Just as we calm down from from our very public geek out out the Star Trek preview last Friday we are treated with another new trailer! Lucky us! Check it out HERE.
We know Star Trek loves viral campaigns but who ever spotted the www.areyouthe1701.com website that was written next to the brig in the trailer must have been wearing Geordi’s VISOR because we can’t see it for looking! Nonetheless, we signed up, and you should too!
As you know, we don’t like unauthorised leaks. Our blog doesn’t share leaked photos and when we talk about rumours, it’s usually with a hint of mockery and an advisory note of caution. But when it comes to approved trailers and previews we trust that the information given to us is designed to enhance our experience. Although we do respect that others might prefer not to know, so we try to give spoiler notice at those moments. That moment is here. After the jump we talk about the new trailer…
=^= Slight spoiler warning =^=
I’m not sure whether as fans we are looking for Wrath of Khan links because we have got used to thinking that way. We’re hoping with the invention of a new baddie, they’ll move away from TWOK looking to make their own mark in the Star Trek Universe. But the presence of Carol Marcus and the alleged death of Spock in the first 9 minutes does indicate some similarities. We also noticed the slight TWOK-yness (yes that’s a word now) with this uniform:
Loving the insignia, looks very familiar though.
We have some good hunches about the film though, we’ll share them with you on a Trekkie Girls episode soon but Carole has full blown CumberFever at the moment. Unlike TWOKyness, we can’t take credit for that term.
