>> Hey, what's going on? We're the guys from The 404 we're here at the Lincoln 13 checking out the world premier of Star Trek, The Movie.
>> Now, Star Trek is a reboot of the venerable Star Trek franchise. It's directed by JJ Abrams and a lot of fans are really excited about it.
>> You know who's not excited about it? Us! Because we've never seen the TV show before, let's go talk to some fans that have. How long have you guys been waiting for?
>> He's been waiting his whole life for this moment.
>> You're here for Star Trek sir. You're looking good. You're just like a classy Star Trek fan. What makes you come out the night before?
>>Well, I honestly just wanted to make myself feel better and I came all -- fifty people from meetup.com were all here.
>> So, earlier I saw you here with a girl. What happened to her and how did you manage to getting a girl here to Star Trek?
>> The trick is tell the girl that you're here to see like the Notebook or a chick play, you got to lie.
>> Now, I'm not going to lie, you don't really look like a diehard Star Trek fan, but still what makes you want to come out the night before?
>> I'm unemployed right now. I don't really have anything else going on.
>> Lesley [assumed spelling], may I ask you a question. What does it feel like being the only female at this entire movie theater?
>> I feel like a true Star Trek princess.
>> I can only imagine how many phone numbers you will be thrown at today.
>> Well, we're married.
>> We're married. Watch it.
>> Oh-uh, careful guys. You heard it first. Lesley is married, hands off the merchandise.
>> Beat me up, Scottie. That's not even in the Star Trek, right in...
>> I don't have them. ^M00:01:36 [ Music ] ^M00:01:40
>> David Day [assumed spelling], what do you think of the movie?
>> I thought it was awesome. It was even better than I thought it was going to be.
>> And so, what do you guys think?
>> It was great, couple of pot holes and I've fell in, my legs still in that pot hole.
>> I personally love the special effects. I couldn't believe how much claymation that they had used.
>> And you could explain this to me. How did he beam from the ship onto the other planet? I'm not exactly sure how the mechanics work on that. You seem a little bit more you know into it than I am, like can you explain?
>> Well, see what happened was you have to postulate that the gravitational pull of earth...
>> It was unbelievable. It was like nonstop action, really, you know what I really personally think it was better than all those new Star Wars movies.
>> Using the law of syllogism, take the exponent from Spock and apply it to the integrated -- integral that could take you to the ship is quite easy. I mean you have to look at the whole thing, but that's really like you know...
>> Yeah, it makes perfect sense, it makes perfect sense.
>> So, we just got on the Star Trek, I think it's a great film, Jeff.
>> Yeah, I'm Trekky now man. That film was ridiculous, it keep the crap out of all those Star Wars movies.
>> Guys, I got to tell you I enjoyed it so much. I just bought tickets for tomorrow's midnight showing, I got to go stand in line because they are already lining up there, so I'll see you guys later. ^M00:02:57 [ Music ]
