The New Final FrontIer

The first trailer for JJ Abrams' '09 model of Star Trek made its debut in front of Quantum of Solace this past weekend, and the kind folks at Apple have helpfully posted it online as of a few minutes ago. I'm not gonna lie, it's a darn good trailer. Gives us just enough of the old to let us know this is still Star Trek, and just enough of the new to make it clear that this isn't the Star Trek we've seen before.

I gotta say though, at this point I'd almost prefer if they said outright that this is a ground-up reboot that starts fresh, so that I could look past all the glaring inconsistencies with established Trek arcana that I see here, and stop worrying about how it all "fits." Then again, that might just be my inner obsessive Trekkie rearing his head, and I should probably just poke him with a broom and shove him back in the closet.

Color me cautiously optimistic.
