Then why not call it something else? If you want to base a movie from a popular franchise than have the movie be based on that, not a loosely related story with some iconic names to make you feel that it's Star Trek.
Then what would a trailer have to look like to make it feel like Star Trek to you?

Anyone considered it could be Uhura's hand?

Fingers look a bit dainty for Kirk.
Someone on youtube was suggesting that as well and I don't see it. That looks like a Caucasian man's hand to me, which sort of rules out it being Uhura.

And if it's not Gary Mitchell, Alice Eve could be playing nurse Chapel.

I also think it would be a great alternate reality twist, if it were Kirk who dies while saving the ship, rather than Spock.

No way, that a man's hand.
My thoughts exactly.

And shouldn't Uhura's hand be a bit ... well ... darker?

Did anyone else notice there were NO space scenes?
Well, there may be in the bigger trailer or the 9 minutes preview.
And maybe not many of them are finished being cgi'd yet.

To be honest I don't mind if we spend a lot of time on Earth's cities. It will be nice to see what the 23rd century looks like down there.

It could be Cumberbatch's hand.

That would go against what the producers have said.
And what did the producers say, exactly?
Absolutely nothing about Cumberbatch playing something other than an entirely new character, that's for damn sure. They did, however, tell us that a first season character, and a fan favorite at that, would appear somewhere in the film. They weren't clear as to whether that character played a significant role in this story or not; merely that they'd "appear", which could easily be fulfilled with a mere cameo.

What's wrong with having a general audience see a Star Trek film?

When people complain about Trek being popular with people other than the fans, it reminds me of that Onion newsflash about the fans complaining that the new Star Trek film is actually successful.

Re: The Star Trek Into Darkness teaser trailer is here!

I don't give a shit whether it looks like Star Trek or not, because only two or three of the oldTrek movies are anything better than mediocre - almost by accident, it seems; neither Bennett nor Berman ever found any kind of groove with the things. A couple of them are truly shitty, and perversely seem to rank high with the fanboise (thus demonstrating that it's worth no one's money and effort to play to fannish tastes).

If Abrams delivers another bit of solid movie entertainment here, he'll have accomplished twice in a row what his predecessors flailed and failed at most of the time.

Well, this is certainly more impressive than the trailers for any previous Star Trek movies.

There's really nothing in this trailer that suggests Cumberbatch is anyone we've seen before.

Period. Check, please.

Now, he may be an established character - no reason why not. But aside from an obsessive fanboi tendency to draw unjustified inferences from the tiniest bits of trivia, there is nothing to give one a clue in this 1:03 minutes. All one can do is take a stab in the dark and guess.
This is my thinking as well... I think this new villain is someone that Starfleet screwed over somehow. But someone NEW !!

But ya know what I kinda think?
A "Homeland" style plot device with Cumberbund (?) playing a surgically altered Klingon spy/terrorist (like TOS) who, as a sleeper agent, befriended Kirk, lived and worked in the federation, then activated. Motivated either by some revenge for how his people are treated by Starfleet, or simple personal disgust with humanity and our gross freedoms and decadence (kinda Al Qaeda-ish,) since it's such a movie/tv trend these days....

OR .... AN ANDROID !!!

Just watched it. All the comments of youtube saying he's playing Khan. Hmm, seems far more likely to be Gary Mitchell to me, esp with the Dr. Dehner a like in it too

Been lurking for a while, but I felt the need to make this point so I dug up the account I haven't used in four years.

But to everyone saying this doesn't feel like Star Trek. What exactly is Star Trek meant to feel like. I mean, after 700 episodes and 11 films, I don't think Star Trek can have just one feel. It's been a deep philosophical tale (Measure or Man, Inner Light), A Die Hard style action film (Starship Mine, Empok Nor), War Story (the Dominion War), a time travel story focusing on the inevitability of fate (City on the Edge of Forever), a action time travel story (that voyage one- can't remember it's name-. First Contact, Generations), a comedy (Voyage Home), allegory for historical events (Undiscovered Country, Cardassian occupation of Bajor), horror story (anything with the borg, that one with the bugs in voyager -man, I am horrible at remember episode names for voyager) and a whole list of other stuff.

My point is that saying Star Trek has a particular feel is a major disservice to what Star Trek is and what it has the potential to be.

Blockbuster action adventure that gets a lot of arses in seats may be new for Star Trek, but that doesn't make it any less Star Trek. Star XI and STiD seem to contain all the hall marks of what has been in every Star Trek film and show so far- A tight nit crew, an awesome ship, alien worlds, The Federation and Starfleet, Klingons.

Saying STiD doesn't feel like Star Trek is really redundant because it implies Star Trek can only be one thing, or only one of a few things which obviously is not the case.

Also, Trailer looks bloody amazing, I'm spent the last four hours geeking out without stop.
