    I thought he was doing the voice of Smaug, not the Necromancer.

    Disappointed, but only because the first Abrams Star Trek had the best trailer on the face of the planet.

    Kind of hard to tell just for that minute of footage. Is there even any space battles?

    Something makes the Enterprise crash into the bay. Could be a space battle?

    Going by that teaser Star Trek has been SWTOR'd in regards to space battles.

    There are two hints in the Japanese trailer that point to Khan, the line "Is there anything you would not do for your family?" and a scene that shows Kirk and Spock holding up hands to each other through glass reproducing the classic scene from Wrath of Khan.

    However there have also been hints that the villain was once a member of Star Fleet and a friend of Kirk's, which hints at Gary Mitchell.

    Did you guys see the Japanese trailer? It's pretty much the same as the American one, except at the end it shows a scene which appears to be straight out of the original Star Trek 2 ;o They better not kill off Spock, those bastards.

    edit: lol beat me to it

    I wouldn't put it past Abrams to put that scene in the trailer as a misdirection, but we will see. If the bad guy is Khan, Darkness will be inevitably be compared to Wrath and it will be a tall order to match Wrath.

    It's not Khan. You people are nuts if you were a fan of TOS and think it's even possible it's Khan. It's clearly Mitchell.

    5 bucks says Khan's voice will be in the credits or something.

    PS

    Alice Eve is playing Elizabeth Dehner

    Dude, I swear they have destroyed an Enterprise every other ST movie, so them destroying it in this one doesn't surprise me.

    I don't think they do destroy it. It crashes in a big way, yeah, but there's also that little scene with a ship rising back up out of water. At least I think it was water.

    Star Derp: Into the Derpness

    If it's supposed to be into the Darkness, why is there so much Lens Flare!!

    Quote from JJ Abrams

    "I wanted a visual system that felt unique. I know there are certain shots where even I watch and think, "Oh that's ridiculous, that was too many."

    He goes on to admit Lens Flare is overdone in this article but adds, and I'm paraphrasing, "Suck it bitches, I loves me some Lens Flare"

    Yeah, except no.

    The first Enterprise lasted the TV series until the end of the 3rd movie. It was the only one destroyed unless you count the TNG one. And I don't.

    Original Enterprise destroyed in Search for Spock
    Enterprise-A decommissioned after The Undiscovered Country
    Enterprise-B "2329 – Lost (presumed destroyed) after the crew reports contracting an unknown infection"
    Enterprise-C destroyed at the Battle of Narendra III, the C was encountered by the crew of the Enterprise-D in the episode Yesterday's Enterprise
    Enterprise-D destroyed in the movie Generations
    Enterprise-E repaired after the damage suffered in the movie Nemesis

    Most of that comes from Memory Alpha. So yeah, they really didn't destroy that many Enterprises. The Enterprise B was the one that Kirk was lost from at the beginning of Generations, and the Enterprise C was only featured in a time travel episode, so it's only the Original Enterprise and the Enterprise-D that count.

    Even blowing up the original Enterprise at the end of Search for Spock was just a device for them to introduce a new ship. It had been 20 years with the same model for the prop.

    For the record, I hate JJ Abrams, and he can suck my left nut. But the first movie went beyond all my expectations save for the god damned Arrakis worm on an ice planet bullshit. I'm totally giving him the benefit of the doubt with this one. I just wish they'd make it into a TV show for a couple years. Of those actors I think only Simon Pegg might not be able to do it.

    I belive the enterprise in the first movie was new, or a complete rehaul of the orig...but the orig from the series was not blown up.. but both "main" enterprise destructions where to introduce new ships... TNG mostly needed it- as the Enterprise in 5 was much like the ones in 1,2...just built cheaply apparently and did not have the scotty seal of approval!

    There is no cannon for John Harrison. Some think Abrams is trolling but I would be fine with a totally new character.

    I don't have the quote but people on Neogaf were saying both that it had been confirmed to be a cannon villain, and that it was likely Gary Mitchell because Keith Urban mentioned that in some interview or other. I have not confirmed either one of their sources but that's what they're going on.

    It is kind of wierd that they had him be Jack Ryan, not sure why Alec Baldwin isn't good enough anymore, unless he too old.
    I've liked the books and moves of Tom Clancy, but I am not sure Chris Pine can pull that off.

    Khan is still in a deep freeze drifting in the Botany Bay, Kirk never met Gary Mitchell since Kirk was promoted to Captain without graduating the academy and never became Lt. Kirk the instructor. In the original timeline Mitchell was an Academy friend of James T. Kirk, stemming back to the time then-lieutenant Kirk was serving as an instructor and Mitchell was a first-year cadet. Since this never happened, Gary Mitchell is also out.

    It has to be a new character.

    "Space... the Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before."


    Or, sit around Earth and fight space battles vs the same old guys over and over. Whichever.

    It's nothing new. They did the same with Requiem for a Dream's theme, then NiN music due to 300, now Inception. I'd bet movies in the 70's/80's did something similar. Hollywood is all about copying shit.

    Kahn, still makes since-- botanybay could have had many things happen to it in this alternate timeline that awoke kahn... the eugenics war still happend in this timeline- and trailer seems to show him acting a wee bit superhuman-ish with more str agi jumping etc- and again he would be "returning" etc to eath for vengance etc or to reclaim his empire bla bla bla

    Was "veger" a villan?
    Kahn...revenge...
    Klingons in 3...mmmm... somwwhat revenge?
    Probe thing in 4? does that count? like "Veger"?
    Sybok...wtf is 5 anywho
    Klingons in 6...deff revenge...

    Dude in Generations is revenge...or more like emo angsty QQ ima wanna be in paradise
    Borg.... you could call it some vengance as the queen wanted to get picard back and are always picking on federation because its one of the few things that has resisted them.
    Insurrection was revenge of the QQ we dont like being space amish children
    Clone picard was soo regvenge also.


    so with that...in terms of ST movies... revenge is a fairly consistant thing, its faster to set up and resolve.. better for movies than seasons of episodes etc

    Even if you ignore the main plot of the dude trying to get back paradise or whatever in generations, the Duras sisters had a long standing revenge plot against Worf and presumably the Enterprise as well

    Eh, Klingons in 3 were motivated by an somewhat irrational fear of the Federation with a superweapon. Heck, the Starfleet beauracracy was as much a villan. 6 was also not revenge based. It was once again fear of the Federation with a decisive advantage in galactic strength. So sure, go with revenge as a motivator for villany in TNG movies, but those sucked so who cares. TOS movies are based on fear.

    How long until we get some fucking Klingons in these Star Trek movies? I didn't even feel like the Romulans in the last one were real Romulans. I liked the last movie, but didn't really like the villains.

    I dunno. I used to enjoy First Contact, if just for the action. Then I watched the Plinkett review and realized that what First Contact should have been was a 2 hour version of "I, Borg".

    The part I dont like about FirstContact is that the Federation just cannot fight worth a shit, no matter what... even in the DS9 war stuff they are just terribad...nor do they learn from past experiance...its like "We lost 90% of our fleet during the battle of XXXXX, then Picard/Worf/Sisko came in and won the day....so if this ever happens again.....just rush in and get rapesauced again and wait for "the man" to win it all."

    But overall I enjoyed the movie, the space zombies are cool...err borg... and the slightly darker tone was a nice change from kirk and picard riding horses.

    I seem to recall them saying prior to the first movie that they wanted to avoid them (at least at the time) because no matter how they're portrayed, it was going to end up with one pissed off fanboy camp or the other.

    the original fu manchu klingons were best, but i guess thats a little too racist for 2012. i dont like the homeless bum with head trauma klingons either. i guess they could come up with a new take on klingons. and that way both fanboys can bitch about it equally.

    I believe he will be introduced in the IDW comics starting in January. They did a prequel series to the last movie and are doing the same for this one.

    Sure wish I could watch that trailer, Quicktime keeps telling me I need to install it when it's already installed and up to date....so I uninstalled it and reinstalled it and it just keeps telling me the same thing.

    I fucking hate Quicktime.

    Install Quicktime Alternative or Quicktime Lite. I used to use them when I had a Windows computer. They're way better than standard Quicktime.

    Guess it wasn't Quicktime, it was my shitty browser that was stopping it. Time to get rid of it.

    Also, trailer and extended cut preview looked great.

    J.J. Abrams Screened All of 'Star Trek Into Darkness' for Dying Trekkie

    Class act. The best PR moves are the ones done from the heart.

    Oh god I have such a man crush on Karl Urban. He is second only to Nathan Fillion in my fantasy hetero bro mate for life list ...which I'm sure everyone has.

    But Urban just nailed McCoy. I'd say the first movie captured the spirit of Trek and the essence of most of the characters, but only Karl SOLD me on his. He was Bones from the first time he opened his mouth to almost throw up. I hope he gets a bit more screen time this go round.

    I'm very likely wrong but one of the trailers has a quick shot of what looks like a cargo bay full of cryo chambers with people in them. I wonder if we are going to see some version of a Khan and his 'family' being the villian(s) in this one after all.

    To me it makes sence its Kahn and he returned to earth and has been getting into the ranks of the Federation etc etc

    Also during the 15min or whatever the extended clip is we see people taking their sick kid to some place for a desperate maybe law breaking medical proceadure to save him- aka genetic manipulation... as much as JJ and others want to be like "oh its not kahn!" its Kahn...untill they announce it offically...its Kahn... and if its not Kahn then oh well... but the speculations of who it may be other than Kahn make less sence than Kahn, sans its a100% new villan and not some "linked to old trek" type person.

    It's not Kahn. Empire's latest officially names him "John Harrison". He's a former federation officer turned terrorist.

    That name has been thrown around and really, I am not buying it- it always has quotes " " around the name... and the fact that the latest trailer still didnt directly say who it was. If the "leak" of the name etc was true they would have ditched the whole "keep it secret, keep it safe" on all trailers/interviews etc and just said it already-

    There are no quotations around the name in the magazine. It's got a 7 page article about the movie and references him as Harrison a few times. That being said, it is entirely possible, and likely, that there will be some third-act "reveal" that his name is really Kahn. Article also mentions more relationship stuff between Uhura and Spock, which worries me a bit.

    I don't mind Spock getting some trim, but I'd rather see screentime devoted elsewhere. The first movie had just about enough.

    Perhaps in TOS something had happened that made Spock reject his human side and become the walking stiff we know and love. Wheras here with Vulcan being destroyed and the timeline completely changed that may not happen or simply has not happened yet. Seems... logical.

    With the reboot Spock/Kirk undergo the most changes because their circumstances are altered the most, while the rest of the crew is left cookie cutter enough to keep things recognizable and fun. With Kirk they just took his.. Kirkness.. and turned it up five notches.

    Hell, from what I remember of the pilot, Spock was just a normal guy with elf ears. All the cold logic shit was developed later.

    Up the Kirkness 5 notches, meaning turning him into an action hero retard, which is not what Kirk was, at all.

    I remember reading an interview with Chris Pine where he said that the "Kirkness", at least as far as mannerisms, was way toned down in the second film. I really hadn't thought about the Spock love situation with the new timeline in mind, but that is an interesting way to think about it.

    Shatner himself said Kirk was an action hero, the first of his kind.

    Sure Uhura dug the way he strummed the lute, hey brother; however, it was Chapel who had to change her panties after an eyeful of bowl cut and pointy ear.

    I think it is fair to say that between Kirk and Spock, most of the females aboard the Enterprise were moist 24/7.

    kirk was definitely the action hero. dunno if he was retarded, but he wasnt averse to hamming it up at least once an episode. spock had some chicks going for him too, but he wasnt interested. poontang wasnt logical for him unless it was every seventh year and he had him some battle spears to fight for chicks.

    I took my (ex) girlfriend to see the first one and she is a total "anti-Star Trek, Sci-Fi, geek/nerd, anything" type person and when we walked out of the theater she said "THAT WAS AWESOME!" so basically yeah, there is no excuse for basically anyone to go see the next installment of this.
