STAR TREK teaser is now online

In 1991, I saw the teaser for Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, with narration by Christopher Plummer (who would turn up in the film as the villainous General Chang). To this day it remains, for me anyway, the single greatest bit of promo for a Star Trek movie. And it perfectly encapsulates everything that Star Trek is supposed to be about when the work is at its finest.

Fast-forward to this past Friday, when I went to see Cloverfield - which was created by J.J. Abrams - on opening day. And Paramount wisely decided to attach a teaser for the upcoming Abrams-directed Star Trek movie.

It's not quite as epic as the Star Trek VI teaser... but I'll be darned if I didn't say that this thing gave me shivers while watching it.

If you want to see it (without resorting to watching a crappo-quality bootleg) the Star Trek trailer has been officially released online, and you can watch it in Quicktime too. If you can't wait a few seconds after clicking on the link, here it is on YouTube also...
