Star Trek

I MUST see this. The only thing I find strange is that this is a prequel to the original series. It's the younger Kirk, Spock, Scottie, etc.

So why does the ship look more advanced and high tech than anything even in the Next Generation series? Where are the blinking L.E.D.s and the lame ass computer voice and the doors that go "shooosh" when you walk through?




I like the guy they chose to be Spock. He's Sylar on Heroes. He really does kind of look like a young Leonard Nemoy but the guy they chose to be Kirk is too pretty. I see he's messing with alien chicks though. Right on Kirk!

What part of America is Scottie from?


I think it would be funny to have some guy there with a thick Steve Irwin type of Australian Accent working the con...

The enemy wessels are approaching! I noticed in the trailer they've got the John Cho (The guy who played Harold in the Harold & Kumar movies) playing Sulu.

Leonard Nimoy will also be playing the older version of Spock, I assume in a cameo.

Now we can find out what Spock really says about baby...spocks.

Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock

I hope someone saw that the other night because it's funny! Oh wait, here it is:

I don't know, but I'll have to ask Limey where in Scotland he's from, because I've never heard an accent like that before!
(yeah okay, I forgot - I was a Next Gen onwards fan, never thought of the original series.)

A nation sadly overlooked in the Star Trek genre - and I agree it would be super superb. Hang on, wasn't there one in the last (crap) series?

Again, I never thought of Uhura as anything other than American, but I suppose that's because all the cast were foreign to me. I certainly don't remember her saying, "Jambo, Captain!" or eating goat

Sulu is presently in the Australian jungle eating rice and beans. He's a favourite to win I'm a Celeb this year, although the British voting public is notoriously fickle. In fact I'm killing time until the next episode at 21.00.

A Steve Irwin style alien zoologist would be awesome.

"Crikey, captain, watch out for that Betelgeusian Blatterbug. Those antenna are chock full o' deadly poison, they'll leap right up at ya and wipe that nasty stuff all over ya face. You'd be a dead-set drongo to go tanglin' with some fearsome creachya like that... here, let me get a stick and poke it some... "

Thirty seconds later:

"Scotty, this is Kirk. Beam Irwin straight to sickbay. Yes, again."

They should get Hugh Jackman to play the role of the Australian space dude.

But if he had a nocturnal SNIKTulation, it could pierce the hull.
