We've seen the teaser trailer, had a look at the newly-cast crew, and even seen the newly-revised Enterprise NCC-1701.

Now, having aired alongside Quantum of Solace in the U.S, we can finally set our sights upon trailer number two - which provides the best look yet at J.J. Abrams' take on the Star Trek universe.

The trailer is embedded below or viewable in high definition on Apple.com.

There's a whole lot crammed into the two-minute trailer, but the overall opinion is mixed. Abrams is clearly taking Star Trek in a new direction, but is he boldly going too far? Some of the action sequences in particular, although very dashing in terms of visuals, look almost as brightly coloured as something from...dare we say it...Star Wars.

Nevertheless, there's a lot there to wet our taste buds, too. Sink your teeth in, and share your thoughts in the HEXUS.community forums.

it looks very good but like you said, it does resemble alot of star wars bling in it which i dont like
Wow. Might have Star Wars ‘bling’ but I think that is what Trek lacked. It looks really good. I am willing to go into this with an open mind and enjoy it.

I do think though this is going to open up the way for Star Trek remakes.
Hopefully this will be the reboot the franchise needs. Fingers crossed :)
It's definitely one of those…

Wanting to look at the huge amount of detail in some of those frames.
It does look gorgeous.

As for the Star Wars comparisons…… do you mean that every 6 months (post release) JJ Abrams is going to release another point release, fitting some more ‘comedy’ CGI creatures into the background, slipping on some alien poop, and shoe-horn in an extra storyline about a skull made of crystal etc, until every single frame of every scene is filled with things he “always wanted to do but didnt have the technology originally”.
Because i'd like it if he did. I really, really would.
Really, honestly.


Not.
