I don't mind it being mainstream. I rather like it, actually.

The Japanese version of that trailer has an extra bit on the end. You can see it here http://www.forbes.com/sites/markhughes/ ... -darkness/

All I will say is if this film is a rehash of Khan I will not be seeing it at all.

In the movie universe, does Kirk have a brother?

I've heard that that kid he passes in the car in the beginning is supposed to be his brother, but I don't know if it's canon or not.

The trailer looks.....meh!

Now I don't think that means the movie has to be bad, since we pretty much see only explosions and action scenes and as good as nothing from the story, but I don't know......seems forgettable to me.

I guess the success of the movie depends entirly on how much the rehashed and if they even bothered to come up with something new storywise. If it is indeed a variation of Khan...I am not really interested.

You rebooted the universe to free yourself of the shackles of 40+ years of canon. Then come up with something new, but that is just my humble opinion.

I'm actually not too bothered by the underwater space ship, is there really that much difference between airtight/space-proof and airtight/water-proof?

Besides didn't the Delta Flyer survive the Space Ocean with minor modifications?

My issue is more that it looks like the E crashes into a lake or something... which would probably cause massive stress on that neck.

Looks cool though.

I doubt it's more than the few thousand g of acceleration (assuming she can match the E-nil) it has to withstand as the impulse engines (in the saucer) have to tow the rest of the ship.
Only two things are infinite - the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the universe: Albert Einstein.

I would have thought that a ship that can take the kinds of stresses associated with accelerating to fractional light speeds in seconds would laugh at pulling a few gees. Maybe those strengths are accomplished through structural integrity fields and whatnot in space... but I see no reason why those couldn't work on the ground, too.

I don't know. Every time we have seen a ship collision, the SIF has not been able to handle it.
