Default Empire Has Major Spoilers

Very long article, super duper heavy on spoilers.

http://www.empireonline.com/empireblog/Post.asp?id=313





EDIT: *sigh* I can't type. That should be ST:XI in the title, but I can't edit it. Back to my coffee.
EDIT2: Woo, check me out, I figured out how to edit the title!

Hmm ... I wonder why the title appears as I want it to here, but not on the forum main page? This is beyond me.

I only read the article down to the first clip description ... I don't want to spoil it for myself. But OMG, I can't wait for this movie to come out.

Sounds pretty cool to me. Can't wait to fill in the blanks.

I wonder if they're coordinating with Shatner's recent Academy book.

Exclamation Time Travel Strikes Again

Well, we all knew it was coming anyway, didn't we?
From a writer's perspective I've noted every little plot givaway and jotted it down on my mental padd.
Spock has traditional been one to meddle. See non-canon but nevertheless integral Vonda McIntre's "The Enropy Effect", as well as David Gerrold's "Yesteryear". Both featured Spock excelling in the art of fine-tuning history.
When Spock "feels" the effect of a time-ripple, he acts upon it.

So on to more discussion of the various scenes:

Kirk getting into fights? Typical.
Chekov with the accent problem? Somewhat predictable.
Sulu waving about his rapier? Strange.
Uhura showing some skin? Feh.

Most notable is Spock's range of emotion; supposedly due to some unforseen problem. I'm guessing that Vulcan being attacked is a good reason...

As I'd pointed out in the new trailer thread, I'm most concerned with the development of Kirk's character: will we see Tarsus IV? Will we know why Kirk acts the way he does? I hope so. Such nods to canon can really make or break a movie like this for me.

I can almost taste the feeling of the movie, but without seeing the trailer myself I can't be sure. In 5 days time I'll have a better grip on all of this. For now, (grimly) I must wait.

It all sounds very exciting and I expect to enjoy it as a Trek movie, but I can't help but think that the 'respect' of canon that Abrams promised in interviews, while existing, is not as strong as many have hoped for. However, it is done now, and no amount of huffing and puffing and fulminating is going to make any difference to the movie that will be released.
