So this is Star Trek related because she happened to be in Star Trek? This is excellent Star Trek news.

“Later… Patrick Steward goes to check his mail, and after that Zoe Saldana wears clothing to an event. But first Zoe Saldana talks about how uncomfortable uncomfortable shoes are!”

Thank you for taking the time to post this I don’t know how I would have know this if it weren’t for you or pretty much any other entertainment site out there.

I really hope I’m not first.

Yeah, I just saw that I miss spelled Stewart

“So this is Star Trek related because she happened to be in Star Trek? This is excellent Star Trek news.”

I agree completely. Come on, I know it is slow Trek news week, but please don’t become OMG-Trek. :-)

Tats…blech. Not for me.

Thanks for the feedback, but remember you are allowed to skip the stories you are not interested in. Do not assume that your tastes are the tastes of all Star Trek fans. This site tries to cater to all trek fans, young and old, men and women, new and classic, etc and etc.

More, more. The fashion is sublime~!

I understand that I am allowed to skip what I am not interested in, that my tastes do not represent those of other readers and that I have absolutely no control over the content of this site and in no way should feel any sense of ownership of the site or friendship with editors, other contributors or the people who are the subject of posts. However, lately this site has been mostly “Hey, there’s somebody who was in Star Trek! Let’s follow them around and go nuts over them!” (Plus Zoe Saldana is the Trek star who cried “I have info on the sequel” a few to many times) Occasionally there are really great articles like the one on how Shatner could have been worked into the new film or the recent one on the animated series that never went anywhere. So, my options are either to sift through for things that are actual stories (not just pictures of people at events and captions about how they look) or avoid the site all together and miss out on the really good stuff has to offer. I suggest that there be a way to turn off or opt out of the “Saldana & Friends” related posts the same way that many tech blogs have a way to turn off Apple related posts before, durning and after big press events. This is a great site most of the time and I hate to see the quality suffer because of the lack of development in Star Trek.

i am sorry but i fail to see how it is so hard to skip over stories you are not interested in. All stories have excerpts on front page so you can scan quickly.

there is no filter of ‘all but’ however you can filter to categories, like

You dont have to read the articles with pictures and silly captains unless you go out of your way and click the link. So just dont click the link. Since this article went up about an hour ago, there is already a new exclusive star trek story up. I think that makes 8 stories in the last day…pick the ones you like, skip the rest.

if that is too hard, sorry.

‘The lack of development in Star Trek’.
That’s what it’s all about, isn’t it? A.g.a.i.n… You guys just can’t stand the fact that Star Trek is a little more mainstream now, that’s how it sounds to me. Why not showing pictures from people from the latest movie? I bet you wouldn’t mind if it was someone from the old cast. So that’s how you, as a fan of Trek, support the development? Well, I think the quality of does not suffer at all.

I hope Pine keeps that hairstyle for the next movie- looks more Kirk like than the one he had in the first one.

I must agree that Pine is looking eerily Kirk-ish in that photograph.

So, good casting choice there, he can act and even exudes something of a resemblance to the character as originally portrayed by Shatner.

Lets hope for a better sequel, with real engineering sets, rather than real locations being made up to be fictional.

Oh, and more of Urban’s McCoy and the Kirk-Spock-McCoy dynamic.

I thank you.

Not really of any relevance here, with perhaps the exception of poster three.

I often find it frustrating that there is a lack of an edit post button especially when you discover you have made one (or more) spelling mistakes. I am not singling out Trekmovie, but it is an example.

However, I was pleased to stumble across an add on for Internet Explorer, ieSpell. Which, at the right click of a button, will spell check what you are about to post and allow you to make corrections.

If you are interested, and it is free for personal use.

I find it often makes me look less of an imbecile than I actually am.

Thank you thank you thank you, Anthony for that “Precious Cargo”! I don’t see how anyone could complain about an article with her in it! Oh, if you’re into dudes, how `bout that Pine! Grrrrrrr…

Anyway, not sure that I saw that ENT episode but will certainly check it out!

Anthony, you should not have to defend your articles from a random critic, who doesn’t understand the concept of run-on sentences. Keep posting photos of Trek stars whenever you can find them.

Iman looks more like an alien than she did in that Trek movie… I thought those were thick, wiry hairs sticking out of Zoe’s armpit… ew!

Pine looks great, Padma is a vision of loveliness, Whoopi… well, thats Whoopi.

Anthony, I personally like ALL news about Star Trek.

I read every one you post.

Keep it up, and ignore all the negative people.

I think they hate just to hate.

notevilspiderman doesn’t get why we want to see photos of Zoe Saldana.

Go see the doctor before that thing drops off man.

xD Pine’s tux makes him look like he’s auditioning to be the next Doctor Who after Matt Smith xD

Iman is still hot (except the hair) though she is my mom’s age! LOL!

Well. Trek actors steppin’ out looking stylin’? I like this post. Thank you, TrekMovie, for bringing me Chris Pine in a blue tux to brighten my day.


Why what was wrong with Pine’s hair style in the last film.

Yes, I too love all news that has something to do with Star Trek. Even just a little. People who don’t like it can skip over it. That has been said a million times but for some reason they have a hard time understanding that concept.

@2 IT IS NEWS… If you dont like the channel, dont tune in!

Whoopie, you need a make over!

Anthony, keep doing what you doin’!

Notevilspiderman needs a life if he has time not only to read the articles that don’t interest him, but to also extensively comment on them and argue with the writers (to say nothing of not appreciating Zoe or Padma).

By the way, where are the fans that solved all those viral ad campaign puzzles–we need a translation of Zoe’s tattoo!!

I try and I try, but I just don’t get what everyone sees in Zoe. She’s mildly cute, yeah, but she’s skinny as a rail. I mean sickly skinny, not “hot” skinny like so many other “starlets” out there.

Eh, different all enjoy.

Some people have NO artistic sense when it comes to getting a tattoo. Looks like Zoe is one of them. I hate that she ruined such beautiful skin with that.

Anyone who criiticizes Anthony and this site because they didn’t get the articles he/she wanted might as well go somewhere else. Anthony and his staff put in many long hours and energy to bring us news relating to all things Star Trek. They do this presumably for FREE. They could just as easily shut this site down and do something else. I for one am deeply grateful to Anthony for the best site on the web. I happen to read all articles. There are some I enjoy more than others. Though I happen to enjoy the vast majority. Even the topics that I find to be the least interesting I read because I also enjoy reading other people’s comments.

Zoe is hot as always, and Chris is one dapper dude!

Zoe Saldana has a cool tattoo on her back.

She’s gorgeous, but that tattoo is nasty! Makes her look cheap.

Keep up the excellent work Anthony! Don’t listen to those ungrateful moaners.

I think the following:

1. Chris pine’s eyes are set for heavy stun–YEOW!
2. Zoe looks so gorgeous, and her tatoo says “Spock + Nyota”
3. Whoopi in a skirt IS a makeover!
4. Iman looks like the model she is, but I don’t understand trains on dresses. Trains belong on a track. They are dangerous!
5. I need to go watch “Precious Cargo” again.

Also, as far a posts go, we always have two choices–take ’em or leave ’em, right, Anthony? (Would LOVE to have an edit button, btw…)

@9: “You dont have to read the articles with pictures and silly captains” And who would those “silly captains” be? ;-) Damn these Freudian slips, ey? ;-P
