Here's a one-word title that sums up NuTrek: "Dumb."

Alright, so I don't love this rumored title, but come on. The abbreveation "STB" is 100% better than "STID"...leave out the "I" and, well, you can see what happens...

 

Besides, it's only a title. Judging the movie by the title is like saying you won't buy a disc because of ugly cover art. It's silly. Right now, I trust Simon Pegg based on everything he has said about the project. Until I have reason not to trust him, I will be hopeful about STB.

I like it but I agree with Sam in wishing that it would have been something more substantial.

I do think the title is a good indication that the story may be a bit more… explore-y.

I think Pegg has said this is a wholly original villain, so my thought is this is almost assuredly a new story, too.

Sigh. For twenty years now, Star Trek films have gone by one- or two-word titles (Generations, First Contact, Insurrection, Nemesis, Into Darkness), and that's the general trend in movies (look at the most recent Bond films), but it's very bland. Titles used to be more poetic (The Wrath of Khan, The Undiscovered Country, The Search for Spock, etc.), which gave the movies a grace they otherwise lack. (The same can be said for Star Trek episodes -- look to the original series for titles like The City on the Edge of Forever, or For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky; meanwhile, Voyager had nearly all one-word titles.)

 

I will wait to see the finished movie before judging it, but I am not encouraged by a one-word title.

 

I think it is the uprising of social media which has spurred an across-the-board increase in the use of one word (and two-word) titles.

 

Ya gotta make it easy for those hashtags...

Some acknowledgement of Nimoy in the third film would be great.
