    I find it to be a little bit too teasing, to be honest.

    Here's the full description:

    http://www.hollywoodchicago.com/news/exclusive-star-trek-teaser-description

    So, as was indicated in the first rumors the teaser shows the main bulk of the ship being assembled on Earth.

    Which doesn't make a lot of difference where the film itself is concerned, since this is apparently not a sequence that will appear in the movie.

    Cool that they're using voice-overs from the American space program of the 1960s. :thumbsup:

    And this is interesting:

    "these huge aircraft-like warp engines..."

    Hm. I really like that, sounds like an excellent teaser.

    I'm betting good money that some people won't be pleased with the idea of the Enterprise being constructed on Earth, though.

    Yea, teaser!

    I'm a bit surprised it's just that, and kinda cheesy. I wanted to see actors!

    I'm disappointed that there's no quick glimpse of the "new" Kirk and Spock with some tiny bits of dialog, actually.

    It's been reported for a while now that the teaser was completed before filming even begun, so I don't know why people were expecting things like footage and first reveal of characters.

    Its a teaser trailer - we'll get all that, when the time comes for us to get all that - which I don't think it right now.

    This is different then most Trek teasers from what I can tell.

    Well, it's just an advertisement. The sequence isn't supposed to appear in the movie.

    Am I the only person who remembers that the 1970s fandom explanation was that certain components of the Enterprise were assembled on Earth at what is, today, a naval yard, and lifted into space? I even have a book, overlaying the 23rd-century Earthside construction yards on top of the existing contemporary naval base.

    Specifically, right in the area at the lower right-hand corner of this view. That was the eventual location of the EARTH-SIDE "San Francisco Naval Yards" facility.

    I'm not 100% sure where this ORIGINALLY came from. It may have even been established during the production of the original show... or it may be entirely "fanon."

    But in any case, I've never believed that every bit was assembled in orbit. Not since I was a wee laddie, back in the early 1970s.

    Sounds great.

    Constructed on Earth eh? There's something I wasn't expecting.

    Look forward to seeing it on youtube! (I'm in the UK)

    I like the "UNDER CONSTRUCTION" bit at the end. Overall, sounds cool. Can't wait to see it in a few days.

    Doubt that'd stop some people.

    Interesting explanation, Cary L. Brown, but, if I understand you correclty, parts of the ship are built but the final assembly into a ship is supposed to have taken place in space, correct? Because it seems here that the final assembly is underway.

    Regarding the ship being built on earth...didn't the original series dedication plaque say the Enterprise was built at the San Francisco Shipyards...which one would assume would be on Earth and not in orbit?
