To me JJ's films are just exploitative popcorn movies designed to rake in as much cash as possible and using the Star Trek IP as a wrapper. I hope I'm wrong, but even the poster picture looks more like Batman than Picard.
Yeah ... I enjoyed the first one, but this one feels like he has completely derailed the concept that is Star Trek.

When it comes down to it ... He might just make Star Trek Online look like the true Trek power and storyline when its all over.

Agreed - so far as I am concerned the trailer is, as the movie will be, gold plated crap.

If you do the research, you'll know that he DOES have a general knowledge of ST, but prefered Star Wars as a child They needed a new take on the franschise for the general audience, ie not made specifically for ST fans. What better way to get that than from him?

You probably won't like it, but that is the perspective about this whole thing: He knows what ST was about, and he's making sure this new Trek isn't like it, because that's the point. It has ST's name, and it's characters, but that's about it in similarities. But rather than focus on comparsions, I'll personally enjoy it on it's own merits, as a standalone alternate version of ST

And on this thread's note, definitely liked the trailer (though the woman with blond hair's acting could have been shot better), and am excited for it. Villian sounds like Khan in wording, but looks like Gary Mitchell... hmm, will have to see about that.
Was named Trek17, but still an author.

Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'.

So basically selling out the ST IP to appeal to a new dumbed down audience. Where are the real stories, why does everything have to be about an explosion every two minutes, if I want explosions I'll go watch Mythbusters. JJ should watch some of the TNG shows, Q Who was right up there along with episodes exploring the human condition such as The Inner Light, what it means to be sentient with The Measure Of A Man, these are some of the great stories that catapult Star Trek far beyond Star Wars and films of a similar ilk,

Roddenberry had a vision all right, the fact we are discussing this 50 years after that vision was first put to paper confirms that. It's up to us the real fans to ensure that his vision is not corrupted and violated in the endless search for $$$.

The more important question is, who is the Blonde? The more I look at her, the more I think it's Elizabeth Dehner. http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Elizabeth_Dehner but doesn't she die in JJ's Where No Man Has Gone Before? I still think this guy moves like an augment though.

Perhaps it's Khan Mitchell, genetically engineered cross breed of Khan and Gary Mitchell?
