In the off chance you missed it and haven’t caught it yet, the new Star Trek spot during last night’s Super Bowl was actually fairly good, for a snippet. When I saw Chris Pine, I turned to Mrs. Pajiba-hyphenate and still muttered, “What a douchebag,” although her rejoinder was appropriate: “What the hell do you care? It’s Star Trek.” And she’s right about that — I have almost no interest in Star Trek, past, present or future. My only real issue with the movie, in general, is that Chris Pine is being asked to carry William Shatner’s jock-strap. And though he fares better in this teaser than he did in the long trailer, he’s still a cum stain on the pants of The Shatner.

As for the other Super Bowl movie ads: Angels and Demons, Fast & Furious and Angels and Demons, well, they weren’t even worth embedding. The 3D Monsters and Aliens ad was particularly disappointing — with or without 3D glasses, the movie looks like the ass-end of a Suck Monster.

Anyway, here’s that Star Trek spot … and, I think we’re done with the Super Bowl shenanigans for the day. We’re back to business as usual the rest of the day, including a the Box Office round-up, one of Dan’s brilliant “Lost” recaps, and Prisco’s The Uninvited review. Do stick around.

Meanwhile, here’s that Star Trek spot:
