Star Trek Cover Story In Entertainment Weekly! October 15, 2008

by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: Star Trek (2009 film) , trackback

This is what you have been waiting for. Last week we reported that the veil of secrecy is starting to be lifted on the new Star Trek and we noted that some images could come sooner than the November trailer. Well that ‘sooner’ is this week with Friday’s issue of Entertainment Weekly which will be featuring a cover story about JJ Abrams Trek movie. A preview of the cover and more info below.

 

And so it begins
This weekend’s EW (due out Friday) will have an exclusive peek at next Summer’s Star Trek, including behind the scenes photos. Here is the cover.

There should be more on the EW website by Thursday or Friday.

About the uniforms
The EW cover preview is the first full color image of the new Star Trek bridge uniforms. You could infer what they were from the promotional posters, but those were ‘stylized’ and it made it harder to see the uniforms. As reported in the TrekMovie Uniform Spoilers article from July, the new bridge uniform shirts are actually in two parts. There is a grey/black undershirt and a second v-neck shirt over that (red, blue or gold). If you look closely you can see that the over shirt has the delta shield as a repeating pattern in the weave and the undershirt also has a subtle emblem embossed on the chest.

All in all the new uniforms are very much in line with the main Original Series uniforms. From a distance you may not even be able to spot the differences. However these bridge uniforms are just the beginning. Star Trek is said to have more wardrobe than any other Trek film, including Star Trek The Motion Picture. We should expect to see many of the stars in multiple outfits, many of which will be totally new designs.

More to come soon
As noted in our earlier reporting, Paramount is just starting up their campaign for this movie. Right now they are building buzz that will lead up to the trailer coming out next month. This EW story is not the extent of that so you may want to check back with TrekMovie later today.

1. Reliant - October 15, 2008

The uniforms are not bad. First!!

2. the king in shreds and tatters - October 15, 2008

Damn, they really did match the look of the uniforms.

3. Tiberius Kirk - October 15, 2008

Too Cool!

4. cw - October 15, 2008

yippee!!

5. TimyJ - October 15, 2008

Its about time…..

6. the king in shreds and tatters - October 15, 2008

The eye/uniform thing is kinda freaking me out though.

7. Mat Child - October 15, 2008

Oh so cool!!
Seeing Kirk and Spock in the same shot like that sent a shiver down my spine.

It looks right somehow

8. Lope de Aguirre - October 15, 2008

The Cover (and Kirk + Spock) look stupid and disappointing.

OK I wait and see the movie…

9. D.J. - October 15, 2008

Excellent! The first pics showing the uniforms.

10. Xplodin' Nacelle - October 15, 2008

The black undershirt is consistent w/ the first season TOS episodes.

11. Neal - October 15, 2008

Spock is thinking: “I am a Vulcan! I am NOT being weirded out by Kirk snuggling up against me!”

12. Norman - October 15, 2008

did Spock just walk off the Hairspray set????

13. Bryan - October 15, 2008

Now we’re cooking. Great photograph.

14. eastwhite - October 15, 2008

Spock looks almost child-like in this photo

15. Thomas - October 15, 2008

I can start to really see Pine and Quinto in the Kirk and Spock roles now. Although I have to say that Quinto looks a little bewildered. Pine seems to have that cocky look Kirk should have.

16. star trackie - October 15, 2008

Nice. I’ll reserve comment on the actors and make up until I see more photos from different angles. Cover shots and publicity pics can photo-shopped to death. It’s the stills from the actual movie that I’m anxious to see.
But yeah, the whole 2 piece thing WORKS and works well! I’ll be heading to the newstand Friday fer sure!

17. Ryan T. Riddle - October 15, 2008

Looks good!

18. That One Guy - October 15, 2008

Denise, this is a picture of Kirk and ZQ Spock rubbing on each other. If you do not show up within 5 posts, I will be most displeased.

As for my girlish glee, please see the following:

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!

19. bman - October 15, 2008

He needs more green eyeshadow.

20. GaryP - October 15, 2008

Contrary to past opinions, it looks as though the Kirk character is fully flushed out in the image, whereas Spock to me, looks like a young actor playing a Vulcan. He does not look like Spock.

21. Sean4000 - October 15, 2008

Cawley was WRONG! He said the uniforms were 95% the same. I say more like 98%! ;)

Good take on the uniforms.

22. I'm Captain Kirk... I'M CAPTAIN KIRK! - October 15, 2008

FRIGGIN’ AWESOME!

(I have a feeling I’ll be saying that alot between now and May)

23. Buckaroohawk - October 15, 2008

Well, toss me into the matter/anti-matter injector! It’s Kirk and Spock!

I know that some purists will start ranting any minute now, but looking at that photo, I see James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock. I don’t care if the uniform is a little different, or that Kirk’s eyes aren’t brown anymore. Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine are standing there, and they are Spock and Kirk.

Now, just to grease the gears of speculation…this is the 2nd photo we’ve seen of Chris Pine where he is NOT wearing the familiar command colors of everyone’s favorite Starfleet captain. The first was in the promo posters released earlier this year. I wonder why that is. Hmmm…

24. Son of Sarek - October 15, 2008

Evidently Pine will not be wearing hazel contacts. Nevertheless, he appears to exude a commanding aura. The uniforms seem true to the originals as Cawley claimed some months ago. 200+ days to go…

25. Chris Dawson - October 15, 2008

YAY!

26. DJT - October 15, 2008

Quinto looks like Vorik and all the other Post TOS wanna-be Vulcans. Here at least.

27. Fwise3 - October 15, 2008

niftyness

28. CmdrR - October 15, 2008

They look good. I think a couple million musta gone for the state-of-the-art CGI motion-capture technology needed to de-stubble Zpock.

By the way, “Spock and Kirk?” Um, no. It’s Kirk and Spock, no matter who’s playing the roles or something valuable is lost in the chemistry. Without Kirk, Spock is just an emotion-lite Vulcan. With Kirk, and McCoy and the other annoying hoomanz, Spock becomes an observer and seeker. THAT’S what’s interesting to watch.

29. john doe - October 15, 2008

is it just me or are the delta symbol thingys not right?

30. ety3 - October 15, 2008

Something just looks … odd … about Spock.

The eyebrows and hair. Hopefully, this was just a slap-together job for the photo shoot and not really representative of how he’ll look in the film.

31. MORN SPEAKS - October 15, 2008

Wow totally awesome! I’m mad I just finished my subscription to EW!!! Argh!

32. Norman - October 15, 2008

#30 – it looks as if Spock is wearing a wig. whereas Nimoy got his haircut Vulcan Style…

33. Brian - October 15, 2008

Keeping the old-school uniforms….love it!

I think Quinto and Pine look awesome together in the pic.

34. LordCheeseCakeBreath - October 15, 2008

Awesome. Why is Kirk not in his uniform?

35. ety3 - October 15, 2008

Yep, I just double-checked with the movie’s site.

The blue “delta shield” wallpaper picture of Quinto as Spock looks far better and more natural than this cover.

I’m fairly certain this was a separate, “EW photo shoot only” type of hair-and-makeup job.

And Pine looks like a badass.

36. Blowback - October 15, 2008

Looks good…. Can’t wait to see more….

37. Closettrekker - October 15, 2008

It looks every bit as good as can be expected from a recasting of these iconic characters and a modern take on TOS uniforms.

I am very impressed.

Short of actually ‘cloning’ Nimoy and Shatner and growing them in a lab prior to filming, I don’t think they could have done any better!!!

And EW just sold one of their magazines to someone who has never before purchased one——me. I may buy two…one to read, and one to put away.

38. hairstylefreak - October 15, 2008

good!

spock´s hair looks like the TNG-vulcan-overdone-helmet-hairstyle though….

39. Danny L - October 15, 2008

is it me or is it al just beginning :-D yayayayaayayay!

40. Closettrekker - October 15, 2008

#29—-It’s you.

#34—He just left Rand’s quarters in a hurry…

41. I'm dead Jim - October 15, 2008

Yeah. Spock looks over Photoshopped or something. Doesn’t look like Quinto either. Still, I’m excited.

42. Captain Hackett - October 15, 2008

Sweet Jesus!

MOAR PICS! ;)

43. TrekMadeMeWonder - October 15, 2008

GAY.

44. TrekMadeMeWonder - October 15, 2008

Yeah, GAY.

45. TrekMadeMeWonder - October 15, 2008

Oh man is that GAY.

46. Matt - October 15, 2008

Why is spock so shiney?

47. Andy Patterson - October 15, 2008

Hmm. Is that Ringo Star? And is that why he’s saying he won’t sign anything anymore?

48. Fwise3 - October 15, 2008

35. I agree. If you look at Quinto’s eyebrows in the EW shoot then go back and look at the picture of him on the official poster, they look very different. Even his hairline looks different. I bet in the movie, Quinto will look more like the picture on the poster.

49. captain_neill - October 15, 2008

Suddenly the uniforms dont look as good to me now, not as good as the original 60s uniforms but at least they are faithful to the originals.

I think the starfleet delta quilting on the uniform is too much. Does it mean that each starship assigment have their own patches stitiched into their uniforms? More than likely they have overlooked that fact.

I think they have overlooked this little fact to appeal to the mainstream audience.

They do look good but they will NEVER take the place of the true Kirk and Spock- William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy

If its a good film I think I will be able to live with it but I would be preferring the originals to these new ones any day.

50. AP - October 15, 2008

Why is Pine not in gold in the poster and on the cover?

My guess is that they want to save that for the final, climactic moment of the movie–Kirk, wearing command gold, strides onto the bridge of the Enterprise for the first time as captain.

51. Odkin - October 15, 2008

It IS weird that Pine looks better as Kirk then Quinto looks as Spock. Everyone expected the opposite. Besides the lack of green eyeshadow, and the goofy look on his face, the major problem with Spock is the bangs. Same mistake that Cawley makes in STNV. Spock does not have a bowl-cut. His bangs are supposed to dip down in the front, almost mirroring the curve of his eyebrows.

52. Anthony Pascale - October 15, 2008

Warning to TrekMadeMeWonder

That term is not be used here as a pejorative, and spamming it three times in a row gets you a warning

comments to http://trekmovie.com/about/feedback

53. TrekMadeMeWonder - October 15, 2008

Who is the marketing director on this movie?!!

MY GOD MAN! DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’VE DONE?!!

The publics first look, and this is it? OMG!

54. ScreenRant.com - October 15, 2008

IMHO, they look metrosexual.

Vic

55. Driver - October 15, 2008

O. M. G. That’s Quinto? Sooo not what I expected. Like comparing Reeves and Routh.

56. Enterprise - October 15, 2008

That is nice! Would be a great poster,

57. AJ - October 15, 2008

Anthony:

Is that a photograph of the characters? Spock doesn’t appear to resemble Zachary Quinto. He looks a bit young.

58. Lurker - October 15, 2008

AICN has a still from the film (possibly from the trailer?) that is appearing in EW…

http://www.aintitcool.com/node/38753

59. McCoy - October 15, 2008

Agree…Pine looks very good…Qunito…not so much. I agree it’s mostly the bangs and lack of eye shadow. I don’t think we’re being picky….because those simple changes seem to take this Spock pic into a parody like the Cawley STNV Spocks.

60. Spockanella - October 15, 2008

Oh, be still my heart.

61. Gustavo - October 15, 2008

Nice to see that the marketing has begun….

Kirk is awesome….but Spock looks fake….

this image of Spock is better

63. Lawrence Boucher - October 15, 2008

Guys, Aint It Cool just posted another shot from EW, this one from the film…

http://www.aintitcool.com/images2008/bigspock.jpg

64. DJT - October 15, 2008

There is an effect in that picture that 43 and 44 made clear. In addition, I think that having one guy trying to be a carbon copy of the original character while the second is a loser interpretation make it odd. If both were cookie cutter versions or if both were more loosely on the original characters then that picture would make more sense. Plus, Quinto looks like lacks Nimoy’s gravitas.

65. Spock Jenkins - October 15, 2008

Spock looks like a NextGen Vulcan, with the bad wig and dodgy brows…I PRAY this is not what he looks like in the finished film….

66. I am not Herbert - October 15, 2008

Hmmm… something IS a little off w/ Spock…

…but his uniform looks EXCELLENT!! =D

…and so it begins…

67. I am not Herbert - October 15, 2008

oh yeah… need larger version of cover for full analysis… thanks!

68. Gabriel Bell - October 15, 2008

Big day all around. The photos are great. The cover is great. And the track record of JJ, Orci, Kurtzman is great. We are on our way to a glorious Trek rebirth.

Thanks for linking to those AICN photos. Fantastic.

69. Spockanella - October 15, 2008

Trek Made Me Wonder: What exactly is your issue?

70. TrekMadeMeWonder - October 15, 2008

63.
I’m not sure I understand Trek anymore after that last shot of Spock from the movie But Quinto does look so much better.

Stock rebounds 750 pnts.

71. Enterprise - October 15, 2008

Will Kirk have a green shirt!

72. ArtRob - October 15, 2008

Spock looks too slick and artificial. Looks very photoshoped. Yes, the hair and eye brows aren’t right. Quinto looks like “Son of Kirk” but I don’t mind that.

73. Sean - October 15, 2008

If we weren’t sure of Quinto’s dedication before, we know it now. He sacrificed his eyebrows for this movie! I’m so bummed my EW sub expired! I’ll have to find it at a store. Wonder how much they cost these days?

74. ByGeorge - October 15, 2008

#63

Is that Kirk/Pine that Spock is choking on that picture? Looks like it could be. If so, fascinating, but it doesn’t look like a good start for the friendship.

75. Katie - October 15, 2008

The slickness is part of EW’s shtick, not necessarily JJ’s doing. Remember the god awful Twilight cover?

76. JeffreyNdallas - October 15, 2008

Look at the pic from AICN…..looks much better than the cover photo….and more like we think Spock should look…..no worries here!

I am more excited now that we have seen this and the Kelvin from the next post….not that I was unexcited before….I am just happy we have some TREK coming our way…..

77. TrekMadeMeWonder - October 15, 2008

69. Spockanella

EW cover design is too unSpock like for my tastes. You should see that too! Kirk too is off. Kirk always had the buzz cut early on. He was just getting out of the academy! Whats up with the pretty boy look? I’ll just blame it on EW’s poor art direction and hope that was just a muffed cover.

63. Lawrence Boucher

Judging from the live action shots this looks like it will be better than as presented by EW. Thanks

Sorry for the G-Y posts Anthony. Seriously.
But the EW cover is just awful.

78. ColonialOne - October 15, 2008

There is a exclusive pic of Nero in Joblo.com as well!

http://www.joblo.com/excl-star-trek-pic

I think it all looks ok, Im positive about this film… My only doubt is about Pine, is job its going to be the hardest of all the cast.

79. Thomas - October 15, 2008

61 and 63 Gustavo and Lawrence Boucher:

That’s how Spock ought to look! And is it just me or is Spock choking out Kirk, with McCoy in the background?

Anyway, the EW cover looks to be either Photoshopped or a quickie make-up job done just for the shoot.

80. Enterprise - October 15, 2008

Wow. Nemesis flashback with that pic.

81. sherlockfreak - October 15, 2008

Holy SH*T!!!!

That is awesome and totally made me gasp and squeal incoherently.

I am SO glad I didn’t cancel my subscription to EW like I was planning! I would’ve kicked myself.

82. Spock Jenkins - October 15, 2008

I’m pretty sure Zach Quinto’s Spock brows have been photoshopped and lifted up somewhat, to give him a more ‘open’ expression – I did a quick photoshop test for myself and brought his eyebrows ‘down’ and it looks looks more like Zachary Quinto then…his hair still looks off though…will have to see the characters in motion to get a full and better understanding…

83. TrekMadeMeWonder - October 15, 2008

AICN’s bridge shot looks like a possible mirror/mirror Spock.

84. karanadon - October 15, 2008

OHMIGOD if the three pictures are any indication, this film will ROCK! To say I’ve been blown away would be an understatement!

More lifting of the veil of secrecy, more, MORE!!

85. Alec - October 15, 2008

In that cover shot, Quinto looks…odd. Perhaps it will grow on me? However, Pine very much resembles a young Shatner, with a modern twist. Good stuff! Now let’s see the ship, please!

86. karanadon - October 15, 2008

#83 Unless they’re pulling the Ponn Farr card again… is that Kirk he’s pinching/strangling?! =S

87. The Quickening - October 15, 2008

By looking at this photo, I can definitely see why Kevin Smith is so high on Pine. Quinto’s Spock is good, but he lacks the freshness, mystery and charisma that, even in this photo I can see that Pine, and Pine’s Kirk will possibly have in the film.

I guess it’s like looking at a picture of a semi-nude woman and a totally naked woman and asking which is the most sexy. I say the half clad woman is because there is discovery, possibility and imagination to be had. Quinto looks so much like Nimoys’ Spock, I get a sense that I’ve been there before.

This was one of the reason I was, and still am disappointed with the film. I still say a total re-imagining of TREK would have been more interesting, but I know I’m in the minority.

88. Thomas - October 15, 2008

78. ColonialOne,
That Nero picture looks great, people are really starting to get ratcheted up about this movie.

89. Thomas - October 15, 2008

78. ColonialOne,
That Nero picture looks great, people are really starting to get ratcheted up about this movie.

90. MiniKirk - October 15, 2008

Ok, I just orgasmed. Seriously, I can’t wait for this movie. Quinto looks amazing as our favorite Half-Vulcan. Seriously, I despise magazines like Entertainment Weekly, but I’ll be picking this one up on Friday. Damn tho, from the look of Spock’s uniform, I have no qualms. This movie will rock!
-The Doc

91. Saavik - October 15, 2008

#63

I have to admit, that I will need some time to get used to those ears. Something seems to be missing… or is it just because he looks so young… *waitingForTrailerToGetABetterFeeling*

92. The Quickening - October 15, 2008

#34. LordCheeseCakeBreath

Awesome. Why is Kirk not in his uniform?

Two possibilities quickly come to mind:

1) He is teaching at the Academy

2) He is being punished for cheating on the Kobayashi Maru.

93. Spockanella - October 15, 2008

Remember, folks, as has been pointed out repeatedly, EW has a habit of Photoshopping the heck out of stuff. Our heroes aren’t really going to look like an ad for Bare Minerals makeup in the movie! :)

Even still…OMG OMG OMG.

94. Smike van Dyke - October 15, 2008

The UNIFORMS are really really cool. That’s the best thing so far about the movie. They look authentic and truly nostalgic…straying from that infamous “going darker and darker” routine of DS9-VOY-FC-ENT style…

The rest does not impress me yet though…However I WANT this movie to succeed! I’ll keep my fingers crossed…

95. N - October 15, 2008

For a first picture Kirk should be wearing gold!

96. Spockanella - October 15, 2008

Kirk isn’t taller than Spock. This is not canon (I’m kidding! Completely!).

Sorry. I have suddently and inexplicably reverted to adolescence.

97. bdrcarter - October 15, 2008

Didn’t they use Zack’s real hair? It looks like he’s in one of the TNG-era vulcan wigs. Bummer.

98. Denise de Arman - October 15, 2008

YIPPPEEE-KI-AYE!!! Love the pic, and yes, it is obvious that for some reason Quinto has been photoshopped to death. Just seeing our two heroes together is enough to make us yes, TOG, shriek with girlish glee, and yes, TOG, it does look as though Kirk and Spock have never been closer…

Colonial)ne#78- Thank you for the link – interesting that the ear not shown in the first promotional poster is not shredded, chewed or mangled… wonder if both ears will eventually meet the same fate. All the photos at this site are great.

99. Scott - October 15, 2008

I like velour.

Scott B. out.

100. Dr. Image - October 15, 2008

Mr. Shit, meet Mr. Fan.

HERE WE GO!!!
WUUUUUU, MAN!

(That’s HEAVILY Photoshopped… and WHY no Kirk gold???)

101. Capt Mike From the Terran Empire - October 15, 2008

Ok. Things are heating up and now we are getting all excited. Now the trailer is coming out in under a month we are getting stills and wow. Please show us a still of the Big Enterprise her self. Please. Im about to burst with sheer excitment.

102. Kirk's Girdle - October 15, 2008

I don’t particularly like the shot of Quinto either – funny angle, funny expression, strangely lit. Pine looks fine, but he just looks like a good looking kid so far, not Kirk.

103. ster julie - October 15, 2008

Quinto’s hair looks airbrushed. We’ve already seen him in those early pictures, and even the first posters, It didn’t look so…lame.

Gotta see the rest ofthe pix now.

104. WVtrekker - October 15, 2008

Sweet!!

105. DGill - October 15, 2008

I agree with 104 on the airbrushing thing. Zach doesn’t look natural on this cover as opposed to Chris Pine. As for the latter, it’s easy to accept him as the new Kirk, but there’s this lingering thought in the back of my head that William Shatner’s Kirk (circa 1966) could whoop his ass any day. They’re definitely not on the same level (depending on how you look at the film of course). I simply accept it as it is.

106. DGill - October 15, 2008

Oops. I meant 103.

107. The Quickening - October 15, 2008

I just checked out the photo of Spock on AICN and once again I find that Quinto comes off as artificial and too obvious. No sense of interior depth. Just sorta over the top.

108. Thelin - October 15, 2008

This kind of reminds me of the Shatner / Nimoy (Desilu?) publicity photo with Nimoy holding an Enterprise model. I wonder if this is what they were going for with this pub shot.

109. Shaun - October 15, 2008

Oh Zachary… That wig they put on you is HORRIBLE. He looks about 12 in the picture. And I agree with DGiii in #105. Pine just looks all pretty-boyish, and Shatner could’ve kicked his snot-nosed ass any day. Hell, I bet the almost 80 Shatner could take him now! OK, maybe not. But the Star Trek IV, 1986 Shatner could’ve.

I need to see more pics, but I’m still not feeling anything for this movie. Sorry folks.

110. Third Remata'Klan - October 15, 2008

Okay, will all the whiners please STOP NOW.

Here it comes…………………….

111. ~~TARA~~ - October 15, 2008

How awesome…I can’t wait. I’m so excited now. I streamed when I saw the cover. I ended my subscription with EW a few months ago, now I have to go out and get this one.

Thanks to everyone posting links to AICN and such for extra pics. I love what I see. (But I do have to say that Spock’s look on the cover isn’t right…but looks good from the other pics).

112. paustin - October 15, 2008

you know what would have kicked ass, if they posed them like familiar tos press shots this one immediately comes to mind http://www.georgehernandez.com/h/aaBlog/2004/media/12-13_KirkAndSpock.jpg

113. asylumjn - October 15, 2008

One change is that the enterprise mission patch is silver. I like it.

114. SPB - October 15, 2008

The cover is fine enough, I suppose, but Pine and Quinto look positively shellacqued.

115. VOODOO - October 15, 2008

They look like wax figures of Nimoy and Shatner.

116. Gary - October 15, 2008

I think Zach’s eyebrows are what make him look a little off. ZQ has huge eyebrows…

117. John Trumbull - October 15, 2008

I agree that Spock looks very waxy on that EW cover. Quinto needs the Nimoy eyeshadow.

But looks great overall.

118. oakmonster - October 15, 2008

Total. Droolage. OMG. Hotness.

Geek girls rejoice!!!!

119. podo944 - October 15, 2008

Just for fun I found a few pics of original Spock…

His eyebrows look more natural rather than “painted on”.
His brows also seem to start right from the inner corner of the eye and has shadow below.

He’ll be a hard act to follow, but I think Quinto will pull it off. I think he’s a good actor.

120. bc kid - October 15, 2008

PLEASE tell me that Quinto won’t be wearing one of those fake laquered-down Vulcan wigs from “TNG” or “Enterprise”!!! That would be a HUGE let-down!!! Let’s see a new photo of Mr. Nimoy in full makeup!!! —
Atleast Leonard ditched his buzz-cut and grew his OWN hair out to play Spock again!!!

I think they have overlooked this little fact to appeal to the mainstream audience.

They do look good but they will NEVER take the place of the true Kirk and Spock- William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy

If its a good film I think I will be able to live with it but I would be preferring the originals to these new ones any day.”

Jeez, they just rolled out a pic. No one’s expecting them to replace Shat and Nimoy, they are just the latest actors to play the parts. You’ve seen one photo and thrown a ton of judgments it’s way.

Well, PIne looks awesome, but Quinto looks like just another wannabe Vulcan wearing that same ridiculous wig that we’ve seen over and over again in TNG/DS9/VOY/ENT. He looks really bad. I hope he’s not going to wear that wig throughout the movie. If thats the way he looks, then this is a big disappointment.

I’ve waited over 20 years to a see a real Vulcan, and Quinto looks like much of the same Bermaga crappy, plastic, I wannabe a vulcan but I have no conecept of Star Trek look still. Why didn’t Quinto grow his own hair for this.

I don’t understand, I thought the publicty photos were dead on. What happened?

These shots are CGI.

‘Spock’ looks like a startled jack-rabbit in that picture! lol So much for not showing emotion!

128. tog - October 15, 2008

Looks like a painting

129. Andy - October 15, 2008

Pine’s forehead is quite big. It kinda looks funny. I think the problem is that Entertainment Weekly photoshopped this photo too much. It looks all glossy and weird. But i’m definitely getting pumped for May now!!!

#129. Well the last thing we want in Kirk is a receding hairline! It would be…unprecedented!

131. Sarah - October 16, 2008

Now I can’t unsee it…

IIRC, the TOS uniforms have always been two parts; there are a few eps that show this. I seem to remember one with Nimoy pulling down his blue shirt over an obvious black undershirt.

138. trekboi - October 16, 2008

awesome- except for the airbrushing- lol

139. Brad - October 16, 2008

Spocklar looks like he’s 14. LuLz!!!

140. Wilson7777 - October 16, 2008

I hope Quinto’s costume is not the one used in the movie.

The insignia is not correct. It should be gold not silver. Then again, perhaps when they became crewmen on the Enterprise it changed?

141. SPB - October 16, 2008

#140-

Yawn. Will it really detract THAT much from the overall experience of watching the film…?

142. BrokebackTOS - October 16, 2008

143. Sébastien - October 17, 2008
