    Looks like the Enterprise is going to get super beat up/destroyed again possibly. Wish they'd get over that, it's been done to death.

    However, the movie does look pretty friggin awesome.

    That is seriously the first time I have ever found three words threatening. "You are not". Awesome trailer. May 17th cannot get here soon enough. I wonder if the whole "who's he playing" will be resolved/revealed before that day. Whomever he is playing, it looks to be VERY good.

    I saw a 10 minute trailer for this before the Hobbit in IMAX and I'm looking forward to seeing this. Looked pretty intense.

    It sounds like Kirk's ego is writing checks his body can't cash!

    I doubt it'll be destroyed out right, but getting damaged is the name of the game in Trek. A movie can dedicate more time to damaging a Federation ship, than a television series that has to recycle footage to keep cost down. Hence the damage to the Enterprise, the Enterprise-A, the Enterprise-D and the Enterprise-E.

    In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek Into Darkness.

    Different strokes for different folks. I always thought the threat of getting the ship beat up/destroyed was always more meaningful than actually watching it take a beating. Plus, in general I think beating up the Enterprise has become a worn out trick. It worked in Wrath of Khan because to my knowledge we never really saw the Enterprise get its teeth kicked in like that before, Search for Spock actually had the ship being destroyed which was a new thing, Star Trek 6 was forgivable because they were up against a prototype ship. Watching the Ent-D get jobbed in Generations was just stupid. The Ent-E getting beat up by the Sona just didn't make sense to me. And in Nemesis they just went way too over the top with it all.

    Oh, I wasn't arguing it's a bad thing. Just making a silly Top Gun reference.

    Ha! When I read this title for a moment I thought it meant that Star Trek was going to have a Teaser for Lars Von Trier's Melancholia. That would have been a great fit.
    ...And does Mr. Goddanm Batman says so much as ''Thanks''? OF COURSE not. That'd hardly be GRIM AND GRITTY, would it?
