To Boldly Go...

Well, Paramount's finally starting to release shots from J.J. Abram's "reboot" of the Star Trek franchise to various web outlets, and the next issue of Entertainment Weekly's going to have more coverage.

Too bad the movie won't be out until next May.

This photo show the main cast on the new bridge set. From left to right: Anton Yelchin as Chekov, Chris Pine as James T. Kirk, Simon Pegg as Lt. Montgomery Scott, Karl Urban as Dr. McCoy, John Cho as Sulu and Zoe Saldana as Uhura. I'm very pleased with the updated uniforms, and think that Simon Pegg and Karl Urban look particularly well-suited to their roles.

You can see a round-up of the stills released so far, including several shots of Zachary Quinto as an uncannily Nimoy-esque Spock, here and here.

I'm excited about the film, but then, I was excited about the last Trek show – Enterprise – until I actually watched it....

Definitely looking forward to this one. Checked at the comic store yesterday and Femme Noir #3 isn't in but he'll call me when it gets there.
