We would be betraying our natures if The Flaming Nose didn't post this brand-spanking new trailer for the upcoming J.J. Abrams Star Trek movie -- we're huge fans of everything Star Trek and can't wait for it!
Wow! Boy, do we hope it's great! Though we all grew on up Star Trek: The Original Series and every other one since then, we're always up for a new adventure with the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise!
For more on the movie also worth reading, though only if taken with a huge grain of salt, is Entertainment Weekly's recent article on the new movie. They tried a little too hard to hammer the nail into the Star Trek franchise coffin, with descriptions like "retro sci-fi cheese" and "near-irrelevant cultural joke" and "defunct old property" strewn throughout the article. All right, already...so a series spawned forty years ago needed a juice-up, duh! When you consider the total number of hours of programming which emerged from Roddenberry's vision, Trek is the most vital science fiction property ever. Why didn't EW just go ahead and kick Shakespeare in the nuts while they were pummelling Star Trek -- he's a little dusty, too!
But I digress! We're here to love on the new Star Trek trailer. It's beautiful! We can't wait until May 2009!
