There’s A Star Wars Reference In The New Star Trek Into Darkness Trailer


This is going to drive nerds nuts.

And just in case that one gets pulled…

Oh, J.J. Abrams.

    Is it supposed to be the ship going sideways through the crack? Because that scene reminded me more of Independence Day, honestly.

  • WheelchairNinja

    That or Scotty jumping at the giant fish. He *is* the comic relief character with the funny accent…

  • Han Solo

    “Punch it!”

  • Travis Fischer

    Oh, was that supposed to be it?

  • Carmen Sandiego

    That was used in the last Trek as well; I doubt that’s the reference.

  • Liz Wright

    Yeah, Pike totally said that in the first movie and no one got upset.

    Jim was definitely that one Starfleet cadet that said “Hold my beer and watch this!” While Bones stood by and counted down until the bleeding started.

    I’m a fan of both and I have no idea what the Star Wars reference in that trailer is supposed to be.

  • Robin Zalek

    I’m pretty sure it’s a TIE fighter reflected in the window during the screencapped section at the top of the article.

    I assumed it was the Falcon flying sideways??

    This looks like Watchmen: The Phantom Menace.

    I think it was the ship going through the narrow slot

    Oooh I get it, what is going to drive nerds nuts is trying to find the reference where there ISN’T one. At least not one obvious enough to get right away.

    Are the going to start trekking at some point in the near future?

  • Betty Windsor

    It was my understand that the Star Trek movies, were one big Star Wars reference….with Star Trek characters

    That could just as easily be a Lethal Weapon reference.

    I… wait, what?

    they said it’ll drive “nerds” nuts, not fans…

    Just before “all of you heard what happened in London”, there is a girl passing behind Cumberbatch that :
    a) could be dressed as the bounty hunter “Zam Wesell”, who appears in Episode II, but she doesn’t wear a silly hat…
    b) could definitely be dressed as “Visas Marr”, a sith lord in “the old republic” story but, as we all know, Miralukas don’t have eyes, and the girl passing seems to have some…

    I am ashamed…
