There has been much speculation circulating the rumor mills with what direction the new Star Trek prequel will be heading. Well wait no more Trekmovie.com broke the story and posted images of the Official Star Trek novel's front and back cover. The back cover gives a pretty good glimpse of what this true prequel will be all about.

Trek.com goes on to say "Star Trek is a coming of age story for James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock who each deal with childhood struggles before coming together on the USS Enterprise, as very different people. They start at odds, but find a way to work together, along with the rest of the classic Trek crew, towards that friendship and family that has become legend.

They do this when faced with the crisis of Nero, a hell-bent for revenge Romulan from the future who is wreaking havoc across the Federation with his giant monster-like ship, the Narada. It seems that he has taken the destruction of his home planet Romulus personally, and is particularly pissed off at a certain pointy eared half-Vulcan whom he was working with in the 24th century before he came back in time and started cutting a swath across the galaxy."

The special effects in the trailor are awesome and if you dont mind watching new actors in classic roles then this movie is a must see. Finally,, I am excited about a Star Trek movie, and who knows maybe this film will be regarded as the one Star Trek movie (of many) on the must see list.

I love it....
24th century, no wonder spock looks dead.
I wonder how Romulus blows up and it would be cool if they could tie in Star Trek Nemis to it...

Romulus is destroyed by a supernova. it could have been prevented by a device the Vulcans had that could create a black hole that would suck the supernova in or something. The Vulcans, of course, turn the Romulans down, and Romulus is destroyed. Spock was on Nero's side for all of this though, so I don't see why he wants to kill Spock.
