"Mr. Atoz", a person affiliated with Ain't it Cool News, was able to see a bit of Star Trek XI which he kindly shares with eager Star Trek fans.
As reported by Ain't It Cool News, Mr. Atoz saw two different scenes from Star Trek XI; one concerning a group of freighters which appeared to be under attack, and the other about an exchange of hostilities between the Enterprise and the ship of the bad guy.
According to the source, "The first scene starts out with this massive convoy of freighters (may be refugees?), each towing two or three. even bigger cargo looking crates behind them with tractor beams. They look big and slow-moving." He goes on to explain that the Enterprise is to the rear of this group as a possible escort.
At some point, after these ships come out of warp, they are attacked. "Then it jumps back to space where all of a sudden there are these red streaks of light tearing right through the unshielded freighters and sending several of them up in flames. Everyone lurches out of warp." The scene then cuts to the view of the Enterprise Bridge. "View of the bridge, with everyone reacting in confusion and trying to find out what's going on. Looks like everyone's in cadet uniform except for the guy in the captain's chair who looks about late thirties, early forties."
The second scene that Mr. Atoz saw appears to be later in time, with "the first full battle scene. The Enterprise captain is still the captain (no sign of Kirk yet, I think he was on the bridge as just another cadet) and he's exchanging barbs with the villain over an audio link as their ships engage each other. The captain's saying how the bad guy's ship (the Sunfire? Sunflower?) can't protect him." The two ships attack each other.
