Must Watch: Brand New TV Spot for Star Trek!

Paramount has unveiled a new TV spot for Star Trek today, to go along with the epic new trailer we saw a few weeks ago and the Super Bowl TV spot we saw back in February. There are a couple of new scenes and some footage we haven't seen yet, which is always exciting, but I'm not particularly a fan of this TV spot. I think Paramount has officially kicked off their big marketing campaign that will get non-geek mainstream audiences interested in Trek and the choice of music in this trailer is their first indication that they want more than just the nerdy audiences. It's an understandable desire, of course, but will they pull it off?
Watch the brand new TV spot for Star Trek:
A chronicle of the early days of James T. Kirk and his fellow USS Enterprise crew members.
Star Trek is directed by J.J. Abrams (of "Lost" and Mission: Impossible III) and is written by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (of The Island, Mission: Impossible III, Transformers, and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen). This is the 11th movie in the Star Trek universe, following most recently Star Trek: Nemesis in 2002. Star Trek is set to land in theaters everywhere on May 8th, 2009 this summer!
