    Just saw the trailer - I think it looks great. If their looking to push Trek just a little more into mainstream I think they are doing very well. My fiance is not a trekker by any means and she's excited for it, too. I think I'm also of the opinion that as long as Abrams stays true to the spirit of the show and the things that made Star Trek a great franchise, then I really don't give a tribble's behind if they follow established continuity. I mean, sure you can add to it and add to it, but eventually any story starts breaking down and developing continuity errors if it grows large enough and maybe a Berman-free, worry-free fresh start is what the franchise needed.

    I also think that non-fans can feel alienated at times by the vast amount of print, celluloid, tape and digital memory that Star Trek occupies and the extremely long continuity that accompanies it. I still haven't seen every episode of any series. I enjoy Trek very, very much, but I simply don't want to invest in the entire collection because it's too large and keeps upgrading to the next format before I can get close to owning a quarter of the whole shebang. I much prefer to catch it in syndication re-runs, watch a few downloaded or vhs/dvd favorites or just enjoy the films. I think it's great that they're not worrying about pleasing every trek fan and are just trying to make a good movie. :)

    I just saw the trailer as well and I thought it was very good. I think it could be the best Star Trek movie yet. :)

    There are at least four in the trailer.

    The Enterprise

    The Kelvin

    Nero's ship

    Spock Prime's Timeship (or so everyone thinks)

    and bunches of shuttles

    No one can, the image just isn't big enough even at 1080p.

    Spock Prime's Timeship? o_O Ok, even assuming that he lived a ways beyond TNG... the Federation was quite a ways from that level of technology, from what I recall. Where the heck would he get a Timeship? Am I forgetting something? (Not counting all the weird time travel stuff from Enterprise)

    I don't know how much of it will be explained in the movie itself, but IDW is doing a series of prequel comics starting in January.

    An actual comic, you think they'd pass up the revenue? ;)
