    Hey guys. Sometime last year I was excited after watching the teaser trailer for J.J. Abrams' Star Trek, and started to create a trailer for fun along the lines of "What if I was in charge of rebooting Star Trek?" So to that end, using my knowledge of filmmaking and CGI, I set off to create a teaser trailer based off that concept. This includes a differently designed Enterprise, drydock, and shuttlecraft. So without further ado, I present the fan teaser trailer for "Star Trek: The Beginning"...

    Also for those interested in how the visual effects were done, I posted a little write up on my blog...

    Wow, PixelMagic, amazing work. Bravo! Nice to see Dan Uyeno/MadKoiFish's Enterprise in all her glory. Simply a stunning piece.

    Ah......DAMN!

    As a person in school for VFX, all I have to say is stunning work sir.

    May I ask what programs were used for the modeling and compositing work?

    I love when the E goes to warp, the audio is as great as the FX.

    Thanks for the comments guys. I had a great time making this. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE what JJ is doing with Trek, but I thought this would be a fun project in its own right. I'm glad you enjoyed it too.

    I used Photoshop, 3ds max, and After Effects.

    Why can't I feel this??? it is the music!!! that is what is wrong ..,?

    needs less string tension motions and more like a dripping gripping droning buzzing blends of a firery bass lines or @least balance the dame thing already.

    other then that I will not complain again till after the movie. LOL (maybe)
