    There was a surprise screening in Austin with Leonard Nimoy before the official one.

    Yeah, I eventually worked that out, but it wasn't obvious here, in Sydney, when I was seeing reviews pop up online before the film had even finished running, and knowing all the guests' mobile phones and Blackberries had been cloaked by Opera House security.

    The reviews on AICN say that the creation of the nuTrek universe from the oldTrek universe is "clever". Did the viewers here find it clever? Were you glad it was a reboot?

    And I didn't want to drive to Austin. :rolleyes: I'm going to have to avoid this place for like a month. Congrats to all who saw it. And I'm glad to hear it's good. :)

    I think that many people didn't quite understand how the new universe began. In dialog explanations were offered on at least two separate occasions. The explanations were explicit and good, but if you weren't paying attention, you might have missed it.

    However, I like it better this way. Let's not belabor it too much, and I hate it when I feel as though characters are playing stupid so that something can be explained to the audience.

    I did have to explain at the end to the person with whom I attended the movie that this wasn't the Back to the Future model of time travel.

    I found the explanation clever and satisfactory. I'm glad they're doing this. There are now infinite possibilities in this new world.

    My friend Neerav was on the red carpet, and saw the movie with a media pass. His pics slideshow:

    Simon Pegg mentions the Austin screening in his latest blog post - and there's even a reaction from his Spaced alter-ego:

    Looking at this picture, Paramount could have used the architecture of the Opera House to their advantage, and placed the Trek logo on building.

    Well, Fat Harry over at AICN makes a point which is really rather obvious but he does it so succinctly in his Fat Harry style that it bears quoting:

    Yes. It all is starting to make sense. I breathed in the pollen.

    I was right to start the Rock penis thread...

    It seems that though its physical presence is absent from the film, it's spirit was preserved !

    Ok, I can't believe it took me this long but I have to ask those who saw the film...

    Was Captain Robau a badass ? ?

    I think the most important question is...

    Is the Enterprise viewscreen also a window!?
