    No, he has a few interchangeable officers. They were nciely menacing, but hard to tell apart since they all dress in the same black trenchcoats.

    Very PG-13. There's no obvious gore, but there are more than a few bruises and bloody noses. And a certain scene with Pike and Nero is not one I'd take a small child to see.

    Meat for the grinder. He has, I think, one named officer, the rest are there to fill the ranks. Hey, there were enough characters to keep track of as-is...

    :cool:

    Well, even with 2 days to go for us here in Ohio you guys took down the No Spoilers thread! Eek!

    Anyhoo, just posting (without reading any other post until Friday! :mad:) that I got my two tickets for Friday, May 8th 7 PM. I beat the rush as our theater had started pre-selling at 5:00 PM. I showed up at 5:01 PM. :D

    Seen it twice now. Noticed all kinds of nice little details on the second viewing (a nameplate for Admiral Lenard at the Kirk Kobayashi Maru trial scene... Kirk is eating an apple during the actual Kobayashi Maru, which reminds me of Kirk eating an apple in the Genesis cave in TWoK saying "I do not like to lose".. The quotes, like McCoy saying "Are you out of your Vulcan mind?!" .. that kind of stuff. I'd like to see a thread collecting all the references from the new film to the old Trek soon when more people have had a good look.)

    I do have to say some things still bothered me a lot. The Delta Vega scene with the two monsters was just an unnecessary chase scene worthy of later Star Wars films. Scotty's little helper has to go. Spock & Uhura... still not feeling it. And what was Delta Vega doing in the Vulcan sky? And is there now a massive black hole in the Earth's system? Wouldn't that cause all kinds of problems soon? And, sorry to say, still not sold on the whole Vulcan destroyed, Vulcans in exile idea. Although I can see how it can become an interesting storyline in the later movies.

    Karl Urban is excellent as McCoy. I really enjoyed his performance. Quinto's Spock is very different from Nimoy's but still somehow Spock. Scotty I did not care for much. And did I say already that his little sidekick has to go?

    I hope there is a slower-paced Extended Cut or something on the DVD.

    Nope. Quinto-Spock flew the squid ship and jumped to warp. Nero took the bait and jumped as well. When the two ships were facing each other they were into some kind of dark blue nebula, i.e. they were far away from Sector 001.

    Looking forward to seeing it. :techman: Tomorrow or Saturday, depending upon when I can manage to sneak out for a couple of hours.

    It's still floating around.

    Dunno. He did a really badass powerwalk to the shuttle. Did you see how he got to the turbolift and the doors just sorta slid away into the wall so they wouldn't bother him? He's that sort of badass.

    And then there's Scotty's trick which may have plugged the magic spacehole.

    Robau was portrayed as nervous and inexperienced. But who wouldn't be nervous with Narada off the port bow. Actually, Pike wasn't nervous when Narada went after him. Pike was the bad-ass. I hope he's in the next one.

    More like scared stiff and faced with a problem he had no idea how to handle. I wouldn't say he acted "inexperienced"; his orders were clear, concise and ended up saving the crew.

    I like the sidekick! He's cute!

    Hey I think there is! The Onion video mentions a special five-hour long cut where the characters debate whether or not to rescue the Andorian ambassador from the surface of Silex IV.

    I'll call it above average. The ridiculous nature of Kirk's promotion, the fit-inducing action scenes and snow monsters drag it down for me.

    Yeah whatever. I would like to see some of the scenes Quinto mentions in the Deleted Scenes article. Maybe I'm an old fogey but I would've preferred a bit more character buildup.
