This morning Paramount Pictures released their ‘2009 Press Preview Kit.’ It includes brief overviews and some images for each of their 16 feature films slated for 2009. For Star Trek none of info was new and the four images were all previously released, however they were in super high resolution (including the image of the new USS Enterprise). Check them out below
HIGH resolution images from Star Trek
All of these images had been shown before, but since the press kit is for all media (including print media), the images are very high resolution so they can be used in magazines. Usually online sites resize image, but TrekMovie is the first to present the following in their full (up to 5484 x 2332 bandwidth hogging) size. These new images allow you to really get up close and personal and see new details, especially with the Enterprise exterior and bridge.
Images presented below with the ‘official’ captions provided by Paramount. Click the images to see in full size and download.

Official Paramount ‘one pager’ and synopsis
The Press kit also includes ‘one pagers’ or single page breakdowns of each of the films. The one for "Star Trek" is actually almost identical as the one from the 2008 Press Preview (see Dec. 2007 TrekMovie article). But here it is all the same:
Note for credits junkies
The only real change we see here is with regards to the production partner. Sometime during 2008 Paramount switched its Star Trek production partner from Level 1 Entertainment to Spyglass Entertainment. This is very ‘inside baseball’ stuff and has no real impact on the film itself. It is common for studios to bring in financial partners on big budget films to share in the costs (and profits), and for some reason they changed partners in 2008.
