Together with the release of The Hobbit, a 9-minute preview of Star Trek: Into Darkness was released in IMAX theaters worldwide. However, this trailer was banned in Malaysia for unspecified reasons.
This is the latest example of the Malaysian government's draconian policy of media censorship, with other movies such as Daredevil, Hellboy, and Schindler's List being banned for unspecified or nonsensical reasons.
We, fans of Star Trek and freedom of speech, hereby demand that the relevant authorities in Malaysia:
1. Explain the action (optional)
2. Retract the ban and reinstate the missing trailer in all theaters immedietly
3. Apologize and reassure the people of its freedoms
