I agree with Rick McCallum, but Ben Burtt the sound guy???? Is he really a yes-man?

Ben was the editor on all 3 prequels as well as being the sound guy.  To me, the editing was a huge downfall of the entire Prequels which is a symptom of the Editor not being able to say no to the Director.

I see your point. Hopefully this movie doesnt fall into the same trap though.

I have to admit, I'm not necessarily a huge Trek fan - but there was a time when I watched it fairly regularly.  My Dad was into the original series (and movies), so I remember watching those repeats as a kid - and we both also got into The Next Generation for a time, but the first couple season of that was probably the last Trek that I watched.  This new movie looks kind of nifty though, and I'm starting to get more interested after reading that article (thanks for posting Dale).

I can just see Spock pointing one of his fingers at the guy's head to start cutting.

So is this still supposed to be a prequel or is it now a reboot? ???

Most of the "updates" I don't really care about but I keep coming back to one thing: the Enterprise bridge:



I see why they wanted to modernize it, but even the layout doesn't resemble the "real" bridge. They're copying the basic look of the universe, down to duplicating the TOS uniforms in a different material ... so why completely redo the bridge? There would have been plenty of ways to update the tech without wholesale redoing the design. ???

Quoted from comingsoon.net

Quote
Paramount Pictures has added a countdown clock on the official website for J.J. Abrams' Star Trek that is counting down to 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern on Monday, November 17th. At that time, the new official trailer will be revealed online, though you can watch it earlier in theaters this weekend with Quantum of Solace.

Couldn't look any more like Dawsons Creek/One Tree Hill/90210/Gosip Girls if they tried.

This movie is going to SUCK!!!!

Well look at the bright side. Maybe Spock will eat Kirk's brains. ;)

IGN has descriptions up of not only the upcoming trailer, but also some scenes that were recently shown to them (and others, I'm guessing).  Spoilers are there, so if you're avoiding though you might not want to read it.  It sounds like they were impressed with what has been shown so far.  Reading through some of the scenes they were shown, it sounds like they are kind of trying to "Star Wars" it up a little bit, but maybe just one scene is making me think that.  Like I said earlier, I'm no expert on Trek, but did watch the show in repeats (and the earlier movies) with my dad when I was a kid.  It never appealed to me the way Star Wars did, but I'm willing to give it a chance.

I have been reading about some of the 20 minutes of footage screened for the press that were released online, sounds good thus far.

EW.com has a pic posted of an exclusive first look at the Enterprise. Spoiler in linky, you have been warned!

I'm impressed.  :P

I think it looks good.  I've personally not really enjoyed a Star Trek movie since Kahn, so hopefully this reboot will be more like the newer Batman movies and less like the newer Superman movie.
