What for? He hasn't told us anything we didn't know yesterday.

Odo Ital, OTOH, has.

Someone who has seen the movie can certainly tell us: what is the opening theme like? At what point in the movie do we clearly hear elements of the TOS theme?
Hey, SP, I did a review over in the spoiler-free thread.

The opening theme is very Sturm und Drang. The TOS theme is integrated very tightly right before the end.

Pegg was a highlight as Scotty and basically got cheers every time he was on screen.

That this was going to be in a Alternate Universe was written all over the wall in neon red letters but only a few of us could read it.

Do we get to see engineering in the movie? Does it look like the dreaded pipes we've all been seeing?

Why is Scotty swimming in the water tubes?

How does Romulus get destroyed?

Does the Narada use Borg technology? How is it so powerful?
Romulus destruction explained in countdown.

Borg aren't mentioned (thank God)

Scotty swimming is a transporter mishap, but it makes sense in the movie.

The pipes are not engineering. Engineering is very big, and we never really see it in its totality.

Yes. Several. No Daedalus though!

Going to TrekMovie.com and typing parallel into the search box definitely pointed me towards those letters of neon.

So... no Finnegan..? (I keed..)

Important Question, for the propsters - tell us about the darn props!!! Phasers - is the silly twisty nozzle things as dumb as we think they are? Anything of note about the comms and trikes?

Dude, the sets are amazing. The props work great. Everything is detailed down to the minutiae. If I may be so bold, this is a visual cornucopia. Anyhow, I gotta go run and do my office hours. Hope some of this helped. I didn't want to ruin any big surprises.

Okay, here are some questions:

How does Nero end up in the Klingon prison?

How are the Klingons presented?

Any references to Kirk's time on Tarsus IV, or Gary Mitchell? (personally I doubt this)

Is the Enterprise a "brand new" starship when it is launched with Kirk on board, as we've heard?

Is Kirk a cadet when he comes aboard or not?

What references are there to Enterprise (besides the bit about Scotty and Admiral Archer's beagle)?

Just what is Nero's plan in the 23rd century?

What happens to Pike at the end of the movie?
Erm...is anyone gonna answer any of these questions? Of course, what the filmmakers have done with Vulcan already buggers things up drastically for me, but I'm still curious.
Klingons aren't in the movie, don't recall the Klingon prison reference.

No on the Kirk references.



The Enterprise is brand new, Pike tells Spock (Pike leaves the ship at one point and puts Spock in command) not to damage her as "she's brand new".

No extra Enterprise references that I can recall.



I explained what happened to Pike in another post.

The intro no, the outro yes, they do an homage to the original intro theme.
