Musings of a fandom geek

Sometimes, you’ve just got to say “The laws of time and space? Who gives a smeg?”

“You will experience fear.”

Posted by Michael Warren on March 7, 2009

After someone over on this side of the Atlantic got a little impatient, and put it online a few days ahead of schedule, Paramount officially released the new Star Trek trailer on Friday morning (when they were originally planning to do so on Monday morning). It was a nice thing to wake up to – although it did almost make me late for work as a result of the magnificence.

Yes, I thought it was spectacular. Giving us action, characterisation, emotion and jaw-dropping visuals, it blew the first trailer out of the sky. And it gave us our first looks at a number of things, including [highlight to read] George Kirk, the Enterprise in full, and James T. taking his place at the conn.  I had to go back and watch it through a few times just to process everything. And the music was just right, Two Steps from Hell once again delivering a spine-tingling piece.

I close out with a few of my favourite images and moments…

"Your father was captain of a starship for twelve minutes..."

"Your father was captain of a starship for twelve minutes..."

"We've got no captain, and no first officer to replace him." "Yeah, we do."

"We've got no captain, and no first officer to replace him." "Yeah, we do."

Tell me this didn't give you goosebumps...

Tell me this didn't give you goosebumps...

The angles on some of these shots are like nothing I've seen in Trek before - and that pleases me.

The whole thing has a "blockbuster" feel to it...

    Damn, I was so hoping that awesome music was by Michael Giacchino and would be in the movie! Hopefully music just as good as that really is in the Star Trek movie.
