I'd seen this over the past few days on dark, blurred bootleg copies out on the internet. But this one is nice and clear.
Clear enough to see what I presume is the original U.S.S. Enterprise under construction, the original NCC-1701. As Captain Montgomery Scott would say, "NCC-1701. No bloody A, B, C, or D."
This installment in the Star Trek series is a prequel movie to ALL of them, even the original series of the late 1960s. Scheduled for release on May 8, 2009, this movie takes place when the characters in the original series were youngsters, at Starfleet Academy and before.
The trailer opens with a scene of young James T. Kirk driving an ancient muscle car over a cliff.
Didn't Jim Kirk grow up in Iowa? I didn't know they had canyons like that in Iowa.
If you're not a Trekker, this has bored you I'm sure. But if you are a Trekker--especially one going back to watching TOS on prime time TV as I am--then you're probably pretty jazzed about the upcoming movie.
Daily Mail: The trailer starts with a speeding Corvette going through the desert being pursued by a mysterious driver on a hovering motorbike contraption. The car goes flying off the side of a canyon, leaving the young driver - too young to have a license - hanging off the side, clinging on for dear life. The pursuing driver, who appears to be a robot, steps off his bike and asks the youngster: 'What is your name?' The brazen boy replies: 'My name is James Tiberius Kirk.'
