    It's obviously the NX-01 rising from the water, it's in fact a giant spaceship wash and not the sea.

    Yeah, they couldn't do it in the original series due to a tight budget, but it's mentioned a few times, most notably in 2x06 "The Apple", when a hull seperation is mentioned but only in case of an extreme emergency. Back then the saucer would explode away from the star drivesection.

    So that's her name :) Cheers, I was wondering when I saw her in the trailer. She's lovely.

    Poor teaser IMO, makes it look like a disaster picture!

    So that ship coming out of the sea is the Enterprise; it also happens at the start of the film as people have seen the 9 minute preview. You also don't find out the name of the villain - boo!

    Janeway is always banging on about them.

    They're a bit like oranges, hard to rhyme in a song.

    mini review of the IMAX footage

    Also about the scene in the end of the Japanese trailer, apparently that's Cumberbatch's hand, not Kirk's which you see in the trailer we'll get this weekend.

    More Here about the 9 minutes.

    Good to hear it retains its sense of fun. That teaser implied anything but!

    The new Star Trek movies left the SF genre and do it more Science Fantasy style, similar to Star Wars. A path they already started with the TNG movies (but the crew really wasn't casted for that). Haven't seen a good SFiction movie recently, I guess it's not en vogue right now.

    Looking forward to a good SFantasy-action movie in 2013.

    Looper and Prometheus were both sci-fi mind.

    Yeah.........no. The closest they strayed to that is when they searched for god and even that turned out to be

    I likeed Looper but not because of the SF time-travel aspect which I have yet to think about in depth (although Bruce whammmmin on the table with his fist and telling me not to do it).

    I found the characters interesting and quite believable and the slight classic SF touch on the subject of self-sacrifice and all that quite nice.
    Although I can't relate to his final act.

    Prometheus - oh well - I found the character to be absolutely unbelievable.
    Best part: "Oh look at that alien snake thing which is behaving like a python, let's try and touch that little fella!" - that dude should have died at the age of 8 running in the front of a car, thinking it's going to magically not kill him. They obviously don't have cars in the future, that would explain it.

    Lots of potential SF goodness wasted.
    Visually it's ace though.

    We also get enough humor (particularly from Simon Pegg) that manages to make light of exactly the kind of fan over-analysis that the film is sure to generate
    Ugh. Do not want anymore Pegg.

    Whereas I find Stargate childish and cheap. Star Trek post DS9 boring, plodding with dull characters and annoying neelix crap. To me, JJ at least gave Trek a kick up the arse, it was dead in the water. Dull and with far too much boring talk about warp cells degrading due to the atmospheric pressure of Tuvoks farts or something equally naff.

    Prometheus did have dull cardboard cut out characters, no doubt, but no worse than TNG.

    See, I'd say myself and you are at polar opposites of what we want from sci-fi. I personally want grit, intelligence, and mystery. I don't want to be talked to death by a starship engineer, nor do I want to watch people running around with P90s shooting pew pews at fellas in dresses in the place where they shoot I'm a celebrity.

    Turns out, sci-fi is too hard to please everyone.
