Trailer Probe : Star Trek

November 17, 2008

Movies of geekity interest should be only two minutes long, because trailers for those movies make us laugh. They make us cry. They work so hard to make us happy.

Trailer Probe rates the geek explosion content, how much our cortex is combusted with a volley of geekitude, and dork disengagement level is reasons you won't dig it.

Star Trek

Dork disengagement level: Kid Kirk?

Kid Spock?

Hey! This space battle looks like every other space battle.

Where is Nimoy? I was told there would be Nimoy.

Everybody else looks like Star Trek characters, but Hot Young Kirk just looks like some guy.

Since when is there sex in Star Trek? This obviously flies in the face of TNG episode 34, segment 2, paragraph 4.

For a thing called Star Trek this trailer spends a lot of time not in the stars or on a trek.

Geek explosion content: WHOO. There, I said it.

They said Tiberius!

Eric Bana survived the Hulk movie.

Scotty and McCoy get the best lines.

Sylar in the Spock suit talks some trash, then proceeds to stomp a mudhole in Kirk. I guess we must wait for the whole movie to see if he also walks it dry.

The transporter sound effect and the old-timey Trek logo are just delightful.

Geek explosion level: 900,000 geek parts. That's good trailer.
