I loved Trek ever since I can remember, which now will be some 25 years (I'm 33). Watched pretty much everything so far (just some few eps of TOS left) and never had trouble embracing this new Star Trek. After seeing the opening Kelvin sequence of the '09 movie I was sold

I'm pretty much capable of enjoying old and new, without thinking the classic has been desacred; in fact it's still there, being cared of, remastered with love and care, like a classic car that's there to be admired on shows and exhibition for what it is - a classic. Noone's doing it any harm. The new one is a race car that's meant to be driven on the other hand, and from what I've seen in the '09 movie and already read about the new one it's a hell of a ride

OK, if this is the legit story - cool.

I just have one question:

Just curious. Why are you/we using spoiler code in a thread that's clearly marked that it has spoilers?

A museum in Los Angeles was supposed to fill in for a famous "Star Trek" location. Can anyone say what that location was?

Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Wow, that looks like an amazingly simple model - low poly, simple textures - for a "hero" ship in a movie like this. Where does the image come from - is it a section from a much larger image?

It got posted on my Facebook newswall through the official Star Trek profile there. This comment was attached:

The U.S.S. Vengeance. For the full first look download the Star Trek App now: www.StarTrekMovie.com/StarTrekApp/

PS: Whatever those spherical drones are - they heavilly remind me of Xindi. Section 31 would probably not hesitate to use tech outlawed by treaties and such...

I don't think it does. I think the point of Countdown to Darkness was the fourth issue reveal that Starfleet Intelligence is rotten.

Well said. I'm 30. And have loved Trek for about 15 years. As a fan of Trek, Doctor Who, and James Bond, I am well used to change! I just roll with the changes, and accept that my franchises will update with the times. I had no problem accepting the new iteration of Trek, just as I had no problem with the revived Who series, and the Craig 007 reboots.

If this is the official synopsis, it sounds awesome. Can't wait
