Oh yeah BABY!

What has me geeked out and almost as excited as my upcoming week off from work?


I am not technologically advanced enough to rip it from the site and embed it here, so I'll just have to give you the person I see as the best retro fit for the character, Zachary Quinto.

Yeah, I'm biased because of Heroes, but even thought it looks like a great cast, none of the others just scream a younger version of the original like Zach does.
In the trailer you see just a bit of Simon Pegg of Shaun of the Dead fame as Scotty. I think he's going to be a hoot for sure!
(Brace yourself for Star Trek Geek analysis)
There was a development with Start Trek: The Next Generation (TNG) that never seemed to be able to happen with the original series until their latter movies. In the original series, you got a feel for the characters, but it was flat. Once TNG got its pace, the writers were able to infuse real characteristics and fluid traits that the constant viewer came to know and attribute to the character. Much like a soap opera, a constant viewer could see things in the later episodes that are from earlier episodes.
The new prequel movie seems to be able to take the character development and make the characters more interactive than the original series was probably able to do.
I can't wait...
May 8.... find me off work and in line for opening night!
Now where is Harry Potter....

Because of the youthfulness of the cast- and because they are all sorta cute- this movie is starting to be called Star Trek 90210.

There is even a fake trailer, where they superimposed the 90210 music over the real Star Trek trailer.

Too funny!

I'm looking forward to this . . . finally. It took me a while to come around. It was the same when Daniel Craig was named the new Bond - I took a while to warm up to him but then the movie came out and I was in love. I've warmed to the Star Trek movie, so I really hope it meets expectations! My wedding anniversary is May 1 and our anniversary gifts to each other will probably be Star Trek tickets.

The way you feel? Is the way I am feeling right now about TOMORROW - TWILIGHT BABY!! I am going to the 12:25pm show tomorrow with 4 co-workers, and have been invited to go again tomorrow night with 2 more who didn't have enough vacation to take off tomorrow! As soon as I get it out of my system, though, I am all about this Star Trek movie. I love Zachary Quinto - this movie wouldn't work without him.

When's the next Larry the Cable Guy movie come out? The trilogy needs to be completed.

I will take the day off and drive up from where ever I'm living to go with you!!

I am, humbly, following Lea in the Twilight craze, although obviously NOT playing hookie from work!!
