Okay, the theme made me take notice, and seeing the word 'Enterprise' across a hull always thrills me- but I still don't like the revisionism. I plan to hate it, yet I will see it- that seem right to you?

Actually, producer Damon Lindelof has called the film a "re-invigoration" and "re-vitalization. However, it is not a reboot and is within canon.

You're memory is wrong. It has never been said that the Enterprise was constructed in space. In fact, according to the Enterprise's dedication plaque, the ship was built at the "San Francisco Yards."

That the ship was built in space, is simply something that a lot of fans have assumed...without any evidence.

Abrams and the producers have confirmed that the film's within the continuity of the rest of the franchise. From what I gather, the movie, however will have a different tone/mood from any previous Star Trek film...at least that's what I think.

As usual, I mostly agree with chrisisall. I will of course be seeing it, but I plan to hate it, though perhaps for entirely different reasons.

Did they not learn anything from the Star Wars prequels??? I WANT MY VOYAGER MOVIE!

It's a good teaser done in the right way for getting people interested. If you see this in a cinema it has the slow reveal of what they are building. Hardcore fans getting it first, general fans later, and then with the music and the words Enterprise, everyone else falls in line.

At the moment I kind of feel about this how I did about early Indy 4 stuff. Wishing they'd leave it alone, hoping they don't screw it up, but still with a tingling of anticaption that it might actually be good.
Now I'm looking forward to Indy 4 but still cautious and I can see my feelings changing towards ST in a similar way. And I was always more of a fan of the movies than the TV shows (TOS excluded), and I own all the movies, but only one season (DS9 7) on DVD.

I too will be there on opening night. It's just one of those movies you have to see on the big screen.

That "Area 51" story was false. Expect to hear a lot of BS and speculation about this movie, but take it all with a grain of salt.

I'm more excited about Paramount going back to TOS for this movie, than a Voyager movie. Voyager was never good Star Trek, and wasn't worthy of a feature length film. DS-9, yeah, but Voyager?

I'd given some thought to movin' off the edge -- not an ideal location -- thinkin' a place in the middle.

I love the original series even though I feel it doesn't hold up as well after all these years. Sorta like the folks who watched it the first time around huh? I think it's a good idea to reinvigorate the franchise. Prequels can be done well. The Star Wars prequels didn't fail for what they were more so than for who directed and wrote them. If done properly they could have worked. I think they got a (mostly) well picked cast and a good crew so I'm optimistically hopeful. I like Quinto as Spock though I agree he's a bit short and I'm wondering about his voice. If he tries too hard to sound like Leonard Nimoy he might ruin the entire film, yet the opposite could happen as well.

Anyway I think it's going to be a good movie. I also KNOW Trek fans will be bitch'n and screaming for years and years.... Sorry folks it got too mainstream and they are going to try to make it watchable to the other carbon units inhabiting this little rock. I'm not really a Trekkie.. honest.

Oh well I'm off to watch the 1:00 showing of Cloverfield. I'm looking forward to the trailers.

I've been a fan for decades and look eagerly ahead to the new film...

... I also expect the skeptics to slam it unendingly like they did when TNG was being created. In the end, TNG was popular touting a fanbase of 40 million + at the peak of its ratings.

JJ is gonna do a fine job, imo, despite what everyone says. So, the one thing I know I can count on is Trek fans complaining until its release.

I'm going in with an open mind and will either love or hate it AFTER it hits the theaters.

I'm a somewhat unconcerned fan. I guess my love of a handful of episodes make me a Novice Trekkie. Overall though I've never been obsessed or enamored with the franchise much. Either way I don't identify myself as a Trekkie and never really wanted to be.

I'm a Browncoat all the way. Nothing else will ever overshadow that.

Having been there to see the original I am going to have a hard time seeing others cast in these so familiar roles. I will see it. I should give it a chance.

As for where the ship was built. I suspect the various sections were built on the ground and then final assembly was done in space. Like our space lab. If the entire ship were assembled on the ground than that would mean it was always capable of landing and it never did. The only ship I ever saw with that capacity to land was Voyager.

According to the DS9 technical manuals, the Defiant-class also had planetfall capabilities (well, it had landing gear).

And it's likely that the teaser imagery won't be in the movie (not 'cause of the on-planet construction, but because it's bad luck to paint a ship's name on her before she's finished).

Personally, I was always more of a 24th Century Man (I grew up with TNG), but I'm eager to see this, if only to see how modern visual styles will portray the pre-TOS Enterprise.

Ok at the risk of revealing how much I watch reruns of TNG... doesn't the Enterprise land in least once of the episodes? I may be thinking of the episode of Voyager though. And I don't mean in Generations when it's crashes... Also, didn't the Enterprise enter the atmosphere in one of the TOS movies? I may have just either proved to myself I am a Trekkie or proved to you all how I am totally not.

I'm not a Trekkie...but I am a fan. I'm most familiar with TNG (used to watch it with my dad as a kid) but I also enjoy TOS and Voyager. DS9 is hit and miss for me. That being said, I'm looking forward to this movie. I understand the folks who have issues with the whole thing but it looks well cast and well directed, so I will withhold judgement untill I have actually seen it.

To those here that are wanting to see a VOYAGER movie....wasn't the series finale, End Game good enough? I really love that episode; probably have seen it 20 times. It has everything in it & wrapped up the series in a terrific and surprising manner. I can't think of anything else they could come up with for this crew, except some follow-up on their lives in the new time-line that Janeway created. What would you want to potentially see in a movie?

Aslo.....Those Next Generation cast movies were all pretty good, but wouldn't it have been awesome if they could have built a movie around one of the finest episodes in Trek history...The Inner Light? They could have had Picard go back in time a thousand years & actually meet and live with all the friends and family that he "lived" with during his 25-minute lifetime experience. He could have time travelled in a variety of ways....the warp-breakaway method, the Guardian of Forever method, or the Bajoran orb method.

The landing you speak of was on Voyager- Enterprise entered atmo in Naked Time, Tomorrow Is Yesterday, and more fatal-y in ST3.

Hey Jungsstraw:

That was my favorite episode. With Picard living a whole other life. That was well written.
I suspect they will never bring back any of the original casts for a Trek movie after this movie.

Hi Traveller

The Inner Light used to be consistently voted by ST:NG fans as the #1 episode, at least by fans in So. Florida who would vote when the local channel used to air the re-runs regularly & they would put on Marathons. I really do love that episode more than I can describe, because for me it's very personal. I usually feel like an "outsider" or a "stranger in a strange land" much as Picard/Kaman felt when he first arrived.

Also my favorite episode. I still get that tune in my head from time to time and it takes me a second or so to place it. Music always makes a larger impression on me that anything else and I rarely forget any sort of tune or theme from a series. I really wasn't aware that the more hardcore fans also loved that episode as much as I do.

ALSO.... You can download the trailer in HD from here. I find this a lot more conveinient since I always have problems getting stuff to load on YouTube.

As a Florida native I remember several fan voted marathons featuring that episode and I also like it, although I wouldn't call it my favorite.

As for a Voyager movie, I think they could go numerous places with it, as I have a fair amount of ideas of my own. I also think a TNG Voyager crossover movie would be great, or maybe a series about the USS Titan, Riker's new ship that according to several books Tuvok is the first officer of.

Hey, now. I was one of the 4.3 million fans that actually enjoyed STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE. But this doesn't surprise me. Only a fraction of the Trek fanbase gave it a chance, not even after Manny Coto took the helm in Season 4. If they had only allowed him to continue through the now absent Seasons 5,6 & 7, people would have realized how great a series it truly was... or could have been.

I stuck with it thru season 2, but after the enemy mine ripoff episode, I had to call it quits. That was at least the third or fourth (or more) plotline that was clearly the exact same one from another movie or television show. And then there were the ones that seemed to revolve around getting the vulcan chick sweaty and nearly naked. Too wierd. I liked it ok, but all that got old real fast, and I stopped. I had no idea it went on for that many seasons, either.

I'm hoping the new trek can maybe revitalize Star Trek. Not so much because I so dearly miss it (I WAS a major Trekkie in my day, but I'm a tried and true Browncoat now) but because I want more Sci Fi. Movies, TV, anything, new, remade, whatever I can get :) bonus for that: if they make lots of it, it's more likely some of it will be Firefly - or at least made by Joss :)

Same reason I'm really looking forward to this film. I think the Trek franchise has a lot to offer that it hasn't put out there yet.

I'm a bit more neutral on the topic of Enterprise. I really didn't care much for the first two or three seasons. Some episodes were ok but it was a little dry and like most Trek series they ripped themselves off a bit. Even TNG did this at first. Though not as often. It's hard when doing a series that is a continuation of the style of a previous series to not do something more than once. Enterprise did have more than a few original episodes(well at least not rip offs of TOS, TNG and Voy... I never watched all of DS9)

Either way I'll be in the theaters on Christmas day with my family... or at least the day after with my dad and maybe another family member.

No worries. It is true that some episodes ripped from other Trek series stories, but I blame that entirely on a tired and creatively exhausted Berman & Braga trying to recapture the success of TNG. Several epi's were downright awesome though, but I guess the one's that caught everyone's eyes were the rip-offs.

Y'all should give at least Season 4 a chance. Coto's work was pure TOS-tie-in joy to me at times. Not ALL the epi's, but a good amount that I've come to regard it as some of the best ENT stories hands down. Much better character development that season. If any of you DO offer up to take a watch, just disregard the finale (These Are The Voyages, written by Berman & Braga) and the Season 4 opener (another Berman & Braga script -- ala, WWII TOS-styled rip).
