Adam, you lucky bastard.
Thanks for the rundown of the happenings. I hadn't seen all of the images. Amazing how much work goes into real life sets.
Looking forward to it!

Trailers always fudge things. It is part of their role. Minimise some things, and blow up others...

I love this inside look into the next film. I'm a little sad that Abrams has moved on to "bigger" things, but I'm hopeful for the next installment. Sometimes a franchise needs new blood.

Where was Zoe!

Jo said...

I guess I will get to see it eventually. I am looking forward to it though. I can't imagine some of the characters being played by others though.

Jeffrey Scott said...

No matter what anyone else says, it'll be an enjoyable film. I'm still a little upset began two films ago as a reboot, but at least the way they did it made sense to me. Being an alternate reality of sorts.
I can't wait!

It doesn't really matter--just say the words "Star Trek", and we will be there.
