It looks like a preview for a Transformers movie – nothing but HUGE, AWESOME EXPLOSIONS! Hope there’s more to the final product.
And so a planet with a population numbering in the BILLIONS needs to call in an active-duty Space Navy Captain to stop a Bad Guy because…the FBI is busy?
Why not a movie where the Captain of the USS Enterprise (CVN-65) is called in to stop Bane?
Is this the sequel to “Star Trek – the Alternate Universe” where planet Vulcan was destroyed and someone barely out of the Academy was given command of a capital ship? Yeah, I’ll be sure to watch it… oh wait, I guess I might be a little too old to watch since I’m NO LONGER A TEENAGE BOY.
Great: yet another CGI explosion/jumping/over the top action snoozefest. Seriously, what is it with all the jumping in these movies? Avatar, Twilight (judging from the previews), Transformers, everyone jumps into the attack. Yeah, no, that doesn’t work too well actually since you have that nice, predictable trajectory and no cover. Not exactly what you want when your enemy has guns or can just, you know, step out of the way and laugh while you fall on your posterior.
I was thrilled when the first JJ Abrams Trek came out, mainly because I have been Trek-starved for so long. But it only took a couple of viewings for the excitement to wear off and for me to realize how awful his version of Trek was. Now I think it’s nearly as bad as Star Trek V, which was probably the worst of all Star Trek films.
I loved Lost, but JJ Abrams made me realize Berman was actually pretty damn good at running Trek, and the fanboys who hate him ultimately did themselves (and the rest of us) a disservice by running him off. Recent viewings of Deep Space 9, Voyager, and even Star Trek: Enterprise (actually a good show, contrary to its rep) on Netflix have solidified my opinion.
I would like a new TV series more than another movie, but not if it’s based on this new Abrams-universe of Trek. We were better off before he got ahold of it.
As for THIS movie, I might watch it when it ends up on Netflix and I can stream it, but not before.
Berman made the Trek franchise stink to high heaven. The essence of Star Trek is about kicking alien butt when you aren’t on top of it giving it a good shagging.
Under Berman, Trek devolved into solipsistic navel gazing and “what have I done to make them hate me so much” storylines.
Time to suit-up, grab a phaser and slap a green-skinned chick on the ass for good luck.
I don’t think Gene Roddenberry would agree with you.
Roddenberry pitched Star Trek to the networks as “Wagon Train to the Stars”, hardly the relativistic pap that Berman and Braga excreted in TNG.
I think there are two kinds of ST fans: Roddenberry worshippers and everyone else. The Great Bird’s acolytes buy into the myth that Roddenberry’s “vision” was the main reason people watched Star Trek. The others simply enjoy Trek as a piece of science fiction/adventure TV. I belong to the latter group. Trek was better when the requirements of running a weekly network television show forced Roddenberry and his replacements to moderate the famous “vision.” The ideal, Roddenberrily-correct future is a very boring place.
Funny, Roddenberry developed TNG.
Incidentally, it sucked donkey nads until he removed himself from the creative process after season two.
TNG sucked donkey nads from the very first episode to the very last episode. Can you say Wesley Crusher? I knew you could.
This may be J. Michael Straczynski fault. Anything which appears to be run by adults would appear to be a suck-up to the legacy of Babylon 5.
Long, leather coat? Really? Must we?
I was getting sick of the Picard movies because with every sequel the lights on the bridge dimmed down a bit further and the costumes lost a little more color. So when Abrams decided to turn the lights on the bridge back on, make it all nice ‘n’ shiny white, and give me colorful costumes again, hey, I was pretty excited!
Now… long, leather coat.
I give up.
Months ago I finally watched all of Star Trek 2.0. It was all surface glitz, it had none of the heart and soul of the other Star Treks, even the annoyingly politically correct ones. I will probably pass on this at the movie houses and maybe see it much later for free just to check it out. That is how I watched the Star Wars prequels after seeing the lame “Phantom Menace”.
Rifle308, just curious.
7.62×39 or 7.62×51 or possibly 7.62×54?
The Star Trek Universe is fascist/totalitarian. EVERYTHING is Starfleet-This or Starfleet-That. There is NO alternative.
What gets me is how Dr. Sheldon Cooper can think that it is Babylon-5 which is derivative.
I loved ST:2009. It was upbeat, engaging, even funny. I laughed, I cried. The casting was perfect. Zoe Saldana kept the long standing tradition of having someone on the bridge so hot it’s a wonder the men get any work done. There was even a theme: these seven people are fated to work together for good.
The 2009 Trek had lots of flaws. Like why the HELL does Engineering look like a brewery? And (as others have pointed out) how could a cadet who hasn’t graduated from the Academy be given command of a starship? But I thought it had some heart. Based on this preview, I’m not sure where the heart went. I think Abrams blew it up or something.
still no seat belts?
what, Ralph Nader has been deleted in the future?
