Re: The 2 Minute Trailer?

They're not coffins. They're cryogenic units.

A trivial thing, but kind of cool for an old-timer like me is that in this image:

Link

The insignia pin Kirk wears is identical to the one he wore as part of his admiral's uniform in Star Trek The Motion Picture, the design of which was later repurposed as the central part of the jacket insignias worn in TWOK and later movies.

The old chevron-with-star is very different from the versions we've seen up until now in nuTrek.

Re: The 2 Minute Trailer?

Anybody notice what looks like some kind of a Klingon BOP chasing a shuttle-pod/disc through a bunch of buildings?

LMAO.........they sure do. Good catch. For those that don't know, Zappa was a French/Italian (hence the big crooked nose). Also they could be Jewish too since many have those type noses. Hmmmm...a Jewish augment?

That's what I was thinking...
Maybe the ones with the screwed-up DNA (Flat-heads)

Put in stasis to avoid having them spread their "Bad" DNA around the Empire???

Re: The 2 Minute Trailer?

Has anybody suggested yet that perhaps it's the Klingons that find the Botany Bay in this universe?

That's why JH is shown fighting them...

(just pulling stuff outta my as here)

*Bones is unable to save Khan, unlike in “Space Seed”
*Harrison awakens, is taken aboard the Enterprise and given a Starfleet uniform, a la Khan in “Space Seed”
*Kirk does not awaken the rest of the Botany Bay crew due to orders from Pike to bring the BB crew and Harrison to Earth
*Harrison is furious at this, gets violent, is put in the brig
*The BB crew and Harrison are brought to Earth
*A year passes. Harrison has planned his revenge on Starfleet and the Federation, securing assistance from various people and manipulating others to aid in his goal of usurping the Federation, freeing his crew, and then taking control
*Harrison’s biggest supporters are from within Starfleet and the Federation itself, including Peter Weller’s character.
This all seems plausible.

Still, those "cryogenic" units may be simply to keep the crew killed on Kirk's apparent ill-fated mission "fresh" as it were.

I went to see The Hobbit opening night, and much to my dismay, there was no Into Darkness preview!

I don't understand why people simply don't call the theater and find out ahead of time.

This kinda-sorta ignores the whole "J.H. Fighting the Klingons" thingy though.

Why? Maybe he goes to the Klingons for assistance/cooperation and they reject him.

Seems implausible to me...

Why would they let J.H. have the opportunity to contact the Klingons after-the-fact of bringing him back to Earth in the brig.

I don't see Star Fleet just giving him a ship to toodle around space with, based on what little we know at this point.

Seems a bit more plausible (to me anyway) that he meets up with the Klingons Before interacting with Kirk and the gang.

The BOP(?) chase scene could suggest this also.

Isn't he in the first 9 minutes of the movie though? If so, for him to both be on the Botany Bay and revived by Klingons, it would have to be a flashback (which is no stranger to Bad Robot).

However, I don't think it is the Botany Bay that we're seeing. The hallway that the two figures are walking into has a brick background, like I mentioned before. That doesn't seem much like a starship to me. That theory could work that they were transported, but that would be assuming the Botany Bay pods were at all portable.
