Shut your filthy whore mouth! This Star Trek tickles my Star Trek bone. I am very pleased. :)

If they’re using jetpacks then this is the best movie ever and all the nerds complaining that the Enterprise isn’t exactly the right shape or whatever can fuck off. Star Trek with jetpacks is Even Better Star Trek.

I agree. If there are jetpacks in this movie then any other complaint I might have will fly out the window. Star Trek + Jet Packs == Awesome is an equation that I can get behind.

Abrams can have borg dinosaurs riding rocket-powered ostriches through a galaxy-sized wormhole for all I care, as long as we get a Kirk Summation or a Patrick Stewart Speech at the end.

All, I had to keep reminding myself that you weren’t talking about the LoSH movie. Which is a shame.

If Flapjacks wants company, we can wait in line together. (Well, first we should wait in line for Watchmen, then we can easily segue into waiting in line for this.)

The three reasons I’ll see this movie: Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana & John Cho.

So, y’think Kirk’s mom was Thelma or Louise?

Yay! You didn’t murder Flapjacks over the Tomcats issue…

Wow. Am I the only person who loved the first trailer, but absolutely dislikes this one? It just seems like standard fare. The Kirk with the car in the beginning? Ugh. Idiotic.

This will not be my cup of tea, I can tell that already…

It doesn’t look like a Star Trek trailer. This can only be counted as a good thing, as ST movies have a tendency to suck. I’m vaguely optimistic.

The thing that got to me was – building a spaceship that big on Earth? Why? Seriously, even if you have the technology to support that shape in Earth gravity, and get it off the planet, it’s still going to be a colossal waste of energy and resources.

Will:

In a word – because it’s canon.

… Over on Livejournal I have a whole icon for saying canon is dumb. And on the one occasion on which I could have used it without feeling like a petulant little bitch, I’m in an icon-free zone.

Actually, I thought the canon was actually that it was built in space. Which makes more sense. Would have liked the trailer better if there was some promise there would be a story here instead of some fan-favorite actors and Chris Pine doing the most expensive cosplay ever.

A plaque on the Enterprise’s bridge just mentions San Francisco.

Allegedly, the Writer’s Guide for the original series said the Enterprise was built in San Francisco on Earth.

This ends tonight’s Nerd Alert.

I’m not a trekkie. I don’t like any of the tv series really. But I have always liked the movies. Even the ones people hate. Well Final Frontier did suck, but I liked Search for Spock and Generations

But I don’t like the smell of this new movie. I don’t care about canon or how the ship looks, I just think it smacks of a bad reboot. I mean, am I the only one who doesn’t really care about Kirk and Spock anymore? More importantly, is there nothing left of the Star Trek universe than to return to the original series for inspiration? If so, why bother, why doesn’t JJ just make his own sci-fi universe? Or better yet, a Mass Effect movie!

At the risk of being…. well. ok. There’s no secret that I’m a nerd of high caliber. I am pretty sure there’s replicator technology built into the first Enterprise, so I would not find it that strange that anyone who wanted to could have a perfect replica of pretty much any car they wanted.

Hell if Kirk wasn’t such a damn cowboy, it COULD have been a Delorean…

In the end though, will it sell t-shirts?

Bender: There already was a Mass Effect movie. It was called Mass Effect. I watched it on my PC, it was okay.

Why so suprised about seeing Boobies in STAR TREK? The series have always had ’em, even if the characters sprouting them were annoying (lookin’ at you, Troi.Seven of Nine, too.) Boobies have always been a cornerstone of TREK (although admittedly not as much in the movies, probably because of the casts being older).

Last time, it was Star Trek + Dune Buggies. Maybe this will work out better.

I am not a ST fan, and especially a Quinto fan. But this looks great. IMO.
