If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

So...I normally avoid trailers, but I got a wibbly-wobbly hinting of goose bumps, and decided to see it. I too have goose bumps now, I think.

WOW!!!

JJ Abrams rocks! This looks to be /good/.

I agree -- awesome trailer! This one begins to convey the "mythic proportion" that Star Trek has now attained.

Interesting note as to how the writers have justified their rebooting of Star Trek. This article (including spoilers, if that concerns you) addresses the new Star Trek movie in terms of adherence to, or departure from, Star Trek canon. From an abstract about the writer interview:
quote:
["Star Trek" co-writer] Orci has revealed that the film takes place within an alternate timeline. He stated that any canon changes made in this timeline will not affect the former timeline, arguing that the scientific theory of quantum mechanics permits the existence of parallel timelines and parallel universes. He also believes that this theory allows for the continuance of a timeline even after a change is affected and an alternate timeline is created. In addition, he argues that, although the timeline has changed, the true nature of the characters does not change and that Kirk and company are the same people they are in the original timeline.
Apparently the quantum mechanics reasoning behind all this (which was actually posited by Data in "Star Trek: TNG") makes the new movie completely justifiable and compatible with all the Star Trek series and movies thus far. Essentially it's the same characters we knew and loved in the Original Series, but tells the story of "what would have happened" as a result of an event (involving a time-traveling Nimoy-Spock) which creates an alternate timeline. That's why Nero says in the trailer "James T. Kirk was a great man...but that was another life." (I love time travel storylines!)

Can't wait for May 8th...
