Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=diP-o_JxysA

Really enjoyed the reboot so I have high hopes for this.

I'm so happy to see this franchise still alive. Fans ripped the Enterprise series apart, and I loved it. Unfortunately, Star Trek fans can be very vocal about Star Trek. When I participated on a large community board of fans, most of them said they would rather there not be anymore movies unless "it's done right"

The last movie did well with fans, and new fans... so hopefully Star Trek will live on, even if it's falling short of expectations. Fans have always been too zealous about what the studio does. I'll be happy if the movie doesn't suck - simple as that.

Thanks Kit, I had neglected to post this. The Japanese teaser has extra footage at the end so some of you may want to check it out.

I liked the reboot, not a fan of the darker turn it took but it was enjoyable. The cast was great for the most part. I think Cumberbatch might have made a better Spock, he's got the voice for it.

Agreed, it does seem a lot darker than previous Star Trek but I'm fairly confident it will be good.

Had to check when Enterprise had been released. Can't believe it's been around 11 years.

I thought Enterprise was alright but it felt to me like the series would have been better suited to a one off film.

What's amazing is how long Star Trek Online has been around already. It has a fairly large player base, and the missions are pretty fun even though it's a typical grinding MMO game.

Star Trek Online is worth checking out. It's free to play, and I think it's a lot better than the Star Wars game, and there's plenty to do if you don't mind the grind. The PvP is very traditional and has attacted the elite if you're into that - the players are good and they know all the trick builds no matter how many times the devs rebalance them.

But that's another reason I like to see the movies keep coming. The franchise has slipped into a somewhat stagnent period where we don't see any gaming at all. Back between about 10 and 20+ years ago, the TV, the movies, and the games flowed steadily from the franchise.

I played that game in public school - after school computer club
it was 1978-79

I played it on a terminal with only a tractor feed printer, printing a new page for each turn - the mainframe, located downtown for the whole district, was one of those DASD machines with no RAM, it spooled data on big giant platters.

A new trailer is out exclusive to Apple. Looks really nice but it's not instantly striking me as a Star Trek flick - looks a litttle too heavy.

Just so long as this is better than that "reboot" Star Trek from a couple of years ago.

Sounds rather primitive. When you consider that there were computers where you could have had those 5 1/4" disks or play it off a data cassette, like some did back in those days.

Technology in Public school is primitive ...

I had a full color Apple II later that same year (48K RAM!!! - but only had a cassete player). Considering a simple personal computer cost thousands of dollars, they were probably using the same mainframe for for another decade.

You are familiar with the very same old mainframes powering green/orange screen terminals -this was a big one (in the VAX era even)
They were increadibly reliable and could accomodate many users at once.

Here's a hilarious review of the movie. Did this actually happen? I want to save myself 8 or 9 bucks.

I've only read the first paragraphs of this, but so far it is a spot-on retelling of the entire plot.

[EDIT]Yep, if you read that you no longer have a reason to actually watch the movie. Which is fine if your plan is to not be disappointed.

Yeah it was a pretty dumb movie over all. The plot is a complete nonsense, and the fan-service is just grating.

Also, making the bad guy Khan had no purpose. He might as well've been called Mr. Flibby Flobber for all the difference it made.
