Re: Teaser online in better format

Looks great (I just watched the youtube version).

So...we see a nacelle, a piece of curved hull (possibly from the saucer), a up-shot of the saucer wih what might be a nacelle strut in the foreground, and a pan shot of the front of the saucer.

Way more than I expected. It's a great seller for the movie.

Fine. Will Spock be an emotionally red skinned Martian, and Kirk's middle inital be an R?

Re: Teaser online in better format

I just gotta say a few things here. I was not to happy with the teaser. I'm sorry but if in 100 or 200 or whatever years from now we are STILL wielding like we are today, humans will not exist, as we are far to stupid to have lasted that long.

This teaser never got me going, I was way to disappointed in seeing those people doing what they were doing. No robotic help. No laser type (or something else futuristic) wielding. Nothing futuristic other than a big ship in space..... something, realistically, we can do right now if the nations on this earth wanted to.

No, I'm sorry, I'm not about to buy into something that primitive that should be futuristic.

Blah. Hopefully I don't feel this way when the trailer is released.

Relax. It's a metaphor. Why do Trekkies always overreact like spoiled children?

...Also, the work on this baby won't be repetitive, like on run # 3,824 of a car model. Supposedly, only a handful of these ships were ever built, and they were cutting edge back in their day. It just might not be worth it to design and build an entire line of tooling for such a short production run,
on the old show there were many space vessels in the Starfleet but only 12 Starships. This was pointed out repeatedly to highlight what a unique individual the captain of such a ship was- only 12 chosen out of the trillions of Federation citizens.

Re: Teaser online in better format

I know I'm late but I finally saw the teaser last night. Beautiful, nicely atmospheric, and very cinematic. I would like to compare shots of the original Enterprise from the 60's show with this one, because it looks to me like they are being quite faithful to the original design.

and your basing this on what? a 2 - 4 second snippet of the construction of the enterprise. I think its too soon to be making these kind of judgments.

Re: Teaser online in better format

This is easily the best STAR TREK movie teaser in over a decade. At least since the very first teaser for GENERATIONS surfaced in the summer of '94 with the traced outline of the streamlined, mid-90s TREK delta shield logo as the narrator eerily described the Nexus.
