    :lol:

    Well, I mean those are actual price scanners in the real world. I had a thread asking about them when the 2009 trailer came out. I hate them so much.

    Yep, sounds plausible to me. Vonda McIntyre's novelization also tells a good story of what might have happened between Spock's funeral and the Enterprise's return to Earth, although you know how much of the fanbase usually is....even novelizations of canon films and TV stories aren't canonical.

    Frankly, the only thing that makes The Final Frontier and Sybok hijacking the Enterprise-A to the center of the galaxy even passably logical is what J.M. Dillard explained in his novelization about how Sybok and his followers modified the ship's warp engines using information from "visions" sent by the entity so they could make the journey.

    The novelizations can be a big help from time to time.

    I remember that. There's also a recollection that someone identified the exact model of scanner used - said something like "They have these same ones where I work!"

    Edit:

    Recollection was not 100% accurate, but not so far off, either.

    Finally tracked down a copy. HOLY HELL. This is going to be a phenomenal ride. Loved it - and it didn't feel like 9 minutes at all. It's going to be a rough 6 months.

    I loved it when the Giacchino score from the last movie started playing as Kirk and McCoy swam down into the water. I hope Abrams decided to leave that in the final cut and print of the film when it premieres in May.

    The Giacchino music can make almost anything inspiring and epic.

    Absolutely! Gave me the chills! And I love the early music too, this soundtrack is going to be truly wonderful.

    Almost every scene in this trailer gave me chills. The music helped, for sure.

    I swore off midnight movies after seeing the Dark Knight Rises this summer because I was so miserable the day after. I am completely breaking that promise to see this at midnight (maybe they'll do those 10 PM shows again like they did for 09...)

    I kept telling two friends that a bootleg video of the IMAX footage would probably be on YouTube the day of the Hobbit premiere but I don't think either one got to the video before it was yanked.

    Within a day of Skyfall's debut in theaters there must have been no fewer than, oh, half a dozen bootlegs of the awesome opening credits on YouTube. They might still be posted.

    If anyone wants any specific screenshots just ask, I've got like a hundred.

    I really got the chills seeing the word London.. it's very exciting to have an earth part of this movie set somewhere other than the US. Future London.. and what we saw of it was great. The hospital is obviously a very old building (or built to look like that) with character, but we see the hover stretchers. It doesn't have that sterile, overly planned look San Francisco has had at times.. more like what we would really expect.

    The car was nicely futuristic zipping through the countryside. Is this the first time we've seen a personal transport vehicle on earth?

    In the 23rd Century? Not sure. There were little car-like vehicles on the grounds of Starfleet Academy in the last movie but before the timeline changes I can't remember. Most personal vehicles in the 23rd and 24th centuries of the Prime timeline flew and hovered, and when we saw Captain Archer's apartment in San Francisco in 2151 there were hover/flying cars zipping by outside his window....I don't remember seeing any ground cars with wheels.

    I think we got a glimpse of a car or something in All Good Things when Picard visits Data but other than that I think this may be the first "car" we've seen. Well, aside from Kirk's stepdad's Corvette.

    My favorite part was:

    Dude to Cumby: "Who are you?"

    Camera Lady: "That's what we all wanna know..."

    Re: Very iffy copy of 9 minute trailer

    Is London in this timeline the first major European city we've seen in Trek besides Paris? Lisbon was mentioned in DS9 a couple of times and Minsk was where Worf was raised by the Rozhenkos so we heard it spoken of on occasion, but unless there's a scene in a past film or TV episode that's slipped my mind this might be the first major European metro area ever depicted in Trek outside of Paris.

    Not that I can think of.

    I'd really like to see 23/24C Shanghai or Hong Kong.

    I'd like to see everything.

    I'm wondering if you get anything like Coruscant with a dark underbelly or if it's all very civilized.
