If you aren’t going to be watching the Super Bowl today, you will miss the airing of a new TV spot for J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek. Never fear, SF Signal is here! Watch the trailer in HD if you can:

First, the whole ‘building a starship on Earth’ thing still really bugs me, even if it does look cool.
Second, orbital diving! Now that is awesome!
I’m still not convinced this will be more than an action movie dressed up in Trekkie clothes, but it does look good. Hopefully, if the movie does blow, there will be enough space battles to salvage something. After all, who doesn’t like a good space battle?
