Default New Star Trek Movie: Story Theories

I just watched the latest movie trailer http://www.startrekmovie.com/ and I have a new theory.

I believe that a Romulan goes back in time and kills James T. Kirk shortly after his son is born. Old TOS is wiped clean. His son then grows up to become the new James Kirk of the altered future.

The trailer is probably going to turn out to be better than the actual movie, but I will give JJ Abrams my $10.00. I think since they might be going out of their way to explain why his star trek is different from TOS might save the day. If the past is altered by a crazy half human half romulan dirt bag, then the future is erased and replaced by a new future, one that they, JJ Abrams and company, are free to explore without the constraints of TOS, STNG, DS9, Voy, and Ent.

Either way, I look forward to seeing a new star trek movie.

And the re imagined Enterprise isn't all that bad looking.

Actually those images are not the Enterprise from the upcoming movie. It's someone (www.gabekoerner.com) else's good take on a re-imagined Enterprise though. :P

There's a real image here:

Ya the error has been brought to my attention. That is one ugly new Enterprise. WTF were they thinking? I get the whole history has been altered/clean slate idea that JJ is going for. I just don't like the new Kirk that much. Takes command of the Enterprise when there are dozens of officers above him.... I don't buy it at all. But there ya go, Bobs my uncle.

Personally, I think the "new" Star Trek is going to end up doing one seriously ugly face-plant!!!

Which sucks major-league, because I'm a HUGE Star Trek fan and had seriously high hopes for this movie.

now now... look at the tv show Enterprise with Scott Bakula as captain

the NX-01 ship looked better then the old show and I liked it

but look at what they had to work with then and compared to todays tech and computer graphics (and what teens look for in movies) I think it will be a big hit at the boxoffice and hopefully start a new tv show

Does this mean that the "New Kirk" will be doing 'priceline negotiations' commericals to explore new worlds and go where no man has gone before?

It looks like a lot of the early reviews are highly positive...

A side note, Gabe Koerner appeared in the film Trekkies and worked as a CGI artist on Battlestar Galactica.


As for this trek, some of the clips look good, but I have a sneaking feeling that the characters we are familar with are being replaced with cardboard cutout imitations
