A doctor doesn't have to drink a cup of "coolant fluid"—whatever that is—to know it'll kill him; therefore, the Saint doesn't have to go see this movie to know it's bad. Impeccable, unassailable...

It's from one of the Matrix sequels, a speech to Neo by the Architect.

Right you are. According to the IMDb, the actress in the scene is Rachel Nichols (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0796366/) and she's supposed to be Orion.

I think it's Spock. If 24 and Heroes are anything to go by, Quinto is a pretty mediocre actor; and Spock is a tough character to play convincingly.

When I first saw the trailer it reminded me of Maverick riding his motorcycle in Top Gun.

Indeed, Star Trek is enjoyed by many people from all walks of life. The same could be said about pornography. That doesn't mean there's no stigma attached to it.

If you watch the teaser trailer closely, the "little shark fin" does appear to be on the nacelles.

Seeing the same actors in different roles on a TV series has never bothered me. My suspension of disbelief only requires a good performance. It's not so different from watching Harrison Ford play Han...

Changing things "back to normal" at the end of the film would defeat the purpose of changing them in the first place. Regardless of the time-travel justification, the point was to update the look of...

I'd love to see Ronald D. Moore create his own Trek series. He could do one that takes place in a mirror universe with the Federation as the bad guys. Or maybe a series about Section 31. I've always...

While I agree that there's very little science in what Orci says, it's not really his job to educate the public about quantum mechanics. Right now, it's his job to sell this film. If talking out the...

Not only did Abrams direct, but Orci and Kurtzman wrote MI:III. So, it's a good film to look at if you're wondering what to expect from this one. MI:III was actually my favorite of the franchise.

You lost me at "Nero would never have conceived of his idea to travel into the past." Who said Nero's idea to travel into the past had anything to do with Spock? Is that in the interview? I didn't...

That's the way it used to work, but, not to be contentious, that flatly contradicts Orci's most recent statements.

If I were a Trekkie of the canon-centric variety, my preferred theory would be that...

I see what you're saying, but when I read the interview the references to the theory felt very pointed. He sounded like a political candidate trying to justify a controversial position.

I think he thinks that if we think the changes they made for this movie are somehow based on an actual scientific theory, the canon-centric Trekkies are more likely to accept them.

The funny thing...

Trailers don't have continuity. When you say "continuity errors," do you really mean "historical continuity errors?"
