It's definitely a bigger viewscreen than that dinky little thing they had on TOS.

As for the 'antique cars' - Trek has often wrongly left the impression that because a new tech comes along old technology must therefore become extinct. Not how it tends to work, the old and new tend to coexist and if some of it has a fashionable quality such as cars so much the better.

Sharr
indeed. I am reminded of these steam engine clubs that show off their collections at agricultural fairs around here.

Re: New ST:XI trailer

The new 1701 helm console looks like a hybrid of the styles of the earlier movie 1701 and 1701-A consoles and the Enterprise NX-01 console from the Archer era.

God, watching the trailer in higher quality makes this look even worse.

I'll still go and see it, and I'm not saying it will be shit, merely it looks shit (to me anyway)

Which is exactly as it ought to be. ENT was trying to do the whole, "TOS if it was today" thing and failed utterly, this looks like it's got it spot on.

Re: New ST:XI trailer

Now people are whining about young/teen Kirk's antique car in the movie. "Well if he could drive a sportscar like a bat out of hell as a kid why couldn't he operate an automobile very well on Sigma Iotia II in the TOS mob episode?"

Sheeeesh. Cue the reboot assholes.

Re: New ST:XI trailer

After repeatedly watching the trailer, I have gone from exuberant to angry! Not because of the trailer, I love it, but because I have. to wait. until freakin. MAY to see it!

Re: New ST:XI trailer

My fears about the movie are marginally lessened by the awesomeness of the new trailer.

My 80" projector screen is bigger than the one on TOS.

It is a very well made trailer. While I may not like all the designs in the movie I think it will be a great movie to watch. Well crafted cinematography and striking visuals. As someone had mentioned before- this time all the money did not go into famous actors pockets- most of it is on the screen.

I like the trailer a lot better after seeing it in HD.

I showed it to my wife last night. She hadn't seen any of the publicity stills or the new Ent or anything yet.

She said "It looks like it'll be good. You'll have to remember to keep it distant from what's come before though."

Wow, I really can't believe that people are defending this garbage.. This trailer makes Enterprise look like a classic.

Yes, you are right.
The fast-paced editing, the sound-track, the music and the excellent VFX do indeed make Enterprise look like something classic...

Really? It's running about 82-18% in favor of the new movie around here.
