    A 'Star Trek' is born:
    J.J. Abrams gives a glimpse

    Posted 14m ago


    Zachary Quinto will star as Spock and Chris Pine will play Captain. Kirk

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — J.J. Abrams is no Trekkie.

    The director and producer of the new Star Trek film, due in 2009, said he was always more of a Star Wars guy.

    "All my smart friends liked Star Trek. I preferred a more visceral experience," he tells Entertainment Weekly in its latest issue, on newsstands Friday. Abrams took on the Star Trek project in hopes of creating a film "that grabbed me the way Star Wars did," he says.

    He was also drawn to the franchise's idealism, he says.

    "I think a movie that shows people of various races working together and surviving hundreds of years from now is not a bad message to put out right now," he says. "In a world where a movie as incredibly produced as The Dark Knight is raking in gazillions of dollars, Star Trek stands in stark contrast. It was important to me that optimism be cool again."

    "My only regret is that the movie can't come out sooner," says Leonard Nimoy, who will don his pointy ears to play an elder Spock. "I think the world could use it."

    The younger Spock, played by Zachary Quinto, says Star Trek is a franchise "that offers hope for unity."

    But don't expect any unity with William Shatner. The actor won't make a cameo as Capt. Kirk, Abrams says.

    "I was such a huge fan of his, but we wrote a scene for him in the movie and it didn't feel right," Abrams says. "And he said to us — he said publicly — that doing a cameo didn't interest him. Which I totally appreciate. But we did try."

    So, so very very psyched for this movie. I think the casting is brilliant. Can't wait for a trailer.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

      While I always enjoy a good Trek, after looking at the cast and production stills something seems off. Roddenberry originaly pitched Star Trek as "Wagon Train in space" but with this cast it's looking more like "Dawson's Creek in space." (or maybe "Starfleet's Next Top Model")

      Acting abilities aside, I would think there would be more of a mix of ages in a command crew of a starship. It may work out so I will wait and see if the trailer eases my worries.

        I got no complaints about the new Kirk and Chekov.

            'Star Trek':
            An exclusive first look at the Enterprise

            Star Trek there are many things you cannot change. The Enterprise is a visual touchstone for so many people. So if you're going to do the Enterprise, it better look like the Enterprise, because otherwise, what are you doing?"

            Fans and other interested parties will get more looks at the new Enterprise when the first trailer arrives this Friday, attached to Quantum of Solace.

                        BAHAHAHAHHA! OMG, i wanna kick that little kid.

                        And after seeing the trailer, I didn't know the WB or Lucas was involved. Ugh. I'll watch but I have my heavy doubts. John Cho doesn't even remotely look like George Takei. Heck, they're not even the same kind of Asian.

                              Christian Bale doesn't look like Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, or George Clooney.

                              Daniel Craig doesn't look like Sean Connery, et al.

                              I'm used to it.
