Handstalking (Part VII) by Atsadifish Handstalking (Part VII) by Atsadifish
EDIT: Okay, so this is becoming insanely popular :O_o: I'm glad you're all interested in this, but I'm aware you must all think I'm a crazy obsessed nutcase for doing it. It's not true! I only wanted to have something more substantial to make my point with besides capslock and a lot of exclamation marks ^^; I was just tired of all the circular debates. Now everyone thinks I'm a basket case :roll:



Part I | Part II | Part III | Part IV | Part V | Part VI | Part VII

Yes, I did more. Three reasons why:
1. People turfing up photos of Cumberbatch’s hands that resemble the trailer’s mystery hand
2. This new movie still [SPOILER?], which is rather incriminating
3. This tweet from someone who has seen the second trailer [Spoiler? Maybe?]

BONUS
Cumberbatch’s villain being the one touching hands with Spock through the glass (while in the brig, apparently) makes even less sense when you think about the voiceover going over that scene in the trailer:

“Is there anything you would not do... for your family?”

And makes even less sense when you take this into account too ;) You can look it up on Google Translate: I did, totally matches.


Thanks for reading! :aww:

Ok I know this comment is coming a bit late, since we all know who the hand belongs to by now....

But I've only just seen this and I just want to say how great it is! I love how much detail you've gone into and how concise your analysis is, I wish I was half as observant as you :)
Don't know if you've seen Sherlock but you would certainly make a great detective! :D

These charts are BRILLIANT. I'm an in-fandom reporter writing an article for the Daily Dot about Star Trek trailer theories, and would love to feature them! Sadly they are probably too large to put inside the post, but I would like to link to them within the article. Would that be OK? If you're not comfortable with this, please email me at gavia@thedailydot.com. :)

That's fine that you link back to them, and I can't thank you enough for actually asking me; you're the first, out of the five or so places I've seen these featured :roll:

I'd appreciate it if you didn't refer to me as any combination of 'rabid' or 'obsessed', because it's not true and I'm getting a bit fed up with people taking these 'studies' out of context. Apart from that, feel free to mention these; I look forward to reading your article :)

(I'll email all this to you as well in case you're not on deviantART often ;))

It Might Not Make Any Sense That Its Cumberbatch's Hand But Look At The Sleeve , Who Had On Black , NOT Kirk Only Harrison. & How Did Spock Get Inside The Glass , When Harrison Was In There & They Are Clearly Monitoring Him ! I Refuse To Believe That Spock Is Going To Die , He's Too Gourgeous !

It not only doesn't make sense for it to be Cumberbatch's hand, but I've actually proven that it's Chris Pine's. And as for Kirk not wearing blacks, please see this. I'm sure there's more than one glass wall within the Enterprise for Kirk and Spock to be meeting through. Spock won't die; that would be franchise suicide. If he does, he'll be back. You seen "Wrath of Khan" and "Search for Spock"? ;)

I Just Dont Want To Believe That There Will Ever Be A Chance That Spock Will Die. So Are You Positive That He Wont Die Or Is There Still A Chance ? :(

Atsadifish Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013  Student General Artist
Since I've not read the script, I can't say there's no chance. I can say that Spock has been killed off before (and resurrected). I can say that if they do actually kill Spock and he stays dead that that will be the end of the franchise. I also think it's more likely that the main character who's going to come closest to dying will be Kirk ;)

Sakurara Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012
Well, they're not very good fans apparently. There are plenty of good shots of Sherlock's hands and really, they look nothing like the mystery hand.

I also don't get why they'd want the hands to be Cumberbatch's...

:iconatsadifish:
Atsadifish Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012  Student General Artist
Haha, so true. My sister and I got Sherlock for Christmas and just watching it it is so obvious that the hand is not Cumberbatch's. I weep for those who presume otherwise.

Who can possibly know? Fanaticism?

Sakurara Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013
Some people are apparently blind. And 'sides, why would it be Cumberbatch's hand? I mean, he's the villain. Why would Spock give him the goodbye reserved basically to family members? That wouldn't make any sense! And what Cumberbatch says during the scene, "What are you ready to do for your family?" or whatever, doesn't really make sense if it wasn't, you know, a family member or someone as close as one. Like Kirk is to Spock.

This comment became a lot longer than I meant.

Simple logic would dictate that there is only one person whose hand it could be; very little irks me other than people being irrational -_-

I just love you so much for making this analysis! Of course it's Kirk's hand! Uhura or Carol Marcus has nothing on this EPIC (B)romance!

Though the mirror scene which seems to be in reverse from the wrath of Khan because Kirk's hand was on the mirror first...is that right or I am just delirious from lack of sleep.

I don't know what is going on anymore. Why is May 2013 so far away~ Again, Thanks for clearing things up!

No no, you are correct; it is in reverse from Wrath of Khan. Makes sense when you think about the synopsis mentioning a sacrifice Kirk has to make... ;)

Dat hand fetish. I WANT TO GO TO IMAX AND WATCH THE 9 MINUTES OF THE MOVIE...but Im stuck just watching the trailer. It's funny im going to see The Hobit, but at the same time Im going to be like....but I thought I was going to see Star Trek ID......f*

Also dedication is best! Really cool set up theory. Im not a huge fan of star trek for the old, but I know a few things due to a trek fan that's a freind of mine. The Movies? I adore these SO MUCH!

I'm impressed and amused at the same time. An argument over whose hand the 'Mystery Hand' belongs to? Really fans? Really?

But seriously, I enjoyed reading your theory. I can see that you've put a lot of effort in making it. I hope it's true. :)
