    Someone snuck a camcorder into Cloverfield (the irony...). What do you guys think?

        Sadly, the advance screening of Cloverfield I hit didn't have the trailer attached, so all I've seen it on is my computer screen. I really want to see this on the big screen.

          I'm not sure what to make of it. There's a spoiler out there that makes the plot sound like a bad episode of Enterprise stuck up on the big screen, but I'm not sure whether to trust it or not.

          I thought the cgi shots looked really good in the trailer, personally. I'm just wary. I think trek would have been better off on the small screen, but hollywood's just been so excited about taking old tv shows and redoing them with new actors in movie form over the past few years. I don't know whether to expect better or worse because of that.

          I just want a DS9 movie, darnit.

            Deep Space Nine? An unstable television spin-off that every ethical science-fiction fan in the galaxy has declared as dangerously predictable.

            True it got a lot better towards the end but I couldn't get passed the feeling it was a clunky B5 rip-off.

            I thought the trailer looked good and the idea behind the film is close enough to the direct JMS would have taken the show to keep my interest in perked mode.

              The new film really had nothing to do with "Hollywood's preference for re-doing old movies", it had to do with J.J. Abrams' personal affinity for the original Star Trek. When several coincidences of fate brought J.J. (hand-picked by Tom Cruise) to Paramount's table to direct MI:3, he managed to negotiate a five picture development deal (including "Cloverfield") on the condition that one of them would be Star Trek. Paramount, having no active plans for Trek in the near future and really wanting to get MI:3 back on track, agreed.

              I must agree that the trailer looks a hell of a lot better on the official site.

                Personally, I don't like this trailer. It tells us nothing except that a new Star Trek movie is on the way. I already knew that.

                  It's a teaser (Don't Tease Me Bro!), teaser trailers traditionally say very little more than, it's coming get excited!

                  Nice to see the Enterprise is being built in San Francisco as per established canon and not in space as has been the done thing with recently depicted Star Fleet vessels.

                    Consider yourself in the 10% minority - along with those of us who knew what the Cloverfield trailer was when they saw it.

                      Not much meat, but the graphics look nice. A little bit dark (for Star Trek), but a lot of fog, highlights and metal. It that is the general mood of the new movie I expect a lot of the fans go crazy, but Battlestar Galactica fans will love it *g*

                      Anyway, atm one cannot say what kind of film it will be (at least *I* can't tell), possibly only the construction sequence is in that kind of mood. Maybe it will be showed in the beginning with the starting credits? I can envision that...

                      I *loved* Enterprise (the first season) with their "low tech" approach (but they got too much tech too soon, for my taste), so I guess the welding and cutting and so on could be a hint to a "low tech" approach with that movie?

                        There is some excellent info on the film over at trekmovie.com. Orci, Abrams and some of the cast did an all day forum chat with the folks there from the bridge of the new Enterprise while they were filming. Wonderful interplay there (even considering some of the hardcore idiots who still believe B&B were gods and Trek can never be changed in the least).

                        What's really funny is that between the chat and the fact that Orci has been reading the forums and responding in them, answering fans questions and generally making nice, I find their responses to all of this odd from a B5 perspective, since our Great Maker has been talking to us from the beginning. They all act like it's the most wonderful new thing but we're all used to it...even Whedon fans are used to it. Guess Trek fans are way behind the times.

                        I keep wanting to post something to welcome them to the club of creators who care about their fans...something Trekkers haven't had since the Great Bird was around. God knows B&B only cared about themselves.

                        Anyway, from the chat (and there's a pic of Abrams at one of the consoles on the new bridge -- can't see much but it's definitely going to be different) I believe that Abrams and crew and cast are very serious about this Trek and doing it right. It's shaping up to be a great film from what I've read. I'm really looking forward to this...Trek, finally, from an actually creative team.

                          Yeah, it's a lot like the days of Legend of the Rangers on B5TV.com, where actors were coming in and chatting (hell, a few of us even started writing a chain-story with Warren Takeushi). Just the other day, the welder from the trailer came in and chatted. At his audition, the call went out: Does anyone here know how to weld? The rest is history.
