Star Trek XI Teaser Online!

Also: Abrams doesn't realize "no overacting" and "classic Trek" are mutually exclusive.

J.J. Abrams is no dummy. With the future of the Star Trek film franchise hinging on his fresh-faced reboot, the Cloverfield producer knew the best time to debut Star Trek XI‘s first teaser would be the date he’d been mercilessly drilling into moviegoers’ brains for months: 1-18-08.

To that end, Cloverfield viewers were treated to the Trek teaser over the weekend — but if you weren’t one of the millions who flocked to theaters to see a headless Statue of Liberty, don’t fret: Along with the official Trek XI site, the teaser has surfaced online for all to see.

It’s a teaser, so the less you go in expecting, the more you’ll probably enjoy it; that being said, these few seconds of footage definitely make the most of themselves. And while you’re at the Trek site, you may wish to follow the instructions laid out by ComingSoon:

In addition to the new trailer coming online in High Definition quality, the official website has added a red blinking light to the right of the words “UNDER CONSTRUCTION,” which, if clicked on, takes you to a new viral site with the URL It features four cameras of the shipyard which you can bring into focus by changing the frequency.

UPDATE #2: If you let the page sit long enough, the “offline” camera on the page will show a corridor for just a second!

Meanwhile, over at Entertainment Weekly, Abrams shared a few Trek tidbits, promising there will be no Shatner-style ham from new Kirk Chris Pine, and saying the new film hearkens back to ”classic Trek — as much social commentary as it is optimistic sci-fi…[it’s] both dramatic and funny.”
