To Boldly Go...

I had the great luck of getting a ticket to the newest incarnation in the Star Trek franchise. It was AWESOME! Needless to say, this horse won before even getting out of the gate and a sequel is probably in the works. But sequel or not, every movie needs a tagline to get the viewers' interest. Here are a few rejected taglines for the newest Star Trek feature.
"Star Trek- the guy who plays Sylar from Heroes is in it."
"Star Trek- Spock's in this one."
"Star Trek- yeah, I thought cars were gone in the twenty-third century, too, but hey! whatever works."
"Star Trek- EXPLOSIONS and lots of them!"
"Star Trek- JJ Abrams has got a lot of fingers in a lot of pies and is making a lot of money."
For some reason, these taglines weren't catchy enough.

Mind your own business, Mr. Spock. I'm sick of your half breed interference! Do you hear?

W00t! Did they explain the origin of Yoda?

Man, I am looking forward to this.

No, not yet. Maybe in the sequel.
I, too, am tired of Spock's half-breed interference.

Speaking of tagline, how about....

Star Trek. Not. The. Canon.

I can hear the screaming of Trekkies in the Harkonnens to the blade of Duncan Idaho!

No, not quite the canon, except for the red shirt.
