I like teasers that show an inkling of the story. Some of the characters.
If the teaser consists only of close up shots of the ship being constructed, that's a little disappointing.
No. That's a lot disappointing.
I guess we'll have to wait until November for a proper glimpse at the look&feel of New Trek then?
It's an advanced TEASER, not a full trailer. It's nearly a year in advance of the final product, I'm not sure what you were thinking you'd see. I'd expect a proper trailer late this summer or fall.
My guess is the proper trailer will be out and attached to the new Indiana Jones movie. That's a perfect opportunity to reveal it. Lots of people are going to see it.

As for this teaser it may not be actually included in the movie so all this talk that it violates canon is rather premature. But some aspects of fandom always goes in guns blazing before seeing the final product. Trigger happy fans are getting annoying.

Uhm ... anyone get the feeling this movie is going to de-canonize 'Enterprise', the series?
No. I'm pretty sure once of the writers, probably Orci, said that there'd be references to all 5 series in the movie.
Maybe he counts the Animated series?

Well...obviously!


Or perhaps the film will belong in it's own canon, separate from any of the previous TV series or films? I never really liked the way "decanonise" is used in a way that implies to take something away. From a real world perspective, nothing can ever do that.
Hmm...upon re-reading, my response came out wrong.

"Well obviously" was a sarcastic jab whereas the was the actual response to the comment. I fully believe until I see/hear otherwise that this movie is part of the greater whole and won't "decanonize" anything.

Nah.

It's gonna decanonize Star Trek itself.

Or rather, it's gonna try.

Lucky for us, this misbegotten film is the odd man out, and will be rejected when all is said and done.

Re: 'Star Trek XI' Teaser: Nimoy and Enterprise

Personally I liked the trailer. Though I found it strange the Enterprise was being built on Earth, especially at such an advanced stage of construction.

I think the teaser is just meant to be symbolic. I don't think it will actually be included in the film and won't be canon.

Anyone worried about that can rest easy, judging by a response I just got from Roberto Orci over at Trekmovie.com. See my post 256 and his 286, midway down that page. Hopefully his " All signs point to 'yes' " cryptic response implies somekind of nod to ENT. Fingers crossed.

I doubt they care or know enough about the other series to even consider decanonizing something. They're just going to do whatever they think is "kewl."
Yeah i think you are right - this is abrams after all - its not going to be Star Trek - its going to be lame action crap with the trek lable on.

No, but thanks for playing. Really, if Cawley's awe about this this project, and one of the chief things he brings up about talking with Abrams is that he "Gets" the philosophy of Trek can't convince you... nothing reasonable will.

However Trek is exactly whatever Paramount chooses to label as "Star Trek". It belongs to them.

Everyone working on this film has shown a working knowledge of the franchise by those actually paying attention to what they're saying.
