Behold…The New Star Trek Poster

Published 6 years ago by

From the sounds of it, don’t expect to see damn near anything regarding J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek reboot/prequel at this year’s San Diego Comic Con.

But this will certainly do…for now.

Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive first look at the posters that will handed out to attendees next week at the Con.

All I have to say is I’m really looking forward to seeing if Abrams & Co. can pull this off.

Star Trek will beam into theatres on May 8, 2009.

  1. Time Travel is a big part of Trek,,,,, ;-)

  2. Don’t lump TOS in with the other series. How many times did TOS use time travel? 3 in the series I think and once in the movies.

    Sure there have been many great episodes that did not use time travel. How many of the episodes that used time travel are bad?

    None for TOS. And with a prequel/reboot what better reason to use time travel.

    After this movie, I do agree that it is time – aha! – to put the use of time travel to rest.

  3. Checked IMDb, haven’t kept up much with this since I’m not a dangerously huge Trekkie– but can someone explain why there are so many cast members with the last name Kirk?

    With all this family we could have a romantic comedy..

  4. Just seen a larger version of the poster and Bana’s ear looks intentionally “battle-damaged”, like the tip’s been chewed off or something.

  5. And check the bridge of his nose, that’s not”hooman” either.

  6. One more! The highlights in everyone’s eyes are the shape of the delta Starfleet emblem as well, Nice little touch.

  7. TOS stands alone!!! :-)

    And yeah, one of the most overused phrases starting with Next Generation was “temporal anomaly” followed closely by “spatial anomaly.” :-P

  8. Not to mention anything to do with that pesky deflector dish…

  9. Adding to what 790 said:
    “Time Travel is a big part of Trek,,,,, ”

    Time Travel or the theme of Time is also a huge part of everything JJ Abrams does :)

  10. Hey…What about…

    “He’s dead, Jim” ?

  11. There a lot of Kirks in the movie and there are three Spocks.

  12. I trust JJ Abrams to deliver something pretty special. I think the guy is a top notch talent!

  13. Since I am a huge Trekker, I’m going to try this from memory. The TOS episodes that dealt with time travel are:
    All Our Yesterdays
    Yesterday is Tomorrow
    City on the Edge of Forever (award winner)
    Assignment: Earth

    I don’t include “The Naked Now” even though, technically, it did have time travel in it but it was small.

  14. I don’t know how true this is but I found this on http://stexpanded.wikia.com/wiki/Nero:

    Nero was a Roman emperor on Earth from 54 to 68 CE.

    According to Star Trek: Unity continuity, although appearing human, Nero was in fact a Neronian leader who decided to invade Earth for his own purposes. Instead of using military might, Nero, fascinated by Earth’s Roman culture, decided to make himself Rome’s leader. He left Earth in 68 CE, however, when he beamed away to his ship after an uprising and made it appear that he had killed himself with a knife.

    Nero retreated back to his empire and entered frozen animation to wait for the Neronian armies to build up to a point where he could invade Earth as he had always wanted to. He was killed in mid 2383 when the USS Hawk-A destroyed his mothership.

    Very little is known of Nero’s personality, although he seems to have been a great follower of the arts, including music.

    So this could be the Nero of Roman history, like Flint was the Mozart and Brahms of history. It looks obvious from the picture that Nero is alien, so I don’t know if this is true.

  15. Ya I read something about that too. That’s pretty cool how it ties into Roman History and it explains the names and designs the romulans too…and the fact they are called ROMULANS..ROMANS..ROMULUS it all makes sense now!

  16. Yeah ah…gonna skip this one and wait for the next real Star Trek movie if they ever decide to do something original again. Star Trek’s future lies in it’s future not in a rehashing of stories and characters already done. Paramount seems determined to kill the franchise once and for all.
