Yes! New Official Full-Length Star Trek Trailer!

The New Star Trek Trailer is here!

Not to be confused with the TEASER trailer
This weekend, they released the first 9 minutes of the movie with the IMAX showings of The Hobbit. I haven’t seen the first 9 minutes yet; this weekend we had a bunch of stuff to do and I still haven’t seen The Hobbit. I will have my review of that any day now, but for now…

here’s the New Star Trek Trailer:

It looks like the bad guy is in a Starfleet shirt, and I have been keeping myself away from all of the spoilers because I don’t wanna know! I just bought the Star Trek Comic books for my cousin, and I’ll probably read them before, but I promise not to spill the news!
I don’t know about you, but as the author of Captain Kirk’s Guide To Women, I am super-excited about seeing the new Star Trek movie!

New Star Trek Trailer is Out Of This World!

Red Alert Cadets!

The New Star Trek Trailer from J.J. Abrams' New Star Trek movie ("Star Trek: Into Darkness") is available and online!

It sounds like Patrick Stewart is doing the voice over, and it looks like the guy from that New Sherlock show on BBC is the villian. I know, I know, I;m supposed to have researched all of this, and The New Star Trek trailer has been out ALL DAY, but I'm just getting around to posting this!

Here it is:

Now here's the really cool thing about the New Star Trek Trailer- There's ANOTHER one that is cut for the Japanese market, anad it's a few seconds longer... 12 seconds longer. It might not seem like a lot, but that's 20% longer! Was that really Vulcan of me?

Anyway, the last few frames of the longer cut is reminiscent of a certain scene in Wrath Of Khan... just saying my heart maybe skipped a beat or two- Check out this Japanese version of The New Star Trek Trailer:

Did you see it? Exciting right? I'll be going at midnight since I don't have a day job... C'mon summer!

Spock's Guide To Women- Assigning Logic To The Illogical

Many people know I have written a few books on love and marriage, but did you know that I am also an HUGE Star Trek fan, and have written about Kirk and Spock too?

 “Oh, on the Starship Enterprise
There's someone who's in Satan's guise
Whose devil ears and devil eyes
Could rip your heart from you

At first, his look could hypnotize
And then his touch would barbarize
His alien love could victimize
And rip your heart from you

And that's why female astronauts
Oh, very female astronauts
Wait terrified and overwrought
To find what he will do

Oh, girls in space, Be wary, Be wary, Be wary Girls in space, be wary
We know not what he'll do”- Lt. Uhura

 A lot of guys would like to be as smooth as Kirk when it comes to romancing a woman, but there are some guys who think the Science Officer on the bridge of the Enterprise has more swagger with the ladies... He is half-human and half-Vulcan. Caught between two worlds, Spock's mind is in constant battle between his cold Vulcan logic and his warm, Human emotions. While his heart pumps “green ice water,” it knows loyalty, friendship and passion.

Mr. Spock is a complicated officer.

Although his romantic experience is short, he makes up for it in technique, control, and logic. Unlike the passionate nature of the Casanova of the Cosmos Captain Kirk, Spock’s mode of operation is calculated, cold, and distant.

--And it makes some women crazier than a mental patient from the Tantalus Penal colony!

By using the strategy of “playing hard to get”, Spock presents himself as a challenge and a mystery. When he romances a woman (see Chapter 4- “Romulan Commander”) Spock remains aloof, all the while implying his interest. He lets his audience believe he is “Being Two Men” by showing his emotions (however controlled) to them. Mr. Spock lets some women believe that they understand him and know who he "really" is (See Chapters 3 and 5- “Christine Chapel” and “Leila Kalomi”).

 Although it’s been said that “Cupid’s arrow kills Vulcans,” let’s take a look at a few of the times that Spock has been struck in the free downloadable report I wrote here:
