Star Trek Into Trailerness

The JJ Abrams Star Trek movie was alright! So the sequel due out later this year, starring Benedict Cumberbund as maybe-Kahn or maybe Some Other Guy, will probably be alright too! I know, I know, another controversial opinion about consumer entertainment products, eh?

There will also be a Star Trek game, and that probably won't be alright, because licensed games so rarely are. But it's got Sylar's face in it, and Vulcan nerve pinches, and some spaceship corridors that look a bit like The Normandy, so maybe I'll be proven ULTRO-WRONG.

Here's lots of noise, an inappropriate soundtrack, a bunch of lizardy things and a Vulcan nerve pinch takedown:

I watched that and I felt nothing. No negativity, no positivity: just numbness, a blank lack of response. But enough about my morphine habit.

Star Trek: The Game is developed by Digital Extremes and willl be out in late April, shortly before Star Trek Into Doncaster or whatever it's called arrives in the box office. I wish they'd make an HD version of Star Trek: 25th Anniversary instead:

"You've retrieved a sample of berries." Yeah, dawg.
