I saw the trailer before Quantum of Solace last night. Looks lame. They have the Asian guy from Harold and Kumar as one of the main characters BTW.

That would be Sulu.

Is it me or is this no longer just a story of Kirk and Spock at the academy? It's looking like they're fitting this in to during Kirk's days as captain of the Enterprise as part of the "re-telling".

I kind of like the look of it actually.  It will be a fun pop-corn movie I think.  I am tired of being a movie critic anymore.  I just go to be entertained and have a decent time anymore with these flicks.  That way you do not get too disappointed if it sucks.

I'm liking this.

I've never been a trekkie/trekkor, but this movie looks pretty darn good.

It took a SW fan (Abrams) to make a good ST movie...lol.

I've never been Star Trek's biggest fan, but I am curious to see what JJ Abrams does with it.  I definitely won't see this opening weekend, but I'll probably see it in the theater (especially is it's in IMAX).

I think it looks pretty good too.  Admittedly, I'm not the biggest Trek fan either - I watched the old show in reruns, and most of the original movies (although its been awhile now) - but the last new Trek I watched was The Next Generation series.  Anyways, as someone with enough knowledge to know who the characters are, but not necessarily knowing enough about the universe to know if its "raping anyone's childhood" as we've heard in Star Wars - it looks like a fun movie to me.  Plus, starting things out with a young cast like this could set the stage for a nice new sci-fi franchise and make Trek popular with the masses again.

I don't think he's capt yet, this is more like their first assignment or something.  I think the original capt, he was in like the VERY first episode and that was it is the capt.
