You're a real loose canon.

Ahhhhhhhhhh, it's a play on words!

Yeah. Very much so. Everyone so excited about the idea they can't see the reality.

Literally have been reading people online saying "Ford looks more emotionally invested than he has in years!" Seriously?

People literally think they can interpret that from this trailer? No hyperbole there.

Not really - probably just some random guy who was up all night to get lucky

i will say it gets better every time i see it, and it's also amazing the power this world -- and that score -- has over the imaginations of people of a certain age who grew up with the Original Trilogy as a large piece of their lives. the films, at their best, made the impossible seem possible, that maybe you could fly through space in an x-wing fighter or move that rock with your thoughts. i would guess that a huge percentage of people age 35 and up who work in movie/TV are there because of the original movies.

i am concerned at how the original cast is going to fit into these movies, and i think the tone is going to be reverential to the original trilogy, i hope not too much. i am looking forward to returning to this world.

Most of the most legit criticism I've seen from the Trekker hardcores centers around the tone of the story. Yes, they bitch about some of the ret-cons (Khan went from presumably an Eastern Sikh to a pale faced Englishman, the Enterprise bridge is now an Apple store, the engineering room is literally a beer facility, Uhura is boning Spock, the Enterprise design itself changed, etc.), but most of what I've seen (the most legit) centers on the core idea of the stories and how they are supposedly straying from Roddenberry principles.

Both have been revenge plots so there is the redundancy criticism unto itself, something already seen many times in the Trek universe. But mostly it's about not enough 'adventure' or exploration of new worlds and too much 'Hollywood', assplosions, with more action than character building and such. Basically, the folks I see lambasting 'Abrams Trek' are pissed about a little of everything, mostly that it's not the same ol', same ol'. And for that, personally, I don't blame Abrams at all.

I am cool with most everything but limey Khan was really stupid and yeah, I think the stories have been a little stupid. But that is to be expected and actually - it doesn't bother me that much. Yeah, popcorn blockbusters might not be intellectually stimulating, even Trek, and that's cool with me. The alternative is that there are no more Trek films. There's a reason it was practically DOA for so long, they disappeared up their own ass.

Personally, I care a whole lot about canon and can't imagine why any fan of genre fiction wouldn't. And if Abrams violates canon (I'm not talking about NEW things added but ret-cons), he'll suffer a nerd onslaught the likes never seen. It won't happen.

It's going to be really hard to get it just right. But my guess is - and I think it will be appropriate - that Abrams will err on the side of 'too reverential' rather than not reverential enough. As long as the new characters are solid and the story is good, he can err on that side of the scale and things will be just fine.

My expectations are fairly high but tempered by common sense. But I'm also 40 years old heading into this one, unlike being overly giddy and unrealistic at 24 when Phantom Menace came out.

Chris Hayes and two guests completely geeked out over this on his show last night, it's worth a watch. For those of you who don't care for msnbc, rest assured this isn't remotely political.

"We're home"...so Corellia then?
I thought the "we're home" bit meant they were back on the Millennium Falcon, I thought I read somewhere that Han no longer owned it. Could mean Corellia though.

Both trailers look beautiful.
