Bring Back Kirk Trailer 1.5

Hello guys.

I'm a rather large fan of the Bring Back Kirk campaign, especially their second trailer which has been doing the rounds for many years now. I'm currently looking into doing some kind of visual reconstruction of the story.

During the course of that, I spoke with a couple of the makers of the trailer and was given permission to share this. It is the original edit of the second trailer. While it is no match for the eventual nine minute trailer, it does contain a couple of different FX shots and is an interesting look at the way the later trailer came about.

Enjoy!

Re: Bring Back Kirk Trailer 1.5

I too am a big fan of BBK Trailer 2 but this is a good cut - I see a few bits left out of the more well-known trailer; the orbiting the sun way back I prefer than Spock's opening a doorway and beaming Kirk and Archer out; it's just smoother.

I've known Kastrol for some years and we have done primarily tests on the visual piece he mentions (full credit to Gazomg who has done some art for us), it's going to be an amazing project that I'm proud to be a part of. We will be using storytelling techniques not seen in a Star Trek project before. It'll be interesting to see if this feels like a TOS movie or TNG movie with TOS characters.

If the stars align Shatner may be joining Nimoy in the JJ Universe come 2016 but the original timeline is not dead; many have wanted the gang back in the 24th Century with Picard and co as a sort of 'Justice League of Trek'. The trailer has provided the perfect storyline.

I remember the trailer from when it was first released. It's as schlocky now as it was then. Perhaps more so.

On the basis of the trailer alone, you have to give the guys who made it an "A" for effort, but it's just so much fanwank it's incredibly difficult to take seriously.

It is totally very fanwanky but I am a junkie for the stuff! I think that was the whole intention - all five Captains, cameos from other familiar faces plus it gave closure to the Temporal [Cold] War storyline. In a way with the revival of Kirk it felt like a [happy] closing piece to the whole franchise at that time (around 2005 believe it or not! It was revolutionary at the time but now look at what incredible talent is sprawling up all over YouTube).

Even though it's dubbed a 'trailer' it is a 9minute narrative piece with a beginning, middle and end. It was weird but great to see Kirk, Spock and Scotty in the newer uniforms with Holo-McCoy in Voyager-design sickbay. The trailer felt like something new but truly classic Trek.

I always say that it is the third chapter for Kirk and friends following the Five Year Mission [Chapter 1] and the Movie Era [Chapter 2] but still true to the 24th Century canon we know.

Re: Bring Back Kirk Trailer 1.5

Bring Kirk into the 24th century was always a fanwanky idea. I love in jokes (well a lot of them) and like seeing continuity, but this just never appealed to me for all the reasons doubleohfive mentions.

YMMV of course.

Kirk did exist in the 24th century just not for very long.
