Wow... by today's standards, that trailer looks terrible xD Dodgy dialogue, over-reliance on spamming the hokey visual effects... Hardly a good introduction to the movie

And they gave the voice over to an actor who plays essentially a "Redshirt" in the movie....

Thank god, i thought i would be crucified if i said TMP was a bad movie, atleast we can be sure JJ wont make it like TMP, and let me see...........wasnt Roddenberry the one who made TMP the stinkfest it was? Give JJ a chance, he has his own genius, let him try it out in ST.

Kids....Trek was always about making money for the people behind it....that's why we got crap episodes with crap effects....Roddenberry would never do something like give up his pay for a episode so they could hire a better script writer.

Money = success = future Trek....

Why is someone who recognizes that bad?

They're not. But if that's all that matters to the creators, then why do they give us this pseudo-Trek, instead of what we really want? Wouldn't that make them even more money? Or are our pocketbooks not deep enough for them?

Except:

Good Trek = more money than Bad Trek(Nemesis) (or) Pseudo Trek(Enterprise) (or especially) Bad Pseudo Trek.

Because Success in Hollywood is measured in Money. Therefore your equation may as well read:

Money = Money = future Trek. Star Trek itself comes out, then, to one-half of one-third of the equation.

Why is recognizing the problem with that bad?

Money, money, money, money, money. Damn money! Doesn't anyone do something because they love it anymore? Or for the simple beauty of it? My, my, what an impass this world has come to because of something that only exists because WE give it value. It makes me feel like the one lemming that has the brains not to dive off of the cliff.
