Remember when...

... Ain't It Cool News thought they had seen footage of the movie long before the release?

Re: Remember when...

I remember reading the very beginning of this, then stopping because I didn't want to ruin the movie.

I'd totally forgotten about it. Someone has a big imagination.

Re: Remember when...

I loved the confusion with the enemy ship's name: Sunfire? Sunflower? That's exactly the uncertainty you'd get in that situation and it's an exquisitely convincing detail.

"Mr. Atoz" get's a gold star for creative writing.

Re: Remember when...

The captain's saying how the bad guy's ship (the Sunfire? Sunflower?) can't protect him.
It looks a bit like the Planet Express ship except it's much longer and is, well, orange coloured.


The USS Sunflower piloted by Philip J. Fry!!! What is this, a bad acid trip?

Interior of the birdge and the thing is shaking all over from the frist torpedo hit.
Spelling sprawling all over the floor!!!!

I'm glad I never saw that story. I was pretty psyched for the movie but if I'd read that "preview," I would have been in tears.

Bizarrely, that's essentially what the pre-Borged Narada looked like in the Countdown comics.

Re: Remember when...

It could be that this guy read a very early draft and made up the story of having seen real footage. I read somewhere that originally, Orci & Kurtzman wrote an entirely different beginning in which the original Enterprise under the command of Pike was destroyed by Nero, but that Paramount vetoed that idea.

Re: Remember when...

Yea for WILD SPECULATION !

I love how stuff like this magically shows up online long before a film's release, then once the film is out it's way different then the WILD SPECULATION you read months earlier online....

Both Battle For L.A. & Skyline are going through this phase right now, even tho' both won't be out 'till early & mid 2011 !

Note, this stuff is happening because more films are taking the J.J Abrams approach to not tell folks a blasted thing online, just dropping teeny tiny hints here & there about the project, then giving us Teaser Trailers of footage that may have stuff in them that WON'T be in the film itself as it hasn't even been shot yet !

Super 8, anyone, anyone ?

Re: Remember when...

It was the Enterprise under Captain April that was to be destroyed in the opening. Presumably the idea's from the old novel Final Frontier, where George Kirk was first officer under April when the Enterprise was launched.

That would have been even better, because I liked Pike's role in the movie. And the sight of the ORIGINAL Enterprise (only slightly updated for the big screen) getting destroyed in the first 5-10 minutes of the movie, explaining A LOT more of the changes, would have won me over instead of putting me off like the first ten minutes of the real movie.

Re: Remember when...

You can see in early drawings and memos that the Kelvin was originally the "U.S.S. Iowa" - an in-joke nod to the notion of Kirk being "from Iowa." I wish they'd kept that.

Plus the early drawings looked a lot more like TOS designs. A shame they felt the need to change that.
I can imagine Abrams looking at the concept art saying "It's too clean and smooth, it needs more dirt and weathering and some harsher edges." thinking "Just like in **** **** tehehe."
