    Huh? Not a very straight answer.

    :lol: I really love these guys. They really know how to answer a question without really answering it. They can out politician the politicians when it comes to dodging questions. :techman:

    You aren't kidding, these two guys (and J.J. included) couldn't give a straight answer if their lives depended on it!

    It's Johnny from the first movie ... a canon character!

    Well, Harrison could be a new character with connection to a canon character. Or a canon character rebooted.

    This is the drivel they give sometimes that I can do without. It's not like I mind that they're so secretive. It's their movie. They certainly know how to be successful. But when they talk, please actually say something. Or just stay shut up. Don't be coy. It doesn't suit them.

    I just can't believe the name is a pseudonym. How does a character in Stafleet (or at least the "organization") go around getting by with hiding his identity behind a pseudonym? Really? That alias can't be checked against medical or background records? It's that easy to hide a real identity in the 23rd century? Especially when you're a member of the "organization" and most likely had some vetting?

    Mr Norman in "I, Mudd" did quite well for himself.

    I dunno why people keep asking them stuff like this...it's pretty clear we won't find out 'til it's time to buy a ticket. Well, not counting the spoilers some of the trailers and TV spots will give. ;)

    If they really want to just mess around with our minds, then let's have some real fun. They've missed a once in a lifetime opportunity, actually. It's the perfect segue between the first nine minutes of "Into Darkness" and the start of "The Hobbit". The Trek preview ends, then -- .

    ...Of course, this may be a character who suffers the same fate as a canon fellah - hits the Galactic Barrier and turns to God, gets too much help from well-meaning Antosians, whatever. He's just not the same guy who suffered these mishaps in that other universe. But it doesn't matter, because after the mishap, the original character is gone anyway, and all that remains is a product that is the same in both universes.

    Same way you explained transwarp beaming. Few taps of the keyboard and than bam, decades of restrictions gone. I wonder if they'll even bring up transwarp beaming again.

    I'm sad we can't talk about Garth any more.
