Star Trek XI subtitle?

I know, I know, the proper title for the film is simply 'Star Trek'. And that's as it should be. It's appropriate, as a reboot. It's good marketing to brand it simply that way.

But in fandom we don't necessarily have to roll like that. I get tired of refering it as variously 'Abrams Trek', or 'NuTrek', or 'Trek 2009', or whatever. Surely if we all put our heads together we can all come up with a good, proper subtitle for the 2009 movie?

Boring as it sounds, I like the one suggested on the movie poster. "The Future Begins". It's a nice simple subtitle that also manages to explain what the movie is about.

The Future Begins = TFB. ST:TFB or STTFB. Too clunky. And every time someone doesn't use it do we disrupt the thread to tell them, or point this thread out to them? Complicated.

I like Star Trek or ST. This differentiates it from The Original Series because we call that TOS.

Re: Star Trek XI subtitle?

It always causes some extra clarification in my house.

"Do you want to watch Star Trek?"

uhhh...

In writing I've always said ST:XI. So lately I've been referring it to as "eleven".

"Star Trek 11" is probably easiest.

Re: Star Trek XI subtitle?

"Nu Star Abrams Trek XI '09" would have a really memorable and snappy title to go with, but they dumbed it down!

Re: Star Trek XI subtitle?

The Future Begins is too generic and also kind of weirdass as we are watching a reboot of Trek's past.

Re: Star Trek XI subtitle?

I've recently been calling it Star Trek all around this site. No-one's had any trouble knowing what I'm talking about yet.

IRL, on the other hand, it's "Star Trek. The latest one."

I just call it ST09 around here. For some reason I don't like STXI.

As opposed to "Into Darkness"?

I like "The Future Begins" very much.

"The Future Begins" - nerdy, cliched and generic all rolled into one.
