Re: 38 minutes of the film in Brasil - SPOILERS!

Abrams likes to keep suspense till the end without losing focus of the story.

I think Harrison will not die or will leave a trail that can be alive or that an important character (like Averengers) will comes as cliffhanger, although they say sequels are stand-alone stories.

Re: 38 minutes of the film in Brasil - SPOILERS!

About time we got something of substance! Now some speculation. The first question is: why blow up a library? The answer: to destroy obscure historical evidence of something that didn't make it into the digital archive (an escaped sleeper ship, maybe...). Why assassinate fleet command? Because they have top secret knowledge about a facility housing obscure left-overs from history.

The good news: Harrison probably isn't Khan. The bad news: I think those who believe this is a set-up for a third movie *with* Khan might be on to something.

Even better news: it may have nothing to do with Khan at all.

I'm still thinking that there is something to do with Robert April.

Re: 38 minutes of the film in Brasil - SPOILERS!

The Google translation came across a bit like Uhura trying to convince the Klingon outpost to let the Enterprise head toward Rura Penthe in STVI, but from what I gleaned from it (and assuming the author's impressions of the first 38 minutes are accurate - which they seem to be given what we already know) I can't say I'm too enthused about them basically rehashing a lot of the plot of the first movie, especially where it comes to Kirk's "hero's journey."



None of that is a dealbreaker for me by any means, and I'm still greatly looking forward to seeing the movie, it's just that I would have preferred to see Kirk


It just seems like taking a step backwards to me before returning to the status quo again.

Re: 38 minutes of the film in Brasil - SPOILERS!

Pretty clear now that they don't find out who Harrison is until the end of the movie, which for the first time, actually explains all the secrecy.

We're not supposed to know until the Enterprise crew knows.

Sounds like it to me, too. Further,


I guess in context or execution, it could all be done convincingly. Plus, maybe key points or subtleties were lost in the reporting or translation.

Hey, without spoilers, did the article say if the preview was any good? Or is it just a dry beat-by-beat?

I'm aware of all that, and I fully agree that he should make mistakes and experience setbacks throughout the film as part of his learning process as Captain. It's just the repetitiveness of the events relative to ST09 that bothers me a bit.

It's not a big deal by any means and won't spoil my enjoyment of the film, I just kind of wish they had gone in a different direction.
