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....
