Bah, I missed that :-/


BTW, I like the floating holograms GATT was manipulating. What is it with 3D holograms on the Enterprise bridge in commercials but not the films?

My friend consulted on that commercial here in NYC.

If you look closely, there is no captains chair Paramount didn't want to ship the real one, and wouldn't authorize or pay for a copy to be made.

Anything that helps the NuCast gain more exposure for themselves and the franchise and puts a little extra money in their own pockets is a good thing.

Maybe the holographic displays were stuck in full lens flare mode?

They did seem a little bit paranoid about the chair in the Bluray extras for ID, claiming every prior captain's chair in Trek had been stolen.

That was a cool commercial. Great exposure for nuTrek as well.

The holographic displays won't be installed until Tuesday.

Nah! That was Star Trek's old show runner's excuse.

F-ing awesome commercial.

I just saw this one on tv tonight. Interesting commercial. Maybe a sign they're prepping NuSulu for a bigger role? Probably not.

In the next movie, Sulu will appear briefly dressed only in a pair of panties and a bra.

It will be featured in all the trailers.
