Let's see...


Captain America is supposed to be perpetually at the peak of human ability.


Spock, as a Vulcan,  and is supposed to have 3 times the strength of a human in Earth normal gravity.


I'll take Captain Vulcan

Me too.


I like the fact that it is delving more in to Star Trek lore with Captain April, Carol Marcus and more of Pike's history.


I also like that they are actually exploring the consequences of Kirk's promotion rather than just leaving it as is. I think that exploring more of Kirk and Pike's relationship as well as the challenges of command promises for some great character development.

I'll admit that all sounds kind of stupid. I hope this is misdirection or something. Why in the Hell would they screen an entire movie they have been trying to keep under wraps very successfully? It's still 2 months away. Kirk being demoted is stupid. He spent the entire first movie NOT Captain, until the end. Why can't they just have a cool, regular, mission like TOS? Where everybody is where they are supposed to be and acts like it? I can accept the new timeline thing, but this is beginning to look bad. Too much crap going on, and it even looks like The Enterprise is destroyed based on the Super Bowl commercial.


Let JJ go ruin Star Wars and bring new creators into this new Star Trek. Man, I hope those spoilers are totally wrong.

Relax- it will be just fine.


People who don't want to like it won't (op is in this category) and will come up with every reason under the sun not to. It's begun already, and the movie is 2 months from premiering. Others, as with the 2009 film, will kick back and enjoy the fun and excitement.

Meh. I'm not impressed with what's been leaked, but it's all out of context anyway.


Heck, I'm inclined to believe the writers decided to bust Kirk down temporarily because of the apoplectic meltdowns some of the Trekkies had over his rapid promotion in ST09.


Also, I'm a little tired of how Kirk is the Sherlock Holmes to SF's Keystone Cops. First movie, all the seasoned ships and crew were in the Laurentian System leaving cadets and wet behind the ears lower officers to defeat a genocidal madman. Second movie, hurr durr (if the leaks are to be believed) senior officers gather together as a convenient target for another murderous madman. Both times only Kirk "sees" what's really going on. Yeah, we get it, he's AWESOMESAUCE McSUPEROUS. Or maybe SF needs to offer basic and advanced lessons learned, enemy strategy 101, basic safety and operations and contingency planning courses. Might help. lol


Looking forward to the movie, regardless.

I predict a very good movie - but not a star trek movie. And I don't think we'll see a real one till it's a follow on from a new TV series. TV is Star Trek's bread and butter, these current films just use star trek as an excuse to make a cool sci-fi action movie

Someone really needs to define for me a proper "Star Trek" movie...


Personally, I think the sequel will show more of Starfleet's foibles, similar to Deep Space 9 and the reaction to the Dominion War on Earth, as well as the complexities of the characters.

We've seen all done before in Star wars and other films, Jj abrams has nothing left to give us except his distorted version.


Sadly this movie will not bring in the numbers of the first film, I predict a good first week, then it's down hill from there.
