    Re: TODAY: There will be an exclusive iTunes teaser

    My guess for the plot is that some of Khan's followers or even rival genetically engineered supermen, including Harrison, were put into cryostasis (possibly beneath London) instead of escaping aboard the Botany Bay, and he emerges from stasis to gain followers with necessary skills he can exploit (like the parents of the dying girl he offers to cure) before he starts to wreak havoc on Earth to exact revenge and rebuild their empire.

    Come to think of it, that looks like it could be a large man and a woman exiting the facility, so Harrison might have needed the couple's skills in cryotech to awaken his followers and offered to save their daughter (with their genetic engineering knowledge or a transfusion or transplant from one of the supermen) in exchange for their help.

    Trying to resist the urge to make a crack about brewery engine room.

    Felt more like a morgue or mass of coffins but I still have only seen it on my phone - gotta wait to get home from work to enjoy it on the big screen.

    Isn't Peter Weller's character supposed to be somebody who's involved with genetics or am I just making this up? I thought I remember hearing that some time ago.

    I believe all we know about him is that he's a CEO-type of guy with his own starship. And maybe Carol Marcus' father.

    My money's still on him being Commander Starfleet.

    Can't speak to the rest of your speculation, but I'd bet a significant portion of my annual salary that the answer to this question is "no".

    On this point, I agree.

    Another group perhaps, but unlikely. The BB is out in space, that has not changed since it was launched before the Nero timeline change. It is more conceivable that another ship found them and brought them to Earth or something. Perhaps Peter Weller is a high ranking Starfleet officer, and one of his ships found them and brought hem back to Earth to study them. Maybe he made a deal with Kahn (Weller would unfreeze the rest of his 'family') to help him, and got Kahn into Starfleet under the guise of John Harrison for some reason. Kahn/John then turns on Weller and the destruction begins.

    Doesn't this board get run over by the "JJ has killed Gene Roddenberry all over again just by agreeing to direct Star Trek movies" trolls like on TrekMovie? I never seem to really see them here.

    Those types do exist here but they are in the minority.

    I loved trek 09 and this movie looks like it will top that one!!

    I liked this trailer more than I liked the first one. Still a little on the cautiously optimistic side, but at least we got to see the ship actually flying, amongst other things. Overall, good trailer.

    That's nice to know! I'm Trek apologist and I've loved it be it TWOK or the Zindi Arc in ENT. I kinda...sorta....can't get enough.

    Coffins don't customarily have windows in them.

    Interesting that the Federation emblem seems to have been re-designed a bit -- the presence of the "gears" on the outside of the circle. And that it's on a white flag now instead of a blue. < /random minutiae >

    I'm very sorry that I didn't see that detail on my 3" screen. I'll try to do better next time.

    My speculation is that maybe the cryo-chambers are at the end of the movie setting up the khan filled sequel?

    For some reason, him being Marcus' father seems totally plausible to me. Not sure why, but it just sounds right.

    No, they're likely not coffins, but they could be mortuary cold chambers.
