    If you recall, Orci once half-joked that they wanted to show the sleeper ship - and it being blown to smithereens by the Klingons.

    lol - I would be fine with a cute little nod like that - it's brief, it's funny, and they're not going to try to compete with an already perfectly told story.

    Keenser, really? Was there an outcry for this character from some person? Oh thats right we have to work in the lame comedy for Scotty in engineering. So glad they decided hes only good for comic relief. Bah!!

    The Klingon official spelling for Kronos.

    that would be Qo'noS :klingon:
    [edit] ack! beat me to the punch
    anyway, I'm glad that it's a 'normal' name, not something over-the-top like Ming the Merciless. It might make for a more interesting journey to have a character that's more of an antagonist rather than a straight up villain.

    I agree. His name might as well be John Doe for all intents and purposes. But then this has been a particularly devilish campaign of misdirection.

    Well, yeah. I've been saying for years that Abrams and his Cohorts are jackasses. Nothing new here.

    Thing is, Nolan didn't string everyone along for nearly a year by not indentifying who Neeson was playing with vague hints about he's someone from the comics and then officially announce "he's Henri Ducard," causing everyone to ask "who now?"

    Kirk could yell "JOHN!!!!"

    Who cares? The movie is the only thing that counts. Everything before the movie is just an elaborate form of waiting.

    Re: New Info! (Bad Robot press event) *SPOILERS*

    Exactly. Why "play" a potential audience like this? I honestly don't like this part of what they do. Anthony Pascale over at trekmovie.com posted that he confirmed the villain is named, John Harrison. Still, many of us seem skeptical. And if it turns out the name is just a pseudonym, then Pascale was a catspaw and his credibility suffers. I'd think Orci et al would eventually lose trust, that way.

    Be secretive. Fine. But don't be coy about it.

    He must have been referring to Alice Eve-Carol Marcus, whom he said was not cannon.
    Not even close. It's: “Joooooooooooooooooooooooooooooohn!”

    It's not like there has been a ton on news about the movie until the last few weeks. There are still actors in the movie that haven't been identified.

    If they misspell Qo'noS, it only stands to reason that they would misspell John HarriMAN...

    Not true, it was not confirmed that he is named John Harrison, it was confirmed that he is called John Harrison. This could mean he is indeed named John Harrison, or it could mean he's an imposter pretending tobe john Harrison and is actually someone else (For example a shape shifter like Garth of Izar). I'm just saying that they have still left the door open, it very well could be he is John Harrison, and that's all there is to it, but, it's not an open and shut case, and they used the word called deliberately to keep that door open.
