Star Trek XI teaser trailer beams onto web

Enterprise: The Early Years

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

A teaser trailer for much-anticipated new Star Trek film has finally found its way onto the web.

Directed by JJ Abrams - the man behind Lost and more recently, the mysterious and virally marketed Cloverfield - Star Trek XI will detail the early days of James T Kirk and his crew and will chronologically sit after the TV series Enterprise, starring Scott "oh boy" Bakula.

Due for release in December of this year, the cast includes Winona Ryder as a young Spock's human mum, the little-known Chris Pine as James T Kirk and Simon Pegg to play the young Engineer Montgomery Scott.

As the trailer begins, the camera slowly pans over the USS Enterprise NCC-1701 under construction in the ship yards of San Francisco. We get some idea of the size of the Constitution Class starship as workers slowly, piece by piece, put her together. It's a much more modern representation than the glossy days of The Motion Picture.

"The future begins" flashes on screen as the weathered and wise-sounding voice of Leonard Nimoy explains to us that space, is the final frontier.

Just as we Trekkies start salivating... and for a moment we forget that Simon Pegg couldn't even do an authentic American accent in Band of Brothers so how on Earth is he going to take on a thick Lowland Scottish accent... the screen fades to black and the words "Under Construction" appears.

JJ Abrams gives us just enough to whet our appetites, just as he has shown he has a skill for.

We at The Register are seriously considering giving Mr Abrams the benefit of the doubt on some of his casting choices, based on this 15-second snippet alone. And that's praise indeed. ®
