J.J. Abrams Talks On 'Star Trek'

Friday, January 30th, 2009

The challenge is to take the familiar—for better or worse—and embrace the elements that make it unique but be sure the master you're serving is the making of the most entertaining movie possible. You can't look backward and try to make sure that every decision you're making is true to the past. That's not to say that we weren't true to the past, but that wasn't our guiding principle."

The New Star Trek Looks,Pretty Good Boys,from the looks of it.
I am looking forward to see the USS Enterprize once again...its all part of my childhood memory. It will be orgasmic to see James T Kirk and Spock again...and to top that Leonard Nimoy is there!

Ive seen the movie it was awsome and the characters in the movie had the same personalitys like there other character doubles in the old Star Trek movies.Also listen to this, the old Spock is back and from the future to help Kirk and his crew.
