Plus more shots from JFX Online.


1. ShawnP - January 17, 2008

That’s friggin’ awesome!

2. subatoi - January 17, 2008

Cool! You can see Cho with the Sulu haircut :)
And does Quinto use these big black glases just to hide his half shaved weird eyebrows, or did he use them before ST?

3. Adam - January 17, 2008

I’m starting to see Pine as Kirk…especially in the picture where he is behind Quinto.

4. Commodore Redshirt - January 17, 2008

…of the cast together at another movie and off the set,
but hmmm


5. Tim Handrahan - January 17, 2008

Quinto is looking more and more like Nimoy. Karl Urban has the McCoy look going. Casting has been amazing! Can’t wait!

6. Adam - January 17, 2008

I don’t remember seeing him with the glasses before filming began…
You might be right – trying to hide the eyebrows

7. Iowagirl - January 17, 2008

The more I see them, the less I see them as Kirk and Spock.

8. Skippy 2k - January 17, 2008

So they allready got to see the trek preview with Cloverfield!? ;-) Cool nice to see some pics of them together. Looking forward to seeing the trailer and movie (Cloverfield) tomorrow.

9. J.D. Lee - January 17, 2008

Im so excited!!!

10. TJ Trek - January 17, 2008

This is cool. I almost didn’t recognize Keith Urban, But there he is looking a bit like mccoy would have if he had been australien.

And yes on hiding the eyebrows. Although a man that is willing to wear glasses like that. Gota give him respect. And by the way, he did wear glasses like that as Sylar in HEROES (watch SIX MONTHS AGO from season one)

Chris Pine is looking like the pretty boy soap star. But if his acting chops are at least as good as Shatners was at the time, then he should be fine.

And of course Seldana (Did I spell that write?) she is a beuty. An uhura for the new age

JJ really is a nerd, and he looks every bit the part

11. PaoloM - January 17, 2008

Urban smiling? I can’t believe it ;-)

12. J.D. Lee - January 17, 2008

I don’t know about you guys but…

when I saw that first pic of quinto and pine I got chills.


13. James Heaney - Wowbagger - January 17, 2008

Zoe Saldana… lookin’ good!

14. Rod - January 17, 2008

10. TJ Trek … that would be Karl Urban, not Keith, and he’s from New Zealand, not Australia!

Cheers …

15. James Heaney - Wowbagger - January 17, 2008

Shoot. Didn’t mean to post just the one sentence. Frack.

Anyhow, the meat of my post was that I got chills. These actors have no idea what they’ve gotten into… but we might well be watching this men and women individually and as a cast for the next twenty years. And, for the first time, I can actually envision that seeing this pics. Thanks, as ever, Tony.

16. TrekMadeMeWonder - January 17, 2008

I like that Pine looks to be just a little shorter (Sorry Chris – no offense.)
Just as Shatner was not the typical tall leading man too. They are both (obviously) very good looking. But it helps when the villan in the story has that “little bit more” over the hero.

Too bad Lindsay (not ST related) is looking 30’ish already. Yikes!

17. ShawnP - January 17, 2008

It sure looks like Urban is sporting some pointy Trek sideburns…

18. TrekMadeMeWonder - January 17, 2008

12. J.D. Lee
[I don’t know about you guys but…
when I saw that first pic of quinto and pine I got chills.]

And he has his hands behind his back too! Looks like Quinto is still in character, I hope!

19. J.D. Lee - January 17, 2008

Oh no! Pine is taller than Quinto111!!!!!

not Canon, not Canon!!!111111



20. AJ - January 17, 2008

Yes. Spock will have glasses and an oily pompadour in STXI.

21. toddk - January 17, 2008

just look at how uhura appears to be holding the torch of liberty in her hand! bet no one else saw it! :)

22. theARE - January 17, 2008

Pine is a bit too blond / ginger-ish for my liking. Kirk’s hair started off dark and got a little lighter as he got older.

I think that Urban’s looking good for McCoy though.

23. PaoloM - January 17, 2008

#18 “And he has his hands behind his back too! Looks like Quinto is still in character, I hope!”

Yes, Quinto is surely posing as Spock. You know, impersonating a cold blooded, logic driven vulcan should be very funny :-)

24. trektacular - January 17, 2008

For everyone who hated TNG for supposedly replacing the TOS crew back in the ’80’s, what do you all think now about their real replacements?

25. AJ - January 17, 2008

24: I won’t know until I see the flick. But, Quinto sure looks the part.

Urban looks good, too, but I cannot get Eomer from LOTR out of my head.

Chekhov needs a Monkees wig.

26. diabolk - January 17, 2008

Pine is the only person who could have played a uyoung Kirk and look so much like him. Same for Quinto as Spock. But Zoe… although beautiful, just doesn’t have the figure needed. Oh well, maybe they”ll give her some padding in the right places?

27. J.D. Lee - January 17, 2008

28. AJ - January 17, 2008

Aint it Cool has some quick opinions about the trailer in their “Two Tons Of CLOVERFIELD Reviews Rampage Onto The Site!!” section. The Big E seems to look cool.

29. jon1701 - January 17, 2008


Karl Urban certainly has the look of McCoy.

30. Captain Luke Vaz - January 17, 2008


I agree. I am amazed. The same hair cut, and the pointy sideburns!

31. Obsessed With Film » STAR TREK away mission to see CLOVERFIELD! - January 17, 2008

[…] source – trek movie, iesb […]

32. Smike van Dyke - January 17, 2008

It’s to cool to be true…these people just look amazing. I hardly can believe that after all these years the original will be reborn! Can’t wait to see them in uniforms and on the set…

33. CanuckLou - January 17, 2008

Very cool. Urban really seems to have captured the look of McCoy. It is weird see Kirk taller than Spock though.

All those pointed sideburns and side parts gave me chills.

34. Admiral_Bumblebee - January 17, 2008

Clark Kent was at the Cloverfield premiere??? ;)

35. Pragmaticus - January 17, 2008

What I want to know is, where the heck is Simon Pegg?

36. Paul - January 17, 2008

Hey, Chekov, what’s up with the metrosexual-gay-prostitute, greased, curly, combed-up haircut? :P

But other than that, it’s mightily cool. Pine looks cute indeed. And Sulu reminds me the one from Animated series. :D

37. jon1701 - January 17, 2008

35 Yeah, I was thinking that. Bit disappointing.

Probably just not in town, or may have prior engagement. Eric Bana is not there I either.

38. Jupiter1701 - January 17, 2008

Call me strange, but that top picture of Quinto somehow reminds me of a young Gene Roddenberry. I think it’s his hair and the shape of his head from that point of view.

39. Cervantes - January 17, 2008

Don’t know about you guys that ‘got the chills’, but I wonder if Stanky ‘got the shivers’… ;)

Alas, no shot of Simon Pegg, I mean ‘Scotty’, I mean Simon Pegg…

And has everyone read the interesting ‘Cloverfield’ review at ?

40. Captain Hackett - January 17, 2008

Hey folks!

There is much more pics of new ST crew in this link:

41. Mikey Doofer - January 17, 2008

Looking good guys, keep it coming!!!!

42. Cheve - January 17, 2008

I’m not sure Pine is taller than Quinto. It looks more like a perspective thing.

43. Captain Hackett - January 17, 2008

Oops I did not see the IESB link at the end of article. I am sorry, Anthony!

44. Stanky McFibberich - January 17, 2008

re: 39. Cervantes – January 17, 2008
“Don’t know about you guys that ‘got the chills’, but I wonder if Stanky ‘got the shivers’… ;) ”

The Hee-Bee-Jee-Bees…

Actually, my only reaction was, ‘big deal – shows nothing about the movie’

How about some shots of the cast clipping their toenails —- together.

45. Pragmaticus - January 17, 2008

Quinto is taller than Pine. It’s been established many times.

46. Dr. Phil - January 17, 2008

Zoe. Neelix. Mess hall. Now.

47. Urban - January 17, 2008

Look… the fakes are out…

This is so NOT going to be TREK

48. Matt-net - January 17, 2008

My god Quinto looks like Spock – especially the way he’s standing with his arms behind his back – I wonder if he’s picked that up from standing that way on set?

49. CAPAirSAR - January 17, 2008

I just had one of those “this is going to be awesome” moments.

Call me an optimist.

50. SPB - January 17, 2008


Now I’m really starting to get psyched. They all look GREAT.

51. Avindair - January 17, 2008

#16: Yeah, I agree. Lindsay is looking rough.

Slow down, girl. Slow down.

Cast looks great. Sure, Zoe seems very scrawny for Uhura, after Nichols fantastic figure, but that’s nit-picking. And Urban? I don’t know why, but I get the sense that he’s going to freaking rock as McCoy. :)

The casting team did a great job.

52. Phil 123 - January 17, 2008

Star Treking, across the universe,
On the starship Enterprise under Captain Kirk
Star Treking, across the universe,
Always going forward never in reverse…. (?)

well the song is nearly true

but seriously, they look good!!

53. Imrahil - January 17, 2008

Wow. Urban is the big shock of the group–he REALLY looks like McCoy. And…it doesn’t look like Quinto is taller than Pine to me:

I’d have liked to see Scotty here as well. Alas.

Greenwood looks like he’s channeling Isaac Asimov with those huge grey sideburns…

54. Ralph - January 17, 2008

Hey, did anyone check out the first pictures of a uniform on JFX Online? She is wearing a baseball cap. Look to the left under HOT POST. StarFleet Uniforms.

55. Balock - January 17, 2008

he didn’t invite the new E?

56. JBS - January 17, 2008

Ralph, linked to that in a much older article.

57. YUBinit - January 17, 2008

#7 iowagirl

I agree. This aint them, and this aint that.

58. JBS - January 17, 2008

I wonder if Simon Pegg didn’t show up because they want to keep his hair color a secret? Is Scotty blond or brunette? The mystery continues….

Looks like Quinto is having trouble getting out of his character. Nimoy said he had that problem too – talking and acting like Spock off the set.

Didn’t recognize Urban, had to check the caption. I thought he looked like Grundberg at first.

They all look so different without their stuble.

59. ShawnP - January 17, 2008

#36 – My guess is the that Yelchin grew his hair out for the traditional Chekov mop hairdo, not that he’s trying to be metrosexual. Pure conjecture on my part, of course.

60. ShawnP - January 17, 2008

…and that Yelchin is wearing his hair up off the set. He may not be fond of the Monkees hairdo.

61. YUBinit - January 17, 2008

#58 Perhaps, but Nimoy didn’t look so snotty doing it.

62. Cervantes - January 17, 2008

Off topic, but to do with ‘Cloverfield’ –

I’ve read a couple of reviews now that say that the Michael Giacchino End Titles music ‘ROAR!’ is fantastic, and is described as huge, epic, and instantly iconic. This sure bodes well for the new Trek soundtrack… :)

63. Biodredd - January 17, 2008

“JJ Abrams brought his new Trek crew to the premiere of Cloverfield on Thursday.”

Unless these are pics from the future, this either hasn’t happened yet or the Premiere was on WEDNESDAY night!

64. AJ - January 17, 2008


These pics are from a 23rd century retro-theme party at Starfleet Academy. Scotty’s at the bar.

65. steve - January 17, 2008

62- One of the things I’m looking forward to in the new movie is the music, should be such a change from the days when the guy who USED to run the Trek franchise would tell the composers that the music shouldn’t call attention to itself!

66. Jackson Roykirk - January 17, 2008

So, are you basing your “snotty” characterization on a single photo??

What about this — he doesn’t look “snotty” here:

nor here:

Nor here:

One ‘caught-in-the-moment’ photograph isn’t enough to convince me that a person is snotty. I don’t know the man, but he seems to act like every other normal hollywood actor, in my oipinion.

67. yellowdogsc - January 17, 2008

Not canon, not canon, Spock never wore glasses. I will be sitting at home pouting when this thing comes out.

68. RaveOnEd - January 17, 2008

Karl Urban just looks incredibly happy to be involved in Trek, from looking at the pics. He looks like he’s having the time of his life now, playing an iconic role in something he watched as a kid.

Just that happy and contented look.

69. Buckaroohawk - January 17, 2008

These photos look so promising! Even though the actors aren’t in costume, they really seem to look like the characters they’ll be portraying. Quinto’s clean-shaven and stolid looking. Pine has lightened his hair color a bit. And Karl Urban’s resemblence to DeForrest Kelley is just plain spooky! Too bad none of the paparazzi got a shot of the three of them together.

I’ve also had a thought about the much-discussed teaser, but the thread on that page has grown far too long, so I’ll post it here. Of course, I haven’t seen it, but much has been made about the Enterprise being built on land instead of in orbit, using what seem to be contemporary tools instead of futuristic ones. What if the teaser isn’t meant to represent the “real” Enterprise (the 23rd century one the characters actually serve upon in the movie), but the MOVIE ITSELF? As if the production crew is saying “we’re building the Enterprise from the ground up for our cast and crew to play around in.” In a sense, the film is “Under Construction,” so maybe the teaser is a representation of that idea and what’s seen is meant to be taken figuratively instead of literally.

I’m not trying to hijack this thread into a “Teaser Comments, Part 2.” The idea just struck me and I wanted to put it out there. We now return you to your regularly scheduled thread, already in progress.

70. 1701 over Gotham City - January 17, 2008

#68 Holy crap, WHAT is that uniform pic?!?!?! Surely not… Gestapo Starfleet??? C’MON!!!
Perhaps that’s a HQ uniform or something… hats??? yuck. Hope that’s not a ship uniform.

As for the pics, Zoe is a flawless choice for Uhura!!!
Hmmm… no pointy sideburns. Ah well…

Love Quino with his arms behind his back!!
Still can’t see Urban as McCoy…
Cho looks great!!
Nothing to do with the film, but still a nice treat to see ’em in one spot!

71. Olympus1979 - January 17, 2008

My GOD Quinto looks EXACTLY like a young Nimoy in that picture, its incredible!!!!

And I would say most of the cast fit their roles very, very nicely.

I love the look of these guys, now lets hope for a great movie!!

72. T'Lera - January 17, 2008

Wow…they have a really good caster. They all look the same…

73. tiberius - January 17, 2008

#22. “Pine is a bit too blond / ginger-ish for my liking. Kirk’s hair started off dark and got a little lighter as he got older.”

Ummmmm…..did you have a colour TV growing up? Go back and check out Kirk’s hair in TOS – blonde.

By ST:TMP it was pretty dark (new hair for the Shat, presumably) and then was kind of all over the place. As they cut the budgets for the films, I’m glad they never went el-cheapo on Shat’s wig. It looks fab. in every film! With the possible exception of Generations – THAT was the real problem with that film!

74. 1701 over Gotham City - January 17, 2008

76. Shatner’s hair was Never THAT Blonde. Pine could stand a rinse of color through it.

75. Jupiter1701 - January 17, 2008

My super-secret CIA spy imaging software has determined that Chris Pine has precisely 5.89 percent more eyebrow hairs than Bill Shatner.

My God, I wish JJ would just try to be a little more respectful of canon.

76. SPB - January 17, 2008


Check out the first 2 seasons of TOS… Kirk was practically a blonde, especially Season Two. His hair got darker in Season 3 (bad wigs) and in TMP (even worse).

It’s called an “imagination,” people. Use it.

77. YUBinit - January 17, 2008

#66 Oh joy another “give it to me whatever just call it Star Trek”. No, not just that one image but several showing a range from snotty to smug. Just doesn’t have the face for a stoic vulcan without looking smug to me. And no he doesn’t look like Nimoy enough… just slanty eyes. Nose and lips are all wrong. Hadn’t seen an actor yet outside of Nimoy playing a vulcan that didn’t look snotty. And apparently the Enterprise producers felt the same because there was a strong presumption about it written into the premise.

Can’t help but think of Cloverfield in the way Eddie Izzard did the Neil Armstrong bit of the monster suit walking past the camera with the moon landing. LOL But I’ll be skipping this one for sure… shaky camera, no rhyme or reason except to show people reacting to a thing, no story that I’ve heard about so far, and certainly no ending. Don’t know about some of you but I like a story that has a beginning, a middle, and an end without bilking me for the next installment at the theater. Don’t care to watch big production home movies. Too much “reality” tv as it is without wasting time having it mimicked in the theater. Reason for “reality” tv… don’t need talent to write it.

78. AJ - January 17, 2008

Karl Urban ditched the NZ accent for an American one?

79. Pragmaticus - January 17, 2008

Best tidbits from the interviews:

Karl Urban confirming that we will hear Bonesisms in the film.
Chris Hemsworth saying that he filmed scenes on a “deck” (bridge, perhaps?)

80. sean - January 17, 2008

I hope they anchored Zoe to something, if there’s a strong wind she might blow over!

81. Vulcan Soul - January 17, 2008

Funky grandfather glasses ;)

82. SPB - January 17, 2008

Nope, no Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders here, folks!

Considering almost everyone else is happy with Quinto’s casting, you are most decidedly in the minority, YUBinit. Must be a fun club.

83. T'Lera - January 17, 2008


Hey, stop obsessing over details.

I’m the weird one, teaching my whole school the Vukcan salute and my science class Klingon.

Did you notice that Kirk and Spock are even really close together just like in TOS?


84. AJ - January 17, 2008


This is not Enterprise. Vulcans come off as snotty and smug in Enterprise because the characters are supposed to be that way. As for the actors, Quinto has come off as positively generous and polite.

I think Quinto is channeling Spock for the camera to give us starving fans a good laugh.

85. newman - January 17, 2008

I’d have to say that Urban has definitely captured the McCoy look.

86. Michael Hall - January 17, 2008

*Sigh* What I happen to see are photos of a thoughtful, serious young actor attending a movie premiere. Why anyone would choose to typify his attitude, posture, jawline, lips, or sideburns as “snotty” with no first-hand experience of the individual is mystifying beyond belief.

And yes, to these (admittedly aging) eyes he looks remarkably like a young Leonard Nimoy–certainly, as close as we could reasonably hope for short of requiring a working professional to submit to plastic surgery for the sake of performing a role in a motion picture. Sheesh.

87. DavidJ - January 17, 2008

Wow, I’m amazed at how much that haircut has completely TRANSFORMED Urban’s appearance. He doesn’t look anything like the dark and gritty guy I’ve seen in other pics. He actually looks like a warm and friendly guy now! lol

And Pine looks good too. But while his hair looks LIGHT enough for a first season Kirk, I don’t care for how RED it is. I’d rather they have gone for just a light brown.

88. CmdrR - January 17, 2008

Zoe… Zowie!

Sorry, had to.

Yes, this will take some getting used to… maybe by the third time I go to see the movie, I’ll ignore that it’s not Shat, Nim, & De. That’s OK. It’s really, really OK.

I’ll have a new son in a few days. Currently, my ‘youngest’ is 14. Gonna take some time to stop saying “I have two kids” and start saying “I have three kids.” Point is, live goes on. Rodenberry knew that. We fans can figure it out.

These folks look good. Let’s hope they get some cool lines.

89. SPB - January 17, 2008

#86 – Michael Hall

Don’t you understand??? They were supposed to CLONE Leonard Nimoy about 30 years ago in preparation for STAR TREK XI, and NOT hire some “actor” who only looks MOSTLY like Nimoy! :)

Yeah, and as for the “smug” and “snotty” comments… unless the original poster actually KNOWS Zachary Quinto personally and/or it gets around town that Quinto is one, giant *sshole, then I think we can safely assume the poster is projecting his/her hatred onto just about every aspect of this film, to the point of ridiculousness.

90. NCC-73515 - January 17, 2008

83 T’Lera: qarI’
Hovleng taHjaj

91. manrum - January 17, 2008

Why have Nimoy wearing the brille all over the map?


92. Trek Nerd Central - January 17, 2008

#7 & #57. I disagree COMPLETELY. These boys have me wrapped around their charming little pinkies. So this makes me a pathetic sop, but what can I say.

Pine’s hair is good. It’s not ur-Kirk, exactly, but close enough. . . and ask yourselves: DO YOU REALLY WANT CHRIS PINE’S HAIR TO LOOK LIKE SHATNER’S?

Think about that just a sec. Now think about it another sec. See what I mean?

93. RedStatesRule - January 17, 2008

I’ve never liked the look of Karl Urban as McCoy.

When I looked at the pictures, I looked at the picture with John Cho then Anton Yelchin and saw the third man and couldn’t figure out who it was.

When I finally did I said — It’s Dr. McCoy. The hair is all it took.

He looked nothing like Urban, he looked a lot like McCoy though.

I’m good with this casting choice now.

94. Trek Nerd Central - January 17, 2008

Excuse me, I meant “sap.” Pathetic “sap.” Though “sop” works too, I guess.

Whatever. Pathetic.

95. rubee - January 17, 2008

Pegg was in London yesterday filming pickups on How to Lose Friends and Alienate People.

96. trekgeezer - January 17, 2008

There are some much better pictures over a You can actually enlarge them and there’s no logo obscuring the pictures.

They are mixed in with the cast from Cloverfield and other attendees.

It settled a lot of my uneasiness about Urban.

97. star trackie - January 17, 2008

Good pics but Quinto’s glasses look like they came from Charles Nelson Reilly’s estate sale. But they serve the purpose I suppose. He and Pine look good together.

98. Ivy - January 17, 2008

Karl looks great. I was concerned there for a bit about what he’d look like now that they’re filming but wow. I’m happy now. He should make quite the decent Bones.

99. DavidJ - January 17, 2008

Holy crap Lurker, you ROCK!!!

Ship looks fine, from what I can tell. From the description though, I was expecting this to be set during the day.

100. Anthony (no, not THE Anthony, the one in Indiana) - January 17, 2008

102. See above. I found it! Its MINE! MY OWN! MY PRECIOUS!

101. DavidJ - January 17, 2008

Oops, sorry Anthony. YOU rock!!!

Anyway, the basic shape looks very much the same. I think I can even see the same “fins” at the back of the nacelles.

102. Noleuser - January 17, 2008

Really Cool!

103. Scifigirl - January 17, 2008

I knew all along that Karl Urban could pull off the McCoy look easily. And now all the non-believers have finally been silenced… Just kidding, don’t lynch me. :D

#68 –
About Karl’s enthusiasm, watch this interview he gave at the premiere and you’ll see it’s even more obvious there. He’s like a kid in a candy store! Love him! :)

“Karl Urban ditched the NZ accent for an American one?”

Unfortunately, he seems to do what whenever he’s speaking to the American media… Don’t know why though and I think it’s too bad.

104. Imrahil - January 17, 2008

Sigh. Looks like Koerner’s.

105. Noleuser - January 17, 2008


106. lodownX - January 17, 2008

Urban imo really has had the biggest transformation. I didn’t see it before… but I can really see McCoy now. Can’t wait.

107. DavidJ - January 17, 2008


I agree the front of the nacelles bear a striking resemblance to Koerner’s, but there’s no reason to think the rest of the ship is his.

Besides, those nacelles were BADASS.

108. Imrahil - January 17, 2008

110 – I don’t agree. I thought they looked like a clock or something with all the gears; I much prefer the TOS ones where there’s motion but it’s not clearly defined or transparent.

109. RaveOnEd - January 17, 2008

The domes aren’t on the nacelles yet, that’s why you see the “turbine” look of the nacelles.

110. Imrahil - January 17, 2008

114 – You think? I figured they were “clear” like Koerner’s…but maybe you’re right…

111. Bobby - January 17, 2008

Urban is gonna rule as McCoy! I knew it when they announced it. He, so far, is my favorite casting choice other than Nimoy.


112. Diabolik - January 17, 2008

I think we are seeing the inside of the collectors before the caps are put on.

113. Spock Jenkins - January 17, 2008

Is it just me or are the guys ( Sulu, Chekov, Kirk, Pike ) sporting some sort of ‘futuristic’ ‘high-top’ hairdo?!?

114. Diabolik - January 17, 2008

Zoe seems to be filling out that dress a little better in these pics… maybe she’ll be alright as Uhura! But Whereas Nichelle was short and stacked, Zoe is tall and willowy. But, she might work….

115. Captain Vaz - January 17, 2008

Zoe: I like Zoe as Uhura. She captures the natural ebony beauty of Uhura. It wouldn´t cool if they hire a afro-american girl with a nose job or something. Something like Beyoncè, I don´t know.

Urban: Urban is McCoy. He is looking a lot Kelly. It´s such suprise for me.

Quinto: no words to describe it. He is a clone of Nimoy.

Pine: Good casting, I think. Better than Mike Vogel. I have never watched a Pine´s movie, so I can opine. But I see some dangerous in his eyes, like the young Jim from the series.

Cho: It´s ok for me. Sulu was a very bidimensional caracter in the series, and I think Takey is not a “great” actor.. Let´s see it.

Yelchin: look nothing like Checov. But the man is young, russian and I think fill the part. I dont know if Checov will be a great time on screen.

Greenwood: a very competent actor. The man has authoraty for sure, when play this kind of caracter (like US president). Great cast.

Pegg: I want to see a picture of him as Scotty! I think he will play a good comic relief, like the movie Scotty. Maybe he dont have the look, but has the vibe, for sure.

116. Ralph - January 17, 2008


You are correct. My bad.

117. Mark Lynch - January 17, 2008

I think that we will be surprised by Simon Pegg and he will play it straight as a die. If anyone has seen Shaun of the Dead, Pegg played it seriously. The humour came out of the situation in the way it was portrayed. That’s my take on it anyway.

118. raffie - January 17, 2008

Just a shame Uhura lost her curves ;(

119. TBK1701 - January 17, 2008

120 I was thinking the same thing too.

120. Ty Webb - January 17, 2008

Pine is going to have to pluck those eyebrows. He looks a thunderbirds puppet.

121. Classic trek - January 17, 2008

here they are then. after all these years the original crew of NCC 1701 are reborn. they look fantastic. imagine these guys in a foto shoot on the bridge with those unforms. WOW.

warp speed to 25.12.08 (or what ever it will be in Great Britain)!!


122. Q - January 17, 2008

Seeing everyone now, in these pictures, they look a lot like they’re supposed to. They just look great. lol. I was fangirling at the bottom picture of Zack-san and Pine-san. There was a silent scream so I wouldn’t freak out anybody, but it was a long one. Awesome pics.

123. Scott Gammans - January 17, 2008

All the guys look so serious! And yeah, Chris Pine really needs to do something about those eyebrows.

124. Sam Belil - January 17, 2008

I think the cast looks cool (even though Gary Sinise was BORN to play McCoy). But who is playing Gary Mitchell????????????????????

125. Kirk's Girdle - January 17, 2008

What the hell? Is Greenwood all grey on the sides?

126. Gerry Alanguilan - January 17, 2008

At first I couldn’t see Karl Urban as Mccoy… but now that I see what his haircut for the movie seems to be…. oh man. He’s McCoy, allright!

And same is true for Zachary. As long as his uber-clean shaven he really becomes Spock. When I see TOS episodes now I start to see Zachary in Nimoy once in a while.

127. VOODOO - January 17, 2008

I wish those guys a lot of luck in what is going to be a very difficult task.

128. girl6 - January 17, 2008

Bow chika wow wow…

Hot cast!

129. I AM THX-1138 - January 17, 2008

This is great! Urban really does have a McCoy vibe in that picture but I wish we could have seen Peggy. Zoe is hot, also!

BTW, it is my opinion that if you come onto a web-site about a new Star Trek movie just to complain about every single thing pertaining to the movie, you are a loser. Even Stanky (yes, I said it) has an air of optimism,if guarded and cautious. An un-named few piss and moan about every detail being wrong and that the movie will be a violation of their memories or something.

If there is nothing here for you to like, what is your purpose here? Why subject yourself to something you don’t like? If this is so bad, why don’t you go somewhere else?

I am looking forward to this with great anticipation and I’m tired of suffering the whiners. I say get on board or get lost.

130. K. M. Kirby - January 17, 2008

They still lack the unmistakable aura of Desili.

131. Kigs - January 17, 2008

Awesome Anthony! Freaking Awesome! But where wsa Leonard?

My God, Quinto is a Spocky hotty!:)


132. Oregon Trek Geek - January 17, 2008

Indeed, a hot cast. Um, I’m no fashion god, but should Chris Pine be wearing brown shoes with a blue suit? Maybe someone on here knows for sure if that is or is not a fashion violation. :)

133. JBS - January 17, 2008

#132 – I am also not a fashion expert (like any good nerd would be?), but I also thought the same thing about Pine’s brown shoes – they stick out like a sore thumb. Quinto did much better on his shoe selection. So much for shoe talk.

134. JBS - January 17, 2008

In that photo of Pine and Quinto standing together, don’t they look rather spaced out? (pun intended) They are both looking up at the stars with blank expresions – just wondering if they were doing that intentionally (looks dorky).

135. Dafydd1971 - January 17, 2008

Brown shoes with a blue suit *is* acceptable (or maybe “was” is a better term…it’s a very 80s look). It’s brown shoes with a black suit that is the big no-no.

The cast looks awesome. They really are an extremely good looking bunch of people. Very distracting!

136. ? - January 17, 2008

I wonder where Nimoy was that night. I don’t see him in any of the pictures

137. The Realist - January 17, 2008

15. James Heaney – Wowbagger – January 17, 2008 – A bit off the topic, but “Frack” I hear that word so often! I had to have a bit of a laugh, it seems BSG realy has had an impact!.

And most of the cast looks great!

138. Batts - January 17, 2008

If I had to take a shot in the dark now! This movie is going to get 2 maybe 2.5 stars! I am really trying to believe these guys are our favs from the 60’s. It’s really not going over too well! Greenwood as Pike, I am not convinced… The new ship..I dont know?? Too many liberties taken..

139. blake powers - January 17, 2008

Holy Crap,
I thought that Urban would just play the part well but dear LORD!!! He looks it too! (granted a litl bit bigger) but deforest kelley was pretty small.

140. focuspuller - January 18, 2008

I have to say honestly, I have always felt skeptical about Quinto as Spock, obviously I won’t know for sure until the film is released and of course my figures are crossed. But I have to say, he looks more like Nimoy now then ever I’ve seen him. Plucking and styling goes a long way, he also seems slimer, call me crazy.

While I think it’s funny that we’re giving feedback on these pictures like red carpet critic, I will say that I am also guilty as charged. Yes, it’s great to seem them together for the first time. Well all see the classic cast as one unit, and it’s nice to see the “new unit” together.

I was always supportive of Urban, always thought he’s a good actor and can pull it off, as far as his look, it’s great, he’s McCoy.

141. focuspuller - January 18, 2008

that would be fingers not figures btw. One-hundred and Forty-First!

142. JB Gestl - January 18, 2008

J.J. Abrams should shave his sideburns into points, too. just to show us that he’s really into it.

143. JB Gestl - January 18, 2008

Nimoy used to wear glasses like that to hide his shaved eyebrows back in the day. Every thing is right with the world!

144. Alderaan - January 18, 2008

I prefer Star Trek: New Voyages to this new film, at least they keep the original feeling and fidelity to Gene Roddenberry’s vision… I feel this ST XI like a commercial product of the CBS/Paramount’s moneymen!!

145. Tess - January 18, 2008

I don`t like the idea that TOS has a return on cinema. Why is every great show getting a return in Hollywood? Has Hollywood no ideas for new movies?
I can`t see Karl Urban playing McCoy. I think his charisma is completely different.
I also ask myself why Pike has a part in the movie and who is playing Philip Boyce?

146. Katie G. - January 18, 2008

124. Sam Belil – January 17, 2008

I hadn’t thought of him. He would have been excellent!! Maybe a little too old, though. Guess that’s why they went with Urban.

12. J.D. Lee – January 17, 2008

Me too!! Absolutely!! Although I also want to see the actor who’s portraying Scott!! Rip-off! :-) Where can one go to get a good picture of Simon Pegg? Google him?

They may have to make Jennifer Morrison look a little older (unless Winona Kirk is not the mother…). Guess they are not including Kirk’s father (or are they — anyone know?)

Wonder if they’ll post some pics with them in full Star Trek mode — ears, sideburns, uniforms and all!! Maybe in a few months. Be still my heart!


147. The Vulcanista - January 18, 2008

I have never seen Karl Urban w/o facial hair. Wow!

Karl, honey, don’t ever grow a beard again.

Peace. Live long and prosper.
The Vulcanista }:-|

148. pcg - January 18, 2008

I still would have gone with a differenct choice for Pike, i.e.: Patrich Swazye, Kurt Russell, Mel Gibson, Ray Leotah, Ed Harris etc. etc, in other words a bigger name actor, more star power.

149. NZorak - January 18, 2008

I’m really starting to agree with the casting choices. Pine and Quinto really are the spitting images of their characters and Urban doesn’t look half bad either. I know Quinto has the presence to pull of Spock, so the only thing I’m really wanting to see is Pine as Kirk. I suppose that this is a young Kirk really gives him a chance to grow. Right now his features are all right, but I haven’t seen evidence of Kirk’s commanding presence. At least not yet. I don’t think he’ll disappoint.

150. LocoGato - January 18, 2008

I think the casting of Quinto as Spock was SPOT ON. If you can stomach it, watch Quinto’s guest appearance in ‘Touched By An Angel’, and in some scenes he is the spitting image of a young Nimoy.

My problem with the casting is Pine – I hope they have him wearing contacts, because I could swear Shatner’s eyes were hazel/brown.

And I still think Ray Liotta shuold have been Pike….

151. YMZ - January 18, 2008

The casting on this after looking at everyone here is spot on. From the looks of the teaser, I think Star Trek is finally back on track. Pine has an edge, just watch Smokin’ Aces. Now, watch…there will be those classic western bar brawl fight scenes but choreographed like Bourne Identity. Boo-Yah! Can’t frippin’ wait!!!

152. JB - January 19, 2008

Elvis Costello’s in the new ST movie?

“I used to be disgusted
Now I try to be amused…”

153. Phil - January 19, 2008

I have grown up from a small boy watching Star Trek in reruns. From which I have learned so much in where my entire life has been affected in a positive way. All that I can say is every generation should experience Star Trek, perhaps Gene would be pleased. Funny I have often said to friends that Star Trek should be required learning in all schools as a fundamental basis for the true vision of what we are meant to evolve into, however we have a very long way to go, so that being said aside from my own preference for the original cast. Live Long And Prosper. Lets see whats out there, so to speak.

154. Kynan( future writer/director of awesome movies) - January 19, 2008

hey 153:Phil

I have said the same things to my friends hey. the world would be a better place if everyone watched star trek and learned from it.

155. Irish Trekki - January 20, 2008

They look awsome! Dunno who the casting agent was but well done!!
Trailer kicks some serious ass too!

156. Crewman Darnell - January 20, 2008

I’m okay with the casting choices for the most part. Aside from my desire to see a more true-to-form, “ample” Uhura, hopefully Quinto will appear taller than Pine in their respective roles. Even in realizing that these actors are “re-creating” the characters, I feel there are a few physical characteristics that should remain consistent with TOS. Besides the Quinto/Pine height disparity, I agree with an earlier comment that a Kirk with bright blue eyes just wouldn’t look right. I hope some of these nuances are addressed by the makeup dept.

157. name - January 20, 2008

Couldn’t they have hired a few adults instead of this collection of whippersnappers?

158. Wayne Spitzer - January 20, 2008

#153: That’s exactly so. We’re all Roddenberry’s Kids.

#157: Nah! I’m 41 (same age as Trek), but knew all along they had to go young this time if they were to go at all. The question was: would they do it right?

Well, look at that cast. You tell me.

Me, I’ve seen enough. I’m on board. That pic of Quinto and Pine “gave me chills” also. Urban as Bones–check. Uhura (insert basey “Oh my… here)–check. I mean, look at her eyes…she’s got that same kind of grounded intelligence going on. And the nacelles look perfectly proportioned to me.

Somebody was bound to say it. You’d think maybe some dumb kid, but, you’d be wrong.

Hey, Trek was progressive, not politically correct. Roddenberry’s Kids, right? Sure are a lot of us….

159. Trekkie1962 - January 20, 2008

Interesting to note that Chirs Hemsworth (Georg Kirk–the father of James T. Kirk) is only three years older than Chris Pine (Kirk Rebooted?). Definately time travel in this movie…and WOW those eyes!!!

160. Gustavo Valente - January 24, 2008

“Dammit Jim!!” This cast is great….. I missed a Simon Pegg picture here….

161. Big Dog - January 28, 2008

my biggest issue with this movie is Pine’s eyes…. Kirk (Shatner) has brown eyes. I hope to god they insert brown contacts during filming. Kirk HAS BROWN eyes….screw his hair color. Pine sort of fullfill’s the roll as long as he has brown eyes. Other than that the rest of the crew looks great, especially Quinto and Zoe just looks perfect all together!!! :)

162. Jamie - February 1, 2008

Am I the only person who thinks Anton Yelchin looks like a perfect McCoy? (In this photo at least?)

I would be getting confused if he was on the bridge. I would assume he was McCoy.

163. Brooklyn Bad Girl - March 17, 2009

I am not a Star Trek fan but if Karl Urban is in the movie, I’ll not only go to
see the movie, I definitely will buy the DVD. Hot, Hot, Hot.
Miss the manly facial hair though.

164. Celia Calliham - June 23, 2011

I think youve produced some truly interesting points. Not too many people would really think about this the way you just did. Im definitely impressed that theres so substantially about this topic thats been uncovered and you did it so well, with so substantially class. Very good one you, man!
