Star Trek Into Darkness fever

Did you hear me? Did you hear me squealing with glee last week?

I am so absolutely PUMPED for the new addition into the Star Trek franchise: Star Trek Into Darkness. Yeah, yeah, I know some die-hard Trekkies absolutely HATE J.J. Abrams’ rendering of the sci-fi classic, but forget them. He’s done a fantastic job modernizing it and making it appeal to Trekkies and non-Trekkies alike. I grew up with Star Trek and consider myself a Trekkie (I refuse to use the word “Trekker”). Yes, I’ve been to the conventions. Yes, I have phasers at home. Yes, I once built a model of the Enterprise D. Yes, I have detailed specs of the Enterprise D. Yes, I have a Klingon dictionary. My record for watching Star Trek (2009) is 5 times in a 24-hour period. So, yeah . . . I kinda like Star Trek.

Though not without my reservations (and I recently watched Star Trek [2009] for what was probably the 50th time and found that some points really bothered me),  I loved Abrams first Star Trek movie, and I am giddy with anticipation for his next one.

Here is the first released trailer:

And the teaser:
