    I just saw yours, Methos.

    It's a damn sight better than this one, fake or not. :)

    20 mins work, if that, while listening to ACDC lol

    if i can do that in 20 mins... then imagine what the real studio can come up with after weeks / months of drafts and concepts...

    I thought it was a fake, right off the bat, but I could be wrong. If this is what the poster really looks like, then I think something went awry. Also, it reminds me too much of images like this:

    FWIW

    I could accept someone taking a photo of a sketch drawing, nothing else.

    Thanks cooleddie74, I am Trek Brasilis editor and I need to check the sources, ok?

    Awesome, there's a photoshop thread! Nice, and you've done some nice work there. I don't venture into the General Discussion section, but that's going to change now. :)

    Well, JJ listened to all your complaints and decided to tone down the lens-flares, and now the whole movie is going to be blurry and out of focus. Way to go, guys.

    Your avatar is missing lens flare, Spock/Uhura...

    You need something like my previous avatar:

    Simon Pegg has become the first cast member to comment on the new movie title by tweeting (@simonpegg) that "Star Trek" is a verb, not a noun. He boldly confirms that the title is "Star Trek Into Darkness".

    Thanks for that, ralph.

    Guess that settles the colon controversy once and for all. Show's over, laddies...nothin' more to see here.

    Except it's still a noun, unless that's interpreted as an imperative: "Star, trek into darkness!" It's just a noun that has a prepositional phrase added to it.

    Thanks! I had help from our very own J. Allen. Without his skills there'd be no "nuCarl Spock."

    Lonnnnng story.

    You weren't around when the legend of Carl Spock was the rage. Dang. I don't know where to begin, really. It's complicated...and very weird. :lol:

    <------ This is Carl, by the way. The original.

    I star trek into darkness.
    He/she/it star treks into darkness.
    We star trek into darkness.
    They star trek into darkness.

    Now it's a verb. :p

    @ cooleddie I'm just a lowly Lieutenant Commander, Sir Admiral. So I'll accept that the information is classified. :D

    In those sentences, yes. But "Star trek into darkness" has no subject, so it's not a sentence with a verb -- again, unless it's an imperative and the implied subject is the listener. And "Star" could not be the subject with that form of the word "trek" and with no comma. If it were "Star treks into darkness" or "Star trekking into darkness" or "Star trekked into darkness," then it would be a verb with "Star" as the subject, but not in the form "Star trek into darkness."

    By analogy, think of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea or Journey to the Center of the Earth. "Voyage" and "Journey" aren't verbs in those titles, but nouns. They aren't imperatives telling the audience to voyage or journey to those places; they're simply a description of the events being depicted in the stories. This is a movie about a voyage to the bottom of the sea, this is a book about a journey to the center of the earth. And equivalently, the show Gene Roddenberry created is a television series about a star trek -- i.e. a long, arduous journey in space -- while this movie is depicting a star trek into darkness -- i.e. a long, arduous space journey that goes somewhere dark. (Like, maybe, space?)
