I think if you read the threads here, JJs love of SW over ST , and that influence on this movie, has been talked about quite a bit here.
Still if you want to watch fan-boy (badly) edited, vs snippets, you are probably at home on You(need a life)tube.

JJA might be no Trek fan, but Orci and Lindelof are. Sounds like 'the best of both worlds' to me, a writer and a producer who are fans as well as a writer and a producer who are no fans. You get two perspectives on everything and can approximately judge whether whatever you do tends to work for fans and the general audience.

And not being a Trek fan didn't stop good ol' Nick Meyer from getting rave reviews.

Really? Did you know there are photos of it out now?

You've seen enough to make conclusions. I suspect you're just in ferocious denial about the conclusions you'd naturally be inclined to make.

How do you know what the natural conclusions for everyone would be?

I never said I do know the natural conclusion for "everyone." But when someone is generally optimistic about a subject but fiercely excludes a particular set of data within the subject area, it's generally to avoid acknowledging that said data will diminish his enthusiasm.

I'm waiting to see it in motion on the big screen; I'm not going to judge it by what I see in some relatively tiny freeze-frames on the internet. I'm waiting to hear all the little background noises and to see how the crew interacts with the environment.

And this doesn't?



Looks more like the original series bridge than the iBridge does...has modern instumentation...no garish lighting...no "front window"...no bar code readers...

At least we know they still use duct tape to fix things in the future...look between the bar code readers on the front of the helm board:



Also, anyone get why there's a roll bar on the front of the helm board?

Note the guy taking a leak by the turbolift doors...

And Tim Allen called, he wants his chair from the Protector back...
