Star Trek Movie Alien Spoilers? June 3, 2008by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: Spoilers,Star Trek (2009 film) , trackback
Every Star Trek movie (and TV show) has lots of aliens. The folks at io9 have been trolling through IMDB and think they have sussed out what aliens are in the new Star Trek movie. Some have sent this article in as a ‘tip’ to TrekMovie.com, but did io9 really figure it all out?
The io9 article “Find Out Which Aliens Turn Up In J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Movie” goes through some of the character names that have shown up on IMDB in the last month and attempts to derive what aliens will be in the movie, concluding that it will include Klingons, Orions, and Romulans. Of course, all of that is pretty old news around here, see TrekMovie articles on: Klingons, Orions, and Romulans.
And then io9 concludes with this ‘shocking’ discovery:
Most shocking alien race mentioned in the cast credits: Kelvin Alien #1. Are we really going to see the return of those uptight peeps from Andromeda, with the belt buckles that turn you into bath salts? Really?
Ummm…No not really
The ‘uptight aliens from Andromeda’ are ‘the Kelvans.’ Any ‘Kelvin alien’ would be referring to a member of the crew of the USS Kelvin, a ship revealed by TrekMovie.com in our spoiler article last week on ships for the new Star Trek movie. In fact just a few days ago io9 ran an article about our article “Spock’s new ride” which itself mentions the USS Kelvin.
That being said, there are aliens in the new Star Trek movie in addition to the ones mentioned above. Some have been seen previously in Trek before and some that are entirely new. As TrekMovie gets more confirmations on this we hope to have an article about the aliens in the future.
Kelvans and their cool buckles NOT in JJ Abrams “Star Trek”
What about IMDB?
There are a number of new actors listed on the IMDB page for Star Trek, however TrekMovie does not use IMDB as a source as it has proven unreliable (for example Matt Damon was listed as Kirk for months). That being said some of the actors recently listed have been confirmed and TrekMovie.com is currently working on a series of articles about some more confirmed cast members for the film, most of which are fairly small roles.
