I hope this one has lots and lots of lens flares. That was awesome! It looked like everyone was constantly beaming down.

Hey, last time they made Spock Uhura’s lover, even though he is supposed to only mate once every 7 years. I guess they had to demolish Vulcn culture in that reboot.

I have no idea what they were thinking, does the Battlestar Galactica show up and attack the Enterprise in the next film?

Nah. Did you see the movie in Oz already?

The good thing is, we KNOW that Kirk & Co. survive, since this movie features the young version of the basic crew and we know we've seen 'em as older people. I really didn't like Eric Bana's villain in the first JJAbrams Star Trek movie, although I really enjoyed the rest of the movie, e.g. Kirk's boyhood and Spock's origins. I could have lived quite nicely without the cameo appearance of Leonard Nimoy in that film as well. Dumb.

Pine, Quint, Cho et al are quite refreshing as younger versions of the crew and I look forward to seeing the Darkness Star Trek movie. We have a bargain matinee theater within walking distance. If I don't like the movie, the world won't end.

The actor who plays Spock is a real-life homo. I’ll probably wait until someone uploads this on torrent.

Actually, the Pon Farr does not impede Vulcans from having normal relations.

Having said that, bringing in Khan like this is a disaster. They couldn’t find a capable Latino or East Indian actor to do this?

The PC-ness of gay loving, political agenda driven Hollywood is enough to gag a maggot. I’ll wait till this drek comes on TV.

Of coarse the young indoctrinated minds will eat this stuff up...on Dads dollar.

This will kill Star Trek forever. It died pathetically, like a broken man with dementia pumped full of pain killers.

Next up will be abrams killing Star Wars.

Unfortunately, yes, they will. Including my wife.

Who won’t take me because I truly hated the reboot and she claims I spoiled it for her. I even tried to force my imagination to consider it solely as its own entity without any relationship to other Trek stuff. STILL hated it; maybe even hated it more.

For most people seeing this, I suspect this is not a “reboot” any more tan the Buck Rogers in the 25th Century TV show was a reboot of the Buck Rogers serials. To these youngsters, it IS Trek. So, yes, it will make its money.

That image needs tons of lens flare and heavy use of blue filter.

Hell, they had to demolish Vulcans in that reboot. They are now an "endangered species".

I had to laugh at this person when he seemed to be upset that they had completely redone the "Wrath of Khan" movie with a different ending. Star Trek lore and mythology means nothing to Abrams, he is re-booting the series and making it his own. He is not interested in redoing what Gene Roddenberry had envisioned; he is making Star Trek his own, and that means changing things around.

Now, I don't think Wrath of Khan needed any re-doing -- it is, by far, the best Trek film. But, I don't have any say in this, so thats, that. I'm not sure I want to go to this one, though; partly because I liked the original Wrath of Khan so much I don't want that spoiled.

You know, they could have simply done a “Kirk and the Gang - The Early Years” without the alternate timeline twaddle. However, as you noted, that would have prevented Lensflare Abrams from crapifying it with his particular genius. Heck, they could have gone so far as exploring a different aspect of the Trek Universe they way that DS9 and Voyager did, but that would not have allowed Captain Blue Filter to leave his stain, er, mark on established characters.

Vulcan “went boom” in this alternate timeline? Sheesh. Why not just do a film set in the “Mirror Universe”, as you suggested?
