    Is the guy on the far left of that image supposed to be Simon Pegg/Scotty? That's who I figure it is, only through the process of elimination, but it doesn't look like him.

    Here's what I see, from RIGHT TO LEFT:

    Anton Yelchin/Chekov
    John Cho/Sulu
    Chris pine/Kirk
    Zack Quinto/Spock
    Zoe Saldana/Uhura
    Karl Urban/McCoy

    then...
    Pegg/Scotty?

    I don't recognize it as Pegg's face. Am I just not seeing that face right? Is it just me?

    It's Pegg as Scotty at far left. That's one of the same images used for promos of the last movie.

    How do we know this is official and not just a fan page claiming to be?

    The graphics in the banner look like they're just reusing one from the last movie.

    Thanks. I see it now in that second link. I knew it HAD to be Pegg (they wouldn't show 6 of the 7 on a poster. Maybe a poster would have only Pine and Quinto, or Pine, Quinto, & Urban -- but they wouldn't show only 6 of the 7).

    However, I just couldn't recognized Pegg's stylized face on that poster in the OP. I think it's the eyes and the mouth; he just looks..."odd".

    That's a good question. Anyone see this getting a mention on any of Paramount's official pages or reliable sources for Trek news? Doesn't look like TrekMovie has anything yet, nor TrekToday.

    Doesn't seem legit to me. It's linking to imdb as the movie website...

    Hm, I'm not seeing where that appears.

    Edit:

    Wait. Got it.

    Still, though, I'd be a little more assured about authenticity if there were something like that in their "About" section, along with a linkback to Paramount or to a Paramount page for the film. So far, this seems a bit amateur.

    They're doing the contest posted about here: http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=191119 (there's a link on the FB STID page too)

    Could it be that the FB page was launched a little early for this competition? Or is the competition a sham too?

    Should a Facebook page look more corporate? What do you think is wrong about it?

    Looks like the IMDb link on the "About" page has now been replaced with a link to:


    Which currently goes nowhere, generating an error message:


    Mhm.

    I agree, looks fake and surely if it was official it would have thousands of likes. Still only 361.

    According to the update posted 3 minutes ago : An exclusive trailer from Star Trek Into Darkness will be posted when we reach 500,000 likes! Share this to your friends! The fate of our page rests in your hands. Live long and prosper.

    There's a pic of the trailer which looks suspiciously like it came from the 3 frames revealed by JJ.

    I'm still calling BS on this one.

    PROVE ME WRONG PEOPLE, I WANT TO BE WRONG!

    Oh, but that's not the way to convince me you're legit, guys. That sounds a lot more like plain hit-count whoring by someone wholly unconnected to either the movie or Paramount.

    Why would the actual official Facebook page have the word "official" in its URL, anyway? That strikes me as having greater utility to someone pretending to be official than the real deal. :shrug:

    I mean, look. Here's the official URL for the Man Of Steel Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/manofsteel

    It's completely uncluttered with bullshit.

    The Anton Yelchin page which is promoting that competition is also promoting the "official" Trek into Darkness page. This casts some (more) doubt on that competition which sounds a bit too good to be true. You need to like the Anton Yelchin page to enter the competition.

    Yourself and FIVE friends flown to the premiere? Given 60,000 dollars? I'm starting to doubt this. Maybe it's just an email harvesting scheme.
