Tired of viewing that crappy YouTube handicam version? The teaser trailer for JJ Abrams’ Star Trek is now online in high definition. I know a lot of trek fans are not to happy with this first look. I love the idea of trying to ground Trek in U.S. space travel history. I really think that things like this might be able to bring a whole new audience into the series. For a non Trekkie, the series and movies are instantly jarring. Too geeky, too sci-fi. I think JJ might be on to something here.
