Well, it turns out that there's a better AR application promoting the new Star Trek movie, easily accessible over the net. Created using Total Immersion's D'Fusion, this one let you explore the decks of the Enterprise and fire its weapons by pointing a decent looking marker at your web camera:

Looked very promising, but after installing the viewer (*cough*flartoolkit needs no installer) it bombed my Mac's Firefox.

Any PC's out there with better luck?
