THanks, good to be here. Although I can't believe anyone (sceptics or not) has made a comment on the fact that the Enterprise construction site seems to be guarded by a 2 foot tall chicken wire fence. Lets just say Kirk had rocket launchers on that bike- 23rd century- it's possible- They had them in James Bond...

But why would anyone on Earth be launching rockets from a motorcycle at the Enterprise?

I think the focus is on planetary defense in this era, not border protection of wire fences.

If I was building a starship I'd be putting some pretty tight security around the perimeter. Maybe out of line of site of anyone beyond a certain distance, like in a valley, not a flat plane. Hmm, how about outer space...?

How about perimeter force fields? Works for the brig.

That still assumes that any 'threat' to the ship would be on the ground, which isn't really supported by the "history" of the 23rd century where the threats are extraterrestrial, not earthbound.

I trust Leonard Nimoy's opinion about this movie more than I trust the guy in the video. People thought redoing The Joker wouldn't work because no one could do it better than Jack Nicholson. Heath Ledger proved them wrong. New young actors WILL keep Star Trek alive. Young teens aren't watching the old TOS TV series anymore. Star Trek lore will be lost if it isn't revitalized. What a shame that would be. Good for JJ Abrams for taking a chance. The young actors are putting their careers on the line. Star Trek comes with some negative baggage so for any young actor to jump in is worthy of our appreciation.
