First of all I would like to say that I'm am a big Star Trek fan specially of the originals and have been very concerned about what this movie is going to be like?
Thankfully all our worrys have been put to rest. The new Star Trek film is going to blow everyone away. It is fantastic, it's NEW, it's BIG, BOLD and EPIC. This is going to be the Star Trek Movie which people have always dreamed of seeing. I really was shocked in what we was shown because I really was NOT expecting this to be that great.

I see empire have put up a review & I would say if you really do want to read spoilers then head over their. I only want to express my opinion to all the fans that have also been concerned that you do not have to worry this film really does work.

Few things I will say though are both Batman and Bond have had a complete make over ''in a good way'' now Star Trek is in the same league.
Pine is great as Kirk as are the rest of the crew, really well cast. The sets are great and really have been brought up to date. And lastly the Enterprise looks fantastic.
Thanks for your input, Tanman. I have to admit to my jealousy of those who had the privalege of seeing this preview, but I'm glad to read another opinion and can't wait to see the movie.

That was an even better description and I'm fine with Kirk being attracted to Uhura and behaving like an *** toward her....I like it!!

I think Kodos has to be a factor. It's such a huge biographical point....to ignore it would be a bit like ignoring that Spock's mother was human.

If it's not Gabe's Enterprise, fine. That was only my THEORY...
PLEASE Tanman, tell us that Shatner doesn't make an appearance??

I really like the whole design of what we have seen so far. It heralds back to its ascension and it has a whole new futuristic edge to it. I am a PC user (I love Vista btw), but Mac's are way prettier.

As for the naccelles being too BIG... I just know that Zardoz will find a place for them in his heart!

As far as I know Shatner is still NOT in the movie. Nothing was said by JJ about a surprise apperance by William Shatner. He's name didn't even come up!
Personally I would have loved to have seen him be in this movie (in some way or another/even flashback wise) but NOW I really do think that story can be put to rest.

Another point that I'd say is about Eric Banners charecter NERO. He is a complete Bad ***! This is def the first time since Khan that we really have had a decent villain.

Glad to hear that we get some bad*** Romulans. Due to visual similarities between Nero and the Reman Viceroy I had some fear that they might screw up the Romulans like in Nemesis

I really wish that after all this time and people wanting to finally see the new enterprise they had released a better shot. Even waited for the trailer, because the pic that has been released of the new E really doesn't do her justice as I keep on saying and saying.
