  • Star Trek XI trailer

    Anyone seen the new Star Trek XI trailer?
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0XsvgPFQrM

    Any thoughts? I don't think it's too bad on it's own, but it'll surely upset the hardcore Trekkies. This kind of handling the stuff would be okay if it was a reboot, but as a prequel for the ST canon, many old fans will hate it.
    From a neutral but still interested perspective, I think the movie may be okay, if we get a substantial plot, not only action and comedy, but well, most ST movie trailers were just action packed, we'll have to wait and see.

    I thought the whole point is that it is basically a reboot. They have new actors in the iconic roles and if this is successful they will continue with more movies starring them.

                From what I've read concerning some pre-screenings, the story involves an aged Nimoy-Spock travelling back through time to prevent something bad (seen that way too often, I'll have to add). So I think they're not going for a reboot as we've seen with BSG or the 007-franchise - exept for the unlikely possibility that Junior-Kirk & Co do not succeed in preventing this bad thing, create a new future and erase the previous timeline...!

                @ vakie: Thanks for the pics. We'll nice outfit for the Enterprise, looks like an updated version of the 1701-A from the TOS-movies...

                  The nacelles are cylindrical like in the series though. Hard to see in that pic but you can see it in other pics.

                    Okay, getting my geek on for a moment.

                    I liked the trailer well enough. Quinto looks so much like Nimoy it is scary.

                    But I do have 2 complaints as to how this movie seeming relates to established Trek continuity and canonocity.

                    1: It has long been established that the Enterprise was built at the San Francisco shipyards. Not Iowa.

                    2: Kirk barely knew Pike let alone served on the same ship as him. This was established in the TOS episode Menagerie, where Pike was introduced. Kirk said that he met Pike only briefly when Pike became fleet Captain. Spock was the only TOS crewmember to have served under Pike.

                    Sorry getting out of geek mode now.
                    All generalizations are false, including this one.

                      I do think it is a reboot, and I would classify Nimoy more like "stunt casting" or a cameo. I don't think the fact that they're using Nimoy is meant to imply that he is coming from the original continuity. I think they're just paying respect to the original. AstroBoy points out continuity changes and those are likely to multiply as they make their own way through the basic elements since they aren't constrained by what has gone before.

                        I wouldn't really call it a reboot. The writers actually followed a lot of the show, checked out some of the novels, incorporated some ideas from each and came up with a new story that wasn't quite filled out yet. Yeah, they probably bent a few things around to fit the story (Pike), although
                        I think it's supposed to be an emergency mission, as opposed to a long assignment where Kirk is serving under him
                        but it's still meant to mostly fit.

                        I believe Nimoy's Spock does come from the "current continuity" --
                        it's just him in the 24th-century going back in time.


                        The ship is being built in San Francisco -- Orci mentioned that in an interview somewhere (the plaque says San Francisco.) The scene in Iowa is just Kirk as a kid. The scene on the bike is from years later. Perhaps he's speeding up the 280 and runs into the shipyards.

                            Sounds pretty actiony and epic, which I guess is good..

                            The plot sounds like.. (SPOILERS)

                            the Romulans seem to be more after the Vulcans and destroying their homeworld, they don't really seem to care about going after Kirk, as was previously rumored.

                              I tend to agree with you, JoeD80. No reboot, just an updated prequel with some minor "changes" of the canon. I don't have a problem with that, VOY and ENT did that all the time...
                              Hey, maybe Spock ist the "future guy" from ENT...

                              I think if they intended to go for a reboot, they would have done some more major changes to the characters, the designs, the uniforms,...

                              The only real indication for a reboot would be the title, as it only says "Star Trek" without giving any number, but that may as well just be homage to the original TOS title.
