    Well, it's Star Trek. They even come back from death in Star Trek. But he does make it clear he's not going to spend the rest of his life looking for a way back.

    At this point I'd expect him to spend the rest of his life looking for a Barcalounger and comfortable loafers.

    Spoilers!
    Just got back from seeing it. The movie theater was awful (it was the only one showing the movie today) but the movie was fantastic. I was genuinely surprised by the fate of some characters that I expected to perish and by those I didn't. The look of the movie is fantastic, although I can spot some green screen work on the Delta Vega (which is apparently in orbit around Vulcan....).
    I did wish we could see more of the Kobayashi Maru test and some more from Nero.

    Planing on seeing it tommorow in the most state of the art theater in town

    I'm thinking that was more symbolic... or you know... <quantum>. If it was that close you'd expect Scotty to be the least bit bothered. Also, it'd mean that the Enterprise was cruising at high warp but was still going slower-than-light somehow.

    Actually... was that maybe a hologram? Nero sure loves them...

    I cannot wait....9:55 pm tommorow night

    It seems like Those Who Bash Prematurely have only one wish in this world: to see stories they already know the ending to fleshed out on the big (or even little screen)

    Yeah that's a great idea...let's re-do "The Cage", shot for shot, line by line...that way, we dare not take any risks in violating sacred Canon...

    Why spend so much money and time writing a script and filming a movie that we already know the ending to? Where is the creativity in that? That is not art, that is facsimlie...Honestly, you nitpickers are the most uncreative, boring people I have run across in a long while...you love Star Trek and respect it's supposed continuity (I say supposed because to try to tie together the glaring inconsitancies of "The Cage" and the first season of TOS would take a greater amount of suspension of disbelief than Abram's version...is it the United Space Vehicle Enterprise? Was it launched by UESPA? Should Spock smile as he does in the Cage? Has the "time barrier" been broken? Will we be using lasers? Is it really in the 23rd century, or even earlier (as suggested by Kirk a number of times in the series)

    I think of this as a pocket-universe, like with Marvel Comics...right now, it's an offshoot, a sort of self-contained Ultimates version of Star Trek, a stand-alone story that, as the years go on, will eventually become the main continuity...Why cant it be enjoyed as such?

    Sorry for getting of track...again, can't wait!!

    actually, I'd have liked it better if there'd been a bit of the Immunity Syndrome stuff in here. Spock Prime feels Vulcan's death.

    Hence the "symbolic" suggestion. The scene itself is vague enough to allow for it. It is, after all, a flashback from Spock's POV.

    I was under the impression that Delta Vega was in the same system as Vulcan...

    It just can't be. The Enterprise left the Vulcan system at warp, there's the scene of the crew discussing what they'll do next, and someone needs to drag Kirk to an escape pod. At the speeds the new Trek ships travel at, the Enterprise would have been lightyears from Vulcan. Not to mention that Delta Vega's orbit would be ruined if it were really that close. Or that, again, Scotty might have wanted to ask what had happened.

    Nope, the Enterprise did not leave Vulcan at warp! Impulse only. ;)

    Really? I'm pretty sure I saw the warp graphic out the window when Spock told Kirk to get out of his chair.

    Actually, I've just come back from my second viewing and paid attention to it. Not at warp.

    I'll triple-check tomorrow :p

    Maybe we can chalk the awkward ranges up to a clever TWoK homage... no? Anybody?

    Thanks for the info, I appreciate it. I swear this is going to be the longest 24 hours until I see this movie. I cannot believe I am so amped up about it. I feel just like I did when TMP opened. I am so envious of those who have seen this movie already - stupid international date line - d'oh!!
