Cat got your tongue? Relax, they're deliberatly withholding information, that's why it's a teaser. A crazy theory that's floating around now is that Harrison is actually an adaptation of Robert April, a captain from the first pilot of TOS, and some of the Trek novels.

They've got an actor named Gatt playing an android/cyborg called "GATT2000"? Does he say "beep, boop" and "Danger! Danger, James Kirk!"?

Its things like this that make me think they picked Abrams for these movies not because of his directorial talents but for his viral marketing/misinformation talents.

A classic, HAL 9000, it´s a tribute obviously.

Anyone see the 9 minute preview on IMAX screenings of the Hobbit? Looks absolutely fantastic, further reinforcing in my mind that Cumberbatch is Khan.

I saw a bootlegged copy on Youtube. I'm not sure why you'd think BC is Khan, considering 1.) his character's name is John Harrison, and 2.) nothing he did in that trailer gave any indication that he's Khan.

"A film made in 2008 isn't going to look like a TV series from 1966 if it wants to make any money. As long as the characters act the same way, and the spirit of the story remains the same then it's "real" Star Trek. Everything else is window dressing." -StCoop

1.) John Harrison is merely a cover name IMO. Much like how Liam Neeson and Marion Coitillard were Ras and Talia al Gul respectively despite being named different.

*****SPOILERS******

2.) I felt that BC offering aid to this random family's daughter might be a ploy to turn more people on toward genetic engineering. Perhaps the father is some important person within the Federation? Plus the super strength displayed and the thirst for vengence points to Khan for me. In the end it's all smoke and mirrors with JJ and crew until the actual movie comes out.

Ah ha!

Well there's a second trailer out and also the film info on www.imdb.com states Alice Eve to be Dr. Carol Marcus.

Curiouser and curiouser...

Just because we see Carol Marcus doesn't mean that BC is Khan.

Actually, if you go to trekmovie, in the screencap section on the second trailer, they´ve blown-up the cap of the cryosection tubes on the two persons leaving the bay. The one on the right, the large chap apparently has a ponytail. Perhaps that´s Khan, and John Harrison is one of those in the boxes? Perhaps all his followers didn´t join him on the Botany Bay?

Just seen an interview video and BC states his character is referred to as "Harrison". He also refers to him as a "home grown terrorist". Hmm.

I didn't like BC...though I have the feeling that I might like him in this film.

I don't think it's a Klingon ship...although if it is, it's a small one - like a shuttle (which I think it's chasing or one of those fighters that flies overhead earlier in the trailer).

Cryo tanks...yeah...don't think it's Khan though...but I have been known to be wrong. [Roll Eyes]
