It's a teaser trailer, it has 60 seconds to show something, anything from something 2 hours long that makes people want to watch it. And it's succeded.
And you didn't read my last paragraph.
All the buzzword ridden nostalgia nonsense bogged the reading process down enough for me to stop before that, sorry.

Once again while we are guessing why not Charlie X?
And the blond is Janice Rand the girl who rejected him. After all he feels the whole crew let him down at the end of Charlie X. We know that he looked to Kirk as a father figure.
why not Charlie?

That ship going down in water reminds me of the Enterprise NX-01. Maybe it's Admiral Archer getting revenge because Scotty beamed his dog away somewhere....

Reading this takes longer than watching the teaser.
Life is to precious, the teaser is to good (those marketing people really know what they are doing) to waste time on your "Star Trek is supposed to be..." drivel.
I bet writing that took even longer, and yet you somehow managed to find the time to complain.

Why not Christine Chapel and Roger Corby?

We just don't know.

@ RAMA ^Yeah, I know that the comics are part of the continuity. But that's not the same as setting up a major part of the movie's plot and arc in the comic. It's purely for completists. Expecting an audience to be familiar with these events is just not part of their plan, IMHO.

they wouldn't, which is why they would allude to previous events on the pre-credits teaser or with flashbacks.

Something people should keep in mind about trailers. Studios have entire departments that are devoted to just making trailers. They are designed by the studio marketing departments, not by the people who made the actual movie. That's why trailers for most big budget summer movies have that same general feel. It's the same people churning them out, using the same philosophies. The actual movie may be nothing like the trailer.

So I read through the next 7 pages of this thread this morning and I'm being asked what I wanted to see for a Trek film and why this doesn't feel like Star Trek to me. Well, part of it is this film feels like 100 trailers we've seen so many times in the last few years with the booming music, explosions, and that Battle: LA tone. I mean seriously, how many times have we seen trailers like this, where you get the whole "Boom" (Dialoge) "Boom" (More dialog and even extra special effects), and then add more "Booms" for good measure.
This looks FAAAAR better than any of those generic scifi action flicks like Battle:LA and Battleship. It's got actual style and emotion behind it, and what looks like a very compelling villain.

And these are characters who appear to be truly fighting for their lives, and who aren't just running through a videogame, tossing out one-liners while things explode around them.

Sigh* I have been a fan of Star Trek since 1973 and I am a bit tired of the "this is not Star trek" crowd.

For me Trek09 brought back the thrill and amazement I had when I became a fan that many years ago.

This feels like Star Trek to me.
Testify! By the time of TWOK, the TOS characters had aged enough that growing old was a thematic undercurrent in the movies. By TUC, they were actually questioning their relevance. It may have been part of the charm of the movies, but to paraphrase Kirk from TVH, we didn't actually catch them at their best.

Now, there's an energy and spirit in these characters they haven't had in decades. The promise of thrills and adventure was how "Star Trek" was sold in the first place.

I do expect that Cumberbatch's motives and background will be shown early on in the movie. I would simply be surprised if such a secretive crew as Bad Robot, who have guarded this movie and its plots and characters most jealously, would give away information like this in a comic. It would be like having a comic released pre-TDKR showing Bane hijacking that flight.

But obviously I don't know any more than anyone else.

Since the movie does depict that the character is returning for revenge does make Charlie X still a possibility.

It's not a blatant ripoff of Khan or a clone of Khan or a pal of Khan. It's not a Khan wannabe, a Khan minion, or a copy and paste cookie-cutter villain that is virtually identical to Khan in every conceivable way.


It is Khan.

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

I know one thing, I'm staying away from these boards until after this movie comes out. This is Star Trek made for the big screen, something that has been lacking in the last few movies.

Cumberbatch can't be Mitchell because, he didn't have a British accent? Please. Are you forgetting that this is an alternate universe? I think it's been explained enough. Three years later and some people still don't get it.

It's this lack of imagination from the fans that is sad. Good god, you all suck all the fun out of it. Star Trek needed a breath of fresh air and that's exactly what JJ and crew have done. Lighten up and open your minds.
