Official Promotional Site For Star Trek Goes Live

The official Paramount site for Star Trek just went online a few minutes ago.


New logo and more to come
The new site shows the new official logo for the film with a little intro animation. This is the same logo you will see in the trailer and is based on the Enterprise command emblem from The Original Series. Right now the only other thing functioning on the site is the ability to register for updates. It promises to have forums, but that part ‘coming soon’ as is a webmaster program. The new teaser trailer will likely be available on the site sometime after the opening weekend of Cloverfield. Although the site doesn’t have much now (as the ‘under construction’ notation indicates), it is expected to grow over time.

UPDATE: Site Updated
Online for just a few hours and already the site has a small update. At the bottom it now lists the credits and official synopsis. However it is the same info from Paramount’s 2008 Preview released in early December.

The official movie site located at paramount.com/startrek.

The teaser trailer showing this weekend with Cloverfield will be direct people to StarTrek.com, which will have some kind of link to this promotional site (likely to be implemented by this weekend). This is the same way it was handled with Star Trek Nemesis, except that film’s promotional site was at nemesis.startrek.com.

Yay!

Well, at least it’s got SOMETHING on the site, which is better than no site at all. Forums could be a good thing.

Well, I like the shiny insiginia — same styling, but buffed to a sheen. Maybe like the new movie?. . . Everything old is new again.

No more exact date on the promo stuff. Earlier release most likely. Looks good.

…and so it begins….

Love it!

Oh yeah, the “secret hint” is still in the logo.

Wow, that logo looks very similar to the one at the end of my fan trailer, except silver, rather than gold. Cool.

#4. It does say “Christmas 2008,” which seems pretty exact. . . much as I’d like it to be earlier. In which case it would say “Advent 2008.”

Saweeeet!

Ah,….let us see what we see.

Cool, The webmaster program looks interesting i imagine it promotional program for us webmasters that run Trek sites to help promote the film. There real question is will the site be up fast than someone sticking the teaser on youtube LOL

so who else got a slight chill when the insignia materialized?

Sweet!

#12. I did. What a tribute to Bill Theiss that the ol’ badge still gets a rise out of us after all these decades.

Chilled Sweet!

Star Trek Lives!!

yay! It’s really going to happen.

Totally stoked for this flick.

#14 amen to that. it’s timeless.

… and the adventure… is to be updated. Soon. :D

Is it December yet?

one yea i remember star trek generations was one of the first movies i remember to have a site, man we have come a long way since then.

lol if even half of the people go the movie site that vist here , i bet they will get 1,000s registers people in a few days , might show paramount people still care about star trek and buzz around the movie

nice logo.

curse you #6 – now I’m looking for that hint.

That logo is not canon…. the curve of the sides is off by a few degrees and the height of the right lower point is wrong by ,005 millimeteres.

I will not see this film.

:) That’s one bad-ass logo for TOS. Little edgier, doncha think?

Peace. Live long and prosper.

Good logo. Very faithful to the original while certainly emanating a contemporary vibe.

[Gives #23 a look of abject terror.]

For the LOVE OF GOD, noooooooooo!
[runs away, screaming, from thread.]

Peace. Live long and prosper.

The page title says:

“Star Trek :: The Official Movie Site :: In Theaters December 25, 2008”

I looked at the source code (hoping for any hidden nuggets) and found the following bit of code interesting:

I find it ironic that they realize the strength of Kirk’s character to the franchise and yet opted not (officially, anyhow…) to include The Shat in any way. I guess I’m just feeling a bit jaded.

Ooh- the code got left out. Lemme try again…

“meta name=”Keywords” content=”Star Trek, Spock, Kirk, JJ Abrams”

I love it when a plans comes together.

Bookmarked!

Well of *course* the metatags include Kirk and Spock. I’m surprised that “Enterprise” isn’t in there as well.

Kirk is in the movie – has quite a big part, in fact. ;)

Would be nice if they add a rss/atom feed.

” :) That’s one bad-ass logo for TOS. Little edgier, doncha think?”

Edgy=Bad

I hate the new website.

It needs a red bridge railing and Shatner.

Otherwise it’s NOT CANNON.

Nice so far…..

#28. No. More. Shat. Involvement. Talk. Please.

No one mentions that the “Under Construction” font is the same typeface as on the NCC-1701 primary hull.

Ok…..not much to see, thus far.

Aww, {{{Stanky}}}… What’s gonna happen when you finally see this flick on free TV and you fall in LOVE with it? ;-)

Peace. Live long and Prosper.

It’s probably not ever going to be cannon. Canon maybe.

Edgy to me = interesting. Stanky, as usual = :(

Jury is out on this site–nothing there yet. But it’s a start and I’m happy to see that.

Signed up. Let’s hope construction continues at a brisk pace!

Anthony how do you think new movie site will compare to yours for news on the movie? Anthony I know on report you said the new site will have a link to it at StarTrek.com but I wonder for how long and if the new movie site will replace StarTrek.com?

Its already better than the “Of Gods and Men” website hahaha.

Cool.

I’m curious if they will go with different insignia for different ships and have this one only for the Enterprise, like they did in TOS (assuming that we get to see people from other ships, which I think is very likely).

I hope they will have more up on the site before the teaser premieres. I’d be disappointed, if I were a regular viewer and went to the trouble of visiting it after seeing the teaser, and there was nothing there except the logo.

So by what time Friday will the pics of the ship be online? Not officially i’m sure but I figured shortly after the cloverfield starts. Nice to finally see an “official” site up but will probably find more info here first!

#38, I was just about to mention that. :D

I don’t see why some of you guys here are oooohing and aaahing about the “new logo;” it doesn’t look any different from the logo used in “The Motion Picture” and the other TOS Movies. *shrugs*

Hmmm. The logo seems to be updated, yet original. Fascinating.

Spiffy. :)
