Comments for after you watch the teaser
This looks ... odd.

The design of the ship and the music both seem to me to have a strong Klingon feel to them.

I know what you mean about being odd and the music not being a good fit.  Unless the new program is a cartoon I don't get a very good feeling out of that trailer.  It looked slapped together as an afterthought.

It looks like they based that ship off of some concept art for the Starship Enterprise for the Star Trek Phase II series that ended up getting turned into Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

Yeah, only about the tail end of the music seemed to fit the general pattern the series uses. But if the rest indicates it's going to be more exciting than the stuff I've usually seen of it (TOS and most of TNG) then I'm all for it. Make it at least as riveting as Doctor Who and we're in business.
