    Has there ever been a credible source on that? IMDB is the only spot I see claiming that.

    Really, if that story is true, why didn't they just have April commanding the Kelvin anyway?

    The TOS Enterprise was supposedly launched in 2245, which is a full 12 years after Nero's arrival. So all bets are off.

    Uh-uh. That's boilerplate in contracts for actors in movies. Unless you're Marlon Brando, you sign.

    Even if an Enterprise were launched in 2245 of the Abrams timeline, it would have the registry NCC-1701, ot the ship seen in the movie.

    It's true they wanted to destroy the Enterprise as they have mentioned that in interviews but the rest of it I don't know.

    Why? It may have been a ship from an entirely different class. I figure the Constitution class stayed on the drawing board several more years as they attempted to create and integrate technology from the original Kelvin sensor scans of the Narada.

    I really don't think he's Robert April. Not only does he look different, they have two different body types.

    Aside from which, Abrams isn't revealing the real name of his mysterious villain in a comic book three months before the premiere. Duh.

    Not sure it's actually revealing anything though since only about ten to fifteen thousand people actually buy these things. :lol:

    I'm not buying the person being discussed in spoilers could be Cumberbatch's villain. In fact, even though I speculated weeks ago that it could be him, now I'm actually convinced it isn't because he's in the comic. Why in the world would such secretive people put the big reveal of the movie's villain in the comic book, and months before the movie is released to boot?

    Fortunately I have no idea who that character is.

    That'll be because you accessed the image via the article page and have it in your browser cache. For anyone who hasn't already done that, a direct link to the image will return a "You don't have permission to access" message.

    Ace Hunter? Anyone?... MegaForce??....Anyone??

    C'mon -- people from the 1980's can't forget Commander Ace Hunter (Barry Bostwick) from that fine 1982 film MegaForce,
    which, by the way, costarred Persis Khambatta


    Commander Ace Hunter:

    Well, anyway, it's either Ace Hunter or Ra's al Ghul.
