On Tuesday April 7th the new Star Trek movie will have its global gala premiere at the world-famous Opera House in Sydney, Australia. The event will be attended by director JJ Abrams and many of his stars, and Paramount International is offering fans (and specifically TrekMovie community members) the opportunity to ask questions of the Trek celebrities. Details below.

 

Your question can be asked at the Star Trek World Premiere
As reported earlier, Paramount International will be conducting a ‘liveblogging’ broadcast for fans from the Sydney event, plus making clips available from the earlier press event. JJ Abrams, Zachary Quinto, Chris Pine, Eric Bana and Karl Urban will all be asked fan-submitted questions, with the answers put up on the internet (and seen here at TrekMovie.com). Fans can submit questions via Twitter by just using the hashtag #asktrek (they will be searching for all tweets with that tag and selecting questions to ask at the event).

In addition to the Twitter submissions, a set of questions for the Star Trek celebrities will come from TrekMovie community members. To submit a question, just type it into the comments section below. Note who the question is for (JJ Abrams, Zachary Quinto, Chris Pine, Eric Bana or Karl Urban) and keep questions to 25 words or less. Also note your first name and home town….like so:

FOR JJ ABRAMS:

What is your favorite color?

Tony, Los Angeles, CA

Questions must be submitted by noon Pacific Time Monday. Please do not submit more than three total question suggestions. TrekMovie and PPC will select final question (All attempts will be made to get all selected questions answered, time permitting).

Show Starts Tuesday afternoon (or earlier depending on where you are)
The red carpet opens around 6:00 PM Tuesday Sydney Time (9:00 AM GMT, 4:00 AM East Coast USA, and 1:00 AM Pacific Time). Video coverage will begin sometime in the afternoon Sydney with some taped segments from the press event. There is also planned live coverage (technology permitting) during the event itself. All of that will be embedded here at TrekMovie.com via Star Trek channel at phreadz.com.

The exact schedule is being worked out right now, so stay tuned for an update for coverage of the gala World Premiere from Sydney. Until them, start submitting questions

Every great movie has one particular “tingle” moment where the audience is just bowled over; In the first Superman film it’s when the Jor-el mask turns to ice,swings around, and through it’s eyes we first see Superman in the Fortress fly toward the camera.

Star Trek is consider first science fiction series to interest women and one very closely to that ones liking science and becoming future scientists. Does this new movie going to appeal to these two collectives?.

Spain

43. Devon - April 5, 2009

FOR J.J. ABRAMS:

How much more familiar with the past Star Trek universe did you become through the process of this movie? Did you ever want to go back and watch the old episodes, or even watch any of the movies that you hadn’t before? If not, do you plan to do so?

If this movie gives birth to another two movies or even a new tv show and you were producing, would you have them set in the same era or would you explore other eras?

Chadwick, Hamilton, Ontario

46. Yammer - April 5, 2009

to CHRIS PINE: You are Kirk in Star Trek. Potentially your signature role, in a major summer tentpole, and at minimum a film with a dedicated cult following.

How do you feel?

47. tomodedadio - April 5, 2009

Ill ask from the front row myself if you wish.
Did i remember to tell you all that actually i have front row seats??

What was the single most difficult/important decision you had to make during production?

Jon, Rancho Cucamonga, CA

49. Yammer - April 5, 2009

FOR JJ ABRAMS:

How much (or little) did you visit websites like Trekmovie.com during production and if so, did the fan’s comments effect any aspect of the film?

FOR THE CAST MEMBERS:

What was your first gut reaction upon reading the script for the first time?

Jon, Rancho Cucamonga

53. Chadwick - April 5, 2009

For JJ:

Star trek’s music has always been important. It is beautiful and grandiose orchestral music which always felt epic and could clench your heart at a sad moment or fill you with pride at another. Would you say this movie has that same effect or even more so than past star trek movies?

54. Kev - April 5, 2009

#1

Simply because it’s the best country in the world — we don’t have guns in our schools! Lol America

55. Cobalt 1365 - April 5, 2009

For JJ Abrams:

In the Original Series the Kirk, Spock and McCoy were most definitely the three leading roles of the show and the films thereafter. You could say Spock and McCoy were Kirk’s yin and yang. Has the new Star Trek kept that same spirit alive or is it giving a more equal share of screen time to all of the supporting cast? (Scotty, Uhura etc…)

Michael, Lebanon, Oregon

56. Chadwick - April 5, 2009

FOR ERIC BANA:

Nero seems like a fascinating chracter, what did you like about the character and how did you “elevate” him to differ or improve upon when compared to an average villain or someone like Khan from second movie or Shinzon from star trek nemesis?

Chadwick, Hamilton, Ontario

57. I Am Morg Not Eymorg - April 5, 2009

For Karl Urban and Zachary Quinto:

Is there any Spock and McCoy sparring in the film?

Karl: Was McCoy ever married in this “reality”

Zachary: What was is like to work with Winona and Ben as your parents?

61. Chris M - April 5, 2009

FOR JJ ABRAMS:

Do you think that this Star Trek movie will reach the same kind of iconic status for this generation of children as the original Star Wars movie did for my generation?

62. Gregory L. - April 5, 2009

#asktrek

FOR JJ ABRAMS:

In Star Trek 6 The Undiscovered Country, we were treated to a cameo by Michael Dorn as Colonel Worf, the ancestor of the Next Generation Character of the same name. Could we see some similar cameos featuring actors portraying ancestors of Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager characters, or Descendants of Enterprise characters? And done obviously without compromising the plot of the film they appear.

Brandon McAllister

Milwaukee, WI, USA

Mr Phil

76. Alf - April 6, 2009

#75 Best.question.ever.

77. Phil - April 6, 2009

FOR JJ ABRAMS:

The film was originally intended for release at end 2008. Did the extra time mean tweaks to the story, or was all this work purely on fine-tuning what you had?

Philip, Dublin, Ireland.

78. Geoffers - April 6, 2009

FOR J.J. ABRAMS:

For the sequal, please, get a cameo of the SHAT and SCOT in there, as a nod to the original Kirk, and ENTERPRISE in there for the fans… just a peak….

By the end of the film is the history of Star Trek still as we know it?

David B

London

87. Dennis Sisterson - April 6, 2009

MR ABRAMS:

Since you weren’t a big Trek fan when you started on this project you had to do a lot of watching old episodes and films to ‘catch up’. Once you’d done that, what did you feel was the most important core quality or characteristic of Star Trek, that made Star Trek what it was, that you had to retain? (Other than being faithful to the characters, which goes without saying!)

88. Dennis Sisterson - April 6, 2009

MR ABRAMS:

Originally, the Enterprise was supposed to “explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations, and boldly go where no man has gone before ” – but they never actually did those things in the movies. Will you be setting out to rectify this in future films?

89. AJ - April 6, 2009

For JJ ABRAMS:

I was weondering how well do you see this film fitting in with what has already been established in Star Trek?

Neill- Northern ireland,UK

99. Harry - April 6, 2009

FOR JJ ABRAMS:

Seeing how the latest comics and upcoming game(s) tie into the new movie, how do you see the relation between Star Trek the movie and other media? Or, to ask it in another way: What your stance on canon?

Harry, Groningen, The Netherlands

100. captain_neill - April 6, 2009

97 – the next one will be Star Trek XII

I hope they don’t call the next one Star Trek II as that title has already been taken for one of the greatest movies ever.

101. captain_neill - April 6, 2009

For JJ

I know you have seen the original series and the movies but was there any of the spin offs that you enjoyed the most?

For writers Bob and Alex, as well as JJ & the cast:

As an optimistic actor and writer myself, and fan of the entire ‘Trek franchise, where would you honestly like to see each CHARACTER go in the next film, and would you each appreciate (or perhaps be just a little bit intimidated by) help and/or [guidance in some appropriate form] from previous ‘Trek actors from TOS and/or any of the five incarnations of Star Trek?

Rhett Coates, West Point, VA

106. Vinci - April 6, 2009

For Roger Guyett

Were there any breakthroughs for ILM on this film, if so what were they.

John

Thousand Oaks, California

107. C.S. Lewis - April 6, 2009

For Abrams:

If Star Trek was “1960s American man,” struggling against his own instincts as he sat atop the food chain — without rival — leading to dramatic questions such as, “Ought we suppress our instinct for self-preservation?” or “Is it necessary to kill to achieve our goal?” and infused with the gnostic theology of knowledge = transcendence,

What does this episode say to the generations, if anything?

Sincerely,
C.S. Lewis

108. MajelSeven - April 6, 2009

For JJ ABRAMS:

Is there any luck that we can watch Star Trek XI on Chinese mainland’s big screens? and if it’s will , where can we watch it on ordinary screens or just in IMAX? (or none of them? that will be the very bad news :( )

For All:
If we can watch it in Chinese mainland’s big screens, this Star Trek film will be the very first Star Trek aired in Chinese mainland, is there a big surprise or surprises for the Trekkies and Trekkers here in China?(as we all knew JJ always gives us big surprises!), and will the crew of the film will come to meet the Trekkies in China?

sorry, asking so many questions below, but I really expect the answers sincerely!

星际旅行 is the Chinese name of Star Trek, 星迷 is the Chinese name of Trekkies (both in Chinese mainland)

ps: any questions you can email me :)

MajelSeven, Shanghai, China

109. Nikos - April 6, 2009

For JJ Abrams

We know that there is already a sequel in the works. Do you think that this might be the beginning of a “long run” involvement in the Star Trek franchise for you? Like Star Wars was for George Lucas and Indiana Jones was for Steven Spielberg, could it be Star Trek for you?

Nicholas, Milan, Italy

110. screaming satellite - April 6, 2009

For ERIC BANA:

If the new movie is as succsessful as we all hope and if there will be a 12th and 13th movie of Star Trek, what do you think will happen after that? Would you stay with Star Trek or do you think everyone could be recast again?

Daniel, Germany

117. Raphael Salgado - April 6, 2009

FOR JOHN CHO

You’ve already broken the barrier with ‘Harold & Kumar’ to show that Asians are funny and cool, and with a more bold take on Sulu, you give strength and identity, further breaking the stereotypes and going from supporting to lead. Do you think you will be integral in opening the flood doors to bring more Oriental Asians to the mainstream?

119. SaphronGirl - April 6, 2009

For the writers (Bob & Alex) and/or J.J. Abrams:

Star Trek has always been a powerful force in changing entrenched social attitudes. The original series used universally human stories and subtle metaphor to give a voice to issues that may have never otherwise been tackled (for instance, the first inter-racial kiss between Kirk and Uhura). Do you think it’s time that Trek continue that progressive tradition and feature an openly gay or bisexual character, perhaps in the sequel to this film?

Meg, Plano, TX

120. Raphael Salgado - April 6, 2009

FOR ALL:

What was it liking working with the beloved Majel Barrett-Roddenberry and Randy Pausch, both of whom we miss so much and wish they could have been here at this event today?

125. Ampris - April 6, 2009

FOR KARL URBAN: How prepared are you deal with the fandom? Not just the convention crowd, but the online fandom communities too, the slashers, the fanfic writers, artists, etc.. Do you prefer not to worry about all that? Or do you find it interesting? I’m just curious how you guys feel about this.

FOR JJ ABRAMS: Do you feel like BBQ? A gala premiere down south might be worth your time. ;)

126. Ben Luna - April 6, 2009

FOR JJ ABRAMS:

Mr. Abrams,

Thanks so for bringing life back to Star Trek in such an awesome way!

Several months ago during an interview you revealed that “we actually have a life sized Enterprise.” Your comment further explains you can’t reveal anymore information about it at this time. At this point, can you reveal any more information about this?

Ben, Tennessee

127. Tom Welling For Superman - April 6, 2009

For J.J. Abrams:

If the story is written well, do you see William Shatner being in the sequel?

For J.J. Abrams:

Does Old Spock know about Kirk dying in Generations, and does he tell Pine’s Kirk this?

128. fwise3 - April 6, 2009

During the writer’s strike, it was mentioned that you had a few ideas that you couldn’t use because of the restrictions on writing. Did you ever get a chance to implement these into the final cut? Thanks!

For John Cho:

How you can you account for the diffence in the positioning of the lateral thruster firing controls from the new Enterprise vs. the Original Enterprise at the helmsman station? It makes no sense that they would be moved almost 3 inches to the left! Jeez. Talk about ruining the movie.

137. Patrick Gleeson - April 6, 2009

FOR JJ ABRAMS:

How was the internal design of the Enterprise arrived at, as it’s so different to the previous movies and TV series, particularly TOS?

138. Sotirios Moshonas - April 6, 2009

For the Australian Star Trek fans, I salute you with honours and respect. Considering yourselves lucky that the new movie is premeiring at the Opera House. Cheers, mates and shielas.

Unfortuneatly, I have already pass the torch to the people who created the original star trek episodes on the internet. I meant the people who created Star Trek New Voyages aka Star Trek Phase II, Of Gods and Men, USS Farragut series, USS Excalibur and the updated animated Star Trek Series.

I am sorry I am not into this new jumpstart of Gene’s first baby. I would rather see a DS9 Movie or a Star Trek Enterprise movie or even a return possible continuation series of Star Trek Enterprise.

Thank you for reading my point of view.

Have a great, prosperous easter, everyone.

JJ ABRAMS:

Other than being faithful to the characters, what did you feel was the most important core quality or characteristic of Star Trek, that made Star Trek what it was, that you had to retain?

JJ ABRAMS:

Originally, the Enterprise was supposed to “explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations, and boldly go where no man has gone before ” – but they never actually did those things in the movies. Will you be setting out to rectify this in future films?

Dennis Sisterson, London, UK

Star Trek is heavy with effects shots. Was working in front of a green screen new for you and, as an actor, how do you keep focused on what you are “supposed” to be looking at, when in reality you are staring at a green wall?

The productions values on the new ST film appear to far surpass any previous ST film. Does your background dealing with the budget limitations in television on such an ambitious show as Alias help you put “more dollars on the screen”?

155. Scott Thornton - April 6, 2009

Hello and Thanks so much for STAR TREK! My question is for Mr. Abrhams,:

What direction will Star Trek take after this movie? Will we see movies from the historic Five Year Mission?

Thanks!

156. What is it with you? - April 6, 2009

For JJ Abrahms:

You have ten previous movies worth of audience “testing”. Did you study what worked and what didn’t? What have you tried to avoid that didn’t work? What have you tried to emphasize that did?

TO J.J. ABRAMS and FELLOW “SUPREME COURT” MEMBERS:

For JJ/Bob/Alex:

Is 360 degree lens flare this years shakey cam and will it be replaced next year by a 3d 360 degree lens flare shakey cam or a transformer that can do all of the above at the same time? If so where can I get one and at what price?

For JJ/Bob/.Alex:

I know certain elements of Trek Fandom can be; how shall i put it politely, ahem, demanding with regards to canon and the tiniest of minutae. Not to mention that the era you chose is delving deep into the realm of fan fic/ speculation; so how did you guys decide on the direction you wanted to go in with all the pitfalls and pressures associated with that from certain aspects of fandom?

finally for Eric Bana:

I was pleasantly surprised when i heard you were going to be in the film so I was just wondering what interested you in the role and how did you approach it?

Paul, Dublin, Ireland.

Cheers Anthony/ Paramount/ The Cast and Crew for taking the time to answer some questions from us mere mortals.

Anthony, I presume we’re getting a transcript obviously? Thanks again peoples.

161. Sébastien - April 6, 2009

TO J.J ABRAMS and the rest of the Star Trek crew

Star Trek, as the movie tagline says, is about mankind’s future and the hopes it carries.
If there was some kind of technology that allow you to “beam” in that universe, would you like to live in it?

162. Mike Stivic - April 6, 2009

For anyone, including TrekMovie.com and fans:

What was the point of keeping Star Trek XI such a secret if the movie is going to be shown a full month before it’s in theaters?

Everything is going to be revealed after tomorrow.

I don’t get it.

I just realized there’s a 25 word limit on the questions, so I’m truncating mine:

For the Writers (Bob and Alex) and/or J.J. Abrams;

Do you feel that Trek should continue the orignal series’ progressive tradition and feature an openly gay or bisexual character, perhaps in the sequel?

167. Jay - April 6, 2009

For J.J. ABRAMS:

Though CGI is the dominant method of creating visual effects for modern science fiction films, were any live-action models (of the ships, per se) use during principle photography? If so, what was a challenge you faced during storyboarding/shooting?

Thanks,

169. Mike Stivic - April 6, 2009

FOR ROBERTO ORCI,

Can you have Old Spock give Young Kirk this letter to be opened in 2293 (before the launch of the Enterprise-B.)

Dear Jim,

Please advise Starfleet not to send the Enterprise-B on it’s media cruise around Pluto without being fully equipped to respond to distress calls. A situation will arise requiring the use of tractor beams and/or torpedoes. Do not let the Enterprise leave without them or your life will be endangered.

Also, give Tolian Soran a shuttle so he can fly into that pink energy ribbon. Trust me, just do it.

Best wishes,

Spock

To JJ:

The visual style of Star Trek had a lot to do with the way things looked (and you’ve obviously stayed pretty true to that), but also about the way those things were shot. For example, the upshot of Kirk on the bridge that pushes in for dramatic dialog. How much did the original visual styles of TOS inform the way this movie was shot?

Dominic F, London, UK

190. Nelson - April 6, 2009

For JJ Abrams-

Nearly all the Star Trek films have space battles and destruction or a threat agains Earth and your film has been promoted in trailers as containing similar action. That is certainly fun to watch.

But Star Trek, the original series was not always about that. Some of the best hours of Star Trek dealt with other issues, like tolerance to those who look different, or the realities of war, or learning a big lesson from aliens who teach Kirk and company how small mankind is or how still early he is in his development compared to other intelligence in the Universe. Can a sequel film be done in that kind of vein? Of course I realize some action is necessary or else you won’t attract a general non-Trek audience.

Thanks!

Nelson

191. Maurício - Brazil - April 6, 2009

For JJ Abrams

Star Trek has always been about three people: Kirk, Spock AND McCoy. From the footage I have seen in traillers I feel a strong emphasys on Kirk and Spock, letting the good old doctor as a kind of sidekick. My question is: Is McCoy being given the space he is due?
Live long and prosper to you and the crew !!!

For any:

What episode of the original series comes closest to the spirit of the new film?

199. Trek Nerd Central - April 6, 2009

For all of them:

Before starting work on this movie, did you regard Star Trek fandom as pathetic, loveless dweebs stuck in our parents’ basements?

After long months of putting up with us on the web, do you now?

200. Bill Peters - April 6, 2009

To JJ:

What do you hope the reaction will be internationally? do you think trek can be big in non english speaking Countries?

201. Tom Welling For Superman - April 6, 2009

Question,

So does that mean websites like aintitcoolnews will basically have the whole movie spoiled tomorrow or Wednesday?

202. Charles Trotter - April 6, 2009

To those asking questions of Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, etc.

These are only questions for J.J. ABRAMS, ERIC BANA, CHRIS PINE, ZACHARY QUINTO, and KARL URBAN. Zoe, Simon, and the others will not be there. Sorry to disappoint.

203. Capt. of the USS Anduril - April 6, 2009

For JJ Abrams:

The movie is confirmed at 124 minutes, not counting any additional scenes that may or may not end up on the DVD extras. That puts it at just over 2 hours. Is this a kind of apology for the last Star Trek movie which had quality scenes cut from the final version to get the movie UNDER two hours?

Galen, Oklahoma US

204. Locke for President - April 6, 2009

Question for JJ and the writers:

If the movie does great, how will you hide from the passionate fans? And if the movie does poorly, how will you hide form the passionate fans? In other words, how much of your personal identity is invested in the success or failure of this movie?

Question 2: When Kirk goes to the store in Iowa to buy some manly-man items, does he choose paper or plastic?

For Zach Quinto-What was the hardest part of taping Star Trek and Heroes at the same time? Having to play Sylar then getting into playing Spock so soon after must have been difficult as an actor.

For cast-What do you home to gain from this tour personally? Are you still in awe of this worldwide love of Star Trek?

Cast-if you could speak to one person from the past or present who would it be?

211. Spockish - April 6, 2009

For JJ Abrams:

Since Star Trek guides our future, when do you think we will get off the genetics wagon and start the sub-atomic’s future of technology. In other words move from Khan to Zeffrim Cockrin. I feel it will start after errors are made to clone humans.

boborci…if you’re still up to answering a question or two here…is the skydiving sequence in the fil in any way connected to the deleted opening scenes in Generations where Kirk was spending his retirement “orbital skydiving”? Conscious decision or just happy accident? It makes for a fun little tie-in regardless.

216. Raphael Salgado - April 6, 2009

Bob, this is the first Trek movie with a decent wife acceptance factor (WAF). With only the few bits and pieces you tease us with, you’re already my hero. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.

I even took the day off from work to prepare for it. The only other two times I did that was to get on line for the iPhone and the iPhone 3G. So far, each one of those days off was well worth the wait and effort.

I can only hope you guys make a kick-ass, full-featured Blu-Ray release, too.

217. Planet Pandro - April 6, 2009

218. Planet Pandro - April 6, 2009

Hey Mr. Orci, maybe Damon Lindeloff’s master plan for “Lost” is that The Others were time traveling Star Trek writers escaping The Wrath of Fans.

I think you might be Jacob from the cabin. You both look the same when you’re invisible. Coincidence . . . . I think not!

Happy accident. Found out about that much later! Had we known, it would of made our jobs a lot easier instead of having to re-invent the wheel.

The “wife acceptance factor” should be through the roof since we really made sure to run everything by our wives as well!

Just want to thank Bob Orci for being so awesome, gracious and open. As big a fan of JJ’s as I am, you’re the one who gives me most of the faith I have re: the new movie. I was quite skeptical at first, but your passion, knowledge and appreciation of all things TREK has been very inspiring. And I just read Countdown. Like I wasn’t already pumped up enough for Trek XI…

Nero’s already one of my favorite characters from Trek and I know he’ll make for a hell of a bad guy.

For JJ Abrams

I believe you said previously that you’re earliest memory from Star Trek was seeing the reveal of the refitted Enterprise from the first movie. Will there be a similar reveal in this movie!? :-)
