Paramount Pictures has released the new trailer for JJ AbramsStar Trek. We get to learn about James Kirk’s father, and the film’s real story — how he becomes the captain of the Enterprise. I’m not sure about you guys, but when I watched this trailer when they premiered it at WonderCon, you could feel the geek excitement as Pine sits down in the captains chair for the first time. I’m actually surprised at some of the plot points that the trailer ruins, for instance, the planet that implodes into itself. And the space battle between Nero’s ship and the Enterprise looks both epic and insane. And how about Michael Giacchino’s awesome score?! Watch the trailer after the jump, and tell me what you think in the comments below.

One grew up in the cornfields of Iowa, fighting for his independence, for a way out of a life that promised only indifference, aimlessness, and obscurity. The other grew up on the jagged cliffs of the harsh Vulcan desert, fighting for acceptance, for a way to reconcile the logic he was taught with the emotions he felt.In the far reaches of the galaxy, a machine of war bursts into existence in a place and time it was never meant to be. On a mission of retribution of the destruction of his planet, its half-mad captain seeks the death of every intelligent being, and the annihilation of every civilized world. Kirk and Spock, two completely different and unyielding personalities, must find a way to lead the only crew, aboard the only ship, that can stop him.

You can watch the trailer in High Definition on Apple. Star Trek hits theaters on May 8th 2009.
