    I like it, a blend of the modern while harking back to the old.

    Its nice that the actors they've picked do in some way resemble the original cast. I'm particularly looking forward to see how Karl Urban (the Rider of Rohan turned Bourne villain turned Pathfinder) handles the role of Dr McCoy.

    I understand the film will involve yet another time travel theme, which I think is overused in Star Trek. It worked well in certain episodes like "City on the Edge of Forever" and "Yesterday's Enterprise", but I just dont like the whole idea of villains going back in to the past to change the future.

    Anyhows I'm sure the young director JJ Abrams will do a decent job.

    Cheers,
    Ram

    Ok, don't ask where I got this from but it looks like the old McQuarrie design to me;

    oh yes i read something like that

    I think its because the the story is not strong enough.

    My thoughts the same.

    It has been delayed because Paramount thinks it has so much box office potential, therefore they have put it back until next May.

    Paramount is pushing back the release of J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek" from Dec. 25 to May 8, 2009, saying the pic's gross potential is greater as a summer tentpole. Insiders have a different view however; according to Star Trek expert DarthArsenal6 the story is "not strong enough". In a second communique from the man known as "The Offical Star Trek Encyclopedia: vol 2" he went on to agree with himself.

    btw continuity thingy - in the movies dont they travel in time? i believe it is done in voyger (the rubbish series) as well!

    so maybe they might eff the stuff up that way so it matches? if so thats a REALLY poor storyline!! lol

    I smell a rat, I must admit. It's funny how the release date push-back coincided with the writers strike coming to a head. What's more, a Boxing Day release would have been very profitable if you go by how well I am Legend performed and that most films released at that time of the year are kids films, not to mention the real big guns, that being Bond 22 and Harry Potter, are out in November ergo making the competition in December pretty small. Much smaller then in May at any rate!!

    Perhaps they've decided that Star Trek has got to the stage where they have little inspiration left (although Enterprise should've shown them that) and they want it to die with dignity by trying to make it a massive summer movie.



    It might work.

    The thing that gets me worried is what Anton Yelchin (New Chekov) has been saying.

    He talked about the end scene when you see all the crew together and you see everyone in the gold, blue, and red Uniforms.

    That doesn't fit with Captain Pike's Starfleet uniform during the mid 23rd century, there was only Gold, beige and blue. I thought this was a Prequel, So much for continuity.

    ....no red but it was more like green, gold and blue (plus nice mid-grey jackets for the landing party). Anyway, what with all the time travel involved who is to say where this scene takes place?

    From AICN;

    And then? the new Enterprise. As a toy it had a great
    TOS feel to it. It?s a little more ?organic? than the original one and I
    think the two warp engines and the ?bite? taken from the central body are a
    little bit bigger. The floor of the new transporter room is red, by the way.


    We can see evidence of this on the warp nacelles in the teaser trailer. Those two rails towards the rear of the nacelles blend into the structure in the "new" NCC-1701.
