    I liked the trailer myself, my initial feelings about the movie are positive, even though you cant tell too much about the plot yet.
    It is nice that we get to see more new species and locations/planets this time around. Also nice to see that the enemy ships( or drones) are small but very deadly. I think a "huge dark enemy ship" would have been tiresome at this point.

    Seems that Enterprise is getting its ass kicked again.
    I just hope we are seeing her shooting back at least some before it (apparently) goes down.

    I have feeling this will be a good movie, but wont judge it until I actually see it. But I am getting good vibes though. It seems also we are getting something more original this time around, not just copying Wrath of Khan( that was one the more negative things in the previous movie).

    I hope we do not have to wait too long the second trailer , cause I do want to know more about the plot and all that..

    ^^^You can see the Enterprise's phaser firing while she's under attack.

    Well, the first one is a teaser, so it's more of a "hey, look, a new Star Trek movie is coming out soon!"
    It's an attention grabber, and not much beyond that. Later trailers should better flesh out the basic plot and layout of the movie.

    For now, though, enjoy it for its high kinetic energy, and (hopeful) ability to draw in people who may otherwise pass it over! :D

    LOL Since when? Didn't he casually abandoned his bike to a stranger in the first one? And wasn't the point of that to symbolises Kirk's 'putting aside such childish things' moment? Therefore, it could be argued that Kirk having another bike is a bit of a character regression.

    Or, shit's going down and there's a bike. Hey! Kirk knows how to ride a bike!
    Oh wait, we can't use that to rescue anyone. He's put away his childish things. We'll have a meeting instead.

    Seriously, there isn't enough there to give any real detail. It's a teaser trailer.

    Exactly, so you cannot assert that Kirk is now a 'collector of vintage vehicles'.

    I disagree-I thought that the English-language version (I call it that because it wasn't really an American flick due to it being made by Hammer, a British company) was well made, and even ended like a Hammer horror film (in particular the one about the children with the nuclear glow about them.) Besides, it would have gotten remade one day.

    Why is it so important that a Star Trek film be so intellectual when the show really wasn't, for you?

    You know, I think I've been waiting for a Trek trailer with something like modern music since around 1983.

    I like the trailer score.

    Re: Star Trek - Beyond Bad

    I never asserted it in the first place. My point of contention was with the idea that since Kirk gave his bike to a stranger (he was enrolling in Starfleet after all), he somehow can't use a bike again later because it meant he had put away childish things. That was your assertion.

    My belief is he gave the bike to a stranger because he didn't need it (enrolling in Starfleet) and it looked like a bit of a beater anyway, or at least quite dirty. So I doubt the bike was a vintage one.

    So you can't say he didn't collect vintage vehicles either, since Kirk does seem to collect antiques of all kinds, and we don't know the full gamut of his tastes.

    Again, movie teaser trailer.

    Wasn't Magic Carpet Ride in a First Contact trailer?

    *pushes glasses up* "Well, no, because that song was 30 years old at that point so does not qualify whereas Sabotage is only 20 years old and is the epitome of modernity scoff scoff narf narf"

    In a nitpick completely unrelated to ST:B, I'd like to point out that the prop also serves as the ENT plasma rifle, with minimal modifications. So we could say Kirk has a 2150s style Starfleet rifle there, and the Gamma version is either a cosmic coincidence or a case of industrial espionage the other way around...

    We now return to discussing motorcycles.

    To each their own, but screams TFF and Insurrection with a far more gigantic budget to me. I will wait for trailer #2 before writing this movie off completely, but man was this trailer a gawdawful, confused mess. Unless trailer #2 pulls me in, this will automatically become a netflix special, and I won't be seeing it in the movies.

    The good: looks like the Enterprise may be destroyed, so maybe the next movie (if there is one) we may be getting an Enterprise-A. I have to say this version has grown on me, but I am anxious to see what Enterprise-A will look like, if there is one.

    Good Spock and McCoy moment.

    The FX look beautiful. But so did STID, and I didn't like that movie.


    The Bad: Pretty much everything else. How disappointing. For all the criticism Nemesis got for dune buggies, Beastie Boys and dirt bikes don't help things in the latest incarnation of Star Trek. Oh, and if you are going to use Beastie Boys, how about use another song, instead of the one from 2 movies back? Sabataage {insert Shatner pronunciation} Y'all!

    Based on the trailer, this movie seems more generic action blockbuster that Paramount slapped the Star Trek name on because they happened to own it, than Guardians of the Galaxy. I don't get where people are even getting that GOTG vibe, aside from the Zoe Saldana connection.

    The trailer was terrible, really no other way to put it. Of course it strongly adhered to the typical idiotic action movie trailer formula, so maybe the actual movie is better. I think from here on out I'll avoid trailers and ads and just hope that's the case.

    Why are people so against rock music in a Star Trek trailer? I don't get it.

    I don't get ANY of this from the trailer at all. It's Insurrection because part of it takes place on an alien planet? Seemed like simply an action-packed short teaser trailer to me. A lot of the Trek movies emphasized action in their trailers. So far so good for Beyond.

    Because The Final Frontier and Insurrection are both known for being mindless action blockbusters?

    Only trombones and chamber music survived WWIII.

    Of course, that has nothing to do that the rights to broadcast popular music on national syndication would be a budget buster. Nothing at all.

    I was disappointed in the trailer. We have a chewed-up starship - just like the last film. We have a girl in face paint for Kirk to lust after. We have someone running around in a big plastic chin that I hope isn't Idris Elba. We have the last second save by the transporter. Nothing there that looked fresh or interesting to me. I hope very much that the film is better than the lame trailer. Even the Into Darkness trailer was better than this one.

    Goodness - he is indeed! I thought he dropped off the radar after NuBSG went off the air several years back.

    I guess evil never sleeps... :devil:
