd never play poker with any of the Abrams group.

I'm still wondering how Harry Mudd wound up on the poll ballot. I mean, at least most of the others mentioned as a possibility for Cumberbatch's character were - oh, I don't know - villainous. They did nasty, horrid things much worse than smuggle a placebo beauty pill or have androids hijack Captain Kirk's ship.

Harry Mudd at his worst was about as threatening as Eddie Haskell on Leave it to Beaver.


Don't underestimate him, Zsinj was a good SW villain.


I've seen that character before. And yes....I thought about Harry, too.

It's hard to take an Imperial officer that seriously when you keep imagining him finishing each order or sentence with "Laddy Buck."
Looks like the love child of Mudd and Scotty to me.

I was also feeling deja vu over this scene. Alice Eve's character reminds me of the ESPer shrink on WNMHGB. Although after JJ Abrams' interview in Japan, I must admit I have no clue as to the villain this time around.

Re: Who is John Harrison (Possible SPOILERS or Insane Babbling)

Both timelines of that era share the same pants that are way too tight for their own good. Sperm counts during the mid-to-late 23rd century must have been at historic lows.

Thank heavens for the advanced fertility sciences of the United Federation of Planets.

Personally, I think John Harrison is the new version of the Dos Equis Man from the original timeline
