Cool

I like the shot of the Enterprise going into warp and the shot of Kirk and Spock standing on the bridge together.

I didn't like the shot of Kirk looking up at the Enterprise being built. He looks at least 18 and the Enterprise was launched in 2245. Kirk was born in 2233. He was 12 when the Enterprise first launched. Obviously since this a reboot a lot of canon is going to get stepped on and I can live with that if this movie energizes Star Trek again.

I also don't think they should have messed with the Enterprise exterior design. They should have stuck to the original, but updated it slightly.

Yeah, because Star Trek never tries to use "sex appeal" to drive up ratings.

Also please note it is a trailer. Every trailer, especially Star Trek trailers, "throw in" stuff for sex appeal and action/suspense appeal.

There's absolutely nothing futuristic about Star Wars, since it all happens a long time ago...

There is something historic about the car, we just don't know what yet. My guess is that the car either belongs to Kirk's father or perhaps his 'bad' Uncle. We'll see in a few months.

As for things I like: the shot of the E jumping into the 'debris field' and a crisis was indeed cool, but it also gained a new quality I really haven't experienced before -- the visual depth of field. TREK's 'viewer' shots always tended to look flat in prior films... a bright ship in dark space. Even the nebula and V'ger shots never looked deep on the bridge viewer, it always gave the impression they were watching TV on a big screen.

On my first few trailer viewings, I got the uncanny impression the Enterprise was 'falling' into the space and that they weren't merely viewing the debris, they were on collision course with it. Nicely done, and I hope to experience that more in the film.

You do know that Captain Pike's first name is Christopher, don't you?


Liked..... Bones.

Disliked..... "My name is James Tyberious Kirk." That line just feels a little forced.

Oh yeah... eh... oops... I retract... lol...



I have a feeling the scene with the car is something like this:


Kirk's uncle owns this car and it's his favorite thing in the world.

Kirk has fight with uncle or his uncle is a big meanie.

Kirk gets back at uncle by trashing uncles prized car....

just a guess but that would be OK if this is the case

I really hope there will be something new to rip to shreds soon. Rehashing this old stuff is a snooze-a-palooza.

Oh, you're right. And when you're right, you're right. And you're right.

I agree that putting the car scene in the trailer was used as a total throw-off to surprise the viewer when he/she realizes it's the ST trailer.

The viewscreen I also agree with - it does give a perspective that has never really been seen in Trek- I think it's the view combined with the action in the foreground on the bridge. Something like that has never been shown before so kudos to JJ on that direction. I hope that Pike, like Han Solo, remembered to emerge from light-speed with his shields up.

I also agree that the "My name's James Tiberius...." didn't quite fit. Nowhere in Trek history did Kirk even introduce himself that way. Had he said "...James T. Kirk," I think that would have been more believable.

Uhura stripping and Pine on top of the Orion girl... went by too quickly. In fact, I think half the trailer should have been devoted to those scenes.

I disliked the fact the ship (not sure if it was the E or the Kelvin) comes out of warp right smack in the middle of a debri field. I mean...were sensors down and they were "flying blind"?
