New trailer, bad day for the Enterprise

So, some sporty thing happened in America, which had the nice side effect of a new Star Trek Into Darkness trailer! There are some interesting new bits of footage; have a watch:

Then we get to a very interesting exchange between Kirk and Harrison which plays over most of the trailer:

Kirk: Who the hell are you?
Harrison: I am better.

We are also given the rather ominous message, via a series of title cards (stuck together here), that:
