Re: Teaser a Slight to Kirk?

J.J. Abrams is such a Kirk tease.

Re: Teaser a Slight to Kirk?

nah, we'll get plenty in the movie, I'm sure. They wanted a recognizable voice, and Nimoy is actually in the movie.

I can't wait. The teaser really makes it look like it's going to be big, and that it's about actually going into space, not the tiny TNG+ universe of klingon soap opera and the funny browridge of the week.

Re: Teaser a Slight to Kirk?

I agree. I think it has more to do with the fact Nimoy is in the movie and the Ego is not.

Don't fret. Nimoy's in the movie, and metaphorically his job is to hand the torch to the new gang. That's why Nimoy is likely to be featured in the marketing between now and Xmas. Him and the Enterprise are the "bridge elements" from old Trek to new.

The effect on the otherwise disinterested could actually be, "Was that Leonard Nimoy? Dr. Spock? He's still alive? Damn, he sounded old. Hey, didn't the guy on 'Boston Legal' used to say that?"

All the quotes in the teaser, including, "Space...." are iconic phrases from and about space from the 1960s. So, having Nimoy say it (and maybe thinking of him saying it as NIMOY, not as SPOCK) actually grounds the spirit of XI back in that time period. Which does make sense for what they wanted to do.

I was just trying to get a debate going about the merits of having had Pine deliver the line. What kind of statement would that have made? Would it have been bolder to do that?

And I mean honestly, among fans, who can't wait to hear him as Kirk?

Re: Teaser a Slight to Kirk?

Nimoy is the Anti Christ tm!!!!

oh wait...

:turning tin foil mode off:

So the person who made the fake trailer was correct. Nimoy did say, "Space the final frontier."

oh wait...

J.J. Abrams is the Anti Christ tm!!!!

Re: Teaser a Slight to Kirk?

What would have been amusing is if Shatner had delivered the line. Can you imagine the turmoil and confusion here?

That's actually exactly what I thought when I first saw the teaser.

If Ambassador Spock is recanting the tales of the early days of Kirks command to Riker and Troi I'm gonna be seriously horked off...

Re: Teaser a Slight to Kirk?

I don't even know what Pine's voice sounds like! Can't wait to hear it, though!

But for the trailer, Nimoy was definitely the best choice for the voiceover.

We'll hear and see Pine as Kirk soon enough.

The entire project to this point has been a slight to Kirk, Shatner + their fans.
