Remember? Terminator: Salvation? Look, I know you guys have Star Trek on the brain today, but try to remember there will likely be another awesome movie coming out in two weeks, and there’s a new, 4-minute trailer for it which should do nothing to dampen your enthusiasm for it. It includes, as far as I can recall, the first footage of Star Trek‘s Anton Yelchin (Chekhov) as the young John Connor-babydaddy Kyle Reese, so there is a Trek connection if your insane fandom requires you to do and see nothing but Trek-related media all day.

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
