Excited about all the info coming in, but can’t see this video. Hopefully really soon we will hear about more of what Hasbro has planned other than the Kreo line too.

2. CoolPT - December 3, 2012

Facinating…

3. Valenti - December 3, 2012

Fascinating.

4. Shoborken - December 3, 2012

indeed

5. captainslater - December 3, 2012

Video not loading for me.

6. sunfell - December 3, 2012

Zach totally trolled us. I loved it!

7. Sebastian S. - December 3, 2012

Me neither… I’ll try again some other time.

8. Maculous - December 3, 2012

I love these jokes about all the hype, especially when people get flustered and take them so seriously.

9. Dadio - December 3, 2012

Loved it also

10. Brandon - December 3, 2012

Don’t waste your time. I apprectiate the occasional humor, but now I’m really feeling like they are just trying to insult our intelligence here. I plan to see “The Hobbit” on opening night, but I’m not holding my breath for any real enlightening Star Trek reveal. All this secrecy crap surrounding the next Star Trek might end up back firing. Luckily I’m a big fan of the woks of J.R.R. Tolkien so I’m mainly going to see that.

11. wildenrath - December 3, 2012

Bastard lol

12. Brandon - December 3, 2012

Works of Tolkien. I don’t think he was all that into Woks! LOL

13. Jack - December 3, 2012

nice.

14. SciFiMetalGirl - December 3, 2012

No workie on the iPadie :(

15. cleverclogs - December 3, 2012

Ah ha. Hilarious.

16. MattR - December 3, 2012

#1 I’m pretty sure Hasbro make products that compete with DST and Playmates, so I don’t think they can make ships or figures in the traditional sense.

17. captain spock - December 3, 2012

hope fully this link works better for u all!

18. Emperor Mike of the Empire - December 3, 2012

That Green Blooded InHuman. It’s his revenge for all those argument’s he lost!.

19. Jack - December 3, 2012

10. Have you never watched Conan? The show pulls this kind of crap constantly. It’s funny because it’s lame.

20. Steve Johnson - December 3, 2012

I think even those of us who have reservations about the new movies, and I have many, I think even those most militant about it have to admit Quinto was a stand out as Spock. He was perfect.

21. Captain Lonestar - December 3, 2012

Did he say something under his breath about not working with Nimoy (“Necessarily”)?

22. Tanner Waterbury - December 3, 2012

LOL! The part with Richter at the end was priceless!

23. Shooter McGavin - December 3, 2012

@10. This is just a movie. Calm down.

24. jamesingeneva - December 3, 2012

love conan, was really hoping to see a real clip but any press is good press.

25. cd - December 3, 2012

20 – uh, no. Quinto’s Spock was whiny and petulant, not cool like Nimoy’s Spock. The ‘I demand to know how you got on this ship’ bit was pathetic, not Spock at all. Maybe Quinto had to suffer with a poor script, and that’s why his Spock was so bad, but be that as iit may, it is what it is. Maybe ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ will be better, but the mimicking of TDK is not encouraging.

26. Aix - December 3, 2012

LOL! I love the fact that it was live and not recorded. Zach seems like a cool dude.

27. MJ - December 4, 2012

Folks, you are not getting the joke. The clip is dark because they are making fun of Trek into darkness. That is why there is no clip here, just black.

I don’t really find either JJ’s stunt or this very funny. It’s mocks us fans.

28. dlee - December 4, 2012

25 Agreed – a very wooden performance.

29. ProtoVulcan - December 4, 2012

@27: there is a Conan clip

30. Riker's Beard - December 4, 2012

They are making fun of fans and you can’t blame them. How about we laugh with them and just look forward to the movie.

31. AJ - December 4, 2012

Wankers! LOL

32. KennyB - December 4, 2012

This is doing exactly what JJ and Paramount want……….it’s been simmering amongst the fan base the whole time and now they are slowly getting into mainstream press again and it will boil soon and blow the lid off by May………He’s a pro. I’m not. I’ll trust he knows what he’s doing.

33. Dee - lvs moon' surface - December 4, 2012

funny!!

34. Phobos - December 4, 2012

Oh I can’t wait.
Quinto seems more seasoned now. More Spock-ish. I like it.

35. Picard, Jean-Luc - December 4, 2012

HAHA oh man, that was funny.

There’s always gotta be one or two fans who can’t lighten up and enjoy all this, I feel sorry for those fans.

36. Phobos - December 4, 2012

@27
I know what you mean about the mocking the Trek fans thing. I also squirm a bit when actors go on talk shows. It’s as if they feel obliged to be a parody.

I wish someone would tell them: “It’s OK to just be normal and have respect for your work. You are on the show for your fans, the people who buy the tickets and the blu rays. Just go there and tell them how you did your work, if you liked it, and what the fans can expect. That’s it, don’t have to make a joke out of everything Star Trek.”

That being said, the interview was still appreciated.

37. Phobos - December 4, 2012

You know what would have made that Conan interview unique?
If Quinto actually played a short role with Conan in front of that green screen, and if he acted in character. Showcased his acting talent.

Now that would be impressive. And quite frankly things like that would strengthen the franchise. And you know Conan would just LOVE to do it.

Not everything has to be a parody.

38. VulcanFilmCritic - December 4, 2012

There have only been two movies, four years apart, and already a kind of malaise has set in. The only “news” we’ve gotten has been these silly spoofs which are really aimed at the fans. This kind of tomfoolery I could understand AFTER the movie has come out, but before? Really?
If Bad Robot really had a spectacular product like “2001″ they would be really stoked over of the material. Even if they had a product that was on the level of a good James bond movie, I think there would be a certain excitement. But I’m not getting that vibe. What I’m getting is a certain bored loxiness, as if promoting this thing is such a chore. From the beginning, I’ve gotten the feeling that “Star Trek” has been a burden and a somewhat silly and embarrassing burden at that.
The time to promote this movie was last August at ComicCon. But I guess the strategy is to move on from the traditional fan base and embrace the wider world of people who just want to have a good time at the movies. And for that level of product, I guess loxiness is OK.

40. The Professor - December 4, 2012

Silly, but amusing.

41. Maculous - December 4, 2012

“Oh gawd, we’re being mocked and being made fun of! It’s like middle school all over again!”

Get a life, people. Learn to take a freaking joke and laugh at yourselves. Don’t you realize that’s why people keep making fun of Trekkies? Because it’s EASY to get some of you in a tissy?

42. Phobos - December 4, 2012

@41
I sense the fans tolerate the parody antics of some actors; they would prefer it not be there. Absolutely legitimate concern.

At the end of the day, the paying customer is what matters. If the fans don’t want to be repeatedly mocked under the threat of being accused of “not being able to take a joke”, then Paramount should just tell its actors to protect the integrity of their franchise.

If I owned the Trek franchise, the phone calls would already have gone out to the stars to show respect for the customers else just stay off the talk show circuit (or don’t bring up franchise material).

Anyway, all that said the Quinto interview was appreciated; but I do see why some fans are annoyed with the constant parody jabbing in the ribs.

43. Vince - December 4, 2012

Oh come on with this trolling crap. Is it confirmed that a 9 minute preview will be before The Hobbit in IMAX, or IMAX 3D? Or both. Will it be a troll preview, or an actual friggan’ preview.

44. Admiral Archer's Prized Beagle - December 4, 2012

There are aliens and they will explode!

45. T'Cal - December 4, 2012

Why, you green-blooded, inhuman…

46. Brandon - December 4, 2012

I’m not amused by the same joke. Fool me once shame on you/ fool me twice bit. I really wish they would do more of a viral campaign that has something more contemplative is all I’m saying. Maybe if the villain was like Loki in the Avengers impish pranks would be more in line. Maybe Cumberpatch is Q!

47. NuFan - December 4, 2012

42

But the paying customers outnumber the fans by a huge, huge margin. They take priority.

48. Anthony Lewis - December 4, 2012

So people can stop complaining about secrecy.

http://www.nerdist.com/2011/12/nerdist-podcast-149-jj-abrams/

Listen to it, JJ explains why he does it, I love it, and if he’s directing this is what you can expect.

49. rm10019 - December 4, 2012

43 Where have you been? Yes, the first 9 minutes of Trek is infront of Hobbit Imax 3D only. Another trailer will be released wide at this time for other films.

50. The Sinfonian - December 4, 2012

Will that trailer run ONLY on December 14, or in front of Hobbit IMAX 3D for its run?

51. sean - December 4, 2012

The only ‘fans’ this is mocking are the ones with absolutely no sense of humor of self-awareness.

52. Mark James Tucker A Man And His Dream - December 4, 2012

Soo Quinto cOnfirms that Nimoy is not in Trek into Darkness, even though Anthony cOnfirmed that Nimoy would be in that article.

just a matter of time till they officially cOnfirm that Mitchell is not Khan.

53. DaddlerTheDalek - December 4, 2012

“There are aliens, and they will explode.” XD

54. sean - December 4, 2012

#52

Where did you see Quinto confirming that?

55. Admiral Ensign - December 4, 2012

@52:

And then they issue a denial, and put duct tape over the mouth of the confirmer, the denier, and a random intern just to be certain.

I’ll add my voice to those saying this approach to marketing/promotion is disrespectful of the audience. If you’re that obsessive about the security and preserving every possible surprise, then you should just not say anything at all, rather than issuing “three frame previews” and doing fake “clips”, which however tongue-in-cheek and amusing they may be, are still thumbing noses at people who want to GIVE YOU MONEY.

While I do appreciate that there’s a degree to which this particular fanbase is so rabid for news that it can be silly, this approach is still condescending at best, and flat-out foolish at worst.

56. al - December 4, 2012

It’s cool to make jokes and skits and all, but seriously, after almost 5 years of waiting, you’d think they would come out and just deliver something interesting. I really hope this movie is something, and I do hope it makes a lot of money or it may be a long time before we get another trek film, or a movie for that matter.

57. SChaos1701 - December 4, 2012

56.

Dude, it hasn’t even been 4 years.

58. Tom - December 4, 2012

#54 sean
It was on Trekweb. He said he wasn’t working with him this time

59. CmdrR - December 4, 2012

Just a few more days until the long trailer/sample thingie.

Can’t wait.

60. Ace Hamilton - December 5, 2012

“Undone”? I think you mean outdone.

61. Rose (as in Keachick) - December 5, 2012

Just watched this with sound. Is it me or is this just such bollocks? I guess from now on, there will be a lot more of this kind of stuff all over the place. Just have to get used to it, I guess…sigh…

62. Chris Rod - December 5, 2012

ROTFLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE CONAN/ANDY! hahah Quinto is good! lol – good stuff. THANKS GOV’NA!

63. Marja - December 5, 2012

Thanks for trying, Captain Spock (#17) – I couldn’t see either video so will have to try from another computer.

From the still pic, I kinda think Spock could stand to wear his hair like that ancient Earth actor, Zachary Quinto ; )
