Star Trek XI teaser

The long-awaited first images and teaser for the new JJ Abrams' Star Trek movie have been leaked. Although it's only a teaser, the unbelievable rumors that the Enterprise was drastically re-designed for this retelling seem to have been exaggerated.

The image shows the original Enterprise being built on a planet -- not a space dock as seen in the prior movies. That seems to be a minor departure from Gene Roddenberry's vision. He wanted the Enterprise to be a spaceship that would be too unwieldy to be mistaken for any Earth-bound vessel.

Here is a less than clear version of the teaser on YouTube. Although if it is pulled off YouTube, is a good source for tracking the latest leaked Trek media. The trailer is running with Cloverfield which Scott and I plan on seeing this weekend.

Only 341 days until Christmas.
