New 'Star Trek' trailer: Fan treasure or fan outrage?

Posted on

The question for me, after seeing this trailer in front of Quantum of Solace, is: What are the faithful gonna say? I sat next to a dude who said “They’re doing this to these fans!?” No one is more adherent to continuity than Trekkers/Trekkies, no one is more mindful of every iota of their characters’ history. I’m one of those fans — and I kinda loved it. Sure, I don’t buy a kid of 13 or so introducing himself with the full, official “James Tiberius Kirk,” but lots of stuff blew up good, Zachary Quinto looks and sounds as awesome as we thought he would as Spock, and Uhura took her top off. More happened in these 90 seconds than happened in all of Star Trek: Nemesis.

It could absolutely still suck, but it’s promising. And, again, Uhura took her top off. If that’s not an upside to a reboot, then I don’t know what is. What do you think?
