They are not. Probably Romulan guards and Nero escapes from them.

Just saw the trailer. This movie looks like a giant steaming pile of garbage. I had high hopes for it. I really was looking forward to it. Then I saw it. In a desperate attempt to appeal to a wider audience J.J.Abrhams has destroyed what is Star Trek, instead he is going to turn it to just another one of these shitty hollywood movies about explosions and fucking. I'm going to miss you Star Trek, I really am. Instead of being about a hope for a brighter future you will be about a hope for a sexy explosion filled future. Everything Star Trek stood for in the past, is now being blown to bits just like all the stupid fucking explosions that are going to happen in this movie just to appeal to the 13 year old kids. I'm going to ask you, fans of the old star trek, is this really worth it?
Yes, it is. Star trek was dead, and this takes us back to a new beginning. Explosions? Sex? Lord forbid that ST have some excitement. I can't wait.

I doubt it. Look at the ridge line. Those are Klingons.

I think this is exactly the kind of hook the FRANCHISE needs to replace all the fans bolting because Ford Mustangs are still as cool in the future as they were when they were first offered.
Hey, numb nuts. Check out the high-definition trailer. It's obviously a Corvette.

Dipshit.

Re: New ST:XI trailer

Beautiful. Just beautiful. When I saw it before Quantum of Solace last Friday, it seemed to go so fast that I missed a lot of detail. But now, I can savor every second, and I'm loving this all the more.

What makes me sad, however, is that a faction of Star Trek fandom is bound and determined to see Abrams' endeavor crash and burn, and mercilessly berate anyone who wishes to give the new movie a chance. To my mind, it's reminiscent of the ire fans felt over the reimagined Battlestar Galactica. Hardcore fans of the original had declared the new take on BSG a failure a month before the miniseries and soon after the announcement of a full series run. After three and a half seasons, it's one of the most popular shows on television and loved by critics and fans worldwide, AND it re-ignited interest in the original series.

That's why I'm so adamant against people protesting and boycotting Abrams' new Star Trek before they make at least one attempt to see the full film. At least give it a CHANCE before spewing hot molten hate upon it. A trailer, some pictures, and descriptions of a handful of clips do not an informed decision make. I can fully understand and accept hating the movie once you've seen it all the way through, because that is, at least, an informed opinion. Blind hatred based on so little evidence smacks of small-mindedness, no matter how you try to defend it. Giving this new film its chance to change stubborn minds and win over new fans isn't such an unreasonable thing to ask for.

This movie may be the make-or-break point for Star Trek. If fans and non-fans alike don't show at least minimal support for this movie, Star Trek in any form may see its twilight. Don't expect Paramount to fund any new cinematic or televised Trek-related ventures in the near future. After all, why put money into a venture that is no longer economically feasible? Watch for Trek-related merchandise to all but disappear. The books and comics may continue, but that's about all fans can hope for. After all, there are only so many re-releases of series or DVDs that can be done before there's just nothing left to remaster or add on. It's not going to be just the creative efforts of Abrams and his crew that will bring about either Trek's rebirth or its irreversible death; it will be the acceptance (or lack thereof) of its fanbase.

One last thing, and yes, it's a shameless plug, but it's on-topic, so I don't see the harm of adding it here. I've created a discussion group for people interested in the new movie. It'll be a safe haven from the narrow-minded hate of the Trek purists, a forum for those excited and hopeful that this movie will revitalize the Star Trek franchise. Here is the link, for all that are interested:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/JJ_Abrams_Star_Trek/

I hope to see some of you there.

Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh, God I can't wait for this movie.
I'm guessing you can tell I just watched the trailer. I still can't completely describe how awesome it is, and how I'm now going to go watch it again and again.

Oh, and the Enterprise in action is gorgeous!

I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!

I totally missed that you were quoting yourself. I freely admit to seeing a flame and clicking "notify mod." I feel like a total newb

Do you think this is the ship dropping out of warp and right into battle (or battle aftermath)?...If so, I say cool "drop out of warp" effect

People have mentioned things like this (for other trailers) before now, but it just never seems to work for me. It just takes me to my library and a search of the itunes shop doesn't seem to show it

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

As for what I think of the trailer (having seen it on Apple), I generally like it

Ta

It might be a UK I-Tunes thing (For me, it has All Rentals, All Films, Disney, Coming soon, Soundtrack and learn about rentals. Looked under each one, but nope)

Thanks for trying though
