    Star Trek movie -- new photos, possible spoilers

    Any Star Trek fans out there? Entertainment Weekly ran a cover story last week about the new movie coming out next year. Lots of photos. A couple of plot details--so people who don't want to know anything about it may not want to read the story.

    Story -- 'Star Trek' movie: Inside scoop! | Star Trek | Cover Story | Movies | Entertainment Weekly | 1

    I'm an admitted Trekker, although I was too young (actually not even born) for the original series. Initially I had some hang-ups when I heard this was going to be sort of a prequel/reboot, but now I think this actually looks like it could be pretty good.

    Yes, sir. J.J. Abrams is director and producer. Carlton Cuse (another Lost producer) is also involved. One of my lingering hang-ups is that it was written by the same guys who wrote Transformers, but we'll see...

    I agree, I'm not remotely into Star Trek but I think this will be a fun movie.

    Not a Trek fan at all, but I'll probably give this one a shot, depending on how it turns out. J.J. Abrams is the man.

    Re: Star Trek movie -- new photos, possible spoilers

    I think this movie could be more popular with people who are not Star Trek fans than with people who are. It will make money, but the die-hard Trek fans will hate it.

    One of the problems right off is that the movie lumps characters together as cadets who are not even remotely the same age. It was established in the two-part old-series episode "The Menagerie" that Spock was serving as third-in-command of the Enterprise almost a full 20 years before the start of the old series. It is likely that Spock is as much as 40 years older than Kirk. (Vulcans in Trek are long-lived and don't age as rapidly)

    Personally, I have two problems with the movie. First, the movie leaves out the character who was established as Kirk's "best friend" in the second pilot ("Where No Man Has Gone Before"). Second, the actor that Abrams has playing Sulu (who is Japanese) is not Japanese, but Korean. I met a lot of orientals when I attended ISU, and I could easily tell the Korean students from the Japanese students, and so on. I think this reinforces the American stereotype that "all orientals look alike". It also makes about as much sense as having Matt Damon play James Bond.

    I probably will not see the movie.

    Looks good to me. Never been a die hard but always enjoyed the shows when I flipped to them on TV and I liked a couple of the movies quite a bit. I think any mix of sci fi and action is a good show.

    Huge Trekkie checking in. I can't wait for the series restart, hopefully it will breathe some much needed life into the franchise.
