    I must be one odd male trekkie since I don't care much for Seven of Nine but B'Elanna (the half-Klingon, half-caliente-latina).

    Shatner's too busy yucking it up in Brad Paisley videos. Have you seen Online? He's hilarious. And he seems to show up at Paisley's concerts too.

    Shatner, Jason Alexander and Little Jimmy Dickens, who all show up in Paisley's videos could be Ferengi in the new movie.

    some might say that a klingon/latina mix is pretty much = hyper hot-blooded latina, but with ridges.

    can you imagine a vulcan/klingon mix? talk about conflicted! that's like being japanese and filipino...holding it all in, as serene and stoic as mount fuji then alla sudden...blow up in a tempest like mount pinatubo.

    There was a brief preview of Star Trek before the Cloverfield movie started at Ward Theaters.

    It had some historical voiceovers relating to space exploration while the visuals had construction going on, then you get to see the familar Enterprise saucer section still not completed and then saying "Under Construction".

    Someone has already uploaded a filmed-in-a-theater video of the "Star Trek" prequel trailer.

    I'm no Trekker, but I have enjoyed almost every one of the Trek motion pictures. I find this one interesting. If you've seen Tom Hanks and Catherine Zeta Jones in The Terminal (underrated movie; I don't know what all the critics' problems were with this film), you got a good, hot look at the actress slated to play Uhura, Zoe Saldana. When I first heard about the film, I thought Gabrielle Union would have been a great choice, but maybe she doesn't look young enough anymore.

    Also, I don't know much about the acting chops of the guy who plays the Chairman on Iron Chef America, but doesn't he look like he could be a young Sulu?

    Scriv:
    I'm in the same spaceship. I admire Star Trek from afar, and remember watching the original series. when we land on it by accident here at home, the girls go bonkers, they love it! I just can't stand the cheesy romantic story lines. But I digress.

    The Chairman does indeed look like he could be a young Sulu! Apple anyone?

    A friend of mines who I launch rockets with said that one of the previews to Quantum of Solace is Star Trek. I didn't ask for more details since I am planning on watching Quantum of Solace tomorrow.

    New Star Trek movie TRAILER!

    It looks more like Michael Bay directed it, IMO

    I should have asked my friend which theater he was watching Quantum of Solace since today's showing at Ward did not show the Star Trek trailer.

    The trailer is also available at the Apple Movie site. I have to admit that when I first viewed the trailer I was thinking "did I click on the right movie"?

    Maybe the director is giving a hip edge look how the essential characters became who they are in their adult years.
    Do have to say that Zachary Quinto who is known as NBC's Heroes "Sylar" looks dead on as a younger version of Nimoy's .
    I myself was not much TV Trekkie but did watch ST The Movie, Khan, definately the one where they were in SF & a few others that came after but not the whole series. J.J. Abrahams (sp?) has done a fair share of good movie/sequels though Cloverfield, ugh Don't get me started.

    J.J. Abrams only produced Cloverfield, he did not direct it.

    Anyway my comment about the trailer was actually about the first 40 seconds were it is showing a car chase, something that was never shown during the original Star Trek's TV series run.

    Just an update to the movie Star Trek. It opens on May 8, 2009, which is 2 months from now (2 months, 7 days or 68 days). The Apple Movie Trailer web site has so far 3 different trailers for this movie.

    blegh. i'm not at all motivated to see another story that builds needlessly on the heroic legacy of james tiberius kirk. i will say it again--they should have moved forward with new stories for the DS9 and VGR crew. the trailers are pretty hot and all, but meeeeeeeeeeeeeh. the fact that abrams is taking on the beginning of a story we all know the ending of just cements my opinion that he's a scherazade with the talent to weave ever complicated tales that pull you in...but unlike the truly great story tellers, he lacks a matching ability to end such stories meaningfully.

    Oh. For a moment there, I thought you were talking about Brannon Braga ... or Rick Berman.

    I'm just going to try and keep an open mind with Abrams' retelling of the original iconic Trek.

    It's like having to read Jack Kirby's version of the X-Men and then Chris Claremont's version. (Don't ask me who took over, haven't read a comic book since Y2K hoopla).

    As a suggestion you might want to use this thread to discuss the various Star Trek series, good or bad.

    As far as this movie is concerned I don't know if this is a prequel or a reboot of the Star Trek universe. I guess one would know when the starting credits of this movie says "based on" or "inspired by".

    From the trailers, it's a little bit of both.

    From Paramount's POV -- who owns the Trek franchise -- they're banking it is "based on." And if Abrams did succeed in reviving it with a box-office hit, they're hoping for more.
