I can already tell that Karl Urban is gonna be one of the best actors in this whole film. From what I've seen, he absolutely NAILED the persona of Dr. McCoy. (Especially in that one shuttle scene.) I think De Kelley would be proud.

I'm already trying to work out when the Blu-Ray is likely to be released.
Agreed! He nails it on several occasions and so do many of the other actors and actresses. I was very impressed on how well the cast resembles the original crew in persona.

Urban is fantastic in the film, in my opinion he had the hardest job of all the actors in replacing de, and he does a fine job.

Re: World Premiere/Advance screening discussions [SPOILERS GUARANTEED]

As long as they leave it somewhat openended at the conclusion of the film (as to whether Pike can once again assume command), I'm okay with it. Strange as it may sound, I'm not a Pike fanboy, nor do I have anything against Kirk as a character. I guess I'm just too attached to the regular chain of command. The idea of a cadet - any cadet - going straight to a permanent captaincy, of a major ship of the line no less, does not exactly fire me up. If Pike retains command of the ship, but decides to keep Kirk on the crew and eventually - after several years - does give him the job permanently, I can believe that. I hope the film allows for that possibility. (It would be interesting, as I don't believe Kirk and Pike ever actually served together in TOS.) But in the meantime, let Kirk spend some time - no matter how short - as an Ensign, LT JG, Lieutenant, LCDR, and CDR before he makes Captain. Doesn't that make sense?

It does and it is open ended in the film so you don't have to worry, going to have lunch and watch property ladder now so have fun everyone.

I'm still curious whether Nero recognized this as an AU or not like apparently old Spock does.

Well nero asks captain robau the stardate, so he knows he's in the past, and they work out it will take approx 25 years for prime spock to show up, so i would say he knows he has changed history.

I would presume Number One would have her own ship by now. Its eight years after when the cage would have happened if Nero wouldn't have wiped out all of trek save Enterprise.

That's true, but the question is really about the fact that this is an alternate universe now. Unlike in 99% of the other Trek time travel excursions wherein the time travelers ended up in a... something akin to the same timeline, simply modified, and so could set things right and return to their original, repaired timeline, in this film, the time travel, for whatever reason, creates a wholly different, disconnected timeline which is, if I am not mistaken, referred to specifically as an alternate universe. There is no resetting things, fixing the timeline, etc. In other words, the Vulcan Nero destroys isn't the one from his own timeline, but a "different," alternate one. Does he know this, or not?

What is Nero up to during the 25+ years after his encounter with the Kelvin?

Residing in a klingon prison, thanks partly to george kirk's actions, planning the best way to punish spock. Alternate universe wise possibly not all he knew is that older spock would still feel the pain of watching it destroyed without being able to help.

The Enterprise would've been destroyed easily except Nemo halted the attack recognizing the ship name.
What the hell, so he could take a moment to Gloat?

Is it ever revealed, in the film, exactly what year it is? Or are we just guessing, based on Kirk's age?
