    Very true. My best friend got her PhD in chaos theory - yes to your interpretation of it.

    And yes to everything you said in your spoiler box.

    DVD release announced for November 17th, 2009.

    The 3 Disc Edition features :

    Disc 1:
    Commentary—By director J.J. Abrams, writers Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman, producer Damon Lindelof and executive producer Bryan Burk.

    NASA News— This BD-Live feature gives viewers access to the latest NASA news about real space exploration. Learn about new mission developments and check out featured imagery from around the universe.

    Disc 2:
    To Boldly Go— Taking on the world’s most beloved science fiction franchise was no small mission. Director J.J. Abrams, writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, producer Damon Lindelof, and executive producer Bryan Burk talk about the many challenges they faced and their strategy for success.
    Branching Pods:
    The Shatner Conundrum
    Red Shirt Guy
    The Green Girl
    Trekker Alert!

    Casting— The producers knew their greatest task was finding the right cast to reprise these epic roles. The cast, for their part, talk about the experience of trying to capture the essence of these mythic characters. The piece concludes with a moving tribute to Leonard Nimoy.

    A New Vision— J.J. Abrams’ vision was not only to create a Star Trek that was a bigger, more action-packed spectacle but also to make the spectacle feel real. Every aspect of production—from unique locations to the use of classic Hollywood camera tricks—was guided by this overall objective.
    Branching Pods:
    Savage Pressure

    Starships—Abrams and production designer Scott Chambliss were careful to pay tribute to the design of the original Enterprise, but they also wanted to make it futuristic and cool for a modern audience. This chapter focuses on the unique stories behind the creation of the film’s starships.
    Branching Pods:
    Warp Explained
    Paint Job
    Bridge Construction Accelerated
    The Captain’s Chair
    Button Acting 101
    Shuttle Shuffle
    Narada Construction Accelerated

    Aliens— Designers Neville Page and Joel Harlow talk about the hurdles they faced creating new alien species, recreating the Romulans and Vulcans, and designing the terrifying creatures on Delta Vega for the new Star Trek.
    Branching Pods:
    The Alien Paradox
    Big-Eyed Girl
    Big Bro Quinto
    Klingons
    Drakoulias Anatomy 101

    Planets— From the frozen landscape of Delta Vega to the desert plains of Vulcan, Scott Chambliss and the art department had a number of radically different planets to create. Abrams’ desire to shoot on real locations whenever possible led the production team to a number of strange and surprising locations.
    Branching Pods:
    Extra Business
    Confidentiality

    Props and Costumes— Property master Russell Bobbitt had the unique challenge of designing props that were both true to the original series and pertinent to today’s technology. Likewise, costume designer Michael Kaplan talks about how he designed costumes that paid homage to what came before yet were relevant and timeless.
    Branching Pods:
    Klingon Wardrobe

    Ben Burtt and the Sounds of Star Trek— When famed sound designer Ben Burtt was hired to create sounds for the first Star Wars film, he took his inspiration from the original “Star Trek” series. Burtt jumped at the opportunity to pay tribute to the sounds that sparked his career with the sounds he created for the new Star Trek.

    Score— As a fan of the original series, composer Michael Giacchino embraced the challenge of creating new music for Star Trek while preserving the spirit of Alexander Courage’s celebrated theme.

    Gene Roddenberry’s Vision— J.J. Abrams, Leonard Nimoy, previous Star Trek writers and producers, and scientific consultant Carolyn Porco describe and commend the optimistic and enduring vision of Gene Roddenberry.

    Deleted Scenes with Optional Commentary
    Spock Birth
    Klingons Take Over Narada

    Gag Reel— Bloopers featuring the entire principal cast.

    Disc 3:
    Digital Copy
    STAR TREK D-A-C Free Trial Game for XBOX 360
    Weblink to the STAR TREK D-A-C Free Trial Game for PC
    Weblink to the STAR TREK D-A-C Free Trial Game for PlayStation Network

    turtlex comments - Okay, every time I see "Narada" I am reading "Narnia"... makes for a whole different movie.

    Of all this, I'm looking forward to the stuff with Ben Burtt the most. I think he's just amazing and have admired him since his Star Wars days.

    Love me some Zachary Quinto. Just watched it last night (also saw it in the movies) still a great flick! Blown away again!

    Will have to watch it again with Hubby this weekend.

    Here’s a marketing partnership done right: Enterprise Rent-A-Car has released their first commercial featuring their Star Trek partnership, and it’s perfect.

    In the ad, employees beam up, offer the Starship Enterprise for rental (and get asked about mileage), practice their Klingon, and “yes” the Vulcans over the phone. One of them even walks into a cloaked ship. Ouch! (“Sheila, you HAVE to turn off the cloaking device”!)

    The ad is called “Business Is Going Boldly,” and features the phrase “Until We Can Beam You Up, We’ll Pick You Up.” In additional to commercials, you’ll see signage with the slogan on it on airport shuttles in NYC and Philadelphia, plus various other locations.

    We have to give them credit for this one. We’ve seen some terrible ads from Rocket Mortgage, which include an unfortunate shot of a Vulcan handing over his dirty laundry to his wife, and a more creative ad from Hewlett Packard Enterprise, focusing on new technology. But Enterprise Rent-A-Car wins for being the most creative as well as the funniest.

    Watch the clip below, and let us know what you think. Pick-up in the Beta Quadrant!

    I'm not sure why you think it's out on Tuesday. I just checked Amazon and there is no date listed. It would be a very quick turnaround as it came out July 22.

    What did they replace it with? I know it wasn't doing real brisk business nationally, but few movies are this year. Seems like not holding out at least until the anniversary was a waste of free marketing.
