Man, there are a lot of trailers being released right now...

If you plan on boldly going where no Roddenberry has gone before then click here to be beamed up, thanks to Latino Review.

Hey, I'm a doctor Jim! Not a comedian...

To boldly go... NOWHERE.

This trailer rocks. It updates Trek but yet still preserves it for the fans. This trailer celebrates the mythos behind the Kirk Character and does it justice. It's too bad that the original cast never had this kind of budget and big canvas to play on, but it looks like J.J. is breaking some new ground and all the while keeping the tone, texture and flavor of Trek. It's too bad The Shat is not in it, but maybe that would have been laugh out loud funny. But it just might be better to preserve the character the way he once was (and I am not talking dying off a bridge in "Generations"). After Lucas, I swore I was done with the "prequelidas", but I am willing to give this a shot - it HAS to be better than Menace (although that wouldn't be trying too hard). I just hope Jar Jar doesn't make a cameo appearance.

THAT ain't James T. Kirk. Trek is over. Like Battlestar Galactica it's time for NEW franchises, not resurrecting dead ones.

PROP 8 SULU said...

That's coming from a guy who probably watched the Star Wars prequels ten times in the theatre.
The new Sulu looks hot!

Digital Jedi said...

Who ever said Star Trek was dead? Surely you're geeky enough to know how vibrant that franchise is and always has been.

On opening day I will be staying home watching my blurays of the original series in high def glory and bowing at the altar of The Shat. JJ has jettisoned the science fiction and turned it into MI:3 and spiced it up with sprawling CGI effects for a generation with ADD syndrome. At least they got one thing right in the trailer: "James T. Kirk WAS a great man but that was another life."

Absolutely goddamn right.

Shweaty, you and Prop 8 Sulu need to just chill. Relax. Take it easy. Maybe together?

PROP 8 SULU said...

I love Trek. I love men in tight pants. This trailer had both.

THE GORN VS. THE SHAT said...

Hey CKSB, I am glad you mentioned BSG. At least BSG is doing something right, the Captain is going down with his ship, THAT was the way Kirk should have gone - he would have cowboyed up and let the crew go and give a final toast to the "old girl". Adama is the new Kirk, The Shat should be taking some lessons from Eddy James O.

Captain Kirk's Shweaty Balls said...

Kev, your manliness card has been revoked. Repent at the altar of The Shat.

I'm too busy blowing into the horn of Gondor.

PROP 8 SULU said...

Just make sure it is the horn of Gondor that you are blowing, that is, if you are straight of course. If not, have a fab u lous time!
