Anyone catch the subtle nod to TOS production values in the trailer? The scene where Spock is running after Harrison, at 1:51 into the trailer (just after Harrison bursts through the glass), shows Spock's insignia on the wrong side of his shirt--as used to happen to McCoy in TOS on more than one occasion. That's the kind of attention to detail that shows, beyond all doubt, that Abrams' reverence for the source material is unimpeachable.

I loved the trailer, don't get me wrong. I was simply amused that a little reversal like that snuck into it the way it would on TOS.
Yep, wasn't lost on me. The set of TMP trading cards that came with General Mills cereals as part of the movie promotion back in 1979 were all backwards, too. EVERY one of them, as I remember.

Harrison bursting through the glass is also reversed from what was seen in previous clips and stills.

We saw image-flips like that in trailers for the last one, too. The one with Spock's insignia on the wrong side of his shirt as he's choking Kirk on the bridge is one that quite a few people picked up on. Robau's briefly-missing badge in the movie might have been because of an image-reversal, as well.

Re: new star trek trailer

Someone's pointed out that the flip-flops are probably deliberate choices made to maintain a certain flow and direction to the action in the quick-cutting trailer; they don't consider the badges to be a big enough deal in this context to expend resources trying to hide or fix them.

Re: new star trek trailer

Such reversals are common in trailers for action movies in general, for reasons of flow like you say. I just thought it was an amusing coincidence. Perhaps I should have posted my observation in the TOS forum to prove Abrams respects the source material?


Nah. Not worth the rage it would surely generate. Or maybe...

I hope they put in an ironic callback by having McCoy say "My God, that's a big ship," as the Dreadnought comes into view.

I noticed several of them. Another more subtle one was in the pod scene, although I'm starting to think that one was actually the right way, and the first trailer we saw it in was flipped.
