As far as Stevie is concerned, anything that wasn't adapted by either James Blish, his missus & her indoors or Vonda McIntyre never happened.

Their 1998 hit, Intergalactic, contains the line:

"...like a pinch from to the neck from Mister Spock"

Therefore, in the ST universe, The Beastie boys are either time travellers or members of the Q continuum.

Or they could have been on a certain bus in San Francisco in 1986, and been impressed with Spock's approach to music criticism.

That Mr. Spock Beastie Boys reference is nothing.

The opening lyrics to Ch-Check it Out are -

All you Trekkies and TV addicts
Don't mean to dis, don't mean to bring static
All you Klingons in the fucking house
Grab your backstreet friend and get loud

...and they're all dressed in OT uniforms in the video -

I'd pay good money to see a Star Trek film that used Underground Resistance's The Final Frontier on the soundtrack. Not that they'd ever allow it.

New trailer - unlisted on youtube for some reason.

Still manage to get arguments about future monetary systems and racism within the first batch of comments though.

Good spot, Steve!

You know - that didn't look nearly as bad as the first trailer made it out to be. It still looks miles away from "real Trek" (coming next year to TV hopefully) but it looked far less po-faced than Into Darkness and all the better for it.

Much better trailer for sure.  This current incarnation is a very different beast to the one we grew up with but that is not necessarily a completely bad thing.  Enough to go screaming out to see it?  Nah.  Still looks like video fodder.

The comments under the video really are interesting though, you're right.  I'd never really paid much any attention to youtube comments before.  The level of sophistication, the clarity of thought, the wit and satire, ... Ah who am I kidding?  Please tell me those people don't breed.

Some of the newer spots spoil a fairly major plot point, and was tweeted about by Comic Book Resources if that sort of thing bothers you.
