Trekmovie also has a shot of the USS Kelvin blowing up--or at least in real bad shape. JoBlo.com has a shot of the villian "Nero". Aintitcool.com has a shot of Zachary Quinto choking curt. He almost looks like he has a little bit of Sylar in his eyes...could someone's head be coming off? This Friday "Entertainment Weekly" will have Pine and Quinto on the cover all Treked out. Online they have a shot of the Kelvin before it blows up along with an article that includes a small spoiler or two (nothing that hasn't been on the web already though).
Yesterday I saw a film that does not get released until next summer. I can’t say much more than that, except that it delivers all the goods sorely lacking from a certain trio of prequels. Exciting stuff. That is all.
Now I like continuity and the canon as much as the next guy. I don't want to see Abrams and company blow the canon out of the water and disrespect everything Trek stands for. But I don't want to see them make a mockery of the rich history of Trek either by (1) making everything new still look 60s-ish for big screen 2009 cinema or (2) throwing out everyting for a straight full-on reboot. From all I've read, they aren't doing any of that. These approaches do not do Trek justice for today. The bottom line: I don't want to see a Trek "prequel" flop like a SW Episode 1...but from what I've read online, it won't. As a Trek geek I saw to fellow Trek geek: live a little. Enjoy 2009's vision of the Trek future with the characters we all love.
I believe this post constitutes my "occasionally some Star Trek". Thanks for sticking with it.
