The Star Trek Movie’s Second Trailer

Here it is, the second trailer of J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Trek movie, all hellzapoppin’ and complete with an homage to the "chicken run" scene from Rebel Without a Cause.

I’m keeping in mind that it’s the job of the people who produce trailers to make a movie seem more interesting and exciting than it actually might be, but I’m still holding out hope that Abrams has been taking the story-crafting skill he hasn’t been using on the TV series Fringe and pouring it into Trek. I guess we’ll find out in a few months…

Does it make sense for young Kirk to drive a centuries-old gasoline-powered land vehicle off a cliff? Wouldn’t that be like burning Gutenberg Bibles just for kicks?

Do they even refine gasoline in the 23rd century?

And I don’t mean to get all continuity-nerd on you, but Spock had to explain to Kirk what a clutch was on the Chicago-mobster planet.

@John Bowman: In answer to your questions and continuity nerdity:

1. Since we don’t know

2. It’s quite likely you could replicate gasoline in the 23rd century.

3. Two possible explanations that aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive:
a) Perhaps it’s an automatic.
b) Seeing as this is a slightly different Star Trek, this might just be a slightly different continuity. For starters, I’ve read that Abrams & Co. changed the details about how he beat the Koybayashi Maru test.
